Barak tries to sound Conservative

The problem of out of wedlock births is a social problem hardly limited to the Black community. The problem is that we tend to absolve the mothers of all negligence and mind games. It takes two people to make a child and women who make poor selections should accept some responsibility.

Sadly, at work I often hear of children used as footballs in brutal divorces. I hear story after story
of children caught in the center of these fights. Perhaps I should count my blessings that there were no children in my marriage. When my ex called years later I hung up. This is a luxury divorced spouses with kids should never do.

It is easier to lump a complex problem at the feet of one party than to talk of the larger picture. It is good that Obama is urging men to be responsible. However, women need to show better judgement at times. Sadly, some parents place their selfish needs of revenge before their kid's sanity.

When I worked at a children's shelter, I saw many horror cases show up. Like the woman who was of diminished responsibility(due to a car accident when she was a child), the drug dealers in her neighborhood would move in at the beginning of the month when she got her disability check...and mooch off of her until the money was gone, 7 children(with mostly different fathers)were removed, finally. But her womb was still open for business!
Or the prostitute with 5 children, who told a judge that as soon as she was released, she would go back to the dope and alcohol...her oldest had severe alcohol fetal syndrome.
There is alot of foolishness and stupidity out there, and I believe in compassion, but it needs to be coupled with some common sense!
Just handing out money and food and free medical care, eliminates the personal involvement necessary to stop the cycle!
This is why leftistas love having government do their charity, it keeps them from stepping into the gutter and getting their hands dirty!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

I completely agree with you. Mothers are often at fault too, just as Fathers.

My recent post is a true story over at our blog. What deeply saddens me is when I see a son who has no relationship with his dad and then gets rejected by the mother as well, but the situation is a catch-22. I wish there was a way I could help out somehow. If I had the patience, I'd take him in, but the potential consequences far outweigh the possibilities.
