    Re: Are you smarter than The Obama?

    You'd be guessing wrong. Suppose you are going to be a parent and then you find out that there is a new program aimed at helping your child reach their full potential. It's well funded, and designed to help you be a better parent with free educational programs and other services (such as monitoring your child's nutritional needs to see that they are met properly from the very start), to see to it your kid has full medical coverage up to the age of majority, and to provide the very best education any money can buy, tailored to your child's personal needs.

    No one is going to turn that down.

    This is an investment in a whole generation, with no holds barred, aimed at eliminating the current social and class disparities that would normally interfere with your kids ability to reach their potential, starting from birth and continuing to the age of majority. It would allow us to phase out the current social programs which inadequately seek to make up for all those kids growing up without these sorts of benefits.


    Every child deserves the best shot we can give them, and this program would see to it they got it. People want their kid to have access to the American Dream.. well here's an engraved golden ticket.

    Of course it will cost a lot of money. But as I said, it's an investment. Imagine what that generation might be able to accomplish. There is no better investment for capital anywhere.

    I'm saying that you should address the "cumulative factors" methodically. Isolate and study them. Study them in various combinations with other factors. Eventually you'll be able to assign a value to each factor which should sum up to 100% to explain outcomes without resorting to any genetic explanation. Any shortfall needs to be explained.

    You can cling to your evolution denying ways but then you're really no different from religious creationists who think that god put us on this earth 6,000 years ago after creating man in his image and creating woman from Adam's rib. Your myths are really no different than theirs.

    We don't want everyone to be the same and get the same. That's insane and impossible. We want everyone to play on a level playing field, and we have tried to make policy to reflect that. We understand that everyone's potential is not going to be the same, but if you start from birth, then you can remove those factors which liberals claim are the cause of the disparity.

    If you can honestly tell liberals that every child will enter the adult world as prepared to succeed as they are personally capable of being, then you will get no arguments.

    Liberals will probably ask that the social programs be phased out as the new generation steps in, but when all is said and done, 30 years down the road, there really should be no need for those programs. Because the first generation of kids through the program will have been a part of the adult world for at least 11 years, and will be able to influence the rest of us to make the necessary changes to take us the rest of the way. I call that serious dividends on an investment.

    If you say so. I work in a liberal-saturated environment and I'm pretty certain that if I laid out your program to those of my acquaintance that they'd all be aghast at a program which resulted in a widening of the achievement gap and a widening of income inequality gap between races even though it made the lives of all parties incrementally better.

    Look at what's happening on the income inequality front. Liberals are blowing steam out of their ears about the RELATIVE increase in income inequality and they are not mollified by the ABSOLUTE increase in living standards that accumulate to the poor.

    Why should I expect a different reaction to your scheme when I see with my own eyes the reaction that I detail taking place on a similar issue?

    Liberals will probably ask that the social programs be phased out as the new generation steps in, but when all is said and done, 30 years down the road, there really should be no need for those programs.
    You're crafting a romanticized vision of liberals, one where they are thoughtful and rational. You have no evidence to back up that portrait. I've never heard of a liberal politician ever declaring that it was time to end a social program. Liberals love big, activist government. More programs means they have more opportunity to meddle.

    Look at how affirmative action has changed and expanded over the years. It now includes all sorts of minority groups in its mandate.

    which "myth", that there is no evidence that people of the so-called Negro race are no less intelligent than people of the so-called Caucasoid race?

    you show me IQ tests done on 10,000 middle-class Caucasoids compared to the IQ tests done on 10,000 middle-class Negros, and then we can chat.

    until then, save it for the Prisonplanet forum.

    folks who go to trade-schools can end up becoming part of the lower-upper class.

    its not uncommon to see a carpenter or mechanic making more than 100k.

    .
    of course it does, it tells blacks that they can't compete with whites without special consideration. ergo, blacks aren't as good as whites. racist at its core

    Re: Are you smarter than The Obama?

    I think most of the honest people on this forum would agree that Obama is smarter. The more important question is whether Obama is smarter than those who have said they want to run against him, and I have not seen one come forward to date who is smarter than Obama IMO.
