Gone are the days of shame for having children out of wedlock, taking responsibility, getting married, being gainfully employed, getting your housing situation ready and then having children. How passe! Instead, we have ushered in an era where "anything goes" is celebrated. Have a kid, then get married. Or don't get married. What difference could it possibly make?
The facts could not be more painfully clear what lies ahead for these 15 children of this selfishly entitled woman is more likely than not a continuation of the the same. Having children out of wedlock, by multiple partners and expecting "someone else to pay for them" is now the norm rather than the exception. And with each passing generation, it gets progressively worse.
This sense of entitlement could only have been born out of the tragically misguided intentions of the "War on Poverty" enacted by President Lyndon B. Johnson administration. The unintended casualties of the "War on Poverty" include the nuclear family, fatherhood, stay at home moms (who actually stay at home for the children, not a check), marriage, shame, tradition, judgment, responsibility, modesty, work ethic, ambition, goals, career planning, self-determination, independence, educational attainment, pride, joy and self-worth. The very underpinnings of the American Dream -- the notion that any child can become anything in this nation that the child has the ability, talent, work ethic and desire to work hard to obtain, has been tossed aside for the shackles and hopelessness of a dead-end government check only obtained by "gaming the system."
Looking into the faces of those children is tragic. No shoes, no food, no home, a mother more concerned with playing "welfare roulette" than being a mother. From the War on Poverty to the Entitlement Generation in one short step. Good going, liberals. So much damage done in so little time. Ironically, it is the one thing the bureaucracy (created by and in for the dissemination of all things liberal) has been very efficient at -- destruction. Of the family, capitalism, the educational system, the American Dream, decency, the culture, take your pick.
