The Entitlement Generation -- "Somebody Needs to Pay for All My Children"

By Kay Daly

Yes, Angel, somebody does.  Take a good long look in the mirror.

Gone are the days of shame for having children out of wedlock, taking responsibility, getting married, being gainfully employed, getting your housing situation ready and then having children.   How passe!  Instead, we have ushered in an era where "anything goes" is celebrated.  Have a kid, then get married.  Or don't get married.  What difference could it possibly make?

The facts could not be more painfully clear what lies ahead for these 15 children of this selfishly entitled woman is more likely than not a continuation of the the same.   Having children out of wedlock, by multiple partners and expecting "someone else to pay for them" is now the norm rather than the exception.  And with each passing generation, it gets progressively worse.

This sense of entitlement could only have been born out of the tragically misguided intentions of the "War on Poverty" enacted by President Lyndon B. Johnson administration.  The unintended casualties of the "War on Poverty" include the nuclear family, fatherhood, stay at home moms (who actually stay at home for the children, not a check), marriage, shame, tradition, judgment, responsibility, modesty, work ethic, ambition, goals, career planning, self-determination, independence, educational attainment, pride, joy and self-worth.  The very underpinnings of the American Dream -- the notion that any child can become anything in this nation that the child has the ability, talent, work ethic and desire to work hard to obtain, has been tossed aside for the shackles and hopelessness of a dead-end government check only obtained by "gaming the system."

Looking into the faces of those children is tragic.  No shoes, no food, no home, a mother more concerned with playing "welfare roulette" than being a mother.  From the War on Poverty to the Entitlement Generation in one short step.  Good going, liberals.  So much damage done in so little time.  Ironically, it is the one thing the bureaucracy (created by and in for the dissemination of all things liberal) has been very efficient at -- destruction.    Of the family, capitalism, the educational system, the American Dream, decency, the culture, take your pick.

And this is what we are left with.

    I saw this video of the mother and her fifteen children on another website, and it was pathetic, as the kids didn’t even have food to eat let alone clothes, and she was demanding that someone pay the expenses for herself and her kids. 

    She spoke as though it was everyone else’s responsibility to support her and her children, and the help that she did receive from others didn’t seem to be enough.  It’s totally incredible how some people expect others to not only keep them but to pay for their own irresponsible lifestyle.  Hopefully these kids will find a better home with people that are able to care for them.

      The 3 “babydaddies” she mentioned should be held accountable and required to support their kids. The situation is not going to improve as long as our liberal government continues the nanny state. If the multi-millionaire politicians want to support these handout programs, let them do it rather than forcing the taxpayers to ante up.

      Quite true.  Further, I heard this tape on one of the radio talk shows, and shortly after she says someone has to pay for “all my children,” she goes on to add, “Someone has to be held accountable.”  Well, I agree with her there, starting with her and the fathers.

    This particular case points out the minority mentality—they have learned how to milk the system.  Our liberal politicians have set the pace by establishing one entitlement program after another aimed at these very people with the expectation that responsible tax-paying Americans with common sense will foot the bill.

    On the other end of the spectrum, we have the Duggar family—white middle class—expecting their 19th child and awaiting the arrival of their first grandchild.  And, somehow, I don’t think all of these children are being supported by household income.

    So, we have stupidity and willful stupidity being encouraged by an equally stupid government bureaucracy.  These people are not victims—they’re morons—and they need to be allowed to deal with the consequences of their own willful actions.  The government, likewise, needs to stop dangling carrots in front of them and stop rewarding them for being irresponsible.

      The Duggars DO take care of their family by themselves.  They have several very successful businesses that they earn their living from.  They are also not in any debt whatsoever. 

      This woman with the 15 kids needs to get a tubal ligation, keep her legs closed, and GET A JOB!  Most of those kids are old enough to be in school, so she should have no excuse why she can’t go out and get a job. 

      I agree with you that the gov’t needs to stop dangling the carrots in front of them and rewarding them for irresponsibility.  It’s one thing to need TEMPORARY help when hard times falls on you because of illness, disability (real disability), or temporary unemployment, but this long-term all your life welfare HAS TO STOP.  Since the Great Society was implemented “to combat poverty,” the poverty level has barely dropped at all.  Certainly not enough to justify its continuance. 

      I have NO problem with helping people out who are truly disabled or who have to stay home taking care of a truly disabled kid or spouse who needs 24/7 care.  They are in their circumstance due to no fault of their own.  I can handle that.  What I DO have a problem with is supporting people who just don’t want to work, live better than I do, have the nicer toys than I do, eat filet mignon and seafood on my dime, and a brand new car – all while living off MY taxes for which I worked hard, long, arduous hours in order to pay.  That HAS to stop!

