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.
On Friday February 12, 2010, 7:03 pm EST
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.
What did everyone think of that dud last night, called a speech? The charm of last year, if one can call it that-is long GONE. He said "I" over ninety times, and "me", over forty. Harry Reid was yawning, and at best, the performance was flat, in its' entirety. And more important, the pres. maintains his hard left positions for the most part.
Just got a look at this post from the AP... http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Figures-on-government-apf-2178072020.html?... ...Correct me if I am wrong,,,but...the receipts went down...the outlay went up...and the national debt is screwed. The floated proposals will only make this worse. Yiyiyi...my great-great grandkids will be paying for this!
This is getting patently ridiculous-The One using a teleprompter to address elementary school children? There has GOT to be something that is being carefully hidden from the American People, I'm sure about that. With the right/left/right/left/right/left head sweeps, too. "UFB", IMO!
Foreign Money in American Politics?
Some Say Supreme Court's Decision in Citizens United Case Has Opened New Path
By MATTHEW MOSK
Jan. 24, 2010 —
Some election lawyers believe that last week's landmark U.S. Supreme Court opinion may have opened a new avenue for foreign money to enter the American political system, and that the justices are inviting a repeat of the 1996 Chinese money scandal that bloodied the Clinton administration.
Is it right that our country is bankrupt but is borrowing one hundred million from China to give to Haiti? China which has a bounty of eight hundred billion of the U.S. treasury is donating a miserly one million, go figure?
Detroit with 50% unemployment and a Michigan state on the verge of bankruptcy has its Nonprofits organizing Aid to Haiti.

Reaction of political groups was immediate.
"This decision allows Wall Street to tap its vast corporate profits to drown out the voice of the public in our democracy," said Bob Edgar, president of Common Cause, a group that favors limits on campaign spending and vowed to push swift passage of legislation in Congress to publicly finance congressional elections.

WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- Japan said it would loosen the rules of its car- buying incentive program so that more imports would qualify for the government- funded rebates, a change pushed by U.S. officials and auto makers who accused the program of an anti-American bias.
The first shot has been fired. Now lets get rid of the rest of this worthless congress and put people in that will obey the constitution and listen to the people they are suppose to work for.
Are you reading this Marcy?
Well, it looks like "The One" again delivers nothing-he campaigns for a liberal senator candidate, who loses the seat Kennedy held since 1970s'. No free gas, no money for car payments, no health care, no cap and trade, and of course, NO JOBS. Folks, how's that Hope and Change working out for you?
