And no, I don't find it odd that I don't blame the dads in this particular instance, because the dad's are not getting welfare for these kids. it is therefore irrelevant to the discussion at hand. (it is, however, a sad commentary on the status of some cultures that there are lowlife men running around producing kids with numerous women with no intention of ever providing any support for them)
agreed, I just happen to think that blindly throwing money at them is not the best we can do. all it does is perpetuate the status quoWhile we might debate how best to help, we should agree to help as best we can.
