UNICEF Silliness: American Children Most Disadvantaged!

Published by at 12:14 pm under All General Discussions

UNICEF (that would be the United Nations of course) has decided US children are deprived! Too silly to even believe. Someone has their knickers in a twist, but I can tell you the kids here are so well off it is almost embarrassing. For one, nearly all homes are wired to the internet, so children have access to the world. While there are pitfalls to be wary of and avoid, the access to people from across the nation and world is not a minor feature. And many homes are like mine, with each child owning a computer, dual wireless networks, and a focus on education and sports to balance out all onslaught of media. Where ever this nonsense came from, the life of a child in the US is an amazing experience of near endless opportunities. What is clear is the two nations singled out (the US and UK) also are, coincidentally, the two nations leading the efforts to change the course of the ME via Iraq. What a joke. Get this line:

They’re poorer, get on worse with their parents and take more risks.

Since when is taking more risks a negative? Oh, yeah. If you are a socialist that would be a bad thing.

    “This means that British children are more likely to use drugs, drink alcohol or be sexually active than children elsewhere.”

    above actual quote from report.

    Shorter Strata* (he who amuses himself with what “conspiracy
    theorists” will make of purported AQ links to Iran….)

    *It’s ok if US and UK youth dive into risky behavior involving sex ,drugs and rock and roll as long as they survive to enlist in the services and get their asses shot at by the unappreciative, unwelcoming Middle Easterners in failed attempts to bring
    “democracy” to them.

    What the hell does that ridiculous comment have to do with the report.

    BTW, Saddam had prisons and rape rooms and torture chambers just for children. He used to drop them out of helicopters to punish their parents. So it is kind of strange to hear a member of the Saddam fan club drag that war into a conversation about nglected children.

  3. Terrye says:

    As far as risk is concerned, American children are not as at risk as are children who are preyed upon by socalled peacekeepers from the UN who force poor children to exchange sex for food.

    Terrye you’re an Israel-first NITWIT deluded into believing you’re a “patriot.” STRATA brought the entire Mideast,inclusive of the Iraq War into the discussion, and if you read his post more carefully you will see how.

    As for the “rape rooms” etc, yes, and the Kuwaiti funded agent
    said Iraq took babies off of incubators when they invaded Kuwait,
    to drum up US war support before the first phase of the “mother of all-failed wars” for the US.

    I would bet you any “disadvantaged” family in any country in the western hemisphere south of the Rio Grande would much rather be “disadvantaged” here than in the country in which they currently live.

  6. wiley says:

    I wouldn’t put stock in this report, nor in anything under the UN banner (exhibit A is GW hype).

  7. BarbaraS says:

    This is just another US bashing and deserves no comment whatsoever.

  8. lassoingtruth says:

    Strata only commented on it to get the “democracy in the
    Middle East” angle injected again. Cheney-instilled reaction.

  9. Bikerken says:

    So what is the definition of being a disadvantaged child in America?

    Having to get the small flat screen TV instead of the large one. The kids TV is usually real small, but they can still play their Xbox on it.

    You buy macaroni and cheese in the tall thin box instead of the short fat box.

    Your family can’t afford the $150 dollar sneakers so you have to settle with the $35 dollar sneakers instead.

    You can only get enough food stamps to eat steak twice a week.

    Your school is so poor that they bus you twelve miles across town to go to a school that rich kids parents pay for.

    Any crime you commit will instantly bring up your disadvantaged childhood as a reason for your actions.

    I could go on but it would only tick me off.

    The same people that think the USA is responsible for all the evil in the world obviously put this jewel together
