Who Should Be Allowed To Breed?

I would like to state for the record that I do not have children, and do not plan to have children. My wife and myself came to that mutual decision. None the less I feel I still have a right to comment on this subject as a free thinking human being (or ape in my case...smile)

I sit back and remember a conversation I had with a RCMP constable in a coffee shop at 4AM one morning. He had just returned from a domestic disturbance call when he stated to the group of us; "You need a license to drive a car, You need a license to fish, You need a license to own a dog, You need a license to get married, Why the hell do you not need a license to have children?" For the record if people were checked out before procreating, and found out how many nut jobs there is in the world the world would be a pretty sparse looking planet. As there are just some people that should not be allowed to breed! Now all joking aside some people should not be allowed to procreate, because they are not smart enough to look after themselves let alone a child too! Now I am not saying that some people who need help in life should not be able to have children. I am talking about people that get up, hold down jobs, but just do not have the foresight to look past their own noses to think about someone else besides themselves let alone having to watch out for a defenseless child. We all know the type!

Baby ok after being left in hot car!
We all know as adults how hot it can get in a vehicle after sitting in it for a few minutes while some one runs in to a store for a few minutes. All that glass intensifies the suns rays to create a modern day easy bake oven if you will. Now pets are no different. People just don't think when it comes to pets either. Just cranking down a window a few inches is not the answer in keeping a pet safe. So why would we think that is suffice for a human life. Now before all the animal activists start a flood of hate mail. I consider any life as an important entity, but human life in the food chain is to be priority one next to an animal. It is what it is, or we would be running around eating little people along side all the other meat of the world. We have not got to that point yet in society thank god!

So have we got to the point that society has become such a wild west that it is the survival of the fittest? Thank god that there is people like that lady who cared enough to go investigate this situation, or we might be reading about different head lines regarding this young life. Now I think that there needs to be a BIG shame on you ministry of children services for not taking that child into protective custody. To say it was an momentary error in judgment is like saying I shot and killed you...me bad! Well it makes as much sense! Whether it is just a wake up call to this mother to teach her the value of her child. Send her to parenting classes. Maybe it is a case that she needs help, and that is fine too get her help if that is what she needs. Just remember there is a value to human life, and we need to be accountable for the lives around us regardless of the age! I think I have got my point across now go out and enjoy the day with your children and pets!

Until next time remember the good life, as I conceive it, is a happy life. I do not mean that if you are good you will be happy - I mean that if you are happy you will be good.
- Bertrand Russell

No kidding I am SOOO with you on this! Last year there was a show on tv - they took 5 teen "couples" who were planning on marrying, put them in a house (monitored) with a baby, one of them had to work, for a week. Next wk. it was toddlers. Next wk. jr. high then high school. The teens went thru hell - hated pretty much all of it! A few couples broke up, the ones who didn't chose not to marry and definitely were against having kids for at least a decade, if ever.

Now you say license, and I agree, but I think the hands on experience SO valuable. We could definitely wipe out the breeding without thinking. Wouldn't that be a great accomplishment?!
