    It was supposed to be force people to take medication**.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    1) one is imposing on an innocent person

    2) the second is punishment to stop someone from engaging in anti-societal behavior that imposes massive costs on others

    you seem to think that people on the dole have an unlimited right to have as many children as they desire and therefore force the rest of us to pay for all those children (or I should say, force those of us who are already paying the taxes to pay even more)

    Oh to be (insert your age here) and have no clue what is going on in this thread again. (Cough Cough, I'm not 18, Cough cough) (Cough Cough, I graduated and worked for a long time and then went to school, Couch Cough) (Cough Cough, you are now trying to direct the conversation towards me to avoid your hypocrisy, Cough Cough)

    OW! My throat hurts.

    I don't see any hypocrisy in turtledude's posts
    But what I do see is... you having a flawed view and you trying to point out a hypocrisy that doesn't exist.

    No...I just think letting them have children then setting them on their own isn't a good thing. There are costs for everything. There's a reason we have such crime rates and have such a chunk of our population locked into prison. There's a huge population of Americans who have basically given up.

    You'll end up spending a lot more in the long run...feeding them, clothing them, providing them medical care, because there will be more people in prison with 3rd grade educations and no future.
