On the other hand, it looks like the Tea Party has made a good showing, and that's a good thing. I'm sorry I wasted my vote for Governor, I just couldn't vote for Whitman.

I've created the Community Outreach Group and thought I would give our community some insight into the Hindu religion as it is one of the oldest upon the face of our earth and our community has been a welcome area to the East Indian culture for as long as I can remember. Please, if you begin to read and feel offended by my ramblings then again, please, skip to the bottom and read the principles that guide this culture and you will see why they belong here. Someone mentioned at the last meeting… Continue

CalPers allowed the Counties, Cities & State to perform the biggest Ponzzi scheme in the history of this nation.
The local Counties & Cities kept raising the anti as to the size of the Pensions and the number of years required on the job to attain the Maximum retirement benefits.
I would ask CalPers to refute the following statement then ask yourself (reader) if he or she has the same future potential.
Any person working for any City or County in… Continue

Had a good turn out. Probably 40+ people there. Thanks to people of the Redding group for coming and leading the way to Action Groups. Saw some new faces in the crowd.
Erin did a great job leading the group into specific areas of interest and giving examples of how it worked out for her group.
More people were vocal last night which I think was good, even though at some times I couldn't hear ;-)
Someone mentioned a library where we can exchange books and that's… Continue

I was really impressed by the cogency and direction of this first SBTPP meeting. It was nearly absent of politics, mostly conservative with fresh ideas and new directions.
I did have some concerns about a Redding speaker as the last time I tied up with someone from the north corridor (The Constitutional Patriots - over 1/4 century ago), they were ready to take back our government by force it need be. Not so this time. This Redding speaker, Erin Ryan, was concise with good examples of… Continue
