Sebelius Describes Federal Government As 'Our Federal Family' September 5, 2013 - 10:34 AM By Susan Jones
(CNSNews.com) - September is National Preparedness Month, and in a news release urging everyone to be mindful of potential terror attacks, natural disasters, and pandemics, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the federal government is ready to help:
"While our federal family is becoming better prepared to support the nation, we know that being truly resilient requires the whole community coming together," she said.
"Simply put: bystanders cant stand by. Weve seen countless times that bystanders are truly the first responders. They save lives. Each of us must be ready to help others when every minute counts."
Sebelius said being ready means being aware of potential risks, knowing where to turn for help, and being willing to help one's neighbors:
"While taking a first aid class or a CPR class is always helpful, we may not need formal training to save someones life or provide them with basic care they desperately need at that moment. Sometimes, we just need to be willing to help carry someone who is hurt to safety, provide comfort to someone who is frightened, or help someone find the medical care they need."
Several other Obama administration officials have used the phrase "federal family" in recent weeks.
At his swearing-in ceremony on Aug. 29, B. Todd Jones, director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, talked about the ATF agents who pitched in to help local law enforcement in Aurora, Newtown, Boston, and West Texas: "It's as close as you're going to get to blue-collar law enforcement in the federal family," he said.

Sebelius must be our old, crazy aunt.
The black sheep, no doubt.
Good grief is right!
Is that like a Mafia Family?
I’m filing for emancipation.
Yeah. “Family”, in the same context as it’s used by the mafia.
No, they worship Satan.
ever notice that this Fedbeast is presenting itself more and more as what the CHURCH is supposed to be?
now we can get all offended at that, yack about various conspiracy theories and isms and sniff, and then go our own private ways as before...
or we can wake up once more to the fact that whatever good the world in vain claims to do... GOD can do in spades!
by all means, starve the Fedbeast of glory...
and give GOD all the glory you possibly can!
who’s bigger? the Fedbeast? or GOD? try changing who you bow to and watch the miracles happen... and when they do, you’ll wonder why you ever went with Brand Z.
As in the Manson family...
And Biden is our crazy uncle.
Actually, it is like a mafia family. I’ve tried to warn people here about being careful about who they let do favors for them. Take favors from the mob and you get the trouble you ask for. Same thing goes with letting fedgov do favors for you. Don’t take the benefits if you don’t want strings to get attached later.
I think Feral Government would would be more fitting.
blessings sometimes take the form of material favors, however the ultimate point is what are the favors used to DO. the Fedbeast wants the favors to redound (now there’s a not very common word, and it’s not rebound which is what happens in basketball) to its glory, rather than to do good in the sight of some independent God.
by the way re your tag. a REAL optimist tells you how things can go in your favor too and give you a reason to cheer up!
Instead of yourself, God, and your family, Rats want the government to be your first source for anything.
...the old, crazy aunt who should NEVER have been allowed out of her locked room in the attic. Up there, all she could do, was to make faces out the window.
But down on the ground and out on the streets, she was snapped up immediately by the Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut, in order to give them credibility.
And their closest degree of elevation to respectability.
They aren’t including us in their “family.” Read what she said again. This is clearly all about US vs THEM, the ruling class, and the ruling class intends to win by raping us and bleeding us dry. They don’t give a crap about making our lives better.
