    There isn't a dumbocrat on this board who has lived a life 1/10th as difficult as Michael Oher. He went from extreme poverty, to multi-millionare. And he did it without government. In fact, he achieved what he was able to achieve through his own hard work and through the charitable actions of free-willed Americans.

    In his book "I Beat The Odds", he writes: “It’s true that we can’t help the circumstances we’re born into and some of us start out in a much tougher place than other people. But just because we started there doesn’t mean we have to end there

    Oher, Michael (2012-02-07). I Beat The Odds: From Homelessness, to The Blind Side, and Beyond (Kindle Locations 125-126). Gotham. Kindle Edition.

    From homeless poverty to multi-millionaire, all without the help of government.

    Yes, Michael Oher would have likely died a violent ghetto death without help from a goodhearted woman.

    So, now all you charitable righties have to do is help all the other Michael Ohers out of poverty (room, board, education, love and family) and then maybe we can talk about reducing government social programs for the poor.

    Sooo, get busy...

    You can't help those who don't want to help themselves - look at how much money we pissed away on the Indians!

    Here is the problem rott. Your pretty much saying only 1 in 150 million get pretty much what comes down to a lotto. Also your leaving out the part thet he is 6'7 360 lbs, what happened to that other ghetto kid? He died. Rott your logic never fails to amaze me with the epic levels at which you can't see or understand the bigger picture.

    Lessee...he went to public schools (that's government help)

    Was in and out of the foster care system (that's government help), put there by the actions of child protective services (that's government help).

    He went to the University of Mississippi on a scholarship, (which is at least partially government help).

    He drives to work each day on public highways (that's government help) and when the team flies to a game, they do so under the guidance of air traffic controllers (that's government help).

    Need I go on?

    Don't you have all those things? Don't we all? Why doesn't everyone do what he did?
