Have you guys seen Les Twins? They have twenty kids in their family too. Madness. Check out dis $#!7:


And then have a look at their Wikipedia page.

I'm thinking you can come out just fine in a big family. Love can move mountains!

Impressive but not unusual...certainly not in rural, agrarian societies.

Up on the Blue Ridge Parkway stands a small cabin in which a woman gave birth to 21 children...my grandmother gave birth to 16 children...of which there were 4 sets of twins.

In farming communities, these sort of large families were a blessing... it meant that despite the loss of a few children through sickness, disease, and disaster...the family would continue. Further, the abundance of helping hands after a few years meant free farm labor...with the inherrent room and board included.

Not quite so common today in modern society, but I bet there is a wonderful time to be had at traditional family gatherings. I remember at Christmas, the floor being fully knee deep with wrapping paper, and tables full of pies and cakes from all of my aunts and uncles homes.

Yup...a blessed woman she is.

Hmmm, Bless her Heart eh?? I'm not sure if you condone this or not.

Me personally, my first reaction is "Lady I hope you have some monetary plan in place and resources in place to feed and clothe and educate all those children otherwise you're selfish and irresponsible, as is the father(s) of them".

But that's just me.

This is not a story of some woman on welfare pumping out kids fathered by any old Joe that comes by just to stay on the dole. It is a farm family with one husband and one wife. They don't need a welfare cheque or a Walmart to get their goods. They are most likely self sufficient.

I personally think there are too many people on this earth already, but I guess some places, not yet.

Granted.

I still don't think this detracts from my point. Having a farm and being self-sufficient NOW, intimates nothing of the future for those children. How about when they grow up? Will they still be "working that farm"? Will it be enough to sustain all of them at the time?

It's easy to feed a little human being when all they consume are liquid products and mothers milk, not so much later on.

I also agree with you, my belief is that there are already far too many people.

You guys all know that there are different lifestyles all over the planet, right? You know that money isn't everything, right? These people aren't starving or they couldn't make all those kids. They wouldn't survive. And my example up there... they live in Paris. Come on. There are no limitations on what life can bring you. Don't judge people so harshly.

Of course money isn't everything. No one is suggesting it is.

BUT being responsible IS everything, and having the right resources available (whether it be money, food, shelter, or the ABILITY to have those things available) is everything.

The world is RIFE with irresponsible people, and my point was, if this is another case of it, then "Bless her Heart" simply did not apply, in my eyes.

Madness. Yet another occasion where I desperately would like to know how the involved people actually are reasoning. Or maybe that is the thing; They don't. Not at all.


Having twenty kids popping out one after the other when the resources of thispoor Planet is sucked dry like God knows what, is as irresponsible as can be.
