How do you know when a politician is pushing an agenda instead of actually looking out for the best interests of the people that they (are supposed to) represent? You can tell when they hurt those people (and their children) under the excuse of helping them.
It’s kind of like telling people that you’re taking their money at gunpoint so that you can give them money to help them through a bad economy. The people would have been better off not having their money taken in the first place. They’d have more of it, and they’d have one less bureaucratic headache to deal with, too.
But political leftists like those we see in the current administration are nothing if not busybodies using our tax dollars against us and holding us hostage to giving our own money back to us.
A perfect example of this is a recent Biden administration move to defund education in some schools. I’m sure that it’s to protect the children, right? Samantha Flom writes,
Reports that the Biden administration has been withholding funds from school archery and hunting programs have “alarmed” two Republican senators.
According to a July 10 letter obtained by The Epoch Times, Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) were notified by multiple schools of the Department of Education’s shift in policy following the enactment of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA).
“We were alarmed to learn recently that the Department of Education has misinterpreted the BCSA [sic] to require the defunding of certain longstanding educational and enrichment programs—specifically, archery and hunter education classes—for thousands of children, who rely on these programs to develop life skills, learn firearm safety and build self-esteem,” the senators wrote to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona.
That’s right. Apparently, the Biden administration seems to think that the best way to keep kids safe from firearms is to make sure that those kids don’t know how to be safe with firearms.
Makes perfect sense, right?
Of course it doesn’t, no more than does any of the other excuses that those in governments use to try to justify disarming law abiding Americans and working to make those people dependent on the government.
These kids deserve better. The American people deserve better.
