I don't even know where to start with this much ignorance. Although I do appreciate you including the bit about your prejudice against brown people, even though it was never brought up. It's important for racists to be multifaceted in their bigotry.Aargh. I wrote a long reply and somehow it all deleted right as I hit post. I'll try to re-create it. Here are my answers to your questions. No I don't think it's an advantage to a family to have a father in prison. No I don't think it's an advantage to a family to have a father who deals drugs. No I don't think it's true that a white woman earns more than a black woman for the same job. No I don't think it's an advantage to unskilled laborers to have open borders creating an endless supply of applicants for the jobs they qualify for along with the related downward pressures on wages. No I don't think it's an advantage to go to a bad school. No I don't think that people are on equal footing, nor do I believe they ever can, will or should be. No I do not think that income disparity matters, at all. Yes, I do think that it is possible for every American to build a quality life from the skills and assets they have. Yes I do think it's important for parents to try to assist their children and to put them in an even better position than the parents were. Yes I do believe in charity and I do contribute freely (though not nearly as freely as my wife who has a heart of gold). No I don't think life is fair, but I do think that capitalism is the basis for the greatest economic system that has ever existed on this planet.
Is that enough answers for you? I'm pretty sure we disagree on a lot. Hopefully we also agree on some important things.
And capitalism can suck my dick.
The day will come when the industrialists will claim that we can no longer afford entitlements (gee, those immigrants sure could've helped), while the poor cheer for them as they wallow in their poverty. I wonder if you'll still think the poor are your enemy then, and if you'll still be cheering for Rupert Murdoch.
