EIGHT IS ENOUGH IN THIS ECONOMY.

There's a story coming out of Southern California here about a woman who gave birth this week to octuplets! 8 CHILDREN AT ONE TIME! My God! As Howard Stern was saying, "She's like a dog, with a new litter of puppies." While I'm all for the miracle of life and crap, this is outrageous! One child is enough work, let alone 8! What makes this story even worse, is that this baby-making machine already has six children! IS SHE OUT OF HER MIND?! The six children she already has are all under 10 years old! And now comes the new littler of eight! With our current economy in a depression, what this woman is doing is nothing short of criminal. I mean, we already have six billion plus human beings on the planet, and adding this many more to the equation is not helping things. I mean, I too wish I had my own child/children at times, but I have to be realistic in that I am not able to afford one of those things. Children take work/patience and lots of money! This woman has 14 kids now; chances are they're not going to have very adequate lives because the family recently filed for bankruptcy. Terrible terrible. If you don't have the absolute best to offer a child, why bring them into this difficult world? Completely irresponsible.

Do you know who Johanna Sigurdardottir is? She is set to become the world's first openly gay prime minister! The lesbian leader of an entire nation! Ya see, it's not just the United States that's suffering through this economic mess, but the world entire, and Iceland has officially gone bankrupt, so under the weight of all the pressure, the conservative government that was
in place collapsed. Yeah man, who would've thought Iceland was going through all this financial ruin? I mean, it's such a tiny little island in the middle of nowhere it seems, but the dramatic effects of this worldwide depression has hit Icelanders very hard. The French took to the streets just recently to protest their government's handling of the crisis as well, and look for more of this in the coming months around the world. Ya see, it sucks to live in these first-world nations, because one has gotten accustomed to a nice standard of living, and to see it all slip under like this is gonna make a lot of people angry, riotous, and upset. Positive things are going to come out of this however. I think people have been way too comfortable for too long, and the time has come perhaps, to really let our governments know that their ridiculous overspending and mishandling of our economies cannot continue to stand. The middle class is suffering big time.

You and I are gonna have great weekends regardless. Live a little! Let yer hair down! Have some cotton candy...

Did you know the Icelandic Govt gave Bjork a very own personal island of her own...

... (for island read: craggy outcrop of volcanic rock amid the crashing freezing waters of the North Atlantic, hmmmm not quite as glamorous as it first sounds...)

Speaking of the woman who had her litter...there is some odd controversy. Apparently the Broodmother has six other spawn as well. She was already confirmed pregnant, but opted for extra fertility treatments.

This lady is disgusting because the Taxpayers will end cover the cost of most of these kids expenses. Woman should be sent to prison for Child Abuse. This is not the time to have so many children ......

I emphatically agree with you regarding the whole baby thing. I work at a school and see parents spitting out children like it's a way of life. Almost going through the motions like a fucking robot, these women allow their husbands to impregnate them as if there's some race to see who's uterus will collapse first. To add insult to injury, 90% of these families are on some sort of public assistance that my taxes are paying for.

Kids are cute and all but jeez, shouldn't planning come before sexual pleasure? Guess not.

Love you as always WAT. I'll take you up on that cotton candy bro. Sounds good.

Besos para ti.

Someday I hope to make it to Iceland and Greenland. They have always fascinated me. With their economy gone bust, perhaps now is the time to go and help with their recovery.

Hey, I think Saturday Night Live read your post and swiped some of your material for their Weekend Update. Did you see it?

They had an Angelina Jolie on there asking about that woman who had the litter of babies. "Any available?" It seems all the adoption jokes that used to go to Mia Farrow are not Jolie's.

I did have a nice weekend. Didn't eat cotton candy but got some rest and successfully avoided doing school work. Hehe.

Shouldn't there be some ethical standards to meet before you can have multiple births?? Like the ability to support them, for one!!!! I have heard that she lives with her parents, has disclosed nothing about the unmarried father, who must be shitting a brick at the possibility of child support, and her family recently declared bankruptcy and abandoned the home they owned before it foreclosed on them. Good structured environment
