Tea Party Has Answers 

In response to Mick McMenamenuto's (hey, it's a fake name anyway) claim that Tea Partiers have no answers but just want to complain, you are wrong.

The answer to the gigantic government deficit is to stop wasteful spending in Congress, in state government, and on the city commission. Stop pork barrel projects. (Yes, that includes federal funding for building frog tunnels in Sunriver, too.) Cut Congressional pay and reduce the size of our oversized, bloated, wasteful government. Open up our natural resources to the vast resources of oil, coal and natural gas right here in our country so we can stop depending on the Middle East for our energy.

Develop all those alternative energy sources such as wind and solar, and build the safest, most fuel-efficient and most reliable vehicles in the world... and build them in the U.S. Bring all those jobs back to America and away from foreign countries who are getting rich at our expense. Yes, Tea Partiers have answers...If only someone would just bother to listen to the common sense that Tea Partiers represent.

The first tea party occurred in Boston Harbor back in 1773 as a protest over excessive taxation of imported tea to the colonies from Great Britain. In that spirit, the new Tea Party movement is a protest against irresponsible out-of-control government spending and lack of accountability by Congress and it has a following of ordinary concerned Americans

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
