Einstein once said, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over

and over again and expecting different results.’

It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats—yet they are still POOR

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by
weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You
cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further
the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by
taking away people’s initiative and independence. You cannot help people
permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”

Abraham Lincoln

Thank about Mr. Obama,

You are no Abe Lincoln

    This only makes sense if you believe the mayors either have the capacity to create poverty or to erase it. Detroit, Buffalo, Cincinatti, Newark, and Milwaukee all suffer from the loss of manufacturing jobs to overseas labor. That’s not something in the control of a mayor or local government.
    Correlation and causality are two different things. The incidence of eating ice cream and swimming pool accidents are correlated, but certainly neither one causes the other.

  2. What about the Southern cities and states that have high poverty rates and are run by Republican mayors and governors? I ask as a resident of the Jackson metro area. I was born in the Delta and have lived in the Jackson area for most of my life.

      The last time I checked the mayor and most of the city council are democrats. The sheriff is and I think all the county supervisors are.

      By the way I grew up in Greenville and Greenwood. Was drafted into the army at Greenwood 1969. A long time ago. Was born and went to elementary at Kosciusko.
