HOLY CRAP! 18 kids?

...and the lifetime Walton's acheivement award goes to Michelle Duggar (she's only 41) of Arkansas for birthing her 18th child. From the AP:

It's a happy Mother's Day for an Arkansas woman - she's pregnant with her 18th child...Michelle Duggar, 41, is due on New Year's Day, and the latest addition will join seven sisters and 10 brothers. There are two sets of twins...."We've had three in January, three in December. Those two months are a busy time for us," she said, laughing....The Duggars' oldest child, Josh, is 20, and the youngest, Jennifer, is nine months old....The fast-growing family lives in Tontitown in northwest Arkansas in a 7,000-square-foot home. All the children - whose names start with the letter J - are home-schooled....Duggar has been been pregnant for more than 11 years of her life, and the family is in the process of filming another series for Discovery Health....The new show looks at life inside the Duggar home, where chores - or "jurisdictions" - are assigned to each child. One episode of the new show involves a "jurisdiction swap," where the boys do chores traditionally assigned to the girls, and vice versa, Duggar said.

Who care's? Honestly, hasn't this band-wagon gone on long enough already? I find it pretty selfish for them to continue doing this. I have two children whom I spend all my spare time with and it still seems like I am not giving them enough personal time between us, imagine that amplified by 18. Those children no doubt suffer from an emotional disconnect from their parents. But they'll keep on going, and liberals like you will keep on encouraging them.

Liberals have done nothing to encourage this kind of behavior. Who has fought for women's right to use birth control? Who has called for an end to the gender rolls of man as breadwinner and woman as baby maker?

And it is the liberal environmentalists who know that Americans will be forced to use less resources in the future, that these children will be competing for jobs with other children from India, China, and the rest of the world.

And home schooling? It has been liberals who have always been fighing to strengthen public education for all Americans.

This is just like in Kosovo. There are 10000+ women with same 18+ kids in family. No wonder they populated like rabbits over last 25 years.
Former Yugoslavia was supporting families with multiple kids and due to Communism other people worked for them like some of us from Croatia. That is why we split off. Now UN and USA can support them.
