    Do you believe that poor people in America are poor because of the negative lifestyle & life choices they make?  Do you further contend that there is a culture of poverty in America in which the American poor believe in immediate gratification w/o any thought of the future which they deem to be unimportant?  Do you believe that the poor in America have myriad opportunities to better themselves but elect to blame society instead of taking & being responsible for themselves?

      YES I do,  you hit the nail on the head  with  using economics as the  cause or effect of  child rearing , of social behavior ,  of thug mentality , of rioting in the streets.   Maybe - too many  of our  youth focus  more  on a phony image of wealth and class  and too little on the real substance of intellect and maturity .
      No ,not maybe -definitely !
