The Granger is in Sacramento

I started this thread to communicate from Sacramento, CA where I'm at the CA GOP Convention that starts at 9AM.

It took me about 4 1/2 hours to get to Sacramento and an hour in traffic to get to my hotel.

I passed banners welcoming delegates to the CA GOP Convention, a Scientology Building, a Mason Hall, a school and park protesting closure, and the mayor was about to deliver a message to the residents, some 4000 people .. pretty interesting beginning, eh?

Sacramento smells like pizza. I have a number of invitations to events, but I'm going to wait until I register and set my calander and I will post it tomorrow. Ao right now, my plan is to not think about pizza, and go to the convention hall at 9AM register for events and post them when my schedule is set.

OK. Here I am in Sacramento. Wow.

((((((((fishy))))))) BIG congratulations!!!

How AWESOME for you and them. This morning a flock of crows passed overhead and was headed your way.. means LOVE coming to you.

Speaking of how to grow.. one lady from last night was going on and on about in indoor hydroponic and other support businesses for growing..

Free at last; free at last, Thank God Allmighty the GOP is free to talk about cannabis at last! AMEN

BIG congratulations on your event ((((((((fishy)))))))) seriously, that is AWESOME!

:)

It was AMAZING. This town has a population of just over 300, and at least 350 people attended. I was hoarse, talked for 6 hours straight - people were lining up to learn what we were doing. The featured speaker was a naturopath that I REALLY wanted to chat with, but I hardly even got to eat, we were just talking the whole time. We went home with our only regret being we had not had a chance to meet Claudia Keyworth, the speaker. (Check into her work, awesome lady!) Well, we dragged out exhausted butts to the hot pool, and sat there and chatted with this couple for about fifteen minutes, just awesome people. And I mean we were TALKING, about the real situation in the world, the kind of conversations usually reserved for your closest friends and allies, like here at the DP. ;)
It took a while in the dark to realize it was the speaker and her husband - we had a GREAT visit with them, much better than the thirty seconds I would have gotten at the event.
I am so excited about the things that are coming together, I don't even have time to tell stories at the DP right now.... How is THAT for busy with happy work?
I saw the write-up on Karl's visit last night. I am glad to see you made it out without getting arrested! ;)
Hugs, G!

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Welcome to Sac

This is where I currently reside so welcome to you. I hope your stay is safe and that you get a lot done for Liberty while here! I actually work at a hotel, but I don't think you are staying at that one ;) The only reason I mention it is because it's an extended stay and we have the best rates in Sac for what we offer... sorry I'm on call and can't turn off the sales pitch :D Hope you have a good stay :)

Shoot...

had I paid attention better I could have hooked you up with a discount :| I remember reading the other thread about you coming here...So sorry about that

Isaiah 2:4
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

I'll be here tomorrow

and if you get up in time, you can come to the convention center Hyatt Regency D/E free event, listen to a panel of Liberty candidates talk about the future of the GOP. I'll be at the prayer breakfast but plan to go see as much as I can, as the panel starts at 8AM.. .. I'll try to be there before 10. voting is at 11 AM.

I appreciate the very kind offer, and hope you have the opportunity to take me up on this one tomorrow.

I really wish I could

Unfortunately with my job I go on call from saturday 2pm to monday morning at 8am. 42 straight hours. I can leave, but only if I'm able to make it back in 30 mins to help people. Saturday, was super busy and I'm sure today will be as well, given it's the first weekend of the month and I have about 5 reservations coming in >.<

It would be super awesome to be able to come over and listen to the Liberty candidates and hang out with you. And, I would definitely love coming to the prayer breakfast. One rather large downside to this job (which I am extremely thankful to have a job) is that I don't get to go to my church and I miss it very much.

Well... enjoy it for me and I hope it goes really well! I'll pray the Liberty candidates are filled with the right words as they describe the future. It is exciting seeing the Liberty movement begin to take over :)

I really want to thank those who supported me

Tonight was amazing. When I arrived, there was a pretty wild party going on outside the banquet room. I made my way through the crowd, went up to the top floor, and presented my badge and ticket. I was given a drink ticket, and told to get my picture taken with Chuck DeVore (The CA politican that moved CA jobs to TX and became a TX politician). So I had my picture taken with DeVore and an assembly man, whose name I forget. I lost my drink ticket, but didn't really care, and went down to "The Banquet".

