Anytime a politician does anything for "the children," keep an eye on your wallet

| No Comments

Anong the more nauseating moments in Nancy Pelosi's coronation yesterday was this:

"For our daughters and granddaughters, today we have broken the marble ceiling,'' she said. ``For our daughters and our granddaughters now, the sky is the limit.''

I do not want my daughters to turn out like Nancy Pelosi, or any other liberal female pseudo-Catholic politician. I did not think their future happiness hinged upon the success of any politician.

And even though Pelosi says that Congress will now consider "the children" in all of its business, I'm a little nervous. For our family, the only things I want from any government is to 1) let us raise our kids in the way we see fit; and 2) let us keep as much of our money as possible. Last year, we paid something like $15,000 in Federal, state, and local taxes. That's more than we spent on groceries, or anything else except our mortgage. Somehow, I don't think helping "the children" in those two areas will be on Speaker Pelosi's agenda.
