VETERANS HEALTH CARE includes Food Educating people about markets and ways of producing. Public investment in HealthCare can do things that private investment can’t Included in Farm and Jobs Bill

House Passes Republican Farm Bill Without Food Stamp AidThe Obama administration has threatened to veto the farm measure that excludes food stamp and nutrition programs.

  1. Do you believe that Veterans should be given an opportunity to feed self and others and an opportunity to create jobs in farming?
  2. Do you think that the president should veto a bill that creates hunger in America without creating a jobs bill first?
  3. Do you believe that the jobs being transferred to the ALEC Prison Industry negatively effects middle class jobs

BEGINNING FARMER AND RANCHER OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 2013 

Smallholder farmers actually produced most of the world’s food and they are also some of the people that sometimes go hungry,” explained ActionAid’s senior policy analyst Doug Hertzler. “There are studies over many decades that show smallholder farmers can actually produce more food per land area than large farms when they have adequate access to resources and input.” there are dedicated people who see great opportunities in agriculture today and want to start their own farm or ranch businesses.

Military Veterans:  the Next Generation of

Organic Farmers 

The Beginning Farmer and Rancher Opportunity Act will invest in the next generation of American producers by:

  • Enabling access to land, credit, and technical assistance for new producers.
  • Assisting new producers to launch and strengthen new farm and value-added businesses.
  • Helping new producers become good land stewards.
  • Providing training, mentoring, and research that beginning farmers and ranchers need to be successful.
  • Conducting outreach on agricultural job opportunities for military veterans.

PROVISIONS

Title I – Conservation

Sections 101, 102 & 131 — Conservation Reserve Program Transition Incentive Program (CRP-TIP) – Amend Sections 1231 and 1235 of the Food Security Act to reauthorize CRP-TIP through 2018 and provide $50 million in mandatory funding over the life of the new farm bill. Additionally, include provisions to strengthen the conservation language, create a comprehensive conservation plan option, create an easement option through the Grassland Reserve Program or the Farm and Ranch Land Protection Program, and allow transition between family members who meet the eligibility criteria but only in the case of land sales to the younger generation.   Will help retiring farmers make their land available for the next generation of farmers to afford.

Healthcare overhaul often referred to as Obamacare will ultimately help reduce recidivism and lower the cost of providing medical services to those leaving prison

Inside Criminal Justice

Beginning in 2014, Americans who earn up to 133 percent of the federal poverty line and reside in 25 states that have agreed to a Medicaid expansion will qualify for access to the government insurance program. Those who earn up to four times the poverty line will qualify for federally subsidized insurance.

Healthcare overhaul often referred to as Obamacare will ultimately help reduce recidivism and lower the cost of providing medical services to those leaving prison.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has the potential to dramatically reduce costs associated with incarceration and prisoner re-entry, a U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) official said yesterday at a conference on health care and corrections at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City.

Local and federal governments spend about $80 billion annually on corrections — about $35,000 per inmate, but Amy Solomon, an advisor to the DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs, noted that those receiving continuing healthcare beyond incarceration are significantly less likely to be re-arrested.

New California Prison Plan Would Reform, Not Expand, State’s Overcrowded System

Steinberg’s plan “has the potential to reduce population and spending,” said Glenn Backes, a lobbyist for the Drug Policy Alliance, an advocacy group. “It’s a better plan than the governor’s. There’s still a lot of work to do to address the racist drug war, but this is better.”

Mental-health coverage to get a big boost under Obamacare

Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance plans offered in the new marketplaces will have to cover a core set of services called “essential health benefits.” Included on the list of 10 benefits are

mental-health and substance-use disorder services, which include behavioral health treatment, counseling and psychotherapy. Specifically, as part of what’s considered preventive services, plans will also cover alcohol-misuse screening and counseling, depression screening for adults and adolescents, domestic and interpersonal violence screening for women, and behavioral assessments for children.

●One in five adults has experienced a mental-health issue.

●Half of all mental-health disorders first show up before a person turns 14. Three-quarters of mental-health disorders begin before 24. But less than 20 percent of children and adolescents with mental-health problems receive the treatment they need.

●One in 20 Americans lived with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or major depression.

But when torture, starvation, disease and routine murder are added to the mix, the ordeal can be truly terrifying. 

California Governor Proposes Massive Prison Expansion To Avoid Freeing Inmates

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday announced a $315 million plan to expand the state prison system’s capacity by thousands of beds, allowing the state to comply with a federal court order to sharply reduce the population of its overcrowded facilities by the end of the year.

Under the governor’s plan, the state would move some 12,000 inmates from overcrowded state prisons into private prisons and county jails. During a press conference in Sacramento on Tuesday, Brown portrayed the plan as necessary to ensure “public safety,” noting that it would allow California to meet the court requirements without releasing prisoners.

California’s state senate offered an alternate plan, which creates financial incentives to promote rehabilitation, drug, and mental health treatment programs as a way to reduce recidivism. Brown reiterated that regardless of the crime or the health and public safety risk of the prisoner, his state would not be releasing any prisoners.

 Governor Brown in Bed with Prison Guard Union

In an unconventional move, private prisons targeted for the expansion would be staffed with state employees, an arrangement that would allow the governor and his allies in the legislature to avoid a politically risky confrontation with the state’spowerful prison guard union.

