    ”Kill the Poor”

    Efficiency and progress is ours once more
    Now that we have the Neutron bomb
    It's nice and quick and clean and gets things done
    Away with excess enemy
    But no less value to property
    No sense in war but perfect sense at home:

    The sun beams down on a brand new day
    No more welfare tax to pay
    Unsightly slums gone up in flashing light
    Jobless millions whisked away
    At last we have more room to play
    All systems go to kill the poor tonight

    Gonna
    Kill kill kill kill Kill the poor:Tonight

    Behold the sparkle of champagne
    The crime rate's gone
    Feel free again
    O' life's a dream with you, Miss Lily White
    Jane Fonda on the screen today
    Convinced the liberals it's okay
    So let's get dressed and dance away the night

    While they:
    Kill kill kill kill Kill the poor:Tonight

    Actually, I would rather not.

    If a person cannot come out and say what they mean strait up, that means that there is somehow something wrong with what they are saying, something they feel is pushing the line.



    I will play innocent and say that they are talking about the mom-and-pops and long-term RESPECTED residents of the "area". He is complaining about Starbucks, TGIF, Red Lobster and The Gap.


    Or maybe she is. I dunno. :shrug:

    If it weren't for capitalism New York would be more like La Habana, Cuba. Imagine all of New York being just like Harlem. No Midtown, no downtown, no central park, just one solid uniformly poor neighborhood. Also imagine a church being the tallest building in the city AND imagine the tallest church in New York being much shorter than it is today and that is what NYC would be without capitalism.

    I'll bet in 25 years there will be no more true "poor" areas on manhattan island.

    Agreed, most likely they will all continue to spread outward, as more and more people come to NYC

    Where'd you come up with that view?

    You might want to stop watching so many vids & movies & TV and educate yourself. Please. Then feel free to converse about the real state of the world in NYC.

    I wouldn't take the continued prosperity for America THAT much for granted to be honest... I know the administration does a good job keeping a lid on things, but it isn't going to great these days... Anyway, I certainly hope you're right, but yeah...
