uvuvuv, hopeully you are jesting about upping the bitches' payments. However, you hit the nail on the head as to why some women choose the fatherless, multi offspring lifestyle. They want the government subsidies. What is a poor, hard working dope bringing in a minimum wage check going to do for them? You math is correct. My niece worked with poor Los Angeles families as part of her training to obtain an occupational therapy degree. She noticed that many of the unmarried mothers had 5 kids. That is about the optimum number when one factors in the incentives and disincentives for these women to have kids.

The face of gun violence is not Sandy Hook. It is Chicago.

In 2012, President Barack Obama's adopted hometown had 506 murders, including more than 60 children. Philadelphia, a city that local television newscasters frequently call 'Killadelphia," saw 331 killed last year. In Detroit, 386 people were murdered.

Since 1966, there have been 90 school shootings in the U.S., with 231 fatalities. Yes, Sandy Hook shocked us. But the odds of a child being killed at a school shooting are longer than the odds of being struck by lightning.

Of the 11,000 to 12,000 gun murders each...
