Every month, the state of Tennessee pays $7,000 to support twenty-two children, all of them fathered by a single man: Orlando Shaw, a 33-year-old lothario who can’t keep his pants zipped up. Orlando is now at the center of a child support case in Nashville, as some of the fourteen mothers of his children try to get him to cough up at least some money to support his brood. Orlando gave a revealing interview to a reporter for NewsChannel 5, a Nashville television station, one that showed that he had no compunction about getting women pregnant. He cheerfully explained that “I was young and ambitious and I love women. You can’t knock no man for loving women.” No, you can’t, but you can knock a man for knocking up women.
Orlando doesn’t just love women. He also loves crime. According to him, his criminal record prevents him from getting employment. And with 22 children (or, as Orlando, says “roughly eighteen”), with “seventeen” women, he needs a lot of employment. Magistrate Scott Rosenberg estimated that Orlando would need to hold three or four full-time jobs to meet the child support payments he owes.
WHAT! WHAT! ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! This guy is getting $7000 a month in welfare for the 22 children that he fathered! This guy is the ultimate sponge. He has latched onto the teat of the system and will remain there suckling the taxpayers dry. How on earth can one man have 22 children and still be sane? I'll tell you, $7000.00 worth of sanity per month, that's how.
