URGENT ACTION ALERT – March 2nd

S.B. 458 is on the Senate Calendar

for a full Senate Vote Monday, March 5th!

ACTION – Call your senator before noon Monday, March 5th!  Go online for contact numbers or call the Secretary of the Senate at 404 656-5040 and ask to be connected to your senator’s office.

Message for your senator: Please vote YES on S.B. 458.

Reasons You Should Call

  1. 15,359 foreign students enrolled in Georgia colleges and universities for the 2010-2011 school year, 4.4 percent increase over the previous year.
  2. S.B. 458 strengthens current laws concerning illegal aliens. It is, simply, a logical way to (a) clarify state law aimed at illegal immigration, a method to (b) streamline the eligibility process for public benefits, especially college and university enrollment, as well as (c) increase national and state security to combat the wrongful issuance of foreign passports.  In addition, it would reinforce 2006 laws written to (d) protect our publicly funded college and Tech School classroom seats for real immigrants and U.S. citizens.
  3. Illegal aliens rallied against it at the Capitol. This week’s rally call reminded the illegal aliens that S.B. 458 (a) would remove the authority of the Chancellor and Board of Regents to make student acceptance policy and (b) prohibit students from entering college if they cannot produce legal status documents.  Also, it reminded them that (c) illegal aliens currently enrolled and paying out-of-state tuition could not re-enroll.

The rally/press invitation directed them to www.acluga.org for the ACLU analysis of S.B. 458 and http://www.usg.edu/chancellor/speeches for “the excellent opposition comments of the University System Chancellor.”

Questions: Do illegal alien students now attending college plan to return to their native country when they graduate or do they plan to stay in the U. S. illegally?

Note: Someone should tell them that a college diploma will not change their citizenship status.

URGENT ACTION ALERT – Sunday, Feb 26th

Urgent Action Needed before 1:00 p.m. Monday

H.B. 630 is a culture change that must be defeated.

H.B. 630 Sexual Orientation & Gender-Bender Legislation
Scheduled for Representative Jacob’s Judiciary Subcommittee Meeting
Monday, February 27, 2012, 1:00 – 3: 00 p.m., CLOB Room 406

H.B. 630 would result in affirmative action in government jobs for almost two dozen sexual orientations and gender identities listed in the American Psychiatric Association and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.  H.B. 630 would legalize sex acts that are now crimes in Georgia.

  •  “Gender” does not have the same meaning as “sex.”  “Sex” identifies males and females.  Gender identity implies rejection of and deviation from natural sexual identity.
  • H.B. 630 would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the current list of protected civil rights classes, although the bill does not define “sexual orientation” or “gender identity.”  So, two categories of sexual behaviors (including but not limited to voyeurism [Peeping Toms], exhibitionism [flashers], pedophilia, necrophilia, bestiality) would be protected as civil rights and would not be prosecuted as sex crimes.
  • Webster’s Dictionary defines “gender-bender” as a person who assumes the appearance and demeanor of the opposite sex, i.e. transvestites and transsexuals.
  • States with laws providing protection for variant gender identities allow anyone claiming transgender status to use any public rest room or other public facility anywhere, including churches and religious establishments, unless local law allows religious exemptions.
  • H.B. 630 lists nine state and local government laws that would be amended to require workforce “balance” (affirmative action) in hiring, firing, training, compensation and promotion of applicants and employees based on sexual orientation and gender identity.  Such “balance” would be required in sensitive jobs including (but not limited to) public daycare, public schools, group homes, orphanages, foster care, juvenile detention, etc.

ACTION – OPPOSE.  Ask the following representatives to vote NO on H.B. 630.
Representatives Jacobs, Ch.    404 656-0152            Representative L. O’Neal     404 656-5052
Representative Roger Bruce    404 656-0314            Representative J. Powell      404 656-7856
Representative Elly Dobbs       404 656-7859            Representative A. Welch     404 656-0109
Representative Stacey Evans   404 656-6372            Representative T. Weldon   404 656-0152
Representative Ed Lindsey       404 656-5024

URGENT ACTION ALERT – Monday, Feb 20th

Urgent Action Needed before 1:00 p.m. Tuesday

H.B. 630 Sexual Orientation & Gender-Bender Legislation

Scheduled for Representative Lane’s Judiciary Subcommittee Meeting
Tuesday, February 21, 2012, 1:00 p.m., State Capitol Room 132

H.B. 630 would require affirmative action in government jobs for almost two dozen sexual orientations and gender identities listed in the American Psychiatric Association and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.  Also, it would legalize many sex acts that have always been crimes in Georgia and throughout the country.

  • H.B. 630 gives “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” civil rights status without defining the terms.  So, two undefined behavioral groups, that include Peeping Toms, flashers, pedophiles and involvement in bestiality, necrophilia, etc., would get civil rights status and could avoid prosecution for sex crimes that could be blamed on gender ID.
  • Webster’s Dictionary defines “gender-bender” as a person who assumes the appearance and demeanor of the opposite sex, i.e. transvestites and transsexuals.
  • States with laws accommodating gender identity allow anyone claiming transgender status to use any public rest room or other public facility anywhere, including churches and religious establishments, unless local law allows religious exemptions.
  • H.B. 630 affects at least nine state and local government employment laws in Georgia.  State and local governments would have to hire, fire, train, compensate and promote to attain workforce “balance” based on aberrant sexual behavior for jobs in public daycare, public schools, group homes, orphanages, foster care, juvenile detention, etc.
  • H.B. 630 requires a culture change that must be defeated.

ACTION – Ask the following committee to vote NO on H.B. 630.
Representative Lane, Ch.      404 656-5087
Representative Allison                656-0188
Representative Crawford             656-0265
Representative Hatfield               656-0109

Representative McKillip               656-0177
Representative Nix                     656-0177
Representative Oliver                  656-0265
Representative Stephenson           656-0126

CALL GEORGIA’S U.S. SENATORS, ASKING THEM TO VOTE YES ON THE FY 2012 FUNDING BILL TO STOP FUNDING THE UN AGENDA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, which includes such projects as the installation of smart meters.

THE FY 2012 FUNDING BILL PASSED THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE MAY VOTE ON IT TODAY.  IT DEFUNDS GRANTS FOR IMPLEMENTING THIS UN AGENDA.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

Sustainable Development is a UN initiative, a jobs killer and it destroys infrastructure – refusing to build roads, tearing down dams and the like.

Success on this issue will strike a huge blow against Sustainable Development, which is the UN Agenda 21, that was never authorized by Congress.

Message from Tom DeWeese, President, American Policy Center:

The Senate must maintain the House restrictions on the sustainability planning grants and the caps on planning expenses now called for in the Fiscal Year spending bill. America cannot afford these grants. The cuts will save billions of dollars and keep special interests out of your community’s planning decisions. Tell them you oppose Sustainable Development.

Make the calls and counter the impact of the APA, one of the nation’s most powerful forces behind Sustainable Development. Passage of FY 2012 (as passed the House) will turn the tide away from top down control and soviet-style government – and towards freedom!

If you have a chance, call your Representative in the House and thank them for standing firm against this Sustainable Development monster. And ask them to continue to stand firm if the final bill goes to a conference committee. Defund Sustainable Development and strike a blow for fiscal sanity and freedom.

Thank you for reading,
