I feel we are a bit off-base with this topic on this thread, so I shall hope that you and maybe your sister, will accept my invitation to a day in Kentucky soon. I certainly enjoy hearing and discussing such issues with people such as you. While you don't call yourself a genius, I must beg to differ. I believe you are "a worthy opponent."

Let's you and I start a discussion that might turn into a national change that truly saves our nation while providing our people with the greatest standard of living at all levels imaginable.

Since the 1980's when I saw the health care crisis developing, I have said that it would take efforts on every player's part. Likewise, in order to fix poverty in America, it will take all the players making changes. Does America have the true political will to say no to themselves?

If you would accept my invitation, please send me a PM. I would be very honored.
Thanks for your reply, I am a technoidiot who does not know how to DM. So please direct message me and I will reply. As far as saying no and saying yes it all depends on what we say no and say yes to. Yes, we are off topic but would like to continue this discussion. Health care I agree is a huge issue, but not only for those who have health insurance but for those of us who do and still cannot afford the co-pays and get decent care. It's a very complex issue and not the entire fault of the health insurance companies. What hospitals charge is outrageous and when an MRI costs $9,000 no wonder health insurance companies balk at paying. The entire system is messed up and in terms of ethics, just a notch above organized crime in my opinion. anyway, dm me and we can discuss further. Thanks.

Default move

The Highlands is a wonderful neighborhood, by far the most civilized part of town.
If you are a heterosexual and don't mind ignorance and low levels of education for a large portion of the community, then I would recommend moving to Louisville. If you are gay/lesbian or a compassionate heterosexual that seeks diversity, then I would discourage a move here.

What is your definition of civilized? If by civilized you mean diverse than yes the Highlands is probably one of the most civilized parts of Louisville. However, if by civilized you mean intellectually advanced and socially skilled, then there are many, many parts of Louisville that have those characteristics. There are ignorant people here but the percentage of intelligent, well mannered, and socially skilled individuals outnumbers them greatly. Louisville has quite a large GLBTQ population spread throughout the city, not just in the Highlands.

I can add that both my wife's last boss before she retired and my son's boss now are openly gay. I have never heard a word about problems. It's just not an issue.

You won't have an issue anywhere in Louisville. The only part of the metro I might stay away from in Bullitt County. Parts of it tend to be, for lack of better words, redneck, but even then I wouldn't call it an unsafe area for a mixed family to live. Don't let the race of your family decide where you want or need to live. If you find a house or school in the East End you like, live there, if you find a good area in the South End, go for it. Demographically speaking, the greatest concentration of African Americans is in the West End, but there are many African Americans and mixed families who live all over Louisville. It really is a non-issue.
