Our best interest…

During a TV/Radio broadcast today concerning Hurricane Wilma slamming into Florida Governor Jeb Bush commented on residents who ignored the mandatory evacuation warnings and settled in for the brutal weather:

In our society you can’t force people to do what’s in their best interest…

You can imagine the inquisitive stares I received as I gut-laughed for five minutes straight…
EVERY DAY the government uses FORCE to pay for programs they believe to be in our best interest! By FORCE, the government takes and spends billions and billions of dollars claiming that this is what America wants, what their constituents want, when typically… it isn’t!
By FORCE the government is paying for a war,initially touted to be in our BEST INTEREST, that most American’s disagree with. Through FORCE the people pay for a failing education system, the lost and uncessary battle of the ‘War on Drugs,’ religious institutions through ‘Faith-Based Initiatives,’ the welfare state and the list goes on and on…
Monday’s are typically rough and humorless for me, thanks for breaking the monotony Jeb.
