No really, it’s getting to that point. I can’t believe how much stupid, wasteful, hurtful, deadly, unjustified horsecrap my federal tax dollars are going to.
Where are all the goddamned conservatives who claim they are sick of seeing their tax money wasted? This is so much worse than a $200 hammer. It’s millions to big pharma for overpriced pills, billions for a deadly and unjustified war, and $500 million to anti-gay groups to “promote and strengthen opposite-sex marriage.” Here is THE quote you should read (bold mine):
Assistant Health and Human Services Secretary Wade Horn said that the financial windfall is not intended to specifically oppose same-sex marriage, although the President is a major supporter of a proposed amendment to ban gay marriage in the Constitution.
Horn said, however, that none of the money could be used to promote or support same-sex marriage in Massachusetts where gay marriage is legal.
So. Unconstitutional. I’m sputtering maledictions as I write this. This sort of cherry-picking of “causes” to fund with this faith-based initiative crap is exactly why the state should not be involved with religion.
Right now, I totally respect anyone brave enough to refuse to pay their taxes. Probably about 90% of it is going to shit with this bunch. Animals.
