HJR 679

Sure the States are sovereign - in principle - but until there are costitutionalists in the Tallahassee White House & Congress, Federal funding rules the policies in the times which we are in - just my 2 cents.

Racism Hate and Politics

Sometimes we do the right things without realizing the full reasons we do them until some time later. The recent ruckus over the appointment of a person with ties to terrorist groups was like that for me.

I and many members of the Peoples Tea Party joined in the opposition to this appointment, some via emails or phone calls others in…

EXTRA HOT TEA: NEED YOU TO MAKE YOUR CALLS TODAY -- HR 2499- Congress to vote on Puerto Rico Democracy Act

Last Tuesday, the liberal House leadership pulled the controversial D.C. House Voting Rights bill from the floor schedule, and we thank you for all of your calls and for taking action! However, just two days after they backed away from the D.C. bill, the House announced that it would move to consider an even more controversial bill that paves the way for U.S. territory Puerto Rico to become…

Letter to Senator LeMieux Please to Counter the Obama Machine

Senator LeMieux is going to be on the receiving end of the "Obama machine" phone calls and letter writing campaign based on this directive (see below) from Obama to OFA. If you have a few minutes, please read about Senator LeMieux's stand on this issue (on his web site if you don't already get his newsletter), and please drop him a note if you support his stance of getting it right and stopping perpetual bail outs from being part of the regulation as the current bill does.

You must lack common sense to be a liberal.

This is from my own personal blog www.theatleeappeal.com



What a weekend it was indeed. Arizona become the first state in the country to decide it’s time to enforce immigration laws. People that support common sense were relieved to hear the news. People that think illegal immigrants have rights started screaming racism. Don’t be surprised if the term “white-collar” jobs gets banned soon because someone finds it racist. You just never know… Continue

“Financial Reform” aka “Red, White and Blue “Barry” with Mixed Nuts from DC”

It didn’t take Congress long to get back in the saddle again after Spring Break and start messing with the American people’s sand box. They are not playing nice again and this time – it is “Financial Reform” and of course, after that will be Immigration Reform and then will come Energy Reform - yada yada yada! This whole Reform-thing is getting a little tiresome and out of hand and it’s time…

Take action now: Contact FL Attorney General Bill McCollum and your FL representatives in support of the suit against the federal health care bill

Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum has filed suit declaring the recently passed federal health care legislation unconstitutional. As badly as we need health care reform, this liberal leftist bill saddled us with costs we can't afford and more government control of our lives. Consider that Social Security is operating at a loss, meaning that anyone on Social Security is about to have their benefits cut, and you have a glimpse of what to expect under government health care. The dependent… Continue

Dr. Alveta King Inspires And Praises The Tea Party Movement



Yesterday I heard Dr. Alveta King, Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, compare the Tea Party to their movement in the 60s. . It was so touching that I felt compelled to share it with you today.

Dr. King said in the 60’s there was violence and greed that parallels what is happening today, and that we must come back to faith hope and love. She continued, we have got to love…

A LIST OF EMAILS OF THE SENATORS THAT SAID YES WHILE THE HEALTH CARE BILL WAS ON THE SENATE FLOOR, PLEASE THANK THEM AS WELL

Here is a separate list of the Florida Senators who voted yes when SJR 72 was the

Senate version. As you know Jeff Atwater being the Chair of the Senate (I think) played a major role in getting this bill where it needed to be, so you may want to if you have time send him a thank you email, but acknowledge his leadership and keeping the bill going even when Galvano called the bill off the floor. He has exceptional leadership qualities!!!!!…

"This is Our Time"

I agree this is our time!! I wrote this right after the Tax Day Tea Party Rally and ironically enough I titled it "This is Our Time"

This is Our Time

By: Mary Ann Mobilian, PharmD

The Tea Party rallies on April 15th were symbolic of an awakening; the realization that for the first time in our lives, we are seeing change that will bring about a fundamental re-structuring of values and power. Our collective complacency was to blame for this regime taking power.…

Will the Real Buddy please stand up!

The following is a comment by “Buddy” as part of "Buddy's" lengthy response to my last blog. I am not sure why ”Buddy” is not using his real name but combined with his comments, I suspect he may not be telling us what he really thinks or intends.…

Out- Alinsky the left,a lesson from San Fran

Our Time has come!!!!!

Oh My Word did you guys see FOX NEWS about the voice over guy getting fired because he left a nasty message on FREEDOM WORKS voice mail?????? About us Tea Party folks.


I remember when we worried about any actor that stood with us because they just didn't get called to work anymore. I just love this!! Its about time and the funny thing is, not that they agreed with us, cause I'm sure most of them are still LIBS, but that they know we are big in Numbers and there…
