Actually quite a bit WAS accomplished by the "Contract with America." We got the 1st GOP majority House in 42 years, for one thing, and Congress reformed welfare, lowered the numbers dependent upon food stamps, created a balanced budget for the first time in 30 years and eliminated the House "Bank" and "Post Office" which Democrats had abused for decades. They even passed term limits and a line-item veto, but those were found to be "unconstitutional." Clinton scooped up credit for all this, but it was ultimately the Contract With America that was responsible.

Actually it WASN'T "people like us." It was a bunch of racist DEMOCRATS who did all that. I was an adult at that time (unlike most of you posting here) and remember who it was doing this stuff quite well.

True. The GOP couldn't POSSIBLY have nominated two more incompetent knuckleheads to oppose him in his two elections. Of course, it didn't help that both elections were marred by rampant fraud...just as 1996 was and just as Gore TRIED to do in his own, incompetent fashion in 2000.

Brilliant! As usual, Dr. Sowell.
I refuse to believe that the majority of people in this country are stupid enough to continue to vote these vile people into positions of political power. There HAS to be vote fraud on a MASSIVE scale.
Try to remember that this is a story from AP...the same "news" agency that has frequently phonied up photos to make their phony stories more "believable."
High schools don't issue "degrees." They award diplomas. This kid needs to be kept in prison until he's served every day of his 30-year sentence...period.

He keeps talking about "income inequality" but is worth over $10 million himself, yet his brother lives in Kenya on $12/month and he has an illegal-alien aunt living HERE on the public dole. Indicates to me that he has no interest at all in "income inequality" if it requires that HE sacrifice anything...not even for his own relatives.

Judging from your posts here, you didn't have much schooling even GOING to public schools. Remember, Robin Hood did NOT "steal from the rich and give to the poor." He stole from the TAX COLLECTORS and gave the poor their own money back!

Another oldie but goodie from way back in 1941. "Blossoms in the Dust" starring Greer Garson and Walter Pigeon. If you can get a copy, BUY IT and watch it.
