How Senoia Tea Party Patriots stole the parade

All across the nation, Tea Party activists are finding new ways to reach our fellow countrymen. In Sharpsburg, Georgia, a Tea Party Patriots group built a boat to show their patriotism. It was so good, they developed a slide show of how they put it together, and the boat float received two awards at two parades last year. I spoke with Senoia Tea Party coordinator Joe Cannin earlier this week about the float’s success: Dustin Siggins: What is your group? Joe Cannin: We’re in Georgia. My group is over 60 members. I’m in a city, so my draw is basically the residential areas of Senoia and Sharpsburg. We work regularly with the Fayette ...

Help your fellow Americans know what’s in the Senate’s immigration bill

This morning, the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” put forth its first draft of the 800+ page immigration bill.

No one person or organization can effectively look through a bill this big and catch everything, especially not in the rushed time frame the Gang of Eight is giving the American people. As the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee noted in a letter to Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, the 1986 immigration law was created over a period of several years, including 100 hours of hearings and 300 witnesses. Such an important and ...
