You can't help people who don't want to be helped. Millions have been thrown at the War on Poverty since the Johnson era. How's that been workin' out?
Excellent

President Johnson was a favorite
for driving the republicans out of office.

President Obama may do the same.

If only the Democrats didn't use the Middle Class as pawns in their game of power and control and raise their taxes anyway.
Answer this question seriously. You don't think Democrats have third vacation homes and try to avoid paying taxes on their stuff?
Ask Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats who fly fancy jets all over the place on our dime if they care about the Middle Class.
Still stuck on the old Romney posts?

Explain in detail.
Disproportionate number of illegals.
Decades of fiscal irresponsibility by a Democratic controlled legislature.
State workers no longer working 40 hour weeks.
Borrowing $1.7 million per hour.
Credit rating plummeting to bottom of 50 states.
Lenders rethinking lending any more money to the Golden State.
Businesses moving to other states.

Investor’s Business Daily:“California has been a virtual one-party state since the 1960s. Thanks to decades of anti-business policies promulgated by a series of left-leaning legislatures, its economy and finances are a mess and it's hemorrhaging jobs, businesses and productive entrepreneurs to other states.”

I live in California, Carol.
Contrary to your barkings, Governor Brown is very popular. The only obstacle in his path is his age, 74. But should he run in 2014, even Republicans will tell you he'll skate through the election effortlessly.
Jerry Brown convinced Californians to raise taxes on themselves, approving Proposition 30, supposedly to help the school kids. Brown is earmarking part of it for union pay hikes as payback for labor support in getting Prop. 30 passed.

California officials have been ramping up pay and benefit packages for public employees creating a level of enrichment that is almost hard to believe.

California public employees receive far more in pay and retirement compensation than those in other states. Public employees are walking away from the job at age 50 with initial six-figure payouts and pensions that could pay them millions over their lifetimes.

That's the problem in California. A "popular" Jerry Brown spooning with the unions.

Johnson isn't remembered for much of anything but the Vietnam War and signing the CRA of 1964 after Republicans got it passed in Congress.

It's not about winning. Until you and your democrat friends figure that out, your side will always be part of the problem and not the solution.

Evidently you think the same people who were poor then are poor now. You think the poor live in the exact same conditions then as now.
Actually, what I really think is people who can't help themselves out of their own circumstances - be it drug addiction, lack of education or a victim in the vicious cycle of poverty, no amount of money can make them do what only they themselves can do to change their own circumstances.

Helping the poor is one thing. Providing a safety net is one thing.

But simply creating dependency on the backs of others is not helping anyone.

The economic face of California:

Disproportionate number of illegals. Decades of fiscal irresponsibility by a Democratic controlled legislature. State workers no longer working 40 hour weeks. Borrowing $1.7 million per hour. Credit rating plummeting to bottom of 50 states. Lenders rethinking lending any more money to the Golden State. Businesses moving to other states.

Sad but true. Is this the way we want the nation to go too? California is Democrat leadership at its finest. Or sleaziest. Whichever.

Jerry Brown is in the midst of a political meltdown and doesn't know if he's coming or going. California is the model of what the nation should avoid at all costs.
Miss Carol, Givinor Moonbeam has always been in meltdown. The 'fruits and nuts'& flakes, elected one of their own and were willing to let 'other peoples money' pay for it.
