I say we should avoid jails and start sending our little criminals to the truly impoverished war torn nations in Africa. Let's let them live under some of the mass murdering rebels in the Congo or Uganda and I am sure if they survive we can bring them back they will have much more of an appreciation of their own country."

Remember?
That is so true. I am white and work with many blacks that is so frustrated cause they bust their a$$ and gets the bum wrap.

We got poorer because of the recession. A recession caused by people who brought homes they could not afford, banks who gave out those bad loans then persuaded investors to buy the bad loans, ratings agencies who gave those loans good ratings, the repeal of glass steagal, and ponzi schemers. O's stimulus worked, but ever since the reps gained control the house, we have been going down again.
