Comment history

Y’town fails its children

The "Great Society" and the "War on Poverty" have been an utter failure. In attempting to address the social ills due to segregation and Jim Crow, the federal government created a culture of dependency. Today, 80% of black children are born outside of marriage. 31% of black youth do not graduate from high school. The unemployment rate for black youths is 50%.

Our legislators, in their infinite wisdom, address these statistics by throwing money at the problem. Youngstown spends 30% more per child than the rest of the state and has nothing to show for its largesse. I have news for them; the state could spend twice that amount and it would not matter. If a child comes home to a house in which there is no father in the picture and the mother is barely literate herself, that child will most likely live in poverty as an adult. This is the case whatever the race of the child.

Personal responsibility, not more taxpayer money, is the answer to these problems. The government should stop incentivizing bad behavior. No one should bring a child into this world unless they can support them. The child and society as a whole would be much better off.

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan’s new book is about healthy eating

Some YSU profs back fracking ban in Youngstown

That's fine if they want to ban fracking as long as they do not use natural gas to heat their individual homes. In that case they would be hypocrites.
