We hide our parents assets so that "the state" can take care of them free in old people's homes . . . use unemployment compensation as a paid vacation . . . use food stamps to gamble with . . . give up our kids so that family members can be paid by their state's foster family system . . . the list of abuses in our good-intentioned helping hand programs has become a way of life. The political right is sick of it. The political left thinks we're baby killers.
Eventually, we'll get it. I hope it's soon enough.
