L'Shanah Tova! - Happy Jewish New Year 5772

Apples and Honey symbolize a sweet year

...In the seventh month, on the first of the month, there shall be a sabbath for you, a remembrance with shofar blasts, a holy convocation. - Leviticus 16:24

Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown today.
It's the birthday of the world.
It begins the High Holy Days of the Jewish calendar.

For all my friends and readers - no matter what your faith or belief - My wish to you and yours:
"L'shanah tovah tikateiv v'taichateim"
"May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year."

From Chabad:
The central mitzvah of Rosh Hashanah is the sounding of the shofar. The shofar is a ram's horn, the oldest and most primitive of wind instruments, yet its call touches the innermost chords of the soul. Even if one cannot participate in the whole service, one should at least attempt to hear the sounding of the Shofar.

The sound of the shofar is to awaken people to repent and return to G-d. It is a call to evaluate our actions and improve our ways. The sound represents a simple, unaltered outcry of a person who wishes to come close to G-d but cannot find the words. G-d responds to that by granting us a good and sweet year.

On Rosh Hashanah we customarily eat foods that symbolize sweetness and abundance. We dip Challah into honey, and on the first night, we dip a piece of apple in honey and after the blessing on the apple we add, "May it be your will to renew for us a good and sweet new year."

On the second evening, right after Kiddush, we eat a new seasonal fruit we have not eaten this year (like pomegranates) and say the "Shehecheyanu" [prayer] praising G-d for bringing us to this day.
On the first day of Rosh Hashanah in the afternoon it is customary to go to a lake or river and say the Tashlich prayer and toss some bread into the water. This reminds us to leave our sins "into the depths of the sea" (Micha7:19) and start a new lease on life.

The New Year is a time to give to charity and do good deeds - to repair broken relationships - to apologize and make make amends with those we have wronged - and to take stock of what we are doing with our lives. It's a time of spiritual examination.
"The central observance of Rosh Hashanah is the sounding of the shofar, the ram's horn, which represents the trumpet blast of a people's coronation of their king. The cry of the shofar is also a call to repentance; for Rosh Hashanah is also the anniversary of man's first sin and his repentance thereof, and serves as the first of the "Ten Days of Repentance" which culminate in Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Another significance of the shofar is to recall the Binding of Isaac which also occurred on Rosh Hashanah, in which a ram took Isaac's place as an offering to G-d; we evoke Abraham's readiness to sacrifice his son and plead that the merit of his deed should stand by us as we pray for a year of life, health and prosperity. Altogether, the shofar is sounded 100 times in the course of the Rosh Hashanah service."
I wish for you and yours that this coming new year be a sweet one filled with Health, Happiness and Prosperity.

Herman Cain Wins Florida Straw Poll - But There's More You Should Know

Herman Cain recently squashed Rick Perry in the Florida Republican Straw Poll, winning 37% of the votes cast.

Herman Cain wants you to buy into him being an "outsider"...
It's hard to position yourself as an outsider and also have endorsed both TARP and Mitt Romney.
Have a listen to Tom Woods:

Cain may offer some tough talk... but in my opinion he's the banker's candidate.
Cain's a former deputy chairman (1992–94) and chairman (1995–96) of the board of directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

Do you think he honestly would work to Audit the Fed or End the Fed?
Not a chance.

IRS Goes Hunting For Dollars Planetwide

Americans and dual citizens living abroad are under attack by the IRS. The US government is so strapped for cash that they are hunting down people who have never even lived or worked in the U.S. and fining them hundreds of thousands of dollars.

This from Whiskey & Gunpowder (by Wendy McElroy)
The Attack on Accidental Americans

When Julie Veilleux discovered she was American, she went to the nearest U.S. embassy to renounce her citizenship. Having lived in Canada since she was a young child, the 48-year-old had no idea she carried the burden of dual citizenship. But the renunciation will not clear away the past 10 years of penalties with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Born to American parents living in Canada, Kerry Knoll's two teenaged daughters had no clue they became dual citizens at birth. (An American parent confers such status on Canadian-born children.) Now the IRS wants to grab at money they earned in Canada from summer jobs; the girls had hoped to use their RESPs (registered education savings plans) for college.The IRS is making a worldwide push to squeeze money from Americans living abroad and from anyone who holds dual citizenship, whether they know it or not. It doesn't matter if the "duals" want U.S. status, have never set foot on U.S. soil or never conducted business with an American. It doesn't matter if those targeted owe a single cent to the IRS. Unlike almost every other nation in the world, the United States requires citizens living abroad to file tax forms on the money they do not owe as well as to report foreign bank accounts or holdings such as stocks or RSSPs. The possible penalty for not reporting is $10,000 per "disclosed asset" per year.

