The bottom half the population in this country is financially broke. I guess they're all the lazy sponges just sucking up tax your dollars lets sterilize them.
I don't blame the poor. The people at the top are stealing more from you then some lady getting food stamps to feed her 3 kids.
LOL and people think the poor are the problem.
Good grief just wait untill the YouTube generation gets ten years older. I don't see one of em, not the young ones, not the families, not the couple's, nobody who seems to understand in three years or so there will not be any more 10,000-100,000 dollar pay days and so spending all their time instead of going to school or working instead on YouTube is not a smart move.

At one of my jobs I worked, I was cutting gaskets for the US Navy planes. Needless to say, they had to be perfect.
I was being paid near minimum wage to do this..
It's like people dont realize who they are kicking out of existence. I'm sure they want their kids to grow up in a world where planes fly in the air and dont fall down more often. But, it just doesnt click in their that if they dont keep the people doing the jobs they are depending on being done at least somewhat comfortable, willing and able to reproduce, they might not be someone around to do it in the future.

On-topic: They have the right, unless we want to fall into eugenics over America 2.0. I do think welfare and social assistance needs MAJOR overhaul though.

There is enough wealth and resources in the world that no one should ever go hungry, worry about providing for their children, be homeless or suffer the many other false scarcity injustices of modern, corporate-controlled society.
In the words of Huey Long, assassinated governor of Louisiana, Share the Wealth.

Depends on who you ask.
Ask a liberal? Yes. Doesn't matter if you can afford it or not, you can have baby and make other people pay for it via subsidization in one way or another.
Ask a Conservative? No, unless you get pregnant, then you're forced to have it and both a horrible person and wonderful person simultaneously. Somehow. Because Birth control never fails. Although it does. But don't count that, because it proves me wrong. Even though it doesn't. Because God and Moral Superiority. Or something like that.
