    The biggest thing lacking in poor neighborhoods are parents who love their children more than drugs, alcohol, and partyimg like a teenager.

      PE called me a racist this morning in the box. I think there's a quota in which certain people have to accuse others of being racist.....a certain amount of times a day.

        Since youve never seen much of the world, you have no clue what poor is.

            To make noise and JUST IN CASE. As of yesterday, my resident in NY said his hospital had numerous unused vents and plenty of others that could be double or quad vented if need be.

            He isna surgeon sonhe has had zero patients for weeks. But he is also medical and cardiac trained. The plans were to bring them in to support ICU (which IS expanded) but there just hasnt been the need so far.

            Wow.

            I could hear BMF kicking in those teeth from here.

            That is going to hurt for a while.

              Oh... ok respirators ARE in short supply, obviously.

              We make almost all of them in Chiiina. And the ones we make here are made of Chiiinese materials and components.

              Just another part of the economy and manufacturing (or complete lack thereof) that HAS to change.

              I too have seen my fair share of poverty and in general, the rural poor were far worse off than the urban poor (as far as possessions go). They did have the benefit of living somewhere that was less dangerous.

                  I have a nephew who works for Blue Note Bourbon in Memphis, and they just converted 75% of their company to make sanitizer.

                  I think Lindell was put up there to be an example to other companies to get their asses in gear that can help out. The religious thing is not that different from athletes going off on God and such during impromptu interviews.

                    Not doubting that it is not needed, but I located the original packaging. It said: "For spraying and sanding. ???

                        I never said you hadn’t experienced any of that, I just said it’s funny how urban poverty is the first thing all of you immediately jump to, especially when you’re fully aware of other situations that are just as prevalent. I grew up in rural Virginia in a county that had one of the lowest median incomes, I know how a lot of people had to live up there. But I guess because I’ve never seen 3rd world poverty, my opinion is useless. :jerkit:

                        I own a cabin in Shenandoah County, Virginia. I'll say hello to your neighbors next time I'm out there.

                          Those poor people in Va have access to gov’t assistance just like city folks do. I live in one of the poorest countries in Fl. I’ve seen rural poverty. Sometimes it is a choice. Hard work is hard, some would rather be poor. There is help in the US for anyone that wants it.
