That's what Nadya "Octomom" Suleman is finding out -- the hard way.

After gaining notoriety for going full-term with eight children, to add to the six children she already had, the unmarried Suleman is now almost completely broke, and ready to go on welfare, RadarOnline.com reports.

how did this happen? she held so much promise?
It is always a good idea to have 16 babies with no visible means of support.

I think she had “Obama” tatooed in each of her 14 illigitimate kids’ butts...

I thought she was already living off the taxpayers.

On a previous thread - the consensus was that the moronic impregnator should be responsible for the childrens’ living expenses.

Oxymom was his lab rat and he should fork up the funds to maintain the lives of her and those poor children.

There should be laws against these procedures - this debacle has never been about privacy - it’s about the common welfare of these poor test tube babies!!!!!!!!!!

“....the moronic impregnator should be responsible for the childrens’ living expenses.”

That works for me.

She had her proverbial “fifteen minutes of fame” and now reality has hit. From what I’ve seen of her, she is certifiable “ditz.” Lets just hope, for her sake, that those who promoted her will look after her well-being. Very little chance of that, though. Liberals, and particularly those who exist at the lower levels, live only for the moment.

Put the children in foster care, and put this skank to work.

Amen to that. It is not right that the rest of us are obligated to pay for the costs of children that we did not go through the fun of making.

How much can she make off the public trough with 16 kids?

Last I saw didn’t she rent some huge house and wasn’t she driving around in a Range Rover or something similar?

“Put the children in foster care, and put this skank to work.”

Best idea yet...actually she should give them up for adoption. With her mentality I can’t imagine how those children will turn out. She just produced 16 humans that are the responsibility of the government. The people who take in these foster kids get have to get paid.

Wonder what a shrink would say about her?

Yeah this story is somewhat tangential to my concern with social conservatism as well.

I suppose I support the right of a person to have any many children as they wish, by whatever means available, so long as they have no recourse whatsoever to obtain support for those offspring through the confiscated earnings (taxes) of other people who had no say in the reproductive decision.

This is a HUGE pet-peeve of mine. I personally know a woman who is currently collecting "disability" from Social Security, and she has no physical disability whatsoever - she in fact DOES work - just enough to stay under the threshhold where she can still collect SSDI. In fact, she's actively trying to have another baby, in her 40s, for the sole reason of collecting more SSDI benefits for an additional dependent.

It makes my blood boil.

How so?

Did you want to abort the children, or is it that you want to provide octomom government care?

Social conservatives would never have provided the way for her to get her litter of 8, and if she can't feed them, they would have them adopted by people who can.

No babies killed, problem solved.

apparently the reality TV market is already tapped out for shows about dysfunctional people trying to raise broods of innocent children and get paid for it

The Gosselins are two emotional train wrecks and the Masche saga is a train wreck in slow motion

I want to jump through the screen and smack Brian everytime I watch him throwing temper tantrums at his wife and kids

There was an obit going around in an email recently of a 21 year old "entrepeneuer" in New Orleans who was gunned down in a drive by shooting. The obit said he had 13 kids. His siblings had similar numbers of kids. Whoever put the email together took the time to figure out how much money this guy was "entitled" to with all those kids. The total was $156,000/year. Scale it up to 16 and you'll have your answer.

Your gubmint at work.....

Social conservatism would have also never allowed a doctor who did such a thing to continue to legally practice medicine.

In a class with a woman who is a nurse in Florida (a distance learning class), has overhead the following conversation many times between welfare moms “Well, when I have this baby I will get a raise”. The nurse suggests that this type of thinking is not uncommon. Another result of the 1965 War on Poverty.

Wasn't that supposed to have been ended by the Welfare Reform Law enacted under Clinton?

Yes it was suppose to have ended. It sounds like it did not. I also understand that Obama has quietly dismantled some parts of the Clinton reforms.

The way it should work, If you are already on wellfare, and become pregnant, you loose all benefits. Because if you can afford to raise a family, then you shouldn’t be on wellfare! And “accidental” is not an excuse because we have known what causes pregnancy for decades now. (sarc).
