I can sling it back, so here you go:
If the "folks" want to do something "good for their kids", they can start by teaching them to better themselves instead of teaching them to perpetuate and learn to live off the government dole. Teach them that getting an education is a sure fire way out of the projects, not selling drugs, not prostitution and not robbery. The means are there for everyone to get an education these days, but it takes personal motivation. Teach them that "breaking the cycle" of poverty prevails over being lazy and not taking personal responsibility. Blaming their life situation on others is a cop-out and an excuse to be lazy.
Now, if this comment gets read and if it gets understood and if those "folks" practice this, just imagine all of the "good" that will come to the chirrens!
Is that little bell beginning to ring for ya yet?
