Actually, Bush is an upper. Obama is not. Don't take it up with me though. There are much better masters in the discussion of class here than me.

Thread is all yours boys.

No, there isn't. He didn't even bastardize Swift in an interesting fashion.

So, you are a female, come from a working class family, and have three kids out of wedlock during your undergrad. Odds you're getting into a good law school and if you get in, you'll be one of the top performers? Or med school? Oh wait! People put off having kids until they get a few important life events completed, for the most part. Imagine, that we should be so "right wing" as to facilitate people making better choices, through the generosity of society!

Do you really think everyone has the same values are you? Not everyone cares about careers as unfortunate as that is. For a society like ours to function I think it is imperative that their is failure. If everyone was a lawyer, doctor, or educated person who would work at GM, Ford, Chrysler? Oh wait. Oops.

I just wish things could go down they way you propose. Government is just to inefficient and I think it will remain like this for a long time.

Reason to have kids? Ask Latricia Ryan, single stay-at-home mother of ten: http://www.mlive.com/flintjournal/in...ryan_of_1.html I think the generous welfare benefits that this government gives to the lazy to sit and pump out kids may be one. Edit: I think people who continue to pump out children they can't afford, while continuously asking for tax payer handouts, should be sterilized. Furthermore, to be eligible for government handouts (food stamps, medicaid -- both of which _I_HATE) you should be required to hold a full-time job. There's this woman I used to work with that had five kids, single. All from different Dads. She started when she was 14 and just never got the hint. Makes me sick... I like seeing large families... but you should be able to afford them. These people in the ghetto (though now with the foreclosures they're putting section 8 peoples into neighborhoods which don't want them -- bringing crime to communities) pumping out kids, never working a day in their lives... should be put down for the good of the country.

pretty much identical story - but I was 35. I really didn't think I've ever have kids, until I was early thirties.
