Obama Admin. Says All Americans Must Have 'Healthy Housing'

"Under the broad banner of "health," the federal government not only is telling Americans what to eat, it's also telling us to make our homes safer.

This week, the Obama administration released a "bold new vision for addressing the nation's health and economic burdens caused by preventable hazards associated with the home."

Huge grants in housing.

So THIS promotion is what

So THIS promotion is what those mesothelioma television ads were for all these years. What a lead-up!

Mother Teresa wondered aloud, think of how many could live here.

Messes Clinton? During a White House tour w/ the then First Lady... over a decade ago, Mother Teresa asked innocently. Her question has gone w/o an official White House response. Alas, Misses C has perhaps forgotten.

I'll start paying attention

I'll start paying attention to what the govt has to say when it can actually balance a budget.

It seems I remember Safety Joe talking about Connecticut

(I think that's where he lived, maybe Mass.) and that where he lived the local (maybe state) had already passed some nonsense to where the local gov "had to" come into your home to "make sure" you were doing some "xyz" stuff like this article. OR ELSE! His hair was on fire and all I could come up with was the 3rd amendment. This was several years ago.

That's my whole point, how will the government make this housing assessment? Is it going to be like the Department of Social Services or HUD coming to do an on-site housing inspection?

The thoughts makes me want to puke.

And I say to Obama: all Americans must have a healthy government

So, why don't you guys disappear crawling into the HOLE you truly belong to, and give us some rest, ALREADY?

That'd be MUCH appreciated by all, I think.

More Agenda 21

ya think? I have recently moved to Arkansas and there was an article in the paper today about how the state is working out a deal with china to build a big pulp plant somewhere around Mena in what I suppose is our national forest land. The article went on to say how the Chinese want to use OUR forests because they need THEIR land for food production. Made me REALLY sick! Has anyone seen the beautiful forests in the southwestern parts of Arkansas? If not you had better hurry up if you ever want to because apparently Gov Beebe is going to let the damned Chinese trash them soon. Or so says the paper! Anyway, Obama is just looking for more ways to take our homes or charge more for them if you ask me. Saw this coming. THIS COUNTRY NEEDS AN ENEMA BIG TIME!

Pack your belongins, people

looks like we are all moving into the White house.

He's done so much to 'improve' the housing of 100's of 1000's

by locking them in prison for drug offenses.

Now *that's* healthy housing.

I'm sure it's great for their family's living situations too, when they lose an income. I'm sure that being poor has nothing to do with why the mold in the attic isn't dealt with. The only thing that type of person needs is a lecture about how they should spend more money at home depot to fix their living space, i.e. how to to be better with their money, from a government that's $16T in the red.

What a hypocritical a$$hole.

More regulations, fees, fines,

and more federal red tape jobs.

I saw this too and lifted notes from the article:

"....The healthy homes strategy sets five goals for reducing the number of substandard homes:
-- Establish healthy homes recommendations (homes should be dry, clean, pest-free, safe, contaminant-free, well-ventilated, and well-maintained and thermally controlled);
-- Encourage adoption of healthy homes recommendations (federal, state and local regulations);
-- Create and support training and workforce development to address health hazards in housing (train people for new jobs in green energy and construction);
-- Educate the public about healthy homes (advertising campaigns telling Americans how their homes ought to be)
-- Support research that advances healthy housing in a cost-effective manner (taxpayer-funded grants to study the problem)...."

...I simply cannot wait to see what 'qualifies' as "clean" and "well-maintained" eh?

Apparently.....

.....we are too stupid to know what qualifies. Only government folks, you know, those special people grown in those special fields the government owns, knows what's best.

More regulation is what keeps folks in their house. You see, the more in debt you are, the more you can spend. So that $100,000.00 house you bought, while making $27,00.00 a year, because you have a Right to a house, as everyone, needs some more spent on it. Reaching a million in debt for yourself is the goal. If you can beat that, you are well off.

This is all possible because there are people who make more than you.

The government will make sure those folks have your back.

Nice to see you

Have thought of you frequently and missed you.

Shucks G :)

Thanks for the warm thoughts, good to see you too. I just am trying to remain calm and don't have much to say anymore.
