What Kind of Society Do We Want to Engender?

A while ago, Obama’s “senior adviser”, the unelected Valerie Jarrett, spoke out (on Obama’s behalf, and apparently with his blessing) against therapies intended to change sexual orientation. Obama wants to ban these therapies, arguing that they’re psychologically harmful. My immediate reactions were: Where and when did he get his psychiatric degree? And, what about freedom of choice?

If the patient wants the therapy, why should the government BAN the therapy? Isn’t the psychological well-being of the individual more important than political correctness or the ideology of a small subset of the population?

Guess not. But I digress …

With his illegal amnesty action, Barack Obama is predicted to bestow as much as $1.7 BILLION on illegal aliens over the next decade, mostly in the form of earned income tax credits, which in some cases “returns” more money to a recipient than the person ever paid in taxes (if any).

If that’s not bad enough, the head of the IRS has confirmed that illegal aliens who benefit from Obama’s illegal “amnesty” program by obtaining Social Security numbers will be allowed to file tax returns going back years, which may net an illegal alien family as much as $35,000 in one fell swoop, emphasis on fell (at least for the citizens and legal immigrants who paid the taxes that are being redistributed to people who have no legal or moral right to be in our country in the first place, much less to collect a tax “return”).
