My latest examiner article actually went up a few days ago but I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to promote it. The article talks about the difference between what my arch enemy friend Chris Lackey and what other people see:

Chris, whose critique didn’t touch much on speakers like Bill Campbell (r), was very unlucky, as a committed atheist he picked the only week that any presentation remotely touched on religion, If he had been covering other tea party events he perhaps would have understood the heart of the tea party, best exemplified by people like Kristine Abrams who is running for state rep on the Republican Ticket in the 11th Plymouth district.

Kristine is not a politician, she is a regular person who got sick and tired of what was going and an instead of deciding that there was nothing she could do; decided to do something herself. She had campaigned in her district with a message of fiscal responsibility and is making a difference by challenging the one party status quo in this state.

Remember that .0075 per hit is the only revenue I’m making other than the odd tech support job. So click on it and read this and my other examiner articles here.

There was a very good rebuttal at the Sentinel & Enterprise a few days ago:

No, what is clearly evident is that people who share Mr. Lackey’s views are terrified that their humanist/statist hold on government policy is being threatened. However, the philosophy of the tea party in the Twin Cities is nothing to fear. It is a view of smaller government, more local control, peaceful protest, and an inclusive environment where anyone is welcome. To accuse the Twin Cities Tea Party of being intolerant or rude is completely ridiculous and a terrible slight to the group of individuals who take the time out of their busy lives to make it possible for us to have our forum.

My own rebuttal didn’t make the papers I’ll throw it up later.

I absolutely love Kristine’s story:

The truth is there is nothing you can do until you decide to do it. Kristine is the perfect expression of the change in this country, people deciding to get involved. She got involved. Plymouth county and the PCRSP should be pleased to have her. I don’t know if she is involved in the tea parties but she is a perfect expression of them.
