Tea Party events coming April 15 to PTC and Newnan

This time last year a small handful of people in Fayette and Coweta counties decided to mirror similar efforts planned across America by protesting their dissatisfaction with the federal government at Tea Party rallies on April 15. Hundreds attended the local rallies.

Now with local mailing lists totaling a few thousand, the South Atlanta Tea Party Patriots, the Coweta Tea Party and the Fayette/Coweta 9.12 Patriots will be holding events again this year on April 15 in Peachtree City and Newnan.

The Peachtree City event will be held from 12-1:30 p.m. at Drake Field adjacent to Peachtree City Hall and Lake Peachtree. The event will feature radio talk show host Herman Cain.

The 2010 Tax Day Rally in Newnan will be held at Greenville Park from 12-1:30 p.m. The rally will kick off with live music followed by speaker Virginia Galloway, state Director for Americans for Prosperity, and comments from State Representative Billy Horne, State Senator Mitch Seabaugh and local businessman Rob Brass. Attendees are encouraged to bring tasteful protest signs and flags.

Fayette County’s South Atlanta Tea Party is the new name for the Southern Crescent Tea Party Patriots. The non-profit South Atlanta Tea Party is a grassroots non-partisan group concerned with the direction the country is headed. For more information on the organization and transportation to the rally later April 15 in Atlanta visit www.southatlantateaparty.org

The Coweta Tea Party is a non-partisan, non-profit social welfare organization dedicated to furthering the common good and general welfare of the people of the United States. CTP furthers this goal by educating the public and promoting the principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets. CTP has not endorsed candidates for public office. Visit www.cowetateaparty.org for information on the organization and the Atlanta rally April 15.

The Fayette-Coweta 9.12 Patriots is a grassroots non-partisan organization of fiscally and socially conservative citizens dedicated to returning America to its founding constitutional principles. For more information visit www.fc912patriots.com.

Presidential election 2008 - Obama 53% McCain - 46%

Hmmmm. All the white people didn't vote for McCain. Americans voted for both and Obama won. 90+% of blacks voted for Obama - not because he was Black, but because the Republicans made it very obvious that they were using the 'southern' strategy to entice the Republican base. Let's move on.

hutch866's picture

You're right, I should have let your bogus statistic stand, like the last time (rolling eyes). My bad. I never said all the white people voted for McCain, but you did say that 70% of white people voted for Obama. You keep making up your stats and I'll keep pointing out where you are wrong.

I yam what I yam

I'll be happy to return the favor. That will keep us both honest.

hutch866's picture

Feel free to point out anywhere on here I've been dishonest. EVER!!!! I'd like to see it.

I yam what I yam

Wow! Congratulations - you've never been wrong. There is a distinction between 'wrong' and dishonest. I will take you at your word that you've never been dishonest. OK?

hutch866's picture

You were the one who brought up honesty, not me. You're right there is a distinction between wrong and dishonest. I told you, you were wrong, you implied I was dishonest. That's the difference between us. I said show me anywhere on here I've been dishonest, not wrong, but dishonest.

I yam what I yam

A business that experiences a slump re-evaluates, plans, and then spends/cuts to improve the business. To stop all spending is to close down the business. Not a very difficult 'truth' to comprehend. We are not going to shut down our country. As far as 'racism'- reread my comments. For all of the beauty of our country and its history - it is a racist country. We have improved immensely - and I am extremely proud of our progress in this area. I am in the process of reading your suggested references - Newsweek's <strong>We Are All Socialists Now</strong> and The Nation's 2006 article <strong>The Left Needs More Socialism.</strong> When was the last time you read these particular articles? What is the 'truth' that you want me to garner from the reading?

S. Lindsey's picture

I have to assume you are responding to both post #2 & #4..

No one is advocating a complete shut down of spending where you get that is unknown, however every businessman knows one simple fact.. Revenue (Sales) go down then so must spending. That's a hard fact.

Your comment "For all of the beauty of our country and its history - it is a racist country." amazes me and I whole heartedly REJECT that idea. That statement paints EVERY citizen as a racist from BIRTH and that is simply not factual.

Are there racist? YES

Are there people afraid of the number 13? YES

Does that mean all Americans are Triskaidekaphobians? NO

So your blanket statement that America is a RACIST country is uninformed and biased at best at worst reflective.

As to the articles.. Read them both when they came out that's why I had the link to them.. Both read again before linked to you.. Why?

btw.. No truth to be discovered just information.. Subjective proof of a link from Liberals to Progressives to Socialism.