Thus, Americans and dual citizens living in Canada (or elsewhere) who do not disclose their local checking account -- now labeled by the IRS as "an illegal offshore account" -- are liable for fines that stretch back 10 years and might amount to $100,000. A family, like the Knolls, in which there are two American parents and two dual-citizen children, might be collectively liable for $400,000.
You can read the rest of the article - but it is just incredible what is going on.

What is interesting is that the IRS already receives about 400,000 tax returns from approximately 7 million Americans who live live abroad (a compliance rate of around 6%). Customs and Immigration is now sharing information with the IRS and expats and dual citizens who are not complying will be subject to massive fines and arrest if they ever come to the U.S. (Good reason for them not to ever set foot on American soil)

Meanwhile, our with all the information Customs and Immigration has, our government does nothing - zero- zilch - to enforce our laws against those who come here illegally. In fact, our government is willing to pay for their schooling, and healthcare! Now they need money from expats and dual citizens to do that! Oh, the irony!

What is apparent is that the U.S. is in dire economic straits and that is why expats and dual citizens are being hunted down like dogs.
As of 8:30 a.m. EST, Sept. 20, the US National debt was $14,744,278,404,668. That is over $47,000 per American citizen, over $131,000 per taxpayer. America is bankrupt and desperate to grab at any loose dollar within its reach. Having reaped the easy pickings within its own borders, America is extending its reach. So far, the IRS push into foreign territory has been a rousing success by their own standards. In 2009, the IRS offered "amnesty" -- that is, lessened but still hefty penalties -- to whoever stepped forward to disclose foreign bank accounts.
Global international tax enforcement of so-called "offshore tax evasion" (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, or FATCA) is now a priority, such that they will even raid college money earned by children born and raised in other countries!

"Starting in 2013 (2014 if an exemption is granted)every bank in the world will be required to report to the IRS all accounts held by current and former U.S. citizens. If account holders refuse to provide verification of their non-U.S. citizenship, the banks will be required to impose a 30% tax of all payments or transfers to the account on behalf of the IRS. Banks that do not comply will "face withholding on U.S.-source interest and dividends, gross proceeds from the disposition of U.S. securities and pass-through payments."
Interesting to note that some countries like Australia and Japan have already declared their refusal to comply.

Banks around the globe will now be extensions of the IRS and of course there are also significant privacy concerns for their customers. As a result, some foreign banks may opt not to do business with the American government or American interests.

Personally, I just see this as another piece to the One World Government/Global Banking scenario. The tentacles of the IRS are slithering into foreign banks and making mandates for their compliance in data collection and tax enforcement.

Bernanke Does The Twist - Schiff Comments

Zimbabwe Ben is at it again.
"The Fed took another unconventional step to boost the economy, saying it would increase its share of longer-term Treasurys by $400 billion and reinvest in mortgage-related debt."- WSJ

Here is Peter Schiff's take on the Fed Chairman's move.

Peter Schiff : The FED does not care on how much damage it does on the long run. The FED is acting very politically and it is trying whatever it can to try to boost the economy ahead of the 2012 elections, so its latest brain storm is that it concluded that the problem with the US economy is that interest rates. Long term interest rates are just not low enough despite the fact that they have never been this low in our life time. The yield on the ten year is 1.875% - that's it. The 30 year is down to 3.039%. We never had interest rates so low. The economy is a mess. Interest rates are as low as they have ever been and the FED's conclusion is "If we could just get them a little lower that's going to do the trick and the economy is going to turn around".

"By "stimulus," we mean doing more harm to savers. The supposed purpose is to lower mortgage rates and help the housing market. But this is counter-productive. All the government's intervention in the housing market just delays the declines (and bank failures) necessary for economic recovery." - David E. Shellenberger

Meanwhile, banks like Bank of America are insolvent.
This will not end well.
(I can see Weimar Germany from my house.)

