UN Agenda 21 coming?

A little known bill is came out of the Senate Banking committee of which Sen. Chris Dodd, Sen. Chuckie Schumer are members, the Bill titled The Livable Communities Act, S.1619 is a total power grab and an effort to control people based on supposed environmental responsibility and concentration of people into smaller areas. Please Read the bill (it is not the 2500 page monster health bill) and contact your representatives ASAP. They have this on a FAST TRACK.

Of note, of which I do not like saying is that George H Bush signed onto the UN Resolution version, Agenda 21. Very upsetting.


One of the current debates taking place is the issue of taxes. Extending the Bush tax cuts would be beneficial to everyone, poor, wealthy and in between. Likewise, if they are not extended they will effect everyone, wealthy and poor alike. The cycle of the tax dollar begins when goods or services are produced by a business. A business is in business to provide services or goods for a profit.... CAPITALISM. A business needs workers to produce goods or services for which they are paid, Income. The company and employees are TAXED by govts. These workers spend their income for goods and services creating need for more workers etc... thus more taxes expanding the tax base. Some people state that only middle and lower class should retain the Bush tax cuts and businesses shouldnt get the tax cuts because "they can afford it". Well excuse me, who makes those jobs so there are even middle and lower classes? Why would it be right for anyone to determine how much money a business can retain for themselves after taxes?? The business owners risk a lot and sometimes everything! What do employees risk?? Have they mortgaged their houses to pay the wages and benefits of employees? I dont think so. So lets apply their thinking to themselves.... If they go to work for a business, everyone should make the same regardless of how much harder they work than someone else.

A flat tax would be a better option or a national sales tax IN PLACE of what we have today, not in addition to. This would be "FAIR" but then everyone would pay and the brainwashed, dumbed down idiots would not like that. What they are attempting to do is to effectively eliminate the middle class thus giving power and money to all govts.

Enuf said, this is definitely rambling. My apologies,It has been too long since Ive written on my blog.

Own Your Future

Interesting mail today. I received a mailing from the Office of The Governor, State of Iowa. This mailing is a new initiative called "Own Your Future". This is an initiative by the Federal Govt and State of Iowa. The purpose of this initiative is to encourage people between the ages of 45 & 65 to begin planning for their long-term care. They offer a free kit that can be ordered, called a Long Term Care Planning Kit, which was created by the US Dept of Health & Human Services.

The website provided a link www.longtermcare.gov/campaign/ia

I checked this out and basically it seems be all good but of course there is the end of life discussions. Surprise. Is this the new watered down version of the VA Booklet that the DHS has been giving to our Veterans? I am not a veteran so it seems this is going public.

It is disgusting the way this admin is and has been treating our veterans. The veterans know more about hard work and sacrifice than any of those thugs and thieves in DC.

Just thought I would share my interesting mail today. If you are able to find out any more info about this, like, is this every state doing this or just Iowa, let me know.

Voting Rights to ex-felons?

Time for some ramblings.... Just browsing some legislation that has been introduced and came across H.R. 59- Ex-Offenders Voting Rights Act of 2009, introduced by none other than the infamous Sheila Jackson Lee with co-sponsors William Clay, Danny Davis, and Alcee Hastings.

Basically requires a correctional officer inform a convicted felon within 30 days after release from jail. I guess the democrats are looking for new voters. I thought if a person was a convicted felon they lost all rights. But as it is, they get their gyms, healthcare, cable, phone, computer and education all at the taxpayers expense most likely after we pay for their attorneys and court costs to put them behind bars. Additionally, this bill grants the Federal Gov't authority over the states. It specifically prohibits "a state from enacting any state law that affords the right to vote in any election for federal office on terms less restrictive than those terms established by this Act". There goes yet another states' rights issue. Currently, the bill is in House Committee on the Judiciary. Members of this committee include Rep. John Conyers, Rep Lamar Smith, Rep Tammy Baldwin, Rep Howard Berman.

There are 435 house seats up for re-election in 2010. We need to clean house so to speak. There are at least 34 Senate seats. Additionally, Joe Biden's senate seat up for grab since the appointed Senator to fill in for him is not running.

Feel free to leave your thoughts and comments.

Fw: More stuff happening we don't know about

Email news sent to Me:

Subject: More stuff happening we don't know about

House Votes to Give FDA Greater Powers
Yet another bill that would give the Food and Drug Administration new powers over our food supply has been introduced and passed in the House of Representatives. This new bill, known as the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009 (H.R. 2749), was passed on July 30 by a vote of 283-142.

H.R. 2749 is just one of several bills in Congress that would expand the powers of the FDA. What are the differences between one bill and another? Anyone's guess is as good as another! This bill, like many others, was literally rushed through the voting process leaving House members little-to-no time to read, debate, or offer any significant amendments on the legislation.

A recent blog post on JBS.org stated, "One version [of H.R. 2749] was introduced at 12:15 a.m., one at 9:36 a.m., and 10:50 a.m. on Wednesday morning. By Thursday the bill was again on the table, this time with the option that representatives could offer amendments. One was offered. No action was taken on it, which leaves the question, again, how many representatives voting on this stealth bill actually read it."

Much like the previously reported H.R. 875, or other legislation that would further federalize our food supply, H.R. 2749 would threaten the livelihood of small farms and other food producers by placing costly and burdensome restrictions on the companies and potentially forcing them out of business.

Opponents of the bill argue that small farmers and local vendors would be held to the same standards of multinational companies. This would place heavy restrictions on anyone hoping to sell their products to consumers who frequent farmer's markets, fruit stands or other venues of that nature.

Use The John Birch Society's legislation alert system to write your Senators and urge them to oppose H.R. 2749 and any other legislation that would centralize our food system.
