HDR 81(1): Something’s Brewing
Aloha, All! It’s an abbreviated HDR this week because I am up to my ears in Tea Party planning. Yes, I am involved in the preparations for this week’s rally in Honolulu. I hope all of you are participating in a rally near you this Thursday. Don’t believe the lies from the lame-stream media about who is involved in the Tea Party movement – we’re people just like you! We’re tired of big, bloated government and high taxes. We want government transparency and accountability. We’re sick of the back-room deals, the fraud and the lies. And we want REAL change we can believe in. Not statism, socialism, Marxism or communism, but a return to the Constitution and the principles on which our country was founded. We rally because we know all the lousy legislation we’ve seen lately can be repealed with the right people in control. And we intend to make sure that happens this November and in 2012. For now, we gather together to show solidarity in our cause. April 15, 2010, is a step in taking back our country. Will you be a part of it? As Gandhi said, “‘First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.'”

April 15 Means Nothing To Congress. They will miss that deadline for finishing next year’s budget. Are you kidding me????? If we don’t pay our taxes by April 15, we could get fined or thrown in jail. If we don’t meet a budget, the creditors come after us. Yet our representatives don’t think it’s necessary to finish our country’s budget, or even pass a first version of a budget….this is the first time since 1974 that such unprecedented inaction has occurred. Are you ready to attend a Tea Party now? Congress Sees No Budget Rush
FYI….some of the speculation is that the Dems are putting off the budget process now because it will hurt their Fall election campaigns. Fools….they are already toast!
Final Thought: “Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”
