From Caffeinated Conservatives:
I've come across some news you can use and some events this month you may like. If anybody has anything else good to share, please let me know.
1) Toni Eaton for Davidson County Clerk campaign kick-off event: Tuesday March 11th from 6 - 8PM at the Dairy King (306 E Thompson Lane, Nashville), come show a genuine and good person that you're ready for a Republican as County Clerk, so we can stop showing up in the news for County Clerk corruption and kick-back stories! Since the Clerk's office brings in a lot of money for the County, Toni is working on a plan to cut expenses and serve us, instead of looking at us to serve the Clerk! Throw her a link on Facebook while you're at it: https://www.facebook.com/eaton4clerk
2) Southeast Nashville Conservative Breakfast monthly meeting: Saturday March 15th from 8:30 - 10 AM at the Shoney's at Bell Road and Cane Ridge Road in Antioch (it's the Bell Road Exit off I24E, you can't miss it). This month, Robert Duvall and Pat Carl have Heritage Action for America's Regional Coordinator Stephen Siao will be speaking about how the different candidates and elected politicians make the grade on being conservative or liberal.
3) Tennessee Firearm Association monthly meeting: Tuesday March 18th from 6 - 8 PM at the Golden Corral in Hermitage, come have a good time with friendly gun-lovers, hear an interesting speaker, and then hear TFA Executive Director John Harris give the scoop on all things 2nd Amendment happening on the State and Federal level. https://www.facebook.com/Tennfirearms
4) Caffeinated Conservatives March Meeting: Saturday March 22nd from 12 - 2 PM at Bagelface Bakery (700 Main Street), come talk with Metro Council member and Chairman of the Davidson County GOP Robert Duvall! Besides being a military veteran, Robert Duvall is as thick as you can get in Nashville politics and he has a plan to turn our Democrat county a deeper shade of Republican. Join us to pepper him with your questions and thoughts, and to find out how to get involved! https://www.facebook.com/CaffeinatedConservatives
1) As many of you remember from our meeting with Courtney Rogers and John Jay Hooker, we Tennesseans have been denied our constitutional right to vote for many of our judges by our State for decades now. The Tennessean explores the issue in this article: http://www.tennessean.com/article/20140309/COLUMNIST0111/303090071/Frank-Daniels-III-Silent-violent-TN-Plan-erodes-our-ethics?nclick_check=1
2) The Mayor continues to push the $210 million bus system so he can tear out the three center lanes of West End called "the AMP", but if you want to keep downtown from being wrecked with nightmarish traffic and your property taxes from going up to pay for this boondoggle, THIS WEEK you can help the State of TN stop the AMP. There are two bills in the legislature that you can help pass by emailing, calling, or visiting the people on the House and Senate committees, and you can get all the details at the Stopamp.org wesbite: http://www.stopamp.org/#!call-to-action/c138c
3) My favorite local politics blogger Rod Williams went to the annual conservative CPAC convention, and he has all kinds of coverage for those who want to see what conservative political leaders are planning for the future. You can get his coverage at his excellent blog here: http://www.adisgruntledrepublican.com/. In particular, I encourage you to watch British delegate to the European Union Parliament Daniel Hannan talk about how our ideas of liberty and freedom are not universal and have to be maintained by those who want them or we will join the rest of the world in tyranny: http://hotair.com/archives/2014/03/09/cpac-daniel-hannan-and-the-origins-of-liberty/
4) While the news falsely implies that the FTA has awarded $27 million to the AMP project (Metro hasn't even completed the application, so it can't be awarded any money), Lt. Gov. Ramsey was pretty clear that the AMP is a terrible idea that he's not going along with: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=iL4FUOqbIV4&t=1m12s&app=desktop
