Who are the 'chronically poor' in the UNITED STATES in 1991-92?
CHRONIC POVERTY....included:
'Persons who, during the entire two year period, were members of FAMILIES maintained by a woman without a husband.'
People in this situation were 20 TIMES MORE likely to be poor than persons living in a 'married-couple' family....
United States Census Bureau.(1995).'Statistical Brief'.
United States Dept of Commerce. SB/95-20. Page 10.
Bingo!

85% of black households are minus a father......but poverty is someone else's fault?

Government cannot fix its own deficits but surely will never fix cultural deficits.
Ethnic cultural deficits need to be fixed within that ethnicity's community.

Blacks need to stop listening to the siren song of poverty pimps and listen instead to their hearts and conscience.

Gasoline greener than biofuels?
Mike Emanuel
By Mike EmanuelPublished April 22, 2014FoxNews.com Facebook1421 Twitter661 Gplus66
Biofuels produced from waste products left from harvested corn plants are worse than gasoline in terms of carbon emissions, according to a $500,000 study paid for by the federal government and published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
The study said biofuels made with corn residue release seven percent more greenhouse gases than traditional gasoline.
Rayola Dougher from the American Petroleum Institute called that an eye opener for the green energy crowd. "You know, what are we doing? If that's so, then we're going down the wrong path here,” Dougher told Fox News in an interview.“We have to give ourselves at least press the pause button and look at what we're trying to accomplish and look at the science, and look at it very carefully."
The study contradicts the Obama administration's narrative that biofuels are a much cleaner alternative, while also receiving more than a billion dollars in federal support.
Phil Flynn, an oil trader and senior market analyst with The Price Futures Group, said the promises made were too good to be true. "Celluosic biofuels was going to be our future. It wouldn't impact our food. We could use the leftovers, and it would help greenhouse gas emissions and it would be the answer to all our problems. But what we're finding out is that's not the case," said Flynn.
The Obama administration and those in alternative energy ripped the research, claiming it was flawed.
"This paper is based on a hypothetical assumption that 100 percent of corn stover in a field is harvested; an extremely unlikely scenario that is inconsistent with recommended agricultural practices,” an EPA spokesperson told Fox.
Jon Doggett from the National Corn Growers Association said he can point to other relevant research with opposing findings. "Well, we have one study that says one thing and we have about four or five other studies: we have the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Agriculture, we have the Argonne labs, we have the University of Illinois all saying something else."
But those in more traditional energy say this should be a wakeup call to policymakers to figure out if alternatives are really working. "And make policy based on science, real true facts," Dougher said.
Mike Emanuel currently serves as chief congressional correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC). He joined FNC in 1997 as a Los Angeles-based correspondent.
If Flactard actually read about the study instead of just listening to Fox, he wouldn't be such a dumbass & actually have learned:

1) This is only short term & in the long term it products less

2) The study only dealt with biofuels from corn waste ( the stubble typically left in the field)

3) The "emissions" in question are due to the corn stock "stubble" being used instead of being left to be tilled into the soil. If they take all the stubble, it reduces the carbon content of the oil.

4) The study was based on taking all the stubble where farmers typically do not do that due to erosion control and soil maintenance.

basic economics.....
As frivolous malpractice lawsuits increase, the cost of physicians' and hospitals' malpractice insurance will continue to be passed on to patients. Same goes for unnecessary and very costly tests and procedures - so physicians' and hospitals' can cover their butts in the event of a frivolous malpractice lawsuit.

Not to mention insurance companies nationwide having no reason to compete to keep premiums and coverage costs lower.

These very practical solutions should have been taken first. Then see if costs were significantly reduced.

Doing none of those things was ignoring the obvious.

If Republican Government stops putting Black fathers in prison for minor , non-violent drug offenses then more Black households would still be whole and healthy family units. President Barack Obama is fixing the problem by getting ready to pardon hundreds of thousands of non-violent drug offenders that were sentenced to unjustified , excessively long prison terms for minor offenses.

We are still trying to recover from the travesty of the eight years of the Bush W Administration.

"President Barack Obama had spoken out about the need to reform the criminal-justice system, and clearly felt passionately about entrenched racial biases that resulted in people being treated unfairly by the courts based solely on the color of their skin. But in his crowded first term, his only foray into criminal justice was encouraging lawmakers to pass the Fair Sentencing Act, which he signed in 2010, to reduce the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine. The disparity had the effect of punishing black drug offenders far more harshly than white ones, and was widely accepted to be outdated and unfair.(Obama's clemency push is meant to correct a broad set of inequities in the criminal-justice system, not just those that are racial. Scrivner, who might benefit from the program, is white.)

When it came to using his only unfettered presidential power — to pardon felons and to reduce the sentences of prisoners — Obama was incredibly stingy in his first term. Vanita Gupta, deputy legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, calls his record on mercy "abysmal." He pardoned just 22 people — fewer than any modern president — and commuted the sentence of just one. An applicant for commutation like Scrivner had just a 1-in-5,000 chance of getting a reduced sentence with Obama in his first term — compared with a 1-in-100 chance under Presidents Reagan and Clinton, according to an analysis by ProPublica.

According to former and current administration officials, the fault for this lay mostly at the feet of the Office of the Pardon Attorney, a small corner of the Justice Department that sifts through thousands of pardon and commutation petitions each year. The pardon attorney, former military judge Ronald Rodgers, sends his recommendations of whether or not to grant the petitions to the Deputy Attorney General’s office, which then sends them on to the White House. The pardon attorney was recommending that the president deny nearly every single petition for a pardon or a reduced sentence, according to one senior official in the Obama administration."

LOL. Obviously you have never been to Bullhead City. It is miles from the Nevada/California border and so is the Needles Highway and the Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area where the Chinese plant was proposed. You are clueless.

Now, if you people want to make an issue about solar and Bundy's ranch, you should probably be focusing on the Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project, which really is about 35 miles from the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada. First Solor,Inc. and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power broke ground for that plant on March 21, 2014. Of course, the Indians are free to do whatever they want with their land. Reid must be laughing at you and yours.

Absolutely no surprise. But just like millions of Americans, we preferred to have it added to our balance and pay it off a little at a time.

A lot of Americans like us, are having to use their savings (or having to borrow money) unexpectedly to get necessary treatment. No one likes those kinds of surprises.

But most American presidents didn't seek out Marxist professors in college or discuss writers like Frantz Omar Fanon whose writings were influenced by Marxism.
None of them did, as a matter of fact.
Fanon's, The Wretched of the Earth, analyzes the role of class, race, national culture and violence in the struggle for national liberation.
Sounds all too familiar.
Radical influences and a radical ideology ingrained in you all of your life isn't a phase of youth you grow out of.
Your continued vocal support for destroying the republican party is noted and appreciated.

President Obama might not have been elected twice without your support.
