Keeping ObamaCare Front and Center

Keeping ObamaCare Front and Center

The "Choose Freedom -- Stop ObamaCare" action project was planned to be used on multiple fronts in case one avenue didn't work (not relying just on the Supreme Court or courts in general and Congress). While work through Congress has not been very successful, work continues moving very well forward through the states.


When a core or key group of state legislators understand their role in protecting their citizens from the overreach of the federal government, states begin standing up for themselves and can begin the long process of shedding the unconstitutional shackles that have been imposed on them by the federal government.

The JBS and The New American websites report on a number of states working on nullification. Georgia, Missouri and South Carolina are the latest. Oklahoma continues to move ahead as well. It is challenging the law in the courts and in the legislature. In 2013, the Oklahoma House passed an ObamaCare nullification bill by 72-20; however, it was kept from coming to a vote by one senator. This year liberty supporters are once again pushing hard to get it passed.


How will they do this? By getting organized, educating opinion leaders and elected officials and educating other concerned voters. For quite some time, volunteer JBS leaders have been networking and organizing not just amongst themselves, but with many other liberty-minded organizations. Many coalitions have been created with the goal of restoring and expanding liberty.


To help break through the legislative stalemate of nullifying ObamaCare, Oklahomans are organizing educational rallies to recruit and garner additional support to further their educational efforts.


If you're in Oklahoma, get involved today! If you're not, what can you be doing to start organizing and educating? Joining The John Birch Society would be a great start!

The Americans With No Abilities Act (ANAA)

(Original author unknown)

President Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate are considering
sweeping legislation that will provide new benefits for many more
Americans. The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as
a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans
who lack any real skills or ambition.


"Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and
drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in
society," said California Sen. Barbara Boxer. "We can no longer
stand by and allow People of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and
passed over. With this legislation, employers will no longer be
able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply
because they have some idea of what they are doing."


In a Capitol Hill press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pointed to the success of the
U.S. Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing
opportunity without regard to performance. At the state government
level, the Department of Motor Vehicles also has an excellent record
of hiring Persons with No Ability (63 percent).


Under the Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million
mid-level positions will be created, with important-sounding titles
but little real responsibility, thus providing an illusory sense
of purpose and performance.


Mandatory non-performance-based raises and promotions will be
given to guarantee upward mobility for even the most unremarkable
employees. The legislation provides substantial tax breaks to
corporations that promote a significant number of Persons of
Inability (POI) into middle-management positions, and give a tax
credit to small and medium-sized businesses that agree to hire one
clueless worker for every two talented hires.


Finally, the Americans With No Abilities Act contains tough new
measures to make it more difficult to discriminate against the
non-abled, banning, for example, discriminatory interview questions
such as, "Do you have any skills or experience that relate to
this job?"


"As a non-abled person, I can't be expected to keep up with people
who have something going for them," said Mary Lou Gertz, who lost
her position as a lug-nut twister at the GM plant in Flint, Mich.,
due to her inability to remember righty tighty, lefty loosey. "This
new law should be real good for people like me. I'll finally have
job security." With the passage of this bill, Gertz and millions
of other untalented citizens will finally see a light at the end
of the tunnel.


Said Sen. Dick Durbin,II: "As a senator with no abilities, I believe the
same privileges that elected officials enjoy ought to be extended
to every American with no abilities. It is our duty as lawmakers
to provide each and every American citizen, regardless of his or
her inadequacy, with some sort of space to take up in this great
nation and a good salary for doing so."


This message was approved by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Diane
Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

Drugs and Drug Money

Here is a post I made in response that Karma made to all of us.  What happens to drugs and drug money when confiscated by law enforcement in the country.  I have provide the link to a website that gives a reason explanation until the last paragraph.  That paragraph bothers me.  What do you think.

Well, Karma, I am a little more rested if not misguided doing this on Christmas.  Here is a link from which I copied the info below.  I was sort of okay with this until I got to the last line.  Department of Justice.  That is like dropping a new business in the laps of crooks similar (possibly) to gun running.  I can only imagine what the Mexican government does with it.  Requires further investigation by, I believe, the Senate.  Hopefully we can get other to comment here. 


Each jurisdiction has their own set of rules, regulations, and laws, but generally the drugs and money will either be disposed of (by at least two witnesses) or they will be kept. (Drugs can be used for training or future investigative operations. Money goes back to the parent government, NOT the seizing agency.) There is usually some forms that need to be filled out and approved by the chief of the law enforcement organization and the prosecutor's office and/or judge.

If the drugs are kept, they are stored in the property/evidence room and only checked out for operations/training - they're weighed when they leave and weighed again when they come back. If there's any missing and it wasn't used in an approved training or operation, it would be your ass. The drugs could be used for K-9 training or controlled burns (how do you think that cops and confidential informants know what marijuana smells like - they, like the dogs, have to have it signed off in their personnel/training records.) We will also use it to do field test training for those that don't get a lot of exposure to it (probation/parole officers, investigative assistants, confidential informants etc.) Operations is what you suspect - reverse buy/busts or buy/walks.

As I said, money that has been seized (and approved for forfeiture during a hearing) funnels back to the parent government and they disburse it as they see fit. At the Federal level, that is the Department of Justice.
