Zip up the hootchie
When looking at all that harms America, crime, lack of educated kids, over-crowded prisons, moral decay...., when faced with the varied "issues" bantered about in blogs, discussion groups , political campaigns and editorials, I've come to a singular cause for the preponderance of the problems. Bad parenting.
You can go down the list and it keeps coming down to this most important of human responsibilities. Crime? Most criminals lacked a father or mother figure, or good moral guidance in their formative years. Bad parenting. Education? We can slam the teachers and schools systems all we want, but if most parents would be involved in but a cursory way in their kid's education and growth then most would not fail and drop out with the frequency that they do. Bad Parenting. The falling apart of the traditional family? Maybe bad parenting is not solely responsible or even applicable; as the need for 2-income families and the in-your-face media culture has left us handcuffed with how to curb the bad influence in our kid's lives. But to deny that we let kids get away with murder is to be naive. I got my ass whupped a few times in my youth, and for good reason. It hurt so bad that I NEVER did that offending crap again. Now corporal punishment is akin to getting your ass sued. We've let the f*****g lawyers take over our moral compass guidelines. Bad parenting. The obscene welfare system and institutional poverty in America? Where do I start with that! Why do we subsidize people on welfare keep having kids? Why do we let kids have kids? Why don't we set a standard acceptable to force (yes dammit, force) citizens to think loud and clear about the pitfalls and responsibility of parenting?.... which brings me to the point of my post.
Why to we spay and neuter our pets? Is it because we don't respect their freedoms? is it because we are evil? No. It is because we feel that if we let the little heathens bang away to their loin's content we would be awash in stray hell, right? I don't see the pro-life crowd defending the animal as holy life. I don't see P.E.T.A or the ACLU filing lawsuits on behalf of those poor animals being dis-enfranchised by loosing their rights to procreate as nature would have them do. Nope. We spay their asses because we don't want to care for the pets that are not owned by responsible persons or entities. Someone tell me why the hell we can't spay and neuter people that are too stupid, unable, irresponsible or otherwise unwilling to be a good and responsible parent. We demand kids to take a permit test, driver education classes and driver's test before we allow them to drive a car. What about a test and a pass/fail grading system to decide whether someone is up to the task of taking care of their own offspring? I have to pay huge sums of cash to pay for an addition to a house. Why does the government not demand a huge amount of cash and permit fees for the privililedge of being a parent? The city demands a permit to ensure the safety of the building and its long term structural soundness,.. why the hell does it not care for the safety and long term care of its infant citizens? Why should I have to contribute to the welfare "lock box" because some irresponsible moron could not control his tube steak and some stupid female could not contain her hootch's cry for some girth? Why should I have to contribute to the care of a baby born to a mother already on welfare, or one who is already a mother 3 times over and still living on the dole? Why should I have to do this? Wy should any of us have to do this?
I have no problem de-balling rapists. None. You rape a woman you should have your dick stuck in a pickle jar and your balls given to the nearest SPCA as dessert for the Rottweilers. No quarter whatsoever. You force yourself into a woman, you loose little Richard. Finito. Woman? You keep popping out babies that fall under my financial burden and presto, you loose your ability to pop 'em out. Call me totalitarian, call it a slippery slope to other big brother intrusion, call is the only thing in which I agree with the Chinese Communist government,... I really don't care. And this coming from a die-hard libertarian of all things. I really believe that idiot-minded humans, or maybe ignorant ones, who have no concept of the sacred and moral responsibility to care for their children should not be allowed to participate in such llife-long blessing and holy task.
As to the picture of the chastity belt?... I could have just as easily put one of a male. My posting is as applicable to both men and woman. But being a straight man, I can't really see a meat-hook picture on one of my postings,... so the hootch wins again.
Bring on the missiles,....
