How about policies that give the poor a chance to get out of poverty Herman or are you the only one who is allowed to do that?

Union Free and lower wages. It’s the GOP/TP Promised Land. It’s not a ghetto. It’s The Future.

Made a few minor fixes to the formatting and fixed a part where I had pasted some of the same info in twice

What a stupid plan.

Cain must have been the President in that DS9 episode with the “Sanctuary Districts” and the Bell Riots.

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin’
A poor little baby child is born
In the opportunity zone.

And his mama cries
‘cause if there’s one thing that she don’t need
it’s another hungry mouth to feed
In the opportunity zone.

Also, this talk of the “inner-city” seems rather old fashioned. Is every conservative a shut-in who just rewatches Death Wish over and over?

Since the 90s, inner cities have been going through a period of revitalization and are now more than ever the neighborhood of choice of affluent young professionals and creatives.

The suburbs are the ghettos of the near future.

LOL, I watched that episode the other night and had been thinking the same thing.

I was rewatching that episode just as the GFC was starting to bite, and we saw tent cities spring up. Eeriely prophetic.

By riding other’s people’s work in the civil rights movment, on top of it.

This guy really is the ultimate conservative.

Could they be transported to these ghettos in cattle cars painted like cheerful caravans?

I thought it was the liberals trying to urbanize everyone. Sheesh. Who knew the GOPs could actually come up with a plan? Amazing.

A shut-the-door-behind-you conservative.

Nah Cain’s a fuck-you-I-got-mine type.

14 aagcobb  Oct 21, 2011 5:25:47pm

That’s what the poor need; jobs at Chinese sweatshop conditions and wages. Only illegal immigrants will work in those conditions.

15 WINDUPBIRD DISEASE [S.K.U.M.M.]  Oct 21, 2011 6:12:26pm

can we call this guy an uncle tom yet?

16 barry123  Oct 21, 2011 6:53:20pm

Why doesn’t Cain go all the way:

1) Companies/landlords can discriminate on the basis of race/sex/relgion

2) Stores/restaurants/hotels can refuse to serve customers based on race/sex/religion

3) No Miranda warnings, no right to counsel

4) Contraception is illegal

5) Abortion is punishable by death

6) No public schools, universities

7) No public hospitals, public health service

re: #15 WindUpBird

No, because it’s not right, no matter who you’re talking about.

That term, and quite a few others, needed to be consigned to the dustbin of history long ago.

Doesn’t mean that Cain’s not an ignorant, self-serving, arrogant jackass, though…

18 Lidane  Oct 21, 2011 10:55:25pm

Every time I see Herman Cain I immediately equate him with Uncle Ruckus.

This new idiocy of his does absolutely nothing to change my mind.

Only if one as read the book first.

This is a riff off of Urban Enterprise Zones which have been around for decades and there’s evidence that they work. My shop is located in one such zone specifically because of the tax breaks.

It’s a repackaged ghetto. That’s all. Getting rid of the minimum wage and labor protections in order to qualify? Yeah, no. Not a chance.

Herman Cain claims to want to move people out of poverty, but his ideas would only perpetuate the cycle.

No, it’s not. Comparing an enterprise zone with tax breaks with a place where the minimum wage wouldn’t apply is silly.
