Yesterday, Seraphic Secret reported that the Obama administration is going to spend $1.5 million tax dollars to find out why lesbians are fat.
This is, after all, a burning social issue that demands attention by the federal government.
Because we are concerned, patriotic citizens, Seraphic Secret has conducted its own study of fat lesbians—at no cost to you the American tax payer.
Okay, Seraphic Secret admits that $1.5 million is not a lot of money.
President Obama and the Democrats have so redefined the concept of money and debt, that anything below trillions and billions, is barely worthy of note.
But this $1.5 million dollar grant—your tax dollars at work—to answer the burning question: why are lesbians obese?, is symptomatic of a structural malignancy, a radical ideology that invests government with increasing amounts of money and power which, inevitably, curtails individual liberty.
