The Public Trough

The photo to the left is of an educrat public union apparatchik sieg heiling her support for the Politburo and squealing her displeasure over being elbowed away from the public trough.

Speaking of the public trough, O-buma wants to make the US taxpayer-funded trough available to the entire world.  Fearless Leader wants to donate our national resources to establish a One World Welfare State.  On behalf of America, he proclaimed that we have fully embraced the Millennium Development Goals.

Apparently, O-buma believes that as president he can issue fiats instead of having to deal with the cumbersome legislative process — such as when he had difficulty as senator getting his Global Poverty Act passed. That bill would have committed the U.S. to spending...$845 billion more than the U.S. already spends on aid to other nations.   

That's right, the magnanimous one wants to create an international welfare fund to the tune of roughly a TRILLION DOLLARS A YEAR with your money.  He wants to do this when the federal budget was more than a trillion dollars in the red for 2010 alone.  Just about the only talent that The One and his ideological soul mates have developed is that of giving away the resources of unborn Americans.  Through this theft-welfare program, they hope to stroke their own ponderously bloated egos.  They are too myopic to recognize how badly they embarrass themselves with this sort of self-gratification.

So why do you suppose the evil Bush administration opposed the innocuous-sounding "Millennium Development Goals"?

Well, how about its multi-pronged assault on America's national sovereignty? It commits participating nations to be bound by the International Criminal Court treaty; support regional disarmament measures for small arms and light weapons; and press for the full implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity, which Wikipedia describes as "an international legally binding treaty" that includes among its goals a "fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from genetic resources," the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, described as "an international bill of rights for women," and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which purports to be a "legally binding international instrument" that gives children the right to express their own opinions "freely in all matters affecting the child" and requires those opinions be given "due weight."

The O-bumatrons want to reduce parents to mere breeders and feeders with agents of the state raising their children and indoctrinating them in the progressive mindset.  In her book Outcome Based Education, author Peg Lucksik reveals that they want to do this through mandatory year-round schooling beginning at age 2 years.  They want to grab them when they are still infants and have them goose stepping in lockstep with the Progressive's Official Party Line by the time that they enter grade K.  Anyone who thinks that this is a bit far fetched should visit the Web site at Parental Rights.  They offer the following warning on the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

It’s usually looked upon as a positive means of holding countries accountable to protect children. But the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is so much more than that.

The doctrine of "best interests" provides decision and policy makers [UN] with the authority to substitute their own decisions for either the child’s or the parents’, providing it is based on considerations of the best interests of the child.  So instead of placing the burden of proof on the government to prove that a parent is unfit, the Convention places the burden of proof on – yes, parents. Any parent who claims that other interests might just be more important than the state’s characterization of the “best interest” of the child could end up battling the state to protect their rights as a parent.

With the O-bumites calling the tune, they plan to take away parents' rights, dominate children's lives from age two through high school graduation, and indoctrinate kids into mindlessly obedient culture warriors dedicated to the progressives' causes.  Unable to win based upon the merits of their intentions, they are reduced to brainwashing trusting, unsuspecting children.  Yuck!

May your gods be with you.
