Encroaching Government

In yet another attempt to constrict, restrict, and further diminish our fundamental God-granted rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, another piece of (previously discarded) legislation is finding itself being fast-tracked through Congress, having already passed the House and now sitting in the Senate awaiting rubber-stamp approval:

H.R. 20 - "Melanie Blocker Stokes Mom's Opportunity to Access Health, Education, Research, and Support for Postpartum Depression Act' or the `Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act'"

Congress is opening the door ever wider for power- (and money-) hungry Child Protective Services agencies across the country to legally kidnap even more children from their parents (without the benefit of due process of law - after all, parental rights is a civil issue and Thank Heavens For Clear And Convincing Rules, Can I Get An AMEN!), under the guise of "providing services" for mothers and "[ensuring] the well-being of the mother and family and the future development of the infant."

For good measure, they are simultaneously sticking a few more coins in the Big Pharma slot machine and waiting for the big jackpot payout.

After dealing extensively with the local CPS in the past, I can state there is no government agency more out of control nor power mad than they are.

I wa once accused of "contributing to the command hallucinations of a 14 year old to commit suicide by listening to music derogatroy to women."

No one bothered to view my taste in music or review my music collection, which consists of music from Benny Goodman to the late 1980's and a few from the early 1990's and much in between.

Never mind the 14 year old loved RAP music and I didn't.

Since I was already separated from their Mom and in the process of getting a divorce, I let that one slide. But the previous 8 years I was married to her Mom, it was a constant exchange with CPS over unproved allegations.

I even told them to take hte brats and put them anywhere, but they refused. That was when I told them to "get off my back" as I had already raised two girls to adulthood and who were both married and successful in life, neither having ever gotten into any trouble.

I then presented them with a copy of Washington State Law on child abuse which directly contradicted their claims, as I was once recommended to do by a Deputy Sheriff.

The 14 year-old ended up getting pregnant and having a child out of wedlock about a year after we split with the father "no longer in the picture."

One of CPS's prouder moments, I'm sure.

You don't want to get me started on the bullshit I've put up with out of CPS (and the "Friend of the Court" all the way up to the Juvenile and Circuit courts) for the past 3 years since we got custody of my stepdaughters, the bullshit that continues, the bullshit I know will never end.

Their abuses against us are now being addressed by the State Division on Deaf and Hard of Hearing and will soon be on their way to the County Prosecutor, state AG, and the Lansing DHHS offices.

I understand, Angie. One has to go through it with them to understand it.

I suggest getting copies of your state laws on abuse.

CPS here did not like that I showed them that spanking is entirely legal in Washington when they were telling people it was illegal.

As the Deputy Sheriff told me, they like to make up their own laws to force people to follow.
