Poor people stay poor because they make bad decisions. Poor people make bad decisions cause their poor and are less likely to get education to make good decisions. Education is the key really. As I said before, there isn't a reason in the world for anyone that's not one welfare not to have $1,000,0...

When it comes to poverty in Africa, I'd say being poor is a relative term. You're environment will greatly effect how well you do. At the same time, you can pin a lot of their problems on decisions of the many governments. As for free education... no such thing. The government may pay for it, at the...

EDIT: @akula: there's only room for so many bosses, so only so many people are going to make boss salaries, so only so many people are going to have boss wealth. Barriers to good investment don't tend to scale with the amount of money you have. When you look at how people end up in society, educati...

Wow, if every professor were like that, I wouldn't skip class so much.

Makes it engaging and informative.

The big thing is that socialists are of the mistaken belief that wealth is static and can only be redistributed. The truth is that wealth can be created out of thin air. That last statement is false, there are two kinds of wealth, that I like to call "favours", and "stuff". It's...

politicians say that anyone can live like the rich, and it's the faults of the poor that they are in the state they're in. Ant that is totally false because... Certainly there are some people who go through a series of tough breaks, and I don't have any problem setting aside money in the government...

Figure I'll chime in, as I am new on the boards.

22/m/NH. In college studying Aviation, probably going to get out of here soon and join the Army to fly helicopters.

The big thing is that socialists are of the mistaken belief that wealth is static and can only be redistributed. The truth is that wealth can be created out of thin air. The other point is that most of the rich people in the world earned that money. More than 3/4 of the people on the Forbes 500 list...

One more thing I always thought the thing was that the rich save their money while the poor spend it. Assuming they don't go and blow it on a Cigarette Boat, where do you think they save it? Stocks and bonds. To quote something that was funny, but I don't remember what it was... "Banks are wher...

Even after the tax breaks, richer people still pay far higher tax rates.
If you're below the poverty line, you don't even pay taxes. I don't get what the bitching is about.

I'm fairly certain Bush has been diagnosed with Dyslexia. And as for something good - tax cuts. Despite how much the Democrats love to flip their shit about "tax cuts for the rich," federal revenue went up after they were implemented. Gosh it's almost like what said would happen happened -...

Bush is not dumb, but he is a very poor public speaker. Idiots don't get to fly supersonic jet fighters, no matter how well connected they are. They certainly don't graduate from Yale or get an MBA from Harvard.

My take, from the meteorology background I've received studying aviation is that we should be prudent in our actions. Global Warming is happening, but the number of things that affect the climate that could be causing it is vast. The science supporting claims that humans are definitely the primary c...
