    It is a result of Federal Welfare incentives for the poor to produce more children and get paid to do nothing! The Govenment's policies has grown proverty, not shrunk it. The Dems like having people dependent on Federal handouts as it helps to keep them in power.
    As far as the cities you cite, none of them would I consider as a place to live. They all differ from Detroit only in the diversity of the local economy.

    That's half true. The intent is to support children in poverty. There is an encouragement to engage in family planning. But no one wants the government to forcefully tie them down to a gurney and get the left gonad removed.

    Certainly, there are things the system does to lock in recipients. The reforms passed when Clinton was president with republican support has done a lot to reduce long termers. Life time limits have worked well in that regard.

    One of the things that really works in getting people of the dole is an aggressive program to train people in getting job finding skills. I am not talking trade or college education. But how to dress, how to write a resume, how to present yourself. Sign up before you see the financial worker. Doesn't matter how many kids you have at home. Show up everyday at the job center for four hours until you get a job. If I had it my way i'd make it 8 hrs.

    In Detroit's case, the only thing that seems to have any effect is a aggressive law enforcement. But that ping- pongs back and force as people raise hob about taxes an budgets.

    In the 60's Johaness Spreen, Chief of Police, put out a team of officers disguised as drunks, women and old ladies. When these guys were jumped the officer and his backup attempted to make an arrest. Enough of the criminals fled the officers and were shot. The crime rate plummeted during the program. Then a 14 year old kid was shot in the back one night. The courts ordered a halt to the program.

    As Cory mentioned, you really are entertaining. So you opted for a spot in the peoples republic of Minnesoooooota...that voted in an ex pugalist for their governor...and are in the process of voting in an EX...and I do mean EX comedian socialist for a senator. Yep, you made the correct choice. Does the "frying-pan-into-the-fire" phrase ring a bell with you?

    When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

    We had the choice of the Comedian, the icumbent who made his lifes work going on every fact finging trip, and an also ran. The recount battle went for months and Coleman won the first recount. Franken won another and the Dems had a court order declaring Franken the winner. I don't think they even counted the absentee ballotts.

    Not responsible for those clowns. I voted for one of the lawyers not the rassler. I don't vote for professional funny men, either. As the for the Peoples Republic of Minnesota, LOVE it here.

    I shouldn't have used Comedian. He was more like the "Carpet Baggers" that invaded the south after the Civil War. Franken wasn't a resident but became one when he learned of trying to beat out the Republican for his senate seat.

    Both of them could have stayed in New York if you ask me.

    As carpet baggers go, ex- Gov. Arne Carlson wasn't too bad for a republican. Now that he is not running for any thing he is sure telling the GOP hard asses where the bear goes through the buck wheat.

    Say "Hi" to Dooley for me.
