Single mother of 15: Someone’s got to pay!

Today’s entitlement mentality of the day comes courtesy of The Other McCain. If you ever need an example to show to someone of just how entrenched we are into a welfare state, just show them this article. It features an unemployed single mother of a whopping fifteen children, from three different men. One baby-daddy is a crack dealer in prison. She’s upset because she’s homeless, and as she says… someone has to pay!!
The din of Room 168 at the Economy Inn on East Busch Boulevard occasionally drowned out conversation.
Twelve children ranging in age from 6 months to 11 years old spent the past week there, scrambling across the floor, bouncing on beds. Their eyes filled with resignation Wednesday morning; they were hungry and dirty – wearing the same clothes as the day before and the day before that.
Angel Adams, the mom, was asking for help as the children rambled about the room. She was homeless and hopeless, she said. A relative paid for the motel room for a week, and after that, who knows. Her fiance is in prison.
With measured indignation, Adams said somebody owes her.
… The lifelong Tampa resident said she wants justice from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office child protection team that took her kids away from her two years ago and from Hillsborough Kids Inc., which got her kids back six months ago.
“What do I do?” she said earlier in the day. “I have no answers. My family has been railroaded. Someone needs to pay.
“Nobody’s helping me.”
She doesn’t trust the system, she said. It was a system that despite all the good intentions landed her in the motel, in this fix, in the first place, she said.
Wednesday morning, in the dingy motel room, Adams handed out a list of her children’s names and ages. Across the top: “Three fathers. One Mother. Fifteen Children.”
One of them, a 1-year-old, is named John the Baptist Brown.
Ten of the children, she said, were fathered by Garry Brown, currently serving a five-year prison term for dealing cocaine. A sampling of his kids’ names: Garry Nesha, Garry Brown Jr., Garry Lethia, Garryiell and Garry Rick.
… The 12 kids are the youngest of 15, she said. Three have “aged out,” meaning they have turned 18 and are on their own, no longer a part of the child welfare system.
“I can have as many as I want to,” she said. All her kids, she added, “are gifts from God.”
The 37-year-old mother doesn’t work. “This is my work,” she said, gesturing toward the bunch. “I do this all by myself. I don’t know what I’m going to do. This is a revolving door going nowhere.”
She said her problems began two years ago when Brown was arrested and the money dried up. Right after that her children were taken away and put in foster care over allegations of neglect, she said.
Hillsborough Kids stepped in and took the case, eventually returning the children to her and Brown. Before Christmas, the couple took a two-bedroom apartment off North Boulevard near Columbus Drive.
Hillsborough Kids agreed to pay the $800 a month rent after caseworkers inspected the apartment and, although finding it a bit cramped, said it was OK.
The landlord, who evicted Adams in March, thought differently.
Sandy Chiellini said Adams showed up to sign the lease with Brown and one child. She didn’t learn until later that there were 11 other children. There were problems with plumbing; downstairs tenants were flooded. There was noise. Occasional visits from police. Other tenants were complaining. Some left.
She said Adams’ apartment was trashed. Clothes and food were scattered everywhere. Screens were broken out. Chiellini began eviction proceedings. Adams failed to show up for two eviction hearings.
As per usual with welfare rats, Adams doesn’t think any of this is her fault. As she said herself, she can have as many kids as she wants, and it’s someone else’s responsibility to pay. She’s owed something, simply for being an irresponsible bottom-feeder.
What makes me angry is that her kids were given back to her and that she’s practically being encouraged to keep on living irresponsibly. And meanwhile, her poor children are being punished for her bad choices. There’s no reason for an unemployed single mother to have fifteen children. None! Despite what eco-moonbats and feminists may have us believe, we actually are smarter than animals, and are capable of self-restraint when it comes to sex. If you don’t have a job or a husband and you’ve already got kids, then don’t. have. sex.
Oh, but wait. She said everything was just fine until her baby-daddy was sent to prison. I guess dealing cocaine was pretty lucrative. And now that authorities took away her meal ticket, she wants them to step in and take care of her — on our dime, of course. It’s simultaneously sad and scary.
Here we see the results of the government taking over the daddy role in American families. If there was ever a case for forced sterilization, this would be it.
