Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

What is the definition of "stimulus"?

I was happy as a clam when I heard that family planning funds were being pulled from the package. It seems the celebration was premature.

"Stimulus" Bill Still Includes $335 Million Handout for Condoms, Sex-Ed Programs
By Kathleen Gilbert

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 28, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Just one day after millions of dollars in contraception and abortion handouts in Obama's nearly $1 trillion economic stimulus package were made public and immediately discarded, news has come to light of another $335 million set aside for condoms and sexually explicit "STD prevention" programs.

The Drudge Report headlined the discovery of another chunk of stimulus money headed primarily for promoting sexually-transmitted disease (STD) prevention programs, via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In addition to funding graphic sex-education programs and birth-control methods such as condoms, the CDC has come under fire for pouring taxpayer funds into irresponsible and obscene STD prevention programs, which sometimes openly promote promiscuity."

All too often many of CDC's largest grantees were hosting events that produced questionable, if any, results and in some cases promoted activities in direct contradiction with known risk-behaviors for spreading the disease," wrote Sen. Tom Coburn in a 2007 Senate subcommittee report.

Among the concerns raised in the report was the CDC's granting millions of dollars to events featuring prostitutes, transgender beauty contests, and "sex workshops."

In addition, the CDC scheduled a National STD Prevention Conference in 2006 with a panel called, “Are Abstinence-Only-Until-Marriage Programs a Threat to Public Health?” The panel invited speakers claiming abstinence-until-marriage programs were ineffective and are even dangerous.

“It’s obvious that Congressional Democrats are trying to pull the wool over Americans’ eyes as they rush this so-called ‘stimulus’ bill through Congress, while middle-class taxpayers are still finding out about frivolous spending provisions that have been hidden in the bill,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain in a press release regarding the STD-prevention spending.

“It is one thing to believe that we can borrow and spend our way out of recession like Bobby Bright does, but it is quite another to use this trillion dollar spending bill as a vehicle for liberal pet programs,” he said.

Though Washington legislators are still starkly divided along party lines over the bill, it is expected to pass the Democrat-led House today.

Time to get a hold of my Representative again. God bless him but that man is probably getting tired of me. Too bad, no one broke his arm to run for office.

UPDATE: Too late, the damned thing had already passed when I posted this article. NUTS!!

It seems that the Democrats want everyone to "screw" their hearts out, they just want anyone to have children. Can you guess why?
