THe Hurricane focused many many poor in New Orleans, ..but how could that ever be as Liberal democrats RAN New Orleans for 60 years???

Why does our fellow black citizens have to live like 2nd class citizens, ..& always being in constant need?

Liberalism was supposed to be more fair, & present more opportunity for the most poor, & God knows that the Liberals are smarter than everybody else:2razz: when it comes to redistributing everybody elses wealth.

So, uhh.....WHY so many poor, & destitute of our black citizens in NEW ORLEANS. It sure as hell was not for lack of funding, & Senator Mary Landrieu sometimes even RECIEVED more than the state of California to put into the pockets of her fellow democrat politicians!

Blacks in this country have always been viewed as a threat to the powers that be, promoting dependency makes people that much easier to control. It's really not a right/left issue...nor is it Black&White, they do it to most everyone, always for our own good of course.

Becasue throughout their ancestry in america they have been dependant on the white man to give them everything due to them being slaves. When a race is enslaved they are used, however, a level of dependency sets in. When the blacks were freed most of them were so dependent on their masters that they didnt know how to begin a new life so it took them a very long time to actually leave their owners(also they didnt want to leave casue they also built up a relationship with their owners). And this dependency has been settled in black peoples minds ever since. Now of course this doesnt apply to all but it is a big reason why. When they learn that gov isnt supposed to bail them out all the time like that of the civil war thats when this society will prevail even more. They need to understand that they themselves will only make a prosperous life not gov.

Kick it. He's just making the point that New Orleans is a perfect example of how liberalism failed.

BTW What does the corrupt police force have to do with anything?

Sorry for jumping in as ignorant swed. But is not then good if they have good schools, free health care for the children, free universities for everybody? Because that shows that don't have be depenendent on you parents and also that if you have a more fair change to succeed you are more likely to take it.

Huh? Can you please write this again and more clearly so that I can understand it. I think you are saying there should be a even level of the ability to prosper? Am I right?

Well I'm a crazy socialist so I have alot of crazy ideas. But here I just wanted to say that people atleast can get a more even start. Because if you are against both social safety nets and at the same time don't want to have measures, that evens the starting field in the begining of a persons life. The result will be that people fail because they just had the wrong "parents". Because if you want a society there everyone takes care of them self you also need to realise the simple truth that the children are dependent of there parents

It's simple why there are so many poor people in New Orleans. In the inner city part of a major city, it is basically all poor people in any big city you find.

Many people are content with just living off welfare and enjoying the simple things in life instead of working.
That's why the wellfare system needs a good tuning. It should be a social safety net, not a means for people to live. My taxdollars should not go to someone who is too lazy to work.
