    Gotham Tea Party: Going Forward!
    While the 2012 election results were disappointing, we can't
    stand still. And won't. The holidays are behind us. The year is
    young -- and we have work to do.
    It's a new beginning.
    Our first meeting of the year has a speaker who knows about
    new beginnings. After almost a decade working as a labor
    union activist, Peter List had an epiphany about what the labor
    movement really means for America.
    He left the union movement for good.
    Now List has a greater concern: What's happening to America.
    He sees challenges. "What happens next depends on us,"
    he says.
    Join us to find out more!

    DATE: Monday, January 28th


    TIME: 6:30 - 9:30 pm
    TOPIC: "Tea Party 2.0: What Will Help Win America's Future?"
    SPEAKER: Peter List, former Communications Workers of America
    chief shop steward (among other leadership positions),
    is a regular front page contributor to RedState.com and
    is a consultant specializing in labor union issues.
    Thanks to his deep knowledge of unions, List has
    persuaded tens of thousands of employees across the
    country to reject unionization.

  3. One of the unfortunate thing about the Tea Party which started out as a libertarian (notice the small "l" please!) movement is that it was hijacked by right wing Republican Jesus Phreaks.

    I support a few tea-party organizations, and this has not been my experience at all.

    Nor mine. Gotham Tea Party has no religious affiliation. Some of the Tea Party clubs with religious zealots, of course, do have a religious tone, but the Tea Party individual clubs and organization as a whole has got nothing to do with religion, and is about small government, individual rights, the constitution, and Freedom aka Liberty.

    As anyone who bothered to look at the link I have posted 1,435,897 times would know.

    http://www.teapartypatriots.org/

    So.

    Once and for all. The Tea Party and this meeting is not about religion, but about Liberty and small government aka Ayn Rand's ideas about government, contradictory statements on this thread to the contrary notwithstanding.


  4. Change "love" to "mind" to express ruveyn's situation.
    Lookin' for love

    I've spent a lifetime looking for you

    Single bars and good time lovers, never true

    Playing a fools game, hoping to win

    Telling those sweet lies and losing again.

    I was looking for love in all the wrong places

    Looking for love in too many faces

    Searching your eyes, looking for traces

    Of what.. I'm dreaming of...

    Hopin' to find a friend and a lover

    God bless the day I discover

    Another heart, lookin' for love

    When I was alone then, no love in sight

    And I did everything I could to get me through the night

    Don't know where it started or where it might end

    I turn to a stranger, just like a friend

    I was looking for love in all the wrong places

    Looking for love in too many faces

    Searching your eyes, looking for traces

    Of what.. I'm dreaming of...

    Hopin' to find a friend and a lover

    God bless the day I discover

    Another heart, lookin' for love

    Dear fellow Patriot,

    Nearly 1 million American firearms.

    Banned by a stroke of Barack Obama’s pen.

    In a move unprecedented in American history, the Obama Administration quietly banned the re-importation of nearly 600,000 American made M1 Carbine rifles.

    And I've just discovered Obama may be blocking as many as 300,000 1911 Colts too!

    That's nearly one million pieces of American history denied to the American people.

    The M1 rifle, developed in the late 1930’s, carried the United States through World War II, seeing action in every major battle.

    General Patton at the time called the M1 “the greatest battle implement ever devised.”

    The rifle is largely credited with giving American soldiers the advantage and securing victory for the allies.

    During the Korean War, nearly one million of these rifles were brought to South Korea and loaned to the South Korean government afterward.

    Now, South Korea wants to give American gun collectors the chance to get their hands on this unique piece of history.

    A piece of American history that Barack Obama would like to see go down the memory hole.

    That’s why I want as many Americans as possible to put themselves on record opposing this gun ban by signing the Official Firearms Freedom Survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

    Will you please join me?



    M1_Rand_Clicker.jpg
    After World War II, the United States government sent millions of these rifles overseas to our allies and friends.

    That includes 950,000 M1 Garands, 1.2 million M1 Carbines, and 300,000 1911 Pistols.

    Over the past 50 years, many of the countries we lent them to returned them to America to be bought and sold by firearms collectors.

    This is nothing new.

    Make no mistake; these firearms were made in America, by Americans, for Americans, to defend freedom on foreign shores.

    As a part of our history, they are greatly sought after by American shooters and collectors.

    But according to Hillary Clinton’s State Department there is a danger they might “fall into the wrong hands.”

    That they might, possibly, one day be used in a crime.

    No mention of the hundreds of thousands of gun owners deprived of the opportunity to own an integral part of American history.

    The State Department’s outrageous claims are nothing more than a thinly veiled ploy to distract from the real issue:

    President Obama’s deep-seated hatred for gun rights.

    While his gun-grabbing base is giddy with praise at this back-door gun ban, law-abiding citizens across the United States are crying foul.

    Let me be clear: at no time in U.S. history has the ownership of these firearms -- or any part of these firearms -- been illegal, restricted or banned.

    Americans have collected World War II M1 rifles for decades.

    Now they are sold through the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

    You can even purchase a newly manufactured model from Springfield Armory that was made just a month or two ago.

    And the M1’s caliber or capacity is no more dangerous than the millions of modern firearms owned by Americans across the country today.

    As you can see, there is absolutely no justification for this unconstitutional gun ban.



