Hell ja! Family is overrated as ****.

Is the gov going to raise them
It would certainly help with the decline in military enlistment.

Who pays for that
The same people paying for welfare right now?

It'd be way more expensive if you want to generate a good upbringing

Foster kids right now overwhelmingly end up back in poverty

And it sounds unbelievably **** for a mother to have her child stripped from her when Daddy loses his job

Which brings us back to square one.

I'm for a lot of programs to end the cycle of poverty

But again these are all more expensive than Welfare

The social safety net is the bare minimum so we don't look like a 3rd world country

"I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," Trump told Reuters in an interview. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier."

No matter your opinion on Trump, the bolded is hilariously dumb. Unless Reuters took snippets from a reincarnation debate out of context.

Pretty sure Trump got a boner from his specch in front of the NRA today.

Pretty sure a bunch of NRA members also got boners.

All must go to gulag

The super-wealthy should have their wealth expropriated with force and dealt with as criminals if they resist. Wealth isn't generated by the wealthy, it's generated by the blood, sweat, tears, pain and debt of billions of people who will never be close to becoming wealthy. Wealth is literally violence.

I'm certain she'd end up traumatized and/or depressed. That would make it even harder to find work, or even apply for it. Sounds expensive and counterproductive.

Anyway, in Norway, you don't receive unemployment benefits unless you're a job-seeker. The Labour and Welfare Administration requires you to actively look for jobs and be willing to accept just about any kind of work, practically anywhere in the country. It's practically impossible to live comfortably off of unemployment benefits, even in Norway. Most people who have to aren't very satisfied about it - this also goes for countries that provide "generous benefits".

"So where are all of these able-bodied lazy adults who are luxuriating off of their benefits? They are a fabrication."

I probably agree with their ideas in those articles, but those aren't very reliable sources.

Didn't catch this edit. You're strawmanning the scenario, we were discussing the event of people abusing the system, not every single parent who uses government assistance.
