For the Sake of the Children
For the Sake of
"For the sake of the children" is the new
rallying cry of legislators and executives in every governing body across this nation.
"For the sake of the children" these "representatives" who represent
no one but contributors to their campaigns, wish to invade your most intimate and private
spaces: your churches, your schools, your homes, and indeed, your very bodies.
With callus disregard for their state constitution and
for basic common sense, a South Carolinian panel of lawyers in black robes decided that
pregnant women who take drugs are "abusing their fetuses" and must get dragged
off to prison for 10 years. It is perfectly legal to kill your fetus, but it is now not
legal to "abuse" it by abusing yourself. No doubt they'll make accidentally
falling down against the law as well. What extreme and arrogant nonsense! All "for
the sake of the children" --as if this will excuse every execrable and ludicrous
piece of legislation.
"For the sake of the children" these witless
wonders who smugly consider themselves morally ept wish to license parenthood itself.
Children begotten by unlicensed parents will be nabbed and tossed into orphanages where
they will no doubt receive the tender loving care of bureaucrats who have done so well by
us in other arenas.
"For the sake of the children" these ignorant
and foolish politicians write laws that take kids out of their homes and sling them into
foster homes, disrupting their families and no doubt confusing the hell of the kids
themselves. There are no doubt cases of child abuse, but can't we handle them sensibly? We
are now hearing more and more cases where the kids are abused in the foster homes--and a
solution that is as bad or worse than the problem is NOT a solution. It is merely another
problem. And since our elite tend to consider even looking cross-eyed at a child
"abuse" it is getting progressively more and more difficult to keep the sticky
fingers of the State off of our children.
"For the sake of the children" 59 little girls
underwent a forced gynecological exam at their school. Some of the said "NO!" to
the exam, but were forced to undergo the ordeal anyway. They were not allowed to call
their parents and were not allowed to leave. The entire educational apparatus put out
reams of blather about how these exams were all for "for the sake of the
children." Apparently, the State wants to be able to shove its nose and its fingers
into every crevice of the body politic, including that of 11 year old girls.
"For the sake of the children" an irate mother
who slapped her screaming tantrumming two-year old was arrested, jailed, and held on
$20,000 bail. I'm sure no burglar, rapist, or random murderer got that kind of bail. Does
this make sense to anyone? It sure doesn't to me.
Lest any mentally-challenged person take this wrong, this
is not an argument for child abuse. Children need both love and discipline,
and without either one of those essential things, our kids end up on hard roads to nowhere
fast. We can easily see that. Our capacity to love may still be intact, but our power to
discipline has been taken out of our hands by pseudo-well-meaning fakers.
"For the sake of the children" the media, the
bought and paid for propaganda writers for the foundations, bureaucrats and politicians
are making raids and forays into our most private lives. Dangerous and strikingly stupid
legislation is furiously being written and will no doubt be passed by these mountebanks
who pretend to represent us. Licensing parents? Sounds like Red China, doesn't it? To tell
the truth, it is getting harder to tell the difference between Red China and America. Both
countries have sent tanks against their citizens. Both governments are decidedly
pro-abortion, even when a probable majority of their citizens are not. Both countries are
repressive to individual freedom. One major difference seems to be that Red China is
honest about it, while here, fortunes are spent attempting to convince people that it is
all "for the sake of the children."
Lastly, let's take a quick look at the people pushing
this agenda: the federal government and the media. In order to "save the
children" Janet Reno sent tanks to lob flammable CS gas into a church, thus ensuring
the death by fire of most everyone inside, including the 17 children. The media, on cue
for its FBI handlers, cheered, applauded, and immediately launched its TV MOVIE
about the event, which was complete with sensationalist lies.
At Ruby Ridge, a US Marshal shot a 14 year old boy in the
back as he was running away and killed him. An FBI sharpshooter shot a woman with a baby
in her arms and killed her. The media had been busy telling us all along that these people
deserved to die for their beliefs. This is America, circa 1992.
These are the people who wish to pass
unaccountable, unconstitutional, and unbelievably moronic laws "for the sake of the
children"--these same people who killed the children at Waco, Ruby Ridge, and no
doubt other places as well. They don't mind killing children, just so long as it
"saves" them. Saves them for what, Janet? Have you answered that question to
your own satisfaction yet? You sure haven't answered it to mine.
These people, media and politicians alike, are not merely
smugly self-righteous idiots. They are also dangerous. The next time you hear "for
the sake of the children," beware. By this hypocritical slogan they mean to
control you and your children. I say this: For our sake, and the sake of our children, we
need to put these hypocritical liars out of business. For our sake, and the sake of our
children, these power-hungry illogical insectoids need to be (figuratively) hamstrung,
gelded, and put out to pasture.
Leave us and our kids alone. Come on, America. Use
what backbone you have left and draw that line in the sand.
