Have you heard about the Progressive Rally this weekend in DC? Did you hear about all the unions who are paying people to come to the rally?
One of our very own came up with a great idea. RJ in our tea party is a member of a union and he said if you live within 12 hours of DC they will pay for your transportation. He suggested you tell them we have 10-15 people going and we could get a free trip to DC!!
Here's the information:…Continue

After yesterday's city council meeting all of us were frustrated and mad as heck. As we stated yesterday, there are many complex parts to the issues at hand.
I may step on a few toes with this blog so bear with me for a moment.
While the City Council could have done a better job with the budget and cut more non-essential programs, their hands were tied where the real money could be found. The money that would have made a difference would be to cut salaries (like…Continue

If those city council persons who voted Yea on this increase in property taxes think they are going to get a free ride in their next elections, they had better plan on retiring. We will remember those who voted for the tax increase as well as those who have been spending our money like it was water flowing over a dam, and vote them out of office.
As Tea Party members, we do need to consider recruiting…Continue

I have just returned from the City Council meeting where they voted to raise our property taxes again for the second time in two years.

Last weekend, it was brought to our attention that local lobbyists were caught laughing…Continue

I have torn through another mind blowing section of this book the last few days en route to coming up with my second review. Part 1 mostly dealt with how the immigration wave started and who all is coming over our borders. This part goes a little more in depth and on some of the elements at the beginning of the book, how and why the immigration problem is happening, and some of the consequences. We can already see some of the consequences first hand after the Census Bureau came out today…Continue

An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy; because there is a limit beyond which no institution and no property can bear taxation. - John Marshall
The citizens of Duval County showed up last night and filled the City Council Chambers and two overflow rooms. The spirit in the room was confidence and the people were firm in their pleas to the members of the council. The people were informed and educated and the city…Continue
