    This is the threshold problem I mentioned earlier.

    There are a lot of ideas that need to come to the table in the discussion of responsible gun ownership.
    There needs to be a balance between the right of ownership and the threshold to being able to achieve this ownership.
    The threshold is where the rubber meets the road and where I suspect the arguments to ensue.
    Responsible gun ownership is certainly defined differently in our country

    More insight.  Hard to argue with it.  Guess I should just accept any replies whether they are true or make sense or even pertain to my earlier comments.
    But hey, nice debating with you

    Incredible insight there.
    Maybe a 7 parent family

    Maybe pay them to get married or at least stop paying them to essentially not to get married?

    14th Amendment not always as clear as some think

    I am saying there is systemic oppression and most of it is through "system" oppression.
    Good intentions as are spouted here all the time, do not necessarily form good solutions. 
    Just like Trump or Sanders.  Both try to tell everyone what the problems are, but we all know them.  How do you fix them and not make them worse?
    Forming a system to help people that encourages them not to get married and have 2 parent families is oppression and breaks up a generally conservative group of people. (blacks). But, it happens with whites too like I mentioned in Appalachia.  No system is without faults, but 2 parent families' kids are automatically several steps in front of one parent family kids.
    Rather than seeing this and developing a system to create more 2 parent families, the government goes the opposite direction.

    How many black brain surgeons from the ghetto can you count.  Maybe I was wrong, 1 in 100k?
    Obviously the number was just for discussion.  There are no real numbers judging success because if there were, people of the left and right would skew them for their own purposes.  Pubs would say that Carson was not a success and Dems would say everyone was a success.
    I was just using the numbers for an example for conversation.  I am sure Cantrell has the exact number from his personal database that he will share shortly

    So what are we saying?  That government DOES work and the one Ben Carson kid in 15K kids, proves it?  So Ben Carson is someone the left now admires as a product of their system?  And yet, coming from that system, he of all people should know its merits and faults, and he is against it.
    Can't tell which side of the fence you guys are dwelling these days, but 1 kid in 15K as a success does not seem like good math

    You actually just respond without reading don't you.
    Go to the Appalachian mountains and talk to all the black folks up there.  You know, the ones that the Dem president went to see in the 60's.  What, can't find em?  Only whites up there?  Once again, it is the poor and anyone who follows the government.  Poor, black poor, white poor, latino poor.  See the common word used here?  Poor.
    Now, take your hands off the keyboard, re read my earlier post, then respond.  Or, just say whatever you want, critical thinking and debate are not your strengths

    I suppose the chips on your shoulders do most of your thinking and speaking
    Surprise, but, I believe exactly the opposite of your quick draw response.  I believe government is the one breaking up families with their "feeling" approach to poverty.  I believe that all races value family, but the government supersedes the role of fathers and replaces them.  It has nothing to do with race.  Everyone that went for the governments idea of "we can help" ended up getting burned.  I was responding to your "it comes down to 3 things" approach to solving the issues of the poor

    Have not seen the numbers to know if it would work. Cain had his 9 9 9 plan, guess this would be the 10 10 10 plan.
    Also, you hear that the top 1% pay 75% of the taxes, but also that they pay much less than their employees due to loopholes, so who knows?  Lots of talking points out there

    Do you think single parent families or 2 parent families kids face a better future?
