Bumper sticker ideas?

I keep trying to think of a good bumper sticker. How about:"The only thing extreme about the Tea Party is our extreme worry about the national debt/size of the Federal government. If you are not…Continue

Has the Tea Party inadvertantly helped Obama?

Just had an awful thought. Was reading a report about the coming "Fiscal Cliff" that will occur after the election when the "Bush Era Tax Cuts" are allowed to expire, and the mandated cuts forced by the Tea Party as a result of the debt ceiling fight will take effect.Every time Obama uses the line about taxing "millionaires and billionaires", do you think he silently thanks the Tea Party for electing a Republican House of Representatives that stopped him from doing so? If he had been able to…

New Chairperson needed

Hello all,


In the last few weeks my life has changed dramatically. I got accepted into a Master's Certificate program at Univ. of Colorado, which contributed to being accepted for a new job at Gunnison Valley Hospital. And we are now empty-nesters, enabling such a move. August 16, 2011 will certainly go down as a historic day in my life! (of course after May 31, 1981, Nov. 9, 1989 and July 1,…

Need to take the Senate in 2012

Having just heard that the Senate again tabled a bill that was passed in the House, it is apparent that in order to get sane legislation passed, Republicans need to keep control of the House in 2012, and get a majority in the Senate. The current tally is 47 Republicans, 51 Democrats and 2 Independents who caucus with the Dems. Unfortunately, Colorado can't help the odds in 2012, but of the 33 seats up for re-election, 23 are Democrat/Independent either retiring or up for re-election but only…

I had just finished writing a letter to Cory Gardner regarding Boehner's committment to get and amnesty bill by the end of the year. I'm totally upset with the ineffective leadership of the Republicans and was considering an alternative. I have been considering this for some time (since the end of George Bush's first term) so I naturally started looking at the tea party.

Hi Cathy,


I'm so sorry I never received your message dated last JULY! YIKES!! I haven't been at my best since February, but am on a "bounce-back" mission as of a month ago - YAY!  I am trying to get up to par on all things political, or at least, get to where I can join in.  Thanks for inviting me to make a suggestion.  Hopefully I will be in full swing soon!  Take care :)

Cathy -

Its a little late to post info on the District 6 picnic now.  They needed a headcount several days ago to get food ordered.  Maybe we can be more proactive next time and get the news out earlier.


Thanks for being willing to help, though!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the meeting on Tuesday evening.  I listen to a conservative radio station, and had heard about the Denver/Aurora/Gaylord project, but I really didn't have enough knowledge to form an opinion.  the meeting really helped.

Do you always meet the first Tuesday of the month?  Beginning in Sept. I have a church meeting commitment on that day each I hope I have other opportunties.  thanks.  Ann

Cathy, further to my comment on Flash Mob of Kindness with the InGodWeTrust 9-12 project.


I am not in a position to be the collection point for donations.  I may be able to get the club house reserved here in Aurora (near I-225 and Colfax) as a place to assemble the bags.  Unless there is a different member of the ATP who can host it at their home.  We would need to decide on a location and a time for Thursday 4/14 to assemble the bags.  We would need a location to store assembled bags until 4/21 when they would be handed out.


The Broomfield group is thinking about doing this once a month, at different locations, with different items collected depending on the location for that month. 


Some ideas of where we could do this monthly (feel free to add ideas)

Battered Women Centers
Civic Center Park – Host hotdog BBQ’s on Sat or Sun-give small bags of toiletries.
Colfax Avenue – Box Lunches
Hospital Resident Facilities (for families with someone in the hospital)
Retirement Homes / Senior Centers
Teen Mom Centers
Trailer/Camping Parks – Many who are between jobs are now living in these parks
Workforce Centers


Currently the Broomfield group has a second meeting scheduled for:

Thursday, April 14, 2011 10:00 AM
Butler Res
13414 Locust St
Thornton, CO 80602


If members of the ATP want, they can attend the meeting on the 14th in Thornton, if we are unable to schedule one here in our area.  Members of the ATP are welcome to help hand out bags on the 21st at the Work Force center on Steed and Colfax if we are unable to schedule one closer.


I think this covers my notes from the meeting today.  Because I am so new to this group and the area, I have no idea how to notify members of the ATP or how to coordinate collecting and assembling the donations.  Your help would be appreciated.

I attended the planning meeting for the Flash Mob of Kindness in Broomfield today with members of  the group InGodWeTrust, 9-12 Project.  There were nine of us.  They would welcome any and all members of this ATP who want to participate.  There are several ways we could participate: 

(1)  donation of items

(2)  donation of time to assemble bags

(3)  donation of time to hand out bags


They are looking at a Work Force Center (Employment office on Steed and Colfax).  One of the members plans to find out what time classes are so we can arrange to be there at a time when a lot of people are there on 4/21.


This may be too far north for members of the ATP.  It was suggested we could choose a closer Work Force center to make our donations.  We would need to choose one, coordinate a time when they would have people attending employment classes. etc.


We settled on donating bags with a minimum of ten items (more is ok but not necessary)

suggested items: 

1 pound bags – beans, pintos, kidney, etc
1 pound bags rice
Peanut Butter
Canned Goods -Vegetables, ravioli, beans, spaghetti sauce, etc.
Canned Meat – chicken, beef, tuna, etc.
Canned Fruits – of any flavor
Box of Pasta/Starch – Mac & Cheese, Rice-a-Roni, Potatoes, etc.
Canned Soups
Hot Chocolate
Instant cups of soup
Non-food items – Shampoos, lotions, tooth brushes & paste, soap, etc. (Sample sizes or hotel freebies are also welcomed.)


A dead line of April 14th was agreed on.  With plans to meet to assemble the bags.  By using paper bags we write a message of Hope and Love as well as note who we are.  (I have 14 bags w/handles).  It would be great if we could fill those 14 bags.  If more are needed, I can get more of the same.

Hi Cathy...I've been looking for you at ATP so I could give you the info on the Poll Daddy you requested.  But I was looking for Kathy, not Cathy...

Here's the link to poll daddy.  Sign up for an account. 

Poll Daddy Website 


I used the "free account".  It gives you 10 questions and hopefully that gives you enough of an opportunity to ask everyone's opinions.  Once you sign up for an account, it will give you the survey format, and it's very easy to add questions. Once you're satisfied with the questions, you can post the link on ATP website. The results will come to your personal email box I think.  Be sure to give it a deadline, or people will take forever to respond.  Good luck!
