Octomom -- I Have Dreams ...

of Getting Off Welfare

4/2/2012 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

040212_tmzlive

Octomom is firing back at critics who think she's ripping off the welfare system. Octo called in today to explain why she's using food stamps now -- and as for how/when she's getting off the dole? You gotta hear her "I have dreams" speech. Apologies to MLK.

Also, MTV says it warned Situation about his booze issues -- but now that he's in rehab ... is this whole mess headed for a lawsuit? Plus, Chevy Chase's nasty voicemail sparks a civil war on the set of "Community." We've got scoopage straight from the crew.

Not crazy out Katie but Robin (& George) is a snooze.
She should only cover sports & George should only do political news.

Katie Couric only appeals to people who don't work.

I think all the morning shows should be hosted by Charlie Sheen.

Harvey,
.
Mel Gibson was spotted in Santa Monica w/ his ADORABLE daughter Lucia on Sunday - thankfully DAILY MAIL UK managed to get pix. Why does TMZ miss Mel and Lucia but manage to get pix of Kim Kardashian (that no one wants to see - especially Kim in a Bikini - size 2 I say NOT)

I can't stand Katie Couric but the idea of watching Couric to be followed later by Joy Behar and Barbara Walters is just too much for this poor housewife. An ABC programer once said " Women will watch waht you tell them to watch" too bad that ABC tries to cater to the lowest common denomenator when it comes to women. I happen to like intelligent programming which is why I ready to give up all ABC programs.

No questions today, last week the same poll twice in a row. This show stinks now that you marketed it and stopped answering our questions. The poll was the only good part.

You can talk to Octomom until you are blue in the face and won't get the answers you want. The reason is she doesn't understand what the problem really is. Yeah, given the situation as it is today she should go on welfare for the sake of the kids. The problem is she chose to have all those kids in the first place and doesn't seem to see that as an issue. In other words it was her choices several years ago that are the problem, not so much what is happening today.
