    It was a little chilly this morning. I had to put on my mink slippers.

    They rely on government handouts, right? That's leverage.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    - Focus more on encouraging Americans in starting businesses.

    - Mandate a portion of each Americans income be withheld and invested into an indexed, tax sheltered mutual fund they get to start spending at age 60 in portions amatorized to match their remaining life expectancy and is fully willable without tax penalty upon their death.

    - Improve education by extending government funded education beyond 12th grade to a four year degree, especially in high demand high income 21st century careers like medical, engineering, science and technology. Get creative in earlier grade levels with the use of technology by enhancing students' access to instruction from a range of sources including the best classes from anywhere in the world via multi-media, interactive computer networking.

    - Place legal restrictions on personal consumer indebtedness.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    I believe the government should make sure every citizen has emergency shelter, food, clothing and medical care (full medical care for children/the disabled) to survive reasonably comfortably.

    Outside of that, individual financial prosperity should be up to the individual. And there should be no laws or taxes that favor the rich OR the poor; big corporations or small businesses...no benefits for anyone.

    I absolutely agree, and the money to pay for those things does not need to come out from anyone but by simply getting the countries resources back from those who hijacked it.

    I believe many poor are misinformed and brainwashed by the media which pretends to care for the poor in order to fool them, like the Fox News pretends to be Christian and non main stream when it is in fact an international network itself. same with liberal networks such as MSNBC. same with so called public networks such as PBS - nothing public about it, so what if they get government funding and collect donations - it's management is never elected - they are all fraud. ANYWAY, try to think outside the TV box and ask YOURSELF from deep within - which is the best way to combat poverty, REALLY.... I will discuss my opinion later on.

    The only tool to fix poverty is work. People can't get out of poverty without doing something productive with their lives. The real question is how to motivate people to do something productive when they can get welfare for doing nothing.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    What's up with the **** poll?

    Anyway, the best method isn't a matter of just one approach.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968
