Superstitions 9.12 Tea Party Patriots Weekly Meeting – 10/25/12

The Superstitions 9.12 Tea Party Patriots (http://superstition912teapartypatriots.ning.com/) held their regular weekly meeting at the Feedbag’ Restaurant in Apache Junction on Thursday at 6:30 PM with Bill Bish facilitating.

Bill introduced Todd House, Candidate for County Supervisor – District 5 (http://www.houseforsupervisor.com/) who spoke about the successful Annual Harvest Fall Festival which raised a good amount for the Paws4Life group as well as collecting over 200 lbs of food for people and over 800 lbs of food for animals along with serving an excellent meal.  Todd mentioned he is still looking for poll watchers for the General Election – anyone who wants to help please contact him.  Todd also spoke about the Fire Board and some of the election activities taking place.

Bill talked about a group he is starting called the Arizona Constitution Committee.  The mission is to hold our elected officials accountable by monitoring their activities and informing them of our desire that they adhere to Constitutional principles and practice fiscal responsibility.  This would be done via an email group that shares information on legislative actions that need response and contacts their legislative representative regarding legislation being considered, outdated and/or unconstitutional legislation and reducing the size and scope of government.

Guest speaker was Jo Darling of the Red Mountain Tea Party of East Mesa (http://www.redmountainteaparty.com/).  She shared pictures she took on her recent trip to Europe where she visited several of the many of the War Memorials and cemeteries dedicated to the US soldiers who fought and died in Europe.  Jo gave an excellent speech on the construction and meaning of the memorials as well as an instructive talk on current events and attitudes in Europe.    – PLH

WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON?

The video below aired on Phoenix TV station KPHO on October 19th just before 3:30 in the afternoon.  If you look at the bottom of the screen you will see that the results of the Presidential Election are being shown.  They show Obama winning by a small margin – just enough to appear plausible.  The problem is, the election is not until November 6th.  WHAT IS GOING ON HERE???

Jill Broussard Endorsements

For Immediate Release

Senators Steve Smith and Al Melvin Endorse Jill Broussard for Pinal County School Superintendent

Pinal County, Arizona – Today, Arizona State Senators Steve Smith and Al Melvin endorsed Jill Broussard’s bid for Pinal County School Superintendent. The two who are part of the new LD 11 district are running as a team along with Adam Kwasman. The two Senators released a joint statement regarding Jill and her candidacy. “We are proud to support Jill Broussard, we know she will be a champion for our children and help to derail the policies which have been wasting our tax money by ineffective spending. It is time for fiscal responsibility to exist in Pinal County and we believe Jill will be effective in reducing wasteful spending in education while improving education quality. As Senators we have fought to stop cuts to education spending, but it is up to the officials at the local level to make sure that your tax dollars are well spent. Please join us in supporting Jill Broussard for Pinal County School Superintendent on your ballot and restore integrity and trust to our education system.” – Senators Steve Smith & Al Melvin.

Jill is honored to have the endorsement of the two well respected Senators, and looks forward to working with them to make sure that our children receive the high quality education they deserve. She released the following statement. “I am truly blessed to have the endorsement of our fine Senators. The current Pinal County School Superintendent spends nearly $25,000 per student per year in her schools and shows no positive results. It is outrageous when only 37% of that money actually makes it to classroom instruction. I have a new direction of fiscal responsibility and actually setting educational goals. I pledge to the citizens that their children will get a better education, and I will always do it with the taxpayer in mind.”

About Jill Broussard: Jill is the Republican Candidate for Pinal County School Superintendent. She is a mother of two children, a military wife, and a teacher. She has been a resident of Pinal County since 2003 and currently resides in San Tan Valley. She is a graduate of Arizona State University and has taught as EDUPRISE Charter School.

Vote NO on Prop, 204

Header
New poll shows the Prop 204 tax hike is losing!

AFP-Arizona activists can help defeat it!

Dear Arizona Taxpayer,

With barely two weeks left until Election Day, we must keep running until we cross the finish line.

Using Arizona’s children as a shield for their special-interest boondoggles, proponents of Proposition 204 want to take a billion dollars a year from Arizona families — at a time when many families are still struggling and breadwinners are out of work.

Prop 204 boosters have told voters that the tax is necessary to aid an underfunded education system, even though overall education spending in Arizona has increased over 60 percent during the past decade.