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
- Thomas Jefferson

Linda McMahon Begins Her Harassment Of CT Voters

I got this mailer in the mail today - along with email in my inbox.
I didn't like "Linda" then, and I still don't like her now.
She still comes across as scripted and phony just like professional wrestling.

For all of her money ($50 million) she couldn't get us to love her in 2010.
She couldn't get us to vote for her.
It must have killed her a little bit inside.
She wants this soooo bad.
It's kind of disturbing actually.
It's like some sort of weird addiction.
I think Susan Bysiewicz has it too.

Like it or not - the 2012 election cycle is officially here.
I am not looking forward to the daily mailings, robocalls, and emails from "Linda".
Quite frankly, it borders on harassment.

Thank heavens I don't have TV so I don't have to watch the endless commercials which tell of her rags to riches story and pleads with us to believe that she is one of "the little people".

"Linda's" disdain for the Tea Party was palpable the last time I saw her speak to that group.
And I can't shake the feeling that if she is so willing to toss away her millions in such a nonchalant manner to buy a Senate seat, how will she spend our hard earned tax dollars in Washington?

Oh, I have met her.
She's a nice enough woman.
She says nice things and tries to "connect".
But you know she isn't in your league.
She also has an air of ruthlessness which is disconcerting... a "My way or the highway" kind of attitude, with a touch of arrogance underneath.

Now that she's had some time to evaluate why people didn't vote for her, it is certain that she will attempt to morph into who she thinks we want. She's a decent actress afterall.

However, I have found a much better candidate for US Senate.
One who has military experience, and one who truly is one of "the people".
I have met him too.
He is genuine.
He is a patriot.

That's all I need.
I care not that he lacks "Linda's" millions.
He should be our next Senator.

Brian K. Hill for Senate 2012!

(Want to bet "Linda" steals Brian K. Hill's talking points?)

More About Agenda 21

OK, I admit, Victoria Jackson is goofy, but her interview with Karen Schoen has some interesting information about this whole "sustainable" "livable" and "green" agenda creeping into your town, city and county ..... and it ain't about bringing your own bags to the grocery store or buying those moronic mercury laden curly bulbs.

One word of caution - the Agenda21 website that Karen Schoen spoke about might have been hacked... my filters detected a virus there ... so be careful.

Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Talk Like a Pirate Day only comes once a year (on September 19th) ... unleash your inner buccaneer!
On talk like a pirate day, everyone talks as if they were a pirate. For instance, instead of saying something like this:

The commitee has decided to reallocate your time to the filing group. We look forward to the exciting new synergies between these departments.

You would say this:

Aye matey, those scalawags in their fine breeches want ye’ to move o’er with the scurvy dogs yonder. If ye’ don’t come back with some fine booty, we be keelhaulin’ you next morn!

Some tips on how to talk like a pirate can be found on these pages

Of course the State of CT celebrates "Take Money from Citizens Like A Pirate Day", every day. Arrrggghhh.

Peter Schiff Testifies In Washington Before Jobs Committee

See Part 2 also!

By the way - this guy Cummings - he is completely clueless. He and his Progressive policies are part of the problem.

Peter Schiff did a brilliant job of attempting to educate this committee and in laying out the real problems causes and solutions to our financial mess.
I hope someone is listening.

As for Dr. Boushey... She is precisely what is wrong, and has been wrong, with this country. "Doctors" like her get "educated" in government-run schools, graduate with worthless and utterly useless Keynesian-economics degrees, get employed by taxpayer-funded government jobs, and then theorize and push around paper the rest of their lives. They think they actually do society a service, but they produce NOTHING! They haven't a clue about how the real world works.

Here's a novel idea: How about educating children so that they can create businesses that PRODUCE things?????
We need manufacturing... not theorists.
We need producers ... not looters.
We need entrepreneurs ... not people dependent on government handouts.
Government needs to get OUT of the WAY of business!

Please... someone in Washington .... listen to people like Peter Schiff, Rand Paul and Ron Paul.

