Stand Strong Mike Rowe!

Mike Rowe started an outstanding program, to encourage the youth in America to work hard and make something of themselves. In it he praises work ethic, read more about his S.W.E.A.T. program. After appearing on the Glenn Beck Program Mike Rowe was criticized through social media. Here is Mike’s Response to a critic…

Well, hi there, Shannon – and a pleasant good morning to you too!

If you want a detailed answer to your question, please take a moment to read my earlier reply to Bob Reidel, another crestfallen soul who couldn’t reconcile my association with a TV host that he personally despised. As you read it (out loud, if possible, and in a public place), kindly replace the words “Bob Reidel” with “Shannon K. Walsh,” and “Bill Maher” with “Glenn Beck.” But prepare yourself – you might be forced to conclude that my true objective here has little to do with winning or losing your approval.As for your personal characterization of Glenn Beck, I can only assume you have information not available to me. In my time with him, I saw nothing “horrible, psychotic, hateful, or nasty.” I smelled no burning sulphur, no smoldering brimstone, and saw no sign of cloven hooves.To the contrary, I found a very passionate guy who employs about 300 people, works his butt off, and puts his money where his mouth is. Do we agree on everything? Of course not. Am I “disappointed” by that fact? Not at all. The real question, Shannon, is … why are you?

To be clear, I’m not here to tell you what to think or whom to hate. Like everyone else, you’re free to pick your devils, choose your angels, and attach the horns and halos accordingly.

But the guts of your question – even without all the name-calling and acrimony – reveal the essence of what’s broken in our country. You want to know “how I can associate” with someone you don’t like? The short answer is, how can I not? How are we ever going to accomplish anything in this incredibly divisive time if we associate only with people that we don’t disagree with?

We the People…Exposing Common Core

First grade lessons encouraging children to use emotional words to obtain their objectives.
They even go so far as to give an assignment to help children use words so that parents will listen to their demands.

This makes me question the priories in this curriculum.
Stunning video showing examples of suggestive reading material for common core. Common core is using pamphlets that express the facts of global warming and expressing when the United Nations is so important.

Don’t forget a pamphlet on a communist group in the Midwest.
Common Core in 3 minutes

Guns don’t kill people Fathers with pretty daughters do. It is defiantly a conversational piece and I thought I would share it with everyone under the liberty tree. I found it in a small shop, but amazon carries it (of course).

Mount Pleasant Tea Party…Video

I have mentioned in a previous post the Mount Pleasant tea party meeting that I attended. I am just learning how to make videos :) Above is my first, unfortunately I had to use all photos with the audio, because like the amateur that I am, I took video with my Canon in portrait, not landscape. By the way, that is not a quick flip on the computer (oops).

Emery W. McClendonHope you enjoy the video and I hope you get the opportunity to hear a speech by Emery McClendon in person someday. Thanks to Cindy Gamrat for putting on a great event!

Mount Pleasant Tea Party Meeting…

This past Saturday, 300 tea party/campaign for liberty leaders, gathered at the soaring eagle in Mount Pleasant, MI. The attendees represented over 50 grassroots groups from across the state of Michigan.
Don't tread on me
You could feel the liberty movement throughout the room.

Taking the field

The entire day was packed with speakers covering many facets of the movement. Youth liberty groups shared their growth over the past year, in high schools and college campuses. Speakers encouraged participation in precinct delegate positions and outlined how to be effective in the role of activism.

Over ten tea party Michigan members stepped up and are running as candidates in the upcoming 2014 elections. It was exciting to hear the passion and enthusiasm they had for returning this country to its founding principles.

All speakers brought hope and optimism. They gave leaders perspective on how far the movement has come and how close the liberty movement is to obtaining their objectives.

The favorite speaker of the day, had to be, the keynote speaker, Emery W. McClendon. He reminded us that we are fighting more than politics, but also the darkness of a socialist agenda. He energized the crowd by challenging them to take the field and win our country back!

Emery W. McClendon

I strongly encourage you to attend a tea party event. I left refreshed and optimistic. I could feel how alive the movement in Michigan is and how close we are to changing the face politics. I was reminded that I am not the only one who is working to restore this great country. Please become a precinct delegate, you have a chance to be a part of history!
