Call to Action: H.R. 2453: Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Act

Sometimes it’s the little things that can make a big difference. Sometimes it’s a little thing that gives indication that your voice is actually considered.

It is to this end that the Bryan/College Station Tea Party is requesting that you call our TX 17 Representative, Bill Flores in regards to a silly bill staged for a House Floor Vote next week.    Washington: Phone: (202) 225-6105   Bryan: Phone: (979) 703-4037  

  • H.R. 2453: Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Act. This bill would require the Secretary of the Treasury to mint gold and silver coins in commemoration of Samuel Clemens, better known to the world as Mark Twain.
  • The prices of the coins would include surcharges of $35 per gold coin and $10 per silver coin distributable to four beneficiaries:
    • the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, Connecticut
    • the Mark Twain Project at the Bancroft Library of the University of California
    • the Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College in New York
    • the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum in Hannibal, Missouri

We appreciate that these “feel good” legislative measures are an opportunity to show House unity and harmony. However, the beneficiaries of the public’s largesse is always the same old liberal groups that “edit” history to reflect their own big government interest. In fact, Mr. Twain, (Samuel Clemens) in reality would most certain apply his acerbic wit to such foolishness at the public’s expense.

“…one of the first achievements of the legislature was to institute a ten-thousand-dollar agricultural fair to show off forty dollars’ worth of pumpkins in — however, the Territorial legislature was usually spoken of as the “asylum”.”
– Roughing It, Mark Twain

We the People are extremely annoyed that our federal government is not only operating without a budget, but actually has the temerity to off-handedly tell us that not counting Social Security/Welfare/Entitlement Spending….we have a $16 Trillion debt!

We realize that H.R. 2453: Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Act is so much easier to attend to than say filing impeachment documents in regards to those involved in establishing a Diplomatic Staff in Benghazi, Libya as if it were uptown Toronto which ended in tragedy and national dishonor or a Justice Department debacle on our own border that is steadily racking up a death count of U.S. and Mexican citizens with Fast & Furious.

Or trying to establish how a non-natural born citizen was certified by every one of the “57” Secretaries of State as candidate for President of the United States, not once, but TWICE!!

However, sometimes, it is those little things that just point out the absurdity of what our supposedly republican representative government considers important that provides men of courage a moment to JUST SAY NO!.

Therefore, the B/CS Tea Party is asking every one to make a point of calling Rep. Flores and letting him know that HR 2453: The Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Act is a great opportunity to express his, and therefore OUR absolute contempt for such superfluous measures that only mock the reality constitutional conservatives see so clearly.

Rep. Flores, hold your clinched fist in the air and say: “Fight the power!” and just vote “NO!”  Mark Twain, and your constitutional conservative constituents will applaude you!
