Joe Biden doesn't scare me half as much as the rest of the Dem. candidates. yikes.

I've changed my party to Democrat so I can vote in the primaries. With Trump as the presumptive Rep. nominee and my state always going Democrat, this is the only way to make my vote count at all.

Mrs. RNG volunteered at a homeless shelter for a while. Many who could have stayed there chose not to because then they would have (a very few) rules to follow. The street was their choice. But that just leads to the question about mental health and should authorities be able to force people to do things.

But Clara is correct. You have to apply and jump through some hoops to get it. And some choose not to.

Did they apply for it? Cuz that's what they need to do. It is available.
Many people got kicked in the teeth =
"Additionally, banks and mortgage agencies refused loans to blacks, making the G.I. Bill even less effective for blacks.[4] Once they returned from the war, blacks faced discrimination and poverty, which represented a barrier to harnessing the benefits of the G.I. Bill, because labor and income were immediately needed at home.

Most southern university principals refused to admit blacks until the Civil Rights revolution. Segregation was legally mandated in that region. Colleges accepting blacks in the South initially numbered 100. Those institutions were of lower quality, with 28 of them classified as sub-baccalaureate. Only seven states offered postbaccalaureate training, while no accredited engineering or doctoral programs were available for blacks. These institutions were all smaller than white or nonsegregated universities, often facing a lack of resources.[5]

By 1946, only one fifth of the 100,000 blacks who had applied for educational benefits had been registered in college.[6] Furthermore, historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) came under increased pressure as rising enrollments and strained resources forced them to turn away an estimated 20,000 veterans. HBCUs were already the poorest colleges. HBCU resources were stretched even thinner when veterans’ demands necessitated an expansion in the curriculum beyond the traditional "preach and teach" course of study.[4]"

Kaine Introduces Bill To Protect Veterans & Low-Income Families From Housing Discrimination

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) reintroduced the Fair Housing Improvement Act of 2019 to protect veterans and low-income families from housing discrimination. Many veterans and low-income families pay their rent through vouchers, and as the law currently stands, landlords can discriminate against them, denying housing based on how they pay rent. The Fair Housing Improvement Act would expand the Fair Housing Act’s protections to prohibit housing discrimination based on source of income or veteran status, giving more families access to affordable housing and a shot at economic mobility.

“Our nation’s veterans and vulnerable families should have the same right to a home as any other American, regardless of how they pay rent,” said Kaine. “I’ve seen firsthand the impact that discrimination has on a person searching for a home. We can no longer allow these barriers to keep families and veterans from finding a stable place to live. I hope my colleagues will join me in putting an end to this discrimination.”

America, where you need a million laws to get people to act half-way decent toward one another.

It's disturbing to me that any Democratic candidate would scare you, yet you're OK with Trump.

You know what the Bible says about that, don't you?

Sirach 40:28 (CEB) = "My child, don’t live the life of a beggar; it’s better to die than to beg."

Haven't you heard? The Dems are nasty Socialists!
But not the Republicans, who are giving billions (that's with a B) to the farmers that Dotard screwed so the stupid fools will vote for him again.

But that's not socialism?

OK, that's graft, corruption and a fucking crime.

Who said I was ok with Trump? FYI I don't care for him personally, I said he is presumed to be the Republican nominee. Please try to actually read the post, thank you.

There is only about 30 farmers in the US (about 3.2 million in 2012). So, why are they such a powerful political force?

Is Joe starting to fall by the wayside?

Biden, Harris in virtual tie after shift in black support, poll shows
The latest Quinnipiac survey comes just days after the racial confrontation at last week's Democratic debate.
July 2, 2019, 1:00 PM CDT / Updated July 2, 2019, 2:54 PM CDT

"Sen. Kamala Harris of California has catapulted into a virtual tie with former Vice President Joe Biden in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination — and she'smade significant inroads with black voters following her widely praised debate performance last week, a new national poll released Tuesday showed.

The latest Quinnipiac University poll of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters showed Biden with 22 percent support and Harris with 20 percent — a double-digit jump for her since the university's previous poll last month.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernie Sanders of Vermont were in third and fourth place in the poll, with 14 percent and 13 percent, respectively. Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, was in fifth, with 4 percent support.

No other candidate got more than 3 percent in the poll."

I expect an all-out smear campaign to discredit Harris. Hillary will have a stroke if Kamala wins.
