Shasta is 15 yrs. old.
Her biological father is in prison… and three of her brothers have been jailed for various offenses – one for murder. Her mother is on welfare.
Shasta is BLACK, poor and pregnant – AGAIN, for the 2nd time with an illegitimate baby. She receives FREE
housing, electricity, food stamps, and welfare payments. She knows her welfare assistance will increase upon the birth of her 2nd “out-of-wedlock” baby.
Her first child was born premature in one of the largest public hospitals in the nation, Charity Hospital in New Orleans. Her first baby’s medical bills amounted to more than $78,000. Thousands of taxpayers in New Orleans, Louisiana, and the rest of the USA, must now shoulder the burden of Shasta and her offspring in perpetuity.

“If you please pass this on, for I have responded to a multitude of these [inquiries] and it appears nobody wants to share this information. Wyatt Emmerich wrote a guest commentary for us that time.

It is not online at our site, only available in print version.”]
Elaine is 32 yrs. old. She, and her husband Ron, both work hard and pay a great deal in taxes. They are trying to buy a home and start a family, but they just can’t afford it because Elaine would need to quit work for a while. They are hoping, in a couple of years, to be able to afford one child, but they know that it will be extremely expensive sending their child to a private school.
They feel it wouldn’t be right to send their child to the 85% Black, crime-filled, drug-laden school in their district in New Orleans. With the sales tax at 9% and their state and federal income taxes at close to 30%, they feel resentful that, not being able to afford children of their own … they must support illegitimate welfare children.
Fifteen-year-old girls like Shasta, are an increasing occurrence in our major cities, even though the government spends better than ten times (10X) more on welfare than just two decades ago. America has more poor, more crime and more ghettos, more alienation than ever.
Why? It must be painfully obvious to almost everyone by now: the high welfare birthrate outstrips our ability to finance meaningful programs to help the poor. To solve America’s poverty problem, the soaring illegitimate birthrate must be curtailed. …con’t Here.
