House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has announced that she intends to push for national childcare reform, supposedly modeled after Obamacare
Pelosi started by recounting her own experience saying,
“‘I could never get a babysitter — have five kids in six years and no one wants to come to your house. … And everywhere I go, women say the same thing’ about how hard it is to find the kind of reliable care that would make their family lives calmer and work lives more productive.”
And of course her solution is MORE Federal Government. Personally I do not see why reform is needed just require children from BIRTH unto age 35 to go to a government-run institution (school) so that they can be instructed in the ways of liberalism. OH wait liberalism teaches that parents should KILL THEIR CHILDREN and not let them be born. Okay so if the abortion fails and they are actually born – no scratch that – liberals have a policy for that too, they let them die. Oh never mind!
Seriously folks what has happened to our country, to our culture, and to our families? To think that a parent, who has children, would be looking for someone else to raise them baffles my mind.
Can a woman forget her nursing child? Will she have no compassion on the child from her womb? Although mothers may forget, I will not forget you. Isaiah 49:15 (GW)
“Look, everyone who uses proverbs will say this proverb about you: Like mother, like daughter. You are the daughter of your mother, who despised her husband and children. You are the sister of your sisters, who despised their husbands and children. Ezekiel 16:44-45 (HCSB)
Being childless myself I would welcome an opportunity to raise a child or two or three. I do understand how difficult it is to afford to live in our over taxed, liberal utopia that the progressives have handed us. We have to labor almost 40% of our time to pay for government, its agencies and personnel and to think that many of them actually earn more than those who actually pay their wages. Not only must we labor to pay their salaries and benefits we must also labor to pay for their fat retirement plans. Since we labor so hard for the government it leaves little time to actually work for our families and secure their futures.
Our heritage is given up to men of strange lands, our houses to those who are not our countrymen. We are children without fathers, our mothers are like widows. We give money for a drink of water, we get our wood for a price. Our attackers are on our necks: overcome with weariness, we have no rest. We have given our hands to the Egyptians and to the Assyrians so that we might have enough bread. Our fathers were sinners and are dead; and the weight of their evil-doing is on us. Servants are ruling over us, and there is no one to make us free from their hands. Lamentations 5:1-8 (BBE)
With the national debt consuming our entire gross domestic product our children will be lifelong indentured servants of the state. They will not be able to acquire for themselves anything since their entire existence will be consumed by the state.
For children are not obligated to save up for their parents, but parents for their children. 2 Corinthians 12:14 (HCSB)
Liberals hate conservatives because our solutions result in the person keeping more of their hard-earned money, as well as their property, and we promote allowing people to pursue their own happiness and not having the state steal their labor to give to someone who has not earned it. We believe parents should be responsible for raising their children and not the STATE, or like Hillary put it in her book, ‘It Takes a Village.’ No Pelosi and Clinton it takes a FAMILY.
Honor widows who have no families. The children or grandchildren of a widow must first learn to respect their own family by repaying their parents. This is pleasing in God’s sight. A widow who has no family has placed her confidence in God by praying and asking for his help night and day. But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead although she is still alive. Insist on these things so that widows will have good reputations. If anyone doesn’t take care of his own relatives, especially his immediate family, he has denied the Christian faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:3-8 (GW)
Liberal and progressive policies have assailed the family for decades and has led to the ruination of this great country. Parents are forced to choose between tending to their children or earning a living to pay the heavy burden of taxation placed upon them. The huge welfare state has practically destroyed the black families in America. Irresponsible behavior is rewarded while those who try to do the right thing are penalized by having their wealth stolen to be given to those who have become wards of the state. The poor would be far better off if they were encouraged to excel and not be manipulated by unjust government programs and policies.
The heritage of the good man is handed down to his children’s children; and the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the upright man. There is much food in the ploughed land of the poor; but it is taken away by wrongdoing. Proverbs 13:22-23 (BBE)
Father’s provide for your children! Mothers nurture and love your children! Children respect and honor your parents! And government get out-of-the-way of STRONG PRODUCTIVE families. Your system has failed and continues to fail which is why you are always asking for more, and begin more programs. God’s program works fine, how about we get back to doing things HIS way?
And by him the hearts of fathers will be turned to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers; for fear that I may come and put the earth under a curse. Malachi 4:6 (BBE)
