Nanny State Gone Wild: Defining Dependency Up
The greatest gifts you can give your children can't be boxed and bowed. Consider the timeless gift of self-sufficiency -- a stubborn thirst to leave the nest, make it on your own and live as a free-willed adult. It's a concept that Big Nanny Democrats are sabotaging at every legislative turn.
I propose a new symbol for the Democrats. Out: donkey. In: a giant adult pacifier.
I was installing a new garbage disposal yesterday and on the outside of the box it mentioned that the warranty gave you certain "legal rights" but that your "rights" may vary depending on which state you live in.
That means that either states can either grant and withold "rights" or that these are not rights at all but they are simply laws.
During this debate we should all remember where our rights come from: God. They are human rights that we believe to be self-evident and our founding documents tell government that they can't infringe upon them.
Congress may pass a law regarding health care but that won't give you a right to it since a future congress can simply take it away again.
