WOLF: Is this still America?

Control freaks assault the land of the free

WashingtonTimes

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction,” warned the late PresidentReagan. It’s probably a good thing the Gipper hasn’t been forced to witness what the current generation of authoritarian rulers has done to the land of the free and home of the brave.

Public schools in San Antonio have installed video cameras, not to monitor for foul play or intruders, but to spy on kids’ eating habits. Federal food police in North Carolina have begun confiscating preschoolers’ homemade lunches because they didn’t meet U.S. Department of Agricultureguidelines. Aghast parents have noted that one 4-year-old’s confiscated lunch of a turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips and apple juice sounds more nutritious than the state-provided chicken nuggets. But that entirely misses the point. In America, parents are free to give their kids pizza and pudding with Twinkies and Twizzlers, and the government has no right to intrude.

Under the sweeping powers of Obamacare, the state has forced Catholic institutions to choose between their God and their government by demanding that they violate their own beliefs and provide birth control to their employees. Their insulting rationalization? Most Catholic women are bad Catholics and don’t follow the teachings of the church anyway. What’s more, the government has deified itself to determine which organizations are Catholic enough to be exempt. What’s next, mandated pork-chop night at the synagogues? Bacon should be a right.

Brace yourself; I’m just getting warmed up.

    The sociology and political science majors we used to laugh at in college are now running the country.

    Bacon IS a right!

    It’s beginning to make sense now, 45 years late, what my SOC101 prof said about Marshall McLuhan’s quip, “The medium is the massage.”

    The media now are in such control that they are trying to control what we think.

    There are plenty of issues that are more pressing in our schools. How about putting cameras in the classrooms to be sure the kids are being educated and not politically indoctrinated?

    We’re screwed.

    Talk talk talk, whine whine whine. Conservatives get what they deserve because they capitulate to unjust laws and tyranny and are stupid enough to fund their own destruction. Oh that’s right–you’ve allowed yourself to be trapped by economic circumstances like debt, fear of the IRS, etc. And how many of you are the recipients of force-backed government funds like pensions, social security, medicare, etc.? Shame shame shame. Don’t look to conservative “leaders” to save you because they are part of the problem.

    We have seen ticked off muslims, and government says it’s a terrible awful thing to burn their book, when they mutilate our fallen soldiers. But we can interfere with Christians on every level of belief, and that’s OK.
    We haven’t really seen ticked off Christians — keep on pushing.
