    Mom can take the bus. Or get a bicycle.

    You guys act like the answer is so simple. "Oh well...derrrrrr...just stop being poor."

    It's asinine fantasy approach to a real problem.
    The answer is simple. If you can care for you kids, then you need to care for your kids. If you can't care for your kids, then you need to not have kids.

    Many of them can barely get off the couch....

    well, my mother married a no good alcoholic man, and had five kids. we are catholic. she finally divorced him before he killed her. we were then poor and needed assistance for a time.

    i guess she should have known better.
    So she screwed up in picking a mate, and then screwed up in having more kids than she could afford, and then screwed up in picking the wrong religion, and then rushed into a divorce with no plan on how she was going to care for her kids?

    Yeah. She should have known better. If she had gotten to know the dude before rushing into a marriage, she wouldn't have been in that situation. If she had limited the quantity of her offspring to a more manageable number, she wouldn't have been in that situation. If she had figured out a plan for how to take care of her children before getting a divorce, she wouldn't have been in that situation.

    Seems to me she just wasn't ready to handle the responsibility of parenthood.

    So you infer I am an "ignorant ass" because you need a definition of "nutrition?" Interesting.

    Maybe to someone who does not understand blanket generalizations of poor people don't cut it.

    That's great, and a far cry from the post I responded to. Here let me refresh your memory...

    "185 days without lunch sounds like child abuse to me. Where's the state's division of youth in this and why aren't these kids being taken away from their parents and being put in homes where they can get 3 meals a day again?" - Ockham Post #101

    No place do you mention anything about anyone abusing the system etc.

    I don't know the answer, but I do know the blanket statements you made that I addressed are incorrect.

    Throwing out the baby with the bath water as you have suggested is not an answer.

    you're so right. that would be the reason she raised 5 contributing, successful children, she wasn't ready to handle responsibility.

    thanks for your input, pissant.

    That's not really fair to liblady though.

    She and her bothers and sisters did not choose their lot as children.
    That was the hand they were dealt.

    Hind sight is always 20/20 but not everyone can have excellent predictive skills in what their mate will turn out to be.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    While he could express it a bit more diplomatically, Panache is right though. In a just society, we all accept responsibility for the choices we make and accept the consequences for the choices we make. There is no better system in place to provide incentive for making good choices.

    Yes, if they are in a position to do so, most moral people will offer a helping hand to those who need it. And sooner or later all of us need a helping hand in some way or another. Certainly where children are concerned, we must give priority to these most defenseless in our society, but that should NEVER include enabling or encouraging irresponsibility or bad choices in their parents.

    The minute you FORCE people to assume the responsibility and consequences for the stupid choices others make, you make the responsible in society subservient to the irresponsible. And that never turns out well.

    Well, if she had raised 5 contributing, successful children, that would indicate that she could handle the responsibility. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to. Part of raising children is providing them with things like food. Since she wasn't able to, us taxpayers were forced to do so.

    thanks for your input, pissant.
    You're welcome.

    I understand that but children do not have the power to choose how they are brought up.
    They have no choice of who their parents are.

    If I had things my way, I would horse whip ****ty parents with no remorse.

    I didn't suggest it was her fault or the fault of her siblings. Her mom and dad are to blame. They produced far too many offspring before they were ready to produce any.

    Hind sight is always 20/20 but not everyone can have excellent predictive skills in what their mate will turn out to be.
    People should take as long as they need to know who they are marrying before they do so. Certainly they should figure out that someone is a no-good alcoholic abuser-type before having five kids with him.
