Time for a Random Link Post

. . . because my essays are not coming together lately.

Via Chicks On The Right . . . could it be?  Our very own Congress wants to go all Magyar on us?

“Capitol Hill politicians are assessing tax changes that could let the Internal  Revenue Service lay claim to a portion of the $18 trillion sitting in 401(k)  accounts and other tax breaks used by middle-class workers, including cutting  the mortgage tax deduction.”

Doug Ross says it all:  “I love the term ‘tax breaks,’ don’t you?  As if it’s the government’s money, and not yours.”

I’m suddenly reminded.  Once, I shared a worry about the federal government changing taxation rules for the Roth IRA.  Most folks on a particular investment website comment string scoffed at me.  Scoffed!

So, okay.  Let’s punish the most responsible among us.  Isn’t that what it is?  Just like student loan forgiveness, which would be fair only if students who paid for their education up front were given the same amount of money as the folks who went into debt.

Moving right along . . .

Let’s talk about defining a family.  I know, the whole “Dad, Mom, and kids” thing is so restrictive.  Flexibility would be best, no?  No.  Teaching My Two packs a punch:

“This is what happens when we start tinkering with a STRUCTURE that has been in place and worked for thousands of years.  When we embark in a DIY . . . it all comes crashing down on us, sooner or later.  And the children are the ones who get crushed.”

Read the whole thing.

Say that reminds me.  As long as we are talking about kids . . . did any of you have friends who went ape-sh*t about the “GOP rape of women” via state law requiring an ultrasound before abortion?

I did.

All I could say was, well, the ultrasound wand-thingy is no more invasive than the abortion the woman is seeking.  Which is true, but . . .

Apparently, the ultrasound is not only “no more invasive.”  It is also something the abortionist does anyway.

Hear that?

The ultrasound is something the abortionist does anyway.  Put that in your Handmaid‘s pipe and smoke it.

Next, I might as well broach the subject of that awful Allen West and his awful defamation of the Progressive Caucus by calling them communists . . .

What? Yes, it’s true:  only one of them got a lifetime achievement award from the Communist Party.  Surely the other 77-80 have no beliefs congruent with communism . . .

Or not.

On the more positive side of things . . . if the WORM can warm up to Mitt Romney, then perhaps anything is possible.  Well, by “anything is possible,” I don’t mean the preservation of our union or anything drastic, mind, but at least the type of anything we don’t really expect anymore, and that type of anything is better than no type of anything . . .

    I’m also kinda warming up to Mitt Romney. Progressives sure do have this way of perverting or distorting words meanings. Libs are highly confused individuals if they actually think an ultrasound constitutes “rape”. Especially when they can defend Roman Palansky who was convicted of raping a teenage girl and claim it wasn’t rape-rape. These people are morally bankrupt.

    Sorry I’ve been a bad bloggy neighbor! It’s true…these posts can get in the way of a good homeschool, can’t they?

    Weird…even I am warming up to Romney. The “War of the week” campaign theme is starting to get old for me. Maybe by October it will wear on some Obama supporters. I can always hope.

    Teresa, you make a good point by bringing up Polanski. I didn’t even think about leftist callousness regarding rape. While many on the left tout their “anti-rape” argument for purely cynical reasons, unfortunately it creates a very real, visceral response from individual voters who react to political issues emotionally, rather than with logic.

    Wormy: you have no obligation to be a good “neighbor”–there are simply too many blogs, too much on the internet, and too few hours in the day. Prayers for you regardless of how often you comment, doll.

    PJMom and TmT, you are quite welcome for the link. Thank you for giving me such good blog fodder.

    Cheryl, I’ll tell you the same as I told Wormy: don’t apologize! You have no obligation to me; the real world trumps the blogosphere every single time, LOL. And yeah, this War on Women thing getting aimed towards Ann Romney was the best thing to happen to the GOP for a long time.
