When I return home to visit one can tell that the wages in Miss among black are low, and in some area very low. It's almost like people there are blind to the fact of that. Someone needs to raise the lid on poverty in Miss!! Why!! There no need for it in 2008, when the state has the resources. Spread the wealth!!

I guess I could spread it around by giving you some of my wealth, but then I just have this thing about working my a$$ off and just *giving* it away to anyone who won't work or won't sacrifice to get the education and skills required to work.
