    Re: Death Threats Against Al Green

    Again, where are you getting your information about what a community organizer does, exactly?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    We have somewhere around one in ten people unemployed. It's not that easy to go out and "get a job", when you don't have skills or experience needed to get anything above minimum wage. You also have to consider people in these areas who do have jobs often have very low quality jobs, and are more likely to have issues transporting to anywhere with a good job market.

    First off, why wouldn't you have a skillset that you can apply?
    You also have to consider people in these areas who do have jobs often have very low quality jobs, and are more likely to have issues transporting to anywhere with a good job market.
    Well, there's always the option to go where the jobs are, oh, but that would require sacrifice, investing in yourself, and initiative.......which actually requires work instead of going to a government office with hand out.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Why would you? If you haven't worked very much, didn't get a good high school education, haven't been to college, or gone to a trade school, what skills do you expect people to have?

    Your hatred and biases against the general population below the poverty line makes this conversation impossible. When your default assumption is "poor people are lazy leeches", you're too biased to listen to anything.

    So, don't prepare for life and pass it on to someone else huh? Sounds like a personal failure = personal problem situation to me.

    I don't see how you get that from anything I've said, I don't have a problem with people who are truly unfortunate, but if someone ****s their own life up it is their responsibility to fix it and no one else's. Community organizers don't fix problems, they simply shift the burden to actual producers and wreak havoc. Again, **** them and there is a special place in hell for them.

    So in this conversation we're talking bout low-income communities in general...

    "Well, there's always the option to go where the jobs are, oh, but that would require sacrifice, investing in yourself, and initiative.......which actually requires work instead of going to a government office with hand out."

    You just automatically assume that they're all going to go get a "handout" because they don't want to work. You have no idea what you're talking about, as many of these programs help you find a job while you're on them, or help train you. Remember, welfare was replaced with workfare in the 90's, not that most conservatives have noticed.

    And I want to say there's been other threads where you've said similar things, but I'm not up for trekking around looking for them.

    I do ask, where are you getting your information on what a community organizer does?
