$80 billion secret Democrat spending program

BY JAMES GREIFF
Bloomberg News Food Obama
Published: August 22, 2014

Imagine a government program that has exploded in size, is the subject of bitter partisan haggling and spends almost $80 billion a year in secret.

No, not the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency or the Department of Homeland Security, which all spend less (as far as anyone call tell). The program in question is food stamps, formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which now is used by one in six Americans.

But after the Department of Agriculture lost a court case in January, in which it opposed telling the public which businesses get all that money, the government is reconsidering: This month it said it would think about revealing how much money individual retailers receive. The department is accepting public comments on the proposal. If the past is any indication, big-box retailers, supermarkets and convenience stores will oppose it.

Let’s hope the department ignores them, if only to make good on the principle that taxpayers deserve to know how their money is spent. Nor is there sound legal precedent for withholding food-stamp spending data. Other social programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, provide a bounty of data on how much specific vendors receive in government payments and are releasing more all the time.

What might the food-stamp information tell us? At a minimum, we would get confirmation that they make up a large part of the sales of some of the country’s biggest retailers, such as Wal-Mart Stores. Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest grocer, has already acknowledged the importance of food stamps in its latest annual report. It warned that if the program ever experienced large spending cuts — as House Republicans unsuccessfully demanded during much of the past two years — its results could be hurt. Wal-Mart had about $279 billion in U.S. sales last year, about half from groceries.

We might also get some insight into where and how fraud occurs in the food-stamp program. That was one rationale in the court ruling, which noted that “Congress has clearly indicated its intent to involve the public in counteracting fraud perpetrated by retailers participating in the program.” Although fraud is estimated by the Government Accountability Office at about 1 percent, that’s as much as $800 million a year.

If the data were public, watchdogs and the news media could ferret out retailers that do an inordinate amount of food-stamp business, perhaps because they permit misuse of the benefits. This was one of the reasons that the USDA ended up in court in the first place: A newspaper in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the Argus Leader, filed a Freedom of Information Act request as part of an investigation into claims that beneficiaries received cash from retailers instead of food.

A number of food activists think the Agriculture Department should go further and disclose what products are purchased. The department shouldn’t hesitate to do so. Food stamps can be used to buy almost anything, with the exception of tobacco and alcohol and a short list of nonfood goods such as pet food, soap, household supplies and some prepared foods. That leaves the entire universe of junk food, which is responsible in large measure for the U.S. obesity epidemic. Obtaining product information might help public-health officials persuade lawmakers to adopt reasonable prohibitions on food-stamp use; a parallel nutrition program known as Women, Infants and Children already bars almost all heavily processed foods.

Any complaints by the USDA that imposing limits would be too complicated have to be viewed skeptically. Food stamps are stamps in name only: Beneficiaries make purchases with a card much like that used at an automated teller machine. The cards could be programmed to help the USDA glean valuable data on what recipients are buying. With that, the government could develop a “do-not-sell” list that retailers could incorporate into the product codes that are scanned at the point of sale.

This might even pay dividends:

Along with ensuring that beneficiaries have healthier diets, it might steal some of the rhetorical heat from those who think too many people on food stamps are living high on the taxpayer’s dime.

In California Sex Ed For Ninth Graders Now Features Sex Toys, Oral Sex And, Of Course, BONDAGE

Over a thousand outraged parents who have children enrolled in taxpayer-funded public schools in Fremont, Calif. have signed petitions threatening legal action over a ninth-grade health textbook featuring oral sex, vibrators and, of course, bondage.

The 392-page textbook, which will be in use in the Bay Area school district, is called “Your Health Today.” It is rarely assigned to ninth graders, and it is not used in any other California school districts. Instead, it is most frequently used by professors in college-level health classes, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The semester-long course in which the textbook will be used is a required course for graduation.

In addition to the bondage information, Fremont high school freshmen get to see detailed illustrations of female and male sexual organs in different phases of arousal. Those phases are “excitement,” “plateau,” “orgasm” and “resolution.”

The book also contains guidelines for using Internet dating sites, information concerning masturbation and explanations of the major sexual positions. Other sections are devoted to gay marriage and e-cigarettes. Lady Gaga, actors from the “Harry Potter” movies and rapper Rick Ross also make cameos in the academic tome.

School officials have defended their decision to utilize the textbook by saying that 14-year-old kids need to know about sex, bondage and orgasms well before they reach college.

“We really want them to have a safe place to get facts about their bodies and how to handle things and how they need to be mature to deal with these things,” Fremont Unified School District board president Lara Calvert-York told the Chronicle.

Impressed school district health teachers unanimously chose the textbook for their 2,400 ninth-grade charges. The school board narrowly voted 3-2 to adopt it.

Michele Hartmangruber, who works at a Fremont high school, heartily endorsed the book’s raunchy contents.

