As we travel across this great nation I have had the privilege of leading the Military tribute and sharing my son Marc’s amazing story at each one of rallies. This is the most moving part of our rallies and I am blessed to be able to thank each and everyone of our heroes who have served in the military and honor them. Our Freedoms are given to us by God but it is our men and women in the military who have sacrificed, fought, bled, and many have died for the very freedoms.
The schedule and travel is intense on the Tour and most of the time we are fighting to get Internet connections. I would love to send you updates daily but find it difficult to find the time or quiet place to gather my thoughts. We have other gifted writer’s on the tour and I would love to share with you what they have written.
Here is an insight to a few of those patriots who are traveling with me on the TPX. Please check out our schedule www.teapartyexpress.org and come meet us in person and stand with us as we “Reclaim America.”
Pro Funny Man Brings Laughter to Tea Party Express V.
Jim Labriola from the “Home Improvement” TV sitcom has been a wonderful addition to our Tea Party Express V national bus tour team. Jimmy’s comedic family friendly monologues are a hit with the patriots
at our rallies.
With most of Hollywood being hardcore liberals, conservative actor/comedian Jim Labriola is a breath of fresh air.
One of our two tour buses was under repair causing the twelve member administrative crew to pile on the entertainers bus for the two mile ride to the hotel. It was uncomfortable.
Jimmy spontaneously went into a hilarious monologue worthy of a Jim Labriola TV Special. My stomach contracted so much from laughter, I had a great ab workout. As corny as this might sound, we truly are a
family on Tea Party Express. Jimmy masterfully used his gift of humor to bring us a little bit closer together.
Hey Jimmy, you should market an exercise video, “The Jim Labriola Ab Workout: Laugh Your Way to Great Abs”.
We just completed our Tea Party Express rally in Sioux City, IA. This
morning I logged on my computer to read, “Obama: The Unemployed Are Being Discriminated Against”.
Obama and company never changes their play book to get-their-way. They always divide Americans into victimized groups saying they are either disenfranchised or discriminated against.
Last night, we arrived early enough in Omaha, NE for me to do laundry. The hotel washing machine was not working. The front desk sent a black tech to fix it. After solving the problem, he asked, “So, are you the driver of that bus?”
I explained my role on the Tea Party Express team. Obviously hostile, the big young black man subtly confronted me, “What are you people doing?” Clearly, he was a victim of the liberal media spin which says we are racist against a black president.
I shared with him what the tea party movement is REALLY about. The young black man was clueless about politics.
Listening intensely, he was like a sponge. Amazingly, he said, “I am beginning to see things differently”. Praise God!
Patriots, I pray that someone will sponsor and help organize a tea party tour to black colleges and communities. Misinformed blacks need to see and hear black conservatives such as Herman Cain, myself and others.
