Soon enough, government sponsored child care will become an entrenched 'right', just like health care. Those of us who protest will be labelled as callous and inhumane. Never mind that there won't be money left for adults to feed themselves and look after their own families - better off demanding that your neighbour pay for your children.
Thousands of London families could end up on child-care waiting lists if the city doesn't buy into a new program, city council was warned last night. Coun. Susan Eagle told councillors child-care experts predict thousands more London families could become eligible for subsidized child care under new regulations that take effect next year.
At risk of sounding callous, perhaps you shouldn't breed until you can afford to pay for childcare. As usual, the notion of incentive and responsibility falls on deaf ears in this country. There is always going to be someone worse of than me, but I fail to see why I should fall further into poverty to pay for my neighbour's needs. What ever happened to freely given charity, and family aid and love? May as well set up the ration line now - let us get rid of money altogether. Let the Susan Eagles and Sandy Whites of the world decide what is in the best interest of society.
