Recently, there have been some comments posted on blogs and reported in the Asbury Park Press regarding the Bayshore Tea Party Group and the “Republicans For Conservative Leadership” slate that is running in the June Primary.
While many who read this response to those comments already know FULL WELL the reasons for the actions of the Bayshore Tea Party Group and the Candidates themselves, we will, never the less, post our comments.
There were several citizens that are aligned with the Tea Party platform that had expressed an interest, or even a NEED, to run for office. Once this interest was expressed to the Bayshore Tea Party group, and other Tea Party Groups, it was decided that a full slate would be the right thing to do. Again, most of you reading this know that this was one of those actions that would be considered… necessary.
The Bayshore Tea Party Group supports the candidates of Republicans for Conservative Leadership:
Leigh-Ann Bellew for State Senate
Tueday, June 12, 2012—A few months ago, we limited comments on articles to registered members of the Bayshore Tea Party Group. This was not a happy decision, but the effort required to police against spambots threatened to become unbearable.
After reviewing the CAPTCHA service available through our hosting service, we have decided to enable CAPTHCAs and turn commenting back on for everybody. The downside is that our hosting service will not allow registered users to bypass the CAPTCHA. The BTPG leadership agreed that this is an acceptable price, especially since each successful entry benefits literary preservation. (See how the reCAPTCHA service works.)
In the past we were honored to receive a well-defended dissenting view from a distinguished writer and producer in the comments on a blog article. Shutting off public comments cut of the possibility of future visits of this kind. We're very pleased to reopen the gate, even with the hoop that we must force our visitors to go through.
Comment spaces are available on the "permalink" pages such as the Blog, the Warehouse, and the Roundup. Links from article titles on other pages will bring you (directly or indirectly) to the permanent copy of the article.
Our policy of deleting comments that are libelous, malicious, threatening, or profane remains. (Find it here.) If you find such a comment, please notify us at the contact link in the page footer. We will adjust our policies as circumstances, and our users' conduct, demand and permit.

Neither is the New York Times known as a friend to the patriot and military but ....
The UN does not use black helicopters. It does not need them. All it needs is the power to write your zoning laws. And Washington, Trenton, and dozens of other state governments are turning that power over to them through an unholy alliance of radical environmentalists, America-haters, universities, and stooges. And the worst of the stooges are the people you elected to office. More ...
Can You Afford
Coffee and a Doughnut
Once a Week?
Coffee and a doughnut will run you about $3.50 these days. Once a week, it adds up to about $16/month when you consider that most months have more than 28 days.
But just $12/month makes you a Sustaining Member of the Bayshore Tea Party Group. With a year's dues, you get your own login on this web site. But more than that, you know you are supporting the most effective Tea Party in New Jersey. Just a glance through our archives will show you the candidates who have come before us to speak; a look at our calendar will show you more who are scheduled to come.
Yes, other Tea Parties are involved with us, too. We're glad to have them and we'll work with them to make us all stronger. But it's right here in our office that so much comes together, and your support makes that possible. Barbara and Bob can get their own coffee and doughnuts, but we can't get your support unless you give it to us.
Our country faces deep crises at home and abroad, and the root of them all is this: we have given over the reins of government to people who want to remake our country, to do away with such messy things as liberty, individual rights and responsibility. We've let them go a long way, but now it's time to take back the reins and clean up the mess they've made of our Country and our lives. Where there's life, there's hope, but we must seize it while we can. Please stand with us to face together the most important election year of our lifetimes—2012.
