    I have noticed that some of the people I know that have no business having kids or having anymore kids keep doing it, a friend of mine who lives in a house owned by his mother with his girlfriend has 2 kids with her. He has been unemployed for the past 3 years, his mother pays everything she is a nurse so she earns enough to support her grown son, she pays for food, their bills, his cell phone, even when the water heater broke she fixed it. Anyways I talked to my friend this past weekend and his girlfriend is now pregnant with their child, I didn't really know what to say because he has no business having more kids, especially since he has no job and spends alot of time smoking weed.

    Another friend of mine is successful, he was in the Air Force with me and got out after 6 years and now has a job in Houston working for an electricity company and makes around $40-50 K a year, volunteers time to help with charities, goes to Church on Sundays, etc. but he is not interested in having kids right now, he likes being a free agent and doing what he wants. I should not he is 30 years old, but my friend with the 3 kids is 26. I notice a scary trend where the responsible people with a good head on their shoulders are not having kids as much, but the guy who lives with mom and hits the bong everyday has no problem having 4 or 5 kids, does anyone else notice this?

    It's a matter of responsibility and accountability. These two values are becoming increasingly lost in our society, primarily do to the media and the government.

    When you have more idiots having children than good people its a troubling sign, my brother is an ex heroin addict who has been in and out of prison for the past 3 years. He just did a 1 year bid in Wasco in California for domestic violence and a drug charge, he has 2 kids with my ex girlfriend, the kids were taken away by CPS because he beat them, did not feed them for days and one of them almost choked to death on a percosette he left out, he also beat the shit out his girlfriend and a no contact order was in place. Now he has 2 kids out there, what are they going to be like when they grow up? :confused:

    This isn't going to fare well for us in the future, not every child turns out like their parents necessarily but alot of them will because that will be the way they are raised.

    First off... momma is enabling them to be lazy asses. Their very own private nanny state. Who would not want to live somewhere everything is paid for and done for them.

    I agree... they have no business having more children that they cant afford.

    Question... are they getting government assistance too?

    I am sorry for your nieces and nephew... but they are better off without your brother. Hopefully they grow up better then their parents.

    The the best thing for them is that the mother gives them all the boot. Sorry..i know that sounds harsh.. but what they are doing is using the mother.
