I am sick as a dog, likely with the plague.
That’s not necessarily an official diagnosis… I just feel quite plague-ish.
I believe my head is going to explode off my very shoulders, and I have spent my entire year’s worth of Health Savings money on Thera-Flu.
All in the past 24 hours.
With that being said, I’m cranky as hell, so you may have to bear with me a little on this post.
I know, I know, how is that different from what you have to do when reading any of my other posts?
… But whatever.
I keep hearing about this psycho woman in California who recently gave birth to octuplets– and she was already a mom of six before her mentally ill ass got pregnant with 8 more.
This woman has 14 kids.
Initially when I heard the story I just thought she was crazy.
Nothing more, nothing less.
I mean, damn.
That’s a lot of chil’ren runnin’ around.
I know how cuckoo my own mom was there for a while… and she only (I use that term loosely) raised 5 of us rugrats.
She really is a saint.
Back to the crazy lady.
As more and more details begin spilling out, I realize this woman isn’t just a little nutty, she needs to be locked up somewhere for the criminally insane.
This lady… this mother of 14… is on welfare ($490 a month in food stamps), is unemployed, lives at home with her own momma, and currently collects disability payments for 3 of her oldest children.
It seems she was injured at her last job- something about working in a mental hospital (fitting, right?) when a riot broke out- she suffered some physical injuries, and quite a few mental ones as well.
Her company, as a result, payed her around $160,000.
Money that was spent on invitro.
Money that now, of course, is gone.
She says she decided to have all these babies as some sort of weird warped way (obviously I’m paraphrasing here) to overcome what she claims was a dysfunctional and unloving upbringing of her own.
So not only is the woman off her damn rocker, but she’s an ungrateful little shit as well, considering she’s living with the woman who raised her crazy ass to begin with.
Her childhood, was apparently horrible enough that she needs 14 fuckin’ kids to compensate for it… but not so horrible that she’s above going back home to momma when her broke butt needs help.
What I really want to ask is who the hell is going to pay for the medical care of those 8 premature babies that are still in the hospital? Who the hell is going to support all those daggone kids period?
Certainly not this woman.
That burden, like so many others, will continue to be carried by taxpayers.
Meanwhile, her state of residence (again- California), is dealing with a $62 billion budget shortfall.
Apparently, she believes her only responsibility was to bring these poor babies into the world… now that she’s done that much, it’s everyone else’s job to figure out how in God’s name she’s supposed to actually support them.
What a selfish beast.
For those who are interested, I hear she set up a website to accept donations.
Checks and credit cards are approved forms of payment.
