    Poverty has always existed... and will continue .... in perpetuity. The fanciful idealism of it's elimination is irrational foolishness.

    Yes. Liberals and the war on poverty created this mess. Incentives to dissolve the family (which means poverty), and make the state a womans "husband".

    This is how destructive the left is.

    Sure, again, marriage creates jobs.

    It's magic.

    Actually, more accurately marriage prevents poverty. In fact single parenting is the single biggest predictor of poverty-and its closely associated with other issues, like drugs and violence.

    Yes, welfare causes job loss, just as soup lines cause depressions.

    It is the illogical ideas at play. If these single mothers would just get married, then their husbands will be presented with employment........because (magic).......the jobs will happen because they are married!

    Let's ignore the fact that a huge portion of those men left because they were unemployed......but of course, the reason they are unemployed is because of their own personal, inherent failings....wink wink.
