People are stupid....Period.
Many are....semicolon....however, as long as the stupid are in charge of everything, there's not much the intelligent can do to change anything.
Why do people always do the opposite of what they are told? People are told not to continue having kids....so they do.
Cuz the bible tells them so.
Consider what happens to women who try to stop having kids. Back in the bad old days in my neighborhood, the priest went around to visit all the moms while the kids were in school, and any woman who wasn't popping them out at least biannually, he would counsel for her "problems" and get her back in the program. Oh, you mean women whose health problems make them bad candidates for pregnancy and childbirth? I ended two pregnancies to save my life. The last head of that church came to my country and announced that he wanted to end abortion in my hemisphere, on my turf, and he said not one word about exceptions for the mother's health or rape or incest or anything else, being the anti-woman bigot that he was, and I doubt the new guy is any better. The kind of church that the Yates belong to makes the church I grew up in look open-minded.
People are told to stay behind the yellow line...and they don't.
People are told not to touch a hot stove...so they do.
Can't help you on that one.
People are told to use protection during sex...and they don't.
Cuz the priests and preachers that interpret the bible for them tell them so.
She killed her kids...period. Her husband didn't...she did. The only thing he is guilty of is being a bad father and letting a killer get to his kids.
How about accessory to murder? How about forcing a killer to remain a killer and forcing a killer to kill her kids, no matter how hard she tried to get away and get help? I'd like to see the whole lot of them, the ones that stopped her from getting the help she begged for, nicked for accessory.
