The "Sentinel and Enterprise" editorial, February 23, 2012 addresses the inability of our current and past presidents to bring to bear an effective energy policy. Now, we again see President Obama, in his typical fashion, finding multiple excuses as to why he remains unable to control the rising cost of energy, especially gasoline. So once again we go without an energy program and the people suffer. In Obama's "big" energy speech earlier this week, he embarrassed himself by announcing his inability to address the rising cost of fuel. He made multiple excuses as to why he couldn't impact supply and demand, but surprised everyone as he announced a new clean energy program that was going to solve all the nation's energy woes: ALGAE. Read the "Sentinel's" editorial:
Secure Communities may be a political albatross to Deval Patrick, but for the County Sheriffs, it is a realistic approach to law enforcement. In 2013 Secure Communities will be required, but the County Sheriffs are fighting to ensure that they can begin reporting ID information on criminals to Homeland Security now.

A bill has been filed in Boston that would force Governor Devel Patrick to join the federal program Secure Communnities. As we heard in a presentation to the TWTP several months ago, the Patrick administration has made a unilateral decision to opt-out of the Secure Communities mandate saying that it would lead to "racial profiling of immigrants". In addition to the article in the "Sentinel and Enterprise" discussing the Bill, Sheriff Lew Evangelidis was interviewed by the "Sentinel and Enterprise" and discusses Secure Communities. Sheriff Evangilidis was also interviewed by Juan Williams on the O'Reilly Factor. Read the "Sentinel's" articles and watch the interview video:

Columnist, Kathleen Parker seems to disagree with the Tea Party. We feel that the Tea Party Patriots are a source of good in the country, many disagree. "Sentinel and Enterprise" July 31, 2011: http://www.sentinelandenterprise.com/opinion/ci_18589400
The October meeting of the Twin City Tea Party will be held on Monday, October 27, 2014 at 6:30 pm at Barber's Crossing Restaurant, 175 Leominster Road (Rt 12), Sterling, MA in the Chocksett Room (downstairs). Barber's Crossing is off interstate 190 as it intersects with Rt 12. It is located at the Sterling-Leominster border. This is the last meeting before the November 4 elections. We are planning a candidate and ballot issue forum where we will discuss and examine the ballot questions and perhaps look into the future of the balance of power in Boston and in DC. The Twin City Tea Party is non-partisan. All are welcome to attend. There are no cost, dues or fees to attend. Dinner at Barbers Crossing is available at the attendees expense.
Last night was our first meeting at our new location. We thank Barbers Crossing and especially Carol for their support and willingness to host our group. May we have a long and equally enjoyable opportunity to work together!
SPECIAL ALERT, IMMEDIATE CHANGE IN MEETING LOCATION: Cornerstone's Restaurant has been sold and will not reopen as a restaurant. We are currently in the process of locating a new venue for our monthly meetings, effective September 2014. The Twin City Tea Party thanks the management of Cornerstone's for allowing the TCTP to hold our meetings at their restaurant and for serving us over these past several years. Our special thanks and appreciation goes to Nancy for her dedicated service and friendship over the past two years. We will miss you Nancy and wish you well! Your conservative friends.
Don't Tread on Me!
