Update – Montana Stands Up to the Feds

MT Gun Flag

On April 21st I did a blog post regarding the Montana Made Firearms Bill called Montana Stands Up to the Feds!  The bill exempts firearms made and retained in Montana from all federal gun regulation.  This is a simple issue of the Tenth Amendment and the federal government unconstitutionally encroaching on state rights.

The next step in the process took place on Thursday when a lawsuit was filed.  You can find the article on the lawsuit entitled, Montana Gun Suit Challenges Federal Authority.  I support this bill; it is a vital issue for our country and will help define the county we live in.  It seems to me, not being an attorney, that this is an open and shut case.  This bill is legal under the Constitution and no laws or decisions by any court can change that.

Obama Lies Grandma Dies

montanashruggedgroup

Yesterday, I attended the Montana Shrugged Group’s weekly protest in Billings, MT.   Despite the cold and rainy weather we had many proud patriots meet at the CVS Pharmacy on 24th Street.

Our message was loud and clear: we are feed up with Obamacare and uncontrolled government spending.  There were a lot of people I met who have never been involved in political grassroots until April 15th, the first Tea Party.  It showed me that the silent majority has woken up and people are sick and tired of the federal government.

Reading List Help

atlas

I recently read George Orwell’s 1984 and I’m almost finished with Watership down by Richard Adams.  I have a small queue of books coming up next including: another book in the Rich Dad Poor Dad series, Blink by Malcolm Gladwell, and my first Ayn Rand novel.  I think I’m going to read Atlas Shrugged first, though I also have The Fountainhead.

I’m looking for suggestions on other books to read, and figured my friends and readers in the Montana blogosphere would be the perfect group to ask.  I’ve been going back and reading many of the classics I didn’t read when I was younger or rereading them.  Of the classics my favorites are The Count of Monte Cristo and For Whom the Bell Tolls.

So blogosphere, I have two questions for you:

  1. What are some other books I should read?
  2. Should I read Atlas Shrugged or Fountainhead first?

Tea Partiers Trounce Union Thugs

Below is a guest column by Henry Kreigel a fellow Bozeman Tea Party Patriot, conservative radio host, and overall great guy.  He wrote a piece on the Obama protest other things Tea Party.  He also has just started a blog which can be found here.

Tea Partiers Trounce Union Thugs:

What Really Happened Outside Obama’s Town Hall Meeting

The Bozeman Tea Party and supporters clashed with paid union thugs outside the President’s Town Hall Meeting.  The union hacks, modern-day brownshirts, included Service Employees International Union, a group affiliated with ACORN and the Montana AFL-CIO who bussed down union members and paid community organizers from Missoula and elsewhere around the state. While the Obama supporters arrived in the middle of the night, claimed our permitted area and had an early advantage with numbers, we eventually turned out 300-350 people and trounced them. The conflict which bordered on getting physically violent was in stark contrast to the tightly orchestrated event inside the hangar where the town hall meeting took place.

Thank You Obama Protesters

Let me first thank everyone who came out to protest Obama at the Bozeman Airfield on Friday.  It was because of you we had a successful event!!  I was inspired to see so many patriots standing up to preserve their freedoms and stop government from taking over another private industry.

We outnumbered supporters of the President’s policies about 3-1 and made our voices heard.  They brought in paid activists on busses who tried to drag us down…but we wouldn’t be stopped.  We had Montana citizens from all over the state that organized and came to the protest.

People from all over the state spoke.  We heard from an emergency room doctor from Billings, a women from Kalispell who lived in England, a Neurosurgeon, and many other patriots from Montana.
