I’ll meet you here a year from today.
Here’s a list of the 50 bills in Congress that moved people to contact Congress about them. (boy that is an unfriendly grammatical sentence!) It’s good info to have. However … it’s extremely depressing to see how many of the bills We The People thought important enough to communicate with Congress about are unpassed, still in committee, or never got a vote. Really cements the | Read More »
A thought about Ben Nelson
I had a chat with my good friend Linda today, we were both kinda feeling the pain of not having had any “wins” yet. A win, like an actual budget. Some regulations abolished. A showdown with the Senate or the Obama Admin that we don’t cave to. A South Carolina law passed that an activist judge or the DOJ doesn’t squash. But I got to | Read More »
Tea Party … One by One. Your Mission …
I pulled into my driveway today I saw the guy was there do to my termite bond inspection. He pointed to the Spartanburg Tea Party magnets on my car door and smiled and said “Ah! Tea Party!” We chatted, and had the same conversation that you’ve probably all had. How’s it looking for President. Our disappointment that Cain had dropped out. How angry he was, | Read More »

For a couple weeks now, Michele Bachmann’s campaign in South Carolina has been attacking the tea party movement by accusing tea party supporters of Newt Gingrich of being bought off. Now that Michele Bachmann herself has decided to throw fuel on the fire, and this issue has become national news, we as leaders within the South Carolina tea party movement feel we must speak out | Read More »
Tea Party meeting in January? Have a volunteer fair.
The January meeting of the Spartanburg Tea Party will be a volunteer fair … because … the work of the tea party is to show up! In our county we are represented by six House Reps who all voted against the GOP platform on at least one significant issue last session, and received mostly D’s and F’s on their SC Club for Growth scorecard. Several | Read More »
SC Tea Party holds “Retirement Party” for Senator Thomas (who is already collecting his pension)
RINO Hunt, Americans Have Had Enough, and the Spartanburg Tea Party are teaming up to hold a retirement party for a sitting SC State Senator. Here’s the scoop: Many of you may remember the USA Today story about South Carolina legislators collecting lofty pensions at the same time they continue to serve. The question is who are they serving? The legislators are not just taking | Read More »
Are you willing to give up “Chunky Monkey”?
Baby steps. It is my strong conviction that, as thoughtfully and practically as possible, we should not support those who are seeking … through intentional action/words or even those who are ignorant … to take away our liberties. That conviction extends to entertainment, shopping choices, travel, insurance companies … any time we as consumers can make a decision to support or not support liberty destroyers. | Read More »
RINOs Beware. SC County Rules may compel adherence to platform!
We are still fighting here in South Carolina for registration by party in order to vote. So many of our RINO problems in our state are because politicians who are Dems in their core convictions KNOW they cannot get elected running as a Dem, so they register and run as Republicans and the Dems cross over and vote for them. Or the Dem crossover gives | Read More »
Voting on Bills and the Chicago Manual of Style
I’m an editor for a living, a freelance editor, so I need to occasionally contract for work with new employers. In order to determine whether my editing skills and viewpoints meet their expectations we come to certain agreements. I have to agree to edit their materials according to their house styles/standard. Once agreed, they hire me and pay me to do the work to the | Read More »
