Contact ATF: Oppose 5.56 M855 Ball Ammunition Ban

by National Shooting Sports Foundation. | Monday, February 6th, 2015
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has announced it is seeking to ban commonplace 5.56 M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.” ATF is seeking public comment on the proposal, so all industry employees, target shooters and gun owners should contact ATF to oppose this unnecessary ban, which is truly a solution in search of a problem and that raises serious questions about executive agency attitude and overreach. Stopped cold on Capitol Hill, this action appears to be the Obama administration’s attempt to pursue gun control by other means.

PARCC Testing Begins February 16th – Have You Protected Your Child?

Protect Your Child From PARCC – Facts & Checklist

By Ohioans Against Common Core. 

The PARCC Performance-based testing for grades 3 – 8 and high school is scheduled to begin February 16th. The End-of-Course testing follows, beginning April 13th. (Block schedule high schools administered related end-of-course tests in December 2014.)

This means for the better part of three months, Ohio students will be prepping, practicing and taking tests. This leaves the month of May with no academic purpose in what’s become the “testing factory” classroom. Students are losing a third of their school year to test related activities. This is educational malpractice. The tests are not for the benefit of the student. They serve the system, special interests, corporatists and politicians.

A Year In Review

10 minute video of  “A year in review of 2014″  Hocking Hills Tea Party Patriots.

HHTPP 2014 Year in Review

2014 was a year of much change and growth for the Hocking Hills TEA Party Patriots. Rather than simply responding to the most heated battle at the moment on the political landscape… we regrouped, polished our weapons and reformed our lines. We were then able to advance and march on more effectively than before. We prayerfully proceeded with a long-term vision for the Hocking Hills TEA Party Patriots reflecting our heart’s desire; which is to stay true to the passion that birthed our movement and promote those “tea party” principles and values to the public. As fellow Americans gain knowledge and inspiration through our grassroots movement and then go forth and act on those principles… we have succeeded in accomplishing our goals…. even if some of those Americans choose not to associate officially with a TEA Party group! We believe as we attempt to keep that pure heart before the Lord, He will guide us and bless our patriotic work, because we do not focus solely on what our organization needs but rather what our community, state and nation need. Maintaining that mindset and staying diligent in prayer will help us to avoid the pitfalls of many other politically minded organizations that seem to exist for the sole purpose of their own preservation instead of the preservation our nation and ultimately our freedom!

Obamacare adds 450,000 Ohioans to Medicaid rolls

By Jason Hart | December 16, 2014 | Ohio Watchdog

Gov. John Kasich’s Obamacare expansion has put 450,941 Ohioans on Medicaid, outpacing his administration’s projections by 24 percent.

Instead of tempering leftist support for the expansion, budget-busting enrollment is portrayed as good news for Ohio; Obamacare sticks federal taxpayers with 100 percent of Medicaid expansion benefit costs through 2016.

In a Cleveland.com news story last month, Northeast Ohio Media Group reporter Robert Higgs asserted higher-than-expected enrollment “provides a fiscal argument for Gov. John Kasich as he lobbies the General Assembly to continue expanded Medicaid when he presents his budget proposals early next year.”

“I hope that common sense will prevail and that we won’t mess with what we see as working well,” Cathy Levine of the Universal Health Care Action Network told Higgs for a story published at Cleveland.com the following week.

When not promoting a federal Balanced Budget Amendment, Kasich has pressed the Ohio General Assembly to spend more federal dollars on his Obamacare expansion. A $2.5 billion appropriation Kasich rammed through the Ohio Controlling Board in 2013 expires June 30, assuming the money lasts until then.
