It's too exciting not to post: We've been vindicated by the TU

Today is Sunday, May 22, 2011 and we must give kudos to the TU.  I’ll even refrain from calling them the Tiny Union since they made headways today to publish a story with facts vs opinions.


Article:  The front page headline of the TU states “Brown won it on issues, advisers, ground game”


We thank you for this great report.  It appears you finally did some factual reporting.  In doing so you vindicated what the tea party members said, posted, blogged, and pushed out as far as we could without a media giant behind us and with a small donation bucket from our tea party members.  Our vindication came with these facts made public in the article:


  • Quote:  “The ground game – paid workers who fanned out across the city to personally contact voters…”
    • Vindication:  We said the workers were PAID and we were up against a political machine.


  • Quote:  “Craig Kirby of Washington, DC, Brown’s campaign manager for the second election…”  and “Bacote, a Maryland resident who teaches canvassing techniques for the Congressional Black Caucus…”
    • Vindication:  We said “out-of-towners” were here and would frame who our mayor would be


  • Quote:  “In the end, the victory came because of all of those things coming together: the support of Republicans…”
    • Vindication:  Our questioning the cross-over of Republicans to a Democrat and asking them why they just didn’t announce they were really Democrats in their hearts.  We still encourage them to move to the correct party that they are called to instead of staying in the GOP as RINOs.



Article:  The Metro page headline:  Holland stands by mayoral race vote tally


A stolen private email among tea party leaders about the mayor’s race and how we could learn from it was put into the hands of Abel Harding.  He chose to put it into an article.  Thank you for this article.  We are proud to ask that every single vote count.  That’s been the mantra of the left so we think they were on to something here.   Joseph Stalin once said:  “It’s not WHO votes that counts.  It’s who COUNTS the votes.”



Article:  Editorial – Our next mayor has a long road ahead


“He did not meet with tea party leaders.  He should invite them to offer concrete suggestions.” 

Thank you editors!  We asked to meet with Mr. Brown over and over again during his campaign.  He ignored us.  He did not fill out our questionnaire.  He did not meet with the board.  He did not attend our Mayoral Town Hall Debate.  He did not respond to any of our requests.  We were stood up and we hope he heeds your advice.  We await his call.


So today the Tea Party can proudly say – “We told you so.”  You may have made fun of us for saying out-of-towners were here and paid workers were smoking pot outside the GOP headquarters (we called them Zombies since they had glassy eyes from the pot) BUT today you proved us right.  Thank you TU! 


And a special recognition to the team behind Alvin Brown – good job. 


We learned a lot and we’ll see you in November 2012.

  • During campaigns the media is threatened by both parties that "if you report the oppositions side, we will take our business elsewhere"...the parties have more money than we do, so they get their side reported while ours is not. The media is dependent on campaign money for their very survival.  Judge Napolitano explains that is the same way States lost their rights, and it is also how they try to  co-opt organizations like ours. Make us dependent on their money so we do as told.
  • Now that the campaign is over, the media is more free to report on the truth. Something they really prefer to do.

Note:  The following is not an endorsement for Ron Paul ( I have not decided yet who I will vote for because the research is not in, and it would be foolish of me to make a decision before having all the facts)

  • Have you ever notice how the media before campaigns begin, Ron Paul is interviewed regularly, praised for his accurate prediction of the economy, and highly respected?  But as soon as campaigns begin, he is an portrayed as "too extreme", "radical", "anti Israel", ext. ..anything to keep you from even considering him as a possible candidate...

What's point of being magnanimous towards the TU when they waited until after the election to publish anything of substance rather than just free commecials for Brown? 

So now they can claim to be "fair & balanced"?  HAHAHAHA

Everyone call the city at 630-CITY and file a complaint.  I saw them too.

Alvin brown stickers have been placed over Hogan Road street signs. Who can we call about that? The Brown camp should have to pay to replace those, NOT the taxpayers of Jacksonville! !

The money trail probably leads back to George Soros.
Comment by Kate Svagdis on May 22, 2011 at 8:41am

Brown ignored TEA Party because as the Soros machine of paid activists/OFA/ still say we, the TEA Party, are a dying entity, we don't matter. Even on Cspan this morning, they say are numbers are dwindling.

Well, we do pretty good for NO pay, NO bribes, NO transportation, NO free publicity.


The crooks and infiltrators did mow us over-who will pay for the lawn service now.

Rahm emmanuel 'won' in Chicago.

Tampa -gone.

Awake up America.

Where's the money????   Where did the money come from for Brown. And to whom is Brown returning it?

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
