Which Democratic hero wants to propose we spend $20 billion a year on the inner cities

All of them, and you're being willfully obtuse by suggesting they'd pin it to a reason.

because, through no fault of their own, the poor black inhabitants

Now, that's some phrasing they could use. "We're committed to spending whatever it takes on these urban areas, because, through no fault of their own, the poor black inhabitants" - it's just the end that's off.

are brain-damaged?

No, no, no. Your Democratic hero says that through no fault of their own, the poor black inhabitants have been subjected to various health risks by poisons from the evil oil industry. Then let some Republican bring up the nature of the health risks - probably too much to ask that he use the word "retardation", but one can hope - and flay him alive for his racism.

The source of the environmental lead in question is the formerly ubiquitous use of tetraethyl lead as a motor fuel additive.

It began being officially phased out in the USA in the mid 1980's, but in my experience it was hard to locate even then in my region.

However it was in quite common use right up into the 21st century in Europe, so it should be easy to see cross-culturally if the same decreases in crime rate lag by 15-25 years there compared to North America.

As to the previous thread's discussion, here's the most recent proposed Balanced Budget Amendment:

`Section 1. Total outlays for any fiscal year shall not exceed total receipts for that fiscal year, unless two-thirds of the duly chosen and sworn Members of each House of Congress shall provide by law for a specific excess of outlays over receipts by a roll call vote.

`Section 2. Total outlays for any fiscal year shall not exceed 18 percent of the gross domestic product of the United States for the calendar year ending before the beginning of such fiscal year, unless two-thirds of the duly chosen and sworn Members of each House of Congress shall provide by law for a specific amount in excess of such 18 percent by a roll call vote.

`Section 3. Prior to each fiscal year, the President shall transmit to the Congress a proposed budget for the United States Government for that fiscal year in which--

`(1) total outlays do not exceed total receipts; and

`(2) total outlays do not exceed 18 percent of the gross domestic product of the United States for the calendar year ending before the beginning of such fiscal year.

`Section 4. Any bill that imposes a new tax or increases the statutory rate of any tax or the aggregate amount of revenue may pass only by a two-thirds majority of the duly chosen and sworn Members of each House of Congress by a roll call vote. For the purpose of determining any increase in revenue under this section, there shall be excluded any increase resulting from the lowering of the statutory rate of any tax.

`Section 5. The limit on the debt of the United States shall not be increased, unless three-fifths of the duly chosen and sworn Members of each House of Congress shall provide for such an increase by a roll call vote.

`Section 6. The Congress may waive the provisions of sections 1, 2, 3, and 5 of this article for any fiscal year in which a declaration of war against a nation-state is in effect and in which a majority of the duly chosen and sworn Members of each House of Congress shall provide for a specific excess by a roll call vote.

`Section 7. The Congress may waive the provisions of sections 1, 2, 3, and 5 of this article in any fiscal year in which the United States is engaged in a military conflict that causes an imminent and serious military threat to national security and is so declared by three-fifths of the duly chosen and sworn Members of each House of Congress by a roll call vote. Such suspension must identify and be limited to the specific excess of outlays for that fiscal year made necessary by the identified military conflict.

`Section 8. No court of the United States or of any State shall order any increase in revenue to enforce this article.

`Section 9. Total receipts shall include all receipts of the United States Government except those derived from borrowing. Total outlays shall include all outlays of the United States Government except those for repayment of debt principal.

`Section 10. The Congress shall have power to enforce and implement this article by appropriate legislation, which may rely on estimates of outlays, receipts, and gross domestic product.

`Section 11. This article shall take effect beginning with the fifth fiscal year beginning after its ratification.'.

What's wrong with this version?

Ex-Burglars Say Newspaper’s Gun Map Would’ve Made the Job Easier, Safer

“That was the most asinine article I’ve ever seen,” said Walter T. Shaw, 65, a former burglar and jewel thief who the FBI blames for more than 3,000 break-ins that netted some $70 million in the 1960s and 1970s. “Having a list of who has a gun is like gold - why rob that house when you can hit the one next door, where there are no guns?

[snip]

Frank Abagnale, who was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2002 film “Catch Me if You Can,” and is perhaps the most famous reformed thief to ever earn a legitimate living by offering the public insight into the criminal mind, called the newspaper’s actions “reprehensible.”

