Raise Your Own Children?-That's Being Narrow Minded According To MSNBC

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry made one of the more sickening announcements on MSNBC [and that is saying something] that I can think of.  First we were told by President Obama that our businesses weren't built by us, and now we are told by Mrs. Perry that our children don't belong to us, but rather to the collective society.  She wants society to break the outdated notion, I guess, that it is the parents' responsibility to raise their own children or the outdated notion that our kids belong to our family.  She takes Hillary's pronouncement that  "it takes it takes a village to raise a child" to even a lower standard.   Next, according to Mrs. Perry and MSNBC, it will probably be deemed bigoted and hateful for parents to think they should be the ones to raise their children and to think that their children are a part of their family.

Yes, I guess I could just ignore this as just some more leftist, socialist pablum from the little watched MSNBC, but the reason I feel the need to comment on this is because of remembering my Mom and Dad.

Mrs. Perry's stupid statement was an insult to my family and to millions of families throughout this country.

My wonderful parents taught me and my brothers Sandy and Brad and my sister Susan that family was everything.  They did this, not just by words, but in their actions of faithfulness, holiness, and their loving upbringing.  The loving upbringing by our parents could not have been matched by any government.  Our family has been and always be as one.  Even though my Mom and Dad are no longer on earth with us, but with God, my sister and brothers and I, along with our spouses, and our children and their spouses, and our grandchildren will always keep the family tradition together-forever!   And that family does not include Hillary Clinton and her village or Melissa Harris-Perry and her collective socialist utopia.  And I thank God for that.

Thank you Mom and Pop as we try to honor your role model and raise our children and grandchildren  the way you did for us. 

God Bless Mom and Pop and our family.

MOM-"Reenie" Beckman
Dad- "Pop" Beckman

Our family forever with no help from the government

What I don't think you're considering here is the notion of "it takes a village" to raise a child. What a blessing it would be for everyone to have parents as wonderful as yours, but not everyone does. We need to create chances for people who weren't born with them, and that means creating communities who galvanize behind the raising of our children.

Thank you very much for your compliment of my family and also for your sincere comments. I really appreciate them. :-)

With all due respect, when Mrs. Perry talks about we have to break away from the notion that parents are the ones who bring up their children, that is both insulting and stupid.
She didn't narrow her comments to children who don't have parents or have good parents. If she has wants the collective community to bring up her children, then good luck. I am going to bring up my own children.

This really brings the point home, Big Mike. Remember when we used to laugh at the Russians for this kind of thinking? This is *way* beyond helping the helpless. This is social engineering via the indoctrination of children under the guise of "helping" and "caring." Buzz off, government!
