“This proposal would devastate retirees and their surviving spouses,” said Karen Friedman, executive vice president of the Pension Rights Center, a nonprofit group. “The proposal would also torpedo basic protections of the federal private pension law … that states that once benefits are earned, they can’t be cut back.”
All the pension benefits that have been promised government retirees, in other words, are about to be stolen back from retirees.
This is precisely what I’ve long warned Natural News readers was coming. And this is merely the very beginning of the true destruction of the financial collapse headed our way. When the next market crash arrives, billions of dollars in retirement funds will be destroyed virtually overnight, and pension funds nationwide will be wiped out.
FK – I’ve never understood why anyone would depend solely on a ‘pension’ unless they were just poor and had no other choice. Usually there is some other choice, like demanding your employer pay you a fair share of their profits. But that might require thought, action and responsibility, the three things the average sheeple avoids at all costs.
Relating to the use of sound suppressors, commonly referred to as silencers, the act allows for hunters in the state to hunt wild turkey and other game birds; small game such as squirrels and rabbits; and white-tailed deer and feral pigs. It further includes a “Shall Sign/Certify” provision to require Chief Law Enforcement Officers to process National Firearms Act applications for suppressors and other Title II firearms such as short barreled rifles and transferable machine guns. Once Gov. Kasich signs the new law, CLEOs will be required to sign applications unless the applicant is found to be a prohibited person.
According to the latest figures from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the number of registered suppressors in Ohio increased by 144 percent in a one-year period ending April 2013 to some 25,353 devices. A trade industry group specializing in the devices championed the show of strong support for increased acceptance of suppressors, pointing out the safety benefits of their use in the field.
Answers in Genesis, which is building the life-size version of Noah’s Ark – 510 feet long, 85 feet wide and three stories high – announced Thursday it was informed by the state that it could participate in the tourism program on two conditions.
The organization is required to “waive its right to include a religious preference in hiring” and “affirm that it will tolerate no ‘proselytizing’ at the theme park.”
Not possible, AiG responded, on billboard messages and elsewhere.
AiG said Kentucky officials bowed to pressure from secularist groups when it denied the Ark Encounter theme park an opportunity to participate in a popular tax rebate incentive program offered by the state’s tourism office.”
FK – What a dark age we exist in, mindless mythology vs. big government. Of course it’s all ‘inerrant’ and ‘symbolic’ at the same time. They’ll look at you with a straight fact and tell you their version, sub-version, or subversion of their very bad history, ancient propaganda, is right. It’s easier than thinking.
Even the head of the F.W. De Klerk Foundation, named after the South African president who voluntarily surrendered power to Communist Party bigwig Nelson Mandela’s Soviet-backed African National Congress (ANC), is sounding the alarm about the communist threat. And as if to highlight the looming danger, the Communist Party of China will be financing and building a “political leadership school” to train future ANC bosses in communist doctrine and strategy. The ANC, of course, rules South Africa in an alliance with the brutal South African Communist Party (SACP) and a self-styled Marxist-Leninist umbrella group for labor unions known as COSATU.
FK – Could Dan Rather have been lying when that famed newswhore told us “Communism is dead?” Surely not. “Liberals” and ‘progressives,’ the amerikan communist insurgency, are our friends and only want us disarmed so they can make us safe.
“[B]etween 40 and 50 Republican representatives have already jumped ship and are opposing the Republican leadership,” Gun Owners of America told members in a Tuesday alert describing rank and file push-back against what is being widely perceived as a GOP betrayal and sell-out. “This means that at least a fifth — and maybe more — of [House Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi’s minions will have to be ordered to support [House Speaker John] Boehner for it to pass. And Pelosi has made it clear to the press that the bill will have to be altered to be satisfactory to her in order for her to provide those votes.
GOA stood alone among national gun rights groups in November, warning that passing the bill will result in giving Congressional Democrats control of Congress for the next 10 months, as the “so-called ‘long-term CR [continuing resolution]’ … would set policy and spending until the end of the fiscal year (September 30, 2015).” Their solution was to call instead for “a ‘short-term CR’ into January, February, or March. This would allow the newly elected Republican Congress to set spending and policy for the federal government for most of next year.”
FK – As usual GOA stands alone. Where’s the “No Rights that aren’t Allowed’ group, waiting for their tee-off time with bonehead and Pelosi?
According to the 2014 DEA National Drug Threat Assessment (pdf) released in late November, slightly more than half of all heroin seized in the United States in 2012 originated in South America, while Mexico accounted for 45 percent.
The data continues a long-term trend. The DEA says South America has consistently supplied the United States with the majority of the country’s heroin since the mid-1990s, with 2011 serving as the only exception.
FK – Sending in U.N. troops would be the best thing they could do for us. It’ll be a lot easier to get Bubba to kill the furriners than his cousin in the ‘National” guard or his neighbor on the local cop force.
