And they think we’re crazy to stand up for our rights?

April 4, 2009

Just read a most disturbing story, and thought I’d give it out to you all.

When I did the video on Baby P, and told people to be aware of what our government was about to do, in the name of child protection, I had many who resented my apparent insensitivity to the issue.

Well, you get what you ask for if you don’t stand up to the system…

Now before you say anything about the gay couple issue, that is not the point! I want you to read the whole article. and understand how the two boys are in care and are about to be adopted away from their mother and grandparents.

Family in 11th-hour legal battle to halt brothers’ adoption by gay couple

The brothers have been in foster care for two years. Social workers began to monitor their mother when she suffered post-natal depression after the birth of her first son though there is no suggestion that she has harmed or neglected the children.

The boys were placed on the ‘at risk’ register four years later after her husband hit her.
Social workers claimed the 38-year-old mother had allowed them to be ’emotionally harmed’ because one of the boys witnessed his father physically abusing her.

The couple later separated and the mother took out an injunction to stop her estranged husband coming to the family home. However, she relented and agreed to let him see his sons. When this was discovered, social workers took the children into care in March 2007.

She says: ‘The boys kept saying they missed their father. I made a mistake by letting him back to see them. But that does not mean I should lose my sons for ever.’

BTW, this isn’t the first time this has happened. Here we have a case from January

“How can you tell a mother that when she’s never going to see her children again?”

The five-year-old boy and his four-year-old sister were being cared for by their grandparents because their mother, a recovering heroin addict, was not considered capable.

But social workers stepped in to remove the children from their care because of concerns about their age, despite the grandmother being just 46 and the grandfather 59.

Their 26-year-old mother, who cannot be be named to protect the identity of her children, has condemned the decision and says she wants her children to be raised by a “mum and dad”.

This article has a number of other stories of similar cases.

Peace

        Wow Mike! I found your youtube channel by accident and fell in love with it because you have a sublime form of smarts.I wish I was smart but as Joni Mitchell said “I don’t know life at all”. Is there trouble brewing? I wonder what the future holds?

    How much more do they suffer being taken into care? That must be worse for them. As if that doesn’t cause any trauma. It’s too sad.

    That Grandmother story is ridiculous. They are better off with strangers than their Grandparents? Who would Social Workers rather look after their own children? Grandma or strangers?

    There are always extreme circumstances but it sounds like those kids have already had enough trauma.

    Don’t a high percentage of children going into care end up being abused or turn to prostitution? I’m sure I read that somewhere.

    I might be different but I think the Social workers have more power than they should have ever been given. There are terrible shootings in this country (USA). Insurance companies sell you a policy and if your friends house burns we tell them that they should have bought a policy instead of being part of a community and helping one another. The greed and the moneylust will be the death of us all. There is an effort to turn us all into slaves to the world banks and right now Geitner is hiding his fraudulent friends. I wanted Obama kick these Banksters and warmongers and economic stripminers when I elected him. I think votes don’t work. Geitner needs the highest job to hide his treason and now we can let the world bank control the natural resources and human “resources”. We will be monitored and have all rights stripped away and become serfs for the machine. You will lose your children and they will control all aspects of communications and freedoms to keep the “order” They don’t want to see another 1776 from the parallel that we always understood. The man owns the golden rule.
    It’s like the movie Brazil or something. I don’t mind gay people and that’s one thing, these Kids need to go to their grandparents first. I wish someone would round up these social workers and force them into prison. Laws are being taken over by fascist governments. I think the world is going to be fascist for one minute and turn into a social dictatorship. I prefere social democracy because I am not to smart and I get tired of working and never getting any security in as much as a stable house or health security. I am poor and everyone else takes everything and I get the crumbs.

    I know the banksters payed for the big Obama campaign shows but why did he have to broker the lives of the world in order to get into the office for his ambitions. The deal was that if he gets into office he will give all the criminals cover and jobs. That’s a bad deal! Maybe he can give them a bonus and flip this mess upside down. Then kick out the bad guys and expose them as financial terrorists. Or is this some kind of disaster capitalism so that they can bring in some kind of new powers so that we will gladly join the “Matrix”. Was this mess Planned like many people feel about 9/11? Is the matrix some kind of endless war and endless slavery? Where a few globalist bankers dictate the laws and scrape every bit of ore and resource from the earth. Will we make great Pets for aliens? are we banker lapdogs? Are we too be so impoverished that we can’t donate money to the red cross when the poor people need it during a tsunami? I want to donate money to “third world” countries but I can’t afford rent. I want people to be happy and healthy but this oil bubble economy seems to have produced too many mouths to feed? we all seem to hate each other. The tv is fluff and military training. We lock up the undisirables instead of making jobs and safety nets. We have lobbyists and special interest groups that elect our leaders and all of our leaders are connected to some scandle or some corporation. We love to pay for expensive medicine and war machines. We pollute our air and water. We hoard. we don’t have time to enjoy life and family. The family weakens. We let religionists keep us in war. We never learn. I want to be a Native american. I am tired of being the cowboy. We only have one planet and we expirement with this delicate gift. Is there any hope. Is this fear? or is fear and hope selfishness. I want to get out of myself and get out of this matrix. I want to sit atop a mountain and get away with a small tribe. The land is all taken. The money is all in the hands of a few. Usury is our system. We were taught to hate the brown people. We are afraid of change. I want an army of people that will lock up the 5 families that control us. This can’t happen though because we are asleep. The change we want is not what they want and what is “they”? I can’t believe we aren’t free. will the dust settle like it always does? We aren’t lit to pop are we? If we allow ourselves to become factory workers in a nike shoe store so we can make shoes for the Czars we will surely be stuck. The resources have been unevenly divided in this world. The government taxes the heck out of us for the wars and the slow DMV workers. We payed insurance to the government so that they could get us into this mess. I thought my money would have gone a long way. Is there a camp in the desert that I can decouple from the madness that is this place. I wonder what kind of technology is being hidden from us. What is being hidden from us? Is life plain and complicated by the complicators. Are we safe? I’m really not affraid of terrorists! I am not affraid of gutting this system. I have seen apocyliptic movies for years. Can we continue to feed these environments with dwindling water supplies. Do we have enough oil underground to continue heavy duty farming. Do we need to continue to grow in order to prosper if we are taxing the resources. Can we build underground cave dwellings? Do we really need to start ww3? I think that that is what someone would like to do. Get china russia and america and india fighting over the middle east and thats what might happen right? Is there some kind of race war going on? What the heck is going on. These buildings seem so large. It seems like we only belong inside of them. It seems like I only belong inside myself. Did I not create myself a temple. Did I not build myself the shrine. If not what the heck is going on. Is this not a party.
