    One of the things that Nixon started and Reagan picked up on, that I liked was the 'ownership' deal for the working poor. Qualify them for something they can pay and buy into. Surprising how much better one keeps up one's own home.

    Absolutely Kathianne, that's true of anyone!! But an ownership society doesn't translate into votes for liberals :(

    Maybe, maybe not. Hard to tell on that one Bonnie. I know that Park Forest was a 'planned' community-which did let some 'working poor' buy into small homes in the 70's. They are still voting Democrat, though it was Nixon who made it possible.

    Then again, maybe not. They or rather their children, could be my neighbors here in DuPage County. ;)

    Blacks are perpetually poorer because they're inherently less intelligent. Read "The Bell Curve." This, of course, is a great taboo, so the neocons at townhall.com won't go near it, but that doesn't mean it's not true.

    How much longer can America pretend that blacks are poor and uneducated because whites have deprived them ? It's the huge lie that black leaders continually try to perpetrate but it's still a lie. Even white leaders have joined the bandwagon to appear PC and attract the liberal vote. Mass poverty will exist all long as America refuses to accept the truth. The generations of welfare families that have been created out of white guilt do not want to work.
    One of the things badly needed in LA right now is LABOR. Will the welfare population jump at the chance to earn a living for themselves and their children? Maybe the hispanics will simply push them out by working harder.

    I can think of one group of people who are less intelligent than blacks-neo-Nazis. Particularly pansy 21st century neo-Nazis. Boo!!!!

    It's cute how you two pat each other on the back. It's like Hitler and Goering giving each other 69. You guys are so cute......now go execute each other.

    Instead of flinging around stupid comparisons to Nazis, why don't you try to refute what has been said?
