    You know we don't actually have orphanages in the US anymore, right?

    Is your plan what you would want for a child of your own blood?
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    We don't? I know about foster homes but what happens in between foster homes.

    No, my plan is for abandoned babies or children. I think it's imperative that we give kids a set of marketable skills so they don't end up like pajama boy or in a street gang or in prison.

    What does it say about our society that a quarter of our children are in poverty and that nearly half of them are low-income? I think it says we don't give a shit about poor kids once they take their first breath. We are, as prp says, like a third world country in many ways. Here is something to read that explains it more succinctly than I can. But how do you not see the poverty and misery all around you? Or do you just not recognize it for what it is?
    And then there are always certain herbs to induce a miscarriage that women have used for centuries to at least have some modicum of a chance for control over what happens to their own body.

    Besides, abortion aint a picnic on your body either. No woman I know wants to have a monthly abortion done, just for kicks, coz it is so consequence free. If that does not work as a deterrent, legislation is hardly going to matter. And as you said - it'll only increase the back alley unsafe procedures that will cost even more lives and cause even more suffering.

    What does it say about are society that a quarter of out children are in poverty and nearly half of them are in low-income? It says that our current policies are not working. It says that we need to create jobs and lower taxes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trickle-down_economics

    I do not see poverty and misery all around me. I see people who use my Dad's 1% tax money so they can sit on their asses and not do anything with their lives'. Let me ask you a question. Where did out current president come from? Do you know? His background was terrible, and yet he managed to become the first black leader of this country. I may not like him but i respect what he overcame to get to where he is. (The fact that hes a minority did help though). Why not give all the other unborn babies the same chance? For me its not about the pregnant woman, its about the baby.

    trickle down economics does not work, people are greedy. it doesn't trickle down, the rich become richer the poor become poorer. I can't believe you're falling into the trap

    I certainly wouldn't. I feel like I'd fuck up my kid psychologically if I forced them to work at such a young age. Maybe once high school hit, but other than that I would want my child to...you know...actually enjoy his/her childhood.

    I thought you ruled out he was an NT.

    Also E5. Again, about as INTJ as INTJ gets.

    No. The rich become richer and the poor become middle class. That's what happens when you create jobs. But you cant create jobs when you're getting taxed out to kazoo. Trickle Down Ecenomics has been done before, and was succesful. See: Reagans presidency
