Featured Speaker - Dick McDonald  
Dick McDonald"Morning in America - Part II"

Ronald Reagan reversed Jimmy Carter's "Era of Limits" into the greatest 25-year period of wealth creation in the history of the planet. It ended with the DOW topping 14,000 before it crashed in the fall of 2008. Barack Obama and the Democrat Party are intent on imposing another "Era of Limits" by nationalizing health care, financing, energy and auto industries in the mistaken belief they will grow the economy and create wealth. Dick McDonald, a club member and his infant Think Tank, Ownership Society Institute (OSI), have devised a plan to create another period of wealth creation that will top even Reagan's quarter-century miracle. As Reagan would say right now, big government socialism isn't the answer, it is the problem. The people are in the streets screaming at their politicians to stop socialism's intrusion into their lives. OSI has created a flag under which all their "Tea Party" complaints can fly. Appropriately it is called the "USA". Come to the meeting to learn all about the "USA" and freeing America's "exceptionalism" from the handcuffs of socialism.
Mr. McDonald is a former practicing CPA who has spent his life as a tax man helping the rich get richer.  He was the High School club mate of Jack Kemp whose Kemp-Roth bill started "Morning in America, Part 1." When he says rich he isn't kidding - he did J. Paul Getty's personal income, gift, trust and estate tax work for ten years at an international accounting firm when Getty was the only billionaire around.
MoveOn.Org is Demonstrating
Obamacare Counter-Demonstrations Planned by Republicans at MoveOn Locations

Obama and his supporters are now getting concerned.  They have called in for resources. is planning several demonstrations next Wednesday, September 2nd, all over the country.  There will be two here in the Valley.  You can find the location of the demonstrations on their web site here

They are having one demonstration at Ventura and Van Nuys Blvd. and another at Burbank and Van Nuys Blvd.  Their goal is 300 people at the Ventura Blvd. location and 400 people at the Burbank Blvd. location.  As of tonight (Thursday) 84 have signed up for Ventura and 54 for Burbank.  There is another demonstration at Sen. Feinstein's office.  Their target is 300 there with 87 already signed up.  These demonstrations with that many people are going to give the opportunity to the Obama-crazed misty-eyed press to say that instead of being a paid well-organized bussed-in demonstration it is an out-pouring of grass-roots citizens demanding their government health care.  All of these events are scheduled for 7:00pm.

It will be difficult for us to assemble an equally large number of opponents of nationalized health care, but I would like to get as many people out to do counter-demonstrations opposing Obamacare.  If the press don't see any opponents it gives them an opportunity to spin the event, which they will undoubtedly do no matter what.  We are going to organize counter-demonstrations for the two valley locations.

The Westside Republicans are going to do a counter-demonstration at Dianne Feinsteins office.  You can see more about their demonstration by going to their web site.

For those of you who work or live south of Mulholland it will probably be easier for you to show up at their event.

We don't want to have a situation where there is no opposition, even if we are greatly outnumbered.  If you can make it out to the demonstration on Wednesday to one of the three locations at 7:00pm, please send me an email and let me know which demonstration you can attend:

1) Ventura Blvd and Van Nuys Blvd.
2)  Burbank Blvd. and Van Nuys Blvd.
3)  Sen. Feinsteins office at Sepulveda and Santa Monica.

Let's come out and show some numbers, folks.  Don't let them get away with their staged protests.
