crash course seminar on the true nature of Communism
July 12th, 2010 at the Original North Phoenix Tea Party

Our nation today is faced with a showdown between the forces of Liberty and the forces of Tyranny. Americans across the political spectrum have begun to take notice and take action. Americans instinctively desire freedom and reject totalitarianism. Few, however, have been schooled in the history of Marxism-Leninism. This is to our detriment. To combat the ideas, tactics, objectives and goals of communism, we must make an effort to understand its nature. Only with knowledge can we design effective programs to defeat the false promises it makes.

Mesa –The East Valley TEA Party’s Second Annual Super Bowl of Conservative Candidates will be held Saturday, April 24th at Dobson Ranch Inn (1666 South Dobson Rd. Mesa, 85202).  The focus of the forum is to introduce voters to candidates running for offices including Governor, State Treasurer and Superintendent of Public Instruction and various state representatives and senators, as well as candidates running for US Congress and US Senate.  Senator Russell Pearce, Bill Montgomery, and Jeff Smith have already confirmed their attendance.  The candidate forum will run from 12-6, in an open-house style, and will feature debates between candidates, Q &A sessions and U.S. Constitutional study.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio will close the event with his personal take on the role of the TEA Party movement in modern day politics.

“This is a great way to meet many candidates running for office all in one location.” Jennifer Patentreger, East Valley TEA Party member, explained.  “We need to know who these candidates are and where they stand on the important issues. This format allows the voter to meet these candidates face to face and to ask the tough questions.”

Greg Western of the East Valley TEA Party said that, “We can no longer rely on an (R) or a (D) behind a candidate’s name to tell us all we need to know.  In 2010, the voter must be informed and knowledgeable on candidates, issues and most importantly, the intent of the United States Constitution. We welcome and invite all voters to attend our event.”  Additional information is available at www.EVTPP.com

Hi Folks,

My new website is live.... check it out!


We're still making some changes, but we wanted to get it up as soon as possible so you could have all the information about the big SUMMER ROAD TRIP. You'll be able to watch video "webisodes" and read our blogs right from the new website.

We're heading west to Albuquerque then up through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, across a small corner of Colorado, and then over to Arches National Park. From there its up through the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, and then Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. We'll be doing lots of fun things too like trains... biking, hiking, rafting and horseback riding.

28 days in a 31 ft. RV - two 14 year old boys, two dogs, one cranky husband and one diva. (You don't want to miss this!)

Hope you'll follow along!


Here's the solo acoustic shows I'll be playing along the way:

Late Nite Catechism By Vicki Quade & Maripat Donovan, Ongoing; call for dates and times, Stage 2, Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Single ticket price: $36, The longest-running play in the Valley is still in a class by itself! Audience members are the students in catechism class, and Patti Hannon is "Sister" in this hilarious interactive comedy.

Late Nite Catechism II: Sometimes We Feel Guilty Because We Are Guilty
By Maripat Donovan, Ongoing; call for dates and times,
Stage 2, Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Single ticket price: $36, That¹s right, the fun continues in Sister¹s second catechism class! You don¹t need to graduate from the first class to enjoy this one; Sister will give extra attention to her slower students. Sister has felt banners, a filmstrip, handouts, historical facts and hysterical insights to explain every nun¹s goal: getting into heaven and bringing along as many of the faithful as possible. Using a special version of Chutes and Ladders to demonstrate her point, Sister tells us where we¹ve gone wrong, and no one is excused from her firm belief that "sometimes we feel guilty because we are guilty."
