Debt Debate: Children Rebel Against Adults in the Room

Watching this video clip, I find myself in another of those moments that come all too often these days. This one is one of the more extreme, but it’s typical of the surrealism that a normal, rational person faces when they listen to a liberal.

And entrepreneurship must become part of black culture. Blacks need to get that poor people are not poor because rich people or rich. The formula for more black wealth: less government, more ownership and initiative.