Rick Perry - Globalist

That was no debate last night - that was the Perry Romney puppet show. (AKA Globalist's Gone Wild!) - What would they have said if they didn't have Ron Paul's talking points about the Fed - and Sound Money - and smaller government?

Ron Paul has been talking about these things for 30 years!

In any case, Rick Perry is a globalist - and tied to the UN's Agenda 21.
Public private partnerships (or P3s) are part and parcel of the United Nations’ Agenda 21. Two of the purposes of Agenda 21 are to abolish private property and restrict mobility and P3s act as the vehicle to do it. Perry made P3s a centerpiece of his transportation policy since he stepped in as governor.

It started with the Trans Texas Corridor, known at the federal level as high priority corridors, corridors of the future, or the NAFTA superhighways. Just in Texas, it was to be a 4,000 mile multi-modal network of toll roads, rail lines, power transmission lines, pipelines, telecommunications lines and more. It was going to be financed, operated, and controlled by a foreign company granted massive swaths of land 1,200 feet (4 football fields) wide taken forcibly through eminent domain.

Called the biggest land grab in Texas history, it was going to gobble up 580,000 acres of private Texas land (the first corridor alone was to displace 1 million Texans) and hand it over to well-connected global players using P3s, who would gain exclusive rights to determine the route and what hotels, restaurants, and gas stations were along the corridor in a government-sanctioned monopoly for a half century. It was the worst case of eminent domain for private gain ever conceived.

The corporate news "presstitutes" sure are trying their best to shove Romney and Perry down our throats by giving them so much airtime. They are of course the pick of the global elites.

So in the end we may very well have a "choice" (not really) between Obama and yet another globalist stooge.... unless of course people wake up and choose someone like Ron Paul (notice they didn't ask him a question about the Federal Reserve)

Democrat... doesn't really matter... globalists are globalists and what we are being fed are people who will inevitably continue to erode our sovereignty and our rights and make it so that we have no choice but to join a New World Order.

What a shame for this great nation.

Another Stupid Anti-Gun Program

Yeah - this time it's a "buy back program"...
The guns being bought back from the streets weren’t 9 mm handguns or Glocks. Instead, they were Nerf guns or toy pistols.

And they weren’t being bought with cash. This time, the currency was pizza slices, notebooks and dress shirts.

The FATHERS group and Bona Pizza teamed up Monday for a buyback aimed at younger teens and preteens at the pizzeria at Bailey and Kensington avenues.

The idea was simple: Don’t let kids get used to firing weapons, even if they’re toys.

“It makes them too comfortable, holding that gun,” said Leonard Lane, president of Fathers Armed Together to Help, Educate, Restore and Save. “Then there’s no fear holding the real gun when they get older. We want to put that fear back into our children, teaching them what guns can do, how they affect their community.”

“A toy gun today, a real gun tomorrow,” said Charles Cina, owner of Bona Pizza. “That’s what we want to stop.”

So kids such as Tarence Callaham, 14, a Buffalo ninth-grader, brought in his green and orange Nerf gun. In return, Tarence got a piece of pepperoni pizza, a snazzy dress shirt and the chance to shoot some hoops in the pizzeria parking lot.

“I learned that you shouldn’t have guns and stuff,” Tarence said. “It gives kids an education not to play with bad things.”

Talk about irrational programs and brainwashing... this program just takes the cake... err... pizza.
They forgot to mention that guns are not bad things if only the police and government officials and criminals have them... and perhaps they should also teach these kids how to be good and willing defenseless victims.

You have to read the comments on the article ... at least there are still some Americans with brains who believe this is the most idiotic program going.

American Thinker also had some good comments about this anti-gun brainwashing program.

So.... when kids do not have super soakers or fake guns to play with and then run around pointing their fingers at one another to mimic a gun will these anti-gun morons seek to amputate the children's digits too in order to enforce "no gun play"?

Perhaps they'd like all the boys to just settle down with some barbie dolls...or sit and watch mindless drivel on TV... (yeah, then they'd complain about obese idiot American children).

The anti-gun morons figure that it is much better to teach our children not to be able to defend themselves or ever handle a firearm safely - that way they can be better managed by their overlords.

Obama Jobs Speech

Full text of Obama's speech here.

