    which is why they want more of them.
    Funny that hoe so many red states have higher poverty rates than California. In absolute terms of course California has more poor people and homeless because it well bigger than any other state. And of again the weather is such the homeless don't die off in the winter. Public sanitation is tricky in the US people in the US are well prudes. The US could put open public urinals and drop pits near where the homeless gather and betting that unlike Kenya nobody would use them.

    And we are yet to hear of same situation in any "evil" Red state. And if by "success" you mean being ruled by people who are unable to do things that were done by Romans thousands of years ago (like sanitation) then sure.
    You do realize how vast large the mortality rate in Rome (imperial city) was amongst the poor? And as I said the US has managed to retain its puritanical roots in odd was one is roman style open public facilities simply would be pointless.

    But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, when all those legs and arms and heads, chopped off in battle, shall join together at the latter day and cry all 'We died at such a place; some swearing, some crying for surgeon, some upon their wives left poor behind them, some upon the debts they owe, some upon their children rawly left.

    The point is that Democrats seem to be too incompetent to actually be in power. The other thing is that Democrats rely on poor people - which is why they want more of them.

    I actually like the world to have variety and it's great that there are East-Asians, South Asians, Sub-Saharian Africans,North Africans etc. That's actual diversity. Unlike the post-racial world wanted by white liberals where everyone is a... brown entity.
    Brown, Basil? why brown?
