re: How to Live on Minimum Wage and Escape "Poverty" - elleshoo9
You can thank "community leaders and activists" for not emphasizing the need for self sustenance. Instead, they have mind-fricked their followers into thinking that they can only escape low income with government assistance. Once again, this has happened to multiple races in multiple countries throug...

Some more things to consider: Low income neighborhoods with affordable housing for someone making min wage would not be nearly as unappealing if the residents had a sense of civic pride and responsibility. This is regardless of race. Compare Harlem in the 1940s and 1950s with Harlem 1970s to pres...

This scenario is not intended for someone who is born with a disability or ailment. I could support an efficient program along the lines of Medicaid for these people. Note that I was able to find a cheap healthcare plan via obamacare that I included in this budget. Lack of education is a choice ...

I feel like I am starting to understand you thought process. You seem to acknowledge that there is a problem with the welfare state, loss of family values, etc. We are now so far down this road and blaming people won't solve anything. But you want more programs to help support these people, even...

People act like being wealthy is the norm when in fact it is rare to reach the wealth we all dream of. Furthermore, we think that people living on minimum wage are living in poverty, but is this really poverty? ...

[quote]Personally, I'd like a little back up data on that proposition. [/quote] To pick a single race, why don't you look at blacks in America about 90-100 years after slavery (1950s-60s), then compare that to blacks in America 30 years after the welfare state greatly expanded the 1960s to prese...

re: How to Live on Minimum Wage and Escape "Poverty" - elleshoo9
Everyone can agree that one of the main reasons certain areas of town are more expensive than others is because people will pay more to avoid the higher crime areas. So where did this crime come from? It came from the growth of the welfare state, which allowed people to work less (too much free t...

Y'all are missing one of the points I'm trying to make. If these community activists and progressive leaders would stop playing the "woe is us" card to their people, and instead challenged them to live a more moral (less criminal) life, these low income communities would not suck at all. Look at Har...

I was trying to leave race out of this because this applies to low income people of all races. What did my being born white do to prevent someone from advancing their own life? If this is your life, you most likely will not rise to great wealth, and if you do, it won't happen immediately (san...

How to Live on Minimum Wage and Escape "Poverty" - elleshoo9
In most cases, the only thing holding a person back is the choices he or she makes in life. The most significant detriment to the advancement of low income people is the propaganda spewed by "community activists" and politicians about wealth inequality, putting blame on higher income individuals. ...
