Well, there's the EIC for one. Then there's state governments giving children of illegal aliens attending college reductions in the cost of tuition.
But that's all besides the point. No matter what the birth rate is, there are still people that shouldn't have children, which was the point of TODAY's discussion.
Kinda' like Snoop's kid at USC?

Hummmm....reading comprehension doesn't seem to be your strong suit either. Go back and read what you're commenting again. What does it say? I'll be back when you start posting BS and hate again...just to keep things honest with the FACTS!
Ciao!
I don't post hate. Unlike you.
However I don't appreciate you attacking
posters that I like.

Don't worry yourself about my reading comprehension.

Now I know LIEberals are going to say: "If you pay people a living wage and get people off welfare, it's GOOD for the country!"

Well, of course, that is NONSENSE. It would only lead to increased prices! Increased prices are great but only if labor costs stagnate or drop. Look how well the Chinese are doing. Or any corporation that uses prison labor. You southern folk might recall how low labor costs were before the War Of Northern Aggression! After the initial expense of purchase of a *servant*, breeding cost made them even more cost-effective! But, THAT is a story for another day.

Remember- if your neighbor makes less money, it's good for EVERYBODY! Just you never mind that he has a neighbor too.

I don't post hate unless it is posted to me first. See, the thing is...Facts seem to piss off people that don't have a clue what they are talking about. What I post are FACTS, complete with qualifiers. When I'm wrong about something I admit it and thank the other person for supplying me with correct information. That also seems to drive other posters crazy.

Oh... you have double the education I do? How would you know that? You don't post hate? What do you think your post is? Doesn't sound like a love letter to me! Maybe you shouldn't interject yourself into conversations that have nothing to do with you.

Do you seriously think I care about what you think? Why do you feel the need to defend other posters? Are they too stupid to think and speak for themselves?(That's a rhetorical question.)

Now, do you have anything germane to the subject of this thread you wish to comment on? If not....

Ciao

P.S. They tried the one child per family in China...it didn't work out well.

My question is...WHO DECIDES who can have children and who can't?

What the hell does the EARNED INCOME CREDIT have to do with anything? School tuition is decided state by state. Don't like it? Tell your congressman! Before you go making a fool out of yourself, perhaps you'd better understand the LAW..

Basic Facts about In-State Tuition for
Undocumented Immigrant Students

Twelve states currently have laws permitting certain undocumented students who have attended and graduated from their primary and secondary schools to pay the same tuition as their classmates at public institutions of higher education. The states are California, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and Washington. In addition, Rhode Islandís Board of Governors for Higher Education voted unanimously to provide access to in-state tuition at the stateís public colleges and universities to certain students, regardless of their immigration status, beginning in 2012....THERE'S MORE! EDUCATE YOURSELF!

I haven't seen the DNA reports, so I really couldn't say for sure - Snoop does like his Jamaican, don't cha' know mon.

His kid, Cordell "Spanky" Broadus, is a borderline football talent; however, he did get a full football scholarship at UCLA (sorry I was in error by stating USC previously).

I think people should only have children they can afford.
I find it ridiculous that some will have 8 kids and expect welfare to cover the cost .... only in America.
