Here’s the story from USAToday (I can’t keep up with the latest Right Wing denials: Is that a mouthpiece for the “liberal media?”)
“The government is targeting unmarried adults up to age 29 as part of its abstinence-only programs, which include millions of dollars in federal money that will be available to the states under revised federal grant guidelines for 2007.
The government says the change is a clarification. But critics say it’s a clear signal of a more directed policy targeting the sexual behavior of adults.
“They’ve stepped over the line of common sense,” said James Wagoner, president of Advocates for Youth, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit that supports sex education. “To be preaching abstinence when 90% of people are having sex is in essence to lose touch with reality. It’s an ideological campaign. It has nothing to do with public health.”
Again, traditional conservatives: Your votes are enabling the Jesus-Freaks. Wake up.

Guess once you hit 30, Baby Jesus don’t give a shit about you anymore.
Either that or they’d have to start asking uncomfortable questions of a certain thrice-divorced drug addict with a tendency to pack Viagra on his vacation to an island known for its lax view on prostitution.
Oh? This is how they spend my tax money? Well hell, let me empty my accounts and go ahead and give it all to them.
What scares me is that after having voted I can see why the Republicans will most likely remain in control.
