Having Some Fun with HHS “FAADS” – How Does U.S. Government Heal and Help Serve Humans? Let me count the ways (and costs)!

2000- 2009 and a research tool.  Pick a policy and track its recipients.  Pick a state, a grant type, a program, or a Congressional District, and investigate. 

 

PICK A POLICY — FROM WOMB TO TOMB, From Neonatal to Aging, AND ALMOST EVERYTHING INBETWEEN.  THERE”S GOT TO BE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE (POSSIBLY EVEN ME, IF I STOP RUNNING MY MOUTH TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS!)  


THERE’S HELP FOR ALMOST EVERY FACET OF LIFE, AND STUDIES/EXPERTS/INVESTIGATORS TOO.  AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE, AND ADMINISTRATORS.  THERE ARE DEMONSTRATORS AND EVALUATORS.  

IT’S LIKE MACY’S AT CHRISTMAS; IT’S LIKE WAL-MART ON JULY4TH WEEKEND, IT’S LIKE DEPARTMENT STORES ON LABOR DAY WEEKEND; IT’S LIKE AN AUTO AUCTION — YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHERE IT’S TAKING PLACE, AND QUALIFY, TO BID ON THE GOODS.  

 

AT $4.5 TRILLION (THAT’S ONE DECADE — BUT ALSO ONLY ONE FEDERAL AGENCY)

THERE’D BETTER BE!

 

Are we done yet?  Can we simplify somewhere?  Or is that unpatriotic?

 

When “Porn King Abducts Daughter after (Allegedly) Beating Mother to Death with Baseball Bat” is the headline, one tends to wonder about the policies that possibly made this a likelihood.  As with other incidents, a well-written news report (or three) show how entirely avoidable, one would think, this was.  

The part they don’t advertise at the beginning of a court process is that, after the order is issued, then comes enforcing it.  Which brings us back to the other supporting systems.

I have come to the conclusion that the first line of defense IS the family.  But if the families still aren’t healthy, after ALL these $$ spent teaching us how to do it, in a healthy manner, then a healthy attitude is to admit it.  “THIS  one was a poor choice…. and I don’t have whata it takes to stay here and (fill in the blank…..)

Another point that sometimes fails to surface til all the siblings in one generation are grown, hopefully, have procreated a time or two, or more, and THEN what?  Were they close, such that if one gets into an abusive relationship, others will move in and help?  Were they rich but BITTER and will they spend the last many years of the patriarch or matriarch’s (women do tend to live longer) life squabbling over the prior 4 decades and blaming each other, with the end goal, basically, an inheritance?   By the way, public servants are not immune to this, or someway more ETHICAL than the rest of us.  In a recent local race, BOTH contenders had some serious family skeletons relating to elder abuse — on both sides.  

Or, what about when a family decides it likes the ex better than its own?  The biological relative can be sunk.

 

Is Big Brother the Safety Net?  

Or is the Weight of the Nets strangling those who are supposed to

eat the fish it was built (ostensibly) to haul out, for food?  

Is Big Brother a bully, and hiding some assets, or private deals

How shall we find out, and why isn’t that phrase called “Sister, because

there are JUST as many of us in the population……

The POINT of this Post is the TOOLS — VOCABULARY DRILL.  This is some playtime at “http://www.usaspending.gov/faads.” (link to right, near the top of my blogroll).  This site is supplementary to the TAGGS site which I think I have driven home pretty well in other posts (dragging up those big charts).  

 

This site is more picturesque — you can search easily, get bar graphs, sort, select, and all kinds of neat data to pull out.  You can even go through ALL the recipients in your state, including individuals, down to the carwash in Texas, and people whose names you never heard before.

HERE are some summaries — all under the HHS, largest agency.