I was seated next to an Angelican Reverand, who is a delegate, and has been for decades (told me about DeVore), and a pretty delegate, who owns a solar power company in Yolo County Very nice people. As you know, I'm fasting, so I paid attention to the speaches; However, I did taste, and to be honest, was glad that I was fasting and not starving.. way too much oil for the holding in a banquest.. the menu:

Crab cake appetizer on wilted greens with lemon coulie
Goat cheese timble with tomato wedges and boston Bib lettuce dressed with Italian dressing
Baked salmon in port reduction topped with shaved fennel and served with buttered brussle sprouts and roasted red potato.
mini panini with butter
coconut tart with raspberry sauce

So the main speaker is this guy selling a book..www.howmoneyworks.com, which shows how money and people are flowing state county, probably international but we didn't get there. While he was explaining how this flow chart is based on tax flows, and I'm thinking, this is just another Keynesian dog and pony shows, I'm also thinking, "How does this apply to my county? We grow pot legally..." So I got to ask the last question. I asked him to pull my county up on the map so everyone could see my county, and then I said, "Your map does not work in my county because we have a legal industry that is not being taxed, it brings people into the county.." people in the audience were gasping where I was going.. and the lady from another table could not believe I brought this up, but I did.

I made a pitch for the CAGOP to start talking about the cannabis industry for CA. People were so excited by what I had said, that I started meeting all kinds of people. I did not leave the banguet until 10PM, and as some of you know, the parties are going on, so I went to a couple.

The mariachi band was AWESOME. I went to the state treasurer's party, and met him, and had a good conversation. And then I went to the Lincoln Club party, where people were introducing themselves and wanted to talk about what I said at dinner. I believe I have made my mark.

Didn't take me long, eh? LOL Those of you who know me.. I'm blown away by what happened. I'm going to be pulling together a group to write an inniative to legally grow ALL cannabis in CA. Who wants to help me? Here we go.

;D

I really hate to say this but,

I told you so. (((((Granger))))), you are where God intended you to be doing what needs to be done, one step at a time. Good on you!!!!!

Did you get any insight from the state treasurer as to how to get the former treasurer of your committee to release the financial records to you?

(((((((((((((Nonna)))))))))))

The former Treasurer, as long as they have the books, are responsible for the books and the filing, and the fines.. I should get the books at the next meeting, and that is not good enough, I need more than the books, so what I will be proposing at the next meeting is that the treasurer is accountable for all fines and not the committee. That should do it, and I should get that vote passed, even if she passes me the books.. we still have things to do and while she may want to avoid me and not care is that messes things up thinking this new group can pay the fines SHE is incuring, she is wrong.

I have to say, at this point, I do feel like I'm supposed to be here and God is with me. My hotel neightbors were up into the wee hours partying, and some are half my age, drinking way to much, and it's funny.. they like the parties and all, but the rest is so frigging boring, it's hard for them.. So I've been thinking maybe what I could do on DP is have clases on Roberts Rules of Order, or something that empowers and inspires folks.

Yeah, (((((((Nonna))))))) I broke the ice in a BIG way last night.. I set the CA GOP free to talk about cannabis, and they are so happy.. amazing. Truely Amazing (the only one not really ahppy was Chuck DeVore, but I figure it's because he's in TX now) LOL.

Way to go (((((Granger)))))

Love the idea about Roberts Rules of Order. One of my sons only learned that on his own, in high school, preparing for a Model UN conference. Perhaps there could be a campaign to get Social Studies teachers to start covering this.

I am *not* on a fast. Your menu made me hungry! More importantly, why am I not surprised that you're making a name for yourself there. :) Keep up the good work!

(((((((((mdefarge)))))))))) give me your address

I'll have dinner shipped to you over night from the CA state capital!

What you want to bet it's chicken? Chocolate dessert.. rice.. I'm guessing green beans, mushrooms.. water chessnut.. just guessing, we'll see. THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT!

Lol! Yep, you made your mark!

They're gonna remember you, Granger! You brought in a breath of fresh air and opened the door for a new topic to discuss seriously.

For a couple of minutes, I thought I was Elvis Prestly, because they were actually grabbing me, they were so darn excited someone brought this up. And goodness knows how long it's been since someone from Mendocino joined the Golden Circle.. probably a long time.. Mendocino, Mendocino.. Oh how I LOVE Mendocino.. (Mendo is known as one of the most liberal bastions of the Pacific and here they are going.. I LOVE Mendocino. And what was also funny is how many came up to tell me about the great stuff we grow in Mendocino). LOL

Hi ((((Ralph))))! Are you there in Sacramento with

The Granger, too?

