Remember the Floridian, Angel Yulee Adams? The woman who became infamous after appearing on the news claiming that “Somebody,” needs to take responsibility for all of her 15 children, and all of her suffering. Somebody needs to pay!
Adams believes that her “suffering” began when one of the three fathers of her children was sent to prison on cocaine charges. She was then facing the prospect of eviction for not paying rent.
Well somebody did in fact pay, and it turned out to be the American taxpayer. State services stepped in to give Adams a rent free home, furniture, clothing, and food for herself, and her 15 kids. Correction: since the controversy began, Adams has had an additional child, so her tally is now at 16 children. Sheehan has cost local agencies and taxpayers thousands upon thousands of dollars, and she seems completely oblivious to the notion of personal responsibility.
Appearing at a courtroom filled with people who had tried to help and provide aid to the family that doesn’t seem to stop growing, Adams was scolded by Hillsborough Circuit Judge Tracy Sheehan.
Sheehan criticized Adams as being ungrateful for all that the State has done for her, and explained that nobody wants to be in her life, and that the judge would not be the only one to be happy to see the close of the case.
“A lot of people have gone way extra miles for you,” Sheehan said. “Do you understand that?”
Angel Adams only responded with a, “No comment, Your Honor,” while looking away from the judge. Sheehan then said,
“Reach out your hand to these people instead of looking a gift horse in the mouth and asking for more, more, more.”
Adams has received national attention and has become somewhat of a poster child for why the Welfare State cannot help anyone out of poverty when the beliefs among some of those who receive tax-payer funded benefits have it in their head that they are entitled to more and more just because they are able to procreate.
