Slow but Sure Demise of the Nanny State

Well, little sweet Wifey put up a post on her blog the other day about half the people in the country being on food stamps at one time or another during their miserable lives. What a nanny state we have become. What is really appalling is that the gubment is GLAD. The leftists encourage more and more nanny state dependence.

Another thing that really burns me are these woman who pop out one baby after another only to be raised up and live on the gubment dole.

A New Zealand politician, Michael Laws thinks that society would be better off to pay these people $10,000 and have them sterilized. Laws' concern is the number of children in New Zealand that grow up in abusive environments.

Of course, Mr. Laws' has just horrified those on the left, whose "liberal policies" have failed to resolve the problem. He has been branded as "totalitarian" and "draconian".

Hell, I think he has the right idea! There's nothing totalitarian or draconian about it. IT'S VOLUNTARY! And $10,000 is a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of taking care of an abused child from birth to adulthood. If you got the majority of these creeps on board, the nanny state would eventually die out.

Go HERE to read about Michael Laws.

What say you?


  1. I see your point, but giving them $10,000 is still having them look to the government. Once they spend the $10,000 they will just get some other kind of public assistance, won't they? Of course this is the plan of the present administration-- to have folks dependent upon government, thus subservient to the politicians.

  2. Perhaps, but at least they would not be birthing any more babies.
