April 15th marks the day when many Americans pay more than their fair share in taxes. Grass roots patriots in Michigan will join thousands across the state of Michigan and the nation to voice our opposition to big government and spending that has pushed the federal deficit to record levels as part of the continuing movement of nationwide “Tea Parties.”
The protest is one of hundreds to be held at the same time in cities and towns all across Michigan and the United States. Tea parties will also be held in Chicago, Washington, Atlanta, Anchorage, Honolulu, Phoenix, Sacramento, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Fort Worth, San Diego, Portland, Ore., and at hundreds of other locations.
Joan Fabiano of Grassroots in Michigan says, “As Michiganders we have seen the results of progressive tax and spend policies. After eight years Michigan is in shambles. Unemployment is at almost 15%, the Car Capitol of the World has seen a government take over of GM, jobs evaporate, foreclosures rise and families leave.”
Fabiano, goes on to say,” 2010 is the year that We the People will “Take Michigan Back” from the politicians and progressive policies that have brought Michigan down a road towards ruin and economic destruction.”
BRING YOUR STATE OF MICHIGAN FLAG
Bernanke on the topic of deficits and government spending: “To avoid large and unsustainable budget deficits, the nation will ultimately have to choose among higher taxes, modifications to entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, less spending on everything else from education to defense, or some combination of the above”. Republicans are opposed to raising taxes, and democrats are loathe cut cut entitlement programs, the combination of which help to explain why our country has such massive debt problems……

As you recall HJR YY would amend Michigan’s Constitution by creating a Federalism Commission to charged with monitoring and reviewing federal laws and mandates to determine if they violate the Michigan Constitution or if they violate such areas as the 9th and 10th Amendments of the US Constitution. If any law is considered unconstitutional then legislation is introduced to nullify it. HJY YY also includes Memorandums of Understanding which have created a “shadow government” by contacts that often exceed authority.
HJR YY is in House Judiciary Committee now.
Committees can be where bills go to die.
We need to get it out and on the committee calendar!
YOU CAN HELP BY CALLING OR E-MAIL TODAY
Tell Rep Meadows you want HJR YY to be put on the Committee Calendar for a hearing
Rep. Mark Meadows, (Chair)

Together we can Take Michigan Back!

The US Congress is poised to “deem and pass” one of, if not the most damaging bill in US history. They are doing this despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of Americans are against it.
WASHINGTON IS NOT LISTENING TO US
It’s time to put pressure on our elected officials in Michigan!
If there is no way to kill this bill, then Michigan needs to exert its 10th Amendment Sovereignty and
NULLIFY this bill!
A number of states, like Idaho, are passing provisions that would either prohibit it from becoming a law in their state, or would require the state to file a suit.
Michigan has such a provision. House Joint Resolution, HJR YY introduced by Rep. Opsommer, that is in the Judiciary Committee.

This Joint Resolution would amend Michigan’s Constitution to create a Federalism Committee charged with monitoring and reviewing federal laws and mandates to determine if they violate the Michigan Constitution or if they violate such areas as the 9th and 10th Amendments of the US Constitution. Federalism Commission determines a violation exists, the law will provide for an expedited process for the commission to then push appropriate legislation to the floor to nullify.
Rep. Paul Opsommer will be joining us!

Well what this wrong with that?
Of course anyone who believes in the Constitution would naturally be saying “NO!”
NO to an unconstitutional mandate in a bill forcing every American to buy a service
NO to more unsustainable government orgy of spending
NO to the erosion of personal liberties, by a government take over of individual health care choices
NO to a government bill that mandates right the light bulb or appliance that a citizen must own
NO to the fraud of global warming pushed by the Obama regime, that could cost individual families up to $2,000 per year in increase utilizes
NO to Card check” that robs a citizen of their right to vote privacy
No to appointed “czars”
No to the “taxation with out representation of the so- called stimulus bills
NO to a 1.7 Trillion dollar deficit and growing
NO to government take over of private industries (GM)
NO to every unconstitutional and draconian government control bill that the progressives have thrown out the past year
NO, NO a thousand times NO! a 1.7 trillion times NO!
If you child wanted to get drunk and then drive hot rod and drive would you say yes?
Of course not, because you know that it wouldn’t be in their best interest!
Saying No is in the best interests of your constituents and your country!
So Republicans, Conservatives… own the “NO!”
Rob the Obama regime of a silly whiny accusation! Throw it back in their face! NO is constitutional, NO is right, NO is in the best interest of my constituents, of America, of Americans
Ok are you ready! Say it out loud, “WE ARE THE PARTY OF “NO” AND PROUD!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

As we remember “the Gipper” today on the anniversary of his birth, lets not just recall one of the most successful presidents in the history of our country but the man, a man of ideas, principals and faith. And then carry on with those principals, ideas and faith for only then we will be successful in saving our country from the current regime.
Our party must be based on the kind of leadership that grows and takes its strength from the people. Any organization is in actuality only the lengthened shadow of its members. A political party is a mechanical structure created to further a cause.
The cause, not the mechanism, brings and holds the members together. And our cause must be to rediscover, reassert and reapply America’s spiritual heritage to our national affairs.
Then with God’s help we shall indeed be as a city upon a hill with the eyes of all people upon us.
Ronald Reagan, 1977
40th President of the United States

The most egregious action was before I could whip out my trusty Flip camera. However, the pudgy man, Erin Fox, in the extreme close up (sorry) is a usual suspect, “community organizer” and MoveOn.org operative
I have encountered him at other actions and his modus operanti is always the same, trying to get in your face to disturb and/or name calling. Although his physical intimidation is getting more aggressive as he realizes that his “religion” the Health Care bill is in big trouble.
The young man with the dark hair that I point out as another “usual suspect” is either a MoveOn.org operative or works for the Democrat party. I recently had another “close encounter” with him at the Sanctity of Life Rally January 22 at our state Capitol, where he was counter-protesting life in favor of abortion.
We had formed a line in front of the counter-protesters and so our backs were turned to them, (not really a good idea when dealing with progressives). His tactic was to come from behind and lean in as close as possible without actually touching to yell things like, “Keep your rosary off my body” (odd coming from a man?) and “pro-family, pro-life”. He can be seen carrying the sign “Keep Abortion Legal” while clutching his upscale brand coffee I am sure Biggy’s is grateful for the pro-abortion “advertising”
See video below of Sanctity of Life counter-protest by these usual suspects
What is really disturbing about this is how militant against life these people are at such a young age. Hearts hardened and conscience seared. However when we realize that these young people have known nothing but legalized abortion in this country, the acceptance of what is “legalized murder” is sadly understandable. Seeing and knowing this, we must consider giving greater time and energy to the pro-life movement. Its a historical facts history that when any civilization no matter how great loses its moral underpinnings then that civilization falls.
The upshot of all of this is that if progressives do not respect life, how can they be expected to respect free speech? Obviously answer, they can’t and they don’t
