Forum Post: Fight Poverty: Occupy A Baby Mama

Poverty and income skew in America is bad. Illegitimacy is a major cause of poverty and is adding to the number of poor people in the country. It's also making income skew and unfairness more severe. So, have the brains to know where poverty comes from and then fight it at its source.

So, fight poverty, protest someone making the choice of illegitimacy. Occupy a baby mama.

Take on the Higher education bubble, student loan bubble, GoldmanSachs, and the federal Reserve all at the same time. Occupy the Art Institutes on Nov 5 in solidarity with south Florida.

Oh Lord, where to begin with you people. I suppose we should be happy that for the time being you aren't occupying your parent's basement, but now you're just getting boring.

That's right!

The only good Welfare Queen is a dead Welfare Queen!

I declare War on Welfare Mothers!

Elect me and I will hunt them down and redistribute their Cadillacs to Patriotic Americans.

No, but liberals should finally grow a pair and stop apologizing for dysfunction.

Will Mississippi ban the pill? Stay tuned, folks....

[-] 1 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

Will liberals ever confront bad choices? Doubtful.

[-] 1 points by cmt (1195) from Tolland, CT 6 years ago

You mean by donating to Planned Parenthood? Done.

Looking down your nose at people who make bad choices doesn't change anything for the better.

OWS claims to be against poverty, but then utterly ignores where much of it comes from.

[-] -1 points by Bambi (359) 6 years ago

I know. Hard to take them seriouslessly

[-] -1 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

It's impossible.

I agree, I just posted about this exact same thing and got called a troll. So if you are a middle class worker (clearly part of the 99%) but you are against giving money to the banks AND people who suck the system teet then I guess you are a troll. Whatever.

[-] 0 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

OWS is extremely selective in it's opposition to inequality. If one were honest about it, you'd have to confront decision making that obviously leads to poverty. They'd all do an occupy along the border to stop more inequality from coming across. But they're just not honest; they're the same old demagogue liberal moonbats we've known all along.

The sad thing is that I think something like Occupy is what needs to happen in this country so we Americans can take it back, but unfortunately, there are too many people to come up with one general consesus.

[-] 0 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

But Occupy is just the moonbat types I remember from college. You should see the Stephen Colbert video. He interviews a couple of them. It's hilarious and it really brings back the memories of school on a liberal campus.

[-] 1 points by upnorthgirl (40) from Glenwood, MN 6 years ago

I did see that. Actually, before seeing it, I thought that OWS was going to be just what this country needed, and then the local Occupy chapter in my area ends up getting organized by a mentally ill menace of society. Needless to say unless I want to get lumped in with that crazy, I won't be able to voice my opinion for the 99% and actually be considered legitimate.

[-] 1 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

They're just the 2% collection of maladapted goofs that've wanted socialism all along. The spoiled brats of a system that has given them everything.

Colbert really nailed it. He must remember them too from his college days.

Food stamps didn't crash the economy, though.

[-] 1 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

Nope, food stamps didn't, yet. Allow paying people to do nothing has consequences for delaying recovery.

Poverty and income skew isn't just about the drain on social services. Bad choices and an open border create more poverty. They do, it's undeniable. Increased poverty and skew is a social bad regardless independent of whether or not it's also costing us in transfer payments.

If OWS was serious about poverty and inequality, they'd have the balls to call out all its major underpinnings. And if they did, they'd have a mass protest of social dysfunction up in Harlem and a mass protest on the border to get serious about enforcing the damn thing.

GREAT POST!!!!! Go to the source: The Family Unit

[-] 1 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

That's what OWSers ignore: Choices. In the system they hate, most poverty relates to bad personal choices about things like illegitimacy or dropping out, yet that isn't even up for discussion. Anyone serious about poverty would talk about ending self-inflicted poverty. Occupy a baby mama.

[-] 1 points by Dalton (194) 6 years ago

And by a curious coincidence people always make bad personal choices just after other people crash the economy. The sub-prime crisis happened, the market crashed, the recession kicked in, and suddenly a wave of bad personal choices swept the nation, in the biggest episode of bad personal choices since the Great Depression. It's almost as though there's some sort of causal link between the state of the economy and bad personal choices.

[-] 1 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

No, the bad choices were going on all along. They reduced resilience and made things worse when we had a downturn.

It's really just an amazing mind fuck how liberals can just ignore what you do to yourself. Sure, it's all exogenous. Are you really such a dumb fuck that you tell your own kids to blow off school, get knocked up, get arrested, and bury yourself in debt and none of it will matter?

[-] 1 points by Dalton (194) 6 years ago

Your fantasies about me and my children, while amusing, are not relevant. Perhaps you could try to mention something that is?

[-] 1 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

Choices matter. Knowing that is a better route to a good life than is camping.

[-] -1 points by Sellerman (139) 6 years ago

B-I-N-G-O !! Bill Cosby spoke up a few years ago and he got crushed by the OWS mentality that prevails in that segment of the populace. It's society's fault...and that includes the 1%.....not the individual.....mental cases, all of these guys.

[-] 1 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

Dysfunction and it's obvious consequences are simply unspeakable to leftists. OWS claims to be against poverty, yet says nothing about major obvious drivers.

They should march to Harlem and demand that people shape the fuck up. But they won't.

[-] 0 points by Sellerman (139) 6 years ago

Baby daddy + baby momma = poverty

But, 'they' don't teach math like this in school anymore. Instead, the teachers strike and hold the kids' education hostage. Teachers are so freakin' worried about their benefit packages, they don't f-ing teach.....they indoctrinate! Leftists have screwed up this country.

[-] 1 points by Tryagain (300) 6 years ago

True. OWSers claim to care about poverty and income skew, yet their targets stop at the banks and higher income people. It's simply dishonest.
