Today, the Obama Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released an official policy directive rewriting the welfare reform law of 1996. The new policy guts the federal work requirements that were the foundation of the reform law. The Obama directive bludgeons the letter and intent of the actual reform legislation.
This is, of course, just another piece of Obama’s re-election strategy: give all the special interest groups that usually vote left (in this case, people on public assistance) a little extra reason to keep him in office, i.e, increase the turnout of his “base,” people who take other people’s money by way of government strong arm via taxation.
In other words, buying votes with tax money.

UPDATE: It occurs to me that speculations that Obama is a secret Muslim are probably misplaced. Obama clearly believes in the Trinity, since he is now not only Executive, but also Legislator and Judge. I wasn’t sure if I should make the title of this post use the singular form of the verb “strike” or the plural “strikes.” So in the first appearance, I made it the plural “strike,” stressing the Three Persons of his identity, and I have now changed it to the singular “strikes,” stressing the Unity of Obama.
Now I’m going somewhere to light a candle…. to the Constitution, since it no longer seems to matter.
