Have to keep this one away from the partner . . . he's on the verge of wanting us to move out of state because of this continuing and dangerous lunacy at the State House.
Unfortunately, I didn't see very many red shirts out there today on the U of A campus - surprised and disappointed me a bit. What's up with the lack of political awareness Tucson?
I checked out Jeff's link above and regret to inform folks that it is pure right-wing property rights propaganda as far as I can tell. Lots of links to "christian" this and that - what, nothing for the Buddhists, Jews, Hindus, Muslims, Agnostics, Atheists, and etc.? Anyway, you get the drift. So check it out if you wish, but be forewarned. I don't think there is an alternative centrist or leftist site on this issue as counterbalance.
TT seems to think the Welfare State, which he's attacking, is about people receiving welfare payments . . .of course he's wrong as it is mainly about charting strong public policies that provide social security, education and other absolutely necessary bits of public welfare and wellbeing. Had we had a strong Welfare State during the past 30 years we might very well have stopped the steady decline in personal income that has led to these dismal marriage statistics. The simple fact is that folks with decent jobs and a supportive community are much more likely to marry and create strong family bonds than folks with no jobs and poor education. It has little to do with race . . .IMHO.
