STATE OF THINGS - LEGISLATION - June 4th, 2009

COMMENTARY.

Though much of what is being reported regarding legislation in today’s State of Things seems far removed from the crucial abortion/euthanasia debate please be assured that the current apparent merging of education with labor, as I have been attempting to illustrate, is a very important and long sought move to control not only the means of education but the individual who will provide the labor of production.

This does not mean that abortion has been reduced to a secondary concern. Far from it. However, if we chose not to understand the relationship between the value placed on individual human life and its correlation to education and labor we will fail in our task to stop the destruction of human life.

At the same time we need to recognize the central role of certain media personalities in acting as the front man for the change agents for all this change in the values for which our country has stood these 200 plus years. These reporters and commentators write about current activities but in such a way as to lull us into accepting changing goals in education, health care and “human resources” aka laborers.

An example is Ellen Goodman. Since the election of Obama as President she has written some devastating articles, She wrote (5-12-09) an article entitled: “Times when rationing may be rational.” This concerned a subtle but strong pitch for euthanasia using the example of President Obama’s grandmother. She quoted him as saying: “…he would have paid for the operation himself if necessary, but then he asked aloud whether society should be expected to pay for such treatment of any other terminally ill parent or grandparent. Was this a ‘sustainable model?’ “ Goodman goes on to say that she was struck by the thought that, said Obama, “she died peacefully in her sleep with my sister at her side.”

Well, excuse me, if it is wrong to burden society or individuals with providing the funds to pay for a family member’s health needs, why is it okay, in fact, demanded, that society pay for the killing of pre-born babies?

Goodman then goes on to frame an important question: But, aren’t there places at the end of life where ethics and economics, compassion and cost, dovetail rather than conflict?” Sometimes, in her mind, choosing to withhold health care is a superior moral value to one in which money is spent on health care (and just maybe education) of one who is no longer a (presumed) productive member of society.

She also wrote a column predating Obama’s appearance at Notre Dame entitled: “Change in abortion debate is welcome, but not expected.” She reminds us that during the campaign Obama promised that his administration will initiate a fresh conversation on family planning, working to find common ground to meet the needs of women and families around the world.”

Of course Obama and the Progressives would like to find a common ground, a ground where labor is not burdened or interrupted by the health care needs of pregnant or abortive women. The goal of labor is the continual productivity of the laborer. Universal birth control will achieve that common ground. Planned Parenthood’s easy access to our children in the schools, through cell phone and online sites push birth control.

Therefore: labor needs workers who are educated to supply the required level of productivity of the market place, and no further, and both education and labor require healthy individuals unencumbered by the results of lifestyle activities. One should always ask themselves, when they read articles about sex education classes helping to reduce pregnancy and abortion, are the students not engaging in sexual activity or are they contraception? In that regard sex ed. classes are merely designed to produce contraceptors. that’s outcome based education - OBE.

In my last report I wrote about the Workforce Investment Act and Youth build legislation along with a listing of about 5 bills. These bills plus many more have now gotten out of their respective house suspense files and are making their way to the second house for passage, some have already made that leap. the deadline to pass to the second house and survive is now past.

Now is the time for intense activity in supporting or opposing bills, please choose one or all of these bills to urge your legislators to oppose. Get a supply of postal cards and tell your legislator to oppose bill #_____ because. Use your fax machine to send an online composed message. Use your phone to call your legislator’s local office, or if you have unlimited minutes on your cell phone call the Sacramento office of your legislator and require that the receptionist list your position on a certain bill.

LEGISLATION.

Note: During a phone conversation with a spokeswoman for the state Work Force Investment Board (CWIB), Jennifer Mitchell, I asked her, in regard to the WFIB as an example, if, once a federal bill passed that called for initiating programs in all the states, were the states mandated to follow through with the development of state and local branches? She said, “yes.” I then asked her if all states were required to be as gung-ho as California in developing and implementing the program?. She acknowledged that California seemed to be a very enthusiastic state in embracing these federal workforce mandates. She indicated that county WFIB’s could chose just how active they wanted to be and/or how large a cohort of providers and clients they wanted to work with. for instance, the state board determined that the age range would be 14 years to 24 years of age, but some counties were choosing the 16-21 year range.

This eagerness to create state and county level agencies, which must go through the pretense of passing legislation authorizing the taking of the federal grants and the creation of local agencies can be seen in several bills racing through the state legislature this term.