Since taking office, President Barack Obama has signed into law twenty-one new or higher taxes. Here is a comprehensive List of Obama's Job Killing Tax Hikes.

Most CEO's want the Obama administration to back off and get out of the way.
More government spending is not going to help.

What Obama's plan offers is this:
1. Tax the rich.
2. Union projects in Democrat districts (AKA Pork).
3. Money for more Unionized public employees.
4. More Government Spending.
5. Meaningless Tax cuts for workers and businesses.

Might as well call it Union Stimulus... and more class warfare.

This DOA in the House... and Obama will gladly blame the Republicans...that's the plan. It's all BS. So much for Hope and Change.

Even the Associated Press sees the holes in this jobs package.

Here is one reasoned response from Senator Rand Paul.

"I have a brilliant idea -- How about we bring our troops home and let them build our roads and schools instead of someone else's? That way we'd save the money we are spending over there and could spend it on something we need. Net change in cost to taxpayer ZERO and needed infrastructure handled. Just a thought..." - Sandra Crosnoe

EPA Declares Hay A Pollutant

On the heels of "Nuisance Abatement" actions which seek to force families from their homes so counties can steal land, it looks like we have another instance where a government entity is going after the little guy.

This time it's the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which is harassing smaller farms and ranches by declaring hay a "pollutant".

In this article,
Kansas cattle feeder Mike Callicrate ... explained that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently initiated a formal enforcement action against his Kansas feedlot for, among other things, failure to store his hay in a pollution containment zone. “Now that EPA has declared hay a pollutant, every farmer and rancher that stores hay, or that leaves a broken hay bale in the field is potentially violating EPA rules and subject to an EPA enforcement action,” ...

Callicrate is permitted to handle 12,000 cattle at a time in his feedlot, which is considered a small to mid-sized feedlot in an industry now dominated by mega-feedlots...

The largest of feedlots are getting larger and Callicrate’s feedlot is among the group of small to mid-sized feedlots that are being pressured to exit the industry so beef packers and corporate feedlot owners can increase their respective capacities. Data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) show that 45 feedlots with one-time capacities of between 1,000 or more cattle but less than 16,000 cattle have exited the industry from 2008 to 2010.

R-CALF USA [believes] beef packers are deliberately forcing small to mid-sized feedlots out of business through unfair and abusive cattle-buying practices that effectively restrict market access for all but the largest of feedlots. ...

Callicrate’s feedlot is the perfect example. In late 1998, the nation’s largest beef packers blackballed Callicrate because he called attention to the unfair buying practices of the corporate meatpackers. Callicrate was forced to cease his feedlot operations until 2000 when he opened Ranch Foods Direct, a meat processing and distribution company in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and began marketing his own beef more directly to consumers.

I believe the EPA’s enforcement action is a premeditated effort by EPA to partner with the beef packers to finish the job the beef packer’s couldn’t do alone,” said Callicrate adding, “along with my feedlot, the EPA has filed enforcement actions against five other smaller feedlots, including one with only 400 cattle.

Callicrate said the EPA does not appear to be going after the corporate feedlots. “EPA is turning a blind eye toward the mega-feedlots that are a real risk for pollution and, instead, is antagonizing small to mid-sized family operations in an effort to help their packer-partners capture the entire live cattle supply chain away from family farm and ranch operations.

We thought the Obama Administration was going to bring about a change to the ongoing corporate control and corporate dominance that has been decimating the U.S. cattle industry. I guess we’re seeing that change right now. Rather than reduce corporate control and dominance the EPA is overtly partnering with the corporate beef packers to accelerate the exodus of sustainable, independent family operations.
Government and big corporations are working together to obliterate family farms and ranches.
This is just one example.

Mail Jimmy Hoffa Some Tea Bags! And File An FBI Complaint

Ok - Jimmy P. Hoffa - You asked for it!
You threw the gauntlet down and now you will be hearing from those nasty Hobbitses/Conservatives!

Declare War on Conservatives will you???
Call them Son's O'Bitches will you???

People supporting freedom and liberty and against unsustainable demands by elitist thug union bosses such as Hoffa will be sending him a little gift... or shall I say, many little gifts.

