    He does it so we'll focus on him and his stupid comments and not the OP.

    Better yet, do yourself a favor and just don't post if all you're going to do is make a stupid comment that has nothing to do with the OP. That way you won't come off looking more the fool you really are.

    You miss the point of th OP. If this were a less PC coupling, the DUouches would be outraged at the volume of children being raised, the impact on the environment or the existence of Dick Cheney (anger among leftists is less about cause and effect and more about just being angry), but because the couple are poster children for Progressive family policy, they are lauded.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    I adopted who I loved and wanted to adopt and who I could afford to adopt as well, I raise her will good morals and values. Its not my job to save the world or warp minds like these two queers are doing. Sorry they might have a better "financial" life but they are exposed to a bad value/moral example.

    My thoughts exactly, if this had been a man and a woman you'd at best hear nothing at worst you'd hear what ody said.

    Yes, some adopted kids come with benefits to make them more adoptable, and foster kids come with a monthly payment of some sort. If all of these kids were fosters, then I think these guys would get a whopping $5000 a month for the maintenance of ten kids. But these aren't foster kids, they are adopted, according to the article.

    But just for fun, let's say that they are getting some money or benefits for the kids. How much is too much? How much would it cost to keep these kids in foster care and case management not to mention the possibility of juvenile detention or prison?

    Although this family lives in a different county than the one I work in, my guess is that the couple is getting adoption subsidy funds for any kid who was over 3 at the time of adoption (we only pay subisdy for babies/toddlers if they have special needs).

    We don't allow adoptions in which subsidy is the sole support for the family, though, or where subsidy and welfare are the only money coming into the household.

    Farmington Hills is a good place to raise kids in metro Detroit. The schools are good, the yards are big, and there are lots of parks for the kids.

    You can also add Noonwitch's fact that people get state subsidies for these kids and you can add another motive to the mix.