Nope

In Austin, TX. I just know Granger made a big impact with the California GOP. She honestly brought up what others may have been thinking about, but were too afraid to mention.

ralph Hornsby

Beautiful.

Pre-Dinner Friday update

The treasurer meeting was a slide show, and we are promised it will be emailed to us. The presentation went very quickly, and during the three hour period, it appears that's going to be a lot to print out. I wrote some thingss down to remember.. and I have a big job in front of me, just because of the folings with the fed and the state and the county.. and so on..

I saw a few LIBERTY people I know, and it's pretty upbeat. It's almost as if, the old GOP is accepting us because things are so far crazy with precidents and government controls, it's enough to drive anyone crazy.. well, I see what happens at dinner.

I decided to go for the "Golden Circle", this is a two year, two convention committment that gets me inside, dinners photos.. the inner circle, and so now, I'm dressed.. the reception has started and I have to walk a few blocks to get there.

Remember I'm fasting.. so I don't want to go too early, also there are events afterwards.. in the capitol room, Mike Osborn the new state GOP treasurer is hosting an event I plan to go to. Being an elected delegate and committee person I am invited to a reception by the Lincoln Club of Orange County, The incoming president is hosting a party in the capitol view room, and all this goes on until midnight. Though I might turn into a pumpkin before midnight, because I have another treasurer's meeting at 8AM in the morning.

I appreciate the support.. let's see what's going on in The Golden Circle... LOL

(( Granger - Here are my words of wisdom ))

In order to forget about pizza, you have to think about wings :-)

Wow, that schedule below looks like fun! Will you be able to do any video or take picures? If you CAN [pun] and while you are at it, take a picture of your manicure and post it here.. I am sure that others beside me would love to see :-)

Good luck, and most all, have fun!!

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Wings!

Srsly, I did not even like wings until I moved out to CA and went to a great many Giants games. Dear God...those wings are to die for... with Franks Hot Sauce... I am craving that bad right now because of your comment lol

Isaiah 2:4
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

Guess what

French manicures are in. I'm not kidding. I look like I'm an insider. Wings huh (((((((((PAF)))))))))) ranch or blue cheese?

Wings sound good but....

How about a real thick medium rare Ruth's Chris filet with grilled portabellos and onions. Served with a salad of arugula, spring greens, heirloom tomatoes, red onion, and topped with toasted goat cheese and a red wine vinaigrette. Oh, and a side of homemade al dente fettuccine with alfredo sauce consisting of fresh butter, thick cream, Parmesana Regiana, and fresh parsley. Oh...and, of course, and appetizer of oysters Rockerfeller.

No, seriously. Do take photos. Get one with you towering over Rove. I would love to see your nails as well!

I am sorry for thinking you were "lil'". You looked so tiny standing next to that great big tree in your old photo.

Enjoy!!

((((((((((((dducky)))))))))))

I've been meeting people

And being quite open about "how the GOP lost it's way".. and they don't disagree. It's as if people know it's so corrupted, want to go back and not sure who will lead them.. it appears the top dogs are being put into place.. but the underdogs have the attention of the people there.

Will report more later, and THANK YOU for the support. Now I'm learning how to file this stuff.. so it's a great exercize.

I'm so glad....

You brought up the ganja industry...Ending the war on drugs is what brought me to Ron Paul...As my friends rot in jail for 10+ yrs for weed, I can only rest on the idea that there are people out there fighting to change the minds and laws of these tyrannical governing bodies...Man (woman), I like you soo much more the more I learn about you...Have a good day!

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!

At least in CA

I feel like I broke virgin territory. Had a few people come up to me today.. and I heard that a Granger who I know is there, and he's also in NorCal, and so I may have found a friend, because Grange has a lobbiest.. and well.. I'm going to hope to run into him tonight or tomorrow..

That dude Granger...

I gotta meet him..."Wow you look so feminine"...LOL...I can hear it now...There is no way a woman could be so strong...Except of course for my mom, wife, sister, daughter...I will say this...You debate like Mike Tyson fights/fought...Maybe that's the misconception...Fuck Rove...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!
