Nice family values Shabanga Shaboonga. Now the children will become foster kids & then on to prison. Great. Because this Mutha wanted to go out, not the rest of us will be supporting these suckers for the rest of their lives. Thanks again Mafungo.
You were already supporting her and her kids for life. She is given everything and still can't simply cash the government check and give the rent money to the landlord. Even that's too much responsibility!
Sterilize her. Find the fathers. Make them step up and pay for their children.

Just curious--how do you know that the children have 2 different fathers? I read the article twice, and didn't see that info.
Article says the kids were placed with the paternal grandfather of the 6 year-old. Sharper minds can asertain that if they specificaly note the "paternal grandfather of the 6 year-old" then the grandfather of the 11 1/2 year-old is another man, hence, the father of the 11 1/2 year-old is a different father.
Pay attention here, will you. Don't make us explain everything, OK.(besides, it's Roosevelt... that the standard situation in Roosevelt, single mothers, multiple irresponsible fathers, taxpayer supported lives)

She won't stop at one more. As long as her va-jay-jay is damp, kids will continually fall out of it.
Those are called 'revenue enhancements', like when republicans increase taxes.

Ya know what? I asked a simple question -- no need for sarcasm. I actually thought the person read a different article than I did. I am not originally from New York, and not familiar with the practice of stereotyping people on the basis of their name and/or what town they happen to live in.
Although it may be hard to be leave after reading these posts, most of us do not stereotype people based on name and or location.

I wouldn't call it stereotyping when the people are correct 99% of the time. It's called living in reality with an IQ over 100.

Again, no need for sarcasm. How sharp is your mind when you cannot ASCERTAIN which words you SPECIFICALLY spell incorrectly? Glass houses......

1 and 1/2, not 11 and 1/2 - big difference...

Maybe things are different where you live, but here, it's Democrats who raise taxes to pay for people like this woman!

You seem to be able to type just fine as well. You just can't spell.

I hate when ppl judge a situation without all the facts. FYI she did have a job at the time this was happening.

People struggle and make wrong decisions but there's always reasons for them and there's always a way to make up for it you kick the woman down and drag her name through the dirt but there's soo many ppl who do it. Though it does not make it the best. Look at yourselves look at what you write with suicide especially how words that hurt can affect that person to ending their life from depression. And as for race I'm a African American Women and just because racist or prejudice Caucasian may say that " Another Black Mark" that's horrible because there's Caucasians that don't have much either. An to set the record straight African Americans are brown not black. You never know what someone could be going through or what they thought and if she was fighting eviction she was fighting for her daughters to stay at a home. We don't know what's going on in people's life so let's stop acting like it.
