Trick or Treat and a Health Care Flier for Mom and Dad!

Halloween is just around the corner and this year it’s just not about costumes and candy.

It’s an opportunity to reach others with the truth that you may not otherwise have!

So while you treat the kids with candy, consider treating their parents with the Truth about the so called “health care” plan that is a nail in the coffin of our Republic (coffin image is a perfect fit for Halloween, conjures up images of a creative display for the porch 🙂 AND common sense alternative with an easy action plan to boot!

Below are the links to two fliers that you can PRINT OUT or DOWNLOAD (Print out one or both) Fold and put in number 10 envelope and when the kids come to your door, you give a treat to the parents!

Copies are 17 cents per copy at Office Max Folding is just 3 cents more and color paper is the same color as white, how about a nice Halloween orange?

Word: PLEASE DO NOT PLACE FLIERS IN THE KIDS CANDY BAG
The bag is for CANDY ONLY and it not appropriate for anything else
The parents who you are trying to reach with the truth will NOT appreciate it and you will lose those whom you are trying to win.

If you are taking your kids trick or treating, take stuffed envelopes along and hand one out at the homes you visit. Once again, please DO NOT HAVE THE KIDS PASS OUT
The kids job is to acquire as much candy as possbile 🙂

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

David vs. Goliah: Battling Special Rights and the Radical Homosexaul Agenda

There is a battle going on right there in Michigan that many know have not heard of but the results in just a mere 8 DAYS could very well affect everyone in Michigan.

The battle is over special rights for homosexuals in Kalamazoo, Ordinance 1865

For a full analysis of What will Ordinance 1865 do?

Basically it is another attempt by homosexual activists for special rights… to FORCE BY LAW, EVERYONE else to accept, approve, and endorse their choices. And since the ordinance, includes ‘gender identity’, this legally recognizes an individual defining himself as the opposite sex, in this case male transgendered could “legally” use woman’s bathrooms, locker rooms and showers.

And they are well funded by Kalamazoo billionaire homosexual activist Jon Stryker and other out of state groups.

KALAMAZOO — A political interest group supporting an anti-discrimination (notice that they call it anti-discrimination when its not) ordinance on the city’s Nov. 3 ballot has raised a possible record campaign war chest for a Kalamazoo County election.

Based on pre-election campaign-finance reports filed Friday with the Kalamazoo County Clerk’s Office, One Kalamazoo has raised nearly $350,000 in cash and in-kind contributions, more than 10 times the $34,000 reported by Kalamazoo Citizens Voting NO to Special Rights Discrimination, a group opposing the proposed ordinance.

“If it’s not a record, it’s certainly right up there,” said Kalamazoo County Clerk Tim Snow….

While Hoadley said 77 percent of the group’s donations were for $50 or less, One Kalamazoo’s report shows some five-figure contributions, most from donors with addresses outside Michigan.

For example, the Washington, D.C.-based National Gay and Lesbian Task Force made the largest, single in-kind contribution, spending nearly $75,000 on behalf of the Kalamazoo campaign for “donated labor” and “travel, lodging and printing.”

A South Dakota gay-rights activist sent a check for $35,000. A Colorado-based organization chipped in $5,000.

Kalamazoo philanthropist(code for radical homosexual agenda) and gay (homosexual)-rights supporter Jon Stryker also has had a substantial imprint on One Kalamazoo’s financing.

The financial reports show that Stryker made a $30,000 cash contribution to the group and paid for nearly $23,000 in polling services as an in-kind donation.

Locally, the Kalamazoo County Democratic Party contributed $10,200 to the pro-ordinance effort.

One Kalamazoo says its spent about $122,000, much of that on professional campaign firms in the Lansing and Washington, D.C., areas.

Both groups may continue to raise and spend money on their campaigns. Final spending totals are not due to be reported until Dec. 3.

Bottom line: Help is needed in Kalamazoo. If this passes expect to be fighting it in your backyard

To help in any way to fight this please go to Kalamazoo Citizens Voting NO to Special Rights Discrimination There is only 8 DAYS left before the November 3rd vote

Taxed to Death on Michigan Doctors AND What Canadians Want You To Know About Their Health Care System

Courtesy of Mackinac Center for Public Policy

SIDEBAR: Michigan House-Senate Conference Committee, which is looking for ways to erase a $2.8 billion budget deficit for fiscal 2010, is considering imposing a 3 percent Gross provider tax on more than 15,000 physicians who practice in the state.

The possible physician tax, known as a Quality Assurance Assessment Program fee, would be used to increase federal matching share dollars for the state’s Medicaid program. For every $1 the state raises, the federal government matches with another $1.72.

If this tax is implemented the affect will be many doctors leaving the state and result in a reduced quality of care for Michigan citizens. How many have we lost in recent years? Something close to 500,000 of our best educated and most skilled people. “Taxed to Death” takes on an ominous meaning here..

This has already passed the House (HB 5386) and will be headed for the Senate
as SB 0854

PLEASE CALL your Senator and tell them not to TAX our doctors!

AFTER ACTION REPORT:Michigan Patriots Deliver Pink Slip to Liberal Debbie Stabenow

IMG_3336Grassroots in Michigan organized and was joined by Tea Party of West Michigan Southwest MI Tea Party Patriotsand other patriots from across Michigan to protest and deliver a Pink Slip to liberal tool Debbie Stabenow with a message, “we will do everything in our power to make sure Sen. Stabenow does not return to office in 2012” Debbie Stabenow is a lock step liberal who was on the Senate Finance Committee that voted the Baucus Amendment out. Please take a minute to read the most egregious parts of the Baucus Amendment AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST because you won’t hear the truth from Debbie!

Setting Brush Fires…Why not Filibuster?

