Morning Briefing: June 4th, 2012

Big Spending Republicans
The U.S. Congress, with Republicans in control of the House of Representatives, hasn’t even finished a full term, but already it’s spent more more than the first 97 Congresses combined. That’s right, the Republican-controlled U.S. Congress that was elected in 2010 as a check on President Obama’s big-spending ways, is the biggest spending Congress of all time, and it’s not even close. Tell me why I have to vote Republican again? And before Speaker John Boehner starts making excuses again, keep in mind the Constitution requires all appropriations (spending) to begin in the House, which means not a dime of our money is allowed to be spent without the consent of the chamber Boehner and the Republicans control.
The Propaganda Exposed
This article from The Atlantic, not exactly the right-wing press, should be shown to every pastor, Christian, conservative, and Republican in the nation. There is simply no excuse for caving to the homosexual lobby at any time or anywhere. Despite the fact the American people erroneously believe 25% of the U.S. population is same-sex attracted, the reality is the number is 2% or lower.
Creationism Remains Popular in America
A new Gallup survey says that 46% of Americans believe the God of the Bible created human beings in their present form within the last 10,000 years, which is often described as a creationist viewpoint. Only 15% of Americans in the poll said they believed human beings evolved without direct guidance from the God of the Bible. So explain to me why we allow that 15% to indoctrinate our kids in our taxpayer-funded classrooms again?
