This Week's Rambling Thoughts

Hide the women and children!! 

Rumor has it that there was a large gathering of radical extremists here in Orlando yesterday.  It’s almost certain that the group was plotting on how to be more effective domestic terrorists.  Who knows what else they were up to, we can only hope that the Eric Holder Justice Dept. had infiltrators in the group to rein in this threat to American society.

Actually, what took place yesterday was a ‘Liberty Summit’, held for tea party leaders throughout the state.  The gathering was organized by Tom Gaitens, Florida Director of FreedomWorks, and included approximately 70 tea party movement leaders from all corners of the state.  (Question to self; does Florida actually have corners?) 

The meeting was primarily focused on the upcoming elections and on ways the movement can be more effective in ensuring successful results.  It was encouraging to see the tea party leaders looking beyond the rallies and protests, which are important, and working together to develope a strategy in the upcoming electoral process.

As for hiding the women and children, that’s somewhat of an outdated cliche, as some of the fiercest opponents to the Progressive agenda that I’ve seen have been women! 

Local patriots attending yesterday’s summit include Jason Hoyt, Barbara Seidenberg and your humble correspondent.

BTW, if you happen to see me out and about in the community this coming week, don’t be alarmed by the tread marks on my back.  It just so happens that I was run over both literally and figuratively this past week!  I was involved in an actual fender bender, where the vehicle behind me ran into the back of my vehicle, and, was thrown under the bus on another matter.  I fully understand that by putting myself out in the public arena, I open myself up to attacks and criticism from those who oppose my point of view, which I accept.  However, when it comes from those who are supposed to be on the same side, well, it makes it all the more disheartening.  Excuse me for a sec, while I go channel the Rev. Jeremiah Wright…

The Florida Tea Party political party seemd to be rolling out an interesting strategy…as most are already aware, the FTP is not part of the tea party movement, nor does it have the support of any of the leaders throughout the state.  Most see this endeavor as a clear and present danger to the anticipated success in November, and have been very ardent in pointing this out to the general public.  Well, it now appears that the leadership of the FTP are espousing the same line!  The idea appears to be to elevate themselves above those who make up the movement by disparaging these brave patriots as being unfocused and standing in the way of progress, then present the FTP as a better alternative.  One would think they’d learn from the Democrats that it’s not an effective strategy to attack the tea party movement.

Speaking of the Democrats, it’s eery how the tactics of the Florida Tea Party political party seem to mirror our Progressive friends across the isle.  It’s almost as if…the FTP is being coached by…Hey, I’m just saying!

As for rumors, there’s a ‘Candidate Eat & Greet’ being held this coming Tuesday by the newly formed West Orlando Tea Party, and word is that the elusive Dan Webster is going to be there.  Since declaring for the D8 congressional race, Mr. Webster seems to have gone to ground, rarely being seen in the community.  Your guess is a good as mine as to why this has been the case.  The ‘Eat & Greet’ event is open to the public and details can be found at www.westorlandoteaparty.org

It appears that a topsy-turvy world is beginning to right itself, somewhat…Marco Rubio is again out in front of Charlie Crist in the U.S. Senate Race!  The anticipated ‘bounce’ that Crist enjoyed didn’t last very long.  Latest numbers have Rubio leading Crist 39% to 31%, with some other candidate from a different party, can’t seem to recall his name…bringing up the rear.

There were some encouraging results from last Tuesday’s elections – the tea party favorite in Kentucky, Rand Paul, easily won the primary election over a candidate that was endorsed by the Republic Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell, and, ‘Snarlin’ Arlen Spector lost in his primary.  Both clear and continuing signs that the American people have grown tired of ‘establishment’ politicians that refuse to show the courage and leadership necessary to truly take on the challenges we face.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who was outraged that the Obama administration allowed the President of Mexico to criticize Arizona from the House floor to a joint session of Congress.  It’s tough enough to have to listen to your own President run your country down, but, it’s a whole different level when it’s coming from a foreign head of state in the U.S. Congress – who’s primarily responsible for the problem to begin with! 

And, a show of hands as to how many of you are surprised the Progressive Democrats gave Mexico’s President Calderon a standing ovation…
