In the Nanny States of America, we are told by our increasingly authoritarian leaders that the government knows best what is good for our children.
Especially, as far as non-custodial parents go, no one is capable of taking care of a child like our government can. So, we should all just up, surrender our rights, and let the government take care of things, just like the soon to be 10-year-old war on terror.
And we all know how that's going. Trillions spent. The world more dangerous and destabilized than ever before. With government agencies abusing our rights at airports and other places. And the world teetering on the brink of economic collapse.
So it should not surprise us that in the golden state of California, foster care children are sleeping on the floors of government offices.
At least the floors are clean, or so a state worker informs us, in this explosive report from the LA Times: http://www.latimes.com./news/local/la-me-foster-homes-20110712,0,5127877.story
