The DPB: A failed experiment
Another gem from Libertarian Sus:
You almost don't know where to start, do you. Looking at the pieces of filth charged with the murder and assault of wee Nia Glassie, I just knew I was looking at subhumans. Everything about them, their demeanour, their detachment from what was going on around them, and yes, their complete lack of remorse or comprehension, even as to their actions, pointed to absolute uselessness. These cretins literally are a waste of space. They're oxygen thieves.
We've been here before -- many times -- going right back to little Delcelia Witika and James Whakaruru, both tortured to death by family and de facto family. Then there was Baby Lillybing and the Kahui infants, whose killer or killers still walk free. What a bloody disgrace. There are many more in between whose names, I'm ashamed to say, escape me.
I've never had any time for hand-wringing. I'm not a wailing socialist. And it doesn't take a Philadelphian lawyer to point to the common denominator of unfettered social welfare ... in particular, that misguided experiment called the DPB which allows:
1. loser dads to bugger off and leave Mum with the kids, knowing that the poor old taxpayer - again - picks the tab, and
2. loser blokes to move in with single-Mum-with-kids-on-DPB, to be fed and screwed on demand, and
3. young women to screw anything with no personal regard for future consequences, ending up with children they really don't want, who are treated accordingly.
The DPB is at the heart of this misery, paying people to have babies they neither want, nor care for properly. And every govt for 30+ years has supported and promoted it, rather than have the guts to call it for what it is: a failed experiment.
