As history has illustrated - nothing generates poverty like left-wing policy. The "War on Poverty" has been a catastrophic failure which has resulted in an increase in poverty. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results each time. It is time to reverse course. Conservative policy generates prosperity. Left-wing policy generates poverty.

Government through education for all, good infrastructure and policing plays a huge roll in the stablity and the success of hundreds of millions of people in this country...

If it wasn't for government we'd have far more poor. Wake the fuck up.

What policies grew the middle class in the 20th century??? Liberal policies.
What time period had the bigger middle class and less poor? 1880 or 1950....The answer is simple! 1950...Unions, workers rights, education for all, etc.

Sure there'll still be poor but because of government no one is going to starve to death on the street.

You poor little nitwit....law enforcement is largely local. Nobody on this forum is talking about their local government. We are all discussing the federal government in 99.9% of all cases. Do try and keep up.

Conservative policies, nitwit. Did we have Medicare in the 1950's? Nope. Did we have Medicaid in the 1950's? Nope. Did we have Obamacare in the 1950's? Nope. Did we have legislation forcing hospitals to provide care for the uninsured in the 1950's? Nope. Did we have an EPA in the 1950's? Nope. Did we have a Department of Education in the 1950's? Nope.

The federal government was exponentially smaller and more constitutional in the 1950's, dimwit. Oops...

I agree. The more you give, the more people want. It helps when you don't have to work to earn a living.

There is no incentive to get off the Govt. dole so why bother especially when someone else's hard earned money is bankrolling you're life for you.

I haven't made it through half a cup of coffee yet and......daycare regulations?


See this?
Economic studies find that continued teacher training has a positive impact on childcare quality. Other factors, such as group size and child-staff ratios, do not affect childcare outcomes or safety, but they do drive up costs. Increasing the child-staff ratio by just one child reduces costs by 9 percent to 20 percent ($850 to $1,890 per year).



Yet, many states impose these regulations that drive up costs without demonstrating any benefit.
For example, many states have excessively low child-staff ratios, and they unnecessarily restrict the total number of children who can be in a group setting. This means that centers have to needlessly double up on space, supplies, and equipment so that they can limit the number of like-aged children in particular groups.

Explain to me how raising the child staff ratio is good policy?

Government fails at everything, but you see it as a force for good. How that is possible, is unexplainable other than it may prove you are an imbecile.

War on drugs, crime, cancer, poverty, etc....have ALL been miserable failures, but one thing has resulted from all these wars, which you no doubt refuse to see. That is the government has grown in power and wealth.

Government regulations, no matter what industry is being regulated, rises costs and limits competition. It also enriches the Oligarchy...the wealthy corporate 1%ers. It also empowers and grows the government bureaucracy and generates lots of campaign cash for the criminals in Congress.

But...those like Mattieboy, can't see the obvious corruption.

My favorite thing about "Patriot" the football star? He never tries of being wrong.

Social Security and Elderly Poverty
One has to be a complete idiot, to think the vast number of regulations promulgated by government today, is effective. In a word, it is a RACKET...the Mafia can only dream of.

You might not know this, but Social Security is NOT government regulations.

Of course it is. It's financial regulation...and it keeps people out of poverty.

SS is a social welfare government program. It is not what most people would call a government regulation and certainly is not the kind of regulations that harm Americans and our economy.

My link contradicts the thread title. SS, a government program, keep people out of poverty. That's just one. There's plenty more.

So...can we conclude that since you think SS is an effective regulation, the tens of thousands of other government regulations are effective too?

All evidence to the contrary. The poverty rate was dropping precipitously for decades and when the Feds started spending other people's money to "cure" poverty, that fall leveled off. Decades and trillions of dollars later, the poverty rate has worsened. Only a lefty would claim that a victory for the poor.

Once again, a leftist demonstrating that intentions are more important than results.

Pathetic.

Where does government derive the power to "keep people out of poverty"? In addition - why do you absolve people from the personal responsibility of keeping themselves "out of poverty".

Let me know when you think you can answer these basic questions.

Actually - Social Security puts people into poverty. I personally know people who lost a spouse and were forced to choose between receiving their spouses Social Security benefits and forfeiting their own, or receiving their own and forfeiting their spouses.

Either way - the government flat out stole 50% of what that married couple earned and deserved. Had the disgusting government not forced them into a program that nobody wants to be a part of, the remaining spouse would have had 100% of what they earned.

It's flat out crap and only ignorant left-wing children who can't take care of themselves are too fuck'n stupid to understand it.

Hold up. Mike Pence is familiar with this one. There are some churches that operate as a daycare. They often have entirely too many children per staff. The staff comes forward and says the situation is dangerous and it's a question of when something goes wrong. An open bottle of bleach is found in the kids bathroom. Further, they received over $20,000 in grant money. When pressed, the daycare and the Tea Party came out it was a violation of church and state.

There is a reason ratios are imposed. How many two year olds can you monitor at once? Realize they aren't all fully potty trained and they cannot tell you information. They cannot verbalize they are angry or frustrated.
