Nadya Suleman; a case study in what's wrong in America. Wow, that's a bit harsh...right? Nope--not at all, see from what I've witnessed Nadya Suleman represents what's wrong with our society.
Not that our society is near collapse or that we're so maladjusted that we can never course correct, no, in fact, I'm certain that we can--this is all about attitudes.
The attitude that allows some of us to think that it's okay to take taxpayer money and give out bonuses to the top performers, even though our company is about to shut down.
The type of attitude that allows some people to think it's okay to fly on a personal jet to Washington DC to beg for money to save their corporations from financial collapse.
The type of attitude that allows some people to dream... if I have them they will come; the home builders, the diaper companies, the formula manufacturers, the clothing suppliers, the local stores who want a feel good story about helping a mom in need...
The type of attitude that allows some of us to believe that "we are entitled" to do what ever the hell we want damned the consequences to anyone else--and in this case it's the kids that will bear those consequences so that little miss collegen lips and nose job... (no... I didn't have anything done to my lips... no I'm not trying to look like Angelina Jolie... I'm paraphrasing from an interview with NBC's Anne Curry)... can live the twisted dream that she's "always had."
How's she going to provide for FOURTEEN children? She has a plan... a bailout of sorts... oh, and she has a website asking for your money or comments... I personally left her the latter--she'll get nary a dime from me directly.
Nadya is currently accepting Food Stamps, now there's nothing wrong with that on the surface -- the program is there for those in need.... that's where the problem starts... in need, not in desire, not in "it's a lifelong dream come true," not as in It's what my selfish self-centered self wanted... no In NEED. Subtle difference I know but one that she needs to understand.
And for God's sake Nadya, when you're doing an interview be honest. Don't tell us that you are not receiving any welfare and then go on and state that your receiving food stamps temporarily (whatever) and three of your current six children are receiving governmental disability checks, to which she added "temporarily". Excuse me for just a moment while I throw the penalty flag for excessive bullshit. Honey, that's called welfare.
What's wrong with America? We live in a swamp of delusional people that believe they are entitled to do what ever they want when ever they want it damned the consequences and when the proverbial shit hits the fan each and every one of them cry for a bailout in their own twisted way. They arrive in their private jets, limos, and via the airways on the Today Show. Each with their hand out hoping that we believe them just enough this one last time.
And if that fails? You can always pack up the fourteen kids and move in with Mom.
You have been given a voice, use it. Go out and SCREAM! about something you care about.
