New Governmental Prerogatives

For those of you who thought that the Constitution restricted the activities of the Feds, or that (certainly) the Feds have some humility, or at least modesty in their goals...

Think again.

In today's news we find:

The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee’s health care legislation will give the Health and Human Services secretary the authority to develop “standards of measuring gender” -- as opposed to using the traditional "male" and "female" categories -- in a database of all who apply or participate in government-run or government-supported health care plans."

The Greeks had NO idea of the real meaning of "hubris." None at all.
