    Three Simple Rules Poor Teens Should Follow to Join the Middle Class

    It has nothing to do with oppression, race, religion, etc.

    Follow three simple rules and you will not be poor:

    #1) Graduate High School

    #2) Get a job

    #3) Don't become a single parent.

    This is from the LEFT leaning Brookings Institute. One way to pay down debt and improve our budget is to reduce entitlements such as welfare and this is a start.

    Today, more than 40% of American children, including more than 70% of black children and 50% of Hispanic children, are born outside marriage.

    The above is ridiculous. I would even consider paying young women NOT to have kids until marriage or they can afford it to make sure they don't get on welfare and continue this cycle.

    I welcome all your thoughts. Even the crazy Leftist ones.

    & 4 yrs trade school nights

    Built my own biz & farm

    No choice in that, but still made sure my kids did 1&2

    Now allow me to take your simplistic formula a step further

    I live like a KING, well below the poverty line

    I'm actually eligible for a plethora of handouts, which i don't take

    digest that, and get back to me


    thx

    You're not the problem. People who take the handouts are. My parents came here with $100 and didn't speak the language. Sponsored by a Jewish group. My dad has paid them back 10-fold and has sponsored eight other families on top of that. My parents aren't the problem either. But you know who is. The ones who don't follow 1-3.

    do you work per diem?

    could you have a word w/my wife?

    heh

    both my Gfathers escaped the old country's poverty , were fitted for uniform as soon as they got of the boat @ Ellis, summarily being sent back to the fray they sought escape from

    methinks the first english they learned was 'duck!':eek-52::eek-52::eek-52:

    but i digress. inasmuch as i do agree with 1,2,3 there are no simple solutions to complex social constructs Az

    I would actually pay a stipend to young ladies not to get pregnant before they turn 21. I am serious. Would likely cost us less than what we are paying now.

    How about this....

    You can have two kids.

    Have a third, and you are fined $1 million.

    If you can't pay, you are castrated or shot.

    Have a fourth and you are shot, period....


    We are in STAGE 1 of human overpopulation on Planet Earth.

    We need to be much more "PRO DEATH" if we are to survive while allowing freedom of religion, the #1 source of the overpopulation....

    And so the right pushes to ban abortions... states with strongest anti abortion laws have most unwed mothers. Ouch.