It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds. Samuel Adams

Finance committee vote on Baucus bill scheduled for this coming Tuesday….
This is crunch time folks. We need to flood the Finance Committee members with faxes, phones, call and e-mails (least effective)

Here is a link to all members of the Finance Committee and their contact information

Debbie Stabenow is on the Committee. She needs to be flooded with e-mails and faxes and pink slips! Turn you e-mail or fax into a pink slip! YOU’RE DONE DEBBIE!

What happens when the Baucus bill gets out of committee?

Washington Examiner Opinion

“Whatever the content of the Baucus bill once it is voted out of the finance committee, it will disappear into a legislative black hole as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and their key aides do what they did on the economic stimulus package back in February — huddle together behind closed doors to write the final bill, which will then be presented as a fait accompli in the form of a conference report. Everything else is mere sound and fury signifying nothing until Harry and Nancy do their thing in the dark.”

From FedUpUsa

Nicholas Ballasy reports “a senior aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told CNSNews.com that it is ‘likely’ that Reid will use H.R. 1586—a bill passed by the House in March to impose a 90-percent tax on bonuses paid to employees of certain bailed-out financial institutions—as a ‘shell’ for enacting the final version of the Senate’s health care bill, which Reid is responsible for crafting.”

This procedure is the same unconstitutional procedure they used to pass the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act (EESA) back in November to give Hank Paulson his ‘$700 Billion Bazooka.’

Article I, Sec. 7: ALL bills for raising revenue will originate in the House.

They are doing exactly what they did with EESA/TARP – by passing the house by putting the HC bill on a revenue bill. This results in the Senate originating a revenue bill!

Washington DC must be shut down now. We are about to lose our country entirely.

Stephanie S. Jasky, Founder, Director

I agree with Stephanie, we must call/fax AND we need to include top Republicans/Conservatives. They SHOULD be shouting this from the roof tops and planning a Senate filibuster
Why aren’t they????

Senate filibuster from “The Making of America, the substance and meaning of the Constitution” by W. Cleon Skousen…

…the principled devise for is for a small group of Senators to get con troll of the floor and talk in tandem for long periods of time. The whole object is a delaying action”

In 1935, Huey Long of LA (Democrat) held the Senate floor for 15 hours while he read form the telephone book, a mail order catalog and the newspaper. The longest filibuster on record is that of Strom Thurmond of SC (when he was a Democrat) He held the Senate floor in 1957 for twenty-four hours

CRS-20
The Impact of Filibusters

Obviously, a filibuster has the greatest impact on the Senate when a 60-vote majority cannot be assembled to invoke cloture. In that case, the measure or other matter that is being filibustered is doomed unless its opponents relent and allow the Senate to vote on it. Even if cloture is invoked, however, a filibuster can significantly affect how, when, and even whether the Senate conducts its legislative and executive business. In fact, it is not an exaggeration to say that filibusters and the prospect of filibusters shape much of the way in which the Senate does its work on the floor

Why shouldn’t Republicans/Conservatives filibuster now? Is there less at stake then in the past? Wouldn’t that get press and therefore give them an opportunity to expose the plan to more Americans?

So the Democrats/Liberal/Fascists can use cloture to stop the filibuster but it takes 60% of the Senate, every Democrat and both Independents and…. time

“The votes of only 51 Senators are needed to pass a bill on the floor. It can, however, require the votes of 60 Senators to invoke cloture on the bill in order to overcome a filibuster and enable the Senate to reach that vote on final passage.”

Conservatives can use the filibuster to our country’s benefit, to tell the American people why they are doing it. The Democrats/Liberal/Fascists can counter with the “Nuclear Option”

But would they? They want bi-partisan, or at least the illusion of it and if they do go ahead with a Nuclear Option, Republican/Conservatives can counter…Democrats/Liberal/Fascists squashed debate again, rammed through another massive government control spending bill. They wanted this thing; we didn’t want any part of it!

Either way this bill is going to get passed because the “usual suspect” RINOS will defect (think Olympia Snowe) but it could be in lesser form and with the Republicans/Conservatives showing that they did everything to stop another massive spending bill of over a trillion dollars coupled with a government take over of our liberties! In other words, their job.

Lets’ face it what do they have to lose?
Republicans/Conservatives have been shut out, disregarded and disrespected 37 ways to Sunday by this administration, especially by Pelosi and Reid. Remember Pelosi hissed, “We Won” and then proceeded (excuse my language) to bitch slap the Republicans/Conservatives around.

We have had tea parties, calls/faxes e-mails, taken to the streets, counter-protested, gave and went to Town Halls, blogged, YouTubed, we have went toe-to toe and sometimes face-to-face with the opposition. And worked over time because we know it takes ACTION!

I want to see some courageous forget-about-my-career action from The Hill!

Where is our William Wallace?

Instead of focusing on the opposition entirely, perhaps we need to focus and demand that those on our side have a tea party of their own!!

The very future of our country is at stake…TEA PARTY ON THE HILL!

To the Phones! NO NEW TAXES!!

FromRepublican Michigander

It’s time for us to call our reps!

The House is expected to vote on five revenue bills during Tuesday’s session.

House Democrats are expected to caucus for several hours before the vote. If all five revenue proposals were to become law they would raise an estimated $345.8 million.

The revenue proposals are:
•a 15 percent reduction in Michigan Business Tax credits, equal to $116.1 million
•raising the state’s other tobacco products tax by $41 million
•an extended hours liquor license fee to raise $13.7 million,
•freezing some personal exemptions to the income tax to save $55 million,
•and raising the earned income tax credit by less than the scheduled level to save $120 million.

A sixth proposal to launch a tax on physicians at 3 percent is not expected to come up for a vote today.
