The story of Nadya Suleman is contrived and calculated. My theory in all of this is that Ms. Suleman has been watching The Learning Channel and was seeing dollar signs when she was implanted with eight embryos and took fertility drugs to make sure that all the embryos took. I am sure it will be learned over the next few weeks that she has shopped her show around Hollywood looking to hit the lottery of life by getting her own show.
For reasons unknown to me, people seem to like to watch “Jon and Kate Plus 8” to see just how miserable these two idiots are with their eight children. Jon and Kate Gosselin thought it would be a good idea after already having twins through artificial insemination and fertility drugs to shoot for two more. Much to their surprise they had 6 embryos take and the rest is history.
Enter The Discovery Channel. A once great educational channel that has been turned into reality TV central. They own The Learning Channel that was once another great educational channel that has been morphed into a reality/fashion channel. I guess the powers that be at Discovery Channel think that the almighty dollar is far more important than education. Rather than teaching us about the world and the wonderful creatures contained therein, Discovery has decided that mindless behavior is far more entertaining and profitable.
So they put Jon and Kate Gosselin on The Learning Channel and like sheep being led to slaughter, the people line up to watch as these two idiots try to raise eight kids. Back to my theory. Ms. Suleman sees all this transpire and calls Discovery to tell them she has six kids and she is a single mom. Discovery Channel doesn’t bite. So Ms. Suleman and her dopey parents decide to take it to the next level. “Lets give birth to a baseball team.”
Enter the media. The Los Angeles Times as well as local talk show hosts John and Ken begin to scrutinize Ms. Suleman and her family. They start to question the family about how they intend to pay for these eight new arrivals. The media then learns that Ms. Suleman has six other children for a total of 14. She literally hit it right out of the park with the eight new babies. Surely the Discovery Channel would give her a show now. But the media attacks become relentless. They begin to ask the age old question . . . Why? Why would a woman that already has six children that she cannot afford have eight more?
Enter the taxpayer. Me and the rest of the poor schnooks here in California that are going to be financially burdened with having to take care of an entire platoon of children. The Taxpayers here in California are livid about this and now we are asking why Ms. Suleman would do such a thing. Is she trying to make her own army? Is Ms. Suleman trying to get an expansion team from the NFL for Los Angeles? Is she looking to start her own construction company and hire nothing but family to avoid payroll tax? Is Ms. Suleman out of her mind? How can someone that cannot afford the children she already has be allowed to have eight more children?
Again back to my theory. The Discovery Channel. There is probably already a show in pre-production. I would bet money on it. I would bet that it was The Discovery Channel that leaked the story to the press in the first place. I would also bet that they didn’t do any background research on Ms. Suleman and realize that it was going to get so much negative publicity. But who cares? A & E brought “Dog the Bounty Hunter” back from the dead after his racially insensitive remarks about black people. In fact old Dog has turned speaking at churches and schools into a whole cottage industry and making a fortune off of it.
So here is how this will play out. The Discovery Channel will lay low for six months or so, all the while shooting footage for their new show “Nadya plus 14″ which will show America the struggles and foibles of raising fourteen children. America being the nation of blithering idiots that we are will line up like sheep being led off to slaughter and watch every week being careful not to miss an episode. Unfortunately, we will never know how hard the taxpayer will take it in the seat because of confidentiality laws here in The People’s Republic of California. But I know one thing. The Discovery Channel will make millions. JD
