When someone makes nonsensical public-statements, that upset or annoy large numbers of people, within one news-cycle, two at the most, they back-pedal by claiming that we, the unwashed, misunderstood them. Such wasn't the case with that hard-left cable host who informed us recently that your kids really aren't yours, but rather belong to the community, meaning government. Not only did our collectivist-butterfly refuse to retract, she reinforced her belief, stating that (quote) "our children are not a family's private property." Well of course they are, as well as their responsibility, certainly until their kids are old enough to look after themselves and make good decisions. Once of age and independent, most will continue to rely on their family for guidance, support, and love, not the federal government!
