Here’s the deal.
Nothing for the Nauglers is screwed up, except what they have screwed up themselves.
These people have been doing something that normal people don’t do. They’ve been doing it for years and years. They have been fucking indiscriminately and making one baby after another. Get it? That’s what they’ve been doing.
And after they make these babies, they do not want to pay for them.
Joe refuses to work.
And don’t hand me that stay-at-home dad shit. I was a stay-at-home mother too, until one day it became clear that I needed to go back to work, even if it was just part-time.
I did, and for several years I homeschooled and worked full time simultaneously. [I worked nights on the weekends, twelve-hour shifts, and was home during the week. Mondays were always pretty tough because I’d been up all Sunday night.]
Nicole cannot possibly make enough money to support that family washing dog butts. Nobody could. It doesn’t matter how hard she works, or how many dogs come through those doors. The math won’t work.
Having children carries with it some requirements for responsibility after they are born. The Nauglers have almost zero awareness or acceptance of this. Just posting nice photos on Facebook of filthy dirty children usually mostly naked in the summertime isn’t parenting. And using the hashtag #unschooling isn’t education. Pictures of your pregnant belly that nobody wants to see is not prenatal care.
If you have functioning reproductive organs, having a baby is not an accomplishment of any sort. And not having functioning reproductive organs is not a failing. It’s just a fact for some folks.
What is an accomplishment is knowing how many children, if any, you can afford to raise and making sure you don’t have any more than that.
What is an accomplishment is understanding that bad shit can happen to anyone without warning, and making sure that you do your damnedest to prepare for that so you and the people who depend upon you aren’t put in jeopardy.
What is an accomplishment is making sure that the children, the ones you figured you could support adequately, are in fact adequately supported, even if that means you have to get two jobs and do without the internet and weed.
Society does not owe the Nauglers shit. We’ve already put in place a system to provide them with health care so they won’t be any more of a drain on our society, but they refuse to avail themselves of it. They chose to have all these kids. The world does not need their kids. The world does not need for those people to reproduce endlessly. Their kids are not that great. I see no signs of genius there. They are just kids.
Yes, our health care system currently needs some serious tweaking. Republicans have absolutely no idea how to do that, so I don’t think it’s going to happen any time soon, since what we need is some form of single payer health insurance.
But the Nauglers’ current situation is not because of that. Nicole boasts about how she “trusts her body” and how great she is for having home births. She would have done it that way if giving birth at a hospital was free. You know how I know? I know because she has qualified for Medicaid now for years and years and has never bothered to apply. Under Medicaid it would be free.
So, Joe, don’t try this blame game.
This clusterfuck that is your life is not the government’s fault. It’s not the trolls’ fault. It’s not the health care system’s fault. It’s not the insurance companies’ fault.
It’s your fault. It’s Nicole’s fault.
Own it. Get a fucking job, you lazy fuck.
