    Sorry in advance for the for the wall of text. I was reading up some more on the Duggars and came across this post. A long read, but I thought it was interesting.



    Jim Phillips 3 hours ago
    The Duggar original house for 14+ was provided by the church next door for free. The church used it (for families in need) from their congregation. They let the Duggars live there FREE as a family in need.
    Their vehicles were all donated to them through local area churches. All the Duggar clothing and a lot of their food were from assistance programs for the poor in the area; so the Duggars were POOR.
    Don't buy into their TV lies. The Duggars and TLC produced a reality TV show of what people wanted to see that made things look different from what their lives were really all about. It is NOT even related to the realities of the Duggar family. TLC bought into the lie willingly. They knew it was bullshit, but it made for good TV.
    Their big house was originally only a concrete slab, a badly constructed roof, and had badly-installed heating which made it necessary for it to be torn out and redone by TLC. There were no indoor walls, no electrical, no plumbing, no HVAC, no studs, no flooring, no stairs, no insulation, no fireproofing, no windows, no doors, no framing, no ceilings, etc. None of that was done by Jim Bob; TLC did it all. TLC wrote a check to Jim Bob for 200k for the house. TLC also ensured that the standard and legal building codes were up-to-date (through the use of licensed contractors) that Jim Bob neglected to ensure in his building practices.
    Don't believe what Jim Bob says! He's a lying liar who lies. Now, Jim Bob would like to say, from his narcissistic perspective, that TLC demanded they build a bigger house for production. Not true. The family desperately needed a home and it was impossible for Jim Bob to finish it, or even get to the point of having walls and ceilings. He was in arrears (owing back money on a debt) to the people who poured the concrete (look up the public records of lawsuits and/or property liens against James Robert Duggar.) He didn't have the skills to do the project, nor the money to pay someone. TLC built the Duggar home, full stop; that house wouldn't have been livable for many years at the rate he was going. He owed money to everyone who helped him work on the house. He was sued for payment by the concrete company who poured his slab - that is DEBT. Advertisers were then contracted to provide all the appliances and furniture.
    The fact that the Duggars lived on large amounts of charity, Pre-TLC, became known very early. They hinted at donations of furniture and clothing early on in their specials (which were televised before their reality TV show), but that was only a tiny portion of the truth. Church members have ratted out the Duggars all over different internet forums. You can check their city and/or county tax filings to see if they ever paid property taxes on a home. In later TV specials, Jim Bob had to admit the original broke-down family bus was donated to them. Rumor has it that the church wanted the Duggars OUT of the charity house. The property was broken-down and condemnable. The city was leaning on the church to make renovations on the house or to tear it down. After the Duggars left, the church tore it down for a parking lot.
    Every time you would see a product placement on 19+, that was a freebie for the Duggars. Every time Michelle and Jim Bob mentioned a certain brand name of a product on their show, it resulted in more freebies for the Duggars. That's how reality TV works. So those sub-zero freezers? Freebies. Stoves? Free. Washers and Dryers? Free. Cleaning products in the pantry? Free.
    Oh, let's not forget about the constant trips, weddings, funerals for fetuses, parties, and shopping trips were all paid for by TLC as part of production. TLC is not alone in this. It happens on all reality TV. Need a nice restaurant to meet friends? Need dinner paid for? Call TLC and put it on the show!
    That's the world those kids grew up in. Praise Jesus, smile sweet for the cameras, hide your impure thoughts and resentments, and all your needs will be met by God!
    Josie's medical bills would have been in excess of a million dollars. With what are probably the same practices as the hospital in which I work, Josie's hospital itself probably automatically applied for Medicaid for her, as could TLC have done if they were providing insurance for the Duggar tribe. Medicaid was involved. No hospital or insurance company wants to shoulder that financial burden alone. Jim Bob is anti-insurance, as stated early on in a TV special.
    It doesn't take very much research to see all the cracks in the Duggars' story. Believing all the lies they spew on TV is simply dumb! Go take a crack at finding out for yourself what this family has been up to for 15 years.
