MI4CS Process

The MI4CS process is, rightfully so, being questioned. I wish to sincerely thank Pete Konetchy and those who do articulately question this process. There have been very good cogent opinions, One of the biggest is that we don't need another organization telling the Tea Party who to vote for. Please consider that if you belong to a Tea Party and need some to tell you how to vote you are probably in the wrong club. We, who have joined and participate, OF OUR OWN FREE WILL, in MI4CS are…

Let voice be heard (Letter to the editor, by Tim Lintz, LCTPP)

Lapeer Community Schools will hold a public hearing on November 17 (Thursday), at the Lapeer Community Schools Administration and Services Center, (250 Second St.) at 7 p.m. Among the issues being heard is a change to the current by-laws extending the term of office for members of the Board of Education from a term of four years to six years.

Many of the citizens of our community are not aware of this proposed change. At first thought it may appear to be a cost savings to limit…

Michigan Senate votes to start the implementation of Obamacare

  Last week the Michigan Senate voted to approve the Health Care exchange that is required under Obamacare. Last week, several leaders from many different Tea Party groups. The bills sponsor was Sen. Jim Marleau. He was in attendance at this meeting.

  We were told that this bill had to be passed. That if we passed this bill, we would get to regulate the coverage for abortion under Obamacare. That the Conservative thing for Republicans to do was to keep local control over what we…

The God and Country Education Project

 

I guarantee to you folks that the kids that we see who are in the process of completely soiling the tenants of our Western Civilization are a products of the government run school systems, kindergarten thru grad school. What do we do?

 

My board and I have been involved in the charter school movement pretty much since its inception. We had a de-briefing following a new school project and the typical fight against the status quo in Durham, NC several years ago. At that…

Lapeer County Tea Party Patriots Response to the County Press Wall Street Protest Editorial

The Lapeer County Tea Party Patriots Leadership, in response to a recent County Press editorial, makes the following statements. First, we categorically reject the notion that the comparison of the Tea Party Movement to the Occupy Wall Street Protestors is in any way significantly similar. The small number of protestors, the nature of the protest, the obvious organizational and financial support from specific radical groups, the lack of specific values and issues, the disregard for…

Tea Party is the foundation for change (County Press Viewpoint)

 

The debate over raising the debt ceiling and the subsequent downgrade of the credit rating of the United States has given rise to certain commentary that, while interesting, is fallacious. I have heard and read what essentially amounts to blaming both political parties. If one argues that both political parties contributed to the creating of the unsustainable debt, it is a fair argument.

Both parties spent money like a sailor on shore leave. However, I believe it is not…

Response to local misinformation in the Lapeer County Press

  In Wednesday's edition of The County Press, Lynnette Burns stated that she hoped the Tea Partiers were happy with themselves and that the rich are richer and she is poorer.  Well Lynnette, I hate to tell you but after the recent passage of the “debt crisis legislation”, we are ALL poorer.  This legislation was not a win for anybody except those that are not truly serious about moving this country out of debt and onto a path of economic…

Make pie better

(From the County Press"In Your Words" page and Lapeer Tea Party member Roger L. Ruhmann )

Setting political garble aside, we sometimes find that simple solutions are not without merit and work just fine. Every household and business at one time or another is forced to examine their books (so to speak) and turn-around management firms are experts in finding solutions to either a negative or eroding bottom financial lines.
