Ain’t I a Person



What does poverty look like in America today? Keith Kilty, Ohio State College of Social Work Professor Emeritus, puts a human face on poverty in his eye-opening documentary, Ain’t I A Person. Kilty examines issues ranging from “What is poverty?” to “What it means to be poor” and dispels many of the myths and stereotypes associated with it. A discussion led by Kilty will follow the showing.

8. The poster about putting money into it if it were a real war just made me think...

...we put all that damn money into the "War on Drugs" and that ain't a real war! I am glad to see you are getting responses to this thread. The last one I saw about this tragedy didn't fare so well.

13. If they want us dead

 

then they should be honest about it and put a bill forward legalizing doctor assisted suicide.

I have no intention of lingering in misery for their amusement!
