Really? and where would we put all these children? Overflowd an already taxed cas?
Break up families just because people lack the empathy to take care of those less fortunate then them?
Then you have to hire a fleet of social workers, rent buildings, and pay foster families a lot of money to take care of these children.
OR, you can raise the minimum wage so people can earn a living and *GASP* keep families together.
Bad stuff happens to good people. And they shouldn't be thrown away.
That is what seperates humans from the rest of the animals, the ability to take care of our own.
I dont' believe in enabling businesses to make a profit at the expense of people. Wal-mart loves working this system. Make the states pay the
healthcare and welfare, why they bank major profits.
And you can't say that if you make such and such, you can make it. The cost of living is not the same across the board.
In my area, a crappy 2 bedroom apt STARTS at 1200 a month. Try getting a place to live on meager salary, much less afford anything else.
The cost of an education isn't straight across the board either. And it not affordable and accessible by everybody.
So how is someone supposed to pay for childcare while they work and go to school?
The average childcare in my area for one child is 350.00 per week.
so many here are against a government that divides us, treats us like chattle, has no regard for human life, and everything is at their benefit. yet
they turn around and want to treat members of our society with the same exact attitude.
You can judge a quality of society in how about they treat their poor. And many here still exhibit a dog eat dog mentality.
And they must be fortunate to not have to know how to scrape out an existence.
I hope you never have to know how it is to do so, but I am sure that if you are ever in that spot, you would want help too.
I love this statement, "don't have children you can't take care of"
what if they could? what if a spouse runs out on them? what if they were widowed? or costly and lengthy illness strikes the family.
It must be so nice to live in such a cut and dry, black and white world.
When so many people run around saying "I, I, I, why should I have too....? Why shouldn't I get?.... Why not me?...
Don't be surprised when the next generations say I,I,I and end up showing no regard for their fellow man and toss this generation to the curb for
their own benefit.
