Hope and change.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

That is the end result under the liberal / socialist path we are heading down.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

I rarely see poverty here. Our poor have cell phones and cable. Step outside the U.S if you want a taste of real poverty.

The majority of the "poor" in my area have at least one late model vehicle, a roof over their head, cable or satellite T.V., at least one console game system, and enough spare cash for cigarettes and booze (or weed and pills).
That isn't to say that we don't have some truly impoverished people here, but the definition of poor in this country is pretty wide.
