This thread makes no sense. We're discussing two problems - the homeless, and Ebola. They're both worthy topics of discussion, concern, and compassion- but they don't really "go together."

Sort of like saying, "Let's discuss the dangers of ten year olds driving and texting." I mean, it COULD happen and if it did, it would be dangerous - but it's just not a likely combination of factors.

It also opens a door. A door to - I don't like they way you raise your children and you shouldn;t be allowed to have any. Personally I can't stand the idea of so many children in this country being raised to hate. I might be tempted to stop those people from having children. But its not the way to go.

You sound like a very fearful person.
You say you don't want people to raise children to hate, but from your earlier post it is obvious you just don't want people to bring up their children with conservative values. You have been led to believe by your liberal "leaders" that the opposition hates you. We only feel sorry for you. We don't hate you. We just wish you would become better educated.

OTOH, it is obvious you have been raised to hate people you disagree with. Ironic, isn't it?

How is discussing Patient Zero and means of transmission (and how they initially got infected) not on topic?

Personally I'm for zero population growth until we get back down to about half of where we are now worldwide but I don't see anyone giving up the joys of parenthood regardless of where they live, how poor or wealthy. Back in the 60s there was a movement for just 2 kids, replace yourself. I never hear of anyone considering that when thinking about having more kids. Frankly I rarely discussions that go beyond 'we want more' or 'we don't want more'. Sometimes its money but not that often. Eventually the planet will get to where China is. Its sort of inevitable.


Meanwhile the poor have just as much a right to parenthood as anyone else.
First of all, your comments don't sound that far off from fascist or communist viewpoints. Yet liberals don't see that a nanny state type of government which they dream of eventually leads to one of those two outcomes.

As to the idea the poor have the same rights to reproduction, on the surface you are correct. However in our society, there is too much willingness to pay for such irresponsibility. We need disincentives to irresponsible reproduction, period. Until we get to that point as a society, human nature will take advantage of bleeding hearts.
