"I guess it all boils down to responsibility. Should each person be responsible for his/her own welfare or should society be responsible for the irresponsible? I was always taught that once you hit the age of 18 you were responsible for your own actions. No one owed you a living. If you chose to have children, you were responsible and accountable for that decision, Where did our society go so terribly wrong?????"
Ouch, I am so glad you have never fallen upon hard times that were beyond your control. Society is not always responsible for the irresponsible, sometimes they are responsible for their own hard-working, moral, highly ethical people who sometimes need assistance due to circumstances beyond their control. I have been one of these people and it wasn't a result of my own action but that of my now ex-husband. I would NEVER want to be one of your patients knowing how judgemental you are. Do you stereotype absolutely everyone or just those that have fallen are hard times? Nothing like kicking someone when their down. :angryfire
