Congress Needs an Enema!

March 18, 2010

Rene Oberer

We received an email today from Rene Oberer, a Conservative challenging Rep. Mike Turner (R) for US Representative of Ohio’s 3rd District.  The email challenged Mr. Turner’s use of earmarks.

Certainly, in a perfect world any conservative would be opposed to earmarks, but in today’s Congressional politics they seem inevitable.  The practice is ingrained.  So, while we understand Rep. Turner’s desire to return some of that money to our community, we agree that earmarks do more harm than good.  To stop the earmarks, you have to change the system by removing the people enabling the status quo.

That said, we applaud Rene’s efforts to bring light to this issue and support her in trying to get rid of earmarks entirely.  Maybe the earmarks that litter this god forsaken health care bill will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back?

We at BeHeardNotHerded.com have no allegiance to career politicians.  We believe that citizens should do their civic duty by serving public office, then return to their private lives.  To that end, we support Rene’s efforts to challenge Mr. Turner.  Congress needs an enema!

Made in the USA

The Be Heard, Not Herded crew with Steve Chabot

We were fortunate to attend the Voice of America TEA Party in West Chester, OH on Saturday, September 5, 2009. Over 18,000 patriots attended this important event. Several elected officials, including John Boehner, Jean Schmidt, and Mike Turner attended. We even got to spend a few minutes with Steve Chabot.

We handed out over 2,000 of our Be Heard, Not Herded bumper stickers in less than 1 hour. People loved them! We also brought a few of our Be Heard, Not Herded t-shirts and quickly sold out of them. Why? There were at least 20 other shirts available for sale. OURS WAS THE ONLY T-SHIRT THAT WAS MADE IN THE USA!

Many of the other shirts we saw were made in Mexico…your NAFTA dollars at work! We also saw shirts made in the Dominican Republic and China. Every one of them sported a pro-American, patriotic message.

Our advice…if you’re going to a Tea Party, town hall meeting, or other event and plan to buy patriotic merchandise, check the label.  Over the next few weeks we will be announcing a new line of bumper stickers and t-shirts. All of our items will be MADE IN THE USA…JUST LIKE US!
