Yes, I’ll have more kids just to create a slave labor force to help care for me in my old age. And if one of them happens to become a scientist and wants to go do research on a colony on the moon (yes, it will happen), then I will shame that child and cut him or her out of my will. That’ll learn 'em trying to get some fancy education. Sorry kid, you can’t get a Ph.D. in molecular biology. Your role is to work at Walmart for minimum wage and then help wipe your old man’s ass when he’s too old to do it for himself. Hooray for family values, because THAT’S the real reason to have kids, right?
Do you even have kids, Sloth? I do. The thought of forcing her to care for me in my old age is so anathema to my why of thinking - you have no idea. The thought never entered my mind. And yes, believe it or not, the private sector and free market can and will provide a solution. Ever hear of long-term care insurance? I plan on getting some. Do you? Oh, I guess your “long-term care insurance” will be to have children and shame them into being your nurse.[/quote]
You would think that I write ad hominem and straw man enough that my computer wouldn’t tell me that I spelled them wrong (guess there is a space between “straw” and “man”), but I did. I should make a picture with those two words on their, make it easier on myself.
