Society enables bad decision-making

Monday August 5, 2013 6:16 AM

I found Tuesday’s Dispatch article “Many moms struggle to buy enough diapers” to be exactly what is wrong with this country.
This goes from the moms who cannot afford to supply diapers to their children to the people who cannot afford the car they want but purchase it anyway, to the people who want a house but cannot afford it, to the cities that cannot control costs but keep putting money into unneeded projects, to the politicians running this once-great country who cannot keep from spending trillions of dollars they don’t have.
Too many people just don’t care about personal responsibility anymore.
I can’t afford that new car I just bought? Let the bank repo it. Let the bank come and take back that house that it should have been able to see that I could not afford. Too many houses foreclosed on? Go to the government for a bailout.
I have news for moms who can’t afford diapers: Those diapers will be the cheapest thing about having a baby. If one cannot afford to keep her baby healthy in fresh diapers, she will not be able to afford the ever-increasing cost of health care (yes, even after Obamacare), food prices, clothes, the extra utility costs, schooling costs (not including college, which even financially comfortable people are having trouble affording), insurance costs, entertainment costs — the list goes on and on.
Having a baby without being able to afford even the most basic need for a baby is a poor choice, and the rest of us will end up paying for this child’s well-being through government aid. I am getting sick and tired of seemingly everyone around me doing whatever they want, and then finding out they cannot afford it and going to the government for help.
Our government is in no condition to keep caring for everyone and their kids. The rest of us are stretched as well, and cannot afford to diaper everyone else’s babies.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
