Thank you, Susan Wise, for threatening the Sentinel with the loss of advertising dollars if they do not allow WSCA to control what news is printed. That gives me one good reason to forget about doing any shopping at Bassett Furniture. I’m sure that the Virginia based manufacturer of furniture, which is the oldest furniture manufacturer in the U.S. will be surprised to learn that one store selling their product has publicly stated that no liberals need to shop there. Haven’t any of your business consultants ever told you not to mix politics and business?

Ms. Wise, it sounds like the same person who wrote Kent Carson’s letter also wrote yours. They are eerily alike and there was a call put out for letters to the Editor about the “rally”. I believe it even stated if you “couldn’t write one that someone would help you do it.” 

Shame on you for threatening the newspaper like that. That is something Jesse Jackson would do, support me or I will destroy you. In other words, if you don’t stand with me you are against me. That kind of sounds like Mesa County Republican Party and WSCA tactics.

A real newspaper prints both sides of the issues whether they agree or not. Maybe they did not see your event as that big a deal after all it was well supported with only about 150 people.

It is surprising awkward when a Democrat
activist and a Tea Party activist find themselves in agreement.
It is also probably very effective.

  Pre last election, Tipton held a meet and greet at Bassett Furniture
that was arranged by Jennifer Bailey.

Problem; how do you make the public understand that their politics are
controlled by just a few people who are motivated by greed?  If the
Democrats do it, it lacks credibility in being labeled partisan
politics.  If the TEA Party does it, it becomes treason in the eyes of
the very people whose eyes you are trying to open.  There is a balance
that is achievable, but for us it’s right on the razor’s edge but the
effort is imperative to the TEA Party’s reform platform.  What you can
do by simple association, we can only do with a smoking gun.

Have you noticed how often Jennifer Bailey’s name keeps popping up as
related to the politics of profit?  We have. Gary Bailey is the current
president of WSCA.  Ruth Ehlers, no matter how you spell it is the
current chair of Mesa County Republicans.  Marty Chazen is a vice
chair.  Kevin McCarney is 2nd Vice Chair.  All have their roots in WSCA
board seats.  Kevin McCarney is a current WSCA board member.  If you ask
what WSCA’s goal is, the answer will be to co-opt the Republican Party
from the inside.

The illusion is the inclusion of the Conservative Tea Party within the
Republican Party.  It is a created perception that is designed to keep
the grassroots Tea Party out, while appearing to be inclusive in the
public eye. The key to understanding is motivation.
