    Because we create the highest earners in the world creating your gap thats a bad thing?

    Define child poverty in the United States of America.

    You can be flat broke and get hand out on a street corner and walk to a supermarket with every possible food item you could ever want available today.

    Venezuela doesn't even have toilet paper to wipe their asses.

    Different definition of poverty in any country besides USA.

    Sorry I did not realize being poor is so wonderful in America, my bad. Wage gap is not a good thing, if it gets to large and the masses don't have enough purchasing power. The last time the gap was this big, was right before the Great Depression. Yes making money is great, good for those who do, but it's not good for any economy if too large, or it goes the other way.

    This country was made for so much more. Brothers helping brothers. Human nature is just awful.....people just jamming each other trying to make money and gaining power. It is disheartening.

    No apology needed. If you go up to the upper Peninsula of Michigan and visit the finish Museum you'll see a photograph of my grandmother with about 12 other kids all in one school house barefoot and dirty clothes. They were not considered poor or in need or want of any help from the government.
    She went through WWI, the Great Depression, WWll, Korean War and the Vietnam War never getting any hand out from the government and after marrying my grandfather started out as an apprentice for Ford Motor Company age 14 after dropping out of school and up living in the one of the best neighborhoods Michigan has to offer.

    All because our government provided security and safety in their pursuit of happiness. Not handouts welfare checks or free housing. They looked out for themselves and let everybody else look out for their own selves. Not expecting to government official to care more about them than they do themselves.
    Let everyone live their own lives as they please and as you hear in the news every day people are dying for that opportunity to live in this land of opportunity.

    I have actually been there. Strange my wives grandfather who was an orphan lived a similar life, as did my grandfather who dropped out in the 8th grade.

    Today can one drop out and get a good paying job? Walk into Ford? The world has changed, we have to do a better job anticipating the change and not reacting to it.

    Small world :-) I'm a junior college dropout myself. I think the big concern today is automated teller's and robots. I think we need to stand up in insist we deal with humans not check ourselves at out at stores and talk to computer on the phones.
    With that said I think kids and people need to do a better at being employable.
    Living in Florida you don't see any of these immigrants out of work and protesting about government handouts. Just the American kids.

    15 years ago you would see buses and vans loaded down with immigrants going to and from work each day. Now you see them driving new cars and trucks, their wives jogging and going to the gym. And them buying homes in the nicer neighborhoods. All from hard work. My heart goes out to them or anybody willing to put in a hard days work and pull his own weight.
    They believe in Living the American dream more than some Americans.

    God blesses us.

    That is not the fault of people who do not reproduce before they have completed their education. I do feel bad about children living in poverty but I have done nothing to cause it, and feel zero quilt about that.

    I think if we are really serious about KEEPING America great we need to stop fighting amongst ourselves and attack all issues Reasonably.
    I feel the more the conservatives give into the Liberals the more empowered the liberals feel and the more they want. Nobody wants crooked corporations but call them all out.
    We all want to help those who cannot help themselves but nobody wants people just taking advantage of our generosity.

    And look at and I understand the former world powers in this world. Spain, Italy, France, etc and where their countries are at today with these advanced social programs.
    Let's not make believe America can do socialism better than they can.
    It doesn't work.

    If you anybody knows people in business from these countries. They will give you an earful. Very depressing.

    My wife constantly battles getting people to apply for good paying jobs. She always has positions available and its inside easy work that includes all the on-job training. Every business owner I know complains about people not applying for good paying positions. There are plenty of jobs available for those that want to work. Hand outs are easier. We have been told as much by some applicants and others that have quit. The system is broken.
    I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.

    Honestly, we have created a systems that provides a better life off the government dime than they could make working an entry level job at most companies. I don't fault the wages the companies are offering. It's the short sided mindset of the people that refuse to give up on the government teat to find gainful employment. They have forgotten that entry level jobs and entry level pay lead to better opportunities whether it is with the current company or another job down the road. You have to put in your time and prove yourself if you want to get ahead. If you are unwilling to do this, you really don't deserve to have a high paying job and you certainly shouldn't be afforded a better lifestyle than those that choose the right way.