      Good to know that the Duggars are self-supporting; however, I do question the sensibility of having 19 children—even if you can support them.  I’ll guarantee you they are an IRS target at tax time—but just the overall expense of raising one child and multiplying that by 19—I really question the rationale.

      I don’t like to assume, but in this case it might be safe; I assume you’re refering to the family in one of those “reality” shows.  I’m not saying you’re wrong, but do you have evidence that family is getting public assistance?  Never seen the show, so I’ll repeat I’m not saying you’re wrong.  Does the show indicate anything about their income, or what he or she does for a living?

    Part of the problem with so many broken families which become reliant on the system of entitlement programs is pointed out by Ron Paul, as the failed war on drugs makes it impossible for those who might have a problem to come forward for real help without being criminalized for non-violent behavior.  This single policy alone breaks up tens of thousands of homes across the nation.

    No easy answers since the kids didn’t ask to come into such a screwed up environment.  But saying that having them was
    “Godls will,” is akin to playing in the traffic on the Interstate and saying it was “God’s will that I got run over by a semi.”

      How about this for an easy answer:

      Do a paternity test to find out who the mother of all those kids is and what she is doing to have them. That is a mystery to someone.

      I’ll bet there are solutions available to assist folks to understand there are consequences to those actions…why is it that other civilizations and generations could teach their kids not to fornicate, and we can’t?

      Maybe we are teaching them that they can’t not…being animals and all.

      Texas does require a paternity test for women who apply for public assistance. I worked in a small hospital lab at the time they started requiring it. Sometimes it took several tries to find the real babydaddy (much like on Maury Povich’s show). The reason the state requires paternity testing is to force these babydaddies to pay child support. Of course, most of them probably don’t have jobs themselves.

This abuse of the tax payers has gone on for as long as welfare has been available and will continue for as long as it takes until we wake up and smell the coffee. That miserable excuse for a mother and all the deadbeat daddies are Dimocrap voters. So too will be the fifteen children and each of their pathetic brood of fifteen.

    A really a sick indication of the absurdity of liberalism run amok was a comment credited to a Guardian reporter criticizing a friend of Prince William who was a successful pro-athlete and married for having four children. To this reporter it was supposed to be irresponsible for this couple to have four children in an overpopulated world, but it was seemingly all right for a poor unmarried mother to have a countless number who society has to pay for under Britain’s social programs. To me if you can afford to have four or more and not shift the costs to others and raise them to be contributing citizens of British society, more power to you and shame on the Guardian reporter for not having a better sense of history, economics and reality.
    The tipping point in any society’s collapse is when those who create and produce are outnumbered by those who take from society. In recent years it has been groups on both ends of the economic spectrum who have become takers.

      My brother has 8 kids and does not receive a dime of public support. He doesn’t even use the “free” public school system. If you can afford them, I don’t have a problem with you having as many kids as you want. Lord knows the responsible people need to be doing a better job of replacing themselves. If you have ever seen the film, “Idiocracy” you know what I am talking about.

      Your statement is correct for a very limited population of unwed mothers.  In this instance this woman is more likely to be gaming the system for additional government money for EACH kid she adds to the brood.

    Perhaps Oprah should step up to the plate and support this unwed-mother and her 15 kids. Why not, she supports politicians who support this type of irresponsible behavior! Or perhaps Angelina & Brad should adopt these kids instead of traveling to Africa to look for black babies, we have plenty of them here they could have. I guess for the Hollywood crowd, that’s just not as fashionable as importing them from 3rd world countries. What’s really sad is this woman is typical of what you would find in any intercity ghetto in America. Perhaps China’s national policy of forced sterilization after one baby is not all that barbaric after all. A woman having 15 kids with multiple men, knowing she can’t support them, is barbaric.

      I think a lot of these women would figure out how to properly use birth control or keep their legs closed if the free money dried up. The more kids you have, the more money you get. Welfare reform during the Clinton years (with Republican majorities in house and senate) solved some of the problem. Unfortunately, Obama has used the economic crisis to undo most of those reforms.

    A “welfare mama” with 15 kids who have no shoes and no food? She’s either a liar or a fool. My guess is, she’s a liar.

    The least she could POSSIBLY be getting for those kids is about $100/month each (MUCH more if she moves to California,) which means a minimum of $1,500/month cold cash. Plus free breakfast and lunch for each of them at the local school. Plus free rent and free-or-reduced utilities. Plus food stamps. Plus Medicaid. Plus free child-care. Plus “Aid For Dependent Children.” Plus… Most of us doen’t even know what else.

