    If anyone should have their benefits reduced, it isn't the childfree.
    Seeing that you don't know a damn thing about raising kids, you wouldn't know that all those credits don't add up to **** in the overall expense picture of raising children.

    as I stated at the beginning, all other things being held equal, parents have given more of themselves to others and they have benefited society more than those who are not. Raising a child is a socially positive act. That's all .
    And as soon as you start find something besides your own self-absorbed need to believe that, I'll start caring.

    you've got a real issue with projection, smoke.

    But that's okay. I think it's pretty obvious where you are ending this thread. Though I am sad to see you do that to yourself.

    What am I doing to myself again, out of curiosity?

    I don't feel any different than when the thread began, to tell you the truth. But since you seem to believe you know my psyche better than I do, please do enlighten me.

    You have, through your desire to push a point, embarrassed yourself. You are smarter than the things you have said in this thread. I have seen you wiser, more exacting, better capable of sifting evidence than this.

    It's called linear logic, not hypocrisy. You can clear it all up yourself by realizing that there is no sequence of logic that begins with the earth being overpopulated and ends with killing myself.
