Default Man who fathered 30 kids with 11 different women says he needs a break

on child support.

Goodness, how could that guy and those 11 different women be that dumb?

Since this guy is making minimum wage, guess who is paying his 30 kids expenses? The taxpayers. And guess what, he COULD MAKE MORE BABIES later.

And you thought Octomom had her hands full—a Tennessee man who has fathered 30 children is asking the courts for a break on child support.
Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville has children with 11 different women, reports WREG-TV.

The state already takes half his paycheck and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much when Hatchett is making only minimum wage. Some of the moms receive as little as $1.49 a month. The oldest child is 14 years old.

Hatchett explains how he reached such a critical mass: He had four kids in the same year. Twice.
Back in 2009 when Hatchett was in court to answer charges that many of the mothers were not receiving child support, he had 21 children. At the time, he said he was not going to father any more kids, but he ended up having nine more in the past three years.

The state cannot order Hatchett to stop making babies. He hasn't broken any laws, according to the report.

I've often said that custodial parents need to be drug and alcohol tested. It appears that all of these people need to be in this case...lol

Humanity has to get real about reproduction. The ancient attitude of reproducing ad infinitum is not sustainable and definitely not desireable. People should began receiving penalties for reproducing above a certain level, and possibly even jailed if they that doesn't stop them.

Seriously though, what does this have to do with anything?

To the OP, its time to sterilize those on the government dole.

Honestly, would it kill these guys to pull out? For better or worse I have slept with scores of women, but I don't have any unwanted kids . . .

This article is full of liberal tolerance. The left has absolutely no problem with a man fathering 30 children he cannot support... no not wanting to redefine marriage THAT is where they draw the line

If you're not bringing anything useful just don't bring anything at all to the topic.

It's absurd to say that "the left" has no problem with this behavior. I think it's disgusting, and this guy is a complete drain on society. That being said, the left is absolutely in the right on gay marriage IMO.

I think this guy's behavior is terrible. Does the right want 'big government' to make a law against it? No, they'd rather the children pay, for their ideology about 'incentives'.

"Freedom" has a price. For the guy it's facing a lot of child support that should be owed, perhaps a lot more than is now. For society, it's not leaving the kids without needs.

Regardless of the spirit in which this post was intended (which is unknown to me), I will take it as a compliment . . .

So you're telling me with your post that you think this post I responded to is not stupid, that in fact you not only support it but you also believe this crap?:

The mental picture of a woman looking mournfully at a cheque for $1.49 in child support is actually rather funny.
