It was really only a matter of time.
I'm not a member of a party, but I'm sure if I said Mississippi is full of white trash you wouldn't have a problem with that type of comment. You've been conditioned to think a certain way.
Obviously, you've been conditioned to hate poor people.
I love it. You, unprovoked, give a conditioned response to a topic that had nothing to do with race, and I'm conditioned. Go on tell me more.
Not necessarily all poor folk, just the dark skinned poor folk.
Gee..we always hear people on the left talking about the much higher poverty rate in the black community now it's suddenly a forbidden topic.
I love it. You're either a troll or so willfully blind that it's just laughable.
Nobody's saying information about poverty rates is forbidden. What's just pathetic is you saying that the reason Mississippi has such a disparity between federal taxes paid and federal monies received is Mississippi's black population.
People bring up the poverty rates of black Americans because it is a problem and we need to help correct it. You brought it up to have a scapegoat to blame. You're just a bigot.
So we can only discuss race within the context of white oppressor and black victim.
... Are you retarded?
Pretty much what I said it meant.
No actually he is right. The majority of medicaid, welfare, federal education dollars etc. are spent on the black communities in Southern states. They make up the vast majority of the poor in the South and therefore receive most of the federal money. It's not really their fault, they have been poor for generations for obvious reasons, but they are the biggest drain on federal dollars in the South. Facts are facts.
The Left loves to lament the black plight in this country, but refuses to openly discuss the problems specifically and how to deal with it. You want to have your cake and eat it too.
There is a map online somewhere that compares the number of federal dollars spent per county set next to a demographics map and when looking at the South this fact becomes pretty obvious. There are exceptions especially in Appalachia as well, but the point still stands.
I will see if I can find it...
It proves what I have said about Alabama and Mississippi to be true.
The mountain Hillbillies are really on the dole though...lol.
Democrats can kiss my dawgy ass.
Not necessarily creepy, more lazy...want handouts, think everything should be given to them thru no effort of their own.
Democrats are the twenty something in moms basement, eventually mom dies.
So unbelievably ignorant and stupid. Your thinking is incredibly lazy.

This is true. However, it's not just black Americans, it's poor Americans. Welfare reform is most certainly in order. A federal stipulation that they look for a job while on welfare would be a step in the right direction. Capping the amount of consecutive years you can be on welfare would be another. Removing the child tax credit for those on welfare with more than 2 children would also be a step in the right direction. If we're truly serious about welfare reform, then these folks must be educated. They must attend some sort of vocational training, along with these other stipulations, at the very minimum while on welfare.Once there vocational training is completed or their degree is earned they will have 1 year to find a job or start their own business, before welfare is removed. Now obviously some of the cost, probably a small portion would be offset by the reformation of the child tax credit. But it has to be paid for somehow, so a raise in taxes would obviously be necessary. But, as you can see this requires both sides of the aisle. If you were in congress do you think you'd vote for this kind of welfare reform?
Yep. And I'm sure there are many fairly straightforward passages from the bible where opinion is fairly uniform.
But here was my point. Your opinions on Christianity and the bible do not hold any more value than CMXI. And to suggest that your interpretation of scripture is the "Christian interpretation" and the "correct one" is preposterous. Forget the fact that you have no academic background in religion... Your perspective is Southern Baptist.
There are what? 15 million of you? Dude, there are 1.2 billion Catholics in the world that would strongly disagree with many, many things your pastor is telling you. Even if I remove Catholics from the equation, in the scope of Christianity Southern Baptists represent a radical fringe group. I mean hell, you're not even Protestant (800 million). Also, SB's do not answer to a central authority. Each SB church is autonomous. That means that your pastor's views could differ significantly from the SB pastor two blocks down the street.
Your views on individual accountability, btw? Very, very Southern Baptist. It's one of your central tenets. But you can't hold that up as a "Christian" belief.
It's one thing to acknowledge their plight and try to come up with ways to alleviate the issues. It's another to blame them for the problems.
You actually have to give a shit to try and come up with ways to alleviate those issues.
