★ The Joys of the Welfare State

Most of you have probably heard the story of Nadya Suleman by now. Last month, she gave birth to octuplets, raising her total number of children to fourteen. She is single, unemployed, and living entirely on taxpayer money. The state of California has been financing this woman's livelihood, and now she wants, nay, needs more. Suleman is a textbook example of what liberals call myth: the welfare queen. Unwilling to work, she is taking advantage of loopholes in the American welfare system, having more children and then demanding that the government take care of them. It's a tragic story, especially for the children who are being weaned onto Big Government's teet as soon as their off their mother's.
