The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

***The good? Well, there's some good stuff in the news this morning. First, the House passed Paul Ryan's budget resolution without a single Democrat vote. Guess we know which side is really serious about reducing the size of government. Not that we didn't already. Second, Prosser has won the Wisconsin Supreme Court race. They won't make it official until Kloppenburg decides whether or not to ask for a recount. Or, whether she thinks they Democrats can steal it for her. A 7000+ deficit is gonna be hard to make up, though, even for the Democrats. The bad? Today is my aunt's funeral. Never a pleasant thing, obviously. The ugly? Well...


***Moving along...Marco Rubio at Tampa Tea Party. This guy would make a great Republican presidential candidate.

***Way to keep it classy, Loretta Sanchez.

***America, the Dependent. This just has to stop.

Politicians originally sold AmeriCorps as an alternative to big government — a program to “renew the ethic of civic responsibility and the spirit of community throughout the United States.” With bipartisan support, the program has morphed into an all-purpose progressive slush fund. Instead of reining in the national service boondoggle, Washington has turned taxpayer-subsidized helping hands into a legion of Nanny State handout helpers. Goodbye, AmeriCorps. Hello, FoodStampCorps.

Yes, across the Internet, the feds are recruiting AmeriCorps VISTA (“Volunteers in Service to America”) workers to apply for jobs as publicists for the welfare state. Their mission: to sign up as many people to federal food stamp rolls as possible. Because, you know, the record-breaking 12 million that have been added since Obama took office is apparently not good enough.

Check out the rise in Food Stamp recipients:


THIS is what the Democrats call compassion. Getting as many people as dependent on the government as possible.

***Obama vows to keep his czars, even though the new budget he is going to sign requires that he relinquish them. He really is amazing...I think Rush is right. He DOES think he's the Messiah! The law? Pfuh! It doesn't apply to him! Oh, imagine the howling from the press if he were a Republican pulling this crap.

***Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, would be so happy today...

“[W]e could well take example from Russia,” advised Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, “where birth control instruction is part of the regular welfare service of the government.”
Sanger, racial-eugenicist who spoke to a 1926 KKK rally, whose work included a “Negro Project,” who wished to rid America of “human weeds” and “morons” and “imbeciles,” and who wanted birth control for “race improvement,” had just returned from a pilgrimage to Stalin’s Russia. Like many progressives (click here for John Dewey’s experiences), she went there to soak in the alleged triumphs of the communist motherland, marveling at Lenin’s and Stalin’s advancements for women.
And so, in the June 1935 edition of her publication, Birth Control Review, in an article titled, “Birth Control in Russia,” Sanger concluded:
Theoretically, there are no obstacles to birth control in Russia. It is accepted … on the grounds of health and human right…. [W]e could well take example from Russia, where there are no legal restrictions, no religious condemnation, and where birth control instruction is part of the regular welfare service of the government.

What a sweetheart, huh? Here's the kicker:

I could quote more, including this jaw-dropping prediction: “All the officials with whom I discussed the matter stated that as soon as the economic and social plans of Soviet Russia are realized, neither abortions nor contraception will be necessary or desired. A functioning Communistic society will assure the happiness of every child, and will assume the full responsibility for its welfare and education.”
Now there, ladies and gentleman, is progressive utopianism, an absolute faith in central planners. Contrary to the Planned Parenthood matron’s optimism, abortions skyrocketed to seven million annually in the USSR.

Her wish, however, has come true. The Democrats now fight to their last breath against touching abortion "rights," it is their sacred idol. Just listen to them whine and moan about protecting a woman's right to kill her unborn child. They get positively incensed. Abortion is the Democrat Holy Grail, and they won't give it up.
