Is anyone attending a Tea Party on April 15th
Posted: 4/19/2010 8:19:25 AM
The first Tea Party was in October 2008 to protest the first bailout, under the Bush administration. This is about BIG GOVERNMENT.

There were protest signs of Bush with a Hitler mushtache. The hatred thrown at him was on a much larger scale than we see at Obama. Bush took it in stride as oppose to Obama who gets testy and makes snide remarks.

There are some Obama bashing signs at most Tea Party rallies but it is less than one percent. The rest of the signs are policy oriented.The MSM makes a point to find the ugly signs to discredit the movement because they don't want to accept the fact that the group makes sense.

Personally, I am not a Palin fan. I think she has a long way to go to be strong candidate but I admire the way she has delt with all the unfair crap that has been slung her way.

Skoochie, Your president wants you to believe he lowered taxes but in truth he has only taken the shovel from his predecessors, yes I mean plural, traded it in for a backhoe and dug the hole deeper and faster.
He has not lowered my taxes. I had a deduction for $171 that was called a "make work deduction." Make Work, are they serious!?
Last year when the $400 "tax break" was offered to my staff I reminded them that it would be considered income on their 2009 taxes. So they opted to take an $5 extra per paycheck out on FICA so they wouldn't owe it now. Thanks but no thanks.
This mess in DC has been going on for decades and We the People let it happen. Now We must stop it.
Obama and Pelosi (Reid is a lap dog compared to Pelosi the Pit bull) have every intention of causing as much damage as possible before November.
Right now all we can do is keep up the open opposition, via the rallies, letters, emails and walking into their office, to keep the message and yes, THE ANGER, alive until we can vote as many of them out as possible.
I say anger because most of the Tea Party Patriots are quiet, hard working people who have found no other way than to leave their lives and take this stand. If you were to ask them, the majority would say they would rather be home doing their own thing than to be committing so much time and their own money to stop a government that is completely out of control. This has been forced upon us by politicians who have no idea what the consequences of their policies do the working population of this country.
Another thing that totally pi$$e$ me off is that they generally exempt themselves from the laws they write for us.
I bought pizza for my staff and family who helped me clean up from the Easter earthquake but it isn't tax deductible because the government figures we have to eat anyway. BUT when Pelosi kept the House working overtime to get their version of Obamacare passed, she spent hundreds on food for her staff AT OUR EXPENSE.


Here is a link to a video I sent in to Freedomworks, one of the sponsors on the 9/12/09 March. It placed in the top 4.

There isn't a Tea Party in my area this year. I would drive to the one in Chula Vista so I could help support my candidate Nick Popaditch, but there is a group of 3rd and 4th grade learning challenged kids counting on me to rehearse a play with them. They are the first special needs children in the school's history to perform a play. They are much more important on this day.



This past year of being a Tea Party Patriot has been at times exhilarating and hurtful.
I am proud to say that when I look back on this time in our history, I didn't just sit around complaining. I fought with all my heart for what I believe to be the values of the country that I love.

Is it possible to get a straight answer out of this Dem slime?
Posted: 3/25/2010 7:55:07 AM
Blues,
I listen to NPR, read the WSJ (hard copy) NYTimes, MSNnews and anything else that catches my eye online, I watch CSPAN, Chris Matthews until he starts spewing on the camera, and Fox.

I have said many times, all news media have an agenda. I try to get a variety of opinions and make up my own mind.
I do not believe this administration is going in a direction I want to go in.

The government already takes land. They call it imminent domain.

In a previous post someone said, we are forced to buy insurance from a private entity, but Biden had it right when he said, "We own the insurance companies."

I was at the 912 Tea Party March on DC. Depending on who did the reporting, there were an estimated 1,000 (ABC) to 2.4 million (announced during the rally) Americans present. No matter what the number, there was not a single distrubance or arrest. There were people of every race gathered to send a common message:
LESS GOVERNMENT & NO ON HEALTHCARE.

My favorite sign was "No matter what this sign says, you will say its racist."

Hey Blues,
I watched plenty of CSPAN where it was just the politicians talking and there were plenty of ideas coming from the Republicans and plenty of NO's coming from the Democrats.
As they go through the reconsiliation the Democrats will continue to say NO. They want to own this and they will.

I find it interesting that there are plenty of Democrats who will say no they don't want this plan for themselves including Obama.

we also know we need to speak up and let these people in Washington know how displeased we are with how they have conducted themselves with ignoring our voice in a position that is suppose to work for the people, not against us.


Since fall of 2008 with the first stimulus under Bush, I have been writing,emailing, faxing, sending videos and attending Tea Parties. Now I am volunteering for a conservative candidate who I hope will unseat my Democratic representative this November.

I don't complain about something I am not willing to work to change.

It is disgusting to listen to the liberals say they are for the people.

I have applied for a job that will give me benefits and hopefully make it possible for me to give my staffer health ins.
So if I get the job, I will, in effect have 2 full time jobs.
Thanks Nancy, Bob, Diane, Barbara, and all the other dems who think you know what is best for me.

I watched that program on the History Channel and thought it was interesting and presented in a pretty neutral manner.
Then I attempted to watch one on another channel that was clearly pro global warming. When the Van Jones sound bite came on I went elsewhere.
Last week I saw "The Book of Eli," I thought it was an entertaining movie with a strong cast. But one thing struck me.
In all post-apocalyptic movies they have an endless suppy of bullets for semi-automatic weapons.
My question is; If the land is reduced to its most basic form, where does the ammo for contemorary weapons come from? The time period for the movie was 30 years after "the flash."
It would seem to me that you would want a collection of weapons that use a ball and powder.

