Today the President released his 2007 Fiscal Year Budget Request. The winners?

Abstinence and defense. A true multilateral strategy on terror, freedom and fear. Defending the homefront is neither cheap nor easy.

Sanctioning repressive regimes is expensive:

  • abstinence only until marriage programs increased to $204 million
  • flat funding of $50 million for Title V and $283 million for Title X family planning services
  • abstinence only until marriage programs increased to $204 million

This includes the expressed desire of giving $4.5 million for abstinence program evaluations each year.

Policing and defending the sancity of virginity is an expensive business.

  • a request of $250 million for healthy marriages and strengthening fathering initiative

Watching Rome burn is next week’s goal.
