MsB...you hit a nerve...I know this way off topic...but having the gov't control how many kids people have...I actually think it's a great idea if it could be done.
I know many may disagree...but I, like many I'm sure, am tired of my taxes going to pay for people who can't afford kids, are irresposible, immature, but they feel "entitled"... yet continue to have them because the gov't will foot the bill, on the taxpayers' backs. How many of these people have gold teeth, tattoos, smoke cigarettes, do drugs, have a $400 cell phone, drive a nice car, have cable tv, but dont work, cant afford (so they claim) health insurance or pay rent on their own yet continue to have kids out of wedlock that they cant afford. Millions I tell you. I can understand a mistake...ONE...but after that, you should be on your own as far as I'm concerned. Responsible people shouldn't have to pay for the irresponsible people with a sense of entitlement. It's as though they are being rewarded for their behavior...and that's exactly their thinking.
Rural people may not see this but in the larger cities its a major epidemic that is crippling this country financially.
There's my rant...
