Now that this job killing cost raising American enterprise gutting monstrosity passed the house, it will head to the Senate. We need to let Casey Jr. know that WE THE PEOPLE oppose this bill that is antithetical to all that we stand for!
Congress is on summer recess. I think we, and our counterparts throughout the commonwealth should schedule protests at the Senate offices of Bobby Casey (and Arlen Spector). Any thoughts? Who is with me? WE SURROUND THEM, and they need to know… Continue

Shawn Selby has researched Cap and Trade, which is being voted on in the House this week. It is important that we contact our Representatives, to oppose this destructive legislation. Contact information is included at the end of this report.

Call your representative today! Once again, waiting until last minute on budget, Dems in state house are proposing a 16% tax hike to cover the deficit. They are rejecting the Republican Senate bill with drastic cuts.
We are all tightening our belts in this tough economy, and it would be great if Pennsylvania did as well. We can't afford more taxes, and a 16% hike is… Continue

Does Your Freedom Depend on Gold?
By Adam Murdock, MD
Many believe, and rightly so, that gold has intrinsic value. As a result, gold served as the ultimate and most stable form of currency in the 19th century. A gold-backed U.S. dollar permitted unprecedented economic growth in the background of a relatively deflationary economy. However, despite the clear economic advantages to… Continue

Something is really bugging me about this and I can only call it as I see it. First of all, Gov. Rendell (a self proclaimed
progressive moderate) Is really pushing solar power in the South Western part of PA., 7 members of Acorn have been charged with voters fraud, Penelec is on strike, and Allegheny powers Corp. office is in Greensburg (our local power company) and when asking a field rep. who Allegheny Power gets their power from, he had no idea.He knows he belongs to the local 102 All… Continue

Here is what I wrote for the Open Letter Petition:
To all of our branches of government, and to the media:
All of you have a sacred duty to uphold and protect our constitution. All of you are abdicating that duty!
To the Supreme Court:
The wording in the Bill of Rights is clear and unambiguous. Your duty is to prevent the government from impinging on those rights and freedoms that are inherent to all of us. It seems to me, that if… Continue

On his TV show, Glenn Beck read a letter from an Arizona woman addressed to our leaders. I have never so completely agreed with anyone and I think many in our group will also. Please visit the website http://www.thepetitionsite.com/8/an-open-letter-to-our-nations-leadership, read the letter and sign the petition if you agree.

At the end of the Gulf War in 1991, George HW Bush failed to support the pro-democracy forces that revolted against Saddam Hussein. The result was a brutal massacre and ethnic cleansing and 12 more years of Saddam and another deadly war.
Now, Mr. Obama encourages democracy forces in Iran during his Cairo speech to the Muslim world, then says nothing about the brutal theocratic dictatorship as they brutally suppress all protest.
It is clear that without action by the West –… Continue

The Czars are Coming, the Czars are Here!
The czars are really presidential assistants, who may be hired without FBI background checks or Senate confirmations, and serve at the pleasure of the President. Because they work in the West Wing and directly for the President, they enjoy virtually total immunity from any accountability to the Congress. Supreme Court decisions even immunize them from replying to subpoenas from Congress for documents or testimony, under the claim of executive… Continue

Hello Members of the 9-12 Project of Central Pennsylvania!
First, I wanted to thank everyone for joining this organization, for participating in the Tea Party (and other events), and for waking up to realize that something is wrong. We all joined this group for some reason – to bring about some sort of change in our lives, to try to make a difference in what our government is doing, or maybe just to find a group of like-minded individuals to socialize… Continue

With the approach of June 30th and the end of the state’s fiscal year comes the annual argument in Harrisburg over Pennsylvania’s budget.

Food for thought.
"Although the Tea Party name adopted by the protesters evokes images of the American Revolution, there is, at present, no basis for comparison. The American Revolution was fundamentally an intellectual movement–a revolt against the anti-freedom ideas motivating Britain’s treatment of the colonists, and, most importantly, a revolt for the idea of individual rights. These radical new ideas about what government should and should not consist of were enshrined by… Continue
