TFerWannaBe: Animatronik: You can spend your life worrying about "because" and who to blame without solving a single problem.

How can you solve a problem without knowing its cause?

Gyrfalcon: You may now return to feeling superior because you know the difference between "cite" and "site."


Thanks. That part is important to me.

One thing I can look forward to during an anniversary of a civil rights milestone - being amused by wealthy white men holding forth on the problems with the black community.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: eiger: Is Will one of the Pat Buchanan types who think the Civil War instantly brought absolute racial equality and any problems thereafter are entirely the fault of blacks and liberals? I'm curious, but can't suffer to read his tripe.

This or that everything was fine as of 196555 are core GOP assumptions.

FTFY

/that liberal Eisenhower f*cked everything up


Apparently, some people haven't forgiven him for highways.

Debeo Summa Credo
Fark is becoming more and more radically anti-white every day.

No, it's cool. Some of my closest friends are white.

rickythepenguin: This vituperative exegesis, simultaneously accruing into self-aggrandizing miasma, with the palaverous thrum from the emasculated backbenchers, suggests at once a schism of the cataclysmic conservatism and the emerging state of faux freedom, tending to limn the rubric of calumny, inapposite with the intent of the Founders and damning the judiciary, waxing an affront to the rule of law.


It's like poop, but made out of words!

Animatronik: You can spend your life worrying about "because" and who to blame without solving a single problem.


A repube is driving down the road and gets a flat tire.
He stops the car, replaces the tire, and starts on his way, except before the car even gets up to speed, he gets another flat.

With all bootstrappyness, he gets out, pulls out a can of sealant, gets a temporary seal, pumps up the tire and is ready to go again.

This happens 4 more times.

A liberal pulls up and asks why the repube doesn't sweep away the glass that is putting holes in the tires.

The repube answers "You can spend your life worrying about "because" and who to blame without solving a single problem. "

Animatronik: It has nothing to do with idiot liberals and their idiot policies that encourage single motherhood and marginalize fatherhood.

Gyrfalcon: Let's all attack the typo in the headline and not savage Will for TOTALLY misrepresenting Moynihan, shall we?

The point that Will missed, in his haste to pillory blacks for all their single-mom households, which the article made and Farkers have ignored in their chortling over Subby's spelling error, is that Moynihan was quite right to note that racism in America is pretty much directly responsible for black women having to raise kids all on their own while their men are incarcerated or otherwise absent. A fact which Will apparently disregarded or deliberately chose to ignore.
...
