01/19/2012 Leave a comment
Each month at the Third Tuesday Tea Time, we ask that you get involved / get active in the effort to save our Republic and our children from the enslavement of the debt created under the establishment Republicans and Democrats.
Here are this month’s items for TTTT Takeaway Activism:
This year, let’s make your Super Bowl party extra special!
Your local food pantries are struggling to meet the needs of your community. With the never-ending recession and the holidays, food pantry shelves are quite bare.
If you are holding a Super Bowl party at your home, ask your guests to bring items for your local food pantry! Yes, you can make your party a bigger hit by taking the opportunity to give back to those who are less fortunate!
If you are attending a Super Bowl party at a friend or family member’s home, suggest to them that they take part in the fun by collecting food items for the pantry. Offer to bring boxes and take the items to the pantry when the party is over.
You will be providing great support for your community
Right To Work
Considering you believe in Freedom, you might believe in the freedom to join a union or not. Being required to join a union gives power to union leaders to ignore the wishes of the members. When an employee has the right to choose (via Right-To-Work legislation), the union must be responsive to the members’ needs and their wishes.
The Speaker of the House in Missouri, Steven Tilley, has decided not to bring legislation to the floor that would enact Right-To-Work legislation. He claims that it would be a waste of time knowing that Governor Nixon would just veto the legislation.
Since when do Missouri Republicans decide what’s best for Missouri based on the threat of veto from a Democrat Governors?!?! Should the voters of Missouri decide to vote for Democrat General Assembly Members because only their bills will get the Governor’s signature?!?! No!
Speaker Tilley must pass the legislation that makes Missouri more competitive with the SIX Right-To-Work states that border Missouri. Then, if Governor Nixon wants to veto the bill and reduce Missouri’s competitiveness, voters will have the opportunity to pick a Governor who will even the playing field with other states.

Contact your local General Assembly Representative and ask them to push Speaker Tilley to enact Right-To-Work legislation! (http://capecountyteaparty.org/representative-contact-information)
