What's the Status of Jared Stidham - undecided
I know he graduates from JuCo in December. Where are we in his recruitment? Hopefully we're leading Sean's a great guy and I congratulate him on pulling this season out the toilet but injuries alone will prevent him from leading us to a championship. Next year is our easy schedule and I don't wa...

[quote]America is a nation that looks forward. Most of the world, even today lives in like a caste system. You basically stay in the same economic group your entire life and then your kids and grandkids. and so on. In America even 200 years ago the everyday man looked forward to one day bein...

Sounds like you get your rocks off by denigrating the poor. That being said, Wasn't one of the issues in Louisiana that Jindal and crew gave so many tax breaks to corporations and industries that the state actually ended up owing money? There was little or insufficient revenue generated thus cr...

The Union took a scorched earth approach to the south no doubt. In turn Southerners spent another 100 years making blacks pay for their indignities That doesn't necessarily explain the poor farmers throughout middle America and the heartland who just as vehemently defend the cause of the 1%...

So what happens to working poor? People who work at grocery stores, fast food, custodial service ect. They technically make too much to qualify for any government aid but who's quality of life is still poor. These people start off life behind the eight ball and rarely get ahead which limits the ...

[quote]Your OP would make sense if the Democrats actually supported the interests of the working class. Instead, they fight for the interests of the fat cats. So it's perfectly rational for working class voters to vote R.[/quote] Don't know if I really want to go down this rabbit hole but what exac...

[quote]Rather, we do it for the idea that we may someday become a self-sufficient people again--a people looking not with a hand out for help but rather one that takes pride in what we've earned and think this mindset is what could give us hope for the future.

My thought was that GOP and Dems bent over backwards for Wall Street then decided to make a point with GM et al which was a double shot to places like Detroit that got hit with loss of jobs and housing market collapse. Neither party actively works to benefit their base. My post was to question t...

[quote]They don't. They believe (however accurately or not) that the DNC is more interested in pursuing the votes of poor minorities, and not poor white votes. [/quote] To the point they vote against their own best interests? In Alabama for example, Rural school systems aren't much better than ...

Why do Poor Whites Vehemently Defend Causes of the Wealthy? - undecided
Going back to the Civil War, many that fought were too poor to own slaves yet they comprised the Rebel Army. They gave their life for a cause that bore them no fruit We see the same with modern GOP. Their base is poor, uneducated whites yet their policies benefit the wealthy. Trickle down economi...
