I agree! I believe that a majority of the children are born to idiots! Bad gene pool, drug addition, people with no desire to be anything other than what makes up the scum of the earth. And, if you are born into welfare, you will most likely live on welfare the rest of your life. It seems to be a sense of entitlement -- that society owes it to people who have chosen not to go to school when it's right across the street. If the crack-addict-ho mother doesn't care, why should the children.
Occasionally rarely, does a child rise above this. So, the problem perpetuates in multitudes.
Don't get me wrong. Welfare exists for a reason -- to help people get back on their feet, or not fall on their butts when times are hard and unfortunate things happen. But too many people use it as a family planning tool before they can even cover their own asses in this world, forcing society to foot the bill.
Too many TV shows flaunt the ignorant scum of the earth I mentioned, as if is represents a major cross-section of America. So, people around the world who have never been here think Americans are idiots. It's embarrassing to me.
I blame the availability of the welfare system. If people had to be responsible for themselves, I don't think there would be as many stupid people having babies.
I asked a friend of mine from Manchester, England, why there does not seem to be a population problem in England. He said that it is too expensive to raise children these days. He also added, here in the States, a sixteen year old girl can have a baby and the government will set her up with free housing, free medical care, food stamps and child support.
I've met girls who don't want to earn more than $200 per week or they'll "lose their benefits." If they have no education, they will likey only be able to get minimum wage jobs. So, they have figured out that the government offers more than the minimum wage job with the entire public assistance package. So why get up and go to work. Once you sit on your butt for a while, it's hurts to get up. Also, they can drop their kid off with Mom while they go earn unreported income.
Okay. I said it. Now some people may want to kick my butt. But if they do, they are either living in a bubble or benefit from the problem.