TOP 5 PROGRAMS

(below, I put out a long list of all the HHS programs, interactive.  The “93.” is part of the “CFDA” number, which is searchable.  Each program has an assigned “CFDA” number.  HOWEVER, certain Initiatives (FATHERHOOD, OK, guys?  Or “Violence Prevention”) may show up under more than one CFDA.  IN these cases, if you sniff a scent, you can follow an institution, a “principle investigator” or even a certain grant# — sometimes they switch the office they are issued under.   This is where bloodhound skills come in handy.  If you smell it, and the numbers are outrageously strange for some unheard of grant, start baying – –  and phoning!

Yesterday, some of us were a little disturbed by an unusual collaboration between two groups we knew whose agendas were opposed — directly — too each other.  Or so we had been led to believe.  I sniffed, I started to bark, and I discovered over $20 million (minimum) for some organization that barely has a web presence.  

One the patterns become clear (organizations are specifically set up to receive government funding for grants someone has proposed initiative for, or pushed policy through for) there are telltale marks.  For example, no private funding.  Or for example, a foundation KNOWN to be pro-neo-conservative or anti-feminist, shows up funding some organization that says “protesting violence” or “Help women!” in its title.  

In these cases, the title on the door (like family LAW system) is a detour, some mirrors and sparkle.  It gets government grants, but it doesn’t get the problem solved.  Judging by the headlines, which haven’t improved in certain categories, that I blog about.

If the problems were solved, the grants would go away.  

 

TOP 5 PROGRAMS RECEIVING ASSISTANCE

 93.778: Medical Assistance Program $1,691,582,016,604
 93.773: Medicare_Hospital Insurance $1,157,748,024,187

(TANF– relevant in these discussions; it relates to child SUPPORT

which relates to “Access Visitation” and Fatherhood programs (single parents need help – go after Dad —

Dad, on hearing this, goes after his children, or is gotten to do so, the ACTUAL purposee being (ostensibly) saving society $$ and helping children.  This not always how it pans out, but that’s the general concept — it’s for everyone’s good that the child support agency go after

the”noncustodial parent” for some money.  Where MOM gets left out is in the dealmaking process.  THat’s another post, though, or 15 of them.   No matter how you cut it, HHS is going to be paying, and also the DOJ, when it gets bloody, oir criminal.  Money for Welfare, Money for Child Support Enforcement, Money for “Supervised Visitation” when that “access visitation” is obviously too risky to enable with a straight conscience.  Then money for  — well you name it.  To me, I wonder why we fund both sides of the fence on some of these issues. . . . 

$163,303,114,665
 93.600: Head Start $60,933,448,601

 

 

NEXT TOP 5 AGENCIES providing assistance:

(not programs, but kind of “OPDIVS” within the HHS Dept.) 

 

 HHS – Health Care Financing Admin. (was Medicare and Medicaid Serv.)   HCFA $3,818,436,843,560
 HHS – Secy. of Health and Human Services  $344,667,509,115
 HHS – National Institutes of Health NIH $189,986,583,950
 HHS – Administration for Children and Families  ACF $108,151,718,743
 HHS – Health Resources and Services Administration HRSA $52,837,624,841

 

 

 

OK, FOLKS, QUIZ TIME . . . .

as we are talking hundreds of billions(and in one case, 3 Trillion). . .

 

How many of those 5 agencies above do you recognize?  (if less then half, well time to take a look!)

 

 

I’d estimate that most people may know NIH and what was formerly medicare and medicaid – those are common words.

If you’ve been visiting my blog, you are going to hear about Administration for Children and Families (ACF).  This is where a lot of our due process in the legal system is HIDING.  In fact, those $$ are just marching out the door with noble sounding names, headed off to grants whose abstracts could be found, from what you can learn from THEM, but the street-level consequences (or USES) of those $$, and whether they save, or compromise lives — is not exactly easy to find.  

