So why are SOME of the poor... poor?

--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I love Thomas Sowell. Anyone here read his book?


--------------------
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson

Basically, from what I gather(and I may have missed something due to my ADHD), he's saying that the bottom 20% are the top 20% at a different stage in their life. In other words, they're High School and College kids working minimum wage jobs(or not working) and have yet to establish themselves. I belong in this category.

HOWEVER, this group is not the group that concerns me. In case you haven't noticed, there are actually people in REAL poverty who will NEVER be anywhere close to the top 20%. These are the people who are getting the short end of the stick, with inferior public schools, biased standardised testing, and general apathy towards them.
