Looks like an American born terrorist got caught-in Pakistan. He's currently being "questioned" by Pakistani intelligence officers(who have a good working relationship with the CIA). It is also reported he's the first American charged with treason(2006)in the last 50 years. He's made several videos urging American Moslems to attack the US.
Group countering Tea Party movement growing in strength

Amazing they force infants, elderly people to be screened and this goes on.
I feel safer already NOT!
While the PMA group is still being investigated by the FBI and while Marcy still has apparently funneled money in her campaign coffers, here is a copy of the Office of Congressional Ethics report on Marcy. There is some interesting stuff in here, like why Marcy wants to give taxpayer money to a company so they can build TVs here as well as who was not forthcoming on the interviews and what Marcy actually calls "earmarks" (sort of a PC way to make her feel good I guess). More on it another day, but you can read everything for yourself right now.
You can also see a copy of the full report at:
We went into slavery a piece of property; we came out American citizens. We went into slavery pagans; we came out Christians. We went into slavery without a language; we came out speaking the proud Anglo-Saxon tongue. We went into slavery with slave chains clanking about our wrists; we came out with the American ballot in our hands.
- Booker T. Washington
The House of Representatives Ethics Committee has cleared 7 lawmakers, of wrongdoing in the PMA Scandal-including Kaptur. So, Congress clears their own saying there was no evidence of asking for votes. One has to wonder what questions they asked. It is too bad we citizens can't hold the same committee hearings that Congress puts others through and question them on this. This does not absolve Kaptur of all of the questionable donations she has received from what appears to be funneled to her campaign coffers from the PMA lobbyist Paul Magliochetti. This story is not done yet and you will get the complete story here, not speckled articles-as you all know and come to expect.

WASHINGTON — About 50 leaders of the grassroots Tea Party movement will meet in Washington today with Republican Party chairman Michael Steele and other top party operatives to discuss campaign strategies and conservative principles.

As Washington works to rev up the economy and spur hiring with yet another dose of stimulus, state and local governments are busily applying the fiscal brakes.
Tax hikes, spending cuts and layoffs top the agenda as states continue to wrestle with severe budget crises that largely can't be deferred by borrowing.
Do you believe their excuse? It took a blogger and the Internet to highlight this issue. Marvel responds in the blog post and tries to explain why the Tea Party was put in that particular issue.

" The cloak of freedom is saturated in the blood of Patriots".
I have been pondering this for most of the day. At what point would the typical American of today be willing to give up all he had and all he will ever have or know for an idea, a belief of freedom. Would they rise to the challenge of securing the hopes and dreams of their fore fathers, for their own prodigy? Would their apathy lead them into the chains of socialism? At what point were our Revolutionary Patriots of our nations birth committed to their cause?

The Washington elite don't have an idea what the American people want or need. Obama talks about investing in new technologies, wind mills and light rail. Do we care about these?
Wind Mils have been around for hundreds of years they don't work because they are unreliable and inefficient, Who among us is asking for light rail? Trains have also been around for a long time. The automobile brought along their demise.
