UNION DUES COLLECTED FROM MEDICAID BENEFITS
By Brujo Blanco

In Michigan the SEIU, which is a union that represents government employees, has been collecting $30.00 per month from people who take care of adult patients in their homes. These home caretakers are the family members of the patients and they do not receive compensation for taking care of these patients. Michigan has allowed this to occur based on the premise that government employees have a contract to provide such services and if a parent or parents decide to take care of an adult patient in their home then they are government employees and must pay dues. Instead of them paying dues out of pocket the money is taken from the coffers of Medicaid. This money is then taken and provided to the Democrats so they can elect their candidates.

You have read this rant correctly. Government funds are taken from the government coffers and they end up in the coffers of a Union. This has been identified as being OK in the eyes of the court. Gee I wonder if that judge was appointed by a Democrat or a Republican.

In this day and age of alleged “affordable health care” we cannot afford to have our money put into the coffers of anyone. This is a non government organization receiving government funds for services not provided. In this instance we have a union placing a tax on government.

Let us think about this for a while. How about the Volunteer Firefighters throughout our country? If there are paid and Volunteer outfits and the paid pay dues why not charge the Volunteers dues on top of it?

This situation gives one political party a serious financial advantage over another. It is not surprising in that the Democrats have been using union thugs as storm troopers to intimidate the “opposition.”

Ravens Rice receives two-game suspension

Smith plans to meet soon with Commissioner Goodell (The Associated Press)
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith expects to sit down with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ''in the near future'' to discuss any potential suspension for his off-field issues. Smith was sentenced last Friday to serve three years of probation and to spend 11 days with a work crew after he pleaded no contest to drunken driving and weapons charges. Smith said he hasn't had time to begin the work yet, and will do so as his time permits. Of the ruling, Smith said he is ''glad how it worked out.'' He didn't want to guess whether he would face a suspension from the league, and said he is unsure whether Ravens running back Ray Rice's two-game penalty Thursday for his offseason arrest for domestic violence provides any indication.

National Football League roundup (Reuters)
(The Sports Xchange) - Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for the first two games of the regular season by the NFL after his offseason arrest on an assault charge stemming from an incident with his fiancee. He is eligible to be reinstated Sept. 12, meaning Rice will miss key home games against division rivals - the season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals and a Week 2 tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. Bernard Pierce is expected to start in Rice's absence. The Atlanta Falcons agreed to terms with Roddy White on a four-year contract extension that runs through the 2018 season and could set the wide receiver up to finish his career with the franchise that drafted him in the first round in 2005.

Chargers' Rivers squarely focused on playoff run (The SportsXchange)
Year Two of Camp McCoy has arrived at Chargers Park, and quarterback Philip Rivers might just embrace a repeat of Year One. The Chargers opened training camp on Thursday, their second under coach Mike McCoy, and what does Rivers do for an encore? McCoy's up-tempo offensive approach was among the reasons Rivers had a phenomenal 2013 season. "I think's it's to try and win more than nine games and find a way to reach your ultimate goal," Rivers said.

Ravens' Rice suspended over assault incident (AFP)
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice avoided jail time in his off-season arrest on an assault charge, but was Thursday suspended two games by the NFL over the incident. Rice was arrested in February and charged with simple assault-domestic violence after an incident involving then-fiancee Janay Palmer at a casino in Atlantic City. Surveillance video posted online by TMZ.com showed Rice lifting a motionless Palmer out of an elevator and onto a hallway floor.
