- "Brevard County to Cut Back Hours for Some Part-Time Employees," by Bob Opsahl and Melonie Holt, WFTV 9, 23 July 2013 (hyperlink omitted):
Brevard County has over 300 part-time workers, many of whom are in the library and parks systems.
While officials don't necessarily want to reduce hours for those employees, they'll be forced to unless the county wants to pay for full-time health benefits.
Librarians had been ordered by the American Library Association [ALA] to push ObamaCare, that is until it cut back on the severity of its message to make it appear optional after librarian push back, as only I reported, and the self-arrogated censorship police voluntarily agreed to suppress President Obama's speech to #ALA2013 and the video has not yet been made available:
- "Librarians Refuse ALA Obamacare Push; Wanted: Video of President Obama Speech at ALA Conference; Lenny Kravitz's Message for Librarians," by Dan Kleinman, SafeLibraries, 5 July 2013.
ObamaCare is a larger invasion of privacy than the National Security Agency [NSA] scandal:
- "Obamacare Data Hub a 'Honey Pot' for ID Thieves, Warn Critics," by Paul Bedard, The Washington Examiner, 22 July 2013.
- "Obamacare's Branch of the NSA; Community Organizers Will Use a Federal Data Hub to Sign Up People for Subsidies — and Even Ballots," by John Fund, National Review Online, 22 July 2013.
- "The NSA Programs and the Federal Data Hub," by Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review Online, 22 July 2013.
Although ObamaCare is a worse invader of privacy than the NSA, ALA is exhorting people to oppose NSA on privacy grounds:
- "Ask Your Representative to Vote YES on Amash Amendment," by Action Alert, American Library Association, 23 July 2013:
On Wednesday, July 24, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the Defense Appropriations Bill (H.R. 2397).
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has introduced an amendment to the bill that would stop funding for the NSA's warrantless surveillance programs.
Please ask your Representative to vote YES on the Amash amendment. This amendment is a strong vote against the NSA's warrantless surveillance programs and bulk metadata collection.

- "Act Now: Support the Amash Amendment to Stop Funding NSA Surveillance," by Choose Privacy Week, American Library Association, 23 July 2013. [In full disclosure, Choose Privacy Week has a single major donor who paid for and enabled the work the ALA does to give the impression ALA cares about privacy while promoting Open Society Institute messages the public would not otherwise accept. That person is George Soros. See "Know the ALA" for details. The Choose Privacy Week site is basically a wholly owned subsidiary of the Open Society Institute, though it is not promoted as such.]

As to Brevard County, its library already bowed down to the ALA's demand to allow pornography into its public libraries:
- "NCAC Pushes Porn on Libraries; Fifty Shades of Grey Propaganda: Brevard Buckles, Harford Holds," by Dan Kleinman, SafeLibraries, 13 June 2012.
Now it is bowing to the ALA again, this time on ObamaCare:
- "Local Libraries To Help Feds in ObamaCare Outreach," by Charles Parker, Brevard Times, 4 July 2013.
So librarian hours are being shrunk by ObamaCare, the so-named Affordable Care Act. Not for Brevard County librarians it's not affordable. They supported ALA's porn push and more recently ALA's ObamaCare push, and now they may lose work and medical benefits as a direct result. Sad to say, but what goes around comes around.
