Have you heard the story of Desmond Hatchett? Desmond is a 33 year old man from Knoxville, Tennessee. His claim to fame? He has 30 children by 11 different women, none of whom is his wife. He has petitioned the state of Tennessee to help him pay child support because he only has a minimum wage job and the state already takes half of his paycheck. I am not making this up. I don’t do fiction.
have purposely stayed away from columns about the plight of minorities
but sometimes I just can’t help myself. There are some issues that need
discussion and examination. Here’s my first question. What in the world
were these women thinking? Is it possible that in their community these
women didn’t know about the other “baby mamas?” Is it possible that
Desmond was just so irresistible that they just had to jump into the
sack with him? Aside from a roll in the hay, what did Desmond bring to
the lives of these women?
us look at some of the possibilities. Some will say that the women were
just looking for a paycheck from the welfare department. We have all
heard about people gaming the system by producing children strictly for
the money. Or, maybe they were in love with Desmond. Naw, I doubt it.
More likely these women, along with Hatchett, are just irresponsible
dregs of society. Maybe they don’t have any concern for themselves or
for the children they are inflicting on the community.
when you consider the children, what chance do they have for a
reasonable life? Who will be their father figure? Will they, if they
survive to adulthood, become the same societal dregs that their mother
and father are? Any study of economics already shows us that the surest
way to live a life of poverty is to be born out of wedlock, in a
minority community and with no father figure at home. Desmond and his
co-respondents have given us 30 such children. The odds of these
offspring continuing this dependent life on welfare and becoming the
next criminal element as they grow up are staggeringly high.
what is society to do? Are we just to pay up? Are we just to arrest
them when they eventually become the next criminals? Do we continue to
send the welfare checks with no restriction? When will we have had
would seem that the Hatchetts of this world have reverted to a feral
animal lifestyle. They have become opportunity breeders. Like other male
animals they wander through the herd of females and breed anyone who
stops long enough. There is a large segment of our populace who believe
we should castrate Desmond and his ilk. They also believe we should take
the children away from these irresponsible women and put them in real
homes where they might have a chance at a real life. These are indeed
will say we need to educate these people. They need to understand that
their actions have consequences. Unfortunately there are none so stupid
as those who refuse to learn. Sadly this appears to be the case of
Desmond and his “baby mamas.”
you will be true to yourself and examine this situation without
prejudice, you have to conclude that this situation, and others like it,
are caused and exacerbated by such liberal fixes as “The Great
Society.” The liberals have spent billions of taxpayer dollars trying
to assuage their own guilt under the guise that they are helping the
minority community. Some seem to have the belief that if we just keep
these people down on the plantation and send along a little money, they
will not be a bother to us. The result is that we have created a
dependent society who will never grow out of it. We have generations of
dependents producing more dependent generations.
excusing these actions without calling the guilty to account is a crime
in and of itself. We are doing this minority community no favor by
looking the other way. I know I have some readers from minority groups. I
hope you will offer your thoughts. I and many of my fellow taxpayers
are fed up.