    “Who’s gonna take care of them?” Them same people who are taking care of them now: The taxpayer.

    Kay Daly’s comments are spot on. And it needs to STOP! When we took “Godly judgement” (aka SHAME) out of the equation, our entire society fell apart.

      You said a mouthful!  VERY true!  If she is getting that much assistance, what is it all going for if these kids are shoeless and hungry?  Perhaps the reason why she had her kids taken away has to do with drugs, or maybe she is giving the money to boyfriends, thereby neglecting her kids.  Either way, the kids hopefully now have a chance in the foster care system to perhaps be raised with some values and with become productive citizens.

    I recall that a few years ago four black women were arrested for
    severe neglect of their children.Those four women had
    seventeen children between them and the poor kids were living
    in squalor and eating dog food(!) Many people were angry and
    shocked by this,but nobody pointed out that although the children
    were underweight…their mothers were NOT. I am sure that the
    combined weight of those four women would tip the scales at
    seven hundred pounds…at least.

    As for certain special interests groups the woman with fifteen kids
    is a democrat’s dream come true.If she and her offspring aren’t
    paraded around as to what is wrong with the ‘uneven distribution
    of wealth’ in this country, I for one will be very surprised.

    On Dr.Phil there was a similar discussion about black men ‘flicking
    their bick’ and then refusing to take responsibility for their actions.
    I liked what one guest said.She said,that in North Carolina (I think),
    they have a law that states if a man owes more than 100,000 in 
    child support he has two choices, Either pay the money owed or get
    a vasectomy! lol.

    And what is the lesson learned by these children of shame?. They learn to pull the same ropes as does the teacher, in this case being the mothers and Fathers of no responsibility. The fathers of these children should be tracked down, made to support their reproductive habits, and take care of what the tax payers are now footing the bill for. In these cases, I believe forced sterilization should be paramount on the books. As long as the Government looks the other way, these families will continue to thrive off the dimes of the taxpayers hard labor. The responsibility rests with the lack of responsibility of the loafer Mothers and Fathers who through their complete ignorance or lack of caring, allow this to happen while many types of birth control are offered, with most quite resonable. I would much rather pay on my dime, for the attainment and use of these methods than to pay for the lack of responsibility, imorality, and completely stupid acts by choice these Mothers and Fathers make to satisfy their animal instincts and primal urges.
    I say if they are on welfare or any type of public assistance, they should be made to go through job training programs, to do anything necessary to attempt to pay their own way. I also believe they shoud have to go through drug screening before being allowed to receive any assistance, and mandantory monthly, or at least random testing throughout the need for that assistance. I read a article the other day telling of a couple who apparently dropped a receipt outside a grocery store which clearly showed that food stamps were used to buy steaks and lobsters. These handouts should be only for the staples, and necessities for the children who are the unfortunates of the stupidity and irresponsibility of the welfare parents. My wife and myself are both disabled, and can barely live on what we receive. We would both rather be working, but unfortunately my wife has MS, and I have spinal deteriorations for which I have undergone 3 expensive and painful surgeries, had 2 strokes, a fib, along with lymphoma. We do not apply for public assistance, we both live off our Social Security and have never applied for food stamps, utility aide, mortage assistance, or any other assistance. We eat very inexpensively at home, keep lights and other electrical appliances used at a bare minimum, limit our shower times, and wear coats in our house to keep warm and from running up the gas bills. If we can live on such a small income, so can those who abuse the system. It is a matter of whither or not they prefer to, or until they are made to stand the load they inflict upon themselves, and very often, the taxpayers.
    America has gone from being the place everyone looked up to and wanted to be, to the place where everyone wants to be, but now supported by it instead of being a working or Patriotic part of it.
    We are in very deep trouble here, and Christians and all other faiths need to pray that we gain a leadership which can remove the great divide which has been placed upon us by the current Government. Pray that we are able to accomplish this before that opportunity is completely removed. We cannot stand another 4 years of the King/Dictator wannab in the Whitehouse. If you are not for us, then you are against us. The most important election in the History of America, I believe, is just a bit over a year away. Before that time, we have to decide whither we want to remain free, or be ruled over and bankrupt. I truely believe this is our choice. Please choose wisely, and pray diligently for the right choices to be made. Our futures, our Cildrens futures, Our Grandchildren, their Children and Grand Childrens futures are at stake. Believe it.
