Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    Obama bites the hands that voted for him

    This video is absolutely stunning... Barack Obama, a product of a voucher-type program, promised to do "what works for kids" regardless of ideology, and is now cutting children out of the DC voucher program. Is he burning bridges, or just taking these voters for granted? Maybe he thinks that no matter what he does, he's got the black vote locked up. If true, it's a really sad validation of the idea that the Democratic Party is the new plantation.

    Rush speculated on Wednesday that it was a political maneuver. The Democratic party *depends* on the ignorance of it's voters to survive. I myself suspect the teacher's unions.
