A View from the Altar / Martin’s reckless view of government

Martin’s reckless view of government

CNN’s Roland Martin offers us an editorial here in which he criticizes Sarah Palin for objecting to Michelle Obama’s campaign against childhood obesity.  Complying with liberal talking points assigned from leftwing headquarters, Martin is obliged to use the word “stupid” in connection with Palin, and so he gets that chore done in his very first sentence.  The rest of his article is devoted to proving that there are, indeed, more fat kids now than when there were fewer.

Let it be said and none dare dispute the man, Fat. Kids. Are. A. Problem.

And reading straight from the liberal playbook, if there is a problem, then the government must police this and correct it.

The remarks he quotes from Palin amount to saying that if kids are the responsibility of parents, not the government.  Martin’s angry rhetoric shows he is incapable of absorbing the argument that there are some things that are none of the government’s business.

And this obsessively busybodyish view of government is strangling America.  There is very little that Americans can do with their own resources that does not involve enormous time and money wasted on mollifying the nanny state.  You can’t install window on your home without going through multiple licenses and inspections from the government.  You can’t sell a doughnut to your neighbor without the same degree of oppressive, intrusive, expensive drag from people whose involvement adds no value and detracts much.

Al Queda recently said they’d kill America by the death of a thousand cuts.  If they’d check more carefully, they’d see America’s home grown leftists are already way down the same path.

P.S. to Martin:  You don’t look all that skinny to me.  Camera angle?

Government too late rescuing this fat kid? (Image links to newsone.com.)
