    That is one of the more annoying fallacies. The Hornets wore "I can't breathe" t-shirts last night, and some lady was saying if they want to stand up for that issue, they "have to stand up for all controversial issues". That argument sucks, and it makes no sense at all.
    I would say that the 72% of folks giving birth to out-of-wedlock children are supporting that idea, aided in large part by the "safety net" that declares poor folks to magically become needy households, deserving of public assistance, with the addition of a dependent (or two or three).

    Not only does the "safety net" aid divert tax money away from needed infrastructure improvement and maintenance, those kids without daddies are a very large part of the crime problem - much larger than any police misconduct which seems to warrant the attention of the race hustling, poverty pimps and offers excuses to riot, loot and burn. It is odd that private funds are needed to help those that suffer damage from those riots (and other crime) yet the absence of that "baby daddy" allows for (requires?) use of public funds.

    In reality, most of the money spent on safety net programs goes to people who are not poor.

    Yep, but it does turn a McJob into something close to a middle class lifestyle if one plays their cards right.

    That's not even close to be being true

    Talk is cheap. What are you and your like doing about it? Nothing but sitting on the sidelines feigning concern.
