CONTACT US BY E-MAIL OR AT 609-927-7333 TO SET UP A SPECIAL PROGRAM FOR YOUR GROUP, CHURCH/SYNAGOGUE OR SCHOOL
TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION:
1. BUSINESS MEETING, MONDAY, AUGUST 9. 6PM AT SHORE DINER, NON-VOTING ($30) MEMBERS MAY ATTEND AND SPEAK?YOU ARE ALSO INVITED TO ?UPGRADE TO VOTING ($60) MEMBERSHIP.
2. SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR GEORGE AND CYNDI GALLENTHIN TOMORROW (THURSDAY, AUGUST 5 AT 10 AM)?Stand by them at Judge Curio?s Courtroom (#202), Gloucester County Court House, Broad Street (Route 45) Woodbury, NJ. George Gallenthin is on active duty in Afghanistan. The Gallenthin?s own a plot of land with railroad access along the Delaware River in Paulsboro. In 2003, the Steve Sweeney Democrat political machine that controls Gloucester County declared the land to be ?blighted? and tried to take it by eminent domain. The Gallenthin?s took the case to the NJ Supreme Court and won. The court said there was no evidence that the vacant land was blighted. But Sweeney?s Democrat/Building Trades Union machine did not give up. The county then designed a new road that went out of its way to go through the middle of Gallenthins? land. Now they claim Gloucester County can seize the land to build the road. Why is the government so determined to take Gallenthin?s land? Is it because certain people plan to make lots of money hauling and dumping river mud when they dredge the Delaware River? Is it because Gallenthin?s land with railroad access could haul away the dredge spoils a lot quicker and cheaper?
3. BUSES TO WASHINGTON DC FOR AUGUST 28 GLEN BECK ?RESTORE AMERICA RALLY? ARE HARD TO GET. Most NJ charter bus companies have no more buses to rent. Janice Lenox filled up her Wildwood bus weeks ago. The Burlington Tea Party Group is now working on its third bus. For more info, contact Jane Twaddel (email@example.com). TERRY DELONG (firstname.lastname@example.org) is working on a second bus for Atco. Please contact me (email@example.com) if you need transportation, or if you have open seats on a bus, or if you want to share a ride.
4. RALLIES IN WASHINGTON ARE IMPORTANT, AND EXCITING, BUT—–WE ONLY NEED THEM WHEN PEOPLE IN PUBLIC OFFICE ARE WORKING AGAINST US. We can elect people who support our ideas of liberty if we pay attention to the elections that matter most. One of them is Anna Little’s campaign for Congress in the Somerset-Asbury Park District (Parkway Exit 102 to Route 22). Also, there are very important elections for State Senate and Assembly next June involving Democrat Senator Jim Whelan and Republican Assemblyman Vince Polistina and Democrat Assemblymen Nelson Albano and Matt Milam and Republican Assemblyman John Amodeo and Freeholder Frank Formica.

5. STOCKTON COLLEGE RAISED TUITION 17% IN THE PAST THREE YEARS TO BORROW $100 MILLION. After keeping plans secret for months, Stockton just announced that it is using that money to pay top dollar for the Seaview Resort Hotel and Golf Course in Galloway Township. Stockton has bailed out owners of bad real estate deals before. They include the old Atlantic City Library, the Cape May County Ponderlodge, the Noyes Museum, and an office building in Hammonton–but this is the biggest.
6. DID YOU LOOK AT YOUR JULY ELECTRIC BILL? Mine was $635 for 3,000 kilowatt hours in July, or more than 21cents per kilowatt hour. The heat wave was not the big problem. About 1/3 of the bill is social engineering–giving free electric service to illegal immigrants, and paying “green energy” producers way more than what their electricity is worth. The more solar panels and windmills we build, the more rates have to be raised on everyone else. The BPU was created by state government years ago to protect the public from gouging by big utility companies. But now the BPU is working with the big utilities to gouge consumers to advance its “green energy” agenda.
7. WHAT IS THE GOVERNMENT DOING WITH THE BILLIONS OF ?STIMULUS? DOLLARS IT BORROWED FROM CHINA? $3.37 MILLION is for a new Hilton Hotel in Millville. $1.6 million is fixing up an old train station in Glassboro–a town that has no train service! A few high paid union construction workers will have jobs for a few months–then they qualify for $550 per month federal unemployment for 99 weeks. Nice work if you can get it!

I. No eminent domain for private gain.
II. Enforce federal immigration laws. No amnesty. Deport illegal aliens.
III. Make tax and zoning laws fair, simple, and apply them equally to everyone.
IV. Cut taxes by cutting government spending.
V. Post all government salaries, contracts, and budgets online.

Let elected officials again decide what salaries, pensions, and benefits to pay our public “servants”.
VIII. Hold frequent non-binding referendums (public votes) on all issues of public importance.
IX. Term limits for all elected officials. Pensions for none.
X Audit, reform, or abolish the Federal Reserve Banking System and have Congress establish a stable currency secured by precious metals. or assets with recognized and stable values.
