Subject: Poverty... They Just Don't Get It!

Poverty........


The following statistics from an article by Glen Beck of CNN.

What do the top ten cities with the highest poverty rate all have in common?

Democrat leadership. (Hmmm)  Bucky


Detroit, MI (1st on the poverty rate list) hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1961;

Buffalo, NY (2nd) hasn't elected one since 1954;

Cincinnati, OH (3rd)... since 1984;

Cleveland, OH (4th)... since 1989;

Miami, FL (5th) has never had a Republican Mayor; Whacko

St. Louis, MO (6th).... since 1949;

El Paso, TX (7th) has never had a Republican Mayor;

Milwaukee, WI (8th)... since 1908;

Philadelphia, PA (9th)... since 1952;

Newark, NJ(10th)... since 1907.  Shocked


Einstein once said "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."  Excellent

It is the disadvantaged who habitually elect Democrats - yet are still disadvantaged...    Loco

My brother has a sign hanging in his office, it says... "I've been rich, and I've been poor. Rich is better."
The key lies in the saying Dave Ramsey says all the time.  "You gotta leave the cave, kill something, and drag it back to the cave."  The major player there is the "YOU" not the government.  To many people forget We have to do it for ourselves.

You know, you could give each and every one of these butt heads a million dollars and inside of a year they'd be poor again. That money would be right back in the hands of those that have it now. There is a valid argument for the trickle up economy. The problem is NONE of these that could be smart and benefit longterm from it ever do. They just ask for even more the next time. This is exactly why socialism never works for very long. That and the absolute power of those in power corrupts them absolutely.
