Today is the Day to Get Out The VOTE!
Polls opened up at 6am & will be opened until 8pm
(barring any funny business at the polling stations which seems to be happening a lot the past few years in our cities)
Have you already gone to Vote before going to work?
Call Friends & Family & Remind them to #GOTV
Can you take a Co-Worker to go vote during your lunch break?
Can you get out early to assist with getting friends & family & neighbors to the voting booths?
Call the candidate that you are supporting & ask if there is some assistance that you can offer, many times there are polling stations that could use a sign waver outside for an hour or two.
Did you remind the people in your social networks?
If we are going to turn around our state we must begin with our cities & towns.
Those who are fighting common core have been made fun of the parents fighting common core & the administrations in most states have gone on the attack to try to drown out the voices of those concerned & knowledgeable enough to stand up & say “NO This is Very Bad for our children & we do not want it”
With each passing year the schools make excuses after excuses for why the students are doing poorly…
Then they demand more money because they think that if the test scores are bad then of course they must spend more money on the worst educational system that was developed…
#ParentsRights are being denied as many school officials try to hide the curriculum & lessons & tests from the parents. Teachers & Administrators have gone against what are in the best interest of the children in their push to add more highly paid staff with titles to do worthless studies…
Our children are worth more than the crazy experiments which these testing corporations are doing. We can not afford for our children’s lives to be ruined by these people.
#StopCommonCoreInCT end the moneypit waste that we have going on in every town in CT.
Learn All that you can about this program & then get down to the town halls & demand for the removal of this mess from our state & towns! #TakeBackOurSchools

This video is a Live Stream of the forum in Portland CT Feb 22nd 2014 that was put together by parents fighting common core in CT
It has some glitches & the lunch break was recorded because the way that the setup for the Live Stream worked to turn off the stream for the breaks would have lost the connection that the Live Viewers saw
Are you wondering how you can be more active in the Republican Party but don’t know what to do?
Well if you’re a Registered Republican & live in Windsor I invite you to come to the Republican Town Committee meeting to join in on the discussions & give your input & meet the other Windsor Republicans.
We meet monthly at the town hall on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:30pm mostly but if there is pressing or special business we’ll start at 7pm
Even if you can’t commit to join & attend all of the meetings; the WRTC meetings are a very good way to get to know about what our Republican Town Councilmen & Board Of Ed members have to say about what is going on in our town government. It is insightful to hear their reports & why votes & disagreements are happening during the televised meetings & afterwards.
A great time ask questions “privately” without it being out there on the town website for all to see for those who are camera shy.
Don’t worry about finding a babysitter bring the children if you need to, the meetings aren’t that long & there is space that you can have them sit & play with coloring books when we are in the main room.
The older children will actually benefit as they get to see how on the local level our government works.
Both High School & College students are encouraged to attend,
we are looking for input on starting a Young Republicans group here in the area.
While people debate if Martin was republican or democrat or communist & his message has been hijacked by the rioting masses in Ferguson
I think we need to be reminded it’s the signs such as the one here that Martin was marching against & for the ability for men & women of color to go in not only to stores & schools & businesses to shop & work their way up to owners without being judged by the color of their skin.
We can celebrate that our nation has come such a long way that we have elected a man whose skin is black even though he grew up much differently than the majority of american born blacks whose heritage include slaves (he does not share that heritage his father was a rich African & his mother was a rich white woman whose family may or may not have owned slaves in their history).
What is sad is that instead of celebrating how far our country has come & all of the advances our country has made in ending slavery (which is still in operation today in African & Middle Eastern countries) there are so many men & women who are creating division. Even sadder still is they are profiting on creating that division & feeding the fires of division.
Al & Oprah toss out the race card at personal slights but where they NEED to speak up & against such as the damage that Common Core is doing to the young black men & women in school while making elites like Bill Gates richer they refuse to speak out against.
We have a rich history of being Victors in spite of the odds that had been placed in our way yet that is not celebrated. Men & Women like Ben Carson & Star Parker should be held up & promoted by those who have the spotlight instead they are torn down because the agenda that is being pushed & there is no profits being made by promoting getting a good education & owning your own business as these examples of overcoming great odds have done.
I hope that you will take a few minutes each day to thank God for the strides that we have made here in the USA. You have been blessed to live here in this country instead of any of the others where slavery still reigns & women are not allowed to be educated.
Celebrate the USA where people can own land & they have the right to protect their homes & family because in too many countries people are not able to do either.
Celebrate because it is quite rare in other countries for poor people to be obese or have a closet full of clothes.
Celebrate that Black Americans come in a Rainbow of colors due to our history & that We Have Overcome because most of the glass ceilings have been removed if we take the time to research & do the work that is required we do not have to flip burgers for minimum wage we can Open Our Own Restaurant & Own Our Own Businesses.
Stop buying into the racist group think the communists are striving to force upon us that actually keeps us down & drags others down that have managed to get out of the plantation ghettos. Instead work to fight against those who promote servitude & slavery under a new name…
I Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr’s fight by choosing to pick up the mantel & join that long line of civil rights fighters that he was just one member of but too many of our young men & women do not seem to know the stories of. I fight the new slavery of ignorance, where the Constitution is held as a document of enslavement rather than celebrated as a document of FREEDOM & LIBERTY that it is.
