SSB 5459 passed

Well, the bill has passed – which I just do not understand at all.  Whoever voted for this does not take into consideration the health and safety of all of our citizens with developmental disabilities nor do they care about increased costs for fewer services.

The one good thing about this being done is that I don’t have to hear Senator Adam Kline say “Quite simply” and then spout off his same rhetoric that he says every time he is at the microphone.   This is not a “quite simply” matter at hand.  It is beyond Senator Kline’s comprehension how far and wide the ramifications of his bill will go.  Many will have their services reduced and the cost of care will increase.

This is not a cost savings measure nor a streamlining measure.  What is really behind this bill?  I’d love to know becuause it’s definately not about safe care for our citizens.

    I think you give Sen. Kline too much credit. I think he knows exactly the ramifications of the bill he crafted and then craftily gutted and left to sit looking innocuous until it suited him to resurrect and reconstitute it for a “hearing” with just 20 minutes notice only a couple of days before the end of the extended session. That several legislators noted that they had had no time to read it made no difference. This was not democratic process. It was just a slimey trick to slide legislation past legislators who were calculated to be too tired and hurried to notice the gaping holes in the bill’s logic or to read the updated fiscal reports.

    If you appreciate the substitution of trickery for conscientious democratic process, Adam Kline is your man.


    • Yes, it all comes back to “The Big Lie Theory” and some priciples of propaganda:
      1. Never allow the public to cool off
      2. Never admit fault or wrong
      3 .Never concede that there may be some good in your enemy
      4. Never leave room for alternatives
      5. Concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame them for everything that goes wrong
      6. People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one
      7. If you repeat it frequently enough, people will sooner or later believe it.

      So my take is that Adam Kline is a great propanda artist and/or a stool pigeon for the vendors who stand to profit big time from becoming community vendors in this new project. Either way, I don’t believe it is moral or ethical.

      “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”
      Joseph Goebbels quotes

      If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

      Joseph Goebbels

      If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed”

    I will be printing it off for future reference; such a concise little lesson in psychopathic manipulation!

    This has been the modis operedus of ARC for as many years as I can remember.

    But, really, it can be applied to any message, even the truth.t If we had had some professional guidance to keep us from violating it with all the corrections we were forced to make, with a little more discilpline, we might have made it work for us, too.
