""“I think poverty to a large extent is also a state of mind,” he said, according to a transcript of the interview that was released on Wednesday. “You take somebody that has the right mind-set, you can take everything from them and put them on the street, and I guarantee in a little while they’ll be right back up there.”"

right back up where?

Is he referring to apathy? brought on by racism, poverty, social invisibility, economic hopelessness? If they have the right mind set then....oh, FORGET IT!!!!


wtf?

Translation:

It's all their fault. We shouldn't even try to help. Let's cut taxes on the wealthiest individuals & corporations instead.

I mean..i get what he's struggling like a complete fool to say...

it's the simplistic mind set that disturbs me (of course it does). These folks who think that people can just adopt a 'mind set' like flipping a switch?

It's the point of view of the Elite who have power through their reputations and contacts. Deprive them of money, and their contacts will find a high paying job for them.

Not so for the average Joe; however, we peasants do not really register as being human to the Elite.

Carson is so amazingly stupid. Getting up and going is one thing. A person's current financial state is exactly what it is and is another thing.
