$10 million for Head Start “gratefully accepted”. The White House has since the sequester last spring doggedly refused all offers to fund the handful of guards necessary to conduct White House tours; since October 1st, the government has refused to permit states to pay to reopen places like the Grand Canyon, Smokey Mountain National Park and Mt. Rushmore. The military has told Catholic chaplains that they will be arrested if they attempt to perform mass, even as volunteers, on military property.
If you can’t see a pattern here, you’ve got your eyes wide shut.
