EAGAN, MN (ANS) -- According to the Casey Journalism Center on Children, 13 million American children live in families with incomes below federal poverty levels.

As a result of the economic crisis, hundreds of thousands of families have lost their homes. Consequently, the numbers of homeless parents and children will eventually rise, and milestone events like birthday gift giving will fall by the wayside.

Gotta teach birth control/family planning in elementary school...more relevant than reading/counting, which most of these parents clearly didn't learn either

But Darwinian selection is often healthy (and inevitable) for society...the apple doesn't fall that far from the tree...and most taxpayers hate paying for mistakes of others who exercised their freedom but want others to pay for their mistakes....sniff, sniff....

And yet some "Christians" followed the example of Jesus and spent millions of dollars to make gay marriage illegal. At least poor kids are not held hostage at lesbian weddings. [/joking]

Same reason: GREED, GREED, GREED AND GREED.
The things are same in USA or BRAZIL.
Americans or Brazil's problems are same.
