I'm sure you wouldn't just make that up out of thin air, and must have some sociological or economic studies that confirm your theory. I await your evidence.Placing welfare children in a group home run by Nuns and Marine DIs would be much better for the children and cheaper for society.

I can't. This is important.

I suppose it would depend on how the person was earning over $1,000,000 per year. There are a few things that would be worse than intentionally living off welfare. Generally though, I'd consider that worse.

Relationship Between the Welfare State and Crime - June 7, 1995
True, there are not an overbundance of studies relating the two that I could find in a quick search, but go ask any cop where they have the most problems with gangs and jevenile crime, the projects (welfare housing) and welfare areas. Welfare girls are also far more likely to become a teen parent. I have seen this over and over in different towns/cities I have lived in.
As to those who are just poor and not on welfare, either they should apply for assistance or they are simply mismanaging their money. I have absolutely no problem with assistance to working poor families, just the non-working ones. If those children are being neglected because of poor money management, the parents should be counseled on money management and then if the problem continues, then hell yes, take the kids. Illegals in this country don't seem to have as much problem feeding and taking care of their kids as many legal residents do and they make a hell of a lot less.
The bond between parent and child is the strongest that there is, in fact.
Is love important?
Or is the most efficient way of feeding children the only consideration?
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
