Obamas view is indicitive of his feelings on the subject... Like many Americans he views having a child as a "hold back" for a woman.
I won't break his cajones for saying punishment, I hate pc word games
But it is what it IS
and that is: a statement as the majority of Americans and people in Western civilization feel, Women who have babies are LESS than the rest of us,
career is more important, self indulgence is more imortant (me, me, me) Finance is more important, children are a burden and:
Raising children is not a Good aspiration for a woman
and this isn't Obama, it's Feminism that was hijacked away from actual Women, by men, lesbians, the media, the Un and Big Govt
We live on an agenda of population control and it has become since the 60's Public Opinion due to a barage of brainwashing
I disagree Vehemently on the subject, we are apying the price in our own, affluent, highly resource available societies for 3rd world nations that
exercise ZERO birth control and in the end it mostly comes down to the UN because they can get a message out to the developed but not the undeveloped
world via the media
and it makes us weak and it is NOT a satisfying life for most women to remain barren
Most of our problems, high taxes, social security failure, lack of competitive military man power even in these 2 very low key wars, lack of educated
workers, even immigration feeling theatening to many of us
all boil down to )in america) lack of children being produced by 2nd-3rd generation Americans who speak the language and grow up capable of going on
to college etc, etc
The elderly border out weighing youth, so of course taxes are high, the ability to fight a war is low, social security is in danger et al...
and our only growth is via immigration...so of course the culture is changing and we are slipping into becoming a 2nd world nation slowly but surely
because our labor force is 1/5 3rd world fresh off the boat
and why? because popular culture says... having babies is an unworthy life, doesn't deserve financial support, makes you a looser...
and Like Obama... we say Baby in the same context as STD
and abort them like abortion is a shot of penecillian
and is this actually Good for America?
No our males are just shy of sexual predators because few have accountability to act like men if they get a girl pregnant, they know she will (take
care of the problem) so sex is meaningless and Far from Femanism women are "B17@h3$ and hoes" Meat, no respect is given
and women, my personal experience has been that 3/4 reach their 30's and look at their careers and go OMG what a crap life this is, why did I want to
and I went through that myself, The mothe rof my children reached 30 and woke up one dday and didn't want to work anymore and just be with her kids
and be a mother (she got smart) it was unfulfilling
But men are not prepared to handle the finances alone and it is acceptable for others to raise your kids
and what does that get us?
State educated kids raised in after school centers plugged with Govt agenda as oppossed to parental teachings
And we Wonder WHY, we are dumbed down as a society and people believe what they are told?
Motherhood... should be the focus of feminism, the first run was being allowed to work... to not be slaves, to not be in a position where men could
"Own" a woman via financial means
But what women asked for was not to be FORCED to work and live a mans life, only to have the option if the man was jerk or died and they needed too
What no woman wanted or enjoys is a world in which when she is a mother she is a piece of garbage who is "doing nothing with her life"
Obamas words reflect our culture which frankly in many ways is hardly still a step up from Islam in terms of women being treated as they deserve.
Women can work and have alot of sex ...YAY, but still are not respected and the value of what they give us...the whole of our population lol, the
quality of our citizens was what we lost when we gave them some basic freedoms
we didn't fix anything we replaced one set of bad treatment with another...
Women are still treated as the lesser sex
Comparing a Child to an STD... this is a MALE thing, a major problem, because it is them that will bare the financial repsonsability and many men fear
this (maybe rightly so give economic reality) but up in washington, 1,000 different things take financial precedence over... the money, tax cuts etc
for women to NOT be financially burdened by having children
and it comes down to, culture, a set of beliefs pushed on this nation by the UN to curb population growth and for what purpose that actually aids
Every child is a tax payer LOL, LOL eventually, the economics and growth are in favor of GROWTH!!!!
What si Growth? Ask China they know it's more workers, yeah you want to balance growth for sustainability
But this agenda, the babies are stds agenda is Negative Growth
Obama I cannot support largely on this issue... We NEED to make children or there will be no America, incentives should be given out, not negative
North America has plenty of room and resources and... If OIL being the only resource we actually lack is an issue than... we will find another way,
and we WILL, trains and planes get us across the country, subways can be built, nuclear plants can light our homes...
we'd be fine the Fopod and water and land are in abundance to a degree that is Amazing in America
The UN, wants our food for 3rd world nations, they want to tax our water for 3rd world nations
and they want us to believe having children makes our women whores...
so may the UN burn and die imho, it's a waste of American time
We are Europe Asia and Africas, food, source, war police, water supply... financial aid?
Anything else? Oh yeah we shouldn't have babies so people in Zimbabwe can have 11 at a time that we get to see on Tv covered in flies and fear
irrationally that our families one extra kid will make us like that
Obama of course has more money slated for those places too!
