Mark Steyn views the Fluke fiasco from Down Under:
The brave middle-aged schoolgirl had the courage to stand up in public and demand that someone else pay for her sex life….
…. No taxation without rubberization, as the Minutemen said. The shot heard round the world, and all that….
No, the most basic issue here is not religious morality, individual liberty, or fiscal responsibility. It’s that a society in which middle-aged children of privilege testify before the most powerful figures in the land to demand state-enforced funding for their sex lives at a time when their government owes more money than anyone has ever owed in the history of the planet is quite simply nuts.
Nuts it is.
