The War On Poverty
April 16, 1967

In those deep valleys of decision where the giants of government ponder the complex problem of the War on Poverty, is the answer from the valley of the giants, ho ... ho ... ho?

This is the richest nation in the world, and we'd be richer if it weren't for the poor people. There are people without clothes and shoes and socks and ties and handkerchiefs and hats and underwear...some of these are nudists...but, most of them are poor people.

Poverty is necessary. Because without it, we couldn't have a poverty program. And the poverty program has the right answer. Good administration. You can't just give poor people money. The poor people will just go out and buy food and clothes and pay rent and junk like that.

Poor people have to have jobs. But, the only jobs open are in the administration offices of the poverty program. Twelve clerks to every poor. Now, the poverty program is running out of money. It only proves that poverty is expensive. Poor people can't afford it!

    Thank you,
