COPs on the Hill

Stories from the weeks of November 5 and 12 , 2010

Restore Sanity Rally:   The crowd was estimated at about 200,000 on a perfect fall day for COPs to show the colors.   Karen did all the work on the signs.  Scott my nephew and his fiance Daniel drove from Wisconsin to be part of the day.  Bob Ramsey who took the picture flew in from Dallas.   Somewhere close to  400 people took our picture.   It was another good day.

 First cattle call* of the presidential race of 2010:  Grover Norquist’s brunch featured Gary Johnson (former two term R governor of New Mexico and possible candidate for President in 2012) who spoke for several minutes.    A surprise guest was Ralph Nader on the intrusiveness of the airport screeners.*  Before this last election, I saw and heard from well over 200 R candidates, many of whom will be Congressmen in January.

Forget coffee.  I now like Tea:  Arriving early to Grover’s Brunch, I was able to have long chat with the editor of a national publication for the Tea Party movement (www.TeaPartyReview.com )  The E-zine is just getting started, so we will have to wait to see if it develops as promised.  Either way, the editor and I had much in common on several issues.

  • Cattle call = abwertend Ausdruck –wenn viele Leute will was haben und sie ein nach dem anderen beweisen ihre gute Eigenschafte
  • Airport screeners = Flughafensicherheitsarbeiter
