Sorry, Barb, but…

The social services are necessary.

As is family planning, including the ability for a woman to have abortion.

And don’t give me the shit about “right to life” since a right to life implies that a person’s life is sacred:

a “pro-life” society, certain basic needs would be assured, including a nutritious diet, sanitary water, decent shelter from the elements, a safe environment, and humane medical care. Programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, public housing and food stamps are assertions that satisfying these basic human needs should not be determined by one’s ability to pay. Structural violence in society occurs when people’s basic needs go unfulfilled because they are too poor to purchase goods or services.

On the matter of health, it almost goes without saying that the “pro-life” person would refrain from smoking, oppose government subsidy of domestic tobacco production and sale to overseas markets, encourage physical fitness, and donate blood for transfusions to people whose lives might thereby be saved. Also, insofar as a surplus existed, one might also expect the society to provide relief to needy people in other societies in the form of nonmilitary foreign aid, directly providing goods or teaching developmental skills.

So, don’t come pro-life to me if the right ends at birth. A child shouldn’t be punished for the parents’ mistakes.

As for head start, it was a lot more than just education. It included meals and other things to make sure that the children weren’t disruptive. I add in that children have a right to an education, which they won’t appreciate if they are starving. Perhaps that is why they are disruptive.

The charter schools can be just as corrupt as the public ones, but public schooling is a lot less expensive than housing people in prisons. Although, I know you prefer private schools since they are not run by the government. So, they can cost far more than the public alternative, but you prefer them.

Sorry, Barb, but your policies COST society far more in the long run. It’s pretty obvious that the policies you advocate have bankrupted the US.

So, as I have said before, don’t bother posting here as you only prove you are an ignorant cow who would prefer to live in a world where there was child labour and deep poverty because they deserve to be poor.