This is where, I believe, “Fatherhood,” Healthy Marriage” “Access Visitation” “Abstinence Education” (say, whah???) and many, many m ore — see them below?, I made them  line up for roll call, all dressed in BLUE (hyperlinks)–  This is where some of your school music and art, homeless assistance, smaller classrooms, etc. — this is where they went.  For that, and the $20 million supplemental funding for the $100K ++ /year judges’ salaries, in my state.  And incarcerating and disbarring attorneys and others who investigate, like Mr. Fine did in the Los Angeles area.  These $$ WENT somewhere, they didn’t just evaporate.  Are people still driving cars in the neighborhood?  

Are courts still ordering people to mandatory counseling?  Well, someone must be doing it then. . . . )  After all, there are still high-conflict marriages to be made peaceful, at public expense. Has “PARENTAL ALIENATION” come back to life again, although Dr. Richard Gardner, whose baby it was, hasn’t ( to date)?  Well then, some people are promoting it…

 

Well, what are contenders #2 and 4 about, and up to?  What do they do?  Wouldn’t this be a good time in life to find out?

 HERE — if these were songs, would you know?   We all know — probably plenty — about Michael Jackson.  We know now, for example, at least according to him, how abusive his father was, and I saw on TV how his hair caught fire (25 years ago), possibly relating to the addiction to painkillers and much more.  We know that the women that treated herself as a surrogate mother for him, and human infants as Christmas presents, now wants her children back, bringing up some very interesting philosophical questions.

The charts of the largest United States Executive Agency Department (or so it seems), may not seem so immediate, and certainly less dramatic — except that  our ECONOMY is such.  Expenditures way outpacing Income.  WELL, that’s the time to look more closeely at expenditures.  And, contrary to popular opinion, if the IRS collected them, the public deserves to know what was done with this!  And not to just leave life to the “experts” even though obviously a lot of expertise, and many specializations ARE necessary to make things work.

I just have some SERIOUS, serious questions when the reigning FIELD of expertise appears to have such lofty titles like Child Development, Human Health, Social Services, and many other things.  

 

When I was a single mother, with work, and out of the battering relationships — and even out of the home in which it took place; in fact I made a REAL creative fresh start — I moved to a neighboring county, but still there was weekly contact with their father – – – I made a 100% geographic planned switch.  Someone got in there with bad advice, and within 3 months, i knoew this.  It took another 6 months to switch back to the original plan — and balance income with outgo.  This WAS something i had the knowhow to do, given my background.  As I look back on that “marriage,” the pattern is clear:  Transportation Down, Credit down, Bank account Down, Pregnant, Off work, Battering begins.  Now that’s a challenge.

AFTERWARDS, obviously transportation, credit, stable bank accounts and work are priorities, right?

So, here I am, restraining order on, adjusting lifestyle to make it work.  IT WORKS.  This upsets the abuser and a few new associates, and I am forced — on hearsay — not evidence — and through a court-appointed mediator, mandatory, who I can’t really confront, whose word appears to be similar to “expert witness,” and who I can’t sue for libel, etc., etc. — totally reverses this, and I have to back and try AGAIN what I already tried, consciously rejected as inappropriate for the children OR me, and this was the beginning of the long road back to Food Stamps.  I fought all the way down, snowballing knowledge on the way down, pulling out roots hanging out of the enbankment, and also CALLING for help.  These roots that slipped out of my hands were all the traditional measures that people THINK are there (women in particular) — unless they have some good NY Bronx sense to start with (see my VERY first post, I quote someone) — to know better.

 

I suggest we study the groups studying us (those who reside in the United States, among others….), and help heal this department that claims IT is helping the WHOLE U.S., that something has changed and that THIS time we’ll REALLY get it right – trust me!  

