Judge: freaking morons should not be allowed to procreate [l]

Once again, New York proves it's just better than everywhere else.  Around a month ago, a NY judge ordered a couple not to have any more kids.  I've long been in favor of not allowing incompetent idiots to breed, but then again, I'm also in favor of making it legal to kill tourists, so take that for what it's worth.

Judge Orders N.Y. Couple Not to Conceive

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A couple has been ordered not to conceive any more children until the ones they already have are no longer in foster care.


A civil liberties advocate said the court ruling unsealed Friday was ``blatantly unconstitutional.''

Monroe County Family Court Judge Marilyn O'Connor ruled March 31 that both parents ``should not have yet another child which must be cared for at public expense.''

``The facts of this case and the reality of parenthood cry out for family planning education,'' she ruled. ``This court believes the constitutional right to have children is overcome when society must bear the financial and everyday burden of care.''

The judge is not forcing contraception on the couple nor is she requiring the mother to get an abortion should she become pregnant. The couple may choose to be sterilized at no cost to them, O'Connor ruled.

TV goths [t]

Note to tv producers:

- Goths don't (all) wear fake fangs.
- Goths don't (all) greet each other with their blood type.
- Goths don't (all) lick each other hello (although that concept has some merit).
- Goths don't all make up ludicrous names for themselves like Alucardo, Prince of Shadows.  (Well... ok, maybe they do, nevermind.)
- Goths aren't all brooding loners and losers who turn to the scene as it's the only one pathetic enough to accept losers like that.  (I said ALL!)
