Anybody seeing the trend here? The more federal funds are made available to advocacy groups, the more people become dependent on the federal government for their very existance. Where does it all stop.... this out-of-control deficit spending.... just to put more on the dole to buy more votes?

A Hint Of PEBO's Direction
Some advocacy groups have been thwarted during the last 12-14 years. They now have a President they think will look kindly on their list of socialist legislative priorities. In the following categories, their wishlist includes:
1. Eliminate sentencing disparity that is harsher on crack cocaine than powder cocaine.
2. Expand alternatives to incarceration.
3. Extend federal voting rights to people released from prison.
4. Restore welfare and food stamp eligibility to people with drug felony convictions.
1. Outlaw workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
2. Epand hate-crimes laws to cover violence motivated by anti-gay bias.
3. Modify immigration laws to accommodate same-sex partners from other nations.
4. Repeal "don't ask, don't tell" policy that bars gays from serving openly in the military.
1. Close the gender wage gap and increase minimum wage.
2. Enable more workers to benefit from paid sick days and family/medical leave.
3. Ratify CEDAW [Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women], the United Nations treaty to end sex discrimination.
1. Expand access to birth control and family planning.
2. Eliminate federal support for abstinence-only sex education and support comprehensive programs that include teaching about contraception.
3. Limit or overturn policies that interfere with a woman's right to have an abortion.
1. Halt or cut back on workplace raids tareting illegal-immigrant workers.
2. Enact comprehensive immigration reform that provides illegal immigrants with options other than deportation.
The Chia Pet Ain't Just For The Window Sill Anymore
Research has revealed that more than two-thirds of all deaths in the United States are diet related. More than half of all deaths are caused by coronary occlusion, blocage of blood flow to the heart/brain. 97% of all coronary occlusion could be eliminated by a vegetarian diet. In "Advances in Cancer Research,**" researchers have concluded "At present, we have overwhelming evidence....[that] none of the risk factors for cancer is... more significant than diet and nutrition." This brings up a possible "super" food, chia seeds [called 'The Ancient Food of the Future']. Chia seed, once valued so highly it was used as currency, is familiar to most as the seeds used in the Chia Pet[tm] clay animals. The Chia seed was used for centures as a staple food by the indigenous peoples of the American southwest, Mexico and Central America. It's use as a high-energy and endurance food has been recorded as far back as the ancient Aztecs. Southwestern indians would RUN from the Colorado River to the California coast on trading missions. Their only nourishment on the trip was chia seeds. Carbohydrates are the fuel for energy in the human body. Prolonging their conversion into sugar stabilizes metabolic changes, diminishing the surges of highs and lows, creating a greater duration in the fueling effects. Mixing appropriate measures of chia seeds and water produces a semi-solid gelatin-the result of mixing the seed's soluable fiber with the water. One of the exceptional qualities of the Chia seed is it's ability to absorb 12 times it's weight in water. This ability allows the body to more efficiently regulate the absorption of nutrients and the dispersion of fluid. Chia seed may be used inconjunction with almost any diet your doctor or nutritionist feels is necessary for your diet. There's LOTS MORE information in the original article I found; listed below:
