I was the first guest speaker of the new Clay County Pachyderm Club last night at Tommy’s Restaurant. We had a decent showing and this club is really starting to get off of the ground. We want you to be a part of it if you live in Clay County and our next meeting will be held August 13th, 2009. So come on out!!!

The basic point of the Pachy’s is to give conservatives and Republicans a social atmosphere to get together and discuss politics and current happenings in the country. This is something that is sorely needed in America because for some reason Americans seem to think that discussing politics is not necessary. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at andrew.hm.palmer@gmail.com if you want more information about the Pachy’s. I expect to see you at our next meeting!!

The highlight of the evening was the fact that Representative Jerry Nolte showed up unannounced. He was the only Representative from Clay County to do so. This was a great experience because we got to sit and really talk to one of our elected representatives. Those in district 33 should be pleased with the representation that they receive from Mr. Nolte. Well spoken, believes in being educated on the issues, spoke of his belief in bipartisanship, and seems to really be working toward the good of the state.

Mr. Nolte brought a brief report from the capitol. He has been working closely with Senator Ridgeway to get a bill passed that makes alcohol vaporizers illegal. Just yet another way that some of our bright youth and adults to booze it up. For those that don’t know what an alcohol vaporizer is, it is a device that scientists use to actually quicken the addiction to alcohol in lab animals. Yeah, I am not kidding. The governor signed the bill into law, SB 26. He also spoke of the Immigration Reform Bill HB 390. This bill addresses undocumented migrants access to state colleges and other things revolving around the immigration issue. As for the next session, Rep. Nolte wants to look at auditing the FBI sex offenders database for any undocumented migrants in the state of Missouri. If found they would be turned over to the INS and deported. I look forward to seeing this bill come to fruition. I appreciated the fact as well that Rep. Nolte spoke out so strongly against Cap and Trade. Nice to see a representative willing to speak out against Federal legislation.

We hope to see you at the next meeting!
