"The National Association for Advancement for Colored People & the National Association of Home Builders have joined together to address the issue of affordable housing for minorities."Here's his/her reaction [emphasis added]:
Didn't know "poor" meant "minority". Then again, I didn't know most people equate "capitalism" with "democracy". Far as I'm concerned, they can take that "free hand" and plant it where the daylight don't shine. 'Cause you know, all trickle down means is: don't eat the yellow snow.See, reality is easy. Your turn.
And on another related note: why is it that when conservatives throw, liberals chase. It seems to me we've been living in an age of "fetch" for at least six years, and the game shows no sign of ending. In the spirit of educate and inform, I present the following "Conservative-Liberal Translator":
Ending welfare as we know it. What this means is that while a single mother of two will have public benefits terminated, at the other end of the scale (true welfare), the CEO's of America's Fortune 500 corporations will continue to receive millions of dollars in welfare payments called "tax breaks".
Public-private partnerships for national healthcare. The first step in the plan was the Medicare Drug Benefit, or as it is affectionaly known around PHARMA headquarters, the "no more competition, we get it all" bill. There's a reason we need to start calling these guys "drug lords".
Raising the minimum hurts small business. Easy: show me. The example they use is the "mom & pop" neighborhood stores. Wrong example. "Mom & Pop" have a house in the burbs, enough cash to send their kids to college, and drive 50,000 dollar SUVs. But they can't afford a 1 - 2% increase in total business costs?
