    I repeat:

    Newt Gingrich: Poor kids don't work "unless it's illegal" :eek:

    Ladies and gentlemen, your GOP front runner. The war on the poor is alive and well in the Republican party. Good luck in 2012.

    Like I said before Newt is not a nice man.

    He will say this and much much more to show his real heart.

    He doesnt like most of the American people.

    You can say that again. I know that Newt will be Newt, and Republicans have made no secret of their disdain for the poor, but this is un.be.lievable.

    Obviously..Mr. Gingrich is no fan of Charles Dickens.

    It's a way of life in the slums and ghettos. If people don't want to believe that the drug dealers and criminals don't employ children that's just wishful thinking. Kids are couriers, pushers, lookouts and sometime killers. They are shoplifters, pickpockets, and flash mob assaulters to grab what they can. Girls can start working as prostitutes when about ten.

    There is an idealized vision of children that doesn't exist everywhere, not even everywhere in this country.

    As far as holding down a job, there isn't a role model for these children. Dad, if Dad can be identified at all doesn't work. Mom's boyfriends don't work. Mom doesn't work. Taking off the blinders would go a long way to dealing with the criminal class.

    Dealing with it..would mean upgrading the schools to the level of their wealthy counter parts.

    Schools in poorer neighborhoods receive much less funding..and talent then those in better neighborhoods.

    Well, yeah, no shit. SOME -not all, and not even most - poor children in inner-cities are living in those conditions; but to lump all poor children into that category is not only the most ignorant thing I've heard in quite a while, but it also makes Newt, you and the rest of the cons who are actually defending this out of touch piece of shit, sound like complete assholes. If this is your nominee; if you really think that this is a winning message; you are seriously delusional.
