Oh NO,I'VE GOT THE POVERTY GENE!!

But it’s okay,I’m white.
See, there’s this guy named Hartwho actually believes there IS a poverty gene. He’s running for congress in Tennessee and he’s won…well, read the link.

I’d never heard of eugenics before. So I may be genetically predisposed to the middle-class? Damn. So much for my plans of world domination through the ruthless acquisition of all the money in the western hemisphere. Looks like the best I can hope for is taking over North St Louis County.

You might want to check out this thread that’s been going in the BBQ Pit.

From the article:

I’d like to hear what rights he thinks white children aren’t getting that minorities are getting. Sadly, that would mean having a conversation with this wingnut.

And I liked this bit also:

Yeah, I’d get the hell out of Dodge too.

I keep trying to get out of this state, really.
At least I live on the other side of the state from him. That’s a minor relief, though.

Baker:

Yeah, you’re right. I guess I didn’t think there would be any controversy,so I didn’t check the PIT.
