Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
Hallelujah, change is a-coming to the Federal religious outreach program:
President Barack Obama on Thursday signed an order establishing a White House office of faith-based initiatives with a broader mission than the one overseen by his predecessor, Republican George W. Bush.
Obama said the office would reach out to organizations that provide help "no matter their religious or political beliefs."
Obama is calling his program the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
This illustrates the danger I see in every
Federal program created for the purpose of "outreach" and "assistance", even those created by Republican presidents: The next
guy in office is likely to turn the program into a pork-barrel project that serves his
The bottom line is this:—President Obama may couch
this change in terms of "community activism" and "neighborhood partnerships," but the end result is the same as it's always been for the Left:—Namely, yet another endless pile of recycled proverbs from Karl Marx, which have proven time and time again to be a failure.
Which means that my
message is the same, whether our figurehead is George W. Bush or Barack Obama.
Get the Federal government out of my wallet
. Charity comes from individual
effort, not some faceless bureaucratic boondoggle.
