Thank you. This goes a long way to explain the damage done by decades of
transferring wealth from the working poor to those with asset bubbles. Seeing
the statistical breakdown of poverty by race, it's clear we still need
affirmative action.As Utah implements our new law gathering
statistics about multi-generational poverty let's not end up blaming the
I think one reason that we're seeing the drift toward allowing conditions
that create extreme poverty make a resurgence in the U.S. is that we don't
see the threat of a foe that's using our poverty as a media tool against
us, as was the case in the Cold War. So those in power are less reminded of the
existance of those in need.
Ask someone who overcame poverty and you may be suprised to learn that poverty
is overcome from the inside out,not the other way around.
Mountboy, it's pretty hard to find anything more "inside" a person
than education. So I guess you are offering wholehearted support for this.
Re: one old man Ogden, UT"Mountboy, it's pretty hard to find

don't want to help themselves. That is what the LDS Inner-city Mission is
all about. They teach people how to make the changes in their lives necessary
to improve their situation.There are too many people who expect and
free handout without putting forth the effort to earn it.
It is really nice for the Herberts to get out with their campaigning message and
get free advertising 2 weeks before the election. Mr. Cooke will have a
disadvantage as he is not in control of agencies that can use the
"Governor" and "First Lady" positions to get free advertising
for UDOT, education, humanitarian events, etc, such as giving at contracts to
his friends and pay $13M to the contractor who didn't get the contract to
buy some time. You can buy happiness? Utah County Commissioners past and
present don't have opposition and have such an influence on the state. I
know it is a happy valley and there are even heretics down there that are
against the system because he is not a part of the inpower party.People get skewed in Utah valley as it is such a happy place without problems
and the mass transit Front Runner and ICORE will take care of all those
frustrations people have behind their wheels of power.There will be
more time for people to go to football, basketball and other sports with less
time being on the road. They will then be able to spend more Integrity money.
An Ancient Chinese proverb clearly states both cause and cure for many of the
Lower Class problems. "Give a man a fish he will est for one day, but teach
him to fish and he will eat for the rest of his life." Many of the Lower
Class have problems that keep them in the Lower Class, but if these problems
were corrected they could become self-reliant, simply because that is where
their family has been for generations.
We loss the war on poverty, and the Head Start program is another government
I'd rather be an employer who hires, then be the one searching for work.America gives us the independence, and playing field to decide our
fate.We need leaders with the same philosophy, or we'll
transform into a North Korea.
