In the April 2008 Independence Chapter of ABATE of Florida Newsletter on page 8 under president’s report by Jim Haley
Jimmy reported that the President of Polk County Chapter wants to propose an Amendment to The State By-laws Article IV, regarding background checks on any prospective member who may be disruptive to the orderly operations of the corporation. Jim K spoke about what had been discussed at the state meeting regarding this issue. Definition of a background was any information is public knowledge and was easily accessible, and does not require a fee. Jim K stated that the board was divided on this issue.
It should be noted that Jim Kimberlin is the Independence Chapter State Delegate

Well now if you count failing to file lobbyist reports as required by law or making $100,000.00 misstatements about funds received and causing Chaos in state meetings by Roberts Rules of Order to stop dissension then you gonna have to start cleaning house at the very TOP.
But then again fascism has been used in the past as a way to create order and stop dissension.
With head of The U.S. Department of Transportations Mary Peters as pimp in proxy for the helmet companies. Former Nixon Creep Rosenker of the NTSB massaging the prostates of MRF and Abate of Florida and NCOM and for God knows what reason the American Automobile Association having taken up arms against motorcyclists (then again they are the "automobile" association) not to mention various and sundry other groups that apparently find it in their best interest to stick their nose in your rights we expect that every once in awhile we will see an article such as we did in last weeks Tallahassee Democrat. Some highlights of which with my response and a link to the whole article can be found here:
Tallahassee Democrat looks as if it is endorsing helmets
As with most articles of this nature it presented one side of the issue. Which I have always had a difficult time associating with the word "reporting". Somewhere I heard reporting had to to do with, rather than just parroting whatever ever fell out of the the teletype, "reporters" going out and getting the "facts" then presenting "both" sides of the issue??? Unique Idea huh???
So in that way we are limited in our exposure to the issues by the way in which they a presented. We are also limited to what is really going on because we only see it from the perspective of our own little corner of the world. So we see a little blurb in the local paper now and again and we thing........well thats it.
WELL THAT AIN'T IT! Just take a little click on this link and just look at (you do not have to read them all) the number of just some of the articles (compiled by Bruce from bruce and Rays Forum) pushing helmets that have been published in the past few days about helmets. My bet is you will do like I did. Go, "damnnnnnnnn................. ". Puts in a different perspective doesn't it.Add to Technorati Favorites
