Here is a post from an earlier thread and my reply (my reply is edited from the original to fix the grammar):
"This probably means that the poor have more children than they can feed. Clearly reducing access to abortion and birth control was unbelievably stupid and short-sighted."
I see that you're favorite character in Dickens is Scrooge.
"If the poor are going to die then they should be quick about it!"
It strikes me in the discussions over social issues that libertarians always expect someone else to take the hit and make the sacrifice, and that right wing solutions to social problems are always punitive. The poor are always seen as lazy animals who should be punished and sterilized, people who are definitely "not like me."
It also strikes me that the poor are the last population expected to be thrifty. I suppose it would be too much to ask to hold The Masters of the Universe and the bankers to the same standard.
