Somehow I missed this. This country looks more and more like old world socialism every day. Next we will be paying people to have children … no wait we are doing that now. The government now decrees that marriage is a good thing. The Dear One has so declared. Had Jesus Christ declared that … in their world … it would be bad, or no one’s business. Oh wait … He did, and they did.
The list of initiatives covered under the federal stimulus seems almost endless.
The $787 billion package includes $5 million to launch a media campaign promoting marriage. The campaign, set to launch later this month, encourages young singles to take a look at the benefits of marriage.

The theory is happy homes mean happy people, happy workers and happy contributors to society. “I think it would help the economy tremendously if some co-habitors got married,” said Mary Cummings, a wedding coordinator with a decided vested interest.
