    Hell, sign me up for that. I'll even have a kid if that's all it takes.

    I want a high-paying white-collar job and a cheap kid to raise. If I find Aladdin's lamp, what should my third wish be?

    Why don't you and your wife open a daycare and charge less than the competition?

    I don't believe for a second that daycare by you STARTS at $20,000 but you could make a small fortune through only charging $15,000.00 and not have to worry about daycare yourself.

    You know, that's a great question. Not sure who is getting them, nor am I sure if the union prepared, school district provided, meals count against what is provided via the SNAP program.

    Think about it. Government provided day care, and year round meals, from infant to H.S. graduation, and beyond. Such a thing should send chills up someones spine. It's not hard to imagine a means test, and proficiency tests administered to "participants" to prove the care has been "earned", and is "warranted".

    It is better for me and better for you that we allow people to send their kids to an affordable daycare allowing their parents to get a good education and a well-paying job then having people who do not work and have to stay home.

    No kidding. If day care costs twenty grand, I'm in the wrong racket. I'll gladly put away my shirt and tie and pick up a Dr. Seuss book and a box of graham crackers.

    You're not paying attention. 1) People don't need to be "allowed" to do anything, because they're not being disallowed from doing anything. 2) It's not any more affordable if it's being subsidized, rather it is continuing to be bought and sold at those high, allegedly unaffordable prices.

    Wrong, its better for everyone including the child to plan for children then just "oops there he is".
    I will have to say, you sound like a very selfish person on this.
