    Default Mad at America

    I know I am going to sound like an ass but I am fairly annoyed. The wife is 5 months pregnant and we just really looked at the expenses. Without complications, if everything goes peachy from conception through delivery medical expenses are estimate to be at least $15,000. Even with insurance that's really going to suck.

    What really annoys me are the people shooting out a new baby every year. People who don't want or take care of the kids properly. Their irresponsible behavior isn't punished, it's paid for by the government.

    I personally know a woman who has 6 kids(+ 2 miscarriages.) She uses meth, drinks, smokes, even had one of her babies while incarcerated. All paid for by the government.

    Did I just become a Republican?

    You tell me. Would you rather not have any quality controlled foods, public roads, medical care, schools, military, police force and the likes? Seeing as how anti-Socialist Republicans are, apparently they love being on their own. At least, you know, until they need to shop at the grocery store and don't want to eat lead filled foods, drive around, go to the doctor, give their children a proper education, be protected from foreign forces or rely on officers when they are victims of a crime. So really, the question is, are you insane and/or retarded? If you said no, you're most likely an independent.

    The right to have kids is one of the most important rights of all.

    In what way do you want to control it?

    There is no more complete form of oppression than taking the right to have kids away from someone.

    My 2 cents:
    What's next? Just stop letting the "vermin" get to the food and the problem solves it's own?
    Living in a state that tries to commit "passive genocide on the poor" is never worth it.
    Money doesn't play into it at all.

    There's this thing called contraception but I nearly forgot that a lot of Americans sees that as something that would put you in hell or something.

    Being poor shouldn't automatically disqualify someone from having children. Being an irresponsible f*ck should.
    Those can go hand in hand if for example you don't use some type of contraceptive while you're living in a crack house.

    I agree with the government giving a helping hand to people who are doing the best they can. Hand outs are another story.
    I really don't think the guy making meth a few miles away from me should have better insurance than I do at no cost.

    Abstinence counts.

    I don't understand.

    Is the problem the crack, or the children?
    Is it the meth, or the insurance?

    The fun thing about those first Bioshock games is, that even if you take out the whole magic stuff, you get something that people actually believe would be describable as good, just and fair.
    That is supposedly "being better off". Actually in the Us there are so many of them that at least at night you better be scared about going outside in a city. Gj. I like my police nice, my streets safe everywhere and all the time, my "I haven't seen a civilian carrying a gun all my life", my medical costs covered since always way of being...
    Have fun in Rapture.
    (Pro-tip: Stuff there will still cost exactly the amount of money you can afford to fork over for it.)

    Being irresponsible is the problem. Doing stupid sh*t and the government paying for it is the problem.

    The government funding the results of irresponsible pregnancy is comparable to paying for an alcoholic's car maintenance.

    You didn't just turn republican. You just became an old man. Next you'll be saying: "In my day...."

    Brilliant smokescreen.

    How responsible is it to make scapegoats out of anecdotes?
