Orcas Republican Meeting – Oct 7, 2017

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Join the SJCRP on Orcas as they hear from fellow islander (Lopez) Ed Kilduff, Hydrologist, who will be speaking about the WA State Supreme Court Hirst Decision, which basically halts drilling of wells on undeveloped property, and why it is important to everyone in our state….so important that the Republican leadership is holding out on the budget until the Hirst “Fix” gets passed and signed. This is important on our island and to our future. All are welcome to attend the meeting 12:30 pm, Saturday, October 7th at the Eastsound Fire Station.  Please RSVP to cindy@orcasonline.com.

Orcas 2017 Lincoln Day Dinner Great Success!!

posted in: Events, Lincoln Day Dinner | 0

Orcas Republicans and Conservatives enjoyed a great turnout and speeches given by County Chairman Nathan Butler and Guest Speaker Herb Meyer at the 2017 Lincoln Day Dinner.

Cindy Carter put together a tasty chili dog lunch with the help of many hands. Her double chocolate desserts were very popular.

Rick Boucher MC’d the event and Janis Ghazel blessed us with a fabulous rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” and later with a stirring “God Bless the USA.”

The highlight if the luncheon was Herb Meyer. Herb’s talk on “The Second Civil War” oriented on the “change” progressives want to work on our society. He spoke to the fact that this nation was uniquely created by God though the Founders to be a Republic in which the common man is in charge of his destiny and tells the government what to do.

Over the last 40 to 60 years progressives have attempted to flipp the order of things.  The so called elite “know” what is best for the common man and thus tell him what to do. The government tells the citizen to sit down, shut up and do what I say. (Pardon my putting words in Herb’s mouth. His points and arguments tend to stir the blood a bit.)

We had a good time of Q and A after the talk.  Fabulous fun for everyone!

There should be an article about the event in the media when the reporter gets things written up.  I will link to that article at that time.

I have the benefit of listening once again this next weekend at Lopez on Friday and then in Friday Harbor on Saturday. See you there!

From Amazon.com bio:

Herbert E. Meyer served during the Reagan Administration as Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIA’s National Intelligence Council. In these positions, he managed production of the U.S. National Intelligence Estimates and other top-secret projections for the President and his national security advisers. Mr. Meyer is widely credited with being the first senior US Government official to forecast the collapse of the Soviet Union — a forecast for which he later was awarded the U.S. National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal, which is the Intelligence Community’s highest honor.

In 2003, Mr. Meyer produced and hosted The Siege of Western Civilization, a DVD outlining the threats to our security, our economy, and our culture that became an international best seller.

Formerly an associate editor of FORTUNE, he has authored several books including The War Against Progress, Real-World Intelligence, and Hard Thinking. Mr. Meyer and his wife, Jill, are co-authors of How to Write, which is among this country’s most widely used writing handbooks.

He is author of two eBooks: How to Analyze Information: A Step-by-Step Guide to Life’s Most Vital Skill, and The Cure for Poverty, which explains how the Free Market works and how entrepreneurs create jobs.

Mr. Meyer’s essays on intelligence and politics have been published in The Wall Street Journal, National Review Online, Policy Review, The American Thinker, and Ricochet. He has been a guest on leading television and radio talk shows.

Mr. Meyer is a popular speaker on the lecture circuit. He delivers his overview of global trends and developments, entitled What in the World is Going On, to corporations, business associations, student organizations and public affairs groups throughout the world.

Very Interesting Article on Impacts Ieaded Our Way via the Afordable Care Act.

From RedState.com ………..

What Obamacare has done is create a series of perverse incentives that encourage businesses to stop providing health insurance. As a business you have the choice of providing a rather gaudy health care plan to your employees or paying a tax. I say gaudy because the the basic requirements of the package, providing enough birth control pills to satisfy Sandra Fluke’s appetites, for instance, adds cost on to the plan. Contrary to what a lot of people seem to believe the health care plan provided by your employer is not YOUR health plan, it is your employer’s.

So by paying a tax, a business can avoid the human resources head ache of managing a health plan and reduce costs. What option do you think many businesses will choose.

But wait there is more.
