That has been the plan all along. To get everyone dependent on the government. Make it harder for the "little" guys to operate so their corporate backers can have even more money. If everyone is dependent on the government, then it makes it harder for the people to fight back. They'll threaten to cut people off. People will get scared. This is how liberty is dying friends.

Not Faux news:

MSNBC host Ed Schultz uses the following lead in to his program: where truth and common sense rule!!!

On last Friday’s program, he said,“The gun laws and the gun violence in Chicago is a helluva lot different than it is in New York City. There's two different worlds when it comes to gun violence, it's not even close. New York City is not, you know, an all-safe zone or what not, I'm not trying to make that case. But a city that has got strict, the strictest gun laws in America put forth by Mayor Bloomberg, versus the gun laws that apparently don't even exist in Chicago, you've got two totally different numbers when it comes to lives lost.”

Gun laws don’t even exist in Chicago? I’ll grant you that Chicago does resemble the wild, wild, west, but they also have the most restrictive gun laws in the country.

And if you get your news from this organization, you’d have it all wrong, wouldn’t you?‘Splains alot.

Then you must do direct deposit, instead of supporting your union buddies at the Post Office.

Of course, then the check might not be on time, and it could get lost.

I am trying to follow your point but what does a bank rule such as the one I described that will not allow me to cash a customer's government or payroll check if the amount is over a grand, have to do with "everyone" being "dependant on the government" ????
My bank is essentially saying I can NOT cash a customer's check in order to get paid what is owed ME, since they will not honor such checks for deposit in my account. I have done business with this bank for over 30 years, and have cashed hundreds if not thousands of large two party checks in the years I have done business with them...... until now.

If you cannot get your money, you have to shut down. That benefits the larger corporations. After all, they run the country anyway. If you have to shut down, there is a chance that you will face a financial crisis. If that happens you may have to rely on the government for assistance. Which is where they want you to be. Completely dependent on the government. Dependent, obedient, subservient. The United States of Dependency.

What was the national unemployment rate in January 2001? What was it in December 2008? What was the percentage difference? For extra credit, figure out the same percentage difference for the beginning of Obama's administration until now and let us know.

I cannot stand Rush Limbaugh. Grover Norquist is a joke. Fox News...is a complete waste. My thoughts and opinions are my own. I don't need an idiotic squawk box to tell me how to think. It isn't difficult to see how the world is when you are out in it. It seems to me like the country is falling apart, and no one in the government really cares about it. That goes for both Democrats and Republicans.

Support raw milk - Vote YES on Senator Rand Paul's amendment #2180 to legalize interstate shipment of raw milk.

Senator Rand Paul has filed an amendment based on HR 1830/ S 1955, the bill that would overturn the FDA's current ban on the interstate sale or distribution of raw milk and raw milk products for human consumption. States would still be free to impose whatever regulations they think appropriate, but the FDA would no longer be able to harass raw milk farmers and co-ops based solely on the fact that the milk is unpasteurized. Americans have the right to consume these products but access has been severely limited by the FDA's regulations.

Consumers are increasingly seeking out raw milk as a natural, unprocessed food. Consumers and artisan food producers in states where raw milk cannot legally be sold (although it can legally be consumed) are seeking sources of raw milk from neighboring states. For example, consumers in Georgia buy raw milk from farmers in South Carolina, while consumers in New Jersey and Virginia seek out Pennsylvania raw milk farmers.

Support non-GMO seeds - vote YES on Senator Tester's "seeds and breeds" amendment #2234.



More and more, agriculture research is controlled by corporations who are focused on expanding their genetically engineered crops, and every year farmers are left with fewer choices of seeds that are not genetically engineered. Farmers who want to avoid growing genetically modified (GMOs) simply don't have good alternatives. And when farmers have no options, consumers have no options.



In the last Farm Bill, Congress directed the USDA to make classical plant and animal breeding a priority for funding, but the agency imposed hurdles in the grant-making process that have undermined this Congressional mandate. Tester's amendment would require the USDA to dedicate at least 5% of the grants for research to support classical breeding, as opposed to research on genetically engineered crops. The amendment does not call for any new expenditures by the government, merely an allocation of some existing research money for non-GMO research.

Dianne Feinstein is such an old Hen - she has NO IDEA on a great many things...she needs to go!

Protect pastured poultry producers from new regulations - vote NO on Senator Feinstein's egg bill amendment #2252.

