If you click on http://cfc.news8.net/news8/shows/newstalk/index.cfm and go to the second link under the small screen you will see my interview on Tuesday on NewsTalk Ch 8. We discussed the history of the tea party movement, what the movement wants, the recent accusations of racism and some hard questions about finances that I was not really ready for. Apparently my nervousness did NOT come though, thank…
Just joined because I am appalled at the media trying to use racism to squash dissenting voices! I am an African American and I don't agree with a lot of what the president and the dems are doing! I am an independent voter! No one is above criticism! Continue
I am sick and tired of the left labeling us Americans, terrorists every time they feel threatened in any way. I have a God given right to exercise my vocal chords in protest to this horrendous bill, a bill that the majority of us never wanted! This is Congressman Clyburn of South Carolina saying we are the terrorists:
The only thing I want from our government is to protect us from the REAL terrorists, you know the ones that are training in…
I am a physician and want to do something effective with the little free time I have.
Jumped on a plan at the last minute from my main office in Fla to make the 16 Mar Code Red.
I am working from a relatives home every night from 9pm to 7 am in Ashburn Va. covering Emergency Room consults. Need a few hrs of sleep each day ..... but am trying to figure out whether I should go back to my main office in Fla now or stay up to the vote.
Summary: OBAMACARE, to the PROGRESSIVES, is about more Government......
So the Dems lose the 2010 election. They know that the governmentalization of health care is the fastest way to a permanent left-of-center political culture.
So there was President Obama, giving his bazillionth speech on health care, droning yet again that "now is the hour when we must seize the moment," the same moment he's been seizing every day of the week for the past year, only this time his… Continue
In my opinion until they get rid of the Progressives like Michael Steel in the Republican Party nothing will change. Let's face it they are the reason the Tea Party Groups formed. We are looking for strong conservatives who believe in our platform. We don't need any conservatives Rhino's who claim to be conservative in name only. The RNC needs a shake-up. .
I was at the meeting with Chairman Steele and the other Tea Party Leaders on February 16, 2010, who to nearly the last one were there to represent their group and to find answers and hopefully some common ground with the RNC/Republican Party going forward!
It turned out to be a very productive meeting for both the Tea Party leaders and Michael Steele and staff. Early on it was…
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nationwide Tea Party Coalition - "Take The Town Halls To Washington"
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (March 5, 2010) - The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is today announcing a new project, "Take The Town Halls To Washington", which is designed to bring tea party activists to Washington, DC during the month of March to meet, question and review the positions of approximately 60 Democrat members of the House of Representatives whose vote on the pending Health Care legislation has not yet been publicly announced. Tea Party Nation is a collaborating partner in the project.
Spokesman Mark A. Skoda, who is also Chairman of The Memphis TEA Party stated, "President Obama has indicated his willingness to ignore the people and force his bill through Congress using whatever means necessary. Our objective is to bring thousands of constituents to DC to meet with their representatives, capture their comments and produce a review of those positions on a daily basis. We believe that time is of the essence and the people need to understand where these representatives stand before any vote is taken."
Organizer, Michael Patrick Leahy further stated, "After more than a year of tea party resistance to the big government efforts of the Obama Administration, it all comes down to the next 3 weeks. The Administration has made it clear. They intend to ram down the Health Care takeover through a corrupt Congress by the end of this month, in direct defiance of the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
“It is time for every tea party activist across the country to consider dropping everything he or she is doing and join us in the most important battle of our life time. We need your energy, commitment, and efforts to make this succeed. We need you to consider coming to Washington during this 3 week period, and if you can’t come to Washington, be part of this project in your local area.”
A nationwide webcast is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 with meetings in DC scheduled to begin the following day through March 31, 2010. Logistics are being coordinated for those coming to Washington and daily briefings and reviews are scheduled during the project. It is expected that visits will take place while Congress is in session from Monday through Friday.
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on important national projects. It was the group that organized the February 27, 2009 “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” in 51 cities around the country that launched the Tea Party Movement, as well as the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party, where 1 million tea party activists attended events in over 900 cities.
