It's not just you

Michelle Malkin has a great (and scary) column this week:

To GIVE and to SERVE: The $6 billion National Service boondoggle

by Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateCopyright 2009

Maybe it’s just me, but I find federal legislation titled “The GIVE Act” and “The SERVE Act” downright creepy. Even more troubling: The $6 billion price tag on these bipartisan bills to expand government-funded national service efforts. Volunteerism is a wonderful thing, which is why millions of Americans do it every day without a cent of taxpayer money. But the volunteerism packages on the Hill are less about promoting effective charity than about creating make-work, permanent bureaucracies, and left-wing slush funds.

Yeah, my government finds new ways to creep me out just about every day now. Follow the link to her site and read the whole column.