Senator Feinstein's bill was developed by the US Humane Society and the United Egg Producers and requires various changes in the living conditions for caged laying hens. Although pastured producers do not use cages, they will still be affected by the bill's requirements for labeling eggs and euthanasia. The bill's exemption for small producers covers only those who handle eggs solely from a single flock of three thousand birds or fewer. Thus, if small farmers work together to create a joint brand for marketing purposes, they will not be exempt from the bill no matter how small their individual flocks are. And those farmers who are trying to expand consumer access to high-quality food by maintaining large enough flocks for wholesale or restaurant distribution will be subject to the bill.

The egg bill requires that eggs be labeled as either "eggs from free-range hens," "eggs from cage-free hens," "eggs from enriched cages," or "eggs from caged hens." There is no option for labeling the eggs as "pastured." This means that pastured producers will be forced to label their eggs with the same label as a factory farm that allows the minimal access to the outdoors required for the free-range label, placing pastured producers at a significant competitive disadvantage.

The bill also places the American Veterinary Medical Association, an organization that has repeatedly supported factory farm production practices, in charge of what constitutes humane euthanasia for laying hens. It is unclear whether on-farm slaughter will be allowed, creating a significant problem for pastured producers who sell stewing hens once their layers are no longer productive.

While the conditions in factory chicken farms undoubtedly need to be changed, this bill is not the right way to do it.

USDA and FDA may as well be done away with. Food and food ingredients as well as medicines and their ingredients are coming into this country from Mexico and China in ever increasing amounts. Do you think the companies in these countries comply with U.S. regulations? Why would they? Look it up, they are on the honor system.

Professional Educators of Tennessee will neither endorse nor reject legislative proposals concerning the arming of teachers in schools. We argue that we do not want the state to mandate educators having to carry arms or for that matter to prohibit them from carrying. It is a decision that should be made at the local level. We believe that large urban districts are likely to oppose, while rural areas will likely support. One size fits all will not work. The subject is very emotional, with good arguments coming from all sides.

We anticipate that the legislature will pass a law that empowers individual school districts to determine for themselves what direction they want to take, including qualified, certified and licensed volunteer school personnel going armed in their building. We plan to offer resources and support to districts as they make their decisions, so that whatever that decision might be it will be implemented properly and safely.

We also believe that if a district decides to allow armed teachers and administrators into the schools, the decision will not be made lightly. Volunteers who go armed in the schools will be well trained and highly qualified. We have heard from teachers around the state who are expressing their willingness to defend children. Several are ex-military and former law enforcement officers who are now classroom teachers.

Professional Educators of Tennessee strongly supports the retention and expansion of the School Resource Officer program. This is a highly effective program that serves many purposes during the school year and is invaluable where it now exists. Within the walls of schools in Nashville, for instance, SRO’s build relationships with both students and adults, building a sense of trust and security. The Metro Nashville Police Department provides these wonderful officers, and their presence is reminiscent of the popular “beat cops” of yesteryear. As a former principal, I would recommend this program to any administrator.

As Tennessee progresses into the future with improved school security, we also support posting additional guidance counselors to schools and advanced training for all teachers that will help identify problem students before a tragedy like Sandy Hook, Columbine or the Aurora theaters once again rears its ugly head. Any viable option that can lead to a safer environment in our schools and communities needs to be considered.
All schools need upgraded security, whether it is as simple and reasonable as inside locks on classroom doors, or teachers going armed. The legislature’s actions and the decisions that the districts make will impact the lives of all the inhabitants of school buildings across the state. Professional Educators of Tennessee stands ready to help them do it right.

Bill Gemmill is Professional Educators of Tennessee’s Director of Membership & Media. He retired from Metro Nashville Public Schools as a principal in 2010.

Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.
So let’s explain something to our ill-informed Democratic friends. In 2009, Mr. Obama enacted a “holiday” on the payroll tax deduction from employees’ paychecks, dropping the rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent.
Of course, dozens sought to blame it all (as usual) on President George W. Bush.
But in fact, it was Mr. Obama who enacted the “holiday,” and, to be clear, the tax cut that he pushed throughout the campaign — remember? 98 percent of Americans will get a cut under his plan?— was really the extension of the Bush tax suts. Thus, it was Mr. Obama who raised taxes on millions of Americans, not Mr. Bush.

Oh yeah, I'd really believe anything from the Washington Times, the publication founded and formally owned by the Korean who founded the "Moonies" Cult....until we threatened to deport him and we may have...I just don't remember. But, he's no longer here, probably dead by now and Good Riddance, I say.
Back in the 70's, at the pinnacle of their infestation, I was right in the middle of the Moonies's territory and they were very bad news for anybody that got caught up in their brainwashing techniques that they were known for. They were major Pests, too, especially at the Airports. And the Washington Times was their Founder's Publication!
