"We both just love children and we consider each a blessing from the Lord. I have asked Michelle if she wants more and she said yes, if the Lord wants to give us some she will accept them,"

Someone needs to explain to Cletus that she ain't gettin' preggers from "Immaculate Conception". It's all that farkin' they be doing.

Am I going crazy?

What pic?

You KNOW the parents aren't going to be doing a lot of the parenting--it will be delegated to the other kids. Sadly, I have seen this sort of thing happen many times.

Keerist. biatch, stop farking! We have enough kids in this world.

Check out her hair, jebus, some one tell her the 80's are over for 2 decades now.
Well, apparently all the kids have the same father, thats somethng anyway, and that father isn't an unemployed alco on benefit, so I suppose it's not the worst case senario.

Anyone want to bet that they're Catholic?

YOu know, I hear they found out what causes that....

How long is that 2x4?

Who needs to work when you can have kids and get kept for free by the state
2005-10-13 07:39:47 AM  
Only in Arkansas would "Jim Bob" and "James" be considered 2 different names for kids.
2005-10-13 07:40:14 AM  
This thread is worthless with pics.

I am just trying to imagine the toilet paper they go through.

swdavus: Anyone want to bet that they're Catholic?

I'll take that bet. It's Arkansas; they don't allow Papists.
2005-10-13 07:43:00 AM  
Jinger? I guess that's what name you're stuck with when they run out of "J" names. Poor kid.

le mew: You KNOW the parents aren't going to be doing a lot of the parenting--it will be delegated to the other kids. Sadly, I have seen this sort of thing happen many times.

Well yeah, that's how they used to do it

1. have 60 bazillion kids
2. ????
3. Profit

It's good to see that there are still people that want to be a gaping puppy mill and have no concern for overpopulation.

If she keeps this pace she could be like one of those folks who has their house condemned because it is teaming with livestock.
2005-10-13 07:43:46 AM  
'I am just trying to imagine the toilet paper they go through'

Maybe they could convert to Muslim?

'The use of water to clean oneself is common in the Muslim countries, where people use their left hand to clean themselves, and their right hand for eating'

From wikipedia.

The Lord also pays their bills and raise the kids ?

Care to comment, Mr Hicks?

"But where did this veneration of childbirth come from? I missed that meeting. 'Childbirth is wonderful, childbirth is a miracle.' Wrong. It's no more a miracle than eating food and a turd coming out your ass. You know what a miracle is? A miracle is raising a kid that doesn't talk at a movie theater.

"If it were a miracle then not every nine months any yin yang in the world could drop a litter of these mewling cabbages on the planet. And in case you have not checked the single mom statistics lately the miracle is spreading like wildfire. Hallujeh.

"Trailer parks all over America filling up with little miracles. *Thunk*, *thunk*, *thunk*. 'Look at all my little miracles. Filling up my trailer like a sardine can. Look at them.'

"'You know what would be a little miracle? If I could remember your daddy's name. I guess I'll have to call you Trucker Jr. That's all I remember about your daddy was his fuzzy little pot belly riding on top of me shooting his caffeine ridden semen into my belly to produce my little water head miracle baby child. *Thunk*. There's your brother, Pizza Delivery Boy Jr., *thunk* here's your other brother, *thunk* here's your other brother, Will Work For Food Jr."

She takes attention-whoring to a new height...or all-time low. dumbass.

Oh and this guy is a senator? Fantastic
2005-10-13 07:46:56 AM  
BTW, I think it's a crime to have that many children. At the point where you have a crapload of children, you can't possibly meet all of the emotional needs of those children. While you're busy doing laundry (for 16 kids) and cooking (for 16 kids) and cleaning (for 16 kids), when do you have time for homework? How can you keep track of all of the children? It will be like taking attendance in class for Christ's sake. I think they that rob those children of the attention and emotional support that they deserve. I wouldn't want to be in that family. I would be lost. You know that those older children have to take responsibility for those younger children. She's robbing her older children of the childhood that they deserve. It sounds like a mess. It wouldn't matter if they lived in a mansion, there is only so much of the mother to go around.

And before farkers jump all over me about the dad, I am sure that he is active in their lives but he has to go out and make a living to support all of those children. Imagine how tired he must be. Even if he earns a shiatload of money, he must feel enormous pressure.

I feel sorry for the kids in this mess.
2005-10-13 07:46:56 AM  
if the Lord wants to give us some she will accept them," he said in a telephone interview.

If the Lord is handing kids out, I believe there are some couples who would be happy for just one kid. Maybe the Lord favours couples who have yet to leave the Eighties.

I don't see where the state is "keeping" them. I don't believe the state is supporting them.
2005-10-13 07:47:31 AM  
To infinity, or whatever symbol you're using nowdays, and beyond.

swdavus, I'll take that bet. I believe they are some evangelical protestant sect.
2005-10-13 07:48:18 AM  
I was wondering when she'd bend over and pop out the kid. Really... this lady needs to stop. They'll have enough people for their own little country soon.

