    All of our government is driven by corporations anyway. You can't be President without selling your soul. I'm surprised that don't put on sponsor hats when they win the election.

    Your president wants to give away eleventy gazillion dollars to the poor and stupid. God have mercy on the souls of the hard working. Escaping is futile. You're all fuxored.

    I have not looked into anything with the free degree, but I hope it has some stipulations like garnishing paychecks or tax refunds for people who do not show up to class and maintaining a certain gpa. That way you will only have to pay for people who will take it seriously.

    I think free vasectomies would be a better investment, maybe cut down on guys with 10 baby mommas.

    I think there is an entire generation of people our age that feel the same way and I think a change is coming. I also see this sentiment with our generation in regards to parenting styles as well. We are moving away from the "80's" generation that currently have teenagers and feel that "friending" your kid is a better option than parenting your kid to a "that's not the way I grew up" mentality. The only hitch is whether or not we have the numbers to combat the welfare generation and turn things around. The bright spot is that the welfare generation can't seem to put together enough momentum to gain traction. Case in point is the #blacklivesmatter movement which keeps stepping on it's own dick when it comes to civilized protest and debate.

    We're screwed one way or another. Middle class always gets the squeeze. No one cares about us as long as we don't have just enough rope to sink the economy for the 1%. I think Obama is about to go ape crap in the next two years to define his legacy. Hopefully he'll ust hit it on social issues... That'd be great, but I highly doubt it. Last year on the SOTU only 2 things happened from the like 20 key points and they were both mutually supported by THE parties. I think BBC reported on it. I'll try and dig up the link.

    I think youre right. I think change is coming too. But I think its gunna be a gets worse before it gets better situation.

    I have a small group of friends that I talk to on a regular basis. All of us are set in our careers, with mellow family lives and we just live life day to day.

    I work with a large group of people in my age bracket (+/- about 3 years). Theres like 3 that are not a complete idiot, burden on society, fucking morons. Im talking people with a half dozen kids by as many different partners, makin just a touch over minimum wage. I hear a lot of "Man, Im flat broke. I gotta figure out how Im gunna get gas money till pay day." Or something really similar. Thats usually ON pay day.

    The mind set of these people is beyond my understanding. They have made mistakes, but didnt learn from em and continue to repeat them.

    Simply put, we're being out-bred.

    the burdensome are reproducing at a rate 3 or 4 times those who are not a burden to the system, and, statistically, those offspring are 90% more likely to also end up being burdens as well.

    The answer? we good hardworking people who can take care of themselves need to have more kids to offset the suck.

    And at the same time, we need to do something to limit the encouragement of those who can't afford to care for themselves to not reproduce until they can take care of themselves AND someone else (their kid) without harming the byproduct (the kid) in the process (it's not their fault, afterall). Who ever comes up with that solution should run for office.

    The system is broken and currently encourages welfare moms to have more kids.
    deadbeat dads are even more the problem.

    AIDS wasn't enough to stop the raw dog fucking.
    Imagine what it will take?

    B is onto something. Having six kids 100 years ago was just fine because someone had to work the fields and take the cart into town to drop the harvest off. But having 6 kids today with zero prospects is turning out to be a serious issue. The court systems are to over loaded to hold folks financially responsible and a large amount of "parents" could care less about the fact that they have a grip of kids that go without.

    A lot of kids from "homes" like this dont go without tho. Their parents get their free money (in one form or another) every month in the mail. All is good, no problem. The kids grow up thinkin thats ok, and dont know any better. They, for the most part, dont realize their parents are worthless.

    Its starting to put the trend into a perpetual cycle.

    Hence, why 90% of them end up the same way.

    a teen mom is like 85% more likely to be a 30 year old grandma too.

    We can't change who other people are. They won't listen.

    Maybe a no child tax credit is in order.
