    It’s not possible today. Most schools their annual tuition alone is more than someone could make working all year. Not all that long ago, a person could work full-time all summer and have their year’s tuition saved up…working during school for “incidentals.”

    Good luck doing that today.

    And a WHOLE LOT of the things in that video are issues minorities have done (and continue to do) to themselves in spite of every effort made to get them on “equal” footing with “whites.”

    Hell, the vast majority of “whites” have the exact same issues, but nothing is done about it.

    In every nation (no exception) those who have the wealth have it better than those who do not. Blaming color or nationality for it in this day and age is really “racist.” There are tons of “majority” people who don’t have lives of privilege.

    More ironically….

    A doll being adapted to fit every culture on Earth so that a physically impossible body image can be imparted on every little girl on the planet.

    Does she come with a genital mutilation kit? If not, I’m not buying.

    That’s a joke for those of you wusses who have your panties in a wad.

    Mixed feelings.

    Jews are commanded to do infant circumcision. I would have preferred my parents NOT making the choice for me since we weren’t Jewish.

    The easiest way to be successful and political is to be an equal-opportunity offender. At least then people wonder if you’re taking sides or not, and they know there’s a 50/50 chance of your joke being funny to THEM.

    Ben, really? THIS surprises you?

    Okay…I’ll be fair. I’ve had times where I presumed the worst about someone then was surprised how they were ever WORSE than my estimations.

    The main problem with Trump that the Bush clan is opposing him is that he won’t be a RINO or will back policies the Bush clan don’t support. I’m not a big fan of Trump for concern of what he’d really do and how he’d go about doing it, but the Bush clan is doing a type of “scorched earth” plan here. Jeb will N-E-V-E-R be POTUS. America is done with dynastic presidencies. Had G.W. not offended so many conservative values, perhaps he’d have a shot, but it’s over. So, if Jeb is never going to be POTUS and the Bush clan isn’t going to get what they want from Trump being POTUS, they are putting their clout into opposing Trump.

    Nothing “noble” or “honorable” about it. The only “good” thing you can say about it is that Jeb’s “disposability” gives him the freedom to say things against Trump that others trying not to look like mudslingers might choose not to say.

    The issue of education and student loans is a complex one, but the simplest and perhaps best solution is to abolish all student loans (government and private). Many schools will close, and those that survive will have to reduce operations only to those things that involve education (not making the campus into Club Med).

    Employers will have to resume the job of training new hires either through apprenticeships or trainee wage jobs while new hires learn then prove their competency in the job. It would restore the supply/demand curve of education in the workplace and make people with advanced degrees valuable again (a big part of the problem is that too many have degrees for the workplace to absorb).

    You can’t throw money at education. If everyone has advanced education, it has no market value. A market-driven approach does favor those who come from wealthy families, but even social services people I know lament that there aren’t many “innovative” ways to get job skills to people in need in a short period of time (welfare is a minimum of 3 months…often terminating after that). Most people who need job skills don’t have 2 to 4 years to train for a decent job. Even most certificate programs are 6-12 months.

    We need smarter ways to training the workforce, not more “cheap credit” to pay for a failed system.

    Or in simpler terms….

    If you make an employer pay workers more than the market says they are worth, the employer will insist on picking the very best of the lot.

    Of course, if we got rid of minimum wage laws, you’d have a race to the bottom with all the illegals competing with the existing unemployed. That’s why we have immigration policies…to protect the domestic workforce from being devalued to nothing and infrastructure from being pushed beyond its limits.

    In reply to the contribution Is The Federal Minimum Wage Unconstitutional?

    Full heart…empty head.

    Carter genuinely cares about a lot of important issues, but you can be messed up in how you think is the best way to solve a problem.

    I don’t see other former presidents working on Habitat for Humanity projects.

    I’m not saying what they depict in the video DOES NOT happen, BUT I find a lot has to do with the community. When you have people who look like you acting like THUGS, the natural reaction of the masses is to look at you as if you are part of them.

    How do you think those of us who live in rural WHITE areas feel if you’re poor? Ever hear of “trailer trash?” Ever been looked down upon because you sound too “country” or aren’t as “literate” at others? Even around here, I’ve seen the LOCAL media find the most toothless country “hick” they can find to put on TV for a story as if somehow that person is representative of the average person in the street for that community.

    Fits the narrative, right?

    Jimmy Carter…the kiss of death to political careers since the 1970′s.

    Like him as a person, but GAD, he has bad instincts for picking winners.

    CAIR complaining of “attacks” is the pot calling the kettle black.

  • [9] February 3, 2016 at 11:05am

    He nailed it though.

    I was raised a Democrat. Guess when I changed….

    WHEN I REALIZED THEY WERE FEEDING ME LIES.

    The Bernie supporters don’t know how stuff works and don’t realize there’s no such thing as a free lunch.

    He just pulled an Al Gore.

    It’s over for him if anyone remembers the debacle of 2000.

    Thank you Supreme Court.

    And people don’t understand why nobody in their right mind would LOVE working for a call center. (lol)

    We have Aetna. It’s a fairly sucky company. Fortunately, we have HSAs set up, so at least you can manage doctor visits by putting into the HSA each paycheck. Aetna is only good should you have to go to the ER or have a big bill during the year.

    Yet, it somehow “meets” Obamacare standards. It’s really no better than the cheap “major medical” coverage from 20 years ago.

    Didn’t we have a “socialist” in 2008 and 2012?
