Who cares what you call this crap. The biggest thing would be to limit it to one year, one kid, and you must show up every day and offer to work, anywhere. Also be drug tested to receive any benefits and no voting while living in the public sty.
You are horrible misinformed. I am middle aged and was a homemaker for 25 years. I like many of my friends are in school to learn a trade. It's two years long. I never used drugs, smoked, and don't even like additives in food, don't drink soda, get the idea. I am also well past the age to have kids. What do you propose for us. P.S. include school work study. In addition, no one should EVER be denied the right to vote.
