    We've gone well past that point, if you cannot admit that...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Gone past what exactly?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Subsidizing daycare is cost effective. It cost far less than the alternative - having one parent stay home and having the family qualify for far more dollars in benefits than the daycare subsidy.

    Say mommy and daddy work for minimum wage and get $100 per week of daycare assistance. Daycare subsidy is cut and mommy has to quit to take care of junior. Family income is halved. The household now qualifies for food stamps, rental assistance, medicaid and maybe WIC - and I guarantee those will cost more than $400 a month.

    Sorry, it's a peeve of mine. If you have a problem with those two statements then you should have addressed them, not make a vague accusation.

    Well I read the article and I'm a bit stumped - where are the Dads? Where's child support from said ex spouse?
    These children didn't just materlialize on their own.
    Their mothers surly didn't conceive via parthenogenesis.

    All the more of a reason NOT to have children unless you CAN and WILL be able to support them. The government CANNOT and WILL NOT always be there to support you!

    And per one example in the article: teh 11 year old who drove around on the bus.

    This article made me extremely thankful that I'm married - and chose to be a stay at home mom.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
