There is so much going on in America today and it amazes me how many Americans are unaware of pending legislation that will have a huge impact on our lives and our freedom.
Global Poverty Act
Senate Bill 2433
There is legislation that passed congress in 2007 and should be before the senate soon, if not already. This bill would give the United Nations 845 BILLION dollars to fight poverty around the world. That sounds really good on the surface, but what about poverty in our own country first? Our nation is going bankrupt and Obama wants to give 845 BILLION DOLLARS to the corrupt United Nations to fight global poverty. Who will oversee the utilization of these funds? I hope it's not the same people who were to oversee the TARP funds. Just don't forget that California is nearly bankrupt. They will be holding tax refunds and welfare checks effective 02/01/2009. Recipients will receive IOU's. Can you buy groceries with those?
Obama plan ships dollars overseas - by the billions
Big Brother Parenting HR 2343
This bill really concerns me. I see lower income parents signing up for assistance and basically losing all control over decisions made for their child. It basically says that if you are poor, you are not a good parent and we will make the decisions for you. Once enrolled, there appears to be NO ability to OPT OUT. If you tried, would you be deemed a bad parent and lose your children? What if the government home visitor does not think you are a good parent based only on their opinion? There are no clear guidelines here. You need to be informed about this before it is law and you sign up.
US Government: We know parenting better than you do
This one almost makes me laugh. If we had the Fairness Doctrine in place, Obama would probably not be our President today. All laughing aside, this is serious. I consider this another assault on FREE SPEECH. Last I knew all Hannity and O'Reilly do give opposing opinions. That is the basis for their television programs. Honestly, I have not heard much of either of their radio shows, so I can't comment on their content.

If you are pro-life...you will love this one!

While the following are not bills...it is information you need to be aware of. What is happening in California is terrible. Welfare checks are being cut too. I call this poverty...and yet we are sending billions to other countries? How about sending a little of this to California?
California prepares to stop paying bills
Hate Crimes Law to include Thought Crimes, Moral objections? Does this mean churches cannot cite Biblical rejection of the homosexual lifestyle?
Obama's agenda? Overturn Supremes?
Granted, I use only one reference for all of the above, but search them out for yourselves. This information appears in many places.
We have a new government, far different from the one we have had in recent years. Educate yourselves. Read between the lines on bills. Look for what it does not say as well as what it does say where it applies to your freedom. Know your government representatives. Write them. Call them.
I am all for freedom. I support civil unions, not marriage for homosexuals. I support their right to live their life the way they want to until it takes away my freedom. I support a woman's right to control her body, until she uses abortion as a means of birth control. I support government programs to help poverty stricken families give their children the best chance in life, until it takes away their freedom to parent and make decisions for their own children. I support efforts to reduce global poverty, except in cases where we are nearly bankrupt ourselves. I support the right to free speech in all instances, with no exceptions.
If any of the above concerns you, you might make yourselves aware of a call for a Constitutional Convention. This could change our country forever! This is the thing that I am most fearful of.
If you read nothing else today, please read these:
