Good point, see your logic; however, most children in the system because of child neglect are children of lower income/non working, single mothers who depend on the system as their form of income. Funny thing, never see a healthy woman or man, capable of working that won't, live in government housing, receive food stamps and have at least three children in the system for neglect ever win parent(s) of the year awards.
BTW, working more than 40 hours is a personal neglect that one may feel down the road as a parent when they wake up one day and they don't even know their own children. Providing food, shelter, clothing, helping with educational needs is normally not considered neglect.

So, if you work more than 40 hours a week, that means you neglect your family? So, it would stand to reason that if a person doesn't work at all, then that would mean that they DON'T neglect their family? Strange logic.
Thank you. Perfect post. Someone who can think outside the box!

If you work too much you neglect your family and you are measured by what you own.
If you don't work enough to support your family you neglect them and are measured by what you don't own.

Allen, your comprehension level is a tad low. I said they work 80 hours a week for a house they can't afford. I meant they are living above their means or income and it takes 80 hours to cover the debt they have created to keep up a lifestyle they can't afford. Some of the groups of professionals I named won't always be in this situation because their income will increase because their area of expertise and they probably won't go for want.
I applaud that farming pays your bills, feeds your family and you freely give. I never really appreciated farming until I watched the people here do it and actually do it with joy. Why does it anger you that I have chosen to live among people that do the same thing you do but in another country? A country where people aren't at each others throat over politics, race is rarely discussed and the land is beautiful. Don't be a hater because I decided to take a leap and give my family and myself a tranquil lifestyle without the rat race of the U.S. You act as though I moved to a communist country selling U.S. secrets living in an airport.
Your anger issues consume you and one day could be your downfall.

Melt butter in a small sauce pan, stir in sugar an cinnamon. Pour over apple dumplings. Now pour Mt. Dew over dumplings.

Thank you for the recipe. What you lack in manners you make up for with good recipes.

Allen, do you know much about the tropics? Apples can be grown but they don't hold a light to what we have access to in the U.S. I'm wondering if I can use canned apples? The mango in the tropics is kind of like what apples/peaches are to us in the U.S. The funniest thing about living in the tropics is I don't each fish and I'm not crazy about mangoes, but I'm learning.

Better watch those recipes, got in trouble for that one time. Mikie said can't do that on here remember? BTW, grill the mango with a hot spice and other veggies. Be sure to brush with oil.

Thanks Emlu for the recipe. I'm learning to use passion fruit, and we eat a lot of pineapple cooked on the grill but I never thought about the mango. IF ONLY I could figure out how to make fish not taste like fish.

The seasons here really don't change that much and the farmers around here do a pretty good job growing cabbage, lettuce and root veggies that do better in a colder climate. As you said about the mango using hot sauce and other spices really make a difference. You'd be surprised how nutmeg which I never used much before can change the flavor and coconut milk.

I've got to get you and Waco down here. I'm learning to fish with a net pretty good too. We'd have a great time kicking back and watching the sunset at the end of the day.

There will be few comments from demokrats on your post, except to find some way to tear Franklin down.The post, the sage comments of FRANKLIN, are inviolate, and pure truth.

You make good points that I can't disagree with. I don't think anyone wants to see any capable adult riding on the back of government when work would be available. Of course, the greatest concern that I (and I am sure you do too), have is with children who are hungry and malnurished. This is not an easy area to figure out. What would you propose as a solution to improve their well being? They are the true victims.
