The so-called "war on poverty" is really a war on the impoverished. I can't.

Sorry for the repost y'all!

I just saw Rep Campfield on TV trying to push this bill and it just irritated the hell out of me.

all of these efforts should be focused on helping and educating the poor and making them self-sufficient

 totally against this proposal but i'ma play devil's advocate and admit that I wouldn't be adverse to them tying welfare benefits to parent participation in ptas and children's turning in homework with parent's signature. if they're at home all day, they need to be involved. 

This... 

And i'm sure in low income neighborhoods..they use parents volunteering during the day at the school.

i'm just not seeing any sort of benefit to this bill.

even if this guy had kids, he wouldn't have to worry about his kids being successful in school b/c he has so many resources at his disposal that many who are on assistance do not have access to.

are they going to have a separate requirement for ppl who are receiving benefits that don't have children?

Heard about this a while ago. I hope they don't go through with this.

I have to wonder...how is it that we've allowed ourselves to reach this level of failure in parenting?

We have people proposing all these laws because parents aren't even trying to do the basics anymore. This is really troubling.

unfortunately, some of these poor kids have parents who can barely read and write themselves.
