<b>Why are they having children if they can't afford it?</b><br><br>
Of all of the insensitive things - are you insinuating that these parents don't want to love and support their children? Do you think that these parents did not intend to give their children as much support and care as possible? Do you have any idea of the reality of these parents situation? You know, they could have been laid off from a job, or the plant shut down, or some medical tragedy befell their family, yet you insinuate that they are wantonly having kids and then asking for others to pay for them? Economic conditions for a family can change in a very short amount of time. Your statement is wrong on so many levels. If you don't know the situation of the parents, then don't speculate.

Coulda shoulda woulda. You don't know anything about their situation either, so stop your infantile projecting. Don't squeeze em out if you can't afford their expenditures. Sounds pretty cut and dried to me.

Well, well...it's the Return of Smed! <br><br>And you're saying they <i>didn't</i>? It certainly is a possibility that they lost a job/went back to school/medical tragedy happened. But some parents today - usually teenagers - DO have children without considering all the ramifications, financial and otherwise. Some parents DO have kids and go on welfare, or figure the father will pay and don't bother to work until later on - AFTER they get their heads on straight. This is a woman who was bitching that she had a job AND was going to school...so she can't afford Wal-Mart?<br><br>And Brin is right - you are ALSO speculating without knowing all the facts. You may very well be right - or I may be right.
