I love The Common Room blog, but I always come away steaming mad. Being informed on political matters often has that effect, it seems.
- “We are God’s partners in matters of life and death,” Obama said… Yes, I’m sure there was a greater context to this statement, but do we really need or want to know?
- White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki seems to assert that unintended consequences don’t exist. Yet another downside to the Cash For Clunkers fiasco, or C4C as I prefer to call it.
- CPSIA will affect not only Craigslist and thrift stores – their current focus - but even yard sales. When toys are outlawed, only criminals will have toys.
- Despite what Obama said, the House bill would allow abortions to be covered by a federal plan and by federally subsidized private plans. Did you ever doubt it, from the single most rabid opponent of the Born Alive Act?
I don’t tend to keep up with politics unless an issue hits me in the head or the gut. There are certain advantages to keeping one’s head in the sand.
