Charity begins at home, every american is in survival mode as a socialist. We can't even provide for our selves let alone take in strangers to feed and care for. The Utah government should have asked how to deal with socialism and charity before they go around and make life worse for the downtrodden.

The government goes around telling children they are not allowed to be free thinking and self serving then rip them from their homes and families with at least some security then expect an impoverished socialist society to care for them?

Well uncle, socialism and sympathy are not sustainable anymore, we are all in need that government can't provide so these lads are now the property of the state to care for. That not being an acceptable solution, then maybe government and advocate need to slow down and curtail actions based on sympathy to relocate non sustainable charity.

Sympathy won't sustain "at risk children?" snatched from a secure life so government is obligated to care for them and stop asking the impossible from people who don't have the means to deprive their own family to sympathize about other peoples misfortunes by socialized government.

"Sympathy won't sustain "at risk children?" snatched from a secure life "

Did you read the article? Kids are either being kicked out or leave on their own.
Regardless, few would describe their life as worse or their home "secure"

Are you really from Taylorsville, or Short Creek?

Hey, read the article. No one was "snatched." These kids were forced out.

A few kind souls are needed to help these poor kids learn a little about how good families work, get an education and get a start in life.

That comment was either a plug for being Pro-Polygamy,
so anti-Government that showing normal common sense no longer is working.
