As long as anyone can walk out of a hospital with a baby, these numbers will continue to rise. Folks, we need to have laws regulating who can have children or not. A good start would be to issue parenting licenses to qualified people. Without this license you can not keep your baby and it goes up for adoption to licensed parents who may not be able to get pregnant. This would be a quick, easy and long term solution to solve the economic crisis.
WRONG! THe problem is the demonizing of the poor by the elitist rich who are the real crooks, criminals, and are UnAmerican. Poor people come here to escape oppression and to live free. The elite socialists are using every tool they have to make people live in poverty so it keeps them and their select few in government, in positions of power, and to keep the masses under their control. I have news for everyone, we are ONE nation under GOD. We need to get people off of welfare, in Church and school to relearn the fundamentals that this country was founded on, and then provide jobs so that people can work a 40hr day and buy a reasonably priced house and enjoy thier lives and families. The money is in the hands of a few and they're imposing their will on us. Follow the money and you'll find the creeps. They are taking away our rights, invading our country and our lives. They own us now, we are their slaves. They sit back and make a fortune off of us and use our children to fight their wars and then when WE the real Americans need them they've truned their backs on us. I've worked all over the mental health field. They're running a business as they've said exploiting the poor. Look at the concentration camps all over Long Island. Look at the poverty. Who benefitting?? We're all barely getting by and we're working our whole lives. THen the greedy pricks take what we've worked for and give it away to propogate more business. We are bodies not valued Americans. Our country has sold us out. We are being used and by evil people. The majority are atheists or just money hungry greedy people who care about no one but themselves. We're being played and are having the wool pulled over our eyes. They use the media as propaganda to disguise and distract us. People need to wake up, get back in the CHurch and receive the Sacraments. We need to stand together and boycott the pharmaceutical industry to get their death grip off of us and stop trying to control us. THey have all the money and have bought out our government. They think we are their guinea pigs and subjects.
We are giving away our freedom and country and have fallen from the inside. This was a Judeo-Christian counry, but now the Christians have been deluded and have gone astray leaving the Devil to run rampant and make us His servants. Return to the One Holy Apostolic Catholic Church, receive the Holy Sacraments, pray without ceasing, and be the salt of the Earth as we are called to be. God saved us, Jesus enlightens us, and the Holy spirit is my light. I am not afraid!

Pressure Grows on Obama Over Pakistan
In a speech on his military legacy, Bush offered a defense of the doctrine, which calls for eliminating safe havens for terrorists and says America needn’t wait for threats to fully materialize before striking. The doctrine was used to justify the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Now there’s growing pressure to move more forcefully in the lawless tribal regions of Pakistan, where terrorists are dug in. The U.S. already has made significant use of drones to launch attacks there.
In a speech Tuesday to cadets at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., Bush suggested the U.S. should be able to protect its troops in Afghanistan from attacks emanating from Pakistan.
While Pakistan is “working to enforce the law and fight terror in the border areas,” Bush added,“we have made it clear to Pakistan and to all our partners that we will do what is necessary to protect American troops and the American people.”
With little over a month left in office, it’s unlikely Bush will do much more to change the equation along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. But Bush’s comments reflect the growing pressure on President-elect Barack Obama to make good on his promises to step up the fight there.

I was shocked to learn that in California, Medicaid pays for invitro. That makes absolutely no sense.

A revolution was fought in this country for less than the crap we taxpayers are subjected to today.

Hello! They do it here too.

People that can't feed themselves shouldn't have children. Some people think it's a mothers right to have children at the expense of the taxpayers. How sick is that?!

I can't tell you the amount of parents that just have no business having children. And I just don't mean financial. I've met some of the financially strapped parents that are an example of what parents should be. And then there are the ones that need their reproductive organs ripped out....

Which is disgusting. I want to be able to stand on line at the supermarket and know who to look down on. No joke. I'd like them to have to feel the shame of living off the back of someone else. And maybe even have to get to the back of the line if someone who isn't paying with fake dollars wants to go ahead of them. They should be treated like the dirt that they are.

It's time this country starts handing out birth control like it's candy. Too many people that can't feed themselves are procreating.

That and this country needs to overturn that all babies born in this country become automatic citizens.

Clinton was on his way to balancing the budget, that moron Bush couldn't balance a scale to get a fix. You should get out of your in laws basement and go hunting with Cheaney.