“It is unbelievable that a newspaper or so called journalist would publish the names and addresses of legal gun owners, including federal agents, law enforcement officers and the like,” said Abagnale, who noted that he grew up in the suburban New York area served by the Journal-News. “This would be equivalent to publishing the names of individuals who keep substantial sums of money, jewelry and valuables in their home.”

How about this: we just give $20 billion to inner-city blacks and tell them to spend it however they choose. Surely they would opt for lead-paint remediation. Or must they be told what is best for them?

Labor Sec Solis: All of these unemployment benefits have saved millions of jobs, you know

“We helped to provide, I think, some stop-gaps, and what I think about is, those two million people who would’ve lost their unemployment insurance — because think about it, all that money that goes out in terms of what’s being spent by that unemployment check, helps to generate two additional dollars back in the community so small businesses, everyone continues to keep their jobs, so, I can’t give you an exact figure but I’ll tell you that just by the movement the president made, we saved millions and millions of jobs.
Every government dollar given out equals two dollars back. So if we just give out nine $1T coins, we'll be out of debt and running a surplus!

That will be almost impossible to measure because Europe already is crime free because they don't have any guns; except for Switzerland which is swimming in full auto machine guns and as is commonly known is the crime and murder capitol of the world.

"...blacks scored lower than whites only because the tests were culturally biased."

That's always been true - the exciting part is tracking down the roots of the Chinese conspiracy which modified the tests so Asians come out on top. That and trying to identify the Jewish team which stole the Chinese secret code and sells it only to Jews.

How else can the results be explained?

Clarice

I grew up on Highway 41--literally--with leaded gas polluting the air 24/7. We also played with mercury from broken thermometers. Who do I sue?

I'm pretty sure my bedroom was once doused with DDT when we were attacked by bedbugs. And definitely the walls were covered in leaded paint.

I imagine the soil in our backyard was also heavily polluted..a rail spur to the Patrick Cudahy packing plant and the plant itself were just beyond the backyard, across the alley. We used to put pennies on the tracks to see what happened and despite my mom's warning that they were poison, I regularly ate the currents growing there.
Who do I sue?

Clarice

Also, the boys in my school played with toy guns and drew a lot of pictures of guns shooting bullets and planes flying thru ack ak. It definitely affected my psyche. They also always took the trucks in kindergarten,

Clarice,

I sure hope you didn't eat the "currents" out there on the tracks but rather you ate the "currants" that grew beside the track:) But I know that there are no more electrified railways in Milwaukee.

There used to be - the first - in fact Wisconsin Electric was founded to provide electricity to the Milwauke Electric Railway or Trolley system. No longer there but the WEPCo building was designed to be converted into a hotel if that electricity thing didn't work out.

Those ingenious cheese heads.

It began being officially phased out in the USA in the mid 1980's
Hardly any was sold after about 1975. Cars were required to be able to run on no-lead gas in the early 70's. The catalytic converter emission control on almost all cars since 1975 is ruined by leaded gas. They made the gas tank openings smaller so people couldn't fit the larger nozzle for leaded gas in their cars and ruin them accidently.

Lead paint was banned in 1978, but it was largely replaced by titanium dioxides years earlier. I hate to think how much lead and asbestos and antique pollen I absorbed when I gutted my Old House 14 years ago. Now it would cost a fortune to pay someone to strip the paint and remove old ductwork and pipe insulation.

I think it was 60 Minutes that ran a segment years ago on a black woman who was collecting $32k a year in tax-free SSI payments for her 8 children--no doubt she'd like to blame it on lead fumes, but she was in rural Arkansas.

WonderBoy and I spent Wed and Thu at his old grade school working on the computer lab, and the teachers were poking all of the kids and saying see, he played in the band here, and stayed with it in high school, and now in college he gets to watch every home game from the sidelines, and is going to Miami to play there!

We are back in Florida on Sunday just to get ready for the game. Our principal is a ND guy but our best friends are Alabama and they are there at the Fountainbleu with the team. They send their girls to the same school. Going to be fun on Tuesday during car-rider to see who gets the razzes.