According to a new report by the Goldwater Institute, per-pupil spending in Arizona has increased by 9 percent in real terms over the past decade — even after recent budget cuts!  And the Arizona education system now puts a smaller proportion of available funds into the classroom than it did before the massive Prop 301 education tax was passed in 2000.

The good news is that the spending lobby’s tactics may be failing.  recent poll suggests that a majority of Arizonans now understands that a massive tax increase is not the right move for our state’s fragile economy. Throwing more money at the education bureaucracy isn’t the right path forward for our education system.  Our children and our classroom teachers need real reform.

What can YOU do to make sure that Prop 204 is defeated?

Here are some of the many ways you can get involved:

·        You can host a NO on Prop 204 speaker at your civic group.

·        You can drop off literature at the homes of voters in your precinct.

·        You can place a NO on Prop 204 yard sign on your front lawn

·       You can distribute NO on Prop 204 signs to your neighbors.

·        You can do what I did, and use glass paint to write “NO on Prop 204! Tax hikes will not fix our schools!” on the back window of your car…

AFP-Arizona hopes you will continue to stand with us in the fight to defeat Proposition 204! To get more involved in this effort, please contact Bill Fathauer at 480-332-0477 or bfathauer@afphq.org and learn more at www.votenoon204.com.

Superstitions 9.12 Tea Party Patriots Weekly Meeting – 10/18/12

The Superstitions 9.12 Tea Party Patriots (http://superstition912teapartypatriots.ning.com/) held their regular weekly meeting at the Feedbag’ Restaurant in Apache Junction on Thursday at 6:30 PM with Bill Bish facilitating.

Guest Speaker Ty Morgan, candidate for Pinal County Sheriff (http://morganforsheriff.net/) has been a law enforcement officer in Pinal County for over thirty years, living and working in the county.  He wants to pass our children a world morally and ethically better than what we received and feels the current Sheriff is deficient in these areas.  Mr. Morgan doesn’t question the Sheriff’s choice of lifestyle but the Sheriff’s choosing to post risqué pictures of on the internet raises serious questions about his professional judgment.     What would happen to any other law enforcement officer if they did this?  Sheriff Babeu was Arizona Post certified when he became Sheriff but let his certification lapse after being elected (certification is not required for Sheriffs).  Mr. Morgan questioned whether the Sheriff would be certified, or could keep certification, under the current circumstances.

Mr. Morgan has significantly more time and experience as a law officer then either of his opponents.  In addition, he is the only one with experience in both urban and rural law enforcement and understands the varied approaches and needs of each.  He questions the decision to cover San Tan Valley with fewer officers, working back-to-back twelve hour shifts instead of their former overlapping ten hour shifts.  The extra officers were not put back to work in Pinal County but as Border units while the remaining officers stretch to service the community.  There are no School Resource Officers in the schools -SRO’s are invaluable, especially in high risk schools for making a presence, building communications with the children, assisting the staff and being available for calls that then don’t require pulling officers from community patrol and service.  Mr. Morgan is also concerned about the ratio and pay range of administrative staff, the number and pay of which has doubled under the current Sheriff.

Audience questions included Mr. Morgan’s feelings on an armed populace to which he replied he supports the Second Amendment and the right of people to defend themselves, from each other and an overreaching Government if needed.  Regarding the two helicopters purchased by the current Sheriff, Mr. Morgan said he’s inclined to get rid of them but would have to consider the whole issue before being certain.  The tent city concept is one Mr. Morgan favors, given the proper equipment and infrastructure – he mentioned he had considerable experience working with prisoners in jails and prisons.  Regarding illegal immigration and drug control at the border, Mr. Morgan stated law enforcement doesn’t determine the laws, they enforce laws as given to them and should do so fairly and ethically – he is also the only candidate that is a trained Immigration Enforcement Officer.

Bill Bish mentioned a group out of Texas called ‘The Constitutional Defenders of Texas’ (http://constitutionaldefendersoftexas.com/) and that there is a push to start a similar group in Arizona.  Judy Novalsky and Brenda Gifford spoke on issues in the Fire Board elections and Jeff Struble gave a report on the City Council meeting especially regarding the Sewer Board investigations and appointment of board members in general.  – PLH

I grew up in the Midwest but at age 13 moved to New York State with my Mom and Dad.  My Dad was a School Teacher and he was pretty good at it but the Midwest certainly was not paying what he was worth.  So, he applied for teaching positions in New York State, where teachers made a very decent salary.  Their school systems were among the best in the Nation.  They looked at his qualifications and gladly invited him aboard. So we moved there and I finished Junior High School and High School there and had to take Regents examinations in order to get my high school diploma.  I didn’t think this was a big deal because everybody else had to also.  And it was sad, but amazing, because back in those days if ya didn’t pass, ya didn’t graduate.

