So, what stops people from popping out kids to stay home?

right and it's not like this happened overnight, it took decades to get our rights in place because of people pushing government. I mean we are basically in control of what happens, I know Harper and his cronies have been doing things that aren't very agreeable but the great thing is that people have the power to change things if they really want to.

Nothing. Who cares if they do? I certainly don't. It's their choice to use the system we have in place... if some mother wants to pop out kids every year til her uterus dries up that is her choice, free country.

oh but they wouldn't qualify for the EI if they don't work, but I'm sure they could get on OW. (welfare)

They don't spend nearly 1/2 a trillion dollars on a bloated military budget, which probably frees up some cash :-P.

Its not like that tho for EI PREMIUM you have to accumulated so many hours to access it when its needed. For me to get my leave you needed 600 hrs for the past yr. Which I worked way more then that.



Welfare different story. But on welfare to get it you need to be looking for employment and submit everywhere you have applied to or be already working.

Lucky for you then! Must suck paying for all those millions on food stamps though eh?
I think that is part of the benefits of living in a less populated country though, not paying for as many dependants. But unlike some people I don't judge people needing assistance.

American society is centered around the achievements on the individual which is why we don't adopt the broader views of socialism. It has it's good points, and it's bad points.

Which is too bad. I was always taught that cooperation is the key to success.

Well the good point is that it makes us quite productive, and much easier to earn wealth outside of degrees if you want to. The bad side is it encourages a lot of selfish behavior in our country.

Oh we still have selfish people here too, still very much a capitalist country in that sense however most people can't compete when a global franchise moves in. It may not make much of a difference in large cities but we only have a handful really large cities here. I remember when Wal-mart came to our city, so many local shops closed down. I remember our city before MacDonalds or any other fast food place moved in, things sure have changed. Sure lots of jobs but not as much local success.
