Today's Paradox

Abstinence programs do not work. Hence the Congress wants to spend more money on abstinence programs than George Bush even asked for. Five days ago:

A spending bill before Congress for the Department of Health and Human Services would provide $141 million in assistance for community-based, abstinence-only sex education programs, $4 million more than what President Bush had requested.

Yes, the Democrats supported it, too. It's nice money to hand out to religious organizations who then can use that money to help the Republicans in the next elections.

Oh, I almost forgot. These programs prohibit any mention of condoms and such.
