Comment: When there are Republicans introducing legislation to decriminalize child prostitution, to promote euthanasia and microchip citizens as in the State of Georgia, you can understand why the Patriots Groups and Tea Party organizations are steadily growing. It appears we have more and more politicians (not statesmen and stateswomen) who are bought. And since they have been purchased, they will not listen to reason.
We have today legislation for sale. Lobbyists and state agencies are embedded in legislation to see to it that they receive more Federal and State funding of taxpayer dollars.
When you stop to think that today, more people than ever are against abortion, yet at the same time Planned Parenthood is expanding it's business due to the $300 million-plus federal dollars annually, it mirrors what is happening in American culture.
We need leaders who will stand for the truth; leaders who will shoot straight and who understand this hour of darkness and peril. We must stop electing blind leaders of the blind who can be procured as workers of iniquity.
A Fourth Bill Introduced To De-Criminalize Child Prostitution
Up until last week, 3 bills had been introduced in the Georgia legislature to decriminalize child prostitution. HB 582 was introduced by Representative Wendell Willard. The bill is in Representative Willard's Judiciary Committee. SB 304 was introduced by Senator Renee Unterman and now Senator Unterman has introduced a substitute bill for SB 304 with new language that incorporates a larger definition of sexual exploitation, such as prostitution, masturbation for hire, or sexually explicit conduct in visual or print medium. The substitute bill uses new code section language that defines the underage person as an "unruly child". Also in the substitute, is the child's eligibility for victim compensation funds. From where will that money come and who will actually benefit?
The substitute bill for SB 304 is written differently from the original bill. It has the same goal, but is more misleading and more harmful to the child and parent. To remove the consequences of child prostitution or by refusing to teach a child to bear the burden of one's actions through discipline, is to throw the child to the wolves, who today are lurking everywhere to make a buck off the backs of children. Why are Americans so prone today to exploit children for profit? Why is the innocence of children no longer precious to us? Why will we not fight to protect our children?
Take the new free, online game called "My-Minx", which allows girls as young as five to role-play as prostitutes. "My-Minx" (www.My-Minx.com) is considered an online fashion game for girls and dress-up game for style icons." Players create an avatar - an online representative that flirts, shops, develops her career, builds a wardrobe, picks up lovers and "clients" at an online cocktail bar. World Net Daily, posted February 2, 2010 by Drew Zahn
Girls as young as five or younger, if they have computer knowledge, can immediately trade in online points to "purchase" for their avatar lingerie, nipple tassels, condoms and "anti-baby" pills among other items, and much more, and with several unprintable options.
Just like the bills targeted in this article, this online game encourages girls as young as five to believe they don't have to think about morals and that any kind of behavior will not only be tolerated, but accepted.
Now we have another bill, HB 1256, sponsored by Representatives Manning, Gardner and Lindsey. This bill also has been introduced to decriminalize child prostitution. However, HB 1256 designates that "a minor younger than 16 years of age found by law enforcement authorities committing an act that would otherwise be an offense...should be taken to the county department of family and children services with jurisdiction in the county where the acts were committed."
The bill continues to say that the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) shall take appropriate steps to contact the parents or legal guardian of the minor. This does not mean that the child will be given over to his or her parents or that parents have any rights. DFCS has the power to determine what is in the "best interest of the child," and if DFCS makes a negative decision about the child's parents, which they almost always do, then DFCS will place the child under the control of the State and in foster care.
If you are looking for a recipe for disaster, this is it! It is a well-known fact that children are safer in their own home, even though not perfect, than in state foster care. Many children are raped and abused in foster care. Let me say that again. Many children are raped and abused in foster care. Children are also, intentionally medicated on drugs for which there is funding with taxpayer dollars.
Child Protective Services (CPS) also known as Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) in Georgia is a protected empire, built on taking children and separating families for profit.
For legislators to propose that these children caught up in sexual practices should be carried to DFCS is indicative of the blind leading the blind. No child who comes out of the DFCS system is ever whole again. Most all are scarred for life.
Today, the State is at war with families. Why? Because of control and financial benefits. Children are seized unnecessarily from their parents due to federal aid. A policy created in 1974, entitled The Adoption and Safe Families Act, offers financial incentives to the states that increase their adoption numbers. To receive the adoption incentives or bonuses, local CPS must have more children. They must have merchandise that sell.
This law has caused untold misery and suffering for thousands and thousands of children. Because of it we have a generation of legal orphans, who probably become the young victim's of prostitution and sexual abuse today.
Parents are victimized by the system that make a profit for holding children longer and bonuses for not returning children to their parents. This should be considered child abuse and abuse of power.
Oftentimes, poor parents are targeted to loose their children because they do not have the where-with-all to hire an attorney and fight the system. However, CPS has redefined "poor" to mean "psychologically inferior". Therefore, it is in the so-called "best interest" of the child to be removed from the home. "Best interest" of course, has been redefined at the child's expense.
HB 582 and HB 1256 and the substitute bill for SB 304 are bad pieces of legislation. They should be defeated immediately.
