"Can't Feed 'Em? Don't Breed 'Em"

Posted Jun 13 2009 12:39am
What a horrible quote that is! What are people of limited means supposed to do, not have kids? That is outrageous! Who decides if people are allowed to breed unchecked? It certainly shouldn't be a county or state employee. That is horrible! The mother of 5 in Cecil County, I think her name is Naikkia, has the right to have as many children as she wants and no bureaucrat has the right to question it! She is being thrown out of her section 8 housing for having an unauthorized person supposedly living in her house. What, now they are going to decide who can live with us?

Here is a mother of 5 that is working hard to become a nurse, but she just keeps getting hassled by the man. How does her husband, or boyfriend feel about this? They must be divorced if she is living with the children by herself. Can't hold that against them. He must be paying for her education, that's nice. Wait a minute, you don't think? No, it's not possible she has 5 children, is living in section 8 housing, and going to nursing school on my dime? She is doing all that and doesn't see how stupid it is to complain about THAT particular quote?

Maybe it's me, but I thought we had a responsibility to take care of ourselves? I understand there times when we can't. Boy do I understand it! To self inflict 5 children, I'm taking for granted she wasn't raped 5 times, to self inflict that I think you lose the right to complain about the system. Reminds me of a line from A Few Good Men, something along the lines of living under what I give you and then complaining about the manner that I give it? Why do people assume they have that right?

I think I can tell you why they feel that way? We let them. Do we not have rules in our society? Do we not have to follow said rules? Evidently not? Why isn't this mother of 5 who lives in section 8 housing in some type of work program? Why shouldn't she be required to work for what she has? Is there no work she can do from her section 8 housing while she is home with her 5 children? If she has a few more kids will she qualify for medical school? Why are we paying to send her to nursing school? Seems like a flaw to me?

Cecil County Delegate Michael Smiegel is "outraged" by this entire thing. Surely he wants people held accountable for their own actions, right? He wants people to stand up and take responsibility for what they do, right? No, sorry, that's not what he is "outraged" by. His "outrage", and Naikkia's, is that the quote "Can't Feed 'Em? Don't Breed 'Em" appears on a bumper sticker, on a car, driven by Dave Mahanney, who runs Cecil County's Housing Authority. If that was his work vehicle, OK, maybe that's not kosher, but he sure has the right idea!
