    You got that right. You should hear the uproar in my house.

    A lot of folks had stay-at-home Moms, including me, and those are fighting words when you talk bad about my Mom.

    Because wealthy is pretty subjective. The Obama administration thinks it's anyone making over $250k.

    How many times have we heard the woes of the unemployed college graduates?

    Right now with unemployment being so damn high even the well educated can't secure employment - and you're fussing over the dropout rate? If our education system was better than it is we wouldn't have very many dropouts to speak of because it would be designed to graduate students before they were technically considered *adults* and able to drop theirselves from the system.

    You're looking for flaws and issues - and you're looking in the wrong fishinghole.
    I dropped out in 9th grade because I had to support myself or continue to bounce around foster homes. I've never been unemployed since I was 15 and now I'm working on my second Master's.

    Of course it's subjective, but subjectivity can't stop nations from coming up with tax rates.

    That's really inspirational, but "control" isn't a black and white issue. There's a lot of influence, circumstance and knowledge that determines how one controls their life.

    I didn't imply it would, but, If you think a family income of 250k in Chicago, DC, NY, etc, etc, is wealthy...then you are out of touch with reality.

    No, there's just a little bit of ambition necessary. Lack of that is the only thing that keeps you down...not "rich white folk".

    You don't even need to be all that bright, TPD, look at me after-all.

    250K in one of those places might very well be wealthy depending on the area. Also, when did Obama say that 250K is wealthy?

    My guess is that the perps are doing wrong too often, as they keep gettng caught...
    Rehabillitation was invented to create jobs for a segment of society that is otherwise unemployable.
    Crooks that re-offend can't learn from their own mistakes, and for the most part it is a waste of resources to deal with them.
    Give them one shot at it, if that doesn't work, let them eat prison fare.

    I disagree. You can have ambition and still not know how to practically apply it to the world. You be born into an environment where you never learn that you are capable of being successful. Reducing our actions to single things like choice or ambition does not give credit to all the other things that influence our behavior.

    You don't even need to be all the bright, TPD, look at me after-all.
    Don't be so hard on yourself.