The fight has begun...
From now till January, Conservatives from all over the country will be sending Hoffa some TEA BAGS! and they will be TETLEY, SALADA, or RED ROSE... which are NON-UNION made!!!

The envelopes will have the words "UNION DUES" written in bold RED letters on them.

and they will be sent to:

General President James P. Hoffa
International Brotherhood of Teamsters
25 Louisiana Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20001-2130

The fight has just begun.

By the way - where is all this "civility" that the Left was preaching?
Where is the outrage from those same Leftists over Hoffa's call to war?
and where is the White House's condemnation of such incivility?
Where is Obama's call to "tone down the rhetoric"?
What a bunch of hypocrites!

Oh... and by the way - the FBI has been served a complaint by Mr. Warren Gacsi... perhaps we should all file the same complaint!! (To file a complaint to the FBI you can mail it in, or post to their website at You can send your copy of this criminal complaint to the FBI and demand that your Congress compels the Department of Justice to file formal charges upon Hoffa, Obama, and Biden.

by Warren Gacsi on Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at 7:04am



Jimmy Hoffa, in his address on September 4, 2011, Jimmy Hoffa instructed his union members to"take these son-of-a-bitches out" and declared war on the TEA Party.

Refer to his statements as said in this video: ( in Mr. Hoffa's own words), which I therefore submit as evidence to this complaint.

Such statements constitutes numerous acts of domestic terrorism under section 802 of the Patriot Act.

Given that Mr. Hoffa holds a position of power and influence in the Teamsters Union, and that the Teamsters have previously been active in inflicting acts of violence, I am therefore concluding that Mr. Hoffa has instructed his union members to inflict further violent acts.

I view Mr. Hoffa's statement to be one of CULPABLE harm.

Section 802 of the Patriot Act: DOMESTIC TERRORISM

5) the term `domestic terrorism' means activities that--

`(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;

`(B) appear to be intended--

`(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;

`(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or

`(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and

`(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.'

I also interpret Mr. Hoffa's statements to be intended to instruct his union members to inflict physical harm and mayhem upon those who oppose the Teamster's agenda, and specifically to be inflicted upon those of the TEA Party or those who support the TEA Party.

Therefore, I am filing this criminal complaint upon Jimmy Hoffa. Furthermore, I also file this criminal complaint upon Joe Biden and also Barak Obama who have endorsed the statements of Jimmy Hoffa and request the FBI to file criminal charges upon those three individuals for violations of Section 802 of the Patriot Act.

I will be seeking a Federal Protection Order in Riverside, California District Federal Court, naming Jimmy Hoffa, Joe Biden, and Barak Obama as well as the entire Teamsters Union, and also seek an order from the court to (1) order the teamsters to not infiltrate or seek to disrupt TEA Party events, and to order that the above three named persons, and any member of the Teamsters to refrain from any activities within one thousand feet of my primary residence and place of business.

Warren Gacsi

Now, there's a Patriot!

Nuisance Abatement Is Just Another Term For Land Theft

"Nuisance abatement" is being used to steal private property and/or force people to abandon their property. People living "off-grid" are being targeted.
Apparently living off the grid, off the land and without government assistance is now a crime that can land you in jail and cause you to lose your home.

Government officials across the country are forming so called “nuisance abatement teams” to intimidate people into giving up their land or conforming to the governments demands and hooking back into the grid. Counties across the country are actually jailing people for living the way they want to live.. on their own land!

This comes from out of the "People's Republic" of California:

Looks like this county in California sees some value in these lands and wants these people to leave. There seems to be some other plans being made for property that the county does not own.

It appears that we all better look out for how zoning laws and county regulations could make us homeless.... and to that end we really ought to know more about property rights and how to fight back if something similar happens to us or a neighbor.

Nuisance abatement?
It's just another term for land theft... and it WILL be also used by those promoting Agenda 21.

Remember Suzette Kelo?

What a watse after she and many others were summarily thrown out of their homes!

US Government Now Calls Itself "Your Family"

Euphemism alert!!!!!
Language spin in progress!!!!

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) wants you to consider the federal government your “Federal Family.”

