Ten Buck Fridays – Week Four

Ten-Buck-FridayWeek Four of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek Out new life for the Senate, to Boldly Throw Out clueless Harry Reid!!

Focusing on the Senate races is it worth ten bucks a week to you (2 12 packs of Dr. Pepper?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?

With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in NC. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Thom Tillis?

Real Clear Politics has Tillis up 1.0 points on the average, and rates the state as a toss up.

Ten Buck Fridays – Take Back the Senate Edition

Ten-Buck-Friday

Back in halcyon years of old (2010), some conservative bloggers put forth a plan where, a poll would be taken of conservative candidates around the country and the winner would be the recipient of a ten dollar contribution to their campaign. Forgive me for not taking a poll, but there are only nine Fridays between now and the midterm elections. Our country has not had a budget passed in the Senate since 2009, forcing a series of continuing resolutions which keep the nation at the brink of a shut down and masks the obscene amounts of money that the President and Congress want to spend. Hundreds of bills passed in the House are not even brought up for a vote in Harry Reid’s Senate.

 

Focusing on the Senate races (Republicans need just six seats to oust the bottleneck, hyper partisan Harry Reid as majority leader), is it worth ten bucks a week (two lattes?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?

With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in GA. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate David Perdue?


Real Clear Politics has Perdue up 3.8 points on the average, but rates the state as a toss up.


You can contribute to David Perdue here. Good luck and Godspeed, David!

Thanks to Proof for resurrecting this tradition.

WATCH: NRA’s Wayne LaPierre Live at CPAC

PARTNERS_CPAC_SOCIAL_V3

The National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre will be speaking at CPAC Thursday, March 6 and the NRA has graciously allowed Texas Conservative News to live-stream the speech.

LaPierre was recently quoted by Newsmax warning of the Obama administration’s plans to subvert the Second Amendment.

“By winning just a handful of Senate and House seats in November’s elections, Obama could effectively wield all the levers of federal power — executive, legislative, and judicial — to gut the Second Amendment that protects our families and defends our freedom.”

I’m curious to see if he addresses the recent occurrences of gun confiscation in Connecticut.

The speech is set to begin at 2:30 p.m. EST (1:30 pm CST)

Testing. Testing. Testing Your Resolve to Defend Civil Liberties

North Texas Drivers Stopped at Roadblock Asked for Saliva, Blood

Some drivers along a busy Fort Worth street on Friday were stopped at a police roadblock and directed into a parking lot, where they were asked by federal contractors for samples of their breath, saliva and even blood.

It was part of a government research study aimed at determining the number of drunken or drug-impaired drivers.

“It just doesn’t seem right that you can be forced off the road when you’re not doing anything wrong,” said Kim Cope, who said she was on her lunch break when she was forced to pull over at the roadblock on Beach Street in North Fort Worth.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is spending $7.9 million on the survey over three years, said participation was “100 percent voluntary” and anonymous.

But Cope said it didn’t feel voluntary to her — despite signs saying it was.

“I gestured to the guy in front that I just wanted to go straight, but he wouldn’t let me and forced me into a parking spot,” she said.

Once parked, she couldn’t believe what she was asked next.

“They were asking for cheek swabs,” she said. “They would give $10 for that. Also, if you let them take your blood, they would pay you $50 for that.”

At the very least, she said, they wanted to test her breath for alcohol.

She said she felt trapped.

“I finally did the Breathalyzer test just because I thought that would be the easiest way to leave,” she said, adding she received no money.
