    YOUR GOVERNMENT AT WORKSex predators getting federal grantsFlorida law loophole allows offenders to receive cash for education Posted: December 17, 200311:08 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com Sexual predators confined to mental-health facilities in Florida are receiving federal grants to take college courses. The taxpayer-funded tuition grants are allowed because the offenders are considered "residents," not "inmates," Fox News reports. A 1994 federal law prohibits "inmates" from getting financial aid. In Florida, jurors are allowed to confine the worst sexual predators to mental-health facilities rather than prisons. As such, they are able to take advantage of their status as "residents" and qualify to...

    The prospect of millions of Mexicans receiving United States Social Security checks is moving closer to reality. The Gannett News Service reports U.S. and Mexican officials are discussing a "totalization" agreement that would transfer hundreds of millions of dollars in payments south of the border. The plan would allow documented and undocumented immigrants to return home but still collect U.S. benefits. WorldNetDaily reported the idea to merge both countries' Social Security systems was pushed late last year by Mexican President Vincente Fox as payback from President George W. Bush for failing to secure major new immigration reforms beneficial to Mexico...

    It's rare to hear a politician say his goal is to get a crowd of more than 500 people worked up. But Jim Coletta said he wasn't a politician on Wednesday night. He said he was, and is, a civic activist. The Collier County commissioner and other county officials are enraged by the new flood maps proposed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. They say the maps aren't based on historical data and are inaccurate, such as incorrect names for city roads and streets. It's rare to hear a politician say his goal is to get a crowd of more...
  • Socialism by a landslide

    If put to a vote, Americans would likely reject socialism by a substantial majority. Those same Americans, however, are voting by a substantial majority to allow governments to acquire more and more land and to tighten the controls on the private lands that remain. Socialism, classically defined, is "government ownership and/or control of the sources of production." Land is the source of all production. A vote for acquiring more private land by government, or tightening government's control of the remaining private land, is a vote for socialism in America. Of course, it's not called socialism; it's called "protecting the environment."...

    Just as we almost had amnesty for 3 million illegal Mexicans foisted upon us "on the sly" by a little rider attached to a piece of innocuous legislation, so, too, we might get the U.N.-sponsored global tax "on the sly." After all, it would only be 7/l0 of l percent of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – which is reminiscent of how, in l9l4, the federal income tax began as an itsy-bitsy tax and then grew to gargantuan proportions. Pattern Set The pattern has been set and the handwriting is on the wall. U.S. Ambassador John Negroponte signed the Monterrey...
