See my most recent post. I think law is the answer. It just so happens that I believe in changing the laws/removing them instead of trying to add more.

The population, in general, is pretty egalitarian. There are small pockets of assholes here and there...always will be (and some of them may have earned their bigotry through experience...still an asshole, but at least a more noble one). The racism is in the government, and how it treats black people in general.

The numbers don't lie: black men are imprisoned at a ridiculously higher rate than white men. There is a reason for this...and its rotten.

The white male suicide has quite a bit to do with soldiers suicide.


That's part of it now, but it began to rise after the last near economic collapse.

A combination of those hit hard by the recession, those the recovery forgot and yes veterans.
The veterans issue enrages me most. It is like we learned nothing from Viet Nam. The gov still treats those who sacrificed the most for them as disposable the moment their job is done.

As for institutionalized racism via drug enforcement in poor city nieghborhoods. Yes, there is that, but prison guards and cops gotta get paid too!
It must be said that the "opioid crisis" only became a crisis once white rich kids started dying. Note I said rich. Opiods have been ravaging impoverished white rural areas for a while, it took the suburban teen and sometimes his dad dying in order for it to be considered "crisis".

We should treat all drug addicts, victims, crimes equally across geography, income strata and color.
Stop locking folks up for non-violent drug offenses and start mandating treatment.




As it regards homelessness...that is typically the result of someone who is a poor decision maker. Mental illness is a frequent cause, as is substance abuse (which carries a DSM diagnosis)


Research shows it is about social/family safety net. Everybody hits a hard economic time, those without a parents house or sibling to lean on, relatives to loan money etc. are quicker to land on the street and have issues getting back to normalcy.

I vacillated on responding to this obvious shi# show but what are you even saying?

There is nothing wrong with living in the South. The fact that their economies are down has nothing to do with Trump or Obama it has everything to do with the Civil War.

AND ACTUALLY I work in logistics and we move ACTUAL MANUFACTURED PRODUCTS from those states daily and they are doing just fine compared to quote #hole countries like Haiti.

I think this post doesnt really show your disdain for the President it shows your disdain for people from the South.

Its a kind of barely Freudian slip from an obvious north eastern type.

Southerners can claim the civil war is the cause of their economic struggles if African Americans can claim slavery is the cause of theirs.

Or maybe we can just problem solve in ways that don't involve blaming events that happened to your great-great grad-dad 150 years ago?

No! apples and oranges, Southerners, and I'm gonna take a stab that you mean White Southerners, since there are plenty of Black Southerns and others who make up the south.

Black folks generally do not think slavery held them back, it is the 70 yrs of Jim Crow following the abolition of slavery in the south, while the north had it's own social hindrance.

The south as a society lagged became widely they didn't industrialized at the same pace, Slavery may have been a hindrance to the south's development, Agro States vs Industrial States, industrial states usually wins.

Obviously not.


But it's cool. Right wingers aren't exactly known for their humor or creative thinking. Well, I take that last one back. The excuses here are starting to get pretty creative..



Yeah, the guy with the Bill Hicks avatar is probably not even slightly inclined towards humor pffft. Y'all are comedians to me


Like watching the mental asylum during snack time in the common area.

Praying for all you guys to get better, yes. Please abandon the fantastical obsessions with Trump.

All things flow by like a river. When Trump is gone your minds will fill the holes with new obsessions and delusions and fantasies.

Please, get better! You created this pattern for yourselves! It is an unhealthy habit! It is not Trump.

I don't know man. I heard tell that you and all people affiliated with 'the right' lack humor and creativity. You probably also cause heartburn, cold sweats, skin irritation and frequent urination.

A simple yes would have sufficed, now the big question is how long have you been a patient there and are you allowed out on weekends.

Have it your way.

Yes! I am a frequent visitor of ATS and have been a member for about 5 years! I see these laughable Trump threads in my downtime during work, or sometimes in the evenings!

Weekends if I am especially bored!

Interesting that you get so upset by threads that have a dig a Trump, must be tough navigating through this life with such a reactive personality.

lol...you think the right are the ones obsessed with Trump? That one made me laugh hard.

Trump will be in the liberals' / socialists' minds for the next 7 years.

I'm not sure you guys / gals are gonna' make it at this rate.

Upset?



Yes, I am one of those Trumphumpers or whatever you kids call em lately.

Get real, I do not even vote and have no interest in politics.

I only wish others would stop being tools for the machine.

I am all for the LULZ, but where did I say that? Specifically, I enjoy watching the left grasp at straws. It's like watching a tragic clown slip on a banana peel or something.

In truth, I have no political leaning or loyalty.

You do have an interest in politics though, even though you didn't vote for trump you still feel the need to defend him at all cost, can you see the disconnect there ?
