....further tax credits, health insurance advantages and all kinds of other pro-natalist policies?
I have been lurking on a very different forum lately, one that has little to do with "intellectualism and debates", and everything to do with:
BABIES AND "TTC STUFF" (trying to conceive)
Fun, fun, fun! (My husband and I kind of reached this stage and ...anyway, you won't believe the cool techniques that are out there - but that's off topic).
What really shocked the Buhjesus out of me is to see all these women who simply want YET another kid (when they already have 3, 4 even 5, etc) as if they want a new doll. Beause they are sooo cute and they just want another one. Literally.
The process is fun, it's all about pinky/blue baby dust, taking temperature, making colorful charts, guessing the gender by looking at the chart - etc. They have a freakin' ball!
But I see little to no thought given to the future lives of these human beings that they are about to create (some MONUMENTAL SHIT, I would argur) by playing "getting preggy" on forums and tricking the dumb husband into BD-ing..
((FYI, BD stands for "baby-dancing")
There was this woman bitching and moaning about her husband not wanting to start TTC their 4th (the guy told hold her flat out that they cannot afford anymore! and she was having a hissy fit that she couldn't get her wish. Of course all the other chikies stepped in to bitch about how difficult men are, how they get impossible about having another child and how they have to "work" them into accepting it. (Uggh...duuuuuugggh! - when the poor guy is expected to provide for an army).
I was just flabbergasted to see how much pureposeful stupidity, immaturity and irresponsibility there is out there - and how these people are given full, unfettered license to fuck up human lives AND the world around them, just to get their selfish little desires met.
Of course, a few days later the woman pops back on the forum and says that she got a bfp (pregnancy sign) and now... how is she going to tell the husband? Apparently the husband BD-ed without protection...even though he refused to have a 4th ....so "he must have wanted another baby subconsciously!!"
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE F***-ing WORLD?
That being said, this takes me back to China.
No, I cannot stop people from being irresponsible morons and no, I cannot stop them from "baby-dancing" so they can have another live doll to play with (though I would if I could - and we probably SHOULD be working in that direction!!! - but I can at least stop giving freaking tax incentives to larger and larger families.
A family like mine (who would never even conceive the notion of having more than 2) has to make huge sacrifices to put the mother and one baby on husband's health insurance; yet a family who decides to BD without restriction, can continue to add 12 other "live dolls" on the same plan just because they like to BD. No problem...they get "cheaper by the dozen", don't they? !
(Talk about kitchy, populist movies with the wrongest messages possible).
Give me a freaking break and let's stop giving incentives to these nasty morons who insist on making this world an even nastier place than it already is.
In a country that bitches and moans about welfare and that advocates pesonal responsibility in everything, this should hold out pretty nicely, shouldn't it?
How about we stop subsidizing their insane baby-dancing?
And don't even get me started with the school of thought that says we need lots of labor force for the economy. Read the article below.
It makes sense: we don't. We will need a smaller labor force that is very well educated and skilled to fit the complex jobs of tomorrow's economy.
Quantity always attacks quality.
