If anything, this is an argument against redistribution of wealth in the name of equality. In the real world we are all NOT equal, not by a long shot. However, here in America I contend our Constitution gives us all equal opportunity. I guarantee you a whole lot more people would be out of work and much more poor if we didn't have those that can and are willing to do great things and build big companies. If you want to sit behind your excuses like "I don`t have any money` or "I`m the wrong skin color" or whatever, then you`ll simply remain at the station you are. Those that get it move past that. My folks made too much for me to get any grants so I worked two jobs and went to school at the same time. If you want to move ahead stop voting for the lefties that constantly bar you from where you want to go. Take a good look before you flame me, it`s not conservatives that are holding you back. Not at all.

turdburglar-Intelligence isn't genetic. (remember that there are poor WHITE people too.) FYI, `genetics` does not automatically equate with `race`.
Gypsybard-[quote]the "food" they can afford, (fast food, junk food, etc.) [/quote] Fast food and junk food are not cheaper than nutritious food....just easier. I`ve seen way too many `poor` people using their EBT cards (you know, `free` food) for crap with little to know nutritional value. I`ve also seen them buying package after package of ground beef because `EBT don`t pay for dog food`.
@Tatung 42. It`s the old `nature vs. nurture` argument. It`s actually a combination of both.
