    What's your opinion, is this a good idea?
    Fire arms registrations and the firearms confiscations, then cameras on streets to monitor you, you can't say anything negative about any minority group or face fines and or jail time, people snooping through your garbage to see if you are recycling, and now authorities coming into your home to see if it is" safe for children". I guess that when you are a subject instead of a citizen these kinds of thing is to be expected.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Nothing worse for a child living in a healthy home than for it to be kidnapped by the government and put into foster "care".

    It never fails to amuse at how some will rush to judgement on a misdirection of the facts. This storm in a teacup is based on a recommended discussion point from a committee of health clinicians regarding improving the proactive care offered by other clinicians whilst making home visits. A high proportion of accidents happen in the home, and a high number of those accidents happen to children. To turn the raising of awareness of visiting healthcare providers to a health education opportunity, or even the provision of safety equipment, into the kidnapping of children, would be risible were it not a sad reflection of the partisan lunacy of present-day politics.

    Considering how the UK is going off the deep end, one has to wonder. Government officials, government employees or who ever else being allowed to enter a home without a warrant or uncoerced permission of the resident is never a good thing.

    we also allow religious people to have children. that is more of a problem than the ones you mention. in my eyes. that is legalized brain washing. do you think that should be allowed to continue? do you think that is fair to a child to be brought up with tainted truths?

    Yeah.... That is probably what caused two impoverished people to have unprotected sex. Right before his "grand goodbye", the girl looks at him and says, "are you ready to get food stamps, welfare and medicaid?" He replies, "i was gonna pull out but you had me convinced at food stamps."

    After their done, she says, "psyche, you don't get anything, and you have to move out ASAP."

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I realise it might be a difficult concept, but in the UK, doctors and nurses provide home visits, (no extra charge) and those are the "government employees" under discussion. In point of fact, they're not government at all. The nurses are generally employed by the doctors, and the doctors are independent contractors, self-employed.

    Can you say no without any consequences if they show up to do a safety inspection?
