Quote of the Day, Part Deux
Comes from this AP story on our soon to be President’s activities on the day before his inauguration:
Then his motorcade headed for the Sasha Bruce House, a facility for homeless teens, where he grabbed a paint roller and helped volunteers who were fixing up rooms.
“We can’t allow any idle hands,” he said. “Everybody’s got to be involved.”
I don’t know about you, but the idea of the government deciding who has “idle hands” and then forcing them to “be involved” terrifies me.
The best part of this is the irony inherent in the way the article was structured…before the section about using government to force people to be involved there was a bit about the President-elect visiting wounded troops at Walter Reed, people who VOLUNTEERED to serve their country. After the section there was a bit about him visiting VOLUNTEERS working at a local high school.
