It was hard to look at this video seeing those children in such circumstances. While it's easy to say she should not have made all of these kids with irresponsible fathers, the reality is that the children are here. They did not ask to be brought into this world under these conditions. That is the heartbreaking part.
The frustration comes with the mother. How long ago did her family say: "Damn girl, you need to stop making these babies, I can't help you any more." So, since we no longer expect families to step in, we have now set up a system where "the government" does it all. Families don't need to stick together because the government will take care of it.
Here's a question I often have for people who are advocates of big government: If you don't want to take care of your sorry cousin, why the heck do you think the rest of society wants to do it?This woman's insistence that "somebody" must face consequences for not providing for the her and her children is frustrating. She feels completely entitled. She shows near contempt for charity: "some people around her have given some food." Yes, dammit. That is how people are. They will help. Show some appreciation.
This is one of the more mind-boggling things about leftist policies. The leftists have indoctrinated generations of people to believe that "the government" has the capacity to do almost anything. AGAIN, the government does not have any money; it only takes money from individuals. Government's role is not to be a charitable organization.
So, this is where people who decide to be charitable can step in and assist her. Her attitude should be: "I have had a difficult life and things are especially tough now. I would appreciate any help people could give me." Were that the attitude, people would help her.
We now have a society where the government seizes and redistributes property based on the dictates of people who purport to be our moral and intellectual betters. Most people are not opposed to helping people who are struggling. We cannot survive as a society where people have no choice about how they help others, a society where there are no consequences at all to aberrant behavior.
We must have a cultural shift in this country. We must begin to promote things that just make sense. Don't even use the term family values. Heck, you can put what you want where you want, just be responsible for yourself. Mind your own business but take care of your own business.
Enough of politicians who pretend to be superior while they are only seeking. Do you really think someone like Nancy Pelosi gives a rip about this woman or these children more than anyone else? If you are dumb enough to believe that, then you are part of the problem.
I could have written this 50 different ways. There's so much I could say on it but I just let these thoughts fly.
I need to go breathe some fresh air. UPDATE: This person has continued to breed and how has 16, yes 16! children. She's facing trial for assaulting a police officer. God help us all. This is what happens when people do not have to face the consequences of their decisions and behavior.
