Re: PK on the failed war on poverty

68 views?  A few must have readi it.  Too well documented to argue with? Or just simply "can't be"?

Even giving any reasonable consideration to the points presented might be cause for expulsion from the homey tribe down at the Bowl and Brew.

 

I should know, I got kicked out a long time ago.

Ignores demographics, vague and simplistic, not worth the waste of time to read.  

 

It's a logical flaw to think that inability to refute is the cause of lack of response.

Re: PK on the failed war on poverty

Not sure what you meant by "ignores demographis"...age? race? socio-economic strata? ...whatever.

 

Demographics specifically mentioned here:

Yupp...the old "it simply can't be" crowd.  Maybe one reason to not miss the old feed mills and men's barber shops that were in every town not that long ago.  Now, as you imply, most of the places where such assuredness is shared among those who know that it "can't be" serve alchohol.  Except for the church social halls, of course. At least the Protestant ones.

Re: PK on the failed war on poverty

more vague unattributed bs.      

 

 

'There’s a consensus that without the war on poverty, other forces (such as mass incarceration, a rise in single mothers and the decline in trade unions) would have lifted poverty much higher.'

 

concensus among who? and how did they prove the war on poverty was not causal to the things mentioned.

If you've read one kruger column you've read them all. What we need are death panels and sales tax. There is no problem which can't be solved by bigger, more powerful government.