From their website:

"Our prayer is that all who view this site will realize that we are ordinary people with our individual weaknesses and imperfections but yet we serve an extraordinary GOD who delights in demonstrating His great power! And He said unto me, my grace is sufficient for thee for my strength is made perfect in weakness, most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 We trust that you will find strength and encouragement from HIM who is "able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask"

I say baptist.
2005-10-13 07:50:22 AM  
Definitely more motivated people than any "sit on ass behind computer and bash other people" fark losers.
2005-10-13 07:50:58 AM  
i bet they are baptist. these people are farking nutjobs!

swdavus: Anyone want to bet that they're Catholic?

No, no, a thousand times no. This is an evangelical Christian family -- in fact, according to a TV show I saw about the Duggans, they and one other ten-plus-kids family have worship services at one of their homes, with the two pariarchs acting as ministers.


I just wonder what's going to happen when Michelle Duggan gets a prolapsed uterus, or serious problems with diabetes. The body just isn't made for being constantly pregnant for 18 years -- her pelvis is quite likely permanently unfused.
2005-10-13 07:52:43 AM  
Wow. That beats out my Grandma-ma, 7 youts in (I think) 13 years. Claims she was a PTA member for longer than anyone. She wasn't quite so into justifying it with the bible though (even though she is babtist). Farmers just had huge families back then.
2005-10-13 07:53:15 AM  
here's something most of you might not actually know. According to my wife, who per her education should know this sort of crap, the fact that she plops the kids out so quickly more or less precludes her from doing any real breast feeding. Reason being, there are natural mechanisms that prevent a woman from being fertile when she's breast feeding (competition of resources, and such).

Would likely also be difficult to breast feed anyway, if you have a bazillion other kids to take care of.

So all those boys were denied boobage. They'll all grow up to be gay (or in love with their sisters).
2005-10-13 07:53:23 AM  
I bet they're Pentecostal; her oldest kids have that same kinda of hair only tied back. Seems like that's an interpretation of Bible scripture - one of you Bible scholars may remember the reference more than I do. I'm not going to embarrass myself this morning.

Anyway, this couple just amazes me just because they're my age and I can't imagine spending almost my whole adult life pregnant. The guy must sell a lot of real estate in order to support that many kids.

If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate!

I seem to be overruled about the family being Catholic. I don't know one way or the other but it seemed like the safe way to go.

/not eating my words yet
//need to see some proof
///went on the website for the family
////still feel sorry for the children
//long live the slashes
2005-10-13 07:55:45 AM  
We had one of these threads when she had the last kid. A few facts here:
a) they're crazy. We all agree
b) They're "respectable white people" with a healthy income, AND they're "christian" of the non-Catholic variety.
c) There was a show on one of the TLC type channels on them. The kids are all homeschooled, all play the violin, girls are only allowed to wear dresses, boys only certain types of shirts etc, they all have chores from cooking to laundry to you name it, and they're all given one of the younger kids as a "buddy" after mom's couple of months.
d) Dad IS republican and a former state senator.

IMHO if they weren't so damn white and xtian, they'd be a "cult." They run their own church with other like-minded crazy people. Watch that show and you'll get utterly freaked. Add that to the thought of almost continually pregnant for 18 years and... *shudder*
2005-10-13 07:56:47 AM  
I knew which family the article would be about before I even clicked the link. I saw a tv segment about them one time and they treat their children like servants.
2005-10-13 07:56:55 AM  
I take the Catholic thingee back. They can't be Catholic. The wife (and all of the girls) have mullets.

/my mistake
2005-10-13 07:56:56 AM  
hey fellows, i bet that would be like throwing a hot dog down a hallway
2005-10-13 07:57:00 AM  
Hell is being reincarnated into this family.
2005-10-13 07:57:33 AM  
I like the comments on that article...

This woman has every right to have 16 children

uh, how are they paying for all the care needed ? Taxpayers ? Then no, she doesn't have the right to have 16 kids.

2005-10-13 07:57:56 AM  
I am 44. I have six kids and for years got comments on "how many" kids we have. "Another one??!!"
Well, in all honesty, the first (and dearest) wasn't planned. We were still at university.
The next three were planned, spaced out, whatever it's called. That made four, a nice number. Until we had a holiday in Spain while my BCP had a holiday at home. Self-control? Why? Spoils the fun. Hence numero five.
I had number six because I wanted to "have just one more before the well ran dry". A selfish reason, but conception is fun.
So I admit to being an irresponsible, randy tramp in my husband's bed (floor, beach, divan, backseat) who can't resist a good lay.
What's Jim Bob and Sue May's excuse?
