Great point. When it happens it will prove even further the MSM is in bed with these crooked lying democrats.

There isn't as much of a crisis now as there was several years back because fewer people actually have jobs. It was a HUGE factor in when I had kids and how many, which is how it should be unless you are willing and able to stay home and take care of as many as you want. I don't understand the whole "nobody wanted to babysit my 6 kids" arguement...DUH.

If your smart you space em out so you got an older one to watch the little ones and then you can bill the state at the same time. They may as well throw in one of those foreclosed homes sitting empty that fannie/freddie now own too free of charge.

Don't know if I've ever seen a thread with so many different posters agreeing on something. She really is a dangerous witch. I've repped more people than I can count on this one.

Might as well take the nanny state to its literal form.

Hey stupid......how about thinking about that before you had five kids. We didn't knock you up and should not have to be involved in raising them, too many other issues in the world to deal with.

It wasn't their fault. Who are you to tell them what to do with their own bodies? You just hate children. You want children to starve.

Racist.

It can be worth it. In the case of divorce with non-support it can be completely worth it. You shouldn't probably have 5 kids in six years, but if you have some spacing, the olders ones will be in school and only 2 or 3 would have to need babysitting.

Parents often rotate work hours, one will work the nightshift and the other works the day shift, or weekends and some nights. Or they have family members that also help.

There are home day cares which are more affordable. Someone will babysit for cash in their own home because they can use the extra money but don't charge an arm and a leg.