As for what would I do: Well there are about 100 questions that have to be answered. But assuming my sons and closest friends are still alive and the Colorado river is still delivering water to the Imperial Valley and I can get it, I would stay here and defend my property.
But if I was alone I would attempt to make my way east where I know people, assuming the are still alive.

I do think that if an enemy of the US wanted to cause serious damage, they would hit the Hoover Dam.

Easier to ask for forgiveness, than permission.


I worked on a downtown events committee with a guy who thought this was the only way to opperate. I was forever cleaning up or doing damage control for his actions.

When I go into a project I want to be proud of a job well done not making appologies. However, he is still on the committee and I am looonnnngggg gone.
Maybe the City officials like that attitude also.

In a music conversation with my sons last night I was reminded of the amazing covers of Beatles songs in the movie musical "Across the Univerase."
"I Want to Hold Your Hand" is a particular standout.

Mz Taken,
IMHO Rockola is impersonating the Beatles not bringing their own style of music to the songs. That said, I have seen them perform and it was a fun show.

Speaking of the Beatles, I was on vacation in Puerto Penasco, Mexico many years ago and the band in the hotel bar only sang Beatles songs and then only the chorus! At first I thought I had has way too much libation..lol

Yes I do. A few years back I took 3 fiftheen year old boys to a Mark & Brian a summer event. The name of it was a take off on Farm Aid and Woodstock, it was Farmstock or something like that.
In the early part of the day leading up to the actual concert Davaid Lee Roth was lead singer for a tribute band to Van Halen. I thought, how sad to be doing a tribute to your former self. The band was good but they were limited to songs the band made while Roth was a member.

Whitney has a beautiful voice and range but I would not rate her version of "I Will Always Love You," above Dolly's, especially when she sang it in Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
I prefer the artist to simply hold the note and not bombard me with all that, "Ieee Ieee Ieeee IIIIIIII will always love you."

I loved Rosanne's very early comedy and her tv show but some things are...er...better done behind closed doors...lol

Often the first time I hear a song and fall in love with it, I think it is the orginial version only to learn later there were several before. Then sometimes I hear a new version of a favorite song and think "that is the way that song should be sung."

What is your favorite version of songs you love

Here are a few of mine

Eva Cassity's "Songbird" over Christe McVee's

David Alan Coe's "If I Were A Carpenter," over any other

Cheap Trick's " I Want You To Want Me," over Dwight Yocum (what was he thinking!")

David Bowie & Bing Crosby version of "Little Drummer Boy," over any other

Match -

I am reminded that Obama had little to no interaction with the military when he became Commander-in-chief. The first time my son saw him salute a soldier as he came off the helicopter said, "What a whimpya$$ salute!" He has since gotten better and has had to be more involved on a personal level with the military than I'm sure he wants to.
I didn't hear him deliver the Ft Hood speach but reading the news story with parts of it in it, I felt that it was a speach taylored to him and that perhaps he is growing into the position.

Don't get me wrong! I'm not going soft on him, I still don't like his policies.
AND I still don't want Michele Obama to make military families her pet project. But if he comes to apprecitate the sacrafice our military makes just a little bit better, that is a good thing.

The msm is so delusional as to think that if they don't acknowlege the reality of how dangerous our world is, then it won't be. That if we are all politically correct and make a bigger deal out of Earth Day than Veteran's Day, the world will be a happy place.
They did not want to hear what Obama was really saying during the campaign and now they don't want to see how seriously his administration has weakened our national security.

Kumbaya, ya'll.

It's good to reflect on our blessings:

After being basically homeless for 17 months, because of a fire, I have been in my new home for a year.

Getting lots of outside projects done

Took sevearl awesome trips this year

Rode a Segway around Coronado Island

My store is doing well

My older son bought his first home and has enough roommates that they pay the mortgage!

I have a group of family and friends that I know I can count on

I am strong and healthy and content with who I am

Coolest thing - A friend in Maryland took me on a motorcycle ride to Annapolis last month and was impressed when I didn't freak out because he purposely scraped the foot rests in a tight curve.

What is/was your dream?
Posted: 10/22/2009 9:03:09 PM
I have had many dreams and passions over the years and a lot of them have come true to varying degrees.

I love to act. So I dress up in character and visit schools performing for hundreds of kids each year. I won't win any awards but sometimes in the grocery store little kids will point at me and tell their parents, "She is the booklady"

I love to sing and fortunately for the other cars on the road, my windows are always rolled up!

In 2006 my dream was to not go out of business and here it is almost the end of 2009 and I am still opening my doors every day and about to celebrate 12 years.

I love to travel and over the last 15 years have had the opportunity to see much of the US.

I hope to leave the store on my terms and be healthy enough and have enough money to travel more extensively.

Frankly I blame Republicans too for not addressing these issues decades ago. We all paid the price for their inaction.


I saw a piece on CSPAN a few weeks back where 4 Republicans were in a press conference and they said that they have been putting heathcare reform bills up for consideration since 1995 but the Dems have always shut them down. Polictics as usual.

I'm not sure we can get enough dems and reps out of Washington in 2010 and 2012 to truly make a difference.
I'm afraid that the third party candidates that are cropping up won't have enough support from diehard republicans to get them elected.

The Republicans have put many good ideas into HR3400 but the Dems are ignoring it and anything else the Republicans have to say.

I think their ultimate goal is to make health care a complete mess and so expensive that people will have to go into the public option.
