Dear Readers: I must admit, I am worried sick that “Deem and Pass” is going to be a template for the passage of all future legislation — not matter how heinous — from now until November. Amnesty. Cap-and-Trade. It’s all on the table, despite the efforts of the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition, Tea Party Patriots, and all other organizations to counter this inanity.
I am a registered Democrat, and I want none of what the current administration has to offer. Via Gateway Pundit, I want to offer my readers a glimpse at another Blue Dog: Blue Dog Leader Says “Slaughter Solution” Is “Poison” (Audio) :
The co-chairwoman of the Blue Dog Coalition of the US House told reporters yesterday that the “Slaughter Solution” is “poison.” Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (D-S.D.), who is a “firm no” on the bill itself, said the process Democrats are considering would spell disaster for the climate in Congress.
As many of your know, Californians in the Central Valley have had the water to their farms shut-off to protect an invasive fish species — creating massive unemployment in the region and dust-bowl conditions. It seems that Pelosi has found the price for two of our congressional representatives in the region: turning the spigot back on (and, interestingly, turning their backs on the environmentalists among their numbers). From Sarah Bond:
Add California Congressmen Costa & Cardoza to the contact list. They are in jeopardy of having their votes swayed by a recent water deal for the Central Valley (while we desperately need that water, the timing of the relief is suspect)

Shameful. Just shameful.
The good news for Californians is that the initiative to repeal our State’s Version of Cap&Trade (aka AB-32, The Global Warming Solutions Acts) has gone through and the petition drive has begun. Californians can click here to get a petition to sign and pass around. Fellow Americans can click HERE to help us turn back this economy-killer (if you don’t, dissatisfied Californians will flock to your state — do you want that?) 🙂

For blanket faxing use American Voice at http://americanvoice.com.although their site was down this morning which we take as a sign that you are all OVERWHELMING THE SYSTEM!!! Keep it up, Patriots!!!
In a nutshell: Both Obamacare and CA Cap&Trade will kill jobs, liberty, and fundamental Constitutional principles. Go to DC, if you can. Go to a local Tea Party. Go to an event filled with Constitution-respecting patriots (North County Conservatives are hosting a Constitution seminar this Saturday in Escondido). Fax. Do something to make the Founders of this country proud.
My favorite quote from my favorite Democrat, Thomas Jefferson.
A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.
I want to give a big FLAMING CAPITALISM welcome to VISTA TEA PARTY PATRIOTS, now listed on the Tea Party Partners roll to the right. We are grateful to have them joining our efforts, as there is so much work to be done.