    The Duggar parents started twisting reality from their very first show. Did you not wonder how a family of 14 could live on Jim Bob's cheap real estate deals? Did it not seem ridiculous that Michelle could teach her children, all of them at once, anything at all? Didn't that church charity home of 3 bedrooms + 2 baths seem a little squalid, with no room to study, play, or eat in one whole setting? How much time was spent attending to the individual needs of all those kids? The older Duggar kids (and in the future, the M grandkids) will always suffer in "school" and on "educational" field trips because the lessons are skewing downward so the youngest students will understand. When the show started, those kids had big dreams; they wanted to be doctors, lawyers, vets, firemen, interior decorators, and such. Why did all of those dreams get smashed and now none of them are working at all? What ground those aspirations into dust?
    Only three adult children have a GED, which the Duggars claim is graduating from high school (see the blurring of the truth there?) Why don't any of their other kids have training or enough schooling for a GED diploma? This last April, a post on the Duggars' Tumbler stated that Jackson started 4th grade in April and he turns 11 in May. One of the older girls cannot do fractions, and 14-year-old James Duggar is only now learning his multiplication tables. The Duggar children are displaying the results of Michelle not properly taking on the necessary teaching and nurturing roles within her homeschooling. Michelle is staying true to form; she made it quite public by saying (on their show) that the kids do all of the homeschooling themselves (she stated that Jessa was the organizer and the teacher, and whoever takes her place has some mighty big shoes to fill AND I DON'T KNOW WHO WILL STEP IN). Seriously? It's not as if she didn't see this coming, and maybe it's a sign that she should be taking back this responsibility; but we all know that won't be happening. Homeschooling has afforded Michelle the least amount of involvement and responsibility. In a regular school, she'd have to ensure that the kids got to school on time (not gonna happen on Duggar time), she'd have to ensure their homework was done, she'd have to go to parent-teacher meetings (no one is gonna tell her about her kids... or anything), she'd have to volunteer in classrooms, she'd have to drive the kids to their school activities, etc. There would be actual responsibilities, and she wouldn't be calling the shots (such as teaching values and "facts" based on a biblical separatist mindset fueled by Gothard, Phillips, and the rest of the Duggar fundamentalist circles - like the country's entire population will fit in Jacksonville, FL).
    All the more appalling is that neither Jim Bob nor Michelle work traditional jobs; they, AS PARENTS, could devote a lot of time and energy to educating their kids.
    I actually believe the older kids may have had a better education, just because 1) there were less kids to manage and 2) Michelle was more on her mom game. However, the younger kids have been a part of tours, shows, specials, and the general public spectacle for all of their lives; all of that puts a serious wrench in the "plan." Michelle can delegate all she wants to the older girls, but there is a reason successful teachers need to be adults with proper training. Without consistent education and reinforcement, we see a seemingly with-it 13/14 year old learning times tables.
    Now, can one NOT believe that the Duggar children (uneducated and unskilled) believe that the world owes them the good life? Instead of being taught the value of an education and the rewards of having a strong work ethic, this is how they were raised! Praise Jesus and the fans send gifts to your wedding registry! Exalt in God, forget the molestation (it's "no biggie" after all, according to Jill and Jessa), and all those bills will magically be paid!
    Jill observed a few births under the wing of a woman who lost her license to practice midwifery due to her insufficient education and safety practices. Jill and Jana were NEVER midwives in-training, not even doulas in-training. Their rush to assist at live births was only for their TV show. It was a lie to imply that Jill or Jana were fully trained or qualified for the full responsibility of participating in live births on a full-time basis.
    That is the Duggar template; don't learn anything on your own that is not pre-approved by Daddy Dearest Duggar, don't leave the Duggar household until you're married, and don't experiment with new ideas nor learn new skills that would require an education or further training outside of the Duggar bubble. Just stay under the Duggar umbrella and God will provide; females, stay under your male headship and obey his every word.
    None of the adult kids has a job; thirteen adults are not working (at all), and are not producing any income nor gaining any skills that will help support the family. John David isn't even a licensed commercial pilot yet and won't be for years. Josh is currently unemployed; in his pre-DC working past, he spent most his time at the used car lot playing video games. He couldn't even manage the financial books for that place.

