Since the Jackson County Republicans have seen the need for new blood I have been relieved of my duties on the Executive Committee which opens up new opportunities including what I started talking about last week.
We will be starting a group comprised of folks who are intensely interested in the issues of the day. You know, the kind of thing that we only briefly address on a blog which by necessity cannot be long enough to cover any subject in its entirety.
If any of you readers out there are local and would like to participate, you are more than welcome. Perhaps the best way would be to post a comment and we can exchange contact information.
This will be a casual group--no dues, meeting when we decide to, choosing our topics as we go, but really researching and sharing information. Perhaps an occasional speaker may join us--we are fortunate to have some experts in various fields living around us. We may even evolve into being able to give our legislators information that would take pressure off their staffs. At the very least, we'll give it the old college try.
Other than the lame ducks which are actually pretty crippled as I see it and the flap over the new TSA methods of screening passengers which is again a reactive position rather than being proactive we've been treading water lately. The shakeups in the political parties are probably more exciting than politics at this point with challengers beginning to line up against Michael Steele.
Not that there aren't any other topics to talk about, it's just that it looks like we might have exciting times of learning and sharing ahead of us and I'm anxious to see how many folks agree.
So God bless and have a wonderful Thanksgiving. We still have an overabundance of most everything in this fantastic place we call our homeland.
