The "news flash" I posted previously for May 3, described the “Senate Shell Game”. Simply stated the bill is the first piece of enabling legislation that states the problem then puts money enough forward to “study” the plan in this case a million or so. And on my part why would Senator Biden say “less than $1 million per year”? Why a year? How long does it take to do a study? Snippet below
Advocates of the Global Poverty Act are claiming that it does not really commit the United States to anything... that it won't really cost anything... that it simply requires the President -- in conjunction with the Secretary of State -- to "develop" strategies to alleviate world poverty.
In fact, Biden's report incredulously states, "implementing S. 2433 would cost less than $1 million per year..."
Technically he's correct... after all, it doesn't really cost that much to develop and formulate strategies...
Then the article goes on to ask: “Why formulate or develop a strategy if there is no intention to follow through on that strategy?” A fair enough question. It then brings to light the connection to the UN's agenda.-----snippet-----”"The bill defines the term 'Millennium Development Goals' as the goals set out in the United Nations Millennium Declaration.”
The rest of the article extrapolates what could happen if we “follow through on that strategy”. I agree with the article that our Freedom will not be protected by following through with this.
-----Let me be upfront here. This Alert is an attempt to get money for CFIF so they can continue their work. Is there work worth it? You are the sole judge of that in this country that is still free. I plan on donating $20 to the cause. Will it succeed? Probably not but I figure I have to start somewhere. Like my blog, maybe this alert will help to start planting the seeds again of individual freedom and the idea that it takes effort and vigilence to keep and nurture that freedom.

ps. My next article will deal with other enabling legislation. I feel that this is where action has to be taken in the legislative process in order to nip bad legislation in the bud. Hopefully then I will be able to formulate a positive course of action, an alternative if you will to "bad" legislation.lol Check out the current daily links at the right of my blog (newest on top) to see where I'm headed next.
