Octomom Obsession

I gotta admit it. I'm currently obsessed with the Octomom debacle. I do realize that she is totally last month's news, but every time I hear something or see a news flash, I'm sucked right back in and forced to judge her yet again.

Why is it that I cannot just let it go? She has 14 kids (of which 3 have developmental issues), no income and no plans to get an income. She's a loser. But then, so are a LOT of other people (I could totally list them here, but I am currently frightened that God is actively smoting me and I don't want to exacerbate the situation. We need to wait for God to calm down before I start spouting new nonsense.) However, her story is like a car wreck to me. I can't look away. And, I can't stop my being Judgey McDisapproverson.

This morning as I was getting ready for work (which, in the interest of full disclosure, my attire was a big ole mismatched, wrinkled mess! I'm sure people were giving me looks, wondering how this homeless person managed to get in the front door...) and the news was featuring an EXCLUSIVE story on Octomom bringing the first babies home. I still cannot believe that SOMEONE has not put a stop to this!!! And when I say "someone," I mean not me. I'm more of a talk about it/bitchy type person..not so much an active/do-er type of person. Therefore, I've done my part! Stop being so lazy!! We all have our roles....

Frankly, I'm not sure people SHOULD have the right to have 14 kids....especially when you cannot adequately care for those kids. However, even if she did have enough money, stability, help, etc. There is no way she can EMOTIONALLY care for those kids. For heaven's sake - day cares have a 3-to-1 ratio for a REASON. Nobody is capable of that. Someone is going to be neglected, in fact, I kinda think they are all going to end up neglected.

THERE! My civic duty is fulfilled. No wait! I would also like to dime out the Shell Station here on the corner outside my hotel. It still has creepy leprechauns out front of it. Those are just scary. Take that shit down!!!

I disapprove of the Octomom's choice to have a classroom of children as her own. Seriously, if she'd been a teacher, she wouldn't have done that crap. She is just being an attention whore.

I totally disapprove as well and think that girl has some serious emotional problems to even consider she can give them a good home... give me a break! Where is social services when you need them?

Darn tootin'. I'm right with you on this one, babycakes.

I wrote a post about her earlier this month. Great minds...
