Did you forget about Nancy Pelosi's vacation homes and private jet who saw her net worth rise 62% last year making her one of the wealthiest members of Congress?
Then there's Diane Feinstein. And Hillary Clinton. And the late Ted Kennedy. The list goes on and on.
Democrats like lily are nothing more than brain dead hypocrites, spreading propoganda. These morons simply ignore the fact Al Gore has a mansion with the carbon footprint of 20 homes.

Idiots like her and leosnana with her Rmoney slang are what one calls a charlatan, which is also a good description for Al Gore by the way.

JACKSON, Miss.(AP)— The family of a slain Mississippi mayoral candidate says he was beaten and burned.

Marco McMillian's godfather, Carter Womack, said Monday that the information came from the Coahoma County coroner. The coroner declined to comment.

Womack said the family was told McMillian's body was dragged under a fence and left near a Mississippi River levee last week.

A person with direct knowledge of the investigation confirmed to The Associated Press that McMillian had bruises and there were burns on at least part of his body. The person wasn't authorized to publicly comment and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The 34-year-old McMillian was a candidate for mayor of Clarksdale. Twenty-two-year-old Lawrence Reed has been charged with murder.

It's amazing isn't it? One would think that we have a few billionaires on here; like Carol who continually carries water for the rich while making an hourly wage of $15.00; the hillbilly from KY who claims she works and once said makes $400 a week (doubtful)
etc.
It's not only against the poor, it is against all the middle class working people. They've been convinced to vote against their own best interests.
Lily, one of the most important things I've learned in life is the secret to happiness is to be content with what you have and not envy what others might have.

The other thing is if you don't like your circumstances, do something to change them.

Rodman should have been forced to watch the movie that I watched last night, "Camp 14, Total Control Zone", before schmoozing with the likes of Kim-Sung-un.
Shin Dong escaped from one of the 7 labor camps in North Korea after being born there and escaping at the age of 23.
His story and recalling what he saw and experienced himself is hard to get your head around.
In fact, anyone who has any confusion whatsoever about communism should watch this movie/documentary. I promise there will be no further confusion.

IF OBAMA REALLY CARED ABOUT BLACK MEN Prison and the Poverty Trap
The shift to tougher penal policies three decades ago was originally credited with helping people in poor neighborhoods by reducing crime. But now that America’s incarceration rate has risen to be the world’s highest, many social scientists find the social benefits to be far outweighed by the costs to those communities.

“Prison has become the new poverty trap,” said Bruce Western, a Harvard sociologist.“It has become a routine event for poor African-American men and their families, creating an enduring disadvantage at the very bottom of American society.”

Among African-Americans who have grown up during the era of mass incarceration, one in four has had a parent locked up at some point during childhood. For black men in their 20s and early 30s without a high school diploma, the incarceration rate is so high — nearly 40 percent nationwide — that they’re more likely to be behind bars than to have a job.

No one denies that some people belong in prison. Mr. Harris, now 47, and his wife, 45, agree that in his early 20s he deserved to be there. But they don’t see what good was accomplished by keeping him there for two decades, and neither do most of the researchers who have been analyzing the prison boom.

The number of Americans in state and federal prisons has quintupled since 1980, and a major reason is that prisoners serve longer terms than before. They remain inmates into middle age and old age, well beyond the peak age for crime, which is in the late teenage years — just when Mr. Harris first got into trouble.

In 2006, The Washington Post revealed Chris Wallace has been a registered Democrat for more than two decades. Wallace insisted that being a Democrat is the only feasible means of participating in the political process in heavily Democratic Washington, D.C. He maintains he has voted for candidates from both major parties in the past.
