What is going on
By Armand C. Hale

I receive many reports from grassroots organizations that are busy working for the "people's" business. Some have called 2010 the make or break decade of the century. There is some much buzz it's almost impossible to review all that's happening. So here is just the "first fruits" of what has been happening at the peoples' level for you to digest.

Underhanded health care maneuvers.

The ACLJ on Tuesday January 26 reports Sen. Reid and Speaker Pelosi may be figuring out a way to ram through the health care bill. Sen. Reid is suspiciously refusing to seat Senator-elect Brown. He claims he has to wait for the results of the vote to be "certified" even though Ted Kennedy himself was sworn in within 48 hours of his own election.

Whose side are they on?

Dudley Brown, Executive Director, National Association for Gun Rights exclaims, "In 2008, Richard and Sharon Swan, CEO and VP respectively, of A.R.M.S. contributed $1,000.00 to anti-gun Democrat Martha Coakley in her successful campaign for Massachusetts' Attorney General. I talked to Mr. Swan. He had no real reason to give money to anti-gun Coakley except to "have her ear." It's precisely this sort of misguided thinking that keeps anti-gunners in office despite the unpopularity of their policies.

Federal officials will dawdle, but your state legislators can push illegal aliens out of jobs and give them to unemployed citizens like you!

NumbersUSA founder Roy Beck is starting a nationwide effort to contact all 7,000-plus elected members of state legislatures to persuade them to require E-Verify to kick illegal foreign workers out of an estimated 7 million construction, service-manufacturing & transportation jobs.

William Gheen & the ALIPAC Team states, "Please remember that each state we pass immigration enforcement laws in, reduces the chances Congress will override the enforcement progress of our states with a Comprehensive Amnesty bill!"

It's the "Fair Tax Bill."

This bill being considered in Congress has more than 60 Senators and Members of the House of Representatives in sponsorship. There are seven big points to the bill. To save time and space I will report on two:

  • Eliminate forever all federal income taxes, Social Security taxes, pension taxes, capital gains taxes, taxes on businesses small and large, death taxes and all federal payroll deductions, and replace them with a single sales tax on new items purchased at retail.

  • Shut down the IRS, and assign the 67,500-page, hopelessly complex US Tax Code to the trash pile.

NOM National Marriage News report.

The study, released by the Office of Planning Research and Evaluation in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is called "Fourth National Incident Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (NIS-4)." What family form best protects children from one of the worst harms of all child abuse? The answer is: the child's own mom and dad united by marriage.

Don't give up now or give in. Keep plugging away. Maybe we can be remembered as the "next greatest" after the World War II generation!"
