Re: I agree with JoelCairo

If you think it's justified you'd be wrong.

Really? You think passing legislation that ended Jim Crow segregation should not be a big deal to black Americans?

Curious POV.

Re: I agree with JoelCairo

It is very funny that leftist point to a big ole racist like LBJ as the beacon for being a black mans friend.

Did LBJ have racist tendencies? Probably. Hard to grow up in the 1950s and not be racist, let alone growing up in rural [more]

Re: I agree with JoelCairo

Because the efforts specific to the black community and the calls that the culture should not change, and set asides and rhetoric that it is all whitey's fault are aimed specifically at blacks

Re: I agree with JoelCairo

Maybe because you and your ilk call every American black person who succeeds on their own an 'Uncle Tom' or 'Aunt Jemima' at the first opportunity, to make sure that the others don't get the idea that it's okay to be self-reliant?

Re: I agree with JoelCairo

And it's pretty racist to believe that blacks need to be kept dependent and on the Democrat plantation.

Why are you focused so much on blacks? Just as many whites on welfare. Curious.

How about the fact that after fifty years of the Great Society, we have 73% of black children born out of wedlock?

That's why Venezuela and Cuba are doing so well. You're good.

Why bring up only Cuba and Venezuela? How about Norway or Switzerland, you know, regulated free market systems?

Re: I agree with JoelCairo

Once we get society to the point where, except for politicians, we all live in what used to be called poverty, because we ensure equal results, we will all be by definition middle class.

So the roaring 20's were bad and the Great Depression was good. Fascinating.

Re: I agree with JoelCairo

Your 'argument' (such as it is) is that people in poverty today are better off than in 1960.

Which is one measure of a successful poverty program. I think it is good that we no longer have people starving or old people freezing. You [more]

In other words, the difference between La Nina and El Nino conditions is not proof that CO2 is warming the planet.

Indeed - but if you're going to adjust driving for population increases, you ought to do the same for transit.

Right. But that gets pretty complicated pretty quickly. The big demographic changes are the aging of the population, [more]

So we're well past Peak Driving now, and I think that claims that Americans have changed their lifestyles or driving patterns in any lasting way are now a little weaker.
