Even though I know that the story is fake it did strike a little nerve with me. I'm always stuck behind this woman in the grocery store and the father is never around to keep the kids in line. But I can live with it, it's a free country and I usually feel sympathetic towards the mother even though I get ketchup squirted on me and the kids play floor hockey with the bagels, my kids can get a little rowdy too.
My motto is: you made it, you take care of it. I hate stories about people on welfare because they have 6 kids or single moms with 4 kids from 5 different fathers. Be a little responsibe, these are lives that you are playing with. Nothing is better than big families that have their stuff together. These people are the salt of the earth but it's the ones that can't manage their own lives and still pump out more kids that get to me. You need a licence to buy a dog but anyone can have a child. Where's the sense in that? Some people should just keep their legs closed.
See, I thought your comment was

But I was responding to Lofunzo's post which didn't seem to be very sarcastic at all.
Anyway, I agree with you, there are a lot of people that are very irresponsible with their children and shouldn't have had children either when they did or shouldn't have had as many as they did. So I do agree with you there.
