“Is Family Instability Good For the Democrats?”

I did NOT WRITE THIS but found it compelling and fascinating and worth a conversation;  I hope you think so, too.   Please see how you’d answer the author’s question at the END.

*The Heritage Foundation’s The Daily Signal published an adaptation of Con Job: How Democrats Gave Us Crime, Sanctuary Cities, Abortion Profiteering, and Racial Division, by black conservative blogger Crystal Wright.

Wright cited the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s “The Negro Family: The Case For National Action” report in which he warned about the increasing social pathology among female-headed households in the black community. Last year marked the 50th anniversary of the report’s publication.

Five decades ago, almost a quarter of black babies were born to unmarried women. Today, close to 75 percent are born into these households. Children who grow up in unstable homes face a higher risk of dropping out of school, getting suspended or expelled, becoming pregnant out of wedlock, and ending up in prison.

“The majority of black babies are being born to single mothers—a prescription for a life of poverty and crime,” Wright wrote. “And despite the warnings that have sounded off loudly for over half a century, Democrats have done nothing to stop blacks, their most steadfast constituents, from having babies they can’t take care of. This problem has perpetuated itself for generations, producing generational poverty among blacks…If black lives truly matter, as Democrats shout at the top of their lungs, why don’t they promulgate policies that encourage blacks to get married before they have kids?”

Wright contended that what’s bad for blacks “translates into a high rate of return on investment for Democrats,” who market the “‘no baby daddy’ syndrome,” encouraging illegitimacy.

The damage is done, and illegitimacy is generational. The majority of black children don’t grow up living in the same house as their biological fathers.

“In other words, in America today, it is rare for black babies to be born to married parents. Black fathers are simply not part of the black family equation. Think about that.”

What incentives could the government provide to encourage family formation?

  1. Tin Foil Hat time.
    Is this Cloward-Pivens?
    Or just unintended consequences?
    Either way, fixing it will be painful.
    The behavior has to be dis-incentivised.
    Heartless racist! 🙂

    This is called The Great Society, started by LBJ and the Democrat party (who knew full well what it would blossom into) – and funded by stolen Social Security funds in the early 1960’s. It’s also known as the democrat breeder program. Democrats sure as hell don’t want to disrupt this process.

    I like to say that the left likes to destroy anything that prevents them from getting you under control: the three Fs. Faith, freedom and family. All of them are basic human traits or instincts too and are important for our survival or well being.

    “Is Family Instability Good For the Democrats?”

    It’s intuitively obvious that “Family instability” is “Good” for NO ONE! Why that’s even a question transcends my pay grade but for the fact that ignorance runs rampant in America today. What was once known as “common sense” is becoming more and more un-common as societal deterioration continues its toll (just look around).

    “What incentives could the government provide to encourage family formation?”

    Although the “government” cannot legislate morality it could start by eliminating all of the [disincentives] that it has created to bring us the present situation. I fear, however, that this is unlikely in a society so entrenched in and so dogmatized by the self-destructive disease known as ‘political correctness’. That said; even if the “government” would embark on removing the disincentives, that it has created, it would likely be a long and arduous process. I sure wish that I could be more optimistic.

    SO well said… I couldn’t agree with you more….you really capture the situation.

    FB: Yes! the 3 F’s…YOU ARE SOOOO RIGHT! and your excellent observation .makes me want to say another F under my breath!!

    Kid; they sure don’t want that disrupted…

    Ed; “The behavior has to be dis-incentivised” Imagine? HOW? but you are SO RIGHT!!!

    There is no fixing it. These women are career democrat baby makers. There is no education in their communities. They’re on welfare, section 8 and WIC. To get more money they pop kids out like pieces of toast that they have no intention or capacity to take care of while staying unmarried. There was a black girl working in the warehouse here that testified to me how many of these women there were just in her section 8 building. Most of them do drugs and party all night.

    This is designed this way. There are no unintended consequences involved. LBJ said when he created this great society that (a direct quote) This will have those n—— voting democrat for the next 50 years. It’s by design. No one will ever stop this. It’s not just black girls and it’s been going exponential for 50 years.


  7. FB says:

    I’m not optimistic. As long as we allow the government to disrespect property right and steal the fruit of our labor to redistribute it or give it to donors and lobbies through subsidies, it has all the incentives it needs to make you buy into this collectivist trend.

    Once it becomes the middle man of our human interactions and pins citizens against one another because one is more lucky or has more than the next guy, we’re less free. The gov morality, the moralist bureaucrats step it to tell us how to interact. We don’t need the faith, we have gov morality. We don’t need family, we have the collective and what the French call national solidarity and fraternity, which is an utter bunch of merde.


  8. FB says:

    Let’s not forget that marxists see the concept of family as bourgeois and for that mere reason want to destroy it. I think it’s mentally sick.


  9. John M. Berger says:

    Well “50 years” has passed and there is no end in sight! Nice, isn’t it.


  10. Mal says:

    Exactly, John. There is no fixing it ’cause its too late.
    And thanks, LBJ! Thanks a WHOLE BUNCH!

    Though many would label it “spartan” or “cruel” or “abusive” or any number of other similar adjectives, I say the best way to incentivize layabouts and parasites and entitlement junkies is to turn off the taps and shut down the cornucopias.

    The familiar term for the concept is “tough love” . . . the process of applying discipline and constraints on children, miscreants, parasites, addicts, criminals, and so on in a program designed to promote responsibility and develop self-sufficiency.

