Growth Industry

Boy, I bet everything that could possibly be said about the evils of CPS/DCFS has been said. If I have any meaningful observation to make, it is with a touch of cynicism.

My wife will occasionally get emotional - really emotional. Occasionally, she gets really disappointed with me for some dumb thing I have said or done, and it turns into a squabble. She says stuff like, "How could you be so thoughtless?" and I say stuff like, "Hey, I'm sorry, I won't do it again, can you let it drop?" She says, "No, I can't let it drop - you are going to sit here and listen to me." I say, "Can't we please talk about it tomorrow?" She says, "No", so I try to exit stage-left until she gets re-composed. It's funny, because, at times like that, she'll say even harsh things and insist that I absorb them and take them to heart, then the next day, she pleads with me to not remember any of the stuff she said the night before because she had being saying things she didn't mean !!!!!!!! It always seems like a big waste of energy to argue for hours over some dumb, petty little thing, but women are women, and we love them, don't we?

In the world of business, if a tire blows on the company vehicle, the first priority is to get it changed and get back on the road. There's no merit in analyzing the broken glass that got stuck in the tire, or arguing for hours over whether the new tire should have a square or triangular tread pattern. In business, you have to weigh where to invest your energies for the greatest profit potential and not fuss endlessly over whether the new tire costs $65 or $70.

Texas CPS gets to break that rule of wise use of resources. The Texas Supreme Court literally drowns the Texas child welfare machine in paper money. It is a very cozy relationship. I actually cracked up today when I learned that the 17 year old YFZ girl brought somebody else's baby for the DNA test. I hear her saying, SCREW YOU, TEXAS (though perhaps in sweeter, FLDS terms) and thumbing her beautiful little nose at the callous machine. It's a tar baby, Texas! If you want to crush the people of the YFZ ranch, you are going to have to kill them first. You already messed up with the first invasion. You lost your credibility, so give up!

Yet Texas is trying to save face. It is scrambling to find and pin some dirt on somebody. No, the FLDS are not perfect (like the rest of Texas's citizens aren't), but I don't see the business case for spending countless millions of tax-payer dollars on hounding a small religious minority which, until recently, had a tradition of marrying at young ages like all of our ancestors. Texas needs to realize that no sum of money will weaken the spirit and resolve of these devout people. Our country is bankrupt. We are in a monster recession. Millions of innocent fetuses are murdered every year, with not a peep of protest from CPS. When it comes to one or two sixteen year olds who have a kid, methinks Texas doth protest way the hell too much!

I know you hate this strange religion, the religion of our ancestor Abraham, whom half the world's population reveres as the father of many nations. HYPOCRISY !!!! I am sick of government duplicity and fraud. The government is broke ($12.2 Trillion broke). Any money we spend now has to be borrowed from a bank who will inevitably want something other than worthless paper money in return. It is arithmetically (and lawfully) impossible for our descendants to repay the debt.

I would say that it is time to quit quibbling over stupid, petty, bigoted stuff, quit whining over one flat tire, quit throwing good money after nothing. Half of our country's workers are public "servants", employed by government, producing nothing, supported by the business proceeds of the private sector. CPS is a growth industry which can justify its continued existence and growth only if it can convince lawmakers that it serves a salutary role and is saving, rescuing and blessing America's families and children, and is the true guardian of their "best interests". Am I the only one who sees something apocalyptically sinister in this?