“I want to let everyone know, if you think sex isn’t happening with your freshmen, you need to take your blinders off,” she said at a June school board meeting. “It’s happening, and it’s happening in the corners, in the bathrooms, in the cars, in the parks and even on the 50-yard line in front of everyone.”
Thus, Hartmangruber concluded, “You have to educate at the ninth-grade level.”

The parents who have signed the petition disagree.

“I feel that it’s not age appropriate for these kids,” mad mother Asfia Ahmed, who has a son entering ninth grade, told the Chronicle.

In a letter to the school board, Ahmed described the textbook as offensive and essentially pornographic at certain points.

“I was shocked when I looked at the book the first time,” she wrote, according to the Chronicle. “I am willing to pursue legal action, and I have other parents willing to support me on this.”

THE MAN WITH THE MISDIRECTED AND SUPERFLUOUS MONEY

Funding Our Enemies = Killing Ourselves

Mad Money
By Michael Reisig

Sometimes it’s just hard to accept the truth. But here it is in cold, hard words: America is losing its ascendancy in the world, dropping faster than Solyndra’s stocks in the wintertime. Yet we still insist on wasting our country’s reserves on nations who abhor us, and people who are not even citizens.

This latest immigration crisis is the perfect example of a president who is no longer thinking about the citizens of his country, but more concerned about his image in the world. We are now experiencing the largest influx of asylum seekers since the 1980 Mariel boatlift from Cuba.

In less than ten months we have seen 52,000 children, most of which are from Central America, and most unaccompanied by adults, cross our border and be taken into custody. Almost double the number from last year and still growing. President Obama has called on Congress to cough up $4 billion to deal with the situation. Four Billion Dollars… And you wonder why we’re a failing country.

fundingOur present administration can’t seem to find enough places to spend our money: This year – Pakistan ($3.1 BILLION), Afghanistan ($3.9 BILLION), Israel ($3 BILLION), Nigeria $647 million (for Nigeria!), Russia ($67.8 million). We’re even giving China $12.9 million, and $20 million has been allocated to Cuba!

Are we insane? We’re financing our enemies around the globe while our nation is failing, our infrastructure is collapsing, and our economy is going into a final dive – and we’re giving CHINA MONEY! We’re giving Nigeria $647 million freaking dollars!

Now I know some of you out there are saying that money is used to promote democracy and human rights, to fight HIV and AIDS, and provide education for children. You’re right – that’s what some of it is allocated for in many cases. But after that money has passed from one potentate’s hand to the next, and been used to buy favors from jungle and desert brigands, then dribbled down to unscrupulous civil allocators, about one-tenth of it actually makes it to where it was supposed to go. BUT IT ALL CAME OUT OF THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER’S POCKET.

Speaking of money that comes from taxpayer’s pockets, the current policy of “Birthright Citizenship” costs America millions each year. Thousands of pregnant illegal aliens commit trespass in order to give birth on U.S. soil. There’s a bustling birth tourism industry, offering pregnant foreigners on tourist visas housing and comfort until U.S. citizenship arrives for/with their child.

The truth is, Birthright Citizenship actually represents an incorrect, “interpreted” overview of the Constitution. Brian Fisher, with the American Family Association has offered an accurate analysis of this situation and I would like to pass on some of it.

foreign“We do not need to amend the Constitution to fix this problem; a correct reading of the Constitution indicates that such children born on our soil are specifically excluded from citizenship.

The clause found in the 14th Amendment reads, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the United States…”

A plain reading clearly indicates that birthright citizenship is granted only to those who are “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States when they are born on American soil. Illegal aliens and their children, by definition, are not subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. The “jurisdiction” clause was added to the 14th Amendment only after a lengthy debate. Sen. Jacob Howard of Michigan proposed the amendment because he wanted to make it clear that the simple accident of birth on U.S. soil was not in fact enough to confer citizenship. The logic is inescapable. If the children of foreign diplomats, who are in this country legally, are not U.S. citizens by birth, how is it possible that children of illegal aliens could be?”

Welcome to America the Insane.

Black Former NFL Linebacker Says, ‘Democrats Destroying Black Communities’


Former Linebacker Garry Cobb, who is now running for Congress, slams the Democratic party saying that they are destroying black communities. Check it out…

Cobb, 57, explained that Democrat Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society programs, supposedly designed to combat poverty, had the opposite effect on black Americans, forcing fathers out of homes and destroying black families.
“In order to get on the program (LBJ’s eliminate poverty program), the man had to leave the home,” Cobb said. “It’s destroyed African-American families throughout the country.”
“I was all into the Democratic Party and everything and then I started realizing they helped destroy our communities and we’re celebrating electing these people,” Cobb, who volunteers his time helping underprivileged youth in the Camden, New Jersey area, recalled.
“African American communities throughout the country are doing horribly under Democratic-run cities and that’s why I want to put an end to it,” Cobb said.
