There is a health care town hall meeting in Madison on August 26th being put on by Americans for Prosperity. John Stossel will be there as a moderator. It’s free, but tickets are required. Check out the AFP-WI web site for tickets : http://www.fightbackwisconsin.com
When many people heard that Sen. Kohl’s listening session at the Janesville Rotary Club was “private”, they did not go at all. That did not stop Kevin Thompson from waiting outside the event to talk with Senator Kohl. Kevin was a speaker at our July 4th TEA Party. Way to go Kevin!
Here is a link to Kevin’s blog about the meeting: Kevin Thompson’s Blog
Several of the Rock River Patriots attended the TEA Party this past Saturday…It was great to see so many motivated to take back our government. Here is a link to the story from the Janesville Press Gazette : Janesville TEA Party
On Monday August 17th at noon in Janesville, Sen. Herb Kohl will be having a listening session.
The location is at Rotary Gardens, 1455 Palmer Drive, Janesville WI. Go and tell him how you feel about the health care bill!

From Wisconsin Gun Owners Website:
Ignoring the wishes of grassroots gun owners, and doing the bidding of Sarah Brady, State Rep. Scott Gunderson is still pushing AB70, the bill to expand the National Instant Check System (NICS) in Wisconsin.
All it takes is one anti-gun government mental health crony to declare you “adjudicated mentally defective” and you lose your guns.
Here is the Link:WGO regarding AB70 and SB44
This was my letter to the elected “representatives” proposing this bill and my representatives:
I am a Deputy Sheriff and have been so employed for the past 8.5 yrs. Being a law enforcement officer and tactics instructor, I understand the INTENTIONS proposing these bills (AB70 / SB44) in light of the Virginia Tech Massacre. The shooter was mentally disturbed, and was still able to purchase several guns.
HOWEVER, I am an American Patriot first and foremost. These bills give the government too much power and access to records that must be kept private. The potential for abuse far out weighs the need to protect the public interest. While these incidents happen, they are not as frequent as they are portrayed. I believe concealed carry is the solution.
As we see the push for GOV’T RUN HEALTHCARE by the Liberals, the GOV’T DOCTORS would be the ones making a determination of a person’s mental state. Conservative minded people are already under assault on all fronts by the liberals, socialists, communists, and the mainstream media. With the current Federal Gov’t power-grabs by the Obama Administration, is it really that unthinkable that their anti-gun agenda would now move further. Labeling conservatives as Right-Wing Exemists and putting them on a terrorist watch list is the first step to labeling us “mentally defective”. We COULD be the subject of an involuntary commitment. The GOV’T DOCTORS could do this with the stroke of a pen, taking away a person’s 2nd amendment rights. Once they do that, it is all over.
VOTE NO ON THESE BILLS AND ENCOURAGE YOUR COLLEAGUES TO DO THE SAME!
