I fail to see the "news" in this."Live" standups often require a lot of takes. Maybe more than normal for this moran, but I was really expecting some unintentional derpiness on the record. This is just the shiat that gets thrown away even when a seasoned pro is in front of the camera.

They're Quiverfulls. They see birth control as an abomination and children as God's direct blessing upon them. It may or may not play into the sense that they can outbreed nonbelievers and start dictating theocratic politics to the country, but I honestly don't know much about Quiverfulls. Maybe they just think "be fruitful and multiply" was the key thing to take from the Bible.

I usually rail against people for voting "against" a candidate rather than "for" candidate.  That said, I can't wait to vote against this slavering cockasaurus.

Statistically speaking, at least two of their kids are homosexual. They will first try to pray the gay away, and when that doesn't work, the parents will shame the poor kids into committing suicide. No big loss to someone with twenty kids. It'd be like some normal, sane person losing a pet. Pretty upset when it happens but after about a day or two, business as usual throwing the hotdog down the hallway.

I am not and was not judging -- I was asking a serious question.  When someone's behavior is that far from the norm, it's legitimate.  And now, because I asked, I have a real answer.  Rather than your faux outrage.

But do have a nice day.

I guess I've missed your railings. Care to recap?

My votes were originally "for" a candidate, but since Reagan's first term it's been "against" Republicans all the way. I'm a registered Republican so that I can vote against individual Republicans twice, and because in Kansas the Republican primary *is* the election.

That is exactly what is happening. The older siblings care for the younger siblings, while the Mom takes care of the most recent crotchfruit.

The father works, but doesn't make enough money to support all of them, so they get by with donations from like minded idiots and whatever stipend they get from the show. The ONLY good thing I can say about this is they aren't on the public  dole.

And that would be completely voluntary on the part of the church as opposed to coming from the local or federal tax base. I'm OK with this. I fail to see how you can equate voluntary support from the church with being on the public dole.

I think they are idiots, but I don't see any issue with their fellow idiots supporting them as long as it's voluntary.

They're pooling their funds from a smaller segment of the public (their church group) but they are still allowing the public to take care of them.

And that would be completely voluntary on the part of the church as opposed to coming from the local or federal tax base. I'm OK with this. I fail to see how you can equate voluntary support from the church with being on the public dole.

I think they are idiots, but I don't see any issue with their fellow idiots supporting them as long as it's voluntary.


Is it really that voluntary when you're doing it for the kids, whose parents just keep on popping them out?

The My Little Pony Killer: LittleSmitty: The My Little Pony Killer: LittleSmitty: pueblonative: LittleSmitty: pueblonative: I don't care how much this couple makes, exactly how in the hell are you able to parent when you can only give each kid one hour and fifteen minutes out of every day?  I'm suspecting the kids are more parents than the parents.

That is exactly what is happening. The older siblings care for the younger siblings, while the Mom takes care of the most recent crotchfruit.

The father works, but doesn't make enough money to support all of them, so they get by with donations from like minded idiots and whatever stipend they get from the show. The ONLY good thing I can say about this is they aren't on the public  dole.

If their house is considered a church and property tax free then, yes, they are on the dole.  They get out a fee that you and I and everybody responsible enough to own a home have to pay.

IIRC their house is considered a church, so I agree with you there. What I meant was they aren't on Welfare or SNAP or participating in programs usually associated with being on the public dole. I'd call what they are doing with their church/home more of a scam than being on the public dole, but potato/potatoe I guess

As far as I can tell, the people that provide monetary support to them approve of the lifestyle they chose. Now one might call that taking advantage of idiots, but if the idiots approve of said lifestyle and give them money, I call it voluntary. You can frame it as public assistance all you like, but I'm not playing the semantics game with you anymore.

gremlin1: My great-great grandparents had 26 children, of course this was in the early 1800's. I don't believe they would have had so many children in this day and age.


Yeah, but  spreading out 26 kids between 16 great-great grandparents ain't so bad. They were averaging under  4 per couple!    :)

But seriously, we don't live in that world anymore. I'm going out on a limb and guessing they were agrarian? How many infants did they lose in the process? In our current civilization what these Quiverfulls are doing is at best insane and at worst aggravated child abuse. Parents get children taken away for far less than belonging and participating in weird breeding cults.
