“Official Announcement”

Joan Fabiano, activist and Tea Party organizer will join the Michigan leg of the Tea Party Express III “Vote Them Out” Tour. Fabiano is a retired General Motors employee and United Auto Workers Union member now running a small business part-time. She has lived in the state of Michigan, once considered the automotive capital of the world, throughout her life.

Ms. Fabiano has been an active citizen, engaging in the political process both online as a blogger and on the grassroots level within Michigan. She is among the “pioneers” of the tea party movement, having organized the event held at the State Capitol on February 27, 2009, which occurred simultaneously with those in 40 other cities. Soon after she founded the citizen activist group, Grassroots in Michigan.

Tea Party Express Coordinator, Joe Wierzbicki, extended the invitation to Fabiano, “We were inspired and impressed by Joan’s passion, her diligence and determined efforts to return our country and her state to a Constitutional government. We are happy to have her join our family here on the Tea Party Express bus for our tour through Michigan.”

Joan Fabiano of Grassroots in Michigan says, “I am grateful for the opportunity to meet more of my fellow Michiganders and to introduce them to Grassroots in Michigan’s latest project “Take Michigan Back”. We are reclaiming our rights from the politicians and progressive policies that have brought Michigan down a road towards ruin and economic destruction.”
Fabiano goes on to say, “Not only are we going “Vote Them Out”, but we will replace them with men and women who know that serving is a civic duty and who will govern according to the Constitutions of Michigan and the United States.”

Kill or NULLIFY the Health Care Bill Rally THIS Sunday March 21


Nullify Health Care Flash Rally-Protest


Time: This Sunday, March 21, 2010 from 2pm to 3:30pm
Location: Capitol Ave in front of the State Capitol
Street: 100 N. Capitol Ave
City/Town: Lansing

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.
Click to Learn More About HJR YY

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!

From Across the Pond: Descendants of Our Founders Rise Up!

Here’s the link Telegraph.co.uk

Oh so British…

The inaugural British Tea Party will take place on Saturday in my home town of Brighton, and I’ll be speaking. Do try to come: here are the details.

Labour has raised more than a trillion pounds in additional taxation since 1997. Yet, unbelievably, Gordon Brown has still managed to run up a deficit of 12.6 per cent of GDP (Greece’s is 12.7 per cent). A far lower level of taxation brought Americans out in spontaneous protest last year.

If you happen to be coming to the Conservative Spring Conference, do please pop in: the Tea Party is five minutes’ walk from the conference venue. It is, however, outside the security zone, and anyone is welcome to come. Oh, and this being England, we’ll be serving actual, you know, tea. I hope to see some of this blog’s readers there.

Good Show!

AFTER ACTION REPORT: LIBERALS GONE WILD!

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
