    Thanks for telling me your background. Like you, I grew up in a broken home with my mother drinking away her life. And, like you, I do believe attitude plays a major role in escaping poverty, and without that change in attitude, escaping that life is impossible. My sister, for example, wasted most of her adult like using and abusing drugs and alcohol. I wish she could have pulled herself out of the victimhood mentality, but we did truly have crappy childhoods, so I can't entirely fault her.

    I completely understand, as I had a somewhat similar situation myself (I was briefly homeless, then worked pumping gas while I put myself through undergrad and eventually graduate school; I received a $400 gift from my aunt to start community college, and that was it). But our experiences aren't typical, according to the research. That is awesome; congratulations! I'd actually like to hear more about your story, and how you clawed your way into your position.

    It is odd, but IMO less odd than someone calling someone a "satanist" because their RPF username is "devil". Is Duke University full of devil worshippers? Is Arizona State University? Should I avoid deviled eggs due to their evil influence? :tears: That article posits the theory that Roseanne pulled to the right to get viewers. But on Twitter, Roseanne was actually criticizing leftists like Obama, Valerie Jarrett, etc, during the summer, when that couldn't possibly have boosted the show's ratings. After she was fired by ABC for the "ape" comment, she could have apologized for any of her alt-right tweets, but she's been pretty defiant: "I thought the bitch was white" is hardly a socialist, PC response. Roseanne, in the 1990s, was a populist voice for the working man (and woman); one of the few celebrities who was speaking about income inequality at that time. It's no surprise to me that she is now critical of billionaires on the left; it did surprise me when she started actively campaigning for billionaires on the right.

    The local TV stations actually all produce the local content, which is what is aired the majority of the day. Broadcast TV stations in the US are forbidden from airing a network's broadcast 24/7. Actually, local stations have the power to veto what airs on their stations. This is why stations will pre-empt a show they don't like. You may remember 57 (of 200) ABC affiliates pre-empting NYPD Blue in the 1990s and early 2000s. But that's the thing: even though station owners can choose to not air something, they usually will air it anyway... because it makes them money. The local stations, owned by Sinclair, are partnered with the Big Four television networks, and will mostly air whatever the broadcast networks want. It shows what bull541t this right/left "they control the media!" garbage actually is. Sinclair is conservative; ABC, NBC, and CBS are liberal. And they are partners.

    Don't sweat it, Devil21. I learned on online forums years ago (and you probably have, too) that personal attacks are just what people do when they run out of arguments. It's just human nature. The Walk Away campaign aims to pull people out of the Democratic Party (a great goal, IMO). But Roseanne (the actress, not just the character) went much further: she didn't just walk away, she campaigned for Trump.

    No, 2,000 TV and radio stations are not news corporations or newspapers. They are part of the entertainment industry: they are the stations that decide what gets aired in people's homes and in their vehicles. I am a big Tim Allen fan, from back in his Home Improvement days, but despite what he says, LMS's cancellation had nothing to do with his conservative leanings: the show went from over 13 million viewers in the first episode, to 6 million in the last ABC episode. It had already had a good six-year run. The idea that Tim Allen was silenced because of his politics is silly, because they gave him a voice for six years. There are plenty of A-listers on this list. It's clear just from that list that it's not political suicide to be conservative in Hollywood unless you start calling black people ******* or apes.

    I don't think the phenomenon of tattling is limited to public schools. I attended a variety of both public and private schools, and the students were just as big tattle-tales in private schools as they were in the public school systems. I recall being tattled on for church non-attendance (in school!) and for briefly sitting (as a joke) in a cathedra (a bishop's throne). Basically, any time you force teenagers with only partially-formed morals to socialize with one other for eight hours a day, five days a week, for six consecutive years, you will end up with a culture of abusive, tattle-tale snowflakes, and it doesn't matter if you do it in a public school or a private school.

    You ain't wrong about controlled opposition. The gov has been playing a game of Demosthenes/Locke for at least three decades. Roseanne used to be a socialist, but her current Twitter feed has nothing to do with socialism. She says she's walked away from the Left: 1039579080121700353

    No, I'm not. TPC stated that "all" of the media and "every politically vocal actor and pop star" were on the Left. That's simply not accurate. Dannno, please don't make up numbers. I didn't say anything about 50/50, so your post telling me I'm wrong, because it's "nowhere near 50/50" is dumb. I didn't say anything about 50/50; only you did. You're attacking something I didn't say. I said the untruth that the Left owns the media, the celebs, and all the institutions is untrue. And it is.

    This is simply not true. Fox News, Sinclair Broadcasting (owner of 193 local TV stations), The Wall Street Journal, The Blaze, the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the New York Observer, the (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union, Clear Channel Inc (owner of 855 local radio stations), etc, all are conservative media outlets. And as far as celebrities go, Roseanne Barr, Tim Allen, Jessica Simpson, Hank Williams Jr, Gary Sinise, LeAnn Rimes, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Larry the Cable Guy, Ahhhnold, Ted Nugent, Fred Thompson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nolan Ryan, Loretta Lynn, Dennis Miller, Jeff Foxworthy, Mel Gibson, Tim Tebow, Stacey Dash, Patricia Heaton, Pat Sajak, Kelsey Grammer, and many, many other celebs are noted conservatives.

    But you had to star with something, right? You were making $45k per year, so you could use some of that as an investment. For most people, their parents' income is the biggest determinant of their life success. While there are exceptions to the rule, I'd like to know what income level your parents were at. As you say, connections to the right people can propel success, as well.

    I've read that the greatest determiner of future wealth is your current income bracket. "Takes money to make money," they say, and that appears to be the case.

    Exactly. He'll make more from selling the properties than he ever made from them as stores. He'll strip out the pension fund and then line his pockets from the sale of the stores. I'm sad to see both Sears and Kmart wither away and die, especially as the US gov is personally financing their collapse by supporting Amazon, to the tune of billions of dollars every year.

    Based on our respective miserable experiences in high school, where learning was actively discouraged, my wife and I have home-schooled our children. Homeschooling has definitely been the right choice for us. However, homeschooling isn't for every family. One of my son's friends, around the same age, was also home-schooled. He doesn't know anything about history, can't do basic algebra, and thinks the apostrophe is used to make words plural. He's a bright kid, but he hasn't been taught anything. It's up to the parents to make homeschooling successful.

    Thanks for the article and the video. These three academics are heroes. They've exposed the biases in the so-called Grievance Studies field. And they are likely to receive a major backlash from the SJW crowd as a result of their expose. I wish them the best of luck. The papers they wrote were ridiculous. It's very clear that these "GS" publications are lacking any serious peer review. Unfortunately, the SJW mob is likely to dismiss the expose as not relevant due to "Helen Pluckrose" being 2/3rds white male, and some on the right will smear the entire academic peer-review process, rather than recognizing that it's this "Grievance Studies" field that is the problem.
