    Sweden, Germany poorer than most US states

    Race definitely factors into the equation. Though it's important to note that out of wedlock births have been increasing for whites with each generation too. Where is the source of your second chart(as well as the first)? I find it hard to believe that 82% of black households with children...

    Sweden, Germany poorer than most US states

    True, but there's no political solution to out of wedlock births. Welfare is essentially unavailable if you have no children and are able-bodies. So the purpose of welfare is to protect children. The children never asked to be born to poor and irresponsible parents. And we don't want to have a...

    Sweden, Germany poorer than most US states

    Saying Germany is "poorer" then the USA is like saying Einstein is dumber than Tesla. I don't even think we should be using the word poor in this context. Sweden, German and the USA are not poor countries or even close to it. Germany has a lower median income than the USA. That's all it means.

    Sweden, Germany poorer than most US states

    A "mediocre" life, lol. I think you need to read Mark Manson's excellent essay, "In Defense of Being Average": http://markmanson.net/being-average Mathematically, it's impossible for most people to be more than mediocre. If tomorrow we all became millionaires, it would cause hyperinflation...

    Sweden, Germany poorer than most US states

    Every one of your posts indicates that you only see the world in black and white. You talk as if there are no wealthy people in Europe, or that there are no entrepreneurs or major companies that come out of Europe. Listening to you, one would think nothing of value is made anywhere outside of...

    Damn, you really think the average European is a pathetic turd? Have you ever actually been to Europe? It's not such a bad continent. Quality of life is pretty high unless you live in some shithole like Moldova.

    Sweden, Germany poorer than most US states

    Actually women on welfare don't have any more kids than women that aren't on welfare. It's a myth that women on welfare are breeding like crazy. TANF doesn't even pay enough for per kid to make that endeavor profitable anyway. Also, most people on welfare are only on it temporarily while they...

    Sweden, Germany poorer than most US states

    And everything you said is why I'll likely be voting for Bernie Sanders. 90% of the reason I'm voting is for economic reasons. I don't care for the left on the cultural issues, but everything you said above, I feel like Bernie Sanders would be in accord with. I'm sure he'd support economic...

    Woman lives as a man for 18 months to see what it's like

    A couple years old but pretty interesting. Some lesbian goes incognito as a man to infiltrate male circles and see what men are really like when women are not around. She completely changed her opinion on men concluding: http://abcnews.go.com/2020/Entertainment/story?id=1526982

    The Bill Cosby thread

    RE: Bill Cosby Makes A Meme Request, And it Backfires Dramatically You know what man, the hell with Cosby. If he would fuck with a "woman" that looks like Kenny G crossed with Carrot Top in drag when he's worth half a billion, he deserves what he gets. Did he really want that so bad that he...

    Shooting in San Bernardino California

    Leave it up to right-wingers to associate Obama with this shooting. :rolleyes: In case you didn't notice, these people weren't asylum seekers. They most likely weren't even tied to any terrorist groups or acting under anyone's orders. Unless you plan on eliminating any and all forms of legal...