>>>FAST FORWARD>>>  40 years.  I have retired from my job and I have moved to Arizona because I love the scenery, I love the climate, and I love their views toward the Second Amendment.  Life is good – I am driving home On January 1st with with the windows down in my truck thinking how this would blow their minds back in Long Island.  And I continue in my reverie of Arizona appreciation until one day when I talk to a recent high school graduate of the Arizona School System.   He is visibly upset and he asks me a question.  He says. “My car insurance payment is due.  It is $395.00.  I just got my paycheck and it is $415.00,  How much will I have left?”  I thought he was kidding me, but he wasn’t.

Superstitions 9.12 Tea Party Patriots Weekly Meeting – 10/11/12

The Superstitions 9.12 Tea Party Patriots (http://superstition912teapartypatriots.ning.com/) held their regular weekly meeting at the Feedbag’ Restaurant in Apache Junction on Thursday at 6:30 PM with Bill Bish facilitating the meeting.

Bill spoke briefly, commenting on how, in some cases, we are voting for the lesser of two evils when we vote for a candidate to avoid a worse choice.  Despite that, we still have the ability and responsibility to monitor and respond to an office holder’s behavior in office – our influence does not end upon election.  Brenda Gifford spoke about the Harvest Festival Fundraiser for Paws4Life.  Ticket sales are down and Tuni House, who has been the indomitable leader of Paw4Life for several years, is dealing with medical problems and unable to do her usual amount of community outreach.   Paws4Life does outstanding work matching and/or training service dogs, dog rescue and teens at risk programs.   Brenda requested that anyone who can attend and encourage your friends and neighbors to support the organization (more information on the Festival is here:  http://pinalcountypeople.com/2012/10/09/harvest-festival-fundraiser-for-paws4life-october-20th/).

Guest Speaker for the evening was Matt Salmon, candidate for US Congressional Representative, Fifth District (http://www.salmonforcongress.com/).  Due to redistricting, most of the attending members are no longer in Mr. Salmon’s current district but are still strongly supportive of the conservative message Mr. Salmon consistently promotes in his life and civil service.  Mr. Salmon, when elected, intends to be a representative not only for his District but also for Arizona in general.  Mr. Salmon is a strong supporter of Constitutional government and disappointed in the number of Congressmen who talk the Constitution but do not vote it.  He hopes to use his prior experience (Representative 1994-2000) to provide some leadership and strength to the other Constitution based Representatives that are struggling, against great pressure, to maintain their principles in the current Congress.  Mr. Salmon left his first Congressional seat after three terms, keeping the promise he made when first running.   When he left, there was a Republican President and Congress and hope for a continuing conservative stewardship in government.  He was disappointed to see Republicans squander their opportunities and this time Mr. Salmon isn’t promising limited terms but to work (voter’s willing) until the country is returned to a solid commonsense basis again.  Issues to be addressed include returning Social Security to a fully funded trust again, repealing Obama Care, fixing Medicare (and returning it to the states where it belongs along with welfare programs), closing several Federal departments that have no Constitutional mandate such as Education, Commerce, Energy and EPA.  The Federal government needs to return to its purpose – to protect the borders, the states from foreign invasion and equity between the states.  The Constitutional Welfare and Commerce clauses have a long history of being misused to let Federal Government seize powers they were never allocated or intended to have.   Mr. Salmon would like to see a Fair Tax implemented (and the end of the IRS) that applies once, at the point of purchase, of all new goods and services for personal consumption.  The Federal government should not bailout or create businesses and regarding government spending, Mr. Salmon likes the Romney’s rule – is it worth borrowing money from China to pay for it?  The UN also is a questionable proposition – while the US pays a third of its cost they get back very little besides contempt and obstruction.

Judy Novalsky suggest those who have seen, or plan on seeing, 2016: Obama’s America to read the book the movie was based upon ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage‘ (2010); it’s even better than the movie.  Other suggested reading is The Law by Frédéric Bastiat.  Bill Bish reminded everyone that Shane Krauser’s radio show is on Saturday at 5:00 pm (http://www.libertystormradio.com/) and that despite the mainstream media’s desperate efforts to pronounce the lingering death of the Tea Party movement, the Tea Parties are alive and well. – PLH
