in response to reader comment: My second comment

What you refer to as "decent Americans" is an opinion and in America we support your right to express that opinion. Americans are of many faiths and beliefs. Our Federal Reserve has worked well for over a century. You have a distorted view of America that likely comes from reading only what agrees with whatever your belief system DICTATES. I myself do not support abortion but I feel that the way to cut down on abortions is to educate people about when and how to have sex. Your views on homosexuality are outdated. Since this population is less than 10% of any culture I am unsure of why people are so hostile. Centuries ago people may have been against it because it would cut down on population, same with abortion.

When you have poor education and poor health care and you are in the business of agriculture then having big families makes sense. In the modern world it is not so important. I do not care how many children you want to bring into the World as long as you provide for them. When you bring a child into the World and do not provide them with support but expect the government to support them I have a problem with that. Working people should not be taxed to support children of lazy, irresponsible men who do not care about the connection between sex and babies. Safe sex is available and avoids unwanted pregnancy as well as sexually transmitted diseases when properly used.
