    As you will notice, discrimination is one tool used to create poverty by limiting opportunities in many different areas of society, and why we still have Affirmative Action programs. Here is a little enlightenment on poverty, followed by a couple of questions that require logical, cognitive answers.

    "The lack of basic security connotes the absence of one or more factors enabling individuals and families to assume basic responsibilities and to enjoy fundamental rights. The situation may become widespread and result in more serious and permanent consequences. The lack of basic security leads to chronic poverty when it simultaneously affects several aspects of people’s lives, when it is prolonged and when it severely compromises people’s chances of regaining their rights and of reassuming their responsibilities in the foreseeable future."

    Extreme poverty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "The poverty threshold, or poverty line, is the minimum level of income deemed necessary to achieve an adequate standard of living in a given country."

    1.Suppose somehow we significantly reduce racial discrimination. Will total poverty fall?


    2.Suppose we give poor people effective skill training and compensatory education. Will total poverty fall?

    Liberals enable and breed generational poverty, something our Founders took into consideration for eradication when designing our system.

    The ones that perpetuate the drug war do. That goes for liberals as well.

    We've had programs at the Federal level to help the poor for 75 years or longer and the best offered is "are conservatives fanning the Flames Of Poverty and we have more in the grasp of poverty;not as a percentage but in actual numbers than ever?:eusa_eh:

    Are we not supposed to discuss how Obama and the Dems have set records for driving Americans into poverty just like Roosevelt's New Deal?

    What's the Exit Strategy for LBJ's 45 year long "War on Poverty"?

    In spite of racial discrimination and poverty, at schools with the worst dropout rates and poorest graduation percentages, you can generally find a handful of students who do well in such environments. And I contend it is because they come to school with an attitude that they're going to succeed rather than with attitudes exhibited by most of their fellow students.

    Those who turn their backs on opportunity are doomed to a life of poverty.
