In the 7 years we did fostercare I saw exactly ONE case in which a child was taken from a home because the parent was truely UNABLE to care for him. (dad was in prison and mom had an IQ of 63, couldn't even take care of herself)



    same here. I have absolutely no problem with helping someone who is down on their luck, through no fault of their own, get back on their feet.
    But I have seen too many families where living off the govt is a way of life passed down from generation to generation.
    yes, this is the cycle which must be broken
    that is THE problem
    this matter of inadequate nourishment is but a symptom of that larger problem

    we have to have a license to drive
    we need a license to fish for heaven's sake
    there is no reason we should not also impose a license to have children
    and the requirement would be simple; prove that you are capable of raising and supporting a child
    too many could not pass that simple test today ... yet they are still giving birth (or donating seman)
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    I don't know what the answer is to so many unwed mothers having several kids with different fathers for example. However, it seems they receive so many entitlements that they have no reason to change or even worry about birth control. I don't want to punish the kids, but doesn't it seem we are doing something wrong?

    let's solve that problem

    in the meantime, let's also solve the very real problem that their are hungry children in school who are not getting proper nourishment. why are you so opposed to feeding hungry students born into poverty?
    Please tell me where these hungry children are so they can be taken care of.
    Maybe the parents aren't receiving the correct amount of food stamps. I don't know why any kid would be going hungry, so we really should figure out the reason.

    please explain for those of us unfamiliar with this, exactly how it works


    no, when the matter of childrens' welfare is brought up, those on your side dodge that topic and try to make it something else again

    passed the house and senate.

    This is the final version
    It's not about feeding hungry kids. It's about growing government and entitlements.

    You're not going to change the minds of people who LIKE eating unhealthy unless you somehow FORCE them to eat healthy which, of course, is completely anti-freedom. Surely that's not what you're implying....?
