I have been involved with numerous events,drives, and projects over the years, but the importance of this clothes drive for me, really stands out. In this time of extreme turmoil I feel compelled to do my small part heading this drive. Men and women are fighting for us and in some cases their families are experiencing not only the absence of a loved one, but financial burdens. Donating your unwanted things to these deserving families is one thing we as individuals can do. Operation Home Front is a caring group with the mission of helping Military families in need. Please do your part, and help support our Military families.
The Homer Founders Club is sponsoring the clothes drive to help Military Families through Operation Home Front. Supporting the drive for used and new clothes are Homer Township, Americans for Prosperity, Homer Lockport Tea Party, and the Will County Tea Party Alliance. This will go from August 1st till the first week of December. For information visit www.Homerlockportteaparty.com

From beautiful Homer Glen I see numerous homes for sale, and know others are in foreclosure. People don’t want to leave their homes. Loss of income or a job is devastating to families, and forces a move due to economic reasons. Individuals in their 40’s and up experiencing loss of income and in some cases employment are forced into an economic situation they never dreamed would happen to them. What happened to drive our country into this mess? We have a mess financially locally, at our State, and Federally. http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/we-need-jobs-not-taxes-regulations
The progressive model pushed by those socialist leaning elected officials have taken so much from those that produce, and put so many restrictions on business that it is economically not viable for business to grow, employ more people. Political Correctness has joined with excessive regulation, and lawsuits to make the cost of employing people to high.
From Beautiful Homer Glen I was just taken back after seeing the Video “ The Cartell” at the Homer Lockport Tea Party meeting. This film, exposed the school system for what it really is in many cases, a “money machine.” It exposes the fact that the teachers union is in bed with the Democratic Party, and the Superintendent of schools. Huge amounts of waste and unnecessary spending are done in the name of the children. In many cases no one knows where the money is being spent, since only a very small amount goes for teacher’s salaries. When the teachers union or administration says “it” is for the children they are playing their equivalent to the Race Card. Schools are the largest portion of property tax, and can be a sink hole of waste and unneeded spending.
Property Taxes in Homer Glen rose despite the assessed values dropping because the rates went up from the various taxing districts like Schools, Fire, and Library. The taxing districts with the exception of the Township raised their levy’s. January 1st 2012 the 2% reduction in Social Security Tax will be removed, making the 2% increase in State of Illinois Tax passed by the Progressive Democrats, in the State of Illinois take more money out of our pay checks. If you make $40,000 per year you get $66 per month extra taken out of your check. http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/government-waste-rising-taxes-cut-the-debt-ceiling
From beautiful Homer Glen, I know it is somewhat dangerous everywhere, but when you leave Homer Glen, or for that matter Will County the degree of danger increases. http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/class-for-conceal-carry-is-your-2nd-amendment-right I am not saying that a trip to Chicago is dangerous. I am saying that there is a higher probability of having a problem in Cook County as compared to Will County and other Collar Counties. Flash mob attacks, carjacking, muggings, and drive by shootings form this perception. http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/the-right-to-own-a-weapon-protects-our-freedom
I believe that open and concealed carry laws which are our right according to the second amendment would end some if not the majority of the insecurity I feel when I leave Homer Glen. The “Bad” guys seek weak or easy victims. If they don’t know who is carrying a weapon, suddenly everyone becomes a deterrent to crime. The Illinois State Police is in favor of concealed carry. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1818862/posts http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-atlanta/open-carry-deters-armed-robbery-kennesaw
The Tea Party Organizers from Homer Lockport Tea Party, Joliet Tea Party, and Will County Tea Party Alliance recognize the importance of our second amendment right. We understand that carrying a gun on your person in Illinois is not legal. When you leave Illinois you can carry. The laws vary from State to State, but a conceal carry license from Utah is good in 32 States. That is why we are offering a legal class to be allowed to carry in certain States when leaving Illinois.
Our Utah Concealed Firearm Permit Class is a fun, exciting and very informative class. Our class covers everything from handgun styles, holsters and ammunition to the rules, laws and how to handle a confrontation. We provide you with all of the vital and necessary information to help you make the best decisions.
Under a Socialist Agenda we are experiencing a rapid decline in life toward that of a third world nation. People are waking up but many are still not paying attention. I we don’t stop Obama’s change we will never keep our standard of living, and loose our freedom. We just can’t take Freedom for granted. We now must fight for Freedom before it is gone.
It doesn’t matter if you are left or right, this video is about getting prepared for the coming decline which I fear this country must go through in order to return to the roots that made this country great.. Let me know your thoughts and feel free to pass along to your friends, neighbors, and family. http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/freedom-lost
Understanding that spending causes Debt, and the Elected officials need to stop using our money to buy our votes with doing things for us. Remember the only money government has comes from the taxpayer.
From beautiful Homer Glen, listening to the radio, I hear the jobless rate is now 9.1%. That high number helps me understand why there are so many homes abandoned and why foreclosures are rising. Business is struggling because people have less disposable income. The 9.1% number does not include people who ran out of unemployment, and those that just gave up looking for work. The actual unemployment rate is ? In any event there is a big problem.
From beautiful Homer Glen, I was sitting at my desk, listening to Debbie K and the Freedom Band sing “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”. It was very moving, made me think about all our country has been through, and how we have worked through good and bad times. God Bless our Military! Since the founding of our Nation, they have been our backbone. They are like Michael the Arch Angel and his legions of angels standing firmly for GOOD. Preserving and protecting the People, and Constitution of the United States of America from enemies both foreign and domestic is their Oath. They are the reason we speak English instead of German or some other language. They are the reason I have the ability to write this and you can read it. They truly are our protectors and have always accomplished that mission. We in the United States are a free people. I wrote the following in 1968, and find it appropriate today.
