Convention of States

by eeff

I have posted a couple times about this group.
I got an in distress e-mail the other day !

" The NC House of Representatives has decided that the Article V Convention of States Project isn’t important enough to even consider right now.  Apparently they aren’t particularly concerned with the increasingly out of control, power grabbing federal government.  Apparently they don’t have a problem with our state authority being stripped away and claimed by the national government.  Apparently they are just fine with decisions for North Carolinians being made in Washington, DC."

So I thought I should post this e-mail to show cracks in the Project.

I'll post the text of the request below

Saturday Morning Home Repair

by eeff

The Saturday Morning Home Repair Blog (SMHRB) is where we gather to discuss the many and varied aspects of home repair.  Some here are trained professionals.  Some, talented DIYers. All are welcome.  Please feel encouraged to ask questions, share successes, lament sags, drips and cracks and, as always, share any advice that you have for the rest of us.
I'd like to show you the effort I put into the steel & sheet metal racks.

This project was done in 4 or 5 stages, I had to put something into the wall to make it strong enough to hang an 18 inch arm on. Then I had to make something bolt on to the wall. Then the drywall had to go up & be painted.
It only took a couple hours at the end to bolt up the finished product. But I would guess I had well over 300 man hours into it before it was bolted up ! I had help in spots, but I did 80 percent of this myself !

As usual I didn't take a picture of that wall before I started.
The outside wall studs are 6" studs by .065 or 16ga.

so I order 2" x 2" x .120 wall square tubing.
I also got a length of 3/4" x 095 round tubing.
along with 3" x 3/16 flat strap.
I drilled a series of holes in a template plate so everything was spaced the same.

there was 5 2 x 2 pieces & one short one like this.

I had help cutting the metal up

there was 75 or so pieces of the 3/4 tubing cut 2 3/8" long
then I welded a 3/8 jam nut on them.

Convention of States

by eeff

I've wrote about this movement before. I'm on their mailing list.
I get at least 3 e-mails a week about what they are up to.

They have things going on in 29 states now !

I haven't seen anyone else bring this up here. Should we be concerned ?

NC Patriots,

We’re getting closer every day to getting our NC Convention of States resolution passed through the NC Legislature!

It’s time to get to work!  Please call AND email your NC House Representative and your NC Senator and urge them to support House Joint Resolution 48.  Our resolution is currently in the Judiciary Committee.  We do not yet know the date it will be considered, but it could be passed on for a floor vote on the same day.  So we need to be busy!  Let your representatives know you support House Joint Resolution 48 and you expect them to do the same.

Go to http://www.ncleg.net/... for information about your representatives and how to call and email them.

Please don’t delay – make those 2 calls and send those 2 emails right away.  It won’t take long.  You only need to say you support House Joint Resolution 48 (refer to it by that name) and urge your representative to do the same.  Leaving a message is fine, just be brief and clear about why you are calling.  Your country is counting on you!
Thank you and God bless you!

Mike Faulkenberry

North Carolina State Director

George Takei's Message to Alabama

George Takei

this just came up on my facebook page with #LuvUAlabama !

Alabama just gave SCOTUS the finger by halting marriage equality there despite federal orders. Couples, let's respond! Whether gay or straight, post a photo on FB or Twitter giving AL the "wedding finger" and tagging ‪#‎LuvUAlabama‬. Tag your state (e.g. ‪#‎NY‬) to join our nationwide map!
