I sent the following email to the website the White House has been touting. Everyone should send one of their own as a poke in the eye toward those arrogant jerks.
I was at a town hall meeting in Romulus, Michigan, on August 6th, and heard some really "fishy" stuff coming from Democratic Congressman John Dingell. He gave us information that sounded suspiciously like outright lies. Maybe you should investigate him.

Remember back when Hillary was trying to get her version of "Health Scare" passed....about 15 years ago, I think....The drug companies started a campaign of TV ads showing a middle-aged couple chatting over the kitchen table...."Ted and Louise" helped sink Hillary's nasty plans for us....BUT...this time they are back, and this couple has switched sides!
This story from Yahoo NEWS this AM,explains it all.....So we are also fighting "the most powerful lobbyists"???

The fellow at the Town Hall carrying the Obama picture with the mustache told someone he was an FDR Democrat. He and his friend were handing out booklets at the back door as I left so I got one. Someone posted that the head of the group, Lyndon LaRouche, is a communist. I don't know if he is a communist but I found some interesting historical information in the booklet. He hates the Nazi's and Great Britain and loves Franklin Roosevelt. He warns of the coming euthanasia and rationing espoused… Continue

On a short news story this AM....Channel 7 Action News....at about 6:10 AM, Joann Purtan read a news story that was obviously wrong! She was reporting about the protests at Dingell's TownHall meeting, and she said that a "National" group was behind the protests. This confirms that the local news folks have drank the Koolaid that Dingell's office has offered! Since news organizations always want to be credible and get the story correct(at least at a local level), this presents a great… Continue

My good friend Doug Tietz has just declared that he will run for Troy City Council. Doug organized the fabulously-successful Troy Tax day TEA party 2009. Previously he headed up the 2008 Nebraska Civil Rights initiative campaign to victory and was a major driving force behind the landslide 2006 Michigan Civil Rights Initiative victory. He and two other council candidates are holding a campaign kickoff this coming Thursday August 13th - please RSVP so he can get an accurate headcount but most… Continue

I am planning on attending the DC trip in September. I hope to see as many of you there as possible. They (the media and corrupt politicians) will see that we are not surrendering to their cynicism and lies. Show up in DC if you are able. The future of our children and grandchildren depend upon our involvement. Bad things happen when good people stand by and do nothing.

I saw something truly insulting and disturbing on the news. Andrea Mitchell, a correspondent with NBC News, made a comment about the people protesting the Healthcare Bill, saying they just "do not understand what is really good for them". This is a perfect example of the arrogant and elitist attitude that the mainstream media and politicians harbor toward their own constituents. I guess we a supposed to be stupid and helpless, waiting for the Ivy League educated and intellectually superior… Continue

Just for fun, imagine that you are the CEO of ACME, Inc. You are looking fill a very important position, so you are personally doing the interviews. The position will be to take over the health care system. The interview could go something like this….
“Hello, Federal Government. Come in and have a seat. I see you have applied for the position to take over health care.”
“Yes, I have. I will do a fine job for you.”

Some other groups are protesting at Congressional offices at noon on August 22nd. I'd like to get a group together for a protest in front of Gary Peters place seeing it doesn't look like he will be holding a town hall anytime soon.
Anybody that would like to join, send me a note and we'll see what we can put together.
