The New Diaper act!

“‘We all believe that nothing we do in government is as important as ensuring the next generation has the tools they need to thrive. But for our children and our nation to succeed, we have to support their development, their families, and the public policies that ensure opportunity. Ensuring that low-income families have access to diapers through the DIAPER Act is one of those policies that will make a difference, and I urge you to become an original co-sponsor…”
-Rosa DeLauro (D.-Conn.)

I think, that now, I have heard it all. Government now, is being urged to provide free diapers for children in daycare because they will not be allowed into daycare without diapers. So the D.I.A.P.E.R. act is being proposed. D.I.A.P.E.R. stands for The Diaper Investment and Aid to Promote Economic Recovery Act. This stupidity is being proposed by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D.-Conn.), to empower struggling families by directing the federal government to distribute free diapers through daycare centers. Folks, they are now trying to make diapers another entitlement that we all have to pay for.

No, I am not making this one up. I wish I was. It would be more believable, and easier to swallow.

DeLauro said in a letter to congressional colleagues urging them to co-sponsor her bill. Without diapers, children are not allowed to attend daycare, said DeLauro, who described those in need as a ‘lost generation of Americans.'”

The lost generation of Americans? I think this DeLauro is part of a lost generation. My generation wasn’t lost. We also didn’t wear disposable diapers either. Our mothers put cloth diapers on us, and when they were dirty, they put them in the wash and washed them so they could be reused. And we grew up and survived childhood. Then, if we ran out of diapers because they wore out, mom got out the sewing machines and made more. For crying out outside folks. I know I don’t want to pay for diapers for someone else to use on their kids, when it isn’t necessary. Do you? And to top this all off, this is only for women with children in day care. If we do this, won’t the ones who take care of their own kids at home, then say that they are being discriminated against? And you know where that will lead…….

This whole entitlement mentality is getting ridiculous to the power of ten. It has to stop. People can take care of themselves a heck of a lot more than anyone anymore thinks they can. The idea that the we cannot take care of ourselves is actually getting rid of those ideas. SO QUIT IT!!!

May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.

  1. Free diapers? Are you kidding me?! This is insane! I worked in day care and I saw low-income parents struggling to make ends meet. I once bought diapers for a little boy because he’d run out and his mom was between checks and couldn’t afford to buy diapers for both home and day care. I didn’t tell her I’d bought the diapers because I did it from my heart and wasn’t looking for praise or anything. But she found out that I’d bought the diapers and she cried she was so grateful. I loved her little boy, knew he was in need, and I helped out.

    In addition to buying diapers specifically for that little boy, I always had at least one pack of diapers that was for the whole class. I used those classroom diapers for any baby who ran out of diapers during the day. That’s what charity is. It’s NOT government taking money from people against their will and spending it on others. And you’re right, Robert. If these free diapers are only for working moms who’s kids are in day care, then stay-at-home moms AND working moms whose kids are not in day care can cry, “Discrimination!” And we don’t need more of that.
    reply from Robert: I was just as amazed as you when I first heard about this. The left just can’t seem to get away from their entitlement mentality. I think it is in the drugs they are taking or in their DNA. But something is definitely wrong with them when they know thinking like that is destroying this country, yet they still continue on with their way of forcing everyone to pay for the ones that won’t work. I for one am sick and tired of this kind of thinking, and am going to do my part to get every liberal democrat and republican and independent out of office this next election.
    And one more thing. Barak Obama is supposed to be this big environmentalist, yet this free diapers bill would encourage the use of more disposable diapers which, I’ve heard, don’t degrade well in landfills. But I guess the Dems’ believe that’s a small price to pay to get more people dependent on government. And that’s what this is really about. The more people who depend on Uncle Sam the more voters the Democrats will most likely get, which will lead to the Dems getting more and more power. Power is the goal, and the Dems are shamelessly exploiting kids to get it. They should be ashamed, but we know they aren’t. And that’s the real shame.

  2. Robert, I’m with you, friend. The more one does, the more the recipient wants. As Seana says, use cloth ones and wash them. That’ will save money all around……Send this government stooge packing……..
    reply from Robert: Amen to that my friend. Government waste is way too much. Reagan had the right idea. Obama is doing nothing but implementing the plan that two of his Columbia professors taught him. To Overwhelm the country with debt and destroy capitalism.

    reply from Robert: Been a while since I wrote this one. Thanks for the comment. Merry Christmas.
