"Dirty Secret No. 1 in Obamacare
by Chuck Norris
Source TownHall.com

"Health care reforms are turning into health care revolts. Americans are turning up the heat on congressmen in town hall meetings across the U.S.

While watching these political hot August nights, I decided to research the reasons so many are opposed to Obamacare to separate the facts from the fantasy. What I discovered is that there are indeed dirty little secrets buried deep within the 1,000-plus page health care bill.

Dirty secret No. 1 in Obamacare is about the government's coming into homes and usurping parental rights over child care and development.

It's outlined in sections 440 and 1904 of the House bill (Page 838), under the heading "home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children." The programs (provided via grants to states) would educate parents on child behavior and parenting skills.

The bill says that the government agents, "well-trained and competent staff," would "provide parents with knowledge of age-appropriate child development in cognitive, language, social, emotional, and motor domains ... modeling, consulting, and coaching on parenting practices," and "skills to interact with their child to enhance age-appropriate development."

Are you kidding me?! With whose parental principles and values? Their own? Certain experts'? From what field and theory of childhood development? As if there are one-size-fits-all parenting techniques! Do we really believe they would contextualize and personalize every form of parenting in their education, or would they merely universally indoctrinate with their own?

Are we to assume the state's mediators would understand every parent's social or religious core values on parenting? Or would they teach some secular-progressive and religiously neutered version of parental values and wisdom? And if they were to consult and coach those who expect babies, would they ever decide circumstances to be not beneficial for the children and encourage abortions?

One government rebuttal is that this program would be "voluntary." Is that right? Does that imply that this agency would just sit back passively until some parent needing parenting skills said, "I don't think I'll call my parents, priest or friends or read a plethora of books, but I'll go down to the local government offices"? To the contrary, the bill points to specific targeted groups and problems, on Page 840: The state "shall identify and prioritize serving communities that are in high need of such services, especially communities with a high proportion of low-income families."

Are we further to conclude by those words that low-income families know less about parenting? Are middle- and upper-class parents really better parents? Less neglectful of their children? Less needful of parental help and training? Is this "prioritized" training not a biased, discriminatory and even prejudicial stereotype and generalization that has no place in federal government, law or practice?

Bottom line: Is all this what you want or expect in a universal health care bill being rushed through Congress? Do you want government agents coming into your home and telling you how to parent your children? When did government health care turn into government child care?

Government needs less of a role in running our children's lives and more of a role in supporting parents' decisions for their children. Children belong to their parents, not the government. And the parents ought to have the right -- and government support -- to parent them without the fed's mandates, education or intervention in our homes.

Kids are very important to my wife, Gena, and me. That's why we've spent the past 17 years developing our nonprofit KICKSTART program in public schools in Texas. It builds up their self-esteem and teaches them respect and discipline. Of course, whether or not they participate in the program is their and their parents' choice.

How contrary is Obamacare's home intrusion and indoctrination family services, in which state agents prioritize houses to enter and enforce their universal values and principles upon the hearts and minds of families across America?

Government's real motives and rationale are quite simple, though rarely, if ever, stated. If one wants to control the future ebbs and flows of a country, one must have command over future generations. That is done by seizing parental and educational power, legislating preferred educational methods and materials, and limiting private educational options. It is so simple that any socialist can understand it. As Josef Stalin once stated, "Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed."

Before so-called universal health care turns into universal hell care, write or call your representative today and protest his voting Obamacare into law. Remind him that what is needed in Washington is a truly bipartisan group that is allowed an ample amount of time to work on a compromise health care law that wouldn't raise taxes (for anyone), regulate personal medical choices, ration health care or restrict American citizens."

This is going to fall along the same lines as DSS intervention in your life regarding child safety.
Search DSS gestapo and you will find articles where DSS has seized children for no apparent reason. Once they come in your life they are hell to get out. They come in and seize children and some never get to return to their parents.
Here is just one

Thanks for posting this Konane - yet another frightening prospect. It provides a clear window into the souls of the people writing this garbage. The soul of an fringe liberal, that is.

The nuts have taken over the asylum, and the country is in revolt. Those Code Pink people and anti-war protesters are a puny annoyance compared to the masses of outraged regular folks who are stirring throughout the country.

Thanks JAP!! My first thoughts is are they going to fast track ACORN members for this task, call them trained, qualified????

We've had similar horror stories about DFCS here where kids have been removed. Additionally worse horror stories about case workers not doing their jobs and kids ending up dead due to their dereliction of duty.

Thanks Todd!!! Definitely has an atmosphere of the 60's as far as how it feels. 60's was about freedom, individual choices hence the non-establishment thrust of that era.

Pesky internets is letting the plebs actually read the bills (which indicates a failing in the education system, too; plebs are supposed to be illiterate, by now).
Quickly - More bread! More circus!

Chuck Norris is a great guy and writer. I hope he addresses more parts of the Obamacare. It's part of their agenda to destroy the family. Did you hear about the kid that got bit by a neighborhood dog? Child Protective Services went in and removed all 5 children from the home. They also wanted the baby yet to be born so the father has sent his pregnant wife into hiding. I forget what state this is in. I can't imagine the nightmare of having children today with what they are doing.
Insane control freaks want to micro manage every part of our lives. In England they now have cameras in people's HOMES (right out of the 1984 George Orwell novel) to monitor that children are eating their meals, doing their home work and going to bed on time!!!!

Thanks TigerAngel!! Control freaks like to micro-manage other people's lives because they don't want to take a look inside their own. Pure cop-out.

As a society we cannot tolerate a govt that would pull babies from mother's arms. Govt doesn't have any say in the matter. We must stop being afraid of them. These child-stealers should be surrounded by so many neighbors that they are unable to physically move. And when the cops come, the neighbors should be on their cell phones calling everyone they know to come help surround the police until there are 10,000 linked bodies between the child and the would-be abductors.

The only problem is that the neighbors have all been trained to hate each other so there is no cooperation to do anything much more than putting the garbage out on the proper day.

Thanks Rick!!! I hope and pray we're coming back together as a nation instead of being afraid or hating just because we've swallowed the brainwashing.

Too late konane, there are quite a lot on this website that have been brainwashed. They will never admit it though.
