You are making blanket accusations about not only the people in this article, but everyone in this country who wasn't born with a silver spoon in their mouth. You don't know these people or anything more about this situation than what is printed in this article.<quoted text>
why are have nots have nots? because they get faced in the car to the point of unconsciousness with their two year old kid crying hysterically! i would say that they have nots in this story are the 2 year old and the baby in intensive care. they have not a parent who cares.
i don't care what your troubles are, there are plenty of people who have come from nothing to be very successful. they did it by accepting responsibility for what they become - not blaming others and then getting faced!
Beyond that, these people aren't blaming anyone for their situation. You are ASSuming they are. They could be taking legally prescribed medication that caused this for all we know.
I am not saying that these parents are not at fault and they did break the law. I'm just tired of people like you who lump a whole group of good people with good intentions who may be down on their luck into the same group as those who pilfer society. So Liberals care about their fellow citizens. So what? We're doing what all you Christians aren't doing. Aren't you tired of seeing church members driving around in Lincolns and Mercedes, wearing gold jewelry and $3000 suits, while their fellow men and women live on the street and go to bed hungry? How about all the children in the country that don't have health coverage by no fault of their own? Should they just accept responsibility for their parents' actions and deal with it? What about the people who lose everything - i.e. the California wildfires and the cyclone in Bangladesh? How about the people who still have no where to go after Hurricane Katrina?
I don't see too many of the "haves" of this country stepping up to help these people, but damned if the Liberals do!
