The cycle of (big government) life

March 15th, 2012

Just don’t call it a circle jerk. That would be rude.

Did you know that the Federal Government was spending taxpayer dollars on organizations that would lobby local governments to tax sugar and soda? Were you also aware that such activity is illegal?

Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says she was aware of the lobbying activities but was not aware that is was illegal. A recent report from The Daily Caller showed that $230 million had flowed in obesity prevention grants to 30 states as part of the Communities Putting Prevention to Work Initiative. The program was established as part of the 2009 “stimulus” bill.

Jeez. It’s not only a circle jerk, it’s by way of being the Perfect Circle Jerk. And just for even more giggles, try that “ignorance of the law” bit of Czarina Sebelius’s next time you get pulled over for some infraction or other. See where that gets ya.

When the government is spending trillions of dollars by an untold number of bureaucrats this type of activity is bound to happen. Yes, it was illegal, but in a system so large and vast, it is not surprising that the Obama Administration turned their heads, looked the other way, and hoped no one noticed.

Well, yeah. But more crucial still is the fact that, as is made obvious by Czarina Sebelius’s nonchalance and unapologetic attitude about admitting to it, they don’t care whether they get caught or not. They know they’re above the law themselves–unelected, unaccountable, and untouchable by the peasantry they rule over. Or, to put it another way, they are and will remain guilty as hell, and free as a bird.

Can there be any wonder at all on anyone’s part as to why they were all so eager to “fundamentally transform” this nation into something more closely resembling a Third World banana republic? Via Jeff G, who says:

It’s a self-serving circular logic, sure. But then, logic and rationality are tools of bourgeois oppression. And so while they can be usefully appealed to when they serve a purpose, they no more constrain argument than would, say, something so hoary and old as a supposed fixed historical document signed by a bunch of dead White slaveholders and misogynists.

Yeah, well, thank goodness that archaic nonsense is no longer a consideration for them.
