so where is her family? why don't they support her?

where are the fathers of these five children?
they fathered the kids they should support them

or where is the NAACP, black panthers, congressional N word caucus, PETA, rev al not so Sharpton, Jessie fillmypocketsfirst Jackson, Ophra they all have money and are black they should be reaching in to those deep pockets to take care of these black kids.

why is it my problem ? in fact is not my problem.

I take care of my family, I do volunteer work in the local soup kitchen when I can.

I take care of the Lithuanian, polish, and other ethnic groups in my neighborhood and we don't have a Lithuanian history month like blacks do, we don't have polish entertainment channel or Lithuanian history classes at Harvard or affirmative action programs at Harvard and yet we make it in the real world so what's wrong with blacks?

There r many things wrong fundamentally with lawrs and policies that were enacted decades ago.just like unions being strong years ago,in many ways they r no longer needed.many people have used these policies to the extreme . They were meant to give a helping hand in giving equality. Now groups and individuals have really used these policies selfishly for their own desires without truly relying on their own accomplishments and achievements.it has been handed down many times.what a travesty.

look there is an axiom in economics which states

what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of.

America needs and I would rather subsidize business and industry which improves economies creates jobs wealth and taxes.

Not subsidize poor people who produce nothing and are a drain on society use up taxes produce nothing.

create jobs and give one to a poor person so they can become self sufficient and not a drain on society

read the history of Maryland NY Detroit to see what not following this axiom does to a city or state.

if you don't see it I can explain it to you.

This thread makes me mad as hell.

Read the history of harlem from 1850 to 1970 written by the department of health and human services see what welfare did to black women in America.

Then read the recent history of the state of Maryland and NY to see what increasing taxes did to those two states economies and how the two states have had to lower taxes to attract & try to bring business and people back to those states.

Enough whining about poor people.

there are too many Americans and illegal immigrants living on tax payers money. poor people never produce anything they are a drain on our economy.

remember that axiom from economics

what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of..

We have to stop subsidizing poor and start subsidizing business to create more jobs.

we have to stop over taxing over regulating business and start taxing and regulating drug dealers gun toting black & wetback gangs in America. tax the hell out of welfare queens so they will want to go out and get one of the jobs that obozo claims he created to make a living

That is how we drove business out of the state out of the country by
over taxing over regulating allowing union bullies to run wild attacking business.

Follow the lead of china, Korea, mexico and other trading partners which protect their manufacturing and farm economies with strict limits , tariffs & taxes on American imports

when GM and other companies set up factories in mexico to avoid union labor cost we have to tax those items coming into America to the level that would make it better for them to produce the product here.

get the epa and other federal agencies out of business affairs they should be helping grow American business not hindering the growth.

Get unions out of the manufacturing picture altogether.
Unions have caused more harm toe American business than good.
