Juno What I'm Saying?

The AP reports:

The nation's teen birth rate has risen for the first time in 14 years, according to a new government report.

Can you say abstinence only programs?

"It took us by surprise," said Stephanie Ventura of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a co-author of the report.

Turns out that's exactly what all the teen moms said when those rascally, unwrapped dads didn't pull out.

Seriously, the Republicans push for abstinence only programs, indeed their eager funding of them, symbolizes their twisted take on federal government. Only fund what doesn't work, then point to this failure as a sign federal action doesn't work. And in the meantime there's plenty of collateral damage, but that doesn't matter.

I say: can you say hispanic illegal immigration and nine kids in a two bedroom house and a nice hefty welfare check?

Your point is?

And this racist diatribe (so typical of you) relates to the original post how?

Yeah, abortions are way up under Bush too.

And, tortureboy, it's going to be sweet watching you GOP lizardbrains hate yourselves right into a permanent political minority. So keep it up.

Actually, McC, the birth rate for white teens increased more than that for hispanic teens. According to the CDC, at any rate, but what would the CDC know. I mean, they only study this stuff. I am sure your knee-jerk reaction is much more correct.

The bulk of the hefty welfare checks, then, are going to the white teen mothers, given what we know about the link between poverty and teen pregnancy. Oh, but we only know that link because of the CDC and the National Center for Health Statistics. Again, I doubt their peer-reviewed research could possibly stand up to the amount of thought and foresight you put into your reply. I am sure Rush Limbaugh, Ann Fucking Coulter and Sean Hannity have droves of epidemiologists and statisticians at their fingertips so they can render the best, most well-informed data to their scores of listeners.

How the hell did Lou Dobbs find his way to this blog?

Now pardon Rickey while he spreads his seed...

George called it. Republicans campaign by talking about how government doesn't work, and when they get elected they proceed to prove it, by golly.
