Getting High on the Taxpayers Dime
Morgan Brittany | Mar 10, 2014
You knew it was coming.With the legalization of pot in Colorado and other states, it has been discovered that over the past few months, purchases of marijuana in pot dispensaries have been paid for with cash from welfare benefits.
The purchase of marijuana is strictly a cash business so it was obvious that ATM machines should be made available inside the dispensaries for easy access to money.That’s fine except that there is no distinction between a credit/debit card and an EBT card.

Molon Labe: Connecticut’s Terrifying Start Of Gun Confiscation.
Rachel Alexander | Mar 10, 2014
The latest gun control law in Connecticut has crossed a very frightening line. A standoff has been created between the government and tens of thousands of gun owners now considered felons. It marks the beginning of an Orwellian new phase. Gun owners saw it coming, as evidenced by their recent adoption in recent years of the defiant expression “molon labe.” The phrase originated from Spartan General-King Leonidas, who reportedly responded with “Come and get them!” to Persian Emperor Xerxes’ demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. The Spartans fought valiantly, but were ultimately defeated. With the prequel to the Hollywood bestselling movie 300 just released last week, Americans are now even more aware of the phrase.

Elizabeth Warren's Crusade to Nationalize Payday Lending Squeezes Native American Tribes
Recently, two seemingly unrelated things happened in the so-called “payday lending” world. First, Senator Elizabeth Warren began trumpeting a plan to offer short-term lending and banking services through the United States Postal Service. Then Native American Tribes sued New York's Superintendent of Financial Services for illegally cutting them off from offering their own online lending services. Since claiming the mantle of Native American, it’s not surprising that Warren hasn’t gone on record supporting Ben Lawsky’s persecution of the tribes.

AMAC - The Association of Mature American Citizens is now over 1,000,000 Members Strong!
On January 1, 2014, ObamaCare cut nearly $22 billion from Medicare home health care over four years. That means an estimated 3.5 million poor and ill homebound senior citizens woke up on New Year's Day to discover that ObamaCare had slashed funding for their home health care program.
Last year, Medicare home health services were delivered to approximately 3.5 million Medicare beneficiaries. According to the federal government's own data, these seniors are older, poorer and sicker than the Medicare beneficiary population as whole. Many of these seniors also reside in rural communities, where home health care is especially important because other sources of treatment are often located many miles away.
But wait, there's more: according to the Obama Administration's own statistics, "approximately 40 percent" of all providers of home health services face net losses as a result of this Medicare cut. Put more plainly, 4-in-10 of all the providers on whom homebound seniors depend face the threat of bankruptcy and closure as a result of ObamaCare. That's 5,000 home health care companies and 500,000 jobs wiped out in order to pay for ObamaCare.
Of course, this is merely one example of how ObamaCare is hurting American citizens, affecting American businesses and impacting American jobs. AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens, is leading the charge to rescind this reprehensible attack on America's seniors and small businesses. We have always believed that ObamaCare was a destructive and costly monstrosity - and we support a full repeal.
As the fastest growing alternative to groups like AARP, we aim to champion the interests of mature Americans, seniors and prospective retirees. We believe in religious freedom, free enterprise and support common sense solutions to our Nation's largest challenges.
Our nation's economic growth and our citizens' future prosperity should not be threatened from bad policies emanating from Washington DC.
Join the AMAC Army today and spread the word to friends, family and neighbors - help us fight government overreach and unaccountable Federal spending in the nation's Capital with greater strength in numbers!
AMAC - Fighting for you to make America strong!
