People living in poverty do in fact think of themselves as living in poverty, sometimes that's the only think they can think about. This is not mutually exclusive from their feeling "down on their luck."
Erin Maher Ross's response to Paul Dillon has me rolling. I may be bad at reading women but I believe she told him, in so many words, to shut his pretty mouth. Oh Paul Paul Paul. Even with your groveling beta-male shtick, you still can't please her!
Did no one else see the massive logic problem here? Geisha's wear white makeup. On their faces. The white makeup is not an imitation of Japanese peoples' "yellow" skin. It's part of the geisha getup. So, not at all like blackface. Also, since I'm sure no Japanese people have complained about this it would appear that Tara Dowd has appropriated their umbrage and presumed to speak for them. So much fail in only a few hundred words. Tara Dowd would slap a pokemon out of a child's hands then lecture them while they cried. I'd call that "morally questionable," and uncouth.
Mark O'Russa said the thing I was going to say. I'll add I'm torn between Tautological City and Okay I Guess as to my favorite.
Reporting false facts is bad. Purposely omitting germaine true facts...also bad. Shame shame shame, shame for everyone.

So, North Dakotan boom towns are a combination of Gangs of New York and Robocop, with explosive lightning? And they're going to cause two decades of growth and far less unemployment, and money? Okay, I'm willing to risk it. Likely many Dakotans are also willing to risk it, but feel free to explain to them how you know better Ms. Editorial Writer. By the way, that at the end there was the worst tagline ever. Try a classic: "WHO WILL SURVIVE...AND WHAT WILL BE LEFT OF THEM?"
I want to hear more about the death and decay that must be composted to make a season of optimal growth. It sounds like that's where the fun is.