When I asked Ms Mitchell what would happen if a particular bill didn’t get passed she seemed lost for words, then said, well, we don’t have to worry this year because the youth summer work program funds are already available. They don’t know what will happen next year, though.

All these bills have passed their first house (Assembly) and are awaiting Senate hearings. All of these bills provide for government agencies, i.e. health, education and labor, to partner with community organizations to deliver a broad spectrum of services to just about every segment of any community. Groups such as Planned Parenthood, ACORN, PICO, Catholic Charities, La Raza, etc.

AB 3, V. Manuel Perez, (D-Indio) Workforce development: Renewable Energy Workforce Readiness Initiative.
.
Sponsors include Planned Parenthood of San Diego along with a long list of trade unions, and community non-profits.

This bill which went through a major amending process strengthens the authority and oversight of the CWIB; ensures green collar career placement and advancement opportunities within California’s renewable energy manufacturing, construction, installation, maintenance, and operation sectors that is targeted towards specified populations.

These targeted populations tend to be teens, low income families, illegals, parolees, disabled, unwed mothers.

The Green Collar Jobs Council, waits for funds of $787 M from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, expecting also $480 M from the Fed. Workforce Investment Act for youth and an additional $70 M for supplemental things.

Includes Non-profits in the mix of groups able to receive this money to help develop job markets. Previously I wrote that the Office of Statewide Health Education and Development authorized grant money to about 3 Planned parenthood clinics (one in Concord, Ca. to train non-medical people in the performance of abortions.

AB 1559, Workforce Development: Summer Youth Job Training. This bill is authored by the Assembly Labor and Employment Committee. It requires the CWIB, in collaboration with local workforce investment boards, to establish the California Youth at Work Program, for the purpose of providing summer job training and work experience opportunities for youth…”through partnerships and effective collaboration.”

Though it sets up summer time youth employment and the funds for that employment are already received by the state; Ms Mitchell admitted that a major part of their mandate is to work with the business and private sectors to predetermine the future job market in various localities and to then work with the schools to prepare students for that job market.

The federal Reinvestment Act has set aside $1,200,000,000 for all 50 states for development of these workforce programs. California will receive $500 million and the summer youth employment program has $186.6 Million to pay for 50,000 California youth for this summer at minimum wage which, in California is $8.00 according to the CWIB. The local employer will pay nothing.

California has 49 county boards (unelected members often referred to as shadow government jobs) plus the state board.

AB 857, Kathleen Galgiani, (D-Merced). Workforce Development: One-Stop Career Centers. Service Employees International Union - SEIU - is the sponsor of this bill. It sets up the delivery of unemployment services at One-Stop-Career-Centers. The bill is quite vague and Ms Galgiani’s office has not responded to questions of where will these one-stop centers be established. the suspicion is that they will be at schools. Schools have been targeted for some time by community planners as one-stop service centers for health care, jobs, day care and education/training of youth and life-long learners.

AB 543, Fiona Ma, (D-San Francisco) Perinatal Care: Nurse-Family Partnerships. Nurse-Family Partnerships, apparently an adjunct to Invest In Kids, originally a Canadian org. are the co-sponsors.

This is yet another group of professionals who, like Rob Reiner’s First Five program, believe that only professionals can best rear our children. This bill authorizes the creation, funding and promotion of programs placing visiting nurses into all the homes of women no more than 28 weeks into their pregnancy and for 2 or more years after birth, to assist parents in the proper rearing of their children preparing them for school readiness at age 5.

Though this program would be placed in the department of Public Health, no place in the bill stipulates that the “nurse” must be a registered medical nurse. This is just like the parish nurse program about which I reported a couple of years ago. That “nurse” is merely a member of the community who is a good listener and able to sign up clients for Healthy Families Medicare programs.

USSHR 2205, Danny Davis (D-Il) Early childhood Home Visitation Programs. This is the federal level legislation that will establish the mandate for the state programs of home visitation programs. I prefer to call this California’s version of the home invasion program.

This bill discusses the “proper care of infants and youth Children.” It appropriates $150 Million for the first year to target pregnant, especially first time moms, immigrants, native Americans as defined under the ESEA - Elementary and Secondary Education Act. It sets of partnerships between health, education and community service providers to monitor the home life and lifestyles of young families.

Please contact your legislators, mostly Senators since these bills are now in the senate. Urge their “NO” vote. All of these bills effect the family relationship and line of authority substituting the state for parental guidance.

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
