Again, not everything is government’s job

By:  Diane Benjamin The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’ Ronald Reagan Dick Durbin thinks everything is government’s job.  He also thinks the cost is immaterial.  Churches and families used to take care of each other.  That was before  government saw they can […]