Stop Fighting Black People–Out of the mouths of GOP’s Although Cruz has maligned all hardworking, decent and outstanding Nigerian-Americans

Out of the mouths of GOP’s Although Cruz has maligned all hardworking, decent and outstanding Nigerian-Americans who add value and bring goodwill to their different communities, especially in Texas, with the largest concentration of Nigerian-Americans in this country. Nigerian Born Philip Emeagwali’s greatest achievement, that warranted him the most praise, was The Connection Machine. The Connection Machine utilizes 65,000 computers linked in parallel to form the fastest computer on Earth. This computer can perform 3.1 billion calculations per second. This is faster than the theoretical top speed of the Cray Supercomputer. Though he did not “invent” The Connection Machine, his work on it won Philip Emeagwali the Gordon Bell Prize of 1989. The parallel computer was twice as fast as the previous year’s computer. The Connection Machine was a great advancement over previous designs built by IBM‘s design teams of Thomas J. Watson, Jr. and Fred Brook.

Philip Emeagwali”I find supercomputing to be a fascinating, challenging, and critical technology that can be used to solve many important societal problems, such as predicting the spread of AIDS, and many other computational `grand challenges.’ These are scientific problems whose accurate solution requires that a quadrillion or more arithmetical calculations be performed,” the computer wiz says. Such problems are impossible to solve on traditional computers, but massively parallel supercomputers will make it possible. Mr President please do as CRUZ suggested and consult Mr. Philip Emeagwali . Mr. Philip Emeagwali please offer your services to your brother.

Stop fighting Black People.

cops should work near their own homes–13-year-old boy carrying a BB gun was killed by a Expert Firearms deputy who thought his lookalike was real

 

one officer shot, one did not. The officer has PTSD, could be shell shot, this isn’t Iraq, find cover or best of all know your neighbourhood a lot better.  I thought cops were to work in their own community. They have protection. You can’t just shoot kids down. You are trained, they are not. If you are afraid, patrol another neighbourhood that you feel more comfortable serving and protecting.

We need our own community police. scary ass cops should work near their own homes

On Monday, the sheriff’s office confirmed the deputy who fired the seven shots was Erick Gelhaus,48, a 24-year-veteran of the force, who is also a firearms expert, Iraq War veteran, and a regular contributor to magazines and blogs that tackle gun issues. In Nov. 2008 SWAT magazine article titled “Ambush Reaction in the Kill Zone,” Gelhaus wrote about how you need to stay “in the kill zone” or “bad things will happen to you.”

In order to do that, he wrote, “you must take some kind of action” and find your “mean gene.” (PDF)

Health Care Stocks are up/What do you think? Do Republicans have any right to compare Obamacare to slavery?

  •  

    Laws that curtailed individual rightsIn 1843, the legislature curtailed slave and free Negro rights to dispense medicine.Selling, preparing or administering medicine became a misdemeanor whose penalty was a public whipping. Preparation of drugs by free Negroes that caused abortions carried a penalty of five to ten years in prison. If a slave prepared a drug to cause abortion, the first time offender received a public whipping. Any offense after that was a hanging offense.In 1858, free people of color could not buy wine or ardent spirits unless they had written permission from three or more justices that they were sober, orderly and of good character. In 1860, free Negroes could not be ordinary or tavern keepers and were proscribed from selling hard liquor. 

  • The Obama Care is an 
option, to what is known to many as the Prison Industry. In actuality it is the
greatest equalizer since the Black Laws of Virginia’s restrictions to
individual rights. Negroes first appeared in Virginia in August 1619, whereby
in contrast to ACA, Laws that curtailed individual rights In 1843, the
legislature curtailed SLAVE and FREE Negus’ rights to dispense medicine. 



“Selling, preparing or
administering medicine became a misdemeanor whose penalty was a public
whipping. Preparation of drugs by free Negroes that caused abortions carried a
penalty of five to ten years in prison. If a slave prepared a drug to cause
abortion, the first time offender received a public whipping. Any offence after
that was a hanging offence. In 1858, free people of colour
could not buy wine or ardent spirits unless they had written permission from
three or more justices that they were sober, orderly and of good character. In
1860, free Negroes could not be ordinary or tavern keepers and were proscribed
from selling hard liquor.” 



When I study this fact, I am, in fact more, reminded
of the effects of the War on Drugs. Absolutely NOT Obama care! ObamaCare
provides access to equality in healthcare for all or to any one
that chooses to be covered, that is, with the elected officials permission
(that’s more like slavery), Obama Care will now cover mental
health, resultantly, there is no longer a need for self-medicating.

When Negus’ first arrived, healthy, they obviously knew a lot about medicine.Negus |ˈniːgəs|noun historicala ruler, or the supreme ruler, of Ethiopia.ORIGIN from Amharic n’gus ‘king’.The stethoscope: invented by Imhotep; Ancient Egypt.

 The “Father of Medicine” – “the first figure of a physician to stand out clearly from the mists of antiquity.”

As a physician, Imhotep is believed to have diagnosed and treated over 200 diseases, including tuberculosis, appendicitis, and gout. He also performed surgery and practiced dentistry. As the credited author of the Edwin Smith Papyrus in which more than 90 anatomical terms and 48 injuries are described, he is notable for being one of the first doctors in history to approach medical knowledge from a perspective void of magical overtones – a like-minded ancestor of Hippocrates, who would live some 2,200 years later. Today we are reduced to “Drug Dealer” by a system which asks, How to Make and Keep a Slave #PRISONINDUSTRYMake it illegal to do any and everything:Forged 2nd 13th Amendment to the Constitution declared that “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”Legally Signed by Emancipation Proclamation. It was the crowning achievement of his administration.1st 13th amendment : (Bill of Rights)  All persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom….
