4 Shocking Things Obama Wants You to Pay For

When the government of the people provides a service, those governed often too quickly forget that the service being provided was bought and paid for by tax dollars. That is, money that was yours is now in the hands of bureaucrats in Washington. Here is a list of four shocking things President Obama expects you to pay for after his first week in office.

4. Digital Television in Every American Living Room
Do you remember in Back to the Future where Marty is sitting at his grandparents' dining room table in 1955 and they had finally gotten their first television set working? They ask Marty if his family has a TV to which he replies, "We've got two of them." They laugh and say, "He's joking. Nobody has two television sets!

1950's TV

What used to be a luxury, turned commonplace, and has now become a right.

The so-called "stimulus package" that the House passed (244-188) yesterday has a provision in the Senate's version to provide digital-to-analog converter boxes to the tune of $650 million! (Here's the text of the bill just in case you don't believe me.) Of course television is transitioning to a digital-only signal as of February 19, 2009, but this provision in the bill effectively makes digital television a right afforded to all Americans.

3. The Ability to Download Porn Faster
The internet is one of the wonders of the modern world. Almost 1.5 billion people are connected to it. It has become the storehouse of the knowledge and experiences of the entire human race. And as soon as any technology becomes available, this human race uses it to sell sex to one another.

Even fragments of papyrus discovered in an ancient trash pile in Egypt contain erotic literature and sex manuals. We, as a species, are obsessed with the topic.


Your government understands that, so the House version of the stimulus package designates almost $3 billion for the development of wireless internet systems and broadband connectivity to rural areas. For a mere $3 billion dollars, now everyone in America can stop waiting for porn and get it now. Insert your own "stimulus package" joke here, if you must.

2. The Re-elect President Obama Campaign

Back during the 2008 presidential campaign an organization kept popping up in the news that was relatively new to most Americans. Do you remember what it was? Here are a few hints.
The organization was investigated by the FBI for suspected voter fraud.
Then the organization admitted to voter fraud.
Then the McCain campaign was accused of mudslinging for pointing it out.

And they registered these people to vote. Three times each.

If you guessed ACORN you would be correct!

Well, the stimulus package also has $4.19 billion set aside for "neighborhood stabilization activities," which groups such as ACORN fall under. This is either a way of saying, "thank you" to those who helped Obama get elected or it is padding their budgets for the 2012 run.

But with $4.19 billion dollars coming their way, it appears to be both.

1. Reducing the Number of Poor People - By Killing Them
When President Barack Obama signed the executive order to rescind the Mexico City Policy which barred federal finances from being used to support organizations that provide or promote abortions in foreign countries, he was praised by Tod Preston, Vice President of Population Action International.

Population Action International's mission statement reads, "Population Action International works to ensure that every person has the right and access to sexual and reproductive health, so that humanity and the natural environment can exist in balance and fewer people live in poverty." [emphasis mine] Which sounds pretty good until you understand that this is a group that supports making federal money available to provide abortions to impoverished women in other parts of the world.

The problem with Hitler was that he framed his purpose poorly. Instead of "extermination of the Jewish race," he should have spun it to say that under his plan, "fewer Jewish people would live in poverty."

So federal tax dollars (aka your money) will go toward killing the impoverished before they take their first breath, thereby reducing the number of people who live in poverty.

That's the difference between conservatives and liberals.

Conservatives would read that as "reducing the number of people who live in poverty."
Liberals read it as "reducing the number of people who live in poverty."

There is a subtle distinction, but one is morally good. The other is at best eugenics and at worst genocide.

Here's an idea: Let's reduce the number of poor people in the world by teaching them how to make money and provide for their families because killing them off is not an option.

That would be change we can believe in.
