I agree with the comments about having another kid. Seems like 5 would be more than enough. But there are issues in determining the right to have a child. The real issue in population growth is actually immigration from Mexico. The 2010 US Population Anlysis shows that carrying capacity is only being exceeded because of immigration. White America's birth rates are well below the American death rates, which mirrors most of Western Europe's population decline. The only difference is the overwhelming immigraton totals that are affecting every aspect of our society. The lack of ability for schools to supply kids is directly related, as are academic results.

I agree! And it will continue to get worse unless immigration is slowed down/stopped.

Ya'll are a screwed up bunch of folks. There are a lot of good kids at the high school you just do not hear about them as often. Go to a play put on by the theater group, support English Expo, encourage the French Club, take the time to go to the science fair or support MESA. If this is not your thing support Mission Carlsbad and visit the teams of young people repairing houses in the summer heat. Hate is all you folks seem to know. There are good parents and bad parents both single and married. Some of the best parents I know are single parents and some of the worst are well to do Elks or country club members. If you are so worried about the future of our country GET INVOLVED at the schools. For gods sake all ya'll seem to do is turn everything into us against them. Whites against Hispanics, poor against rich, single against married. You are the problem, if you can't see that then yes this country is going to hell in a handbasket.

Then ask the catholic church to buy your school supplies.While you are at it, ask them to feed your herd.

the guy who keeps getting her pregnant should be on birth control?

Why on earth would you get pregnant again if you clearly cannot afford the children you have now without government assistance? I don't understand this at all and think anyone on assistance should be forced to use birth control until they get off assistance. It is child abuse in my opinion to keep having children you cannot feed.

is your business, so why is it the business of anyone outside your religion to enable you and your family to keep having more children, by helping to support them?

I don't think people hate you so much as they see you as trying to freeload without taking responsibility for your own actions, and your choice of religion is your own action and your responsibility.

I expect you think your religion is the only true one and that you have the right to castigate anyone who disagrees with you. Take a number. And if your husband insists on making you have more kids, then look for help at the battered women's shelter to get your tubes tied.

It doesn't matter WHO gets on birth control! They need to stop reproducing! AND I do not believe that GOD wants them to keep having children. What a stupid defense to a very preventable problem. GOD wants you to care for the family you have and I do not want to feed your children so STOP ALREADY PLEASE!

what you need is some scissors, not for the kids supplies for school, but for you to cut you husbands nuts off.

Well, close your legs and quit having kids. Learn how to eat and live on a budget. Its not hard to find a job here, everyone is hiring. I think you just want welfare, so you and your lazy ass husband can stay home and continue to make babies.

I have twins, so my cost is doubled. Imagine my surprise when I figured out that I've already spent close to $400 this mo for supplies, lunches, activity & field trip fees. Now, they bring home packets for pictures next wk. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying. I do have a question tho......why do I pay activity fees for a class, yet I've still had to buy all the supplies needed for the "activities" they're doing in that class? Where did the activity fee go?
