We have so many things to be thankful for! I am so thankful for this great United States of America and for the freedoms that we enjoy! May we always fight to keep those freedoms!
Thanksgiving feast slightly more expensive
"Turkey prices are down some this year despite the fact that, according to Agriculture Department estimates, turkey production has been slightly lower in 2010 than in 2009 and supplies of turkey in cold storage are below last year's level," John Anderson, an AFBF economist, said in a statement. "This suggests that retailers are being fairly aggressive in featuring turkeys in special sales and promotions."
Anderson added that the change in price of this year's Thanksgiving meal is in line with the modest changes seen in the overall price level this year. He said that at $4.35 per person, a traditional Thanksgiving feast is still a better deal than most fast-food value meals, plus it's a wholesome, home-cooked meal.

I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV

Fight and you may die, run and you'll live- at least a while. And, dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they will never take OUR FREEDOM!!! - William Wallace

And if you see accounts that I've said something that makes you say, "That's not like J Paul," you're probably right.
Campaigns are no longer in the hands of candidates. Campaign finance law, primarily the McCain Feingold Campaign Finance Act, has moved election campaigns into the hands of anyone with money. Organizations called 527s, for the clause of the tax code that governs their activities, are free to accept and spend unlimited money for political campaigns.
While candidates and their campaigns are strictly limited, 527s are allowed to say just about anything without revealing who they are, without the sanction of good manners, and without having to prove the truth of their assertions. All they have to do is state the name of the organization presenting the advertisement.
It can take years to track down the location of a 527 and even longer to discover the identities of its donors, but the damage has done, the election is long over.
So if you have questions about my campaign for House District 59 State Representative, please call me at 759-4157 or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org or check www.jpaulbrown.com.
I am accountable, and I want to visit with you.

I felt real good about the debate in Grand Junction on Saturday. We discovered some very interesting beliefs of my opponent:
He favors the Cap and Trade Bill known as the Cap and Tax bill which will significantly raise prices to consumers on electricity, gasoline, and other energy needs. It will also raise transportation costs so food prices and everything else will go up. I oppose this bill!
He favors Obamacare which will destroy our health care system, will cost Colorado $1B, will create a monstrous new federal bureaucracy, and will ultimately result in the rationing of health care among many other problems. I oppose Obamacare!
He favors the misnamed Clean Water Restoration Act which will allow the federal government to come on private property any time they want. I oppose this bill!
He is a liberal Democrat that is trying to run as a conservative and he has a lot of money, more than 70% which comes from outside Colorado (let's show the Democrats that they can't buy this election).
We are in the home stretch! Please do all you can to help me and other conservatives take back Colorado and our Nation. Thanks, J.Paul

|Yesterday we received the endorsements of the Colorado Contractors Association and the Lincoln Club of Colorado. We are very appreciative of this support for our campaign. I put signs out and talked to voters in Archuleta County yesterday as well as attended the 912 meeting at Bayfield with speakers Scott Tipton Republican candidate for Congress and Walker Stapleton Republican candidate for State Treasurer, both very good men! We must have a Republican victory in November to turn this Country back to the founding principles that have sustained us for so many years!|

2nd Tim.3:15-17 "And that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is inspired of God and is porfitable for teaching, for reproof, for teaching
in rigteousness, that the man may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."

Thought for the Day
"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer." --Benjamin Franklin

The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me: 'When one rules over
men in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light
of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after
rain that brings the grass from the earth.' 2 Samuel 23:3-4

Animal agriculture was under attack at the Animal Rights 2010 Conference and the Humane Society of the United States-hosted Taking Action for Animals, two of the nation's largest animal rights events. Both meetings were held in Washington, D.C. during July 2010.
AR 2010 and TAFA brought together more than 1,000 activists to discuss the political strategy of the animal rights movement. Speakers at both conferences provided participants with tactics to target the animal agriculture industry through demonstrations, litigation, and ballot initiative campaigns. Animal activist leaders taught attendees how to utilize social media tools to fundraise and share videos from undercover operations.
Key Quotes from AR 2010 and TAFA Speakers:
"These people are rednecks and we are superior."
- Bryan Monell, an activist who has frequently obtained illicit employment at farms and research facilities in order to obtain undercover video footage
"We should distinguish our message from less meat, because what we want is no meat."
- Carrie Packwood Freeman, Activist and Professor at Georgia State University
"Owning animals is the equivalent of slavery."
- Hope Bohanec, In Defense of Animals
"I have no problem with breaking and entering, destroying labs, burning buildings, and busting open cages."
- Camille Hankins, Win Animals Rights and spokesperson for Animal Liberation Front
"Any state with an initiative process is on our radar."
- Jennifer Hillman, Humane Society of the United States

The campaign is going great. Last week we received several major endorsements. We have received a number of good contributions. I attended the Montezuma County Fair and we were in the Durango Fiesta Parade and attended the Chuckwagon Cookoff. We have signs and would appreciate everyone putting one up. The quote of the day is from Thomas Jefferson.
"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Edward Carrington, 1787

On Saturday, July 3rd, we have two parades going on at the same time in Bayfield and in Pagosa. At 10:00am, my wife Debbie and my sons will be in the Bayfield parade and I will be in Pagosa Springs. Bring your horse, four-wheeler, or just come and walk along with us to show your support. You should be there at 9:00am for the line up.
Then on Sunday, July 4th, come and join me in the Durango parade at 6:00pm. You should be there at 5:00 if you want to be in the parade.
Our nation's founding fathers were inspired by God to establish a land of freedom and opportunity. They pledged their lives and their sacred honor to make that happen. I am proud of that heritage and grateful to God and to these brave men and women who sacrificed all they had to give us this great gift. If you feel the same way I do, then walk with me in these parades. Bring your family and friends and let's get some people excited about this message.
I appreciate all your support!

|I had a great day yesterday starting out with a dedication at the train museum. I met part of the Harper family. The train is a wonderfull asset to our community. The cattlemen's picnic was delicious and fun. The car show downtown was spectacular and was a benefit for "Hospice". "Who's Your Daddy" was fun and was a benefit for the Discovery Museum. I ended the day by auctioning of pies at fundraiser for the 5th and 6th grade Ignacio girls basketball team. I am always amazed at the generosity of so many in our great community. Keep it up! Happy Father's Day!|

Last evening I attended the retirement party for Lynn Westburg of San Juan Basin Health. When I was a County Commissioner I grew to have the utmost respect for Lynn. She could strech her budget like no one I have ever known. She got most of her funding from sources other than the Counties.She deserves our thanks and respect. The party was attended by many past County Commisioners and health board members as well as many faithfull empoyees, friends, and family. May God be with you, Lynn.
