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.”

Goodell defends NFL's 2-game suspension of Rice (The Associated Press)
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell defended himself Friday against criticism that he was too lenient in suspending Ray Rice two games for his ''horrible mistake.'' ''We just can't make up the discipline,'' Goodell said. Richie Incognito, Mike Pouncey and John Jerry were all implicated in the episode, which prompted tackle Jonathan Martin to quit the team.

Blaine Gabbert learning 49ers system (The Associated Press)
Although Blaine Gabbert may be fairly new in the locker room, he's had plenty of time to familiarize himself with the San Francisco 49ers' playbook. The latest addition to the quarterback group comes with solid credentials, though without much NFL success despite starting 27 games for the Jacksonville Jaguars the past three years. ''The biggest thing is a lot of talent on the offensive side of the ball,'' Gabbert said Friday. ''That makes the quarterback's job easy.'' Gabbert, drafted in the first round, the 10th pick overall out of Missouri, of the 2011 draft was handed the job in Jacksonville without much preparation and without much of an offensive line.

Goodell defends Ray Rice sanction (AFP)
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell insisted Friday that his two-game suspension of Ravens running back Ray Rice for domestic abuse was an appropriate penalty. The suspension was widely criticized as too lenient, but Goodell, speaking on the eve of Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, said he had taken Rice's prior sterling reputation into consideration, along with the Baltimore player's comprehensive apology for his behavior. "Domestic violence is not acceptable," Goodell said. Rice and Janay Palmer, who is now his wife, had an altercation in an Atlantic City casino elevator in February and security video posted online by TMZ.com showed Rice afterwards lifting a motionless Palmer, then his fiancee, out of the elevator and onto the floor.

NFL roundup: Goodell defends suspension of Rice (The SportsXchange)
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell defended the league's two-game suspension of Ray Rice on Friday, commenting publicly for the first time since his controversial decision last week created a firestorm on social media. Goodell talked to several reporters at the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the enshrinement weekend in Canton, Ohio. Goodell said that the length of the ban is "consistent" with other punishments issued by the league. "We have a very firm policy that domestic violence is not acceptable in the NFL, and there are consequences for that," Goodell said.

Goodell defends Rice punishment deemed 'light' by critics (Reuters)
(Reuters) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday defended the league's decision to suspend Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice two games for violating the league's personal conduct policy in a domestic abuse incident. Goodell's ruling last Thursday caused a harsh backlash from critics who thought he let Rice off lightly compared to harsher penalties for doping and on-field violations by other players. Three U.S. senators expressed their dismay in a letter to Goodell that the punishment did not send a strong enough message against domestic violence. We have very firm policy that domestic violence is not acceptable here in the NFL and there will be consequences for that," Goodell told reporters in Canton, Ohio, site of Saturday's Hall of Fame inductions.

Goodell defends two-game suspension of Rice (The SportsXchange)
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell defended the league's two-game suspension of Ray Rice on Friday, commenting publicly for the first time since his controversial decision last week created a firestorm on social media and elicited a response Friday from the U.S. Senate. "We have a very firm policy that domestic violence is not acceptable in the NFL, and there are consequences for that," Goodell said. U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) wrote to Goodell on Friday asking for a harsher punishment. We are also writing to the Baltimore Ravens to request that they impose additional discipline under their own authority, but it is imperative that the NFL itself makes clear that this conduct is truly unacceptable."

Browns' Gordon meets with NFL on appeal (The Associated Press)
As his teammates sweated through another training camp practice, Josh Gordon was in a New York office building where his career - and Cleveland's season - were in jeopardy. Gordon met Friday with NFL officials to appeal a possible indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Gordon's attorney, Maurice Suh, and other members of his legal team were expected to argue that Gordon tested positive for marijuana because of secondhand smoke, a defense they planned to augment with witnesses. No decision on Gordon is expected for several days, and the Browns are keeping their fingers crossed the outcome will be favorable.
