In response to Fukowi's comment:
In the early '60s, it took the National Gaurd to let black kids into public schools in Alabama. If we didn't brawl then, we won't brawl over taxes. You're probably all excited to face a tank with your AR15, but its just not the reality, Holmes. You won't get to. Like MLK said, the arc of human history is long, but it bends toward justice. That's what Obama was all about last night. Equality, justice, and a fair shot for everyone. All the Repoobs care about is hanging on to their money. That's why they didn't even clap for equal pay.
Case Study: In the '70 when we passed the Clean Air Act, GM, Ford and the US companies hired lawyers to figure out how to dance around the rules. Meanwhile, the Japanese comanies bit the bullet and invested in engineers and technologies to figure out how to make cleaner cars. Then the Japanese smoked us for a good 15 years. In this analogy, GM = repoobs. Toyota = dems. Repoobs are clinging to by-gone standards of living and social codes, such as the dominance of the white man, while Dems are trying to bring you the future.
HILARIOUS!!! Nice take on it's all about Black problems that need to be resolved.
So, you are saying that the War On Poverty either never happened, was a bad idea, ot the players on BOTH sides didn't want it to work? Amazing how "Education is the answer!" has been bantied about like "Want fries with that?" for low these decades (5, to be precise), and we (Yes, We, as in AMERICA) have this huge problem with high minority drop out, black crime on blacks, high minority unemployment, etc, despite trillions being dumped on the problem! Yet, here we are, 50+ years later, with the same problems. There's not much to show for it. What's up with that? Either no one wants to "learn" to improve their station in life, or the expectation is it'll be given to them (can you say: entitlement?). Which is it? I'd like to believe that anyone totally disatisfied with their life and wants it to change will work hard to do so. Look no further than Katrina, where up to 6 generations of minorities have been on the dole. (Many households with 3 genrations, the oldest being 35!) They admit that they can't get off the dole, as they whine thay they can't afford to go to work; they'd lose ground financially. Anyone see a problem with that? Seems to me that IF these folks had educated themselves starting in the 60's, this would be pretty much erradicated by now.
To get somewhere, you want to be somewhere, and you must want to work hard to get there. But, you keep on blaming whites. I have no problems with offering a hand up. It's the hand outs that get me concerned. And there are more demands for it.
