    Not sure if I understand the question.

    I make less that I'd like to make. I live in a nicer home than what's average from what they told me at closing. I have a 24/7 job; even if I'm not at work I'm usually tied to the place via laptop, iPad or iPhone usually if its after hours to deal with problems.

The problems more than anything else are the conditions they required that in effect changed the culture of minority families by emasculating and driving fathers out of the family to where now absentee fathers is normal. Secondly, there seems to have been no comprehensive plan to get disadvantaged Americans caught up economically to where they would eventually graduate out but it seems the whole idea was to create a permanantly dependent class. So drive fathers out of the family and get people on welfare for their whole lives and then pass it down to subsequent generations.

    Welfare needs to be a temporary safety net or if conditions exists where the circumstances that led to poverty in some cases are themselves permanant then a comprehensive approach needs to be applied that includes education, vocational training, citenzenship, household budgeting, basic home maintance, auto care, child rearing and yes promotes a 2 parent commitment for life as the ideal, nutrition, etc. I'm thinking 4 to 5 years and every welfare recipient should be graduated out of dependency.
    That will never happen; welfare, like all other federal programs, will be permanent and expanded.

    That's pretty much what I meant. From what I've read in your posts you seem like you are an intelligent guy who wins more often than you lose. Perhaps that's the issue. You have taken control of your life and are playing to win.

    I wouldn't say I'm the shining example of success. Whatever I have achieved I give God the credit and I think the future is bright.

    I can't see how anybody can think I'm intelligent by my posts here with all the the typos I don't see until the 25 minute time limit on no further editing has passed, but thanks. Interestingly, I was an average student; did well in the classes I liked but HORRIBLE in the ones I didn't like. My love for learning new things didn't really take off until long after I was out of school. Thankfully there's the Internet and open source education. I plan to take some classes soon on Coursera- free online university classes and recommend it to everyone. It doesn't apply toward a degree but they're the same classes the students take at the top universities in the world. One Harvard professor was shocked to learn she had 50,000 students in her class! Plus there are dozens of free Ivy League classes on Roku. I guess everyone learns and matures at that own pace and I was a late bloomer.

    These "sins" can be controlled and then erased by acceptance...much like alcoholism.
    Polls, we love our polls, do we not..
    Now imagine a poll taken in the 50s " Do you like and or respect the Negro .."
    What percentage of answers would be honest ?
    1% ?
    10% ??
    Of course, a poll of this nature would never happen , but today - it might ..

    It's a database and that was just one article. It's also set up like Wiki for self-editing.

    Are you disputing the content? If so, how about some input?
