There is a marked difference

There is a marked difference between being stupid, that is having less than normal intelligence, and being shiftless, lazy, sorry, "playing the system", and criminal. Christine Long is stupid. Welfare Queens, breeders, broodmares, "deadbeat baby daddy" are shiftless, sorry, lazy, "playing the system" and criminal. HERE'S YOUR SIGN!!!!

Not a very good news article.

Not a very good news article. Was she physically abused or just having babies one after the other. If physically she should have left years ago. If she calls having babies abuse, well that takes the two of them. If she didn't want them she should have left. I understood that her and these kids were left alone all the time just about, why didn't she go get help from someone---like the police. I can't understand this until I hear the whole story. Maybe I'm stupid but I can not see a woman staying in a place like this, when she was free to walk. SusieQ

There are reports of drug use

There are reports of drug use and domestic abuse at the home. 55 f-100 you say there is a diffrence btw lazy and stupid. But even though her and her husband were both unemployed with 11 kids. She is stupid and not lazy. I don't get it. Two ppl with 11 kids shouldn't have jobs. You want them to stay unemployed.
