Dems: Poor Always with Them?

NOTE: If you're looking for the explosive column about Teddy Kennedy (now in the hospital with stroke symptoms) conspiring with the Soviet KGB in the 1980s, you need to scroll down one column. That piece has generated a great deal of interest, and I hope you'll bring it to the attention of your friends and political allies.

On my blog focused on Hillary Supporters, I have several columns on how the Democrats' "Old Boys Network" (led by Howard Dean and Barack Obama) is unfairly denying Sen. Clinton the nomination.

The following is from "LargeBear" (Randy) a proud member of the large (and growing) "Black Conservatives" group on Yahoo:

"Quote of the week from Charles Barkley ( for those of you that don't know, he's a former basketball NBA Allstar that is a sports commentator and should run for office with this in-sight)."

"Poor People have been voting for Democrats for the last 50 years, and they are still poor."

My comments:

"Randy, the poor people voting for Democrats in the vain hope that things will improve reminds me of two of my favorite quotes:

"The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over in the hope that it will somehow produce different results." and,

"Sometimes all of life seems a preparation for something that never happens." (W. B. Yeats, Irish poet)

A truth you won't hear from Obama or his allies: If a political party has a solid hold on a certain voting bloc, the last thing it wants to see is that group somehow disappear (i.e., in this case, have the poor get "un-poor").

One of my problems with Obama is that he won't level with us about his own wealth -- $5 million-plus from book deals in the last several years. His tax plans seems designed to ensure that very few Americans will have the opportunities he did to accumulate wealth. (Note: Obama's wife, Michelle, made $300,000-plus per year doing something called "community outreach."