In their news release on August 30, entitled "Federal Family Continues To Support Response And Recovery Efforts In Communities Impacted By Irene " - they say this:
Under the direction of President Obama and Secretary Janet Napolitano, the entire federal family is continuing to lean forward to support our state, tribal, territorial and local partners as they respond to and begin to recover from Hurricane Irene.
It looks like the government is loathe to call itself our "Government" now - and FEMA instead makes references to federal, state and local "partners" as well as "offices" and "personnel".

Because people are so angry with the federal government it looks as if the government is trying to change the language to make themselves more ... well ... like family.
(That's not taking into account people who can't stand their own family ... but I digress)

So let's take a look at the language shift here. By using the term "family" they may be looking to tap into our psyche about how we look at family... you know motherhood, apple pie, security and warm puppies.

It's propaganda at it's best. (or worst)

There were some interesting comments made to the article posted in the Palm Beach Post regarding this use of the term "Federal Family".

Here's a sampling:
- The family is a good analogy because the mob used it and it fit's for government. They use mob like tactics all the time.

- Federal family, this is a great clean name to call all those relatives that come out of the woodwork and drain every cent out of your pocket and keep coming back for more. Ya know every family has them.

- It's that tribal mentality now infecting the federal government. They ain't our family. They - the Feds- are family. They have their OWN health insurance, they are exempt from ObamaCare. They pay less per month for their healthcare than we pay and we pay most of their insurance.

- Another little bit of socialism or maybe even communism!! It isn't government-- it's a family --- remember that comrades.

- The federal Family has a great deal of resemblance to Al Capone, Jessie James and John Dillinger and Bernie Madoff all rolled into one.

- In our new Federal Family, we need to keep our children away from Uncle Sam, if you know what I mean.

Then there is the "Big Brother" and "Nanny State" connotation of family.
Neither is desirable.
Both have become reality.

As for me - I don't need the government to be my "Family".
I already have a very nice family.

That being said - this "Federal Family" needs to stop meddling in our affairs, stop stealing our money and generally stop trying to control our lives.

So tell me .. what do you do when family members open up your mail - listen in to your phone conversations, take money from your wallet, and tell you what you can and cannot do?
What do you do when family members pick a fight with the neighbors, or destroys their property and then tries to get you all embroiled in the ensuing melee?
And what about those family members that think that they are better than you? How do you deal with them?

I think you get my drift.

This "Federal Family" - it's just a load of Socialistic Euphemistic BS.

In any case -
The federal government is not my "Family"
They are the Servants!

California Babysitting Bill Spells Doom To Parents Date Night

Another idiot bill is circulating the chambers of the California legislature.

Assembly Bill 889
(authored by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco) requires that for parents who hire babysitters over the age of 18 they will be expected to provide workers' compensation benefits, rest and meal breaks! The paid vacation time requirement was removed from the bill (how magnanimous!)

No joke!

Date night may soon become a thing of the past with this legislation.

So that college student, or senior citizen, looking for a few extra bucks for watching your child for a few hours on a Friday night - forget it.

The Statist Democrat majority is seeking these so-called "protections" for all “domestic employees,” including nannies, housekeepers and caregivers - over the age of 18 (unless they are a family member).
The bill has already passed the Assembly and is quickly moving through the Senate with blanket support from the Democrat members that control both houses of the Legislature – and without the support of a single Republican member. Assuming the bill will easily clear its last couple of legislative hurdles, AB 889 will soon be on its way to the Governor's desk.

Under AB 889, household “employers” (aka “parents”) who hire a babysitter on a Friday night will be legally obligated to pay at least minimum wage to any sitter over the age of 18 (unless it is a family member), provide a substitute caregiver every two hours to cover rest and meal breaks, in addition to workers' compensation coverage, overtime pay, and a meticulously calculated timecard/paycheck.

Failure to abide by any of these provisions may result in a legal cause of action against the employer including cumulative penalties, attorneys' fees, legal costs and expenses associated with hiring expert witnesses, an unprecedented measure of legal recourse provided no other class of workers – from agricultural laborers to garment manufacturers.

Of course these Statist Democrats do not understand that this will further hurt employment for people. The unreasonable costs placed in this legislation will of course discourage people from hiring housekeepers, nannies and babysitters and most likely increase the use of institutionalized care.

Maybe that's what they really want - more old people and children in institutionalized care.

Sigh - it's all so absurd.
