    (Almost as if taken straight from the instruction manual for the Vulcan MindMeld, the Government now wants you to consider them part of your "Federal Family". There are a limited number of guesses available as to where the Government would like to be invited first: It's probably a toss up between your bedroom and your bank account. Michelle, instead, would go straight for your refrigerator and your pantry.)

    "In a creative use of language, the government may be trying to, perhaps not so subtly, convince you of its well-meaning intentions. In a day and age where the term “federal government” evokes feelings of disillusionment, and for some, even disgust, the Obama administration is opting for the softer, and evidently preferable term “federal family.”

    But does “federal family” elicit warm, familial feelings, or does it instead conjure images of Big Brother and 1984?

    The Palm Beach Post notes that in the flurry of official communications surrounding the onset and aftermath of Hurricane Irene, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) repeatedly used the phrase “federal family” when describing the Obama administration’s response to the storm.

    The term wasn’t coined by the Obama administration, but it certainly seems to have taken it to a whole other level."

    Obama's vision for America is opposite to mine. No, to big government. It has made us weaker as a people.

    If the government was to be able to indoctrinate this mindset into the public, there would be no stopping anything they wanted to lay on us.
    Personally....I doubt it would ever fly.

    Did you realize that Glenn Beck is responsible for The Blaze?....which makes it simply just another collection of religious intolerance and anti Obama rants? This site is even more toxic than Rush, Drudge, or Fox.

    Not trying to pick a fight...just checking.
