https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/andrew-yangs-free-1-000-per-month-welfare-scheme-was-tried-in-mississippi-the-results-were-not-a-surprise

The paper last week reported on a Mississippi-based nonprofit that gave away $1,000 per month, no strings attached, to 20 low-income black single mothers living in public housing.

Initial results of the experiment were on display at a meeting held after one month of payments:

Some of the women talked about their gift-filled Christmases and sported new hairstyles. Some said they took a sick day for the first time. They began paying off overdue electricity bills and high-interest loans. Kira Johnson, a social worker, asked how much money the women had saved. “I blew all of it,” Gray recalled. “It only took a weekend.” Most of the women said the same thing. In a month, nearly all of the money had vanished.

“Then, they asked if we were going to hand them the next check,” Johnson said.
Wow, it’s almost as if people who are given a bunch of money without having earned it, and without any conditions attached to it, feel less of a sense of responsibility in how they use it.

The story went on to say that the women were largely clueless about saving money, using banks, and developing good credit. For that, they needed yet more “guidance and support,” Democrat terms for “more programs.”

After six months, the number of women in the group who were working hadn’t changed. Fifteen had been employed at the start and fifteen remained employed at the end. Of the ones who did have jobs, they “were not making much more money than the women who were not attached to the workforce.”

Poverty is a real problem and probably one that will never be solved — least of all by giving money away to people who are in it. The geeky $1,000-per-month gimmick was tried in Mississippi and this proves it.

I don't think a woman is brave for having an abortion (other than knowing she could die herself during the procedure), but I am pro abortion.

Typically the sentiment is "pro-choice", the notion being that the women gets full control of her own body and affairs, for whatever that may be.

Humans all get to make a variety of choices without the damned state inserting its pecuniary nose so I will sign in as also being pro-suicide, just for consistency.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/09/04/bernie-yes-im-courageous-enough-to-talk-about-population-control/

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told CNN’s climate change town hall attendees Wednesday night that he is willing to talk about population control, suggesting that abortion is key to addressing the climate crisis.

“Human population growth has more than doubled in the last 50 years,” an attendee told Sanders, adding that the planet cannot sustain such growth.

“I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians but it’s crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact,” the attendee continued.

“Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?” she asked.

“The answer is yes,” Sanders said, arguing that population control – in the form of abortion and birth control, specifically – is something he “very, very strongly” supports.

“The answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions,” Sanders said.

I prefer "pro abortion", because its a better illustration of what exactly I support. The term "pro-choice" is explicitly political speak, designed to persuade and coerce one into softening up to a barbaric act. A barbaric act I support, because its not my business to intervene in the next persons choices.

Also, there are so many children without a home or a family, stuck in overcrowded orphanages, and living in a daily hell because of it. And those orphanages are full to the brim because special interest groups lawfully force women to have children in their particular state, even if they don't want to.

Some people can't afford to raise a child, and get pregnant accidentally. My thought is why shouldn't they be able to choose whether or not they have the baby? Sure, its pretty horrifying, if you think about it ... killing a living being, with a nervous system sensitive to pain just like ourselves, but why go through the ordeal of having a child and resenting it because it took away your dreams - with you having to put yourself second, and devote your entire existence to putting a kid through school and university, only to have them hate you anyway? (because children can pick up on the resentment of not being wanted).

Humans all get to make a variety of choices without the damned state inserting its pecuniary nose so I will sign in as also being pro-suicide, just for consistency.

Fair point. But I worry sometimes that you boil things down to black and white, when grey is just as sound. I'm concerned at how much the media sways your everyday approach to life - but consuming that material is your decision. Just don't let Metron be engulfed by the news cycle.

Maybe you won't go off the rails as I did from it all ... all I caution you with is, make sure your decisions are being made by yourself and not by the things you are being fed on a daily basis out there in the many social channels that pump it out.

Yes. I do sound paranoid - because I am.

Your point being the choice is of course binary, one aborts or not - choice is simply a deflection from the reality of it?

Sustained!

Yes - an awful way to be thrown into life and reared by the state.

Indeed they can, we are in agreement again.

It's a total peril in a nation in which the overriding culture is the news cycle of course. I shall endeavour to detach with more regularity.

I think the time you spent listening to Rush has given you a window into us that only an outsider could examine dispassionately.

Paranoia is nothing to apologize for, rather it's your inner being warning of danger, like the prickly feeling one gets on the neck when walking in the wrong neighborhood.

And this reality is full of bad neighborhoods and getting worse all the time.
