There is a false self-distrust which denies the worth of its own talent. It is not humility–it is petty pride, withholding its simple gifts from the hands of Christ because they are not more pretentious. There are men who would endow colleges, they say, if they were millionaires. They would help in the work of Bible study if they were as gifted as Henry Drummond. They would strive to lead their associates into the Christian life if they had the gifts of Dwight L. Moody. But they are not ready to give what they have and do what they can and be as it has pleased God to make them, in His service–and that is their condemnation.
… Charles Reynolds Brown (1862-1950)

Matt Drudge reports –

Democrats may have eliminated provisions on birth control and sod for the National Mall in the “job stimulus” — but buried on page 147 of the bill is stimulation for prevention of sexually transmitted diseases!

The House Democrats’ bill includes $335 million for sexually transmitted disease education and prevention programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

In the past, the CDC has used STD education funding for programs that many Members of Congress find objectionable and arguably unrelated to a mission of economic stimulus [such as funding events called ‘Booty Call’ and ‘Great Sex’ put on by an organization that received $698,000 in government funds.]

“Whether this funding has merit is not the question; the point is it has no business in an economic plan supposedly focused on job creation,” says a stimulated Hill source.

Leave it to a bunch of politicians prone to licentious lifestyles to place this in a “Stimulus” bill. What kind of stimulus are they promoting? First Pelosi’s “sex without children” focus, now this “sex without cooties” provision. It seems like somebody needs to hose down this new Congress with cold water!

Today the Senate confirmed the nomination of Tim Geithner, a self-admitted tax cheat, as the next Treasury secretary. geithnerComplicit in this outrage were several Republican Senators including Orrin Hatch. Trying to defend his participation in this travesty Hatch said:

“I do not believe we have the luxury of leaving this nomination unfilled even another day,” said Hatch, who was one of five Republicans to support Geithner’s nomination last week when it came before the Senate Finance Committee. “You’re not going to get a better person for this job.”

Obviously, Hatch misspoke; he should have said that they would not get a better Democrat for this job than Geithner. It is pathetic how little regard for the law this latest bunch of hoodlums and thieves, I mean cabinet members and White House Staff, have. In the last administration we had supremely qualified individuals disqualified from nomination for merely employing illegal aliens for short periods of time. Now we have the confirmation by the Senate of someone who should be facing an inquiry from the Internal Revenue Service about his chronic tax evasion.

Every member of the American public who cast a vote for this administration should be ashamed of themselves for being duped so easily. Of course most of them won’t get upset until they wind up paying much higher taxes in a few months and finding out their piece of the economic recovery package is a mere pittance. Then will they howl in protest?

I doubt it. They are like sheep being led to slaughter.

It’s time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. James Madison said, “We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government.”

This idea – that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power – is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man’s relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.

You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.

Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, “The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.”

Ronald Reagan, 1964
