Well, Lurch, not everybody can make a living by living off rich women. Maybe you can sell your yacht, and in the words of your boss, spread the money around.

The root cause of poverty is government not staying within its proper bounds in some cases and not doing its job in other cases.  When government uses coercion in behalf of individuals and/or companies (0bamacare is a perfect example), it's out of bounds.  When individuals and/or companies are allowed to violate each others' rights with impunity, government isn't doing its job.

Most of the terrorists I read about are not poor. Islam is the culprit that contributes to poverty.

Most communist supporters in 1920 were also not poor. They were the children of the wealthy.

How prototypically liberal.  Poverty is the root cause of every single ill in this world, so the only way to cure those ills is to take the wealth - mostly that built up in the West by dint of honest work - and liberally spread it around to everyone else (pardon the pun).

In fact, one of the few areas where this rule isn't applied is gun violence, which is not blamed on poverty but (mostly) on white males exercising their Second Amendment rights in good faith.

Engels himself was anything but poor! Marx was a worthless human being who allowed some of his own children to starve because he was unwilling to get off his Arse and do any legitimate WORK!

"Islam is the culprit that contributes to poverty."

Islam is the culprit that contributes causes poverty. It depends on poverty to exist much the same as liberalism.
Liberalism depends on a permanent underclass for its survival.

Finally, an explanation for why Osama binLaden  was the mastermind behind the attack on US soil.... it was because he was raised in poverty.  Oh, wait ...... :whistle:

Kerry is an idiot.

"Poverty" is flooding the democrat messaging this week--I'm already sick of hearing about it.  They've even found a way to shoehorn it into a terrorism message.

Perhaps, they meant to say, "Idleness is the devil's workshop"?  That is they had jobs to go to everyday, they wouldn't have time to loiter and plot, etc..

Osama Bin Laden was one of the richest men in the middle East.  Didn't work out the way Kerry wanted it.