    “Tough Love” in North America differs from the term as applied in other countries, where it is often referred to as “authoritative parenting” or “stern rehabilitation.” As a political policy here in the US, it is restricting state benefits such as Welfare, Housing, WIC, food stamps, and so on as a pressure mechanism for dependency withdrawal.

    VERY unpopular with Liberals, and the very reason most entitlement junkies vote Democrat, since they know that Conservatives will cut back on the bennies and they might be forced to actually (GASP!) EARN those Welfare checks and food stamps and gubmint cheese.


  12. FB says:

    I agree bocopro. Or if you get welfare, you have to work for the State and the collective since the collective is paying for you. Or you opt out of your right to vote.

    I’m becoming more and more in favor of having people who DON’T rely on welfare and pay taxes have 2 or plus votes vs 1 for someone who isn’t paying taxes. I call that progressive voting.


  13. Boco and FB +1
    We had welfare reform under Gingrich (not Clinton) and we can do it again.
    It has to be a weaning away, though, and the jobs have to be there.


  14. Geezer840 says:

    The government has no business being in any activity concerning family. That they insinuated themselves into that arena to begin with is the problem.
    We need leaders who will undo what prior legislators have screwed up. We do not need more government solutions.


  15. Mal says:

    Bocopro got it right (“turn off the taps”) but that’s getting harder and harder with the continual growth of the “gimmies” becoming citizens. They simply will outvote us if we try, and it seems even a GOP majority in Congress is unable to stop it.
    I got to thinking what it is that makes the left so accepting to the young voters. I believe the words “liberal” and “progressive” sound hip and what needs to be done to keep growing, but they fail to realize our way of life, our Government, Constitution, and Bill of Rights are the exception and the reason for our society becoming the greatest, most accomplished, in world history. It needs to remain untouched (if it works, don’t fix it). How do we get that message across to them?


  16. Kid says:

    Mal, I’ve talked to enough of them to believe words will have no affect. They will need to feel the pain of poor decision making before the freighter turns around. It may be too late by then for them.


  17. Imp says:

    Well…for we “cons”….Conservatives…. The beatings will continue until morale improves.
    Understood ?


  18. C-CS says:

    and- don’t forget DETROIT- the model of liberal think!!


  19. FB says:

    OMG, I’m watching this GIF and I just saw a youtube video where a French imam tells the kids that listening to music will lead them to be engulfed in the Earth. Synchronicity, not in a good way.

    and it can’t happen……..too many Democrats voting goodies for themselves…

    Ed’s right, too…it MIGHT be able to happen WITH JOBS AVAILABLE…but ONLY THEN.

    FB; let’s hope those kids DO listen to music, then. 🙂

    CS…so true. 😦

    IMP IS ALSO VERY RIGHT IN SAYING OUR MORALE NEEDS TO IMPROVE…(Kid, just for the record, your video helps not a bit :-)!!! But you knew that :-))


  21. Mal says:

    Agreed, Kid. It’s so sad.


  22. FB says:

    I’m laughing. I wish the kids would listen to Reason. Because I’m sure they’ll still listen to music and they’ll feel so angry with themselves, they’ll take it on the other people.


  23. Kid says:

    FB, The amount of ignorance out there is breathtaking. 🙂
    Fascinating as Mr Spock would say.


  24. Kid says:

    Z, Yes, Bocopro has the correct solution but it sure can’t be timely. None of the people we are talking about are employable due to lack of education, morals, and a smple ability to operate in a multi-person environment. We get tehm in all the time. Our company must get tax breaks to hire gangbangers. But none of them last long. Every 3rf phrase out of their mouth is MF, and they have no idea the effect of that. This is natural polite language to them. Plus they all have 4 foot long feelers out 24/7 for anything that could possibly be construed as racist. They are not able to coexist in a business environment.

    Here’s a little smile for anyone who hasn’t seen it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwWDa1xPTPA


  25. Imp says:

    @Kid…..As we all know, for fifty years the government has been forcing square pegs into round holes, and it has accomplished nothing but destruction. Benefitting who? Blacks? Surely not… and if they had any sense of pride or dignity…they wouldn’t accept these conditions. And more to the point…that Obama has now doomed them to another 100 years of the perpetual underclass. Even this corrupt DOJ knows where the crime comes from…and they’re willing to engage in more lawlessness so that the crime and criminals can go unpunished and ignored as well as an accepted part of the underclass DNA….talk about bigotry.


  26. Kid says:

    @IMP. Talk about Evil. The democrat party is about as evil as ISIS as far as I’m concerned by enslaving so many people to a life of zero and death. Seriously. I hate them that much. The current GOP isn’t far behind.


  27. Imp says:

    @Kid…you may recall that at my annual Christmas ( Not Winter Solstice or Holiday ) bash. I declined to invite about a dozen known loons / libs this year. No matter how damn long I knew them. See…I looked around my back yard and tried to figure out if I could bury them all in my yard under my lemon and lime trees. I was certain my trees would die. As it turned out we had a grand time, free of their BS lunatics whose bes lines have always been…”Of come on…you’re a bigot..you can’t really mean / say that”. On the contrary…I had an amazing time outside with like minded people…..they wanted me to run for office!!! LOL We don’t need to suffer these fools, feed them or even give them the time of day….Oh…BTW…

    Die Fahne hoch.


  28. Kid says:

    @IMP. Similarly, we had some friends that are basically great people. Go out to dinner occasionally, animal lovers, other great qualities too but stone cold libtards. We don’t see them anymore and haven’t since obama got elected. They supported him, obamacare and all the rest of the libtard nonsense. I won’t entertaiin or befriend those people no matter what other qualities they have, They are enemies to me, America, and my descendants. I will not entertain them.