    This is so sad, imo.

    Doesn't homeschooling then require frequent outside testing? I could say I homeschool my kids when I am actually not. How is this checked and how do they know the curriculum to be taught?

    I very much doubt the Kardashian/Jenner morons have ever taken/passed a test. I'm sure their instagrammed diplomas are from Kinkos.

    The rules for homeschooling in Denmark are surprisingly lax. The municipality may hold tests for homeschooled kids, but it's really all about schmoozing up to the inspector. That being said homeschooling is very rare in Denmark.

    That depends on what jurisdiction you're in. Some are highly regulated, others basically have nothing.

    I'm fascinated by religious hypocrites. They decide to give their lives to (fill in the blank) and all their nasty behavior is expunged. What gets my goat on a personal level is that their cults are tax exempt. I've broken my back to pay taxes and never counted on a cult to support me (cough-tax free-cough) but these con artists get on my last nerve.

    The long post about the Duggar scam above is spot on.

    Article that I saw last week below supports what Greysfang says, and it's probably worse. Apparently, they have a very strong lobbying arm:

    Well, if you asked the Duggars they'd say not your God.

    How many do they think there are? Personally, my vote is zero, but what say the Duggars?

    Is Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard’s ‘missionary work’ just a huge scam?

    We haven’t discussed Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard in a while. That’s because shortly after they welcomed baby Israel, they got the hell out of Dodge. In the wake of Josh Duggar’s original scandal, the molestation scandal, the Dillards left for El Salvador to do “missionary work.” For what it’s worth, both Derick and Jill did have real jobs before this trip – she was a midwife (or training to be a midwife) and he was some kind of manager with Walmart. They quit their jobs to go gallivanting in El Salvador, never to be heard from again. Except they have flown back to Arkansas at least three times this summer. Which begs the question: are they really doing “missionary work” or are they just talking a long vacation and flying back home whenever they feel like it?

    Fans are beginning to question whether Jill Duggar and her husband are spending donated money on mission work or for personal expenses. The 24-year-old former reality TV star and her husband, Derick Dillard, left with their infant son in late June — just weeks after she admitted that eldest brother Josh Duggar had molested her and three other sisters — for a lengthy mission trip to El Salvador.

    The couple solicits donations through their Dillard Family Ministries, which an IRS representative confirmed was listed as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

    But fans have questioned the couple’s travel after Derick and Jill Dillard have apparently flown back to the U.S. at least three times — including this weekend, when they attended cousin Amy Duggar’s wedding in Bentonville, Arkansas — since leaving about two months ago.

    “Jill and Derick are back in the states AGAIN !!!!!!!” complained fan Daisy Shay on the couple’s Facebook page. “THEY TRAVEL BACK AND FORTH BUT WANT US TO DONATE AND GIVE THEM MONEY…they entire Duggar cult lives and breathes for media attention now that the gravy train ran dry Jessa jumps in front of every camera in desperation. Narcissist behavior.”

    Another fan cautioned Rolfe not to expect an explanation from the Duggar family about the couple’s spending: “You will never get a straight answer, you are just financing their extended vacation,” said Claudia Brown.

    Jill Dillard flew to New York City last month to participate in a TLC program on sex abuse, and some fans have questioned whether the couple even went to El Salvador — where they claim to be ministering to gang members.

    “People wise up,” warned fan Nikita Jones. “Can’t you tell when you’re being scammed? They’re taking trips to places that YOU can’t afford and they’re doing it with YOUR money. They have no credibility, they are NOT transparent with what they’re doing with your donations and they could care less about you. If you want to donate to charities, start locally. I’m sure there are people in YOUR community that are more deserving than these scammers.”

    [From Raw Story]

    Oh ho ho. When the Duggar-loving wingnuts turn on Jill Duggar, it might be time to pack it up and go home. Jill is like the most sympathetic of all the Duggar kids and I actually think her marriage to Derick seems pretty strong. But yes, they totally quit their jobs to “minister to gang members,” which is Duggar-code for “drinking mojitos on the beach.” There’s nothing wrong with drinking mojitos on the beach, but you can’t take people’s money in the name of charity to do that.

    Haha. My fundie parent's church was supporting a missionary couple who lived on a boat in the Florida Keys. I guess them folks down there really needed saving! I was a teenager when I scratched my head and asked about that one.... the followers of that church were so brainwashed logic hurt their feelings.

    I'm pretty sure gang members in El Salvador don't give a shit what these two think. They need to come up with a more believable story.
