c.2003 M. Bennett Hooper


Conservatives, liberals do they not all wear the same coats when they are mink?
The House of Representatives of those who seek power and control of the lives of others has passed a Welfare Reorganization Bill.
This bill as proposed will spend approximately two billion dollars over the next six years.

Wars on all fronts currently cost over a billion dollars monthly.
The President proposes a tax cut.
And the elderly cannot afford much needed medications.
But those who profess belief in the solidity of family life now proclaim that single people with children on welfare who marry might receive a cash bonus.

This from those who chastised formation of a “War on Poverty”.
And who initiated a “War on Drugs” are now advocating a war against sanity.
They advocate marriages between those who have nothing to give and those who have everything to lose by continued multiplication of the wretched.
And the wretched prove once again the validity of Fanon’s theory of the wretched multiplying as a curse against humanity.

Big government grows bigger under the reins of those who hate big government.
What they do not for see is the marriage pool of the poor and the soon to be incarcerated by government sponsored marriages.
What will be legislated next?
Conditioned family violence as teenaged mothers have more and more children after marriage and child abuse escalates for those unfortunate children too young to define normalcy.

Bebe’s kids will do more than multiply unlike the slogan they will die proving once more that there is no marriage crisis.
The crisis lies within hearts and minds of those elected officials who assume the right to legislate fornication.
If the churches and other organized religious entities have failed to see sexual abstinence for the unwed, how then can a congress filled with fornicators legislate against fornication?

Legislated marriage incentives for the unwed will not protect or provide family strength for anyone other the virgins who reside in the whorehouse that was once called our nation’s capitol.
Think not, then perhaps you are not thinking after all.
The unwed shall not fornicate should begin with Congress who wildly pursue that which they claim not to condone.
All of the people who go to bed are not sleeping through this mid-summer’s night horror.

The next generation cannot begin to pay our current escalating national debt.
The virgins in the whorehouse, however, continue to be paid much as the regular declared and affirmed whores, are they not called lobbyists?

My bad.

Incredible write. I usually prefer to stay away from political writes because of the emotion generally involved. But this write speaks to both sides of the issue and has given me food for thought as well. Thanks for sharing!