Accepted as information. Thanks.

America was founded on principled words/ideas - and in some colonies, racist practices. The United States is admired as a country where persons don't belong to a class/caste (by-law today) - and can achieve greatness/success based on their hard work. The United States is also known for its history of the racist practice of 'slavery' and 'Jim Crow' - an Apartheid system based on the color of ones skin. I respect your whole-heartedness in denying that our country is 'racist' - but I ask you to please be realistic. Stating that the United States is racist certainly does not mean that all of the citizens of this great country are racists - but come on Lindsey - we still have racist practices in this country. You were among those who decried 'reverse racism' - which did/does exist – as does racism. Why deny the existence of racism? Instead, we should be proud that we no longer allow this to be an accepted practice.

S. Lindsey's picture

I would like to see your source or (s) of America;s foundation of Racism.

But I know it a touchy subject so if you don't produce them I understand. You don't question a persons Religion.

I will just disagree that America was FOUNDED on RACISM.. Personally I think it was founded on FREEDOM, but that's just me..

Yes DM Racism exist.. You hav eWhites that hate Blacks.. Blacks that hate the Asians.. Asian that hate the Mexicans.. Mexicans that hate well all of us.. It is the way of the WORLD.. Slavery still exist today.. I mean the real kind not the Mental or Economic kind.

http://www.anti-slaverysociety.addr.com/toc.htm

It still occurs all over the World.. Personally I would rather focus our attention there then some ill perceived shadows of it here..

That's way the Race Baiter's have pushed too hard and too far. Racism is yelled at everything.. It's not all racism it might be their just not qualified..

Racism is screamed to shut people up if they are saying things that others do not want to hear..

Look at the ones that yelled Racist if you disagreed with Obama..

""I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he's African American," Carter said. The Republican party today issued a denial, saying Carter was "flat-out wrong" and that opposition was not because of Obama's skin colour but his policies"Jimmy Carter

It could not be you had a real philosophical difference.. no it was RACISM.

Well anyway this is a debate that will NEVER be settled. The issue must stay alive. Certain peoples livelihood depends on it..

"Whoever claims the right to redistribute the wealth produced by others is claiming the right to treat human beings as chattel."

Some people cry "racism" at every turn because it is the only crutch that they have left. They will always use it when they know that they have lost the argument.

<cite>It still occurs all over the World.. Personally I would rather focus our attention there then some ill perceived shadows of it here.</cite>

Ill perceived shadows????? Certainly not the 'slavery' of years ago - but Lindsey you cannot be unaware of the Chinese/Korean slave trade that exists in this country? (This is not the place for this discussion) It is commonly noted that the 'new' slave in the United States is the Hispanic - except he is paid (illegally). If these were ill-conceived shadows - why the cry of 'reverse racism'?

<cite>I will just disagree that America was FOUNDED on RACISM.. Personally I think it was founded on FREEDOM, but that's just me.</cite>
When the Pilgrims landed - and the Indians and Pilgrims shared a meal - if the relationship had remained at that, I would agree with you. But I certainly don't have to tell you about the historical turn of events that ended that peaceful relationship. Oh - and when cotton, and rice, and tobacco became profitable for certain colonies, some sub-humans were imported to work those crops - as slaves. Some folk remained free, others took a walk, and others worked the fields without the luxury of freedom.

My religion has very little to do with the factual history of the United States. My religion focuses on my spiritual perception of life. . . and that perception is that we are all reflections of God. We all reflect love, spirit, soul, principle, life, truth, and Mind. I’m proud that Americans have taken the path of correcting past mistakes – and this country will continue to strive to live up to the words of freedom, liberty and justice for all.

OK - we disagree. Thanks for the information regarding perceptions of socialism. Nite! :-)

S. Lindsey's picture

I am just going to say this there were many if not most states that did not have SLAVES. They created an economy w/o them.. So again I will say the Foundation was laid w/o racism..

You don't have to be an Indian to experience it. Now if you say the Country was founded on CONFLICT between people of differing backgrounds.. I would agree. But also there was much agreement and co-operation so unless you have a sourced info as to percentages and State Populations that owned slaves.. then I will still have to disagree.

"Whoever claims the right to redistribute the wealth produced by others is claiming the right to treat human beings as chattel."

