    Blah, blah, blah.. it's 100% luck.

    Unless you can choose to be born into one of those categories, mentally and physically sound.
    I have never seen live bones, but I know that they are often used by rich people to decorate the interior.

    Yes, fighting fire with fire...course at this point, we don't no if that ONE post I am referring to is  not actually a fact.

    Good catch, but alt facts is not my modus operandi.

    Here is a source of the gender gap. It's a good source, it has the word christian in it.....

    This is a comparison of men and women with equal skills and experience who have the same jobs, but women get payed less....well, because men kinda run the system and men pay women less.

    It is a perpetuation of the American culture from a not too distant past. You know, "the good ole days."

    Some folks, older white poorly educated, are just stuck in the past.









    Those women all look happy.

    Mark,  Not that it matters to the argument, but Jews are higher earners than Indians/Hindus or Asians.  http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/10/11/how-income-varies-among-u-s-religious-groups/

    But what you point out, and I agree with, it is that achievement starts with the family and its values, and it's realized by education -- but what you seem to be moving right past is that it is easier said than done with broken families, unstable living situations, and not enough food to eat.

    So rather than focus on the "victimhoood" or "liberals" as the problem -- or make this a partisan issue when it should not be --  why not get at the root cause and solutions?

    You're falling into the trap of partisan politics disinterested in the solution, IMO, as is Fins, and pointing to victimhood as the problem is an equally contagious disease that similarly changes nothing.

    *I knew Jews made more $; but they are not always classified as a Race/skin color.  

    I agree with trying not to falling into a partisan trap.  (I equally dislike most republicans/democrats policies)  

     However, when there is a large majority of the population who want to have the govt forcibly "steal" from those who produce in this society to try to "level the field".. I take issue with that mentality.  The Bernie Sanders/democratic socialism crowd mentality is a very dangerous and slippery slope.  History has proven this over and over again. 

    Earlier in this thread; I typed what I would change day 1, had I been elected "king" or whatever!  I honestly think that many of those changes would help out those who are born into poverty.  (we should also discourage people from having kids until they are financially able to care for their family)  I am sure we all know of people who have numerous kids, and their entire family is basically a drain on society.. (go to polk/pasco county and see for yourself)

    Not only do they want to “level the playing field “ as they call it, they want to abolish jurisprudence.

    Something very bad is fixing to happen. The left has become unhinged and dangerous. 
    Ricine laced letters are being sent, in your face confrontations are the norm. 
     They already tried to kill a group of Congressmen. 
    Police escorts are now in place.

    Will be our downfall. It has become the driving force in everything that our federal government does. It steers our national dialogue in directions that offer ZERO posibility of productivity.

    It limits our potential, stagnates our plans and costs the taxpayers hundreds of billions each year.

    It is insidious yet as destructive to our future as any war or national disaster that has ever faced our nation. 
    I would say that governance by racist, misogynist, bigoted, homophobic good ole white boys has screwed this country up pretty good.

    We need more women in control...not angry pasty fat white dudes.

    Self loath much? Loosen that plastic helmet and let the blood flow.

    As long as the "Kavanaugh Thread" is permitted and active there should be no complaints about what is and what isn't political.

    Jewish doctors and lawyers are getting a boost from the high-paid ones like Seinfeld.
