  • Proof that throwing money at disadvantaged minorites doesn't work

    "Both Jermalle Brown and Douglas Bufford were gang members hired to play a small role in helping combat violence on the South Side through a program hatched by Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration.

    Paid $8.50 an hour with taxpayer funds to hand out anti-violence pamphlets in their South Shore neighborhood, the two low-income teens were part-time foot soldiers in the governor’s $54.5 million Neighborhood Recovery Initiative, a program he once described as “a comprehensive and concerted effort to keep our young people safe, off the streets and in school.”

    Quinn launched that program a month before his 2010 election as an answer to gun carnage in the city — even though murders that year, Chicago Police would later disclose, dipped to a nearly 50-year low.

    But instead of embodying a bold new way to fight bloodshed on the South Side, Bufford is now dead, and Brown is charged with his murder, putting a dramatic and deadly new blemish on the one-time Quinn showpiece, which was pilloried last week in a report by Auditor General William Holland."

    and that program got slammed by the state auditor as well

    he state’s top auditor slammed a $54.5 million anti-violence program launched by Gov. Pat Quinn one month before the 2010 election, leading to partisan cries Tuesday for a criminal investigation into what Republicans called a Quinn-controlled political “slush fund.”

    Auditor General William Holland described the governor’s Neighborhood Recovery Initiative as “hastily implemented” and said it didn’t target some of the most crime-prone neighborhoods in Chicago.

    Holland found that Quinn’s administration didn’t “adequately monitor” how state grant dollars were spent or on whom; community organizations that hired people with those funds weren’t maintaining time sheets; and city aldermen dictated where funding was to be steered.

      and that brings us to this : " My Brother's KEEPER program"

      http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...others-keeper/

      President Barack Obama spoke Thursday at the White House, where he announced "My Brother's Keeper" - a new initiative to help young men and boys of color succeed.

      He described the program as one that "goes to the very heart of why I ran for President" and dove into his own life to explain why such an initiative is needed, speaking candidly about his father, drugs and race.

      A White House official said Obama improvised a good portion of his remarks and was more emotional than many planners of the event had anticipated.



      "I didn't have a dad in the house, and I was angry about it, even though I didn't necessarily realize it at the time. I made bad choices. I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didn't always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short," the President said.


      AND THE POTUS LARGELY DIDN'T HAVE A MOTHER IN THE HOUSE EITHER; IT WAS HIS WHITE GRANDPARENTS WHO PROVIDED THE PRIMOSE PATH TO THE WHITE HOUSE FOR THIS UNGRATEFUL, UNDER QUALIFIED COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.

      and this is the THANKS that she gets:
