The Myth of the Working Poor
An oldy but a goody...:
To stay out of poverty in America, it's necessary to do three simple things, social scientists have found: finish high school, don't have kids until you marry, and wait until you are at least 20 to marry. Do those three things, and the odds against your becoming impoverished are less than one in ten. Nearly 80 percent of everyone who fails to do those three things winds up poor.
Blue America is soooo intelligent (Even when they go to the polls because P. Diddy threatened them with death if they didn't), yet they constantly must be reminded of this simple fact.
