What you call excuses are proven facts. Simply put yourself in the same scenarios of the African American. For over a century subjugated to second or third class citizenship.

Families break down and to maintain their social perspectives they digress into gangs. Back to archaic tribal affiliations, with Tit for Tat scenarios. Try it sometime.

Trillion dollar war on poverty? State timelines.
Presently Obama is seeking to attack inequality in our economics distributions, of which we rate the lowest in the civilized developing nations. GINI coefficient {0= equality: 1 = Inequality} is at .47. Africa and Latino South America are .5 ot higher. 1980 we were at .4 thus inequality has been severely increasing. Sweden is .3 or below and Netherlands is .31. Presently we are at the levels of nations such as Turkey and Iran.
Addressing the issues of inequality will suppress the dysfunctions that produce family disintegration and gangs as well as poverty.
That is why I have been hitting on inequality. Giving small examples from sources such as “The Price Of Inequality” by Joseph E. Stiglitz, Nobel prize winner in economics. Want some more; . One is Michael Mandelbaum. Economic advisors to various presidents here in the USA and a few other outlying sovereignties. Has several books on the subject of Liberal International Free Trade Markets. One to get you started ,“The Ideas That Conquered The World”.
Another Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box by Bob Deitrick and Lew Goldfarb. Statistics on the past 80 years of each and every president.
Now put down your foxy tabloids and comic books and read something that actually has substance and facts.
Of course that would be against ideologies of the right wing. They prefer an ignorant herd. Much easier to manipulate them to cut their own throats and save them the problem of doing their own butchering. LOL Now how is that for my opinion.
Gosh.What an incredible arrogant punk you are.You don't seem to care at all for the blacks being butchered by blacks.Are you that stupid? Or just uncaring? Its easy to tell that waco's agenda is to get help for black neighborhoods.What point are you trying to make? Simply being a jerk is no help to anyone.B.F., protector of the status quo?

My sis says to ask you who got the vote first? Blacks or Females? Want to talk about "second class"? She said she would be happy to stroll down that lane. Trust me, she has no problem going there. ALL in the "Hangie Down" club HAS it better, she says.

Now wait a minute waco, I'll agree with you about Barney, but The Bunny and Santa are really good guys, to even use them in the same sentence with Barney is just wrong.

Old Bernie sees everything in black and white.It is necessary for him to demonize those with the temerity to disagree with his so called"views", it makes the sot feel better about himself.That, and a fifth of JD.

From your comment one can see you are not in compliance with the Marine Code of ethics.“Leave No One Behind”. Another institution you seek to slander. Never made it to Nam did ya.
Law abiding citizens? DUH who made those laws? Same ones you oppose to regulating too big to fail banks. Oh yeah we know you well. Anti everything, Anarchist. Spewing words you have no knowledge of. Deregulate is the hue and cry of your clan. Criminals and corruptive officials love you.
What a meat head !
The Marine Code of Ethics doesn't apply to failed libtard policies. I highly doubt if you were ever a U.S. Marine and if you were and in fact went to Nam, you couldn't have been anything more than a REMF anyway.

The War On Poverty is nothing more than another liberal failure. Get over it.

LOL have got the worms coming out of the wood work. All those comments and if you sum them all up it adds up to Nothing. Typical evade, distract, derogatory callow nonsense. Why even their illiterate nature can not handle one fact I GAVE them. Ah but then they are simply lost sheep of the right wing herd. All have played hooky or dropped out before they could get to a class on reading and comprehension. Good to know this is all that is left of once was the Grand Old Party. Dregs…
While they babble on I’ll put out some more facts. They are the wind beneath my wings.
Yes I see a pattern; Is it conspiracy?
Capture of Osama without archaic torture tactics.{Mathematical algorithms} No invasion of Pakistan with hundreds of $Billions for the military industrialist.
Libya’s war, without one American solider dying in its entire operation and objective. Completed within months.
Obtains a water downed Health Care system for our nation in spite of the most dysfunctional congress in our nations history.
Returned economic stability in record time, from the brink of the abysses of a Great Depression. Faster than Clinton, Reagan and F.D.R.
Seeking to expand our ruined higher education of which we are no longer the “best in the world”.
I have a dream that some day our nation will discover the benefits of Universal Education. Some Western Industrious Nations have, for years, proven its necessity and its benefits that return to their industrious nation to progress.

For a complete list of campaign promises look here little inbred imbecile.
promises kept 45%
compromised on 25%
broken 22%
Now lets look at the republican congressional promises
promises kept 38%
compromised 30%
broken 32%
looks like the President, also known as the COMMANDER AND CHIEF kept more promises and broke less that your pathetic excuse for a congress.
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promi...
Twist and spin all you want AcTardly. The list of broken promises that I provided are all important ones to the people in this country. Face it, we have the most worthless administration and Congress in the whole history of the U.S..

LOL you still here. Nothing else in your life? USMC yes, was NCOIC in Nam. Chu Lai.. And you a barrack warrior no doubt.
War on poverty is far from over. Obama with his intelligence is attacking the inequality factors of our economics. That would be the most efficient means to suppress poverty and the blight that comes with it.
Republicans oppose the interference that this produces to their 1%. Which you and your comrades seek to keep the wealth going to them at all cost.. As stated before you are cutting your own throats to satisfy your masters. Saves them the effort of having to do it for you.
