No excuse

via Lindsay Mitchell

The latest issue of Rise, MSD’s magazine, contains the story of Henare and Pam O’Keefe, a Flaxmere couple who have fostered hundreds of abused and neglected children over many years. It’s well worth reading and uplifts rather than depresses.

But what are the leftist poverty-pushing politicians and academia going to make of this?

Poverty, says Henare, is no excuse for abusing your family. He thinks back to his own childhood, in a dirt-floor home with no electricity and wonders how his parents managed to feed them all.“But I can recall nothing, but good.”

    INCROYABLE. MAGNIFICENT WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS MY ADMIRATION FOR THIS COUPLE.

    THESE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT SHOULD BE SUPPORTED NOT THE WHINERS, WHINGERS AND MOANERS.

    BRAVO ZULU TO THEM BOTH.

    So many people in “poverty” don’t even help themselves because they insist on having massive families. *That* is where “poverty” comes from – the stretching of a low income to cover a huge family (and often, poor spending choices as well).

    These kind of people running a charter + boarding school, would near break the cycle in one generation.
