I think the Grapes of Wrath did a great job depicting it.
Yes, but the truth is that Steinbeck had far more graphic stories about death and suffering in his book.

The movie folks knew they had to water it down.

The movie was very good, but the book was even better.

A Black Agenda The awfulness of what's happening in Atlanta's Edgewood Courts is that it's not unique or original at all. Anywhere black politicians are in power nowadays, their chief function seems to be that of what sociologist Jay Arena in his book Driven From New Orleans calls “the new urban regime...” Black politicians are able to serve white elites, and themselves better and more effectively than white politicians ever could alone. Black politicians, under the new urban regime are successful when they divert attention away from their actual policies and onto issues of status and symbolism.
When Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed runs for re-election later this year the call will be to protect the voice of black Atlanta from its first white mayor in forty years. It won't be about the mayor's gutting of employee pension funds, or his agenda of school and transit privatization. It won't be about Atlanta's racial poverty gap, at about 4 blacks to every one 1 white, the highest in the nation's forty largest cities..
Black Mecca is over. Welcome to the new urban regime.
All Democrats screw the white middle class to protect minorities and their white elite benefactors.

Cities like Atlanta that persist in being visibly black are sealing their own doom.

It's becoming more about party loyalty and preserving the party and, thus, power than the best interests of the country and seems to have gotten much worse under this president.
It's almost like they have a grudge against this country and have to prove something even if it means going in the wrong direction. There's no other way to explain it.
I do believe far too many liberals are simply brainwashed and can no longer compute or grasp common sense anymore. They're much too willing to cut off their noses to spite their faces. Probably where that saying came from.
Funny to see a diabetic, overweight smoker speak of others not having common sense!!

Do you ever reflect on your own disasterous lifestyle??

Where;s your common sense?? You must know the dangers of smoking are far greater for diabetics.

Want me to post the facts on what you're doing to yourself??

Ready for the amputations??

Funnier than hell to see you talk of common sense, while you have none.

Fifteen more dead in Iraq including four policemen in the Sunni country North of Baghdad.
Maybe they can't handle all the liberty.
Strong analogy between Islamic lunatics in Iraq and Chicago urban youth.

Nobody gives a damn if either group liquidates their own tribe.

Meanwhile, you ignore Americans murdered in Afghanistan by Obama's policies.

Aw, lily was nasty all day and Nuk pretended not to notice. Typical.
You repeatedly accuse others of being someone they are not and want to act like victim when the tables are turned? You need to wise up. I am glad I am not a thin skin whiner like you and waste all my time here venting my frustrations.
Yet you say noting when Nobraina calls Lily disgusting names repeatedly.

You're a phony, Jason, a whining little poof.

Even Flake called Nobraina out on his disgusting talk.

Kudos to Flake!!

You and Eman ignore it, being the misogynists you are.

Then you stupidly spend hours calling Lily natsy. Whatever that means.

Especially funny to see all those self sufficient farmers end up begging for Government help.
Flake needs to watch it. It shows how awful things can get. Also shows how FDR saved America.
Small wonder he was elected 4 times in a row. Never before had it happened. If he hadn't died, he would have won in 1948.
The government does have a purpose during a national crisis providing assistance but creating a government dependent society has only added to the problems.

"If there's anything more unpredictable than the direction of the market, it's the effects of government tinkering with economic policy. And even today, economists and historians still vigorously debate not only whether or not the New Deal helped take the country out of the Depression but if it actually made things worse."

If you're really interested, the pros and cons studied and discussed by economists is in this article. Not everyone agrees the New Deal proved to be the best long-term solution considering how we're being haunted by it today. Still, others agree with you and others who stand by big government as the only solution.
