And that thing about “meatless societies” but hey, as a vegetarian I … OH YOU KNOW I’M KIDDING! Please thank your Council member … Here’s the report from the Spartanburg Tea Party! Here’s the video – number three has the debate and (subcommitee) vote! The Tea Party says THANK your city council member! Right!

More Misinformation on ICLEI from Whatcom County, Washington - Virginia Right - Here is a link to an extraordinary letter from Pete Kremen, the County Executive of Whatcom County, Washington. (Whatcom is not a misprint nor is it a parody! Thanks to Paul Murphy for this item.) It is filled with misinformation about ICLEI. Let’s set the record straight:  Whatcom County is a member of ICLEI USA,which is a separate non-profitorganizationfrom ICLEI Global. Here are the different mission statements according to their websites:  Read more......

Helping to End Eminent Domain Abuse - American Thinker - Six years ago, the United States Supreme Court effectively gutted property rights protections in the Fifth Amendment. A pending bill in the United States House could help to address some of the damage caused by the Court.....The United States House is currently considering the "Private Property Rights Protection Act."