By “us” I mean, if you are not independently wealthy — meaning, per one financial “guru,” your ASSETS (not your employment, your ASSETS) are NOT producing more than you need to live on, per month — that’s you — such that if something happened to you like it did to me (like “fatherhood” issues in the machinery of the courts, plus membership in a family system that just doesn’t “get” that hitting pregnant women in front of a toddler, and continuing the process as they grow til she finally has to have one legally evicted, “sucks” and is a character indicator, as is the fact that no one figured out the possibility of the “legal eviction” [[Through restraining order plus kickout]] process 5 years earlier– if your income cannot handle being knocked out of the workforce because it’s not dependent on your employment, you are not independently wealthy.  

This could include having alternate means of housing, food, and clothing, etc.

When in doubt, if you aren’t setting policy, a general rule is that you are probably the target of one, or a dozen, studies, nationwide, or statewide.  PARTICULARLY if you and your “intimate partner” — or just one of you, in the case of a stalker — has called it quits.  

SO HERE ARE THE TOP 5 & 10, now that I got that sarcasm in there:  The “TOP 5” (Congressional Districts) and “TOP 10” Recipients, approximately the same states.  Below that, I’ll get into which programs to NOTICE, in re: family court matters  — at least a start.

PLUS LAW ENFORCEMENT HAD ALREADY FAILED THAT SITUATION. . . . AND MADE IT CLEAR THAT EARLIER THAT GENDER COUNTS MORE THAN FACTS…. $19,381,589,639

 

I HOPE this is as interesting as late-night TV, or clubbing (lest you pick up another Mr. Mitchell on a bad hair day), or working overtime to avoid foreclosure.  It’s a great search tool (see top of blog, and middle, and blogroll).  

 

BELOW< I italicize ones of some interest, to date, on Family Court Matters.  Others may also be of interest, but of what I blog on, these programs have already been identified as “players” in the due process thing . . . . and having been pushed with an agenda, possibly, that was not systematically made known to BOTH custodial and noncustodial parents at the time, and the general public, probably, EVER.  By now, I know approximately where to look, but it’s taken about a half year of fullo-time searching, and getting the hang of it.  I’m more a teacher (intuitive) than Researcher.  I can pull out “analytical” when it’s a problem to be solved (no shortage of them around here!), but it’s not the preferred mode.  A good part of what I do in adult life has been putting that “analytical” in balance with the other modes of thought — we need them both.  And if the country is about to be run by the “analysts” who are detached from the consequences of their bad policy or hired by the REAL emotional fundamentalists, well, then we ought to ANALYZE back, and then get some emotion behind doing something to stop it.  At least, “that’s my story and I’m sticking to it” til further evidence or insight.

93.597: Grants to States for Access and Visitation Programs

 

(I have already posted this — for California — , and we’re not done talking about this yet . . . . ..”Access and Visitation” sounds good in theory, but a MANDATE of these grants (I suppose to get more next year) is to demonstrate that MORE noncustodial “parents” (translation:  mostly fathers) get MORE time with their children, because, well, that’s good and right.

These are grants to kind of “jumpstart” the legal system where, say, EVIDENCE alone might not get the job done, or the low-income (or high-income) Dad might now have the knowhow to change that custody order, and on what basis can it be changed?  Because a federal program says it’s good to is why.    The MEANS then, to require this outcome, must per se undermine evidence and due process.  Otherwise, those would rule, and there’d be ORDER, not DISorder in the courts, as CA NOW Family Law page {{Correctly}} claims there is.  THis is where mediation, parenting plans, and supervised visitation come in.  Oh BOY what a burgeoning profession!!  

There are entitites — not running the courts, but the research exists — which verify the common sense that it’s hard to mediate with a batterer, either face to face, or behind close doors without a chance to shuttle back an opinion.  It’s not recommended. This is how many custody switches happen.  I’d been told a Mom could lose her children in the time it took to change a tired.  I experienced this, too.  How?  Under this philosophy and policy being pushed through the courts — without my knowledge beforehand.  I knew “wrong” but I didn’t know “why.”  Now I know WHY, and you can too.  There are reasons for the bill of Rights, and we need to understand how many entitites in the courts don’t care about them.
