    C'mon now. You're an honest guy.

    Quote where I said that ""Civil rights legislation created a sub class dependent on government largesse"".

    I said no such thing.

    But, I have no way of knowing what's in your head, just what the words you post say.
    That's right, which is why I'm asking you to quote what I said, not what you think I said.

    The feck you didn't.

    "LBJ deserves a lot of credit from the Democrats for creating a sub class to become dependent on government largess."

    ~ Grant
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Zero evidence this is happening. The Republicans, who claim to be against unnecessary regulation, sure like regulations when convenient to their purposes.

    Does that mention civil rights legislation at all?

    Again, where did i say """Civil rights legislation created a sub class dependent on government largesse".

    It was other programs which created a sub class culture, not civil rights legislation. I also mentioned BHO and Unions at the same time. Do you feel this also refers to civil rights legislation?

    Leftists are sooooooooooo stupid!

    Here's one take, among many, on LBJ's "Great Society"programs.

    No, conservatives are against unnecessary regulation. Rebublicans, no matter what label they like to wear, are rarely actual conservatives.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No, it's pretty common for anyone to assume that when a person is a self-confessed conservative (says "conservative" right on the front page) their publications will also have a conservative skew to them.

    I wouldn't expect you to believe that a Black Panther publication was an objective view of civil rights, either.


    But I'm not closed minded like some people - nor am I "left" for that matter.

    The subject of the post you were responding to was civil rights legislation.
