Growing child poverty under Liarbour

Once more the bleeding hearts are whinging about child poverty.
And the Child Poverty Action Group says the problem has worsened under Liarbour.
I am going to blog more on this later, based on some of my weekend experiences.
But there is more to eradicating child poverty than simply throwing money at the problem.
By making single motherhood a lifestyle option, or making unemployment a lifestyle option, it makes child poverty even worse.
Quite often the people who should not be breeding, the dumb and stupid who can least afford kids, tend to be having the most.
And they and their partners expect the rest of us to pick up the tab.
And doesn't it say it all, when you hear ads on their radio stations, like Mai FM , telling these dumbfuck mothers to have milk in the fridge instead of giving their kids fizzy drinks.
What kind of society gives such unfit parents, too stupid to avoid pregnancy, too stupid to raise their kids properly, the option, the lifestyle choice, of having a bucketload of kids instead of working like the rest of us.
Obviously a society with a government that is equally dumb and stupid!
Yet the problem will continue to worsen under present policies. We don't need bleeding hearts, but wise heads, whose hearts might seem made of stone.
Too many children are suffering under the government's welfare policies. Change might seem harsh but if you cannot afford kids, you should not have them. And if there weren't so many sprogs needing taxpayer support, the more poductive elements of New Zealand society, who are struggling under a huge tax burden, caused in part by hving to support other people' offspring, could perhaps afford to breed too.

Well said Fairfacts.

I couldn't possibly agree with you more. Unfortunately we have a media, and many child care organisations that can't understand how to resolve the cause of the problem (welfare, culture of not working and relying on the taxpayer) with the symptom (them not having enough money.

Great post.

Oh yes, poverty is so much worse now than in the times before we had a welfare system. If only we could go back to those halcyon days when women were forced to remain in abusive relationships or have their kids watch them working as prostitutes, and the unemployed could make an honest living as beggars and petty criminals.

Try reading your post again. Your answer to worsening child poverty is to make it even worse, so that the resulting increased child misery discourages the poor from breeding. Why not be honest about that? Let's see National campaign on it - I should think a series of ads promoting the worsening of child poverty to the point where the "dumb and stupid" can no longer breed would strike a real chord with voters...

Like third world aid my suggestion is to get the scalpal out and stop the dumb arse thickos from breeding. Why should I pay if some slut gets up the duff all the time?

Gentlemen (and, hopefully, ladies:) - I've posted this before, on another topic, but re this topic, see items 5, 6 and 7.
Here's how you bring a counrtry to its knees and make it vulnerable to takeover (internally or from outside).

1. Destroy faith in the justice system, police, and rule of law, while co-opting them to your own agenda-driven purposes. Check.

2. Decimate the armed forces and render them unappealing as a career option. Check.

3. Constrain freedom of speech, first by political correctness, then by legislation. Check.

4. Muddy the definition of what it means to belong to the nation by opening the immigration and workforce floodgates, creating a potentially explosive, paranoia-inducing multi-cultural mess. Check.

5. Interfere constantly in normal, capable, intelligent people's lives to the point where you drive them out of the country. Check.

6. Treat the rest of the population like children long enough for them to become like children. Check.

7. Co-opt the public service to your agenda and people it with slavish idiots. Check.

ps FFM: when you have time, could you revisit the tariana Turia blog - I recently added something there that might interest you (and I hope it's not breaking protocol/s to use this blog to tell you that :)

Let's see what psych suggests as a solution. I mean, besides taxpayer funded handouts.

Take the kids off them and give them to deserving childless couple who really want children

Sterilise the females and the males

This will increase the average IQ and reduce the welfare bill

Well I am more socially orientated than the other posters except Milt.
Many of these poor see breeding as a soft meal ticket out of poverty. I think after the first child a solo, druggie, or prostitute should be offerred a couple of grand to be sterilised. There you are I do have a soft heart.

I'm afraid there aren't really any fascist parties for you and Anonymous to vote for in this election, gd.

Clunking Fist: Jesus Christ said the poor will always be with us. So if the son of Almighty God, creator of the universe and knower of all things, puts a solution to poverty in the too-hard basket, I don't think there's much point in me starting to cast about for a solution.

That said, it's not too difficult to see the holes in both the CPAG's approaching of arbitrarily defining a movable target for poverty and throwing good money after bad, and FFM's approach of attempting aversion therapy using children as the mechanism.

Psycho milt

The only problem I have with your approach is that it plain doesn't work. We have spent $Bils on handouts and where has it gotten us?

The old saying that if you took everyones money of them, distributed it evenly amongst everyone and waited for two years, things would be basically back to where they are now. You only have to see the number of people who have won big lottery prizes and within 18 months been back to square one.

Just giving out billions more will do nothing. Give them more money and it will just disappear until they learn to be self sufficient. The old cliche of give a man a fish and you feed him a day, teach him to fish and you feed him a lifetime rings true.

The massive escalation in social welfare spending with a worsening result means just spending more aint going to cut it.

Psycho Milt said...

Of course my approach doesn't work, Bogusnews. As I pointed out, Jesus H. Christ himself didn't have any suggestions for something that would work. If your problem is that social welfare doesn't work, you might as well face - a problem-free future is not on the horizon for you.

For all its faults, one thing we can definitely say about social welfare is that, like democracy, it's the shittiest system, except for all the others. I'm open to suggestions as to how to improve it, but fascist bullshit about sterilising the poor doesn't fit that description.