-Ayn Rand

History is history. We have different views - coming from different perspectives. Slavery = conflict between people of differing backgrounds; removing an entire group of people from one part of the country to another = conflict; segregating people based on the color of their skin (this didn't happen only in the south) = conflict. OK, if you say so.
My great, great grandfather was segregated in Philadelphia in the church because of the color of his skin. RACISM in my view. I grant you your view. . but history is history.

1) As long as there are people, we will have racism.

2) Human's are corrupt by nature therefore institutions created by humans will be corrupt.

3) We have a black President (not elected solely by blacks)

4) Your vision of a "perfect" US will never exist and you can't legislate it.

5) I think you need to travel more outside the United States, there you will find truth.

6) To point out a distinction based on skin color is racism.

In the eyes of God and law you are equal to all others. In society it is only your skill and abilities that set you apart from others. Your skills and abilities should reward your life through your labor. To have someone take the fruit of your labor by force and give it to someone else is robbery. Progressives are thieves using law as their gun to steal the fruits of our labor. The Congress and the President are Progressives. To the extent you support their position you empower them to steal.

Please get off the race issue, it doesn’t advance your position and exposes your naïve vision of the world around you.

As a student in college, I envisioned a country where I could travel freely in the US regardless of the color of my skin. There was action and legislation that made that a reality for me today. I no longer have to sit in the back of the bus; there is not a special car for me when I enter the south; - and I'm extremely proud of that reality that so many fought for (black and white) and achieved
I have traveled extensively around the world - and I'm received as an American- not an African-American. I am designated as 'black' or African-American in the United States. SOME humans are corrupt by nature. We put them in jail. You have a very narrow vision of your fellow man. That is a shame. Note: I am on the boards to discuss 'race' - have been since the Clinton administration - and contrary to your belief, the United States has come a long way regarding this issue - but it is still an issue. . . an issue where great progress is still being made daily in this country where meaningful change happens. . . using the strategies of non-violence.

PTC Observer's picture

That's fine, but please re-read my post. I think you are taking "corruption" the wrong way. Maybe, I should say imperfect? You can't put people in jail for being "imperfect", right? I think this how the whole race thing gets started. Corruption as you take it requires us to act on our laws and put people in jail. Anyway, my mistake at wording.

Human's are corrupt and imperfect and there is no changing this. In my youth I was very much involved in non-violent change so I understand what you are saying. We have come a long way, but it will never be perfect. You can't change people's hearts and nature.

As far as I am concerned you are a human being, I don't care if you are a woman or a black. You are equal in the eyes of God and law, the more you focus on your differences the more different you will be. This is counter to our goal, wouldn't you agree?

I think we are more in agreement than disagreement. I was always taught to strive for perfection - the result will be more satisfying than striving for mediocrity. I've witnessed the change in people's hearts, including my own - so I can't agree with you regarding that issue. We both have the same spiritual understanding of who we are - but there would have been no change in law or hearts if my forefathers and I accepted past practices. Being different? - I rejoice in the differences!! World citizens and citizens here in the United States celebrate ‘difference’. You will see that people’s perceptions are often dependent on their life experience - and all people regardless of skin color, gender, religion, etc. do not have the same life experience. It does not hinder understanding when one is exposed to the understanding of another who has a different perception of the same view. . .because of their 'difference'.

I have developed a greater understanding of views that are opposite from mine by reading some of the posts on this blog. Many here have had a very different life experience - which has developed their particular opinion of racism, etc. Just maybe by sharing my experiences and opinions, some will have a better understanding of those who view 'racism' differently than their own view. I focus on the 'who' rather than the 'what'. In my own country, I am still viewed as a black woman - with ancestry from Africa. That is 'what' I am. When I interact with people through words and actions - people find out 'who' I am. The ‘what’ has shaped the world’s reaction/interaction to me – until time is taken to get to know the ‘who’. There are differences in the ‘what’ – that may hinder the attempts to get to know the ‘who’. I feel you are more interested in the ‘who’ – and that gives me hope. The reality is if you saw me on the street 30/40 years ago, you may have reacted to the ‘what’. Today in Fayetteville – I feel that people take the time to get to know the ‘who’ – and I think that is happening all over our country. However, there are those who are still concerned with the ‘what’. So I continue to post, understand, and hope.

I agree - the statement implying that America is a racist country and therefore all Americans are racist is beyond the pale and has absolutely no merit. It is statements such as that one that prove that wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age.

