oh wait wasn't it the banks that destroyed the economy?
you find the death of children acceptable?
because you hate the idea of wealfare?
i am sickened by you
This is a classic argument - "it's for the children" people scream, "they are innocent"...
It is a tired argument.
This is true but when did paying for the lifetime mistakes of others become MY problem. I chose to have one child despite the financial ability to
support many - you know why? So I could provide not just survival for my offspring but so that I can set my offspring up for success with a good
education, a nest egg in cash and land.
I made good decisions, I saved and invested and worked hard. All for what - so others can reproduce at will and without any consequences and send me
the bill? This is stupid.
To take the fruits of one person’s labor by force for the purpose of giving it to another is theft. This is without regard to the relative
perceived need of the recipient (or their children) or the perceived wealth of the person from whom the assets are being seized, plain and simple. It
is theft regardless if it be at the point of a gun or force of law.
The only way people will ever be properly motivated to change their behavior is to have to suffer a consequence from the action. Action -
reaction.... Do people in 2012 really not know where babies come from…it’s not the cabbage patch.
The problem is that our society has made repetitive poor decision making too comfortable for a large segment of the population while penalizing the
remainder who make good choices. All, for the sake of the children…
Compassion is good, charity is nice but to do it to the point we are not only sustaining and indefinitely supporting the weak, stupid and the lazy we
are doing so without imposing any sort of restrictions. Why should people on welfare/public support be able to reproduce and not only that be rewarded
for it with more money at the expense of the others? I’m all for welfare for a teen Mom for a while – but when she has the second kid, my support
begins to dwindle and each one after that…
We have taken the role of the indulgent and understanding parent who mitigates on a regular basis the poor decisions of our children without the
opposite and equally important role of the rule/boundary setting parent who imposes limits on children who demonstrate the inability to solve their
A family with only the former would soon be bankrupt both morally and financially.
Supporting the weak and lazy at the expense of the driven and strong is antithetical to nature and why we are in the current predicament.

Life is cruel and unfair and it's even more so when your parents are poor, uneducated or lazy. Not my problem. Can't save them all as much as we'd
