A private charity helping poor to obtain housing? That is not the same thing as public money!

Here are Rick Santorum's grades:

Rated 0% by NARAL, indicating a pro-life voting record. (Dec 2003)
Voted YES on $40B in reduced federal overall spending. (Dec 2005)
Voted YES on prioritizing national debt reduction below tax cuts. (Apr 2000)
Voted YES on 1998 GOP budget. (May 1997)
Voted YES on Balanced-budget constitutional amendment. (Mar 1997)

Rated 25% by CURE, indicating anti-rehabilitation crime votes. (Dec 2000)
Rated 27% by the NEA, indicating anti-public education votes. (Dec 2003)
Rated 0% by the LCV, indicating anti-environment votes. (Dec 2003)
Rated 100% by CATO, indicating a pro-free trade voting record. (Dec 2002)
Rated 0% by APHA, indicating a anti-public health voting record. (Dec 2003)
Rated 0% by the AFL-CIO, indicating an anti-union voting record. (Dec 2003)
Rated 81% by NTU, indicating a “Taxpayer’s Friend” on tax votes. (Dec 2003)

Those are pretty good grades. In contrast, we have Romney's comment that he cut taxes(!)...but then he raised state government fees so that there was basically no net decrease state spending in his years as governor.

Avastin does NOT extend life. It might increase progression free survival but NOT over all survival. (So your tumors stay put for a while longer then blossom and kill you in the same time frame. And this does NOT mean you have better quality of life. Avastin can have many serous and unwelcome side effects.

And citing one lady in New Mexico who claims that Avastin saved her life is junk science. I the controlled studies, it didn't "save" anyone.

The author's faith in the men and women of the U.S. military is commendable. However, she simply does not know what the outcome will be. The "hysteria" (how about calling it grave misapprehension?) might not be inappropriate. The trojan horse of political correctness has been allowed to be brought in the gates. How bad will it be? The VFW is saying that the volunteer military might be at stake. Is this correct? Or will the military carry on relatively unscathed? No one knows.

"Overprotective? Well the actor "dad" who is arguing with his son can't be call OVER-protective when he argues against his son entering into what has been described by even gay activists as a "sewer of drugs and promiscuous sex", where life expectancy takes a huge hit. Any dad who doesn't argue against it is being under-protective.

But again, the point is that this is more about good manners. One doesn't butt into another's personal matters even if they are spilling into the public venue.

suppose it's a father and daughter and he is arguing with her about her current boyfriend. How many would "intervene" against the "heterosexual bullying"? Pretty much zero. It's called minding your own business.

"She’s like Jan Brady, only not as groovy."

That is a hilarious sentence. (The rest of the essay was good, too.)
