Some Perspective

Dave Killion — April 13, 2011

In the past couple days I have seen two different versions of this –

“Remember when teachers, public employees, union thugs, Planned Parenthood, artists and PBS/NPR crashed the stock market, wiped out half of our 401Ks, took trillions in TARP money, spilled oil in the Gulf of Mexico, gave themselves billions in bonuses, and paid no taxes? Yeah, me neither….”

I can just imagine my progressive acquaintances giggling, high-fiving, and saying, “Oh, snap!” to each other. But as pleased as I am with Planned Parenthood for not polluting the Gulf, I don’t find that a reason for letting them continue to leech off the taxpayer. Or put another way –

Remember when teachers, public employees, union thugs, Planned Parenthood, artists and PBS/NPR advanced their agendas and self-interest using money they collected voluntarily, rather than through the threat of state violence? Yeah, me neither….”
