It would be good if you would contribute some reader comments to the article, which provided some excellent information to the public about the Tea Party movement and local activities:

"President" Barack Hussein Obama said Saturday, as he waited until Congress went on recess to make.... 15 recess appointments, to bypass the Senate. Some of the candidates had bipartisan opposition. Is this what "Advise and Consent" is all about folks? I don't think so.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Saturday that Obama's move is "another episode of choosing a partisan path despite bipartisan…Continue
I am watching Sarah's speech live as I write this. The scene is jammed with people. There was a miles long backup of cars waiting.
Sarah is barely hanging on to the pages of her speech in the strong desert winds in Searchlight NV. A page actually blew away-- I hope it was the one with the McCain (McLame) endorsement on it!
No teleprompter, but she has handwritten notes-- actually…Continue

I handed out April 15 Ventura Tax Day Tea Party flyers at the big boaters' swap meet in Channel Islands Harbor today.
Channel Islands Harbor
The bad news is that about 25% of the people refused them. I would have thought that boaters would be a solid potential Tea Party consitutency. But, the good news is that 75% took them very enthusiastically. Some even thanked me for…Continue

Warning: some offensive languge in here, but for good reason. There are accusations made against Tea Party members-- no specific members and no substantiation. There is a highly inflammatory headline on one of the McClatchy websites, with no supporting evidence. While it is conceivable that…Continue

I remember a ballad popular in the late 50's or early 60's-- "16 Tons," about a coal miner with a hard dirty, low-paying job, with little hope, getting deeper and deeper in debt and misery.

I doubt if this will stop it, but the GOP is forcing Dem's to jump through hoops.
Hmm, still catching up on emails, after being out distributing Tea Party flyers and going to a GOP meeting. So, hotheads are threatening Dem "lawmakers," huh? As much as I condemn violence, or even threats of violence, the Dem legislators' indignation and trembling fear make me smile. Admit it- you feel the same way, right?…

A former CBO head not in the clutches of Obama/Pelosi/Reid has a slightly different take on Obamacare ....
.. or just contribute ditrectly to your favorite Conservative candidate.
Just a footnote: A liberal associate looked at this web site and asked: 'If the Tea Party is supposed to be non-partisan, why isn't it praising any Democrats?," to which I replied, "send me a list of real Conservative Democrats and I'll publish it here for you." Still waiting. And waiting ....
By the way, I do not assume that Republicans are all Conservative. Au contraire. The GOP is…Continue

"The math behind this is ugly. Medicare's long-term liabilities now total $89 trillion, according to the Government Accountability Office. Based on projected deficits, the just-passed health reform will take that to $136 trillion."
Just to put that in perspective:
- Annual federal budget $3.6 TRILLION
- U.S. GDP $13-14 TRILLION
- Estimated world GDP $55 trillion
Folks, we are…Continue
