Who is theTea Party?

by Leslie Edwards

The main stream press and the administration are trying hard to maginalize the Tea Party Movement, spinning stories about Tea Party Members spitting, threatening and yelling racial slurs at members of congress.  To date, although a $100,000 reward has been offered, no one can produce any proof that any of that ever happened.  In this day of cell phones that talke still pictures and movies, there is always someone to record the incident, if there really was one.

The message of the Tea Party Movement is simple:

Limited Government, Fiscal Responsibility and Free Markets

These are ideas that resonate with most people in America. 

The Tea Party is not is a fringe group of radicals trying to bring down the government.  They do not condone any type of violence or personal attacks.  Attack the person's policies not the person.  They do not support either party.

The Tea Party members on average, are better educated and more successful. Most Tea Party Members have never been politically active.  When citizens understand what is going on with their government, they feel they have to stand up for the three main principles, less government, balanced budgets and capitalism.  The government should not be trying to control the private sector.  More government, less freedom.

Pay attention to what is really going on.  Instead of listening to sound bites, really listen and learn.  I guarantee that if you will listen to Glenn Beck on Fox, daily at 5pm (hurray for DVR) for a week, you will want to get involved too.

Slow Death By Rubber Duck

by Leslie Edwards

Leslie Edwards For years, I have been preaching the dangers of chemicals, artificial hormones, aluminum, plastic, teflon, metals & dyes because I believe they are making people sick and killing them. There are more cancers, alzheimers and other diseases including all the newer immune deficiency diseases.I believe that the dramatic in...crease in childhood cancers, autism and other diseases is the result of changes in baby products. Glass and rubber nippled baby bottles have morphed into cheap plastic bottles that some mothers heat up in the mocrowave, plastic sippy cups, flame retardent, sythetic clothes that are full of chemicals, plastic diapers, plastic parts on cribs, processed foods, plastic toys from China,lead based paint, aluminum cans and cookware and the list goes on and on. It is frustrating that parents are not paying attention. The Book "Death By Rubber Duck" is a great resource. Read this review and sign the petition to get Congress more involved in the issue.http://greenlagirl.com/book-review-slow-death-by-rubber-duck-your-homes-secret-dangers/No one can do it all. If everyone does a little, we can change the world.