Late to the thread, but I thought that the "Science" told us that the reason that the Roman population diminished was because of the lead in their aqueducts, in their plates, and in their eating utensils. That lead was was what supposedly negatively effected their sperm counts, thus accounting for the collapse of their birth rates and their inability to keep up demographically with the reproductive success of the Barbarian hordes that eventually overran them.

If so, then the "Science" should also show us that besides lead paint being responsible for "stupidity" and "criminality" in Chicago's highrise ghettos, it should also explain why they ought to have such low Birth Rates, and why there shouldn't be anything like Welfare Queens with many, many babies, because the lead should have prevented them from getting pregnant in the first place, better even than Sandra Flukes free contraceptives.

Did that part of the "Settled Science" somehow get changed?

Aw, that sounds great to me, Henry.

What Have The Roman's Ever done for us?

Here's famous Roman Architect, Vitruvius, (@80 BC - 15 BC) commenting on the use of lead in Roman waterpipes:

Water conducted through earthen pipes is more wholesome than that through lead; indeed that conveyed in lead must be injurious, because from it white lead [cerussa, lead carbonate, PbCO3] is obtained, and this is said to be injurious to the human system. This may be verified by observing the workers in lead, who are of a pallid colour; water should therefore on no account be conducted in leaden pipes if we are desirous that it should be wholesome (VIII.6.10-11).

And according to Wiki: Note that the atomic symbol for lead is Pb, from the Latin word "plumbum", of which plumbing is also derived.

Re: Moonshiners. Though I've never heard of it, and though 2 people bring it up, I believe I'll give it a miss. Reality TV = not for me.

Thanks Alice, I was a good lab chemist so there is a possibility that whatever comes out of (MrBeer) will be drinkable.

Or if one would prefer Executive Suite 311, one would be in luck. Two tickets left for a mere $64,000 each.

Whereas WonderBoy gets it all -- airline ticket, hotel, meals, sideline seat for the game (ok, sideline standing -- ND students do not sit down!), even a per diem that's more than my cheap boy would ever come close to spending, so he makes a little money on the weekend.

He plays the trumpet. Tell Frederick that sax players can be in the band -- it's similar fingering to the clarinet. (DrF plays clarinet, sax and flute.) But WonderGirl is my resident trombone player and claims that they are the coolest instrument in the band, since they have those really cool sleeves on their slides. Also they get to stand in the front rows when the band plays in close quarters. (Which has nothing to do with the fact that when they stand that way if a trombone player whacks the kid in front of him, it's always another trombone player. No, nothing at all.)

All kidding aside, it's been fun to watch the boy play in a really big band. There are 68 trumpets in the ND band, which is just about double the size of his entire h.s. band. Because they practice 4 days/week from 6:15-7:30, they all eat dinner together afterwards in the dining hall. They segregate by section -- each section has their own goofy traditions, except that the trumpet "tradition" for everything is a nose turned up "trumpets don't do that!"

Well, catthyf, being a fish eating family, we are definitly ND fans for this game. And the trobmome is such a special instrument that in the school only the kids with long arms are allowed to even try out for it:)

The list of the Great Blasters8 from the early days of jazz through the later years will yield some great influences if there are open ears. Start with Kid Ory and his influence on Young Louis, run through Teagarden to Kai and JJ, with some Rosolino thrown in, side step to Brookmeyer and his valve trombone, and you will have shown off some of the bestest that ever were.

The Blasters were the nickname of the trombone section of any Big Band, with Woody Herman's (From Waukegan, no less) section having the most power of their day.

"There's a yellow rose in Texas, that I am going to see,
No other soldier knows her, no soldier
only me
She cryed so when I left her it like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her, we nevermore will part.

She's the sweetest rose of color this soldier
ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew;
You may talk about your Dearest May, and sing of Rosa Lee,
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me.

When the Rio Grande is flowing, the starry skies are bright,
She walks along the river in the quite summer night:
She thinks if I remember, when we parted long ago,
I promised to come back again, and not to leave her so.

Oh now I'm going to find her, for my heart is full of woe,
And we'll sing the songs together, that we sung so long ago
We'll play the bango gaily, and we'll sing the songs of yore,
And the Yellow Rose of Texas shall be mine forevermore."
