St Louis Push Back

During a townhall meeting in St Louis MO, that Claire McCaskill office held, one big Tea Party broke out, or better yet a Healthcare Tea Party.
On hand was Americans for Prosperity (Ah yes, the good old boys..and girls, too)

One party goer asks a very tough question to Ms. McCaskill & Pelosi & Reid and well you know.... Obama.
Video 2

Then, to make your heart reel with pride a US Soldier demands apology from senator McCaskill at the Townhall meeting.

Missourians are a proud bunch. They truly are Defender of Prosperity.

Group Defenders of Prosperity

Patients First is my new American Patriots- Defenders of Prosperity that has arisen from the grassroots efforts and Americans for Prosperity.
Our Government, especially the POTUS are pushing hard to get a bill for healthcare reform passed and signed in to law by August 1st, 2009. This bill which has just come out of committee and back to the house has been cut down from 1200 pages to a little over 1000. And now Obama wants to ram rod this through to law.

I have read this current bill, and it's very scary.

Put organization like Patients First are pushing back, and pushing HARD.

Who are they: Patients First is a project of Americans for Prosperity (AFP), a 501(c)4 non-profit organization recognized by the IRS. AFP is the nation’s premier grassroots organization committed to advancing every individual’s right to economic freedom and opportunity.

Cap & Trade under attack

New Defenders of Prosperity-
David McArthur, vice president of the 52-year-old family operation of McArthur's Bakery of St. Louis, Mo.

David McArthur sees the Cap & Trade legislation that just past the House and is on it way to the Senate, as a business killer (and rightfully so) and it targets every aspect of his business that relies on the forms of energy that the American Clean Energy and Security Act points to.
David told Fox News that "We make our product with electricity, we bake it with gas, we refrigerate and freeze it with electricity and we distribute it with gas and oil and that it will cost him about an additional $15K more a year.
But, business owners, like David, along with taxpayers are fighting back.
McArthur, who penned a scathing letter to his congressmen Carnahan (D-MO), is not alone in taking the message directly to their congressman. Dozens of small protests were organized at the end of June at federal buildings and outside the offices of national lawmakers who voted for the bill by scads of business owners and taxpayer alike.

You can read the full story here.
Keep it going Mr. McArthur, real Americans are with you.

My first Defenders of Prosperity

Welcome to the American Patriots- Defenders of Prosperity. AKA: APDP
For the record this blog will focus on those who stand up and defend Freedom, Democracy, the ideals of the founding fathers and the US constitution that they inscribed in to our hearts and souls that is true America.

On this day is my opening post.
On this day we celebrate the birth of our nation, 233 years ago.

July 4th, 2009.

And what better way to open the American Patriots- Defenders of Prosperity blog then with a story of two of my family members, one of which has gone to Iraq and returned with a Metal of Valor award for his bravery on the battlefield.

John Marra (picture with his family) is an Army Reserve Staff Sgt. who fought terrorists and saved a soldier's life in Iraq. His squad leader was seriously wounded during an ambush. John jumped in to action and performed CPR in the back of an Iraqi police truck while Al Qaeda terrorists fired at them as the driver sped away.
John is not a quitter and his persistence paid off. The squad leader, who had stopped breathing for a time, survived.
John is a true blue American Patriot. Damn proud of him!

The other, Johns wife and my niece Kimberly (Pictured with John), is heading in to the Army next month, to depart for nine weeks of Army training at Ft. Jackson, S.C. with goals only a strong heart person could withstand.
Kimberly says this, which makes her an America Patriot from this bloggers stand point.
"I always wanted to go to the military, I guess I really believe in what our Army is doing in terms of what is going on in the world."
Kimberly, with a Communication Degree from the University of Nevada wants to obtain leadership and communication skills so she can pursue a career in foreign affairs.
Knowing her and her determination to succeed, I believe she will make a big difference in American foreign affairs. And in my opinion, she'll do a much better job then Joe Biden.

God bless you both.
You are true American Patriots- Defenders of Prosperity!
