Dr. Theo goes to work behind enemy lines to meet the “Health Insurance Reform Now” bus and the “Organizing for America” army. He arrived early Monday evening on the campus of Indiana University/Purdue University in Indianapolis, so as to watch the organization in action as they prepared for the arrival of the teeming throngs.

Americans for Prosperity’s Hot Air Tour was a hit this morning in Rapid City! Held at Citizens for Liberty President Gordon Howie’s ranch, AFP President Tim Phillips informed Rapid City area attenders about the cap and trade global warming tax and the intrusions on freedom it would bring. Phillips encouraged people to call Senator Tim Johnson and ask him to vote “No” in the bill in the Senate.

There are people in media and the government of this country who are calling us an unruly mob and un-American. Town Hall meetings have a long and proud history in this country of ours.

Thousands of residents have been forced into shelters by The Station fire, the largest of California’s multiple fires, which engulfed more than 100,000 acres within a few hours Monday. Evacuation notices have been issued to 10,100 residents, and the Salvation Army has mobilized to help.
