Others are happy the government is providing them healthcare – this is the same government that has mismanaged and bankrupted every other social help program. And apparently many think they need the government to define marriage for them. Perhaps the government should stay out of the relationship business – and groups/people/etc. should stop inviting them in. While all of that was going on, I think many missed this:
Not that those other issues are unimportant, and they badly need adult discussion rather than sound bite drive-bys, but are our priorities correct or is Rome burning as we fiddle away?
