“Rather, persistent, long term poverty in America arises from dysfunctional people suffering from drug or alcohol abuse, and/or sexual irresponsibility, or in some cases mental illness. The truthtellers who have studied poverty in America explain that persistent poverty can be avoided simply by finishing high school, working in available jobs, which leads to higher income through raises, promotions and marketable experience, and getting married before having children. We are talking here about simple, personal responsibility. Not too difficult.”
– Peter Ferrara, in the American Spectator today.
