ok, here is one to get out ahead on. If we allow them to start getting away
with stuff like this, before we know, we will be out in the cold. Here we
go, fokes, man your battle stations.    
 

I'm glad to be your humble and obedient servant,

Choose ye this day whom you will serve.  If Yahweh be Elohim, then serve
him, with all of your hart.  However, if bail be your master.  Then serve
him.  As for me, and my house.  We choose, to serve Yahweh!

The late Bishop Joe Patterson told a story long ago, when I was a small
child.  About Elijah, and the 450 false prophets of bail.  He said that
Elijah, stood, and told the false prophets to go on ahead, because they had
a much larger program.  He said that they had 450 participants, and he only
had one.  Elijah, also reminded them, that they had to drag their god up the
mountain side on an ox cart.  the man of Yahweh, also said, that his Elohim
would be there when he arrived.  He said mockingly,you go on ahead.  Heck, I
will even let you call your god first.  I'M going to take a nap, and when
you guys finish your foolishness, wake me up. Go ahead now, take your best
shot.
Bishop Joe O Patterson
A blessed memory

Subject: [tabi] Fwd: Inaccessible and non-compliant state of Florida
government websites



I got this from a friend who cares about equal access.  Please get the word
out about lack of access for people who are blind and deaf.  Only the
sighted and hearing can use some new sites being provided by the Department
of Health.  The management does not care.  We have a law but no one to
ensure accessiblity so state agencies are starting to ignore the law
totally.




Message starts here:

State agencies are required by Florida Statute [F.S. 282.601 - 282.606] to
provide web based electronic information in an accessible format for any web
content developed or purchased after June 1, 2006. 

But instead The Florida Department of Health spends thousands building
inaccessible flash based websites without the slightest thought about equal
access for users of assistive technology. If these sites were truly built
for the public then they would be available to all citizens of Florida...

Please let the Governor, the Secretary of Health, and the Attorney General
know how you feel about The Florida Department of Health ignoring you and
ignoring the law. Email them and demand that Florida Statutes be obeyed and
accessibility be provided for EVERY website! Make a difference by speaking
out!
Contact everyone on this list. Equal access is your legal right and state
agencies are required by law to be accessible!!! Feel free to threaten an
ADA lawsuit! Voice your frustration and leave no question about how you
feel!
