Time now theoretically update message of the day behind all the racial strife we are seeing in. America right now behind all of it. Is, poverty. On a percentage basis many more African Americans are poor than White Americans. And poverty is a terrible state to be in. But in capitalistic America. The poor have it much better. Than other people. Elsewhere. Here the fax life expectancy is almost seventy nine. For a poor American right now and rising. According to the US census proximity thirty million Americans are living in poverty. The term is different for different populations, single individuals, married families, those who children and where you live. The common metric is a family of four earning below twenty five, thousand dollars. Now, according to the Heritage Foundation, the vast majority of those living in poverty actually enjoy a fairly comfortable standard of living compared to others in poverty around the world. Most, homes below the poverty line have two cars I didn't know that. Everybody has a refrigerator. No matter what your level of income is TV ninety eight percent of the poor have television stove and oven ninety, eight percent microwave eighty, one percent air conditioning seventy, eight percent of the poor in America of air conditioning cable or satellite TV sixty, three percent. And on and on and on. So the amenities are there basically because of the safety net. that. The US government provide support people they get a consistent stream of income in and they can buy things. Get Harvey is awful. And people are deprived who live below the poverty lawn however. They have far more than most other poor around the world. That's the point. Also. The Socialists will tell you. That a government run economy would improve the lives of the poor. That is not true. And it's hard to believe when you consider the list of items that I just mentioned. So Socialism's going to provide more. Staples than capitalism does for the poor I don't think so. If you travel to nearby Cuba which I did a few years ago. You'll see with your own eyes that socialism and communism has failed their. Most Cubans are desperately poor. They don't have anything. Same situation in Venezuela. In Russia in China in Vietnam. SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM IS A. Joke. It does not work it puts more people in. Poverty. The way out of a destitute circumstance is, of course education. And in the USA, you can get a free education. Particularly if you're a minority. From Preschool all the way through college. You gotta work hard. But it's there. I'm bill.
