    Certainly, one may hold adults responsible for poor life choices.

    However, to hold children responsible for poor life choices of their parents is ignorant, ill-advised, cruel and harsh.

    My philosophy has been and will continue to be that if we are to consider ourselves a humane society, we will recognize that there will always be those who cannot or will not care for themselves.  If we are to rise above petty greed and selfishness, we must acknowledge this fact and care for any who are incapable for any reason of caring for themselves.

    The above is absolutely true for children.  EVERY CHILD DESERVES WITHOUT RESERVATION FOOD IN THE STOMACH, A ROOF OVER THE HEAD, CLOTHES UPON THE BACK AND ADEQUATE HEALTHCARE.

    Anyone, Repub or Dem who would dispute this needs to examine whether they are indeed human.