Progress for minorities, workers, women, and the environment did require the active involvement of citizens. But the Federal Government ultimately was the agent needed to secure those advances. Conservatives opposed progress in all those areas. If conservative forces had prevailed, we would still have slavery or segregation, child labor, no 40-hour work week, no women voting, dirtier air and water, no Social Security, no Medicare, and no health care for for all Americans.

The history of conservative positions on these issues is not something that I would brag about. Best keep it a secret.

Only because as a nation of Laws the Congress passes them and ammend the Constitution. Without the will of "we the people" none of those things would have happenned. Once again its because of "we the people" not "we the government".

You better get your facts straight on some things. Democrats were the main obstacles in the face of the Civil Rights act of 1964. In fact, here's your breakdown of the votes on it:

The original House version:

Democratic Party: 152-96 (61%-39%)
Republican Party: 138-34 (80%-20%)

Cloture in the Senate:

Democratic Party: 44-23 (66%-34%)
Republican Party: 27-6 (82%-18%)

The Senate version:

Democratic Party: 46-21 (69%-31%)
Republican Party: 27-6 (82%-18%)

The Senate version, voted on by the House:

Democratic Party: 153-91 (63%-37%)
Republican Party: 136-35 (80%-20%)

In every instance Republican support was higher than the Democrats.

Womens Right to Vote...opposed mostly by Southern Democrats.

Don't try to make it look like the Democrats are superior. The problem is that most of your supporters are to dumb to see what their own party has done to the over the years!

Have you graduated from high school? Your reasoning here - and obvious lack of historical knowledge is pathetic. So many here have tried to explain to you who the Dixie-crats were in the Civil Rights era. READ/RESEARCH/COMPREHEND. You sir - are the one who is exhibiting an ignorance of factual history. (and if you have graduated from High School - no wonder Georgia ranks 48 out of the 50 states in academic achievement. I'm sure you were not educated in Fayette County schools.

PTC Observer's picture

Rather vitriolic aren't you?

In the 1930s, the New Deal under Franklin Delano Roosevelt (a DM hero no doubt), a government/private enterprise realignment occurred. Much of the Democratic Party shifted towards economic intervention but rejected civil rights for blacks. However, white Southern commitments to Jim Crow grew stronger, and were indirectly challenged as two million blacks served in the military during World War II, receiving equal pay in segregated units, and equally entitled to veterans' benefits.

The Dixicrats were a short live party that peaked in 1948, well before the beginnings of the 60’s Civil Rights Movement. The social system in the South became increasingly based on Jim Crow, a combination of legal and informal segregation that made blacks second-class citizens with little or no political power anywhere in the South. The National Democratic Party tacitly supported this in order to preserve the “Solid South”. Thus, the Democrats won in 1948 in both houses and the Presidency against the Dixicrats and the Republicans.

Now here’s the good part, the Republican Party, nominating Tom Dewey of New York in 1944 and 1948, supported civil rights legislation that the Southern Democrats in Congress almost unanimously opposed. Many Democrats in the North decided not to push civil rights as they did not want to be seen as splitting the party over the “colored” question. Nonetheless, the extremists in the South decided to initiate a third party, the Dixiecrats.

Following Truman’s election the Dixiecrat Party fell apart. Though a member of the old Dixiecrat Party is still a member of Congress. Of course he was also a member of the Klan, but no matter, we don't want to have our feelings challenged by the facts.

Hope this clears up the history surrounding the Progressives of the Democrat Party.

Remember DM what I told you about public schools, they only teach what they want you to know, not facts. Public schools have their own agenda, preservation of the system.

It’s too bad an intelligent women like you is not more inquistive.

Don't go by what you think you know, it's likely to be wrong.

I worked through all this with DM before.. She is going to come back Dixiecrats flipped to Republicans and therefore Republicans are Racist.. It's her Mantra.. never mind it's not factual.

It challenges everything she believes in and everything she has invested in.. Her identity is wrapped up in the flag of the Liberal/Progressive Party and any challenge to that ideology will be met with the same thing repeated over and over..

You know the old saying.. Repeat a lie over and over and eventually you began to believe it..

Yes the big lie, if forgot about that. Oh well.

Thank you PTC for sharing the information that confirmed that after the Voting Rights Act was signed, the Democrats lost the 'solid south'. I know that not all Republicans or all Democrats are/are not racist. . .and so do the readers of this blog. PTC needs to read his/her contributions to make sure they are actually supportive of his/her argument. Again, Johnson signed, the south whined - and left the Party of the Democrats.

