Another email that I couldn't resist posting. Governor Le Page is a breathe of fresh air...common sense never sounded so good....read and share. Again I apologize for not knowing how to fix my spacing problem - just arrow down to where the article starts.
Maine 's New
Governor --- In case you haven't
heard about this guy before, his name will stick in your
The new Maine
LePage is making New Jersey 's Chris Christie look timid.
He isn't afraid to say what he thinks. Judging by the comments, every time
he opens his mouth, his popularity goes
He brought down the house at
his inauguration when he shook his fist toward the media box and said,
"You're on notice! I've inherited a financially troubled State to run.
Observe...cover what we do...but don't whine if I don't waste time
responding to your every whim just for your
During his campaign for
Governor, he was talking to commercial fishermen who are struggling
because of federal fisheries rules. They complained that 0bama brought his
family to Bar Harbor and AcadiaNational Park for a long Labor Day holiday
and found time to meet with union leaders, but wouldn't talk to the
fishermen. LePage replied, "I'd tell him to go to hell and get out of my
State." The Lame Stream Media crucified LePage, but he jumped 6 points in
the pre-election poll.
The Martin Luther King
incident was a political sandbag, which brought him national exposure. The
'lame stream' media crucified him, but word on the street is very
positive. The NAACP specifically asked LePage to spend MLK Day visiting
black inmates at the Maine State Prison. He told them that he would meet
with ALL inmates, regardless of race, if he were to visit the prison. The
NAACP balked and then put out a news release claiming falsely that he
refused to participate in any MLK events. He read it in the paper for the
1st time the next morning while being driven to an event and went
ballistic because none of the reporters had called him for comment before
running the NAACP release.
He arrived at that event
& said in front of a TV camera, "If they want to play the race card on
me they can kiss my ass", and he reminded them that he has an adopted
black son from Jamaica and that he attended the local MLK Breakfast every
year that he was mayor of Waterville. (He started his morning there on MLK
He then stated that there's
a right way and a wrong way to meet with the Governor, and he put all
special interests on notice that press releases, media leaks, and all
demonstrations would prove to be the wrong way. He said any other group,
which acted like the NAACP could expect to be at the bottom of the
Governor's priority list!
He then did the following,
and judging from local radio talk show callers, his popularity increased
even more: The State employees union complained because he waited until 3
P.M. before closing State offices and facilities and sending non-emergency
personnel home during the last blizzard. The prior Governor would often
close offices for the day with just a forecast before the first flakes.
(Each time the State closes for snow, it costs the taxpayers about $1
million in wages for no work in return.)
LePage was CEO of the
Marden's chain of discount family bargain retail stores before election as
governor. He noted that State employees getting off work early could still
find lots of retail stores open to shop. So, he put the State employees on
notice by announcing: "If Marden's is open, Maine is
He told State employees: "We
live in Maine in the winter, for heaven's
sake, and should know how to drive in it. Otherwise, apply for a State job
in Florida !"
Governor LePage symbolizes
what America needs; Refreshing politicians
who aren't self-serving and who exhibit common

I really love this
This is one of the better
e-mails I have received in a long time! I hope this makes its way around
the USA several times

"THE LAW IS THE LAW So "if"
the US government determines that it
is against the law for the words "under God" to be on our money, then, so
And "if" that same
government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used in or on
a government installation, then, so be it.
I say, "so be it," because I

What do you all think???? If
this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop
giving in to the "minority opinions" and begin, once again, to represent
the "majority" of ALL of the American people.
