    Wait, but there is more:
    I never said 'very poor', I said poor/low-income- two different things (you're changing the goalposts...if you're not, please show me where I said 'very poor'). I have only used two terms: poor and low-income. My sources supported my point and yours did nothing to go take away from it.

    We are in the throes of an Affirmative Action Revolution. If they can't beat you on MERIT they'll choke you on POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

    I came across this image at Hillbuzz this morning. Pretty good.

    Semantics? really?


    ok, you talk about that low income school. Are they not "very poor"? are you now calling it "middle class"?


    My sources showed you that no, the military is not recruiting poor/very poor at a higher rate than anyone else, and going by the numbers it is clear that the middle class and the rich are over represented in the military while the poor/very poor are underrepresented.


    The semantics game has failed.

    I said poor/low-income. Very poor is not the same as poor just as very rich is not the same as rich. Those phrases are meant to indicate extreme wealth and poverty.

    I'll repeat it again:
    All of the Army's top 20 counties for recruiting had lower-than-national median incomes, 12 had higher poverty rates, and 16 were non-metropolitan, according to the National Priorities Project, a nonpartisan research group that analyzed 2004 recruiting data by Zip code.
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...110302528.html

    Your article mentioned nothing about recruitment. In fact, the word 'recruit' is no where in it. I don't even see why this is significant enough for you argue about.

    So that school you've mentioned before is not "Very poor"?



    your mincing words.



    I'll repeat it again:

    What about the other three branches? cherry picking again?


    anyway, are we talking about poor education? Most rural schools are actually pretty good, so your point is inconsistant.

    You keep twisting what I'm saying and making my actual arguments into other one's. You've done this in several threads and to several other posters. I'm done. I've told you what teachers in low-income schools have said, I've shown what nonpartisan studies have said. Both support my argument. There is nothing more to say.

    What the hell, is this BS.

    Blacks should be highly offended over this because it's clearly RACIST.

    What ever happened to equality? Every time the standards are lowered for any minority it is a slap in the face and for the minority to accept it without a fuss it's an admission of being of a lower caliber than others.

    If you are offended by this tough I'm no the one who asked for the lower standards.

    ^ Exactly.