I must have struck a nerve with you! Yes, that often times happens when one knows the truth yet refuses to admit it. To admit the truth would be to admit the very party you support doesn't have your best interest at heart.

To answer your question, Yes I have graduated high school. I have used the tools I learned there, notice I didn't say facts, to continue my education outside the boundaries of the Public School System. History sure looks different than it did in my textbook (approved by and printed for the Government School System). To say that I am <cite> <strong>"exhibiting an ignorance of factual history"</strong></cite> is really a reflection on your limited education.

Congratulations on graduating from high school. Use your 'tools' to do your own research regarding what happened to the 'southern democrats' after President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act. My education is/was not limited. Learning is a lifelong commitment. What any advanced degree assures the recipient is that there is so much more to learn.

You obviously don't know what a southern democrat was in 1964!

Most, when it came to racism, were just that! Many still are except they now call themselves republican (no, conservative). Even Sonny was a democrat!

PTC Observer's picture

Maybe just maybe the world is complex because the government makes it so.

The role of the government, as I have stated many times, is to:

Protect life, liberty and property FROM the government, other individuals, and other nations' interests.

The government can't give us "rights", we do give the government some money to accomplish its role.

The end of slavery is fundemental to the protection of liberty. If we enslave someone against their will to provide for someone else, then this is wrong and against the concept of liberty. I believe this is what the government is doing now, forcing us use our labor and the payment for it to provide for others. I see no difference in the masters. One is an individual (slave owner) and the other is the state. In both cases people are robbed of their life (there time on earth), liberty (force of law to provide for others), and property (their money).

It is not government's role to steal any of these from their citizens.

We should all be willing to pay taxes to insure government carries out its role. See above.

Hope this clears things up for you.

Just curious....

Where in your copy of the U.S. Constitution do you find that the role of government is to "protect life, liberty, and property", etc? My copy does include liberty but is more expansive in stating the purposes of the Constitution: "...to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity..." The Federal Government has a larger constitutionally based role to play than you seem to believe.

If you equate paying taxes for purposes you object to as slavery, I think our concept of government is so far apart that it is useless for us to argue the point.

The Wedge's picture

The flowery prose of the preamble of the constitution does not really establish anything. Otherwise you could easily say that domestic tranquility is best provided at the tip of a bayonet with dissent stifled. It was pretty tranquil in a gulag and even more so in a mass grave

So you pick and choose which parts of the U.S. Constitution you like. Wonderful.

Domestic Tranquility does not mean bayonets, gulags, or mass graves.

Perhaps less fear mongering from the Right would contribute to our domestic tranquility.

lion

PTC Observer's picture

some history.

The Constitution is a document to establish a government framework for protecting life, liberty, and property. If you can't see this then it is you that have totally missed the point.

Remember the whole separation of powers issue? What exactly do you think the framers were attempting to do, if not to protect us from our own government?

I did not say that paying taxes is slavery, I said be being forced to pay taxes by the government so they can redistribute it to someone else, is slavery.

I don't believe you will find a clause in the Constitution guaranteeing the right to social engineering by the government. The government has no rights, and it can give no rights. It can only protect our God given Rights. This is the role of our government, lost.

Paying taxes to the government to protect me from people like you is entirely appropriate. Unfortunately, it has failed miserably at this role.

You can pretend the Constitution states whatever you want if that makes you happy. I try to follow what the Constitution actually says but recognize that it has been interpreted and evolved to meet changing times. The Constitution does not include a "right to social engineering" but it also does not include a "right" to capitalism, free enterprise, or free markets so are these concepts invalid also?

If your tax money is used to help someonehe else, you become a slave? Seems like a strange idea to me.

I never thought that you needed the government to protect you from people like me. If the government has failed at this, perhaps you are not paying enough taxes. Actually I am not such a threatening type of person.

lion

PTC Observer's picture

It seems that you are the one pretending. The Constitution is a simple document made complex by thievery.

I would suggest you read:

Capitalism and Freedom by M. Friedman.

It's a short book and may keep your attention.

I might add that the concept of free markets is based on individual freedom. Individual freedom is Liberty; therefore the Constitution supports the idea that individuals have the right to be free and protected from the government.

I have given a definition of slavery to you; you don't have to accept it. Nonetheless, it is fact. A social engineering government can only exist if it forces people to obey. By supporting your position you are supporting the enslavement of others to your vision of utopia. Socialism can only exist through force - remember the fascists?

I ran across this speech by Sarah Palin while she ran for Governor, which sounds somewhat like what you are for. Of course the Teas are not for anything, just against everything.

