re: Would theoretical free market capitalism create a permanent underclass? - volod
[quote] Is that a theoretical end game of this type of society? And do we see that to a lesser extent in our current society? [/quote] 1. The only issue I see is your society would be the perfect breeding ground for a socialist takeover. I am not a Marxist, but this society is ideally what hi...

re: Alabama has the worst poverty in the developed world! - volod
[quote]Using that logic, as the state is run by conservatives who all want/do cut government services/benefits, they SHOULD be less impoverished than that national average, no?  Your argument would seem to suggest that the less government is involved (as is the case in Alabama compared to other s...

re: Apparently, Rep Sewell thinks electing Roy will take us back to days of segregation - volod
[quote]You don't see whites in black churches or universities. [/quote] I think many blacks would agree with you and me in that they don't care if some whites choose not to be platonic with us. What we care about racial discrimination in regards to jobs, schooling, and criminal convictio...

[quote]Admit it. She is just trying to agitate and scare people she believes are gullible.  [/quote] Not me. I can see race baiting for what its is. To be fair, I think Moore is just pandering to his base. My prayer is that once he gets in, he'll cool down some. DC has a tendency to ...

[quote]He can get in line right behind the NAACP. They are leading the way in that department. [/quote] I honestly believe the NAACP want what they fought for. For blacks to be treated equally in the US. Equal is a two way street encompasses the GOODS AND BADS. This is why I think 3r...

re: To the Anti-trumps on this board - volod
[quote]Many Liberals in the media think TOO HIGHLY of Conservatives in that they fail to see that many Conservatives don't care if Trump colluded with the Russians, don't care if Trump is racist, don't care if Trump is a religious bigot, don't care if Trump isn't much of a Christian himself, don't c...

re: Black leaders not attending opening of civil rights meeting because of trump....shameful - volod
Black person chiming in. This is really a 2 sided issue. 1. Why build a Civil Rights Museum and not support it? I'm sure that most of these leaders respect the contributions of the previous leaders. BLM is a symptom to a disease. While some of you may not see it, there are cases of dis...

re: Do you think Moore's moral stance is reflective of the US - volod
[quote]Stop trying to impose YOUR morality on other people[/quote] I'm not. I'm just presenting an alternate point of view. The problem with modern politics is that it has become us vs them with no regard for how policies will actually work out. The reality is that what benefits the rich or...

Do you think Moore's moral stance is reflective of the US - volod
Honest question. I understand he is running for senator of Alabama and has a responsibility to that state in particular. I strongly disagree with his moral stance on things. I get that he is a Christian, so am I. But I would never condone telling someone who they can't marry. I think...
