    "Social scientists may dispute the degree of linkage between welfare and illegitimacy, but the vast majority agree that there is some connection. Even William Galston, President Clinton's Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Affairs, says that the welfare system is responsible for at least 15 to 20 percent of the family disintegration in America. Others, such as Charles Murray, attribute as much as 50 percent of illegitimacy to welfare. I believe that any objective look at the available literature on this topic indicates a strong correlation between the availability of welfare and out-of-wedlock births."

    "The Maryland NAACP recently concluded that "the ready access to a lifetime of welfare and free social service programs is a major contributory factor to the crime problems we face today." Welfare contributes to crime by destroying the family structure and breaking down the bonds of community. Moreover, it contributes to the social marginalization of young black men by making them irrelevant to the family. Their role has been supplanted by the welfare check. "

    "Forty-five percent of
    black women managers or professionals have had an illegitimate child,
    compared to 3 percent of managerial or professional whites. Half of all
    births in New York City are illegitimate, and in some neighborhoods the
    proportion reaches 80 percent. A 1997 survey by the federal government
    found that the percentage of black high-school students who said they
    have had sex was 73 percent, versus 44 percent for whites and 52 percent
    for Hispanics.

    "But it hasn't always been this way. In 1940, the black illegitimacy
    rate was 19 percent, less than what it is for whites now."

    But I thought birth control and abortion were supposed to stem the flow of illegitimate birth, out of wedlock birth, and poverty! Seems to have had the opposite effect, no?

    Logical fallacy, and one of the most retarded ones I've heard lately.

    Liar.

    When you use the word "logical fallacy" it helps if you know what it is.

    Bullshit....

    I've never seen a fine, law abiding and safe community where the majority are on welfare.

    You ever been to a housing project???

    You ever been to a low income community???

    It's not a fucking fallacy - fuck, I could prove it...

    There is more crime (violent crime especially) in low income areas than areas with less poverty - middle class/upper middle class/rich.

    No, they listed them.

    Perhaps you can only read "marquis"
