Transportation in the 21st Century Event

Reading Time: 1

You can’t get there from here.

The way people get from here to there–and how they pay for the privilege–is about to change. We want you to have a say in the future of transportation.

To help, Heritage Action for America is teaming up with St. Louis Tea Party Coalition to put on a Transportation Empowerment night on Saturday, July 25, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.

Speakers Include:

  • State Rep. Paul Curtman
  • Ryan Johnson, President, Missouri Alliance for Freedom
  • Ben Evans, Heritage Action for America

Learn about initiatives like the Transportation Empowerment Act that would keep federal gas taxes in the states where they’re paid.

Refreshments from McArthur’s Bakery provided by Heritage Action.

The Week: March 17, 2014

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here’s a roundup of what to look for in the coming week.

St. Louis

Monday, 12:30 p.m.: The Ancient Order of Hibernians’ Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dogtown.  Get there early. Give yourself time to park and walk. Dress warmly.

Wednesday, 5:00 p.m.: Protest of St. Louis Archdiocese for its promotion of City-County Merger. Location is Lindell and Grand.

Wednesday, 7:00 p.m.: The activist who helped expose scandal, waste, and corruption at Rockwood School District is running for the Rockwood School Board. Eileen Tyrrell will speak a the Meramec Republican Township meeting at the Eureka Fire Station 1,  4849 Highway 109.  Eileen previously founded Rockwood School District Stakeholders to do what the board was supposed to do–protect tax payers.


All Week: Missouri General Assembly takes its Spring Break, so the march to legitimize red light cameras slow down.


All Week: US Congress on its Spring Break. I used to say “the republic is safe” when Congress is on break. With Obama running his own private legislature, though, the real Congress is always on break and the republic always in peril.

Here’s A Great Way To Connect to America’s Founding: 1776

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Get into the spirit of ‘76 with a great live musical

You probably didn’t know that I was a theatre guy in high school and college. In fact, I was a theatre 1776-postermajor for a couple of years. I think the right’s neglect of the arts is one of our biggest failings. The arts reach people at an emotional level. Intellectual arguments cannot change emotional attachments.

So here’s a chance to rev up your American patriotic spirits while connecting with the arts. It’s 1776, the musical, and a great St. Louis teacher and leader, Jim Leibrecht, is part of the show.  Here’s his summary of this play:


I just wanted to let you know that the production of 1776 opens at Insight Theatre a week from Wednesday, June 26.  It runs for 10 of the next 12 days, dark on July 1 and 4.  Curtain is at 8:00, 2:00 on Sunday’s.  Theatre is on the campus of Nerinx Hall High School.


I think you all know that I am now one to “enthuse” without justification.  Well, I am about to “ENTHUSE” enthusiastically.

I have to tell you that this is going to be an extraordinary production.  The cast of 20+ is wonderfully talented as actors and as vocalists, and experienced and professional all.  From the leads through the delegates to the entire company, the vocal quality is “awesome”.  Voices are very rich and full, and the characters created are engrossing.  (I portray Scottish delegate of Delaware, Thomas McKean, he of the robust and florid personality and voice).  This is definitely one of the most exhilarating casts I have ever had the privilege and joy of being part of.  Each one’s abilities help one to enrich and flesh out one’s own performance, which means it is a total company and ensemble presentation—doesn’t get any better than that.   But all that is so much more wonderful because the libretto and music of the show are just great.  The book is great writing; the music fully reflective of the characters, the situation.  It is just a wonderful musical.  AND the miraculous birth of our Declaration and birth is both confounding and inspiring.  The show makes one appreciate what July 4 is really about all the more.

I invite you to come; I encourage you to come.  You will find the production of a level of expertise to match any other you may enjoy in St. Louis this summer.  You will be very glad you took the time and effort to share this theatrical magic with the cast and the production.

You may check on ticket availability, and purchase tickets at the Insight Theatre website.  Just Google it.  The tickets are $25 and $30, depending on reserved seat location.  I guarantee you will get much MORE than your money’s worth.  There is a fee charge for purchase online.

I will make at least one of the performances. If you see the show, please review it in the comments of this blog post.