Speech:

I am here today to tell you where I stand. To solve our money problems all we need do is work on them. They need work, and that is what I will do as soon as I can get organized. I will work on them.
I am also against non-Christians also. That does not include of course the Jews, Muslims, Hindi people, Buddhas, Orthodox and the Catholics. There are many fine people in those religions, even in our Eskimo brothers and sisters we find good Indians.
As to foreign relation, I do not intend to have any. If they want something from us they can come here and ask for it. We are Americans and owe no man any tolerance.
Now, although we all get a big check every month from the Alaskan Treasury as our share of the oil tax we charge the oil companies, we are might careful not to make it socially functioned. With that and all the fish around this place and the critters we can shoot from helicopters to eat, we can do fine without nothing from Washington, you betcha!
Hows them changes for you?
Yes, my church does speak in tongues and we do shout and dance to a frenzy once in a while, but it is fun, and also all our young kids are being married as pure and collect no welfare.

I am conservative, don't give nothing away to them what don't work except my husband who takes care of protecting my family from nasty cops. I will live at my home with my family when elected. I will go to the capital when needed on a airplane free with my kids. I believe in taking care of one's family. If I get short of money while governor, I will not burden the state further with my salary, I will quit and write a seven million dollar book about how cruddy the liberals are. Then I'll float around and end up doing a reality show of some kind. I will be rich.

We also need a smaller government and less taxes, but more oil revenues.

These two women are not alone.
Some Americans who say they have been sympathetic to Democratic causes in the past -- some even voted for Democratic candidates -- are angry with President Obama and his party. They say they are now supporting the Tea Party -- a movement that champions less government, lower taxes and the defeat of Democrats even though it's not formally aligned with the Republican Party.</cite>" CNN News

I asked politely that y'all solve all of the world's problems while I was away. I see that you didn't. Thanks for nothing.

The misspelled words and bad punctuation do speak to ignorance. Say what you will, it detracts from the message. Its hard to take someone serious that post "you're and American" and won't correct it. Frankly, if you can't spell and punctuate, then it calls into question how much education you might have to form the basis of and to back up your other opinions. I mean if someone says to you, "we done went to Panama City on our vacation" do you really care what they have to say about national issues? However, mistakes happen so everybody should get a little break.

The 912 Fayette blog is stupid because it drive away Democrats. I feel decidedly not welcomed. I can go with lower taxes, constitutionally smaller government, free enterprise, individual responsibility, etc. Then you click on the News tab and its about some nut case in the Army refusing to follow orders because of Obama's birth certificate. They show their true colors and its stupid.

Hopefully, a 2012 candidate will provide leadership to the TEA Party and focus it. And kick the fringe groups who have overtaken it out.

You may want to reconsider your paragraph immediately preceding this sentence.

You got me! I did cover myself though with, "However, mistakes happen so everybody should get a little break."

Bring back any duty free stuff?

We went to a Sandals resort. Seven restaurants, twelve bars, three night clubs, no children under 18, no boom boxes, two miles of sugar sand beach, diving on the reef just a half-mile out every day, five swimming pools, house Champagne was Blanche de Blanche, 85 degrees, midnight chocolate and wine fest, breakfast room service, over 200 species of flowers, swim up bar at the main pool, limbo dancers, palm trees, tropical sunsets, complimentary upgrade to a honeymoon penthouse suite. We were 90 minutes from Montego Bay over some truly terrible roads through the mountains so I chartered a helicopter back to the airport. Plus, I played the stock market while we were there and paid for the trip and came out over $2k ahead. Is this the best planet in the solar system or what?

Got back and read that my poor Dad was in Sudan for the election. Last time I was there it was 118 degrees every day. Awful place. They don't even have beer there!! The hotels serve mocktails, wretched fruit drinks with soda water. I can't wait to compare trip reports with him.

As to the duty free, maybe we brought back a little rum.

Makes you wonder what the poor people are doing today, doesn't it?
Leased a helicopter!

Who do you work for, Jeff? (As if I didn't know.)

I'm basically a volunteer. I like the work.

Memory's are the only true treasure we collect. Sounds like you collected a few coins..

Have a few to collect myself this May and July..

for a little bit more info on what senior was doing in Sudan go to Public Television / News Hour and do a search on Guinea worm. You may disagree on the politics but the rest is pretty good.

I think the way I addressed it was "the little break". We get enough nasty stuff on here.
