Quick quotes.


"Four years ago, while the nation's eyes were fixed on the
devastation in New York City, California's Democrat-controlled
Legislature attacked marriage by enacting a sweeping domestic
partner bill one day after September 11. Yesterday, while the
nation was still reeling from the horrors of Hurricane Katrina, the
Legislature voted to blow away marriage completely by doing away
with its essential requirement---that a wedding have a bride and a
groom. Perhaps they're hoping that Californians are so distracted
by the unfolding tragedy in New Orleans that they won't notice
their out-of-control politicians in Sacramento. Gov. Schwarzenegger
has the power to terminate this radical plan to create counterfeit
marriage. He can either side with the 61 percent of Californians
who voted to protect marriage in a statewide initiative, or he
can side with the radical Democrats." ---Robert Knight


"We are now reaping the benefits of a welfare state. For more years
than most can remember, we have been told by those holding office
that they will take care of us. We have provided food, clothing
and shelter to the extent that the recipients became entirely
dependent on government resources to live. They have reached the
point that no longer do they have the knowledge to take care of
themselves. They will sit there and drown or go hungry, and curse
the fact that the government has not gotten them out of this
mess. When it is all said and done, there is but one person who
is responsible for me, and that is me. The responsibility falls
to me to take care of my family, not the government. Society,
not government, has an obligation to provide care and sustenance
to those who, because of age or physical impairment cannot take
care of themselves, but able-bodied people who stand around
and complain that no one is doing anything for them deserve
whatever the fates cast in their direction. Life is hard, and you
either get tougher or you get washed away---it is as simple as
that. Politicians will never, ever take care of you---they only
want one thing from you, and that is to stay in power as long as
they can. In a situation like Katrina, they will stand in front
of the cameras and microphones and denigrate everyone above them
in government to take the eye off of their pathetic efforts. This
is a situation that they have created, and now the good citizens
of the area will have to step in and clean up the mess that
has been created by the politicians. It won't happen overnight,
but it will happen---there are too many good people who live in
that area for it not to happen. I love the people of New Orleans
and the surrounding parishes, but I despise the politicians... I
just hope that when the area is rebuilt, they stay away from the
massive welfare system they had before---absolutely no good comes
from welfare. It depletes available resources, making it ever more
difficult for what passes as government to respond to the true
needs of the community."---Robert Johnson, retired NOPD captain
