I usually have about 15 books going at once. These are ones that I have started in the last week. I often reread books that I find enlightening. I obviously don’t agree with every statement in these books. Often, I find books written by those without any Christian faith to be very stimulating as they are addressing issues that are faced by all people.

I did not start any new books this week.

There are three things you need to do to avoid poverty… miss one of them and you will almost surely live in poverty for the rest of your life

The Research Proves The No. 1 Social Justice Imperative Is Marriage

In the 1990s I read about the advice that domestic policy advisor Phil Gaston gave to then President. Clinton.

At the time, the advice was mired in racial, ethnic, and class issues and was ignored and, to some degree, suppressed.

It is surfacing again because it is a simple, brutal, clear, irrefutable explanation of a significant percentage of our nation’s problems.

Please read this article slowly and decide for yourself how you think our country should address these issues in light of your religious, social, political, and other convictions.

Thank you for your time

It will be a good investment

The quote below will get you started.

Bob

“Marriage Matters Lots More than Income and Race
Jonathan Rauch writing in the National Journal, certainly no conservative, notes that “marriage is displacing both income and race as the great class divide of the new century.” Isabel Sawhill, a senior scholar at the center-left Brookings Institute, boldly and correctly proclaimed some years ago that “the proliferation of single-parent households accounts for virtually all of the increase in child poverty since the early 1970s.” Virtually all of the increase!

Professor Bill Galston, President Clinton’s domestic policy advisor and now a senior fellow at Brookings, explained in the early 1990s that an American need only do three things to avoid living in poverty: graduate from high school, marry before having a child, and have that child after age twenty. Only 8 percent of people who do so, he reported, will be poor, while 79 percent who fail to do all three will.”
