Cocoa Crew Review

A Compendium of Cocoa Crew's Congenial Carousing

Where It All Started

I’m not sure I like this Campaign Tactic.

I  received this in an email.  Quite frankly  have been impressed by Newt’s performance in the debates.  However,  as I have told others,  there remains in my mind some skepticism as to his integrity.   If any of you have information that either validates or refutes the claims, I would very much like to hear it.  !

 

Dear Conrad P,

I am going to describe a candidate for you right now, and I want you to think about whether or not you would support him.

This candidate was for the individual mandate that served as the model for “ObamaCare.”  He was originally for the TARP bank bailouts before he was against them.  He joined with Nancy Pelosi to promote the anti-business “global warming” agenda.

He slammed Paul Ryan’s budget plan as “extreme,” calling it “right wing social engineering.”

You might think I am talking about Mitt Romney.  Heck, you might think I’m talking about a liberal Democrat.  But I’m not.

That candidate I’m talking about is Newt Gingrich.  He is what I like to call a “counterfeit conservative.”

And I have barely even scratched the surface!

My campaign team has put together a great video that tells you more about Gingrich and his liberal positions over the years.  It tells you how he flip-flopped on a host of important issues.

And it shows, despite his claims, he is simply not a conservative.

You can take a look at the video HERE.

You might have seen recently that Mr. Gingrich traded on his former political office to land a $1.8 million lobbying contract with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Why is this so disturbing?

Because while these out-of-control federal agencies were ruining the housing market and causing millions of homeowners to lose their homes and life savings, Newt Gingrich was earning millions advising them.

At that same exact time, I was publicly declaring they needed to be stopped before they ruined the economy.

I guess Newt Gingrich and I have a different idea of what to do with federal bureaucracies.  I fight to rein them in and shut them down before they can do harm.  He pads his personal bank account while they wreck our economy.

While I was fighting environmental extremists, the out-of-control EPA, and the Soros-funded green movement, Newt Gingrich was filming commercials with Nancy Pelosi.

While I was fighting government bailouts, Newt was saying he would have voted FOR them.

Don’t be fooled by the words candidates use when they are running for office.  Look hard at their records.  My record is one of true limited government, anti-Washington, D.C. conservatism.

Newt Gingrich has a long record of liberal appeasement, flip-flopping on key issues, and lobbying for insider millions.

Millions.  That’s right.  Remember the individual mandate I mentioned earlier that Newt supported?  His healthcare group received nearly $40 MILLION in contributions from the healthcare industry.

I have rarely seen a candidate who represents so much of what is wrong with Washington and what is wrong with our political system.

We can and must demand better.

We must demand REAL conservative values.  We must demand a person who puts faith, family, and freedom ahead of all else.  And we must demand a candidate who has remained true to principle his entire career.

I believe I am that candidate, and I ask you to take a look at my Plan to Restore America at www.ronpaul2012.com.

You can tell I mean every word in it — just as I’ve meant every word I have said in public life.  And that’s something that everyone will admit, whether they agree with all of my positions or not.

With me, what you see and hear is what you get.  Wouldn’t that be a nice change?

I am the only true conservative in the top tier of candidates running for the GOP nomination.  And I ask for your support.

Together we can stop the counterfeit conservatives AND the liberals in the White House.  We can take back and Restore America Now.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

P.S.  Whether it’s flip-flopping on TARP, supporting the individual mandate that served as a model for “ObamaCare,” joining with Nancy Pelosi in support of the global-warming crowd’s radical agenda, or making millions off of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as they helped destroy our economy, Newt Gingrich is trying to pull the wool over our eyes.

He’s what I call a “counterfeit conservative.”

Here’s an ad my campaign put together explaining his record of supporting liberal policies.  Please take a moment to watch it.

And, if possible, contribute to my campaign as generously as you can to help me run this ad and get my message of liberty out with mail, internet advertising, and an all-out media blitz.

November 19, 2011

Dear Classes of ’59, ’60, and ’61and other interested classes as well:

Since we won’t be having any class anniversaries for awhile, the Committee has decided to go back to the format of having a sock hop on Saturday evening at the Rockledge Garden Club during Mosquito Beaters weekend, 9th, 10th and 11th of March, 2012, so that we can stay in touch with each other better and get to see everyone, while they are in town .

Our previous two cruises were very successful, so we are sending out information to find out who would like to go on another cruise and would like to hear from other classmates who are interested.

Here is what we know so far:

Inside cabin: $416.45 to $435.45

Outside cabin: $461.45 to $531.45 (some are obstructed views)

Balcony (Junior Suites) $891.45

Trip insurance which is recommended is from $29.00 to $59.00 per person.

Deposit is $150.00 per person plus insurance if needed.

We will have $50.00 per stateroom on board credit and depending on the

size of the group we may get a shared cocktail reception.

Valid passports (highly recommended) or birth certificates are required.

Sandee, I hope this information helps out.

It will be pleasure to work with you on this cruise.

Can You Trust A Guy Who Has Brain Farts to be a leader of the Free World

Brain farts occur when a person is trying to memorize a line or a set of lines. It is a very embarassing situation in which to find oneself. I recently was in that situation as I tried my hand at performing, in our local theater, the part of an old man who was losing it. (as a footnote … My wife suggested it was an easy part for me to play) Brain farts are no fun! The biggest problem is that when you flub your lines, you interrupt the cadence of the act. Other actors must scramble and make up lines to overcome the screwup lest the audience is turned off.

 Now lets talk about a person running for president of the US. Look at Perry forgetting the Dept of Energy … Herman Cain forgetting details of the world conflict in Libya, and Romney forgetting how long he has been married to his wife. What are Newt’s foibles I’m sure he has experienced some! Doesn’t it tell all who watch such gaffes that the rhetoric is scripted from the word go?

 Does anybody out there think these guys really understand everything they have to say on a matter of as great importance as those that must be faced by the President of the US?  No way on earth! They are told what to say by their well paid advisors. Speech writers write speeches and blurbs for the candidate,  based upon what popularity polling and other schemes suggest. Get the candidate to tell the electorate what the electorate wants to hear! That’s how the advisors make the big bucks isn’t it? “Tell’em, want they want to hear and you’ll get the nod for nomination”. That is the game they are playing.

 I may be wrong but there is only one guy is out there that is working his butt off trying to get his message  heard …not the message the media would like him to deliver or the message  his advisors tel him will be popular with the masses.  He has been delivering his message for more than thirty years. That is Ron Paul.

 If you haven’t begun to follow his campaign it is time to start. Primary/caucus time is only 45 days or so away. If we get a guy nominated who during the campaign gets brain farts because he can not remember his lines shame on us! I don’t know who said it (maybe Robert Lewis Stephenson) but there is one great saying that is appropriate here … A man who knows and knows he knows is wise … follow him. Ron Paul knows very clearly and very deep down what he is talking about.  He has kept his cadence for his entire career as a public servant.  He won’t have to deal with  brain farts!
