SEIU Education and Support Fund Inc Received Money via the Stimulus? Why?

The “Inc” leads one to believe there is another issue entirely but:

So did the American Taxpayers pay for this asinine stunt? Where are the Stimulus Funds as the record still shows:

Jobs Summary: None as of yet. (Total jobs reported: 0)

Project Status: Not Started

This award’s data was last updated on Sep. 6, 2009?

It doesn’t look as though any education is ongoing or has truly occurred! Unless Thug101 was up for grading in the “training”!

This project was for Worker Health and Safety Training Cooperative Agreement? It is described as:

Award Description: To integrate the Project’s hazardous materials emergency training from its Parent Grant into existing workforce development training programs for healthcare. This will be accomplished through collaboration with the Healthcare Career Advancement Program (H-CAP), a decade-long partnership of SEIU Local Unions and healthcare employers. The Supplemental Project will use existing classes and class materials from the Parent Grant. The Project will access the target population through the unique conduit provided to SEIU ESF by the national network of local unions of the Service Employees International Union. It will build on its existing and strong relationship with one consortium partner from the Parent Grant, the SEIU1199 Training Fund in New York while expanding into new geographic areas for training healthcare workers through the H-CAP. The second aim of this proposal is to accelerate the purchase of replacement equipment and supplies needed to prepare for an anticipated demand for the Project?s hazardous materials emergency training for state departments of transportation and facilities for highway maintenance crews that clean and maintain roads, highways, shoulders, bridges and roadsides and maintain vehicles and for waste water treatment and distribution workers. The four states (Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire and New York) in which the Parent Program provides training have been allocated more than one billion dollars for transportation and water-related construction projects funded under the ARRA and are expected to create at least 10,000 new construction jobs.  Over the 13 month period of this Supplemental, the Project proposes to hire one full-time and one half-time staff, to train 932 healthcare workers and 160 state highway and water workers and add an additional 12 worker-trainers to our existing network under the Parent Grant. The Project will operate as a consortium, led by the SEIU ESF.

Green, the Pacific Northwest, Dead Zones, and Snow Jobs

As I am visiting Washington State (one of my many old stomping grounds) this next week or so… I have to ponder on this article in the local paper from last night which has a link online as well: Ocean Study: Future far more blue than green Deterioration: Dead zones off NW coast a sign of serious health decline

I would hesitate to guess that some aren’t falling for the “Green Agenda” even in the culturally environmental friendly Pacific Northwest. Definitely more snow jobs occurring up here than are falling over the Cascades or Mount Rainier! Still the liberal shills appear to be flaming the Mean “Green” Cap and Trade Machine. The Green is the the money involved as the earth is always cleansing herself through: earthquakes, fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, mudslides and all other “natural disasters”. A bill or law signed will not prevent any one of those events, however it will line the pockets of many a politician who have placed their bets on Carbon Credits wheel of misfortune.

Since Climategate has been released, and inaccuracies in procedures have been validated, one would tend to believe that the United States Global Change Research Program (another government department) would have disbanded and saved the American Citizens and Taxpayers some overspent Greenbacks! You will just adore the USGCRP’s What’s New Page. With all of the associated and interconnected government agencies emblems floating at the bottom of any page on the USGCRP’s site, one just knows that warm and fuzzy feeling that Global Warming is just around the corner and these agencies under Obamatron orders will be there immediately to assist the public at large. Hmm?

Call a friend who lives in or around the coast of the Gulf of Mexico… they’ll set you straight on that rapid response time to a natural or “MAN-made” disaster by the Obama administration’s agencies. Don’t hold your breath for truth and/or anything of consequence!

Volunteer Citizens = David — Versus — DCMP Paid Organizers = Goliath

What is The Tea Party? It is what you put into it in effort – and the knowledge you garner from other participants is amazing. It is a Patriotic American Citizen’s best reference on the truth of DC shenanigans at all levels of government. It is a rag tag band of volunteers that numbers in the millions.

Democratic Campaign Management Program or DCMP has paid organizers and advertises freely and continuously. The DCMP makes it all about the money rather than all about the American Dream.

Remember this November at the polls the liberal Democrats are paying through the nose to sway public opinion. Don’t be tooled or fooled by the DCMP, America.

Would Somebody Be Hedging Theirs Bets and Money on Amnesty? Democrats? Executive Orders? Treason?

So the Democrats are hedging all of their bets on Obama sliding Amnesty through an Executive Order. Showing your double dealing dirty hand by parading your marching orders… Progressives?
Looks like Patriots need to search Craigslist daily. With all the money grabs that the Progressives have made, you would think that a professional website would be a need and not a want. Since this is decidedly anti-Constitutional, anti-American, counter-culture, and bordering on treason with traitorous activity, it’s no wonder it’s not widely announced ~ but advertised on a free posting network under “Non-Profit”. Don’t you think the Democrats have grabbed enough money yet? Will you stop at nothing as you stoop to broaden your voting base?
