Every time I hear the story about the lady who gave birth to octuplets, I picture a bunch of green alien-like babies running around a house somewhere in California where she lives. Sure its a very rare feat, but the way they speak about it in the media sure makes it seem to be something of another world.

I'm guessing its because of the fact that she already had 6 kids and single. Yeah, I guess that's it. But I also think that the fact that she's of middle eastern decent has something to do with it. You know its pretty much taboo for a minority to have multiple children these days.

When I heard the story after it broke, I can honestly say I thought it was a White woman. I'm not gonna lie, that was my initial thought. Not saying that minorities don't partake of the in vetro procedure, but it was just something I would expect of a White couple desperate to have kids. I mean after all, there are couples (mainly White) who spend large amounts of money to adopt children from foreign countries. And if they go that far for kids, why wouldn't they do it the way this lady did it? But this woman was already a single mom. And she has been catching hell for her decision to have more kids. Now she's being bastardized in the court of public opinion, as being a Welfare queen; a baby making machine content on living off of the system. And the fact of her being a minority sure as hell doesn't help matters either.

Isn't this America? The country where one is free to do whatever he or she pleases as long as its within the law? What ever happened to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? I mean if this lady wants to have 14 kids while being a single mom she can. Last time I checked, there were no laws limiting the number of kids one can have. This is America, Not China! So yeah, the idea of being single and having that many kids sounds kinda crazy, but hey, at least she planned it.

There are women running around in everyday life single with multiple children who were unplanned. Hell, some of them don't even have a clue as to who the fuck fathered their children. And because of that, Maury Povich is rich and he's not going anywhere while we laugh at those dysfunctional fools. Oh and lets not talk about the White high school teenagers in Massachusetts who made a pact to get pregnant before they graduate from school last year.

Having 14 kids is in fact an uncommon thing to see these days. But I know that having large families, though pretty much a thing of the past, it still happens. What's funny is how when it happens in this day and age, its often celebrated. They usually get a TV show on TLC or some shit like that. College trust funds and the whole nine yards are thrown at them. Will this woman receive any such attention? Probably not, but then again she will. Yeah she'll get some stuff from opportunistic capitalists I'm sure. But she will forever be looked at as the Welfare Queen, and ridiculed by many. Yup, she's gonna be looked at the way we look at the crazy cat lady in the neighborhood.

Why is it her decision isn't celebrated. How come she doesn't have her own website like the beloved Duggar family? You know, they're the really nice and clean WHITE Christian family who have 17 kids...and counting, as the show on TV is called? Yup, that's them pictured above. How come we don't hear about the other people in their family who have to get 2nd jobs to help them out? How come we never heard whether they had to file bankruptcy like the California Welfare Queen lady?

Why are all these ubber conservatives pundits up in arms about her? It would seem that the people who are pro-life would be happy about this since she was offered the opportunity to abort selectively but refused. Is it because she's of middle eastern decent? Are they afraid of her being the backlash for the Iraqi invasion? You know, her raising all those terrorists on US soil and all? Why is this single mom being looked at as insane while nobody says anything about the Duggars deciding to use Mrs. Duggars vagina as a clown car. Oh well, I guess it all comes down to the old saying: when you're white, you're right.

Rippa it's a double standard. I am so tired of seeing all those Duggars youngsters looking like they are getting ready for a KKK rally. Those Duggars are getting help and support from some were.

I remember when having quintuplets would bring gifts worth millions of dollars, scholarships, and even new homes for the families.

The children were offered lucrative contracts to advertise various products. Photos of them sold for a bundle. Now, this is the first set of "HEALTHY OCTUPLETS" in history, and all their mother is getting is grief! My! how the world has changed!
Hell! who is ready or prepared to care for that many children or pay the bills, much less save for college.

That's were neighbors, friends, and family stepped in to help, working regular shifts. Without the gifts, they would have all been on Welfare. What makes this woman so different?

Why is nobody talking about her network of support? Why aren’t we hearing that gifts are arriving by the truckload? Were is Oprah? and other wealthy celebrities, Gerber, Fisher-Price, etc., eager to use their millions to ensure a good life for them? Why has the mother been judged by the press, and threatened with legal troubles? I’m sure she’ll have Child Protective Services breathing down her neck every minute of her life.

@JJBROCK: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I've been literally arguing this point for two days now on another forum but very few people get it.

Kit (Keep It Trill) said...

Amen! That's a great friggin' post with fantastic points. It should run as a commentary in the LA Times.

@Mista Jaycee: Sometimes I run out of my meds man, and voila! You folks are subjected to my demented way of thinking.

@Torrence: Say that shit again family! The lack of knowledge of the constitution has led to much of US falling victim to the system. Thankfully there are watchdog groups who get much hate for what they do.

@Blak Chik: You too bougie to babysit...LOL. I feel you tho, my house os too full as is.

@Kit: Thanks for the props. If only people wuld take me seriously to get paid for this shit...LOL...things would be seriously kinda nice and I might even have to sellout a lil bit.

I actually agree with everyone who says she is nuts. Anyone who has plastic surgery to look like a celebrity while on welfare and says that shes trying to fill a hole in her life is nut. The Duggars are nuts too. Both families are gluttonous. White, black or middle eastern having a little of pups is ridiculous.
