Let me guess... they were trying again for a girl and got this double-bonus instead.

Would they have stopped at 2 kids if one had been a girl? Its sad but if letting parents select for gender will in the end reduce total population, I'm beginning to be all for it.

/& those two are not going to be little, cute, and relatively easy to handle forever... A woman who works at my local municipality had a cute little 'Downs' son many years ago. Now the guy is huge, outweighs her and is depressingly hard to handle.
I see her hanging around long after her work-day is over; I strongly suspect she hates going home. Sad.

stop having crotch fruit.  how selfish of them to burden society with identical wastes of resources that will never positively contribute, just drain drain drain.

the state should have mandated an abobo for her, especially since she has 3 kids already.

I can also count to potato.  End Socialism.

xaldin: Inclined to agree. There's simply no point to maintain them from a society standpoint. Back in the day the parents would have already drowned them.


I've noticed that tards, after some initial help getting started usually earn their keep and don't cause trouble.  I can't say the same about a lot of 'normal' people.

Tard + $60,000 worth of special education -- works the register, can count change. Only employee that can be trusted with the deep fat fryer.
Precious Snowflake + $60,000 art school -- works the register, can't count change or hit the 'no mayo button'

It was a more humane time back then. We would get the suffering over quickly. Now we drag it out for decades under the premise that life is sacred or some other such bullshiat.

Matthew Keene: This is what the state should be willing to pay for for these kids. Otherwise, you are on your own.

I can count to potato shops

Stupid English socialized medicine!!!!

Dumbasses, you already have three kids, and you're old, so why did you get pregnant again?

/3 is the number of the counting, and the number of the count shall be 3


What about mentioning that these people will never contribute to society and are a drain on our already stretched resources?

Odd. FWIW, though, the mother isn't quite right about them being assessed separately rather than as twins - the caseworker can consider whether the resources being used for one child can be shared (nobody needs two disabled ramps, for example) as part of their assessment.

nitefallz: Are the parents brother and sister or something?  All the kids have severe medical issues.


The identical twin boys have the same issues, I don't see anything indicating the other kids are sick.

I suspect a computer or a claims rep discarded one of the applications as duplicate. It happens. And less likely although still possible, it may be that the system hasn't performed the correct application standardizations.
On the plus side, the U.S. system is currently undergoing or has undergone standardization and uniforms entry and acceptance requirements to prevent exactly this type of thing from occuring, both cases, including review of rejections.
I have two good friends who were twins and orphans. They therefore received U.S. social security orphans benefits. However, the initial application for one was rejected as a duplicate. Then it was discovered that the social security computer database at the time couldn't handle two people with the same birthday, address, and last name and kept throwing up errors. Thus one was classified as adult disabled and the other as an orphan. The one listed as adult disabled got some funny looks when many years later the company he worked for did a background check for security clearance. Good times...
