Didn’t Alvin Greene have much the same idea?

On an interesting, but totally unrelated subject, crack dealers and ghetto street thugs have started running ads advertising ipods and laptops for sale...

Aren’t laptops and ipods the tools of revolution these days? This seems a little transparent and a little eye-opening at the same time.

I don’t think the answer is more electronics or more pop culture. Or more government spending.

With the way technology changes, this sounds like what in the mid1800s would have been “40 acres and a mule”...

What the ghetto kids need is what they can’t get. A father. A mother who gives a damn.

Did Congressman John Conyers son find his 2 laptops stolen from the government paid for Escalade? This is important because every kid should have a government paid for Escalade also. I am also thinking that every kid should have free dinner to go with the free breakfast and lunch. Lazy parents cannot serve a glass of OJ and bowl of Fruit Loops to little kids we should provide dinner so they can enjoy laptops on a full stomach.

This is cargo cult thinking. The way out of poverty is not having cool stuff like computers, Ipods and expensive sneakers. The way out of poverty is being able to read, write, do at least basic arithmetic, and to be able to speak in a manner that is mostly comprehensible to people who hold management jobs. Oh, and being able to do basic stuff like show up on time to interviews, save money (even poor people can do it), and look people in the eye when you talk to them. These are all culturally transmitted traits from parents to kids.

Jesse now sees that “rich” kids have portables and is sure that if poor kids had portables, they would be rich. Cargo cult thinking.

Jesse has been doing his best to prevent the black community from adopting and teaching these skills and values to their children for coming on 40 years now. Someday, today’s American black leaders will go down in history as the the toadies that kept black America down on behalf of their white democrat slavemasters for almost 100 years—the black overseer on the plantation, if you will.

My 11 year old just got a portable. Does that prove Jesse’s point? No. My eleven year old asked for one a year ago and I told him he could have one if he earned and saved the money. Then I helped him figure out how to make the money (it involves going out all day when it’s really cold and shoveling an obscene amount of snow). Then when he made the money, we sat down together and divided it up (tithe 10%, keep 10% to buy a new snow shovel or maybe even a snow blower). Save half the rest and spend what’s left over for anything you want. So he didn’t really get a computer. He got a way of thinking about how to structure your affairs that helps you achieve goals a year down the line. And he got the knowledge that it works. And, man, does he think that laptop rocks.

Jesse Jackson Jr. Way Out of Unemployment Crisis ...
Yeah, the same BS from the same people who claimed busing would solve the "Amish" education problem.
Years later it was the "we gotta' have computers in all the schools" BS.

Oh, yes. By all means, lets get every kid in the ghetto thinking they are going to get an ipod and a laptop for free. Of course, when that doesn’t happen, Jesse Jr. will be on the soapbox screaming that it was whitey that took that away from them, because whitey wants them to be slaves.

Meanwhile, government handouts are ensuring that all ghetto homes are equipped with a big screen television, all the junk food the can eat, and rims on the car in the driveway. My heavens, it would just be barbaric to expect that people living on the government dole get by with mere 'basics'. Once we made poverty comfortable, we eliminated the motivation most people would have to improve their lives. Afterall, just pop out a baby or two and boom - you're set for life with all the gubmint benies you can want.

wow. I don't know if I should laugh or get mad listening to this crap.
Oddly enough, the more I prevent my kids from using the laptop and ipod, the smarter they get. I'd say THAT is the way out of poverty.

I guess these ghetto kids need a hero though... one that got them a free house, laptop and ipod. Who better to serve as that hero than JJ Jr, right? ...damn that pesky reality regarding who gets to pay for it.
wow...

Hey why not? Go for it Jesse Jagmo Jr.

Daddy got US to pay for FREE landline phones and FREE Internet service for 'the poor'(1). Or as Eric Holder would say: 'My People'.

(1) Take a GOOD LOOK at your Internet and Phone Bill(s) and all the Federal Taxes that are in one lump sum. That's for those FREE programs for 'the poor'.

Of course with metals cost’ increasing by a factor of five for copper conductor in 2 years, don’t plan on every house having electrical power anymore.

As an Apple stockholder, I confess I must agree. Just make sure that laptop is a MacBook Pro. /s

They are already using Twitter to organize these Flash Mob attacks in large cities. Today the purpose is theft from hip-hop clothing stores. Tomorrow they will be the shock troops for advancing the regime's agenda.

How about they trade in their $100 sneakers, $400 PS3, $2,000 HDTV, their $2,400 car stereo, and all the other typical crap we see in welfare communities?
