THAT is one reason why these girls collect welfare instead of work. Work just doesn't pay when they have to pay for daycare, costing probably between 150-200 dollars per week for full-time daycare. Of course, through welfare, these girls can get daycare vouchers if they go to school or work, but a lot of them just don't do it.

Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.
I hear you, but I am also afraid the genie is out of the bottle for the time being. The pendulum will swing back the other way, but probably not in our lifetimes.We need to get back to values in this country, and I am not talking about the off the wall tv preacher values either, but the wisdom of those of us who have experienced life rather than throwing up our hands and proclaiming that it is beyond our control.
I could not agree more. With puberty now starting at 10 or so for some kids, young and stupid has an entirely different meaning. I don't think I even knew about sex when I was 10. No one wants to raise a baby who is raising a baby. That is a reality parents of children face these days. That's one reason I think the free condoms are a good idea.Not horrible at all, but it can be a choice with consequences that have long term ramifications that immature minds are not ready for.
Well, it is fun. But I've always been more partial to practicing than actually reproducing.And if God wanted children to procreate outside of marriage, and at levels of immaturity to not be able to care for the life they create he wouldn't have placed so much emphasis on the act being specific for the purpose of building a family. Think about it, was God really saying 'allow your children to have sex, and reproduce because it's fun'?
Times are different and my kids are grown. All in all I preferred being young in the world I grew up in. It probably isn't as much fun being a kid these days.
