Look, the comment was facetious. Essentially he was saying El Paso is safe, because it is relatively wealthy, because the federal government pours so much money into it, and that isn't a good thing. Pouring in money (communism) "works", except that it doesn't, of course. Not defending him per se, but he's not advocating communism in his remark.
Someone help me; does anyone else recall a filmaker or an author prosecuted under campaign finance laws? My sympathy for Dsouza is greatly tempered by the fact he broke the law, but that he was targeted at all is disturbing. A reasonable conclusion is that he was another conservative targeted by this fascist administration.
Let me guess....you hadn't been born when Reagan was in office, right?

Whoops, I shouldn't have responded! I'm neither sophisticated, suave, nor judgemental, nor particularly well educated by many standards.

I know a little of poverty. There have been times in my life were I had only a few dollars, and 3 for a dollar boxes of mac and cheese was my dinner. My father knew poverty though, at a level you never will. (Boots? He had no shoes most of his early life! You've had shoes your whole life, haven't you?) He capitalized on his talents and took some risks and worked hard to escape it. Now, what is going to school to learn the culture of victimhood going to teach me?

You're absolutley right SD3, but unfortunately many kids NEVER hear that message. We should print it on our money if we have to to get that message through.

I feel foolish for it, but I find myself here quoting noted social commentator Asthon Kutcher: "The only thing that should be beneath you is NOT having a job!" We have a president who COULD make that a rallying cry, and have a really positive affect in the inner cities, and he doesn't do it. That may be the greatest shame of this administration.
Beleive it or not, I saw passages not much less explicit than this when I was in high school in California in the 70s.

...an economic emergency created solely by the Big Government and Big Education.
In case anyone was wondering, fasism is alive and well in our schools. Not all of them, but too many. The teacher should be fired as too stupid to teach, and for being a waste of good carbon.
Maybe you molest collies. I have no evidence that's true, but so what, right?
