May the Tea Party live on forever
The Community Voice:
I see that Ron Lowe is at it again, freely smearing and slandering the good name of the Tea Party while carrying water for President Obama, who has now unmistakably proven himself a shameless liar of colossal proportions.
• “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
• “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your plan.”
• “We will lower your premiums by $2,500 per year.”
Remember those charming little gems? They’ve already become a running joke, on the order of “the check is in the mail,” “of course I’ll still respect you in the morning," and, “we’re from the government, and we’re here to help you.”
What’s next? No, wait, let me guess – “the IRS cannot abuse your medical records.”
Mr Lowe has long made a practice of sending out his DNC talking points, scatter-shot-style, hither and yon to whatever local papers will run them, and in last week’s The Community Voice, he hit print again with his demagogic letter, “They’re not patriots.”
It’s patently evident that Mr. Lowe is scared of the Tea Party – not only because they were among the first to recognize His Wonderfulness for the duplicitous sham and fraud we now know him to be – but also because they’ve shown themselves to constitute the only bright and promising prospect for returning the spineless GOP to its principled roots, and thus providing this land with a true alternative to an increasingly stifling enslavement on the Democrat Party plantation.
Frankly, the Tea Party (TEA: Taxed Enough Already) is easily the best thing that’s happened to the common political life of the American Republic in the past quarter century.
May they live long and prosper.
Gateway to College an option for students
The Community Voice:
I highly recommend going to the Gateway to College Program for all students who are lacking credits for their high school diploma.
The program is so beneficial; it helps you get your high school diploma and earn college credits at the same time. This program has turned my life around. I never thought it was possible to actually like going to school.
One of the reasons I love this program is because I actually feel like someone cares about my education and me.
At Gateway to College, I have a close relationship with my teachers. It also made me open up; by this I mean I am not afraid to ask for help when I need it. The teachers have office hours so that when you need help they are there for you. Gateway to College has helped me with my attendance as well.
I used to never go to school and was a truant, but now I feel like I have the help I need from my teachers and counselor, which makes me a happy student who enjoys being at school every day.
Students should apply for the Gateway to College program because it’s a completely free program and you earn a high school diploma, which every student dreams of getting. Don’t settle for a GED if you can get a high school diploma. On top of getting your diploma, you earn college credits at the same time.
It’s a great opportunity, and I really recommend it to students who have struggled in the past. If you’re worried about transportation, Gateway will help you.
Gateway is a fun, comfortable environment to be in. You go on fun field trips and the program pays for it all.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity. Gateway to College is just a phone call (707) 778-3630 or email Gateway@SantaRosa.edu away.
