Everything Parents Really Want To Say To People With No Kids

Commented Nov 20, 2013 at 10:53:31 in Parents

“When people ask me why I don't have kids (which actually happens a lot less frequently now that I'm a little older--I guess I'm a lost cause), I answer that it's not kids that I don't like--it's the parents. I won't criticize your (overindulgent) parenting, and you don't make light of my propensity to get up at noon on the weekends. Deal?”

“My advice, some of which I've followed up on, some I (regretfully) have not:

First, do those things you daydream about, and not what everybody (including family) expects of you. Second, go to college only if you really enjoy scholarly pursuits; otherwise, do something else (there are plenty of mechanics and plumbers who make a lot more money than I, and work for themselves to boot). Third, do not run up a line of credit; keep few possessions. Fourth, marry ONLY for love, and raise a family only if it's something you really want to do (I'm married, but don't have kids, and that's the single best decision I ever made).”

Laura Ingraham Wages A Personal Crusade Against Immigration Reform

Commented Nov 7, 2013 at 20:00:46 in Media

“Does anybody listen to AM talk radio anymore? It's really cynical to believe that those pushing for immigration reform simply want to accrue more voters for the Democratic party, rather than because it's the right thing to do, given the unique history of our southern border and the often contentious nature of US-Mexico relations. Can conservatives offer any explanation for legislation besides political one-upmanship and self-interest? Is that all they know?”

NYBill on Nov 8, 2013 at 06:48:03

“Is allowing anyone to enter this country without so much as a by your leave does what? If there were a million or two Irish coming in, you would be the first to comment and complain.

Why is erasing the Southern border "The Right thing to do"?? Because drones repeat that phrase over and over for their savants??
There are millions of people who come here and follow the rules...why are those from Mexico and central America excused from that, because their names are Jose.

There is a big problem, especially in California, with a group of immigrants from El Salvador or some such in central America that calls itself MS13 and another from mexico called the mexican mafia- just to name two of many such groups; why does this nation permit a group of foreigners to exist in a criminal enterprise. Even the local politicians complain how sections of their towns are under the control of these gangs...Yet, they do NOTHING about it.
Most also complain about guns and the need for more controls; how about these politicos show some backbone and go take the guns away from these gangs and deport all of those who are illegal!!”

nobodysgirl on Nov 7, 2013 at 21:11:38

“How about the usurpation of our natural resources?

Water? You know - for minor things like drinking and growing crops?

Jobs? Is there anyone who doesn't recognize that our wages are NEVER going to go up again, as long as there are millions of people who'[ll do it for a half-penny?

Laws? O yes, and then there's that little notion called borders and sovereignty.

Our natural heritage? O well - people are more important than any other species so it's ok if we kill all our wildlife off to make room for those who have broken our laws and want to turn our country into another mexico.

Sorry but I've just lost patience with all this. Our elected reps cannot seem to do their jobs no matter how much it costs the USA. Go on - just give it all away.”

“We don't have that many laws protecting workers, so if you think being anything like Spain is an issue (if what you say about Spain is accurate), we're not even close. Non-discrimination is pretty basic, common-sense stuff.”

Robert Washington on Nov 4, 2013 at 11:00:38

“I agree we are nowhere near Spain and a number of other countries. And I am for the law. But I can also say that as an employer, I am very reluctant to add another employee because of existing law. If you run a business, I am sure you know what I mean.”

“That's a great insight, and you mostly have it right. In a society where competition and self-aggrandizement are valued above all else, our most base impulses are not only brought to the fore, but even celebrated. But I take issue with the third world country part, which is a tad essentializing. Most people from the third- and second world I've met have been incredibly nice, and were confounded by our hyper-competitive, always-on-the-go, all-in-for-me culture.”

mscp22 on Oct 29, 2013 at 10:50:07

“You make a great point. I guess I should have stated it less geographically. Cultures where opportunity for achievement and mobility are limited do result in attaining status based on sexual prowess, i.e., men who then judge themselves and others by how many children by multiple women they've created. In American culture, particularly in poorer communities where opportunity is limited, it can also apply.
Rather than a value judgement, it further demonstrates the basic human need to feel and be regarded as competent. If that need cannot be met through the workings of what should be a society that enables all its members to prosper, than more immediate, primitive behaviors will dominate to fill that need. IMHO, I see it as a decline in civilization whose skids are greased by technology, but that's a different story.”