    M1_Rand_Clicker.jpg
    This is just one of a series of anti-gun schemes from the Obama Administration:

    *** A new so-called “Assault Weapons Ban" -- targeting ALL semi-automatic rifles and shotguns -- which, unlike the Clinton ban, would NEVER expire;

    *** An outright BAN on “high capacity” magazines -- banning the sale and manufacture of magazines holding more than just a handful of rounds;

    *** A National Concealed Carry “Standard” -- designed to make it even more difficult for law-abiding citizens to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families from assault;

    *** Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “Catch-All Gun Control Scheme” -- to create a national “cannot buy registry,” allowing citizens to be stripped of their Second Amendment rights on a Justice Department whim, effectively banning all private gun sales.

    That’s why it is essential that Americans like you and I take a stand against the M1 Carbine and 1911 gun ban!

    It has been common practice since the end of World War II to re-import these American made rifles from the foreign allies they were lent to during the war.

    But the Obama Administration departs radically from the American tradition.

    In fact, on top of banning American citizens from owning these historic firearms, Obama’s State Department is arranging for the destruction of nearly one million of them -- ironically, at a time of ballooning federal deficits.

    It’s an outrage!

    These firearms -- truly pieces of American history -- rightly belong in the hands of U.S. citizens.

    That’s why I was glad to hear that the National Association for Gun Rights is helping fight this power grab in the U.S. Senate.

    Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?

    Do you believe that President Obama banning the re-importation of these historic firearms is an unprecedented and unconstitutional power grab?

    Do you support Congress forcing President Obama to reverse his ban and save these American made firearms from destruction?

    If you said “Yes” to these questions, please sign the Firearms Freedom Survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

    Your survey will put you squarely on the record AGAINST Barack Obama’s Gun Ban.

    M1_Rand_Clicker.jpg


    And along with your signed survey, I hope you’ll send a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35 to help finance this battle.

    With your generous contribution, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue contacting Second Amendment supporters to turn up the heat on targeted U.S. Senators.

    Not only that, but they’re preparing a massive program to launch that is designed to force President Obama to reverse this ban.

    Direct mail. Phones. E-mail. Blogs. Guest editorials. Press conferences. Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits. The whole nine yards.

    Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.

    But that’s not easy.

    So please put yourself on record AGAINST Barack Obama’s Rifle Ban by signing NAGR’s Firearms Freedom Survey.

    But along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.

    And every dollar counts in this fight, so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, your help will still make a difference.

    Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

    For Freedom,

  7. I want to take a moment to point out - (and if you find it hard to find people to admire today, check these out) - how many truly sublime young, beautiful, talented, romantic type women singer-songwriters there are in the world today. We must admire their modern culture. Feast your eyes on these gorgeous, talented young ladies. That most of these young ladies write most or some of their songs and are all below the age of 25 makes them all the more amazing:

    Demi Lovato performing "Skyscraper" (talk about right up Ayn Rand's alley!):

    Taylor Swift performing Love Story and You Belong To Me and Fifteen:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bKAaKwX5aA

    Jackie Evancho: 3 Songs:

    Adele: Set Fire To The Rain:

    We are lucky to be alive while these girls are performing. Miraculous!


  8. We launched an exciting new page on our web site this week that we think will be very popular.

    Our Bridal and Gift Registry page is going to make giving and receiving fine art as gifts easier than ever.

    We are also launching new pages for Commissioned Art as well as our Art Consulting services. These pages will continue to grow over the coming weeks.

    If you are on Facebook, be sure to check out and like our page there. Several images are posted daily for your viewing pleasure.

    Great to see the growth! Good job! Congratulations. Good idea - Registry and Consulting!!


  9. The movie is about a man's rediscovery of his will to live. He does not think he has nothing to live for by the end of the movie. He stops being suicidal at the beginning of the film. You seem to have gotten some wrong information about the story; enjoy the film and let me know what you think of it once you see it, ok?


  10. 6:11 am - that's remarkably specific. Thanks for the attention to detail there, Ruveyn. It's good to have an exact number to work around. I will time my Frosted Flakes so as to have breakfast before the end of the world . . .

    I was a stickler for detail both before and after The End of the World.

    ruveyn

    Ha ha ha. Keep that up. Competence, right on. Especially since the world didn't end, and all.

    Great News About Our Holiday Celebration: We Have a Public Venue!

    Because it's the holidays, we didn't expect many to come to our gathering. Were we surprised: Within hours close to 50 people signed up!

    We faced a dilemma: Turn people down OR find a big venue at...CHRISTMAS CHANUKAH TIME!

    Kudos to Julia H.: She found McGees -- a big venue -- at this last possible minute.

    BUT since we now have higher expenses (the restaurant!) we have to charge our usual fees. If you already signed up, you're on the list. You need not pay more.

    If you didn't sign up already, just keep this in mind: Our gathering is going to be FUN. Plus we'll enjoy great presentations from:

    Pamela Geller - The blogger and activist known for her stance against radical Islam will report on her recent experience running ads calling for the support of the civilized man against the savage.

    Yaron Brook - The son of Israeli socialists, the author of Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand's Ideas Can End Big Government, columnist for

    Forbes.com, and president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute has much to say about what's ahead in wake of last month's election.

    DATE: Monday, December 17th

    TIME: 7:00 - 9:30 pm

    VENUE: McGees

    240 West 55th Street (btwn 7th & 8th)
