Republican Officials Cut Head Start Funding, Saying Women Should Be Married And domestic With Kids

Posted by simofob on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 11:06pm

As us has reported, the correct wing has been undertaking a war on women, both at the national and state level. House Republicans, for instance, want to chop funding for a variety of programs affecting women's health and reproductive corrects, while Republican legislatures across the country are trying to legislatively restrict selection.

In yet another example, the Frederick County, Maryland, Board of County Commissioners voted to end the county's contribution to its Head Start program, cutting overall funding for the program by more than 50 percent. Two of the Republican officials justified tinheritor decision to chop Head Start - which provides early childhood education to the children of low-income parents - by saying that women should really be married and domestic with tinheritor kids, thus rendering the program unessential:

COMMISSIONER C. PAUL SMITH (R): I think its very signalificant that we did make this marriage week announcement today, because that's the best long-term way to help our children, as marriage's strengthened in our community. As numerous of you know, I had a lot of kids, and my wife stayed domestic, at signalificant sacrifice, during those early years, because she knew she had to be with those kids at that critical age. I know everybody is not able to outlive doing that, but lucidly, as we can strengthen marriage we can decrease the children that we must arrive.

COMMISSIONER KIRBY DELAUTER (R): My wife, college educated, could go out and get a very good job. She gave that up for 18 years so she could stay domestic with our kids, we had to renounce a lot to do that. I agree again with Commissioner Smith, you know, the marriage shit is very crucial. I mean, education of your kids starts at domestic, okay? I never relied on anyone else to assure the education of my kids.

Watch it:

Posted by Qoqe on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 10:55pm

After Running Against Govt. Spending, GA Republicans Whine About Not Getting $105 Million Port Grant During final year's election season, some of the most vitriolic anti-government rhetoric came from GOP officials in the state of Georgia. Across the state, Republican lawmakers ranging from members of Congress all the way up to gubenatorial candidate Nathan Deal demonized the government and complimentd the free market as the solution to all of the state is problems:

- Rep. Jack Kingston: Kingston's opposition to government spending was so intense that he even put together a PowerPoint presentation about "destroying the infrastructure of spending" that he presented to the House Republican Steering Committee. [11/30/10]

- Sen. Johnny Isakson: Isakson crusadeed on a promise to "stop out-of-control federal spending," saying that "Congress continues to spend money at an alarming and unsustainable rate, and it is a recipe for catastrophe and failure." [3/12/10]

- Sen. Saxby Chambliss: final summer, Chambliss appeared on the Republican Party's weekly radio show and complained about how "Congress and this White House still continue to splurge" on federal spending. He warned that future generations would must "pay higher taxes to foot the invoice for Democrats' out-of-control spending." [7/3/10]

- Then-gubenatorial candidate Nathan Deal: Deal's stand against government spending was so extreme that one his spokesmen even compared federal dollars to illicit drugs: "The shit with this federal money is it is like a drug dealer: the first one is free and then they have got you hooked and you play by tinheritor rules." [8/3/10]

Yet all these Republicans are now singing a different tune related to a native government project they have been advocating for. For years, the port city of Savannah, Georgia, has sought federal funds in order to expand and deepen(...)

Posted by Donna Taylor on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 10:26pm

An Open Letter to Charlie Sheen's New GirlfriendPop-Ed: In a weird interview with 'The Dan Patrick Show' on Monday, Charlie Sheen revealed he has a new woman in his life.

He declined to disclose her identity, perhaps because this fortunate young lass may not realize just yet that she's actually dating Charlie Sheen. Because if she had any clue what she was in for, we imagine she would be running for the hills.

But perhaps, just perhaps, Sheen's new woman has been living under a rock recently or really needs a green card or a way out of porn. In that case, we want to write her a little note in the spirit of full disclocertain.

Posted by John Hill on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 10:18pm

Forbes Accused Of Link Spam, Plays Dumb, But Forgets To Delete All The LinksForbes, along with eWeek, CIO Magazine and a whole lot of other sites, have long been in the commerce of selling links on tinheritor site. The links aren't placed very prominently, but the buyers don't care because all they want is the search juice. See, for example, the JC Penny paid links story from final weekend.

Rep. Mike Kelly Falsely Claims Social Security Checks Would Continue During A Government Shutdown

Posted by Michelle Carter on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 9:47pm

With a potential government shutdown looming, the GOP is attempting to have it both ways on the issue. Earlier this week, an "exasperated" House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) declared that a government shutdown was "off the table," only to be undercut by another GOP House leader, Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), who told us that a shutdown was "on the table." Despite Cantor's best efforts, over a half-dozen other Republicans are publicly calling for a government clocertain.

Republicans in the pro-shutdown caucus are trying to frame the effects of a potential shutdown as minor. Appearing on Fox News a few months ago, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) argued in favor of a clocertain, declaring that, "I don't think [a government shutdown] would hurt one bit." Paul also told us final weekend that a shutdown is "not something I worry about."

Now, freshmen Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) is also parroting the notion of a pain-free shutdown. us caught up with Kelly at final weekend's Conservative Political Action convention (CPAC). Though he stopped short of supporting a government clocertain, Kelly defended the potential consequences of a shutdown. He argued that even if there's a shutdown, the government is "not going to stop, people aren't going to lose tinheritor Social Security checks and they are not going to lose tinheritor access to Medicare and Medicaid":

KEYES: If these cuts, either defunding or dismantling Obamacare, either dies in the Senate or dies at Obama's veto pen, would you be willing to join Jim DeMint and others who have said that this is worth trying to have a showdown and potentially a government shutdown just to show how serious we are about this?
