Zero-Sum Zeroes Out
Were you aware that the US Government spends your tax dollars on an “Office of Population Affairs“?
Margaret Sanger, call your office!
From Tricia Erickson:
I am so sick and tired, yes, sick and tired, of hearing about the “War On Women” while women fill abortionist’s offices to terminate the life of their own female (and male) babies.
Erickson makes a number of serious points in the article.
Yours truly is left asking: Like the debt, statists think they can zero-out themselves with impunity?
Yet isn’t it odd that the Government is replacing those murdered babies with millions upon millions of invading illegals? It’s as if they’ve applied their zero-sum economics to population control, realizing at the last moment that policies consistent with their foundational values are self destructive.
Yours truly recalls running some (crude) numbers for Florida 2000. Thanks to RvW, apparently there were roughly 100,000 liberal ghosts – thus 35,000 likely voters missing from Florida rolls, of which statistically about 80% would have voted Gore. He’d have had it by a narrow but sustainable majority. Irony of sick ironies, the Supremes handed it to Bush anyway. Zero!
Today is Tisha B’Av , the Ninth of Av, a day in Jewish history upon which many calamities fell and a day in which we mourn loss.
As an American, we might ask: America has Thanks Giving Day and the Fourth. Would it be difficult to identify America’s Ninth of Av?
