Skip to comments.Beat Lamar! : Help Me Vet Joe Carr
Posted on 09/27/2013 4:33:29 AM PDT by don-o
Joe Carr has announced his candidacy for the Senate. He is running to defeat Lamar! Alexander in the Republican primary. Saturday is the 5th of 5 statewide Tea Party rallies. When the rallies were planned we had two candidates. One has dropped out. (Tennessee is a winner take all state, so this is a good thing.)
I plan to play the role of an msm type with my questions.
I am soliciting FReeper input. The questions can be gotcha types or legitimate ones (such as the rape exception that Aiken so badly handled.)
I will post a report.
Let me know if you wish to be added to the beatlamar! ping list.
Good luck in Tennessee!
Two thoughts...can you tape it and then post the video? If you're not adept at that ( and neither am I..get a teenager to come with you..pay him a few bucks if necessary.
And if he objects to your recording it, well then..there's the "hook" for your story. Also, do some interviews with others who are there..an post the comments..
BTW..are you doing a live Senate thread this morning..? I'm heading out now..should be back about 10, otherwise I'd do it..
Good luck and ground work can make this happen. Plan and process is in place to knock on 375,000 doors.
I am in Franklin, TN and I am on board to defeat Lamar. He needs to hear from us today. NO on cloture. Stop this insanity called Obamacare NOW.
I can ask the organizer about recording. I can do an audio - I have no tripod for my small memory camera. I have not seen vids of the other four rallies - nor have I looked for them.
Good suggestion on getting input from others attending.
Senate Live thread: If no one else puts one up - I will.
Please tell him to not say something stupid about rape like Mourdock and Akin did. That is my big worry. Lamar must go!
Why? I am going to do some digging on his voting record to see if there is anything questionable. Won't msm'ers be doing exactly that?
This is exactly my intent. But, I want to blindside him and see how he handles himself. Giving "helpful hints" or advice is not my purpose.
I am in Barlett. Knock on our doors, I will believe when I see it.
Please add me to the list. My husband and I are NOT voting for Lamar this time.
Time for sniping has ended and activism begins. By printing up FR postings that apply to certain groups and leafleting their parking lots they use to meet for any reason.
Obamacare Ruling: Religious Employers MUST Provide Birth Control Coverage
Obama: If Catholics (and Protestants) Have Their Schools ... That Encourages Division
Common Core: A Threat To Catholic Education
WHAT DID YOU EXPECT ?
This address to the Irish accompanied by his usual entourage of hundreds made during his stay in europe for the June 2013 Summit 8 conference might make it to the national scene but our media will sit on it.
The democrat party after taking complete control of everything instument of govermnet the Presidentcy, House and Senate in 2008. Lost the House in 2010 thanks to the opposition by loosely organized groups known as the tea party later characterized by members of the administration as “terrorists”. But demonstrated it was completely taken over by socialists when the word and reference to GOD was removed at their 2012 national convention. A fact that went un-noticed, un-touched, un-mentioned, and un-used by the RINOS and GOPES (GOP elite snobs) during that presidential 2012 election and now who are still running todays Republican party.
Even after reconsideration the decision was derided by the majority because it was re-installed over a majority voice vote supporting the removal.
If this were a political party in a parlimentary system it would be hyphenated and would (and should despite the difference) be refered to as the Demo-Com party. While the RINOS and GOPES cant even call them socialist..But at least they claim a belief and many support the sanctity of life and Christian/Catholic schools if they don’t or lie,but at least you can give the RINOS and GOPES the boot..
But any Catholic or Christian claiming to belong to the “demo-com” party is a hyprocrite and should be confronted, isolated, and treated with disgust and distain. Its time to understand and face the facts that everything that has been changed since that time including discarding the traditional concept of what democrats were. They have come out of the closet and government is in your face, your house,your religion,and your pocketbook....

Its time to get government out of Our faces
Our religions and and Our pocketbooks
VOTE REPUBLICAN ON
WHO WILL FIGHT FOR US NOT THEMSELVES
TP candidates need to be coached to have their red flags go up when the gotcha questions come out. Their answer should always be the same, “This is a highly personal issue, and my personal views on it are not what is important. I am being sent to Washington to represent the wishes of the people of my district and that is what I will do. I have nothing further to say on this subject.”
Even better if you can rustle up a red flannel shirt to wear tomorrow..LOL
That is a really great idea!
Ralph Bristol , Nashville's #1 radio talk show host, just declared it's officially "Davy Crockett Day" in Nashville on 99.7 WWTN FM !
1. Has he actually read the Declaration of Independence/the Constitution?
2. Has he actually read the Federalist Papers?
3. Does he know how the Federal Reserve works?
4. What does he think of the anchor baby interpretation of 14A?
Thanks. He could answer Yes. I lack enough knowledge to form a specific and cogent simple question. Can you suggest one.
4. What does he think of the anchor baby interpretation of 14A?
Again can you help me on specificity on what the interpretation is? And what exactly is 14A?
When the voters of Tennessee retire Lamar!, I wonder if his retirement home will be in Maryville or Washington. I can just imagine him walking the highways and byways of Blount County in his red flannel shirt.
4. 14A is 14th Amendment, the anti slavery amendment. It is the false interpretation of 14A that gives us anchor baby 'citizenship'.
Here is a question. The “full faith and credit in the acts of other states” makes my driver’s license and marriage license valid in all states and towns in the United States and territories.
Why does it not work that way for a pistol permit?
Red flannel shirt and that stupid tinny piano.
Good question - but, it’s a softball for a conservative in Tenn. I’m looking for more hostile, even trick questions like he will get from the msm.
The Republican politicians completely their red headed step children in the Western part of the state.
Forget my post. Lack of 02 problem this morning.
bump for help since the Mods feel an actual Activism effort unworthy of Breaking News status despite the fact that we have many dead threads in the sidebar.
Activism threads can be in the Chapters/Activism sidebar, which is where it is now.
It’s actually more prominent than being in breaking news, as the Activism sidebar has less entries that will cause a thread to move down the list.
If all threads like this were to be put in breaking news, there would be less room for breaking news.
Thank you for the response. I do not display the Activism sidebar. That’s on me. But, having received very few responses, I wonder how many FReepers do actually display it.
Please add me to your beatlamar!likearentedmule ping list.
Added. Any suggestions on questions for Joe Carr?
Anyone interested in activism should have it displayed.
It’s very easy to set it up.
On my Mod pages it is listed just under Breaking, then Front Page.
I know the default is different.
What is his definition of amnesty when it comes to immigration reform, and are the current 'path to citizenship' proposals being floated a form of amnesty?
If, based on any number of illegal acts conducted by the current administration, the House voted to impeach the President, would he vote to convict?
What is his stand on the Fair Tax?
Does he believe the 17th amendment should be repealed?
Please add me to the Beat Lamar list.
Something like, “What is your position on abortion following rape or incest?” “Should Memphis have changed the names of parks honoring Confederates or the Confederacy?” Opinion on late term abortion, what are his thoughts on quantitative easing, Should we have attacked Assad? Thoughts on farm/ethanol subsidies.
Definitely. I'm going to frame very aggressively. Something like "Should victims of rape / incest be forced to carry the child to term?"
Should Memphis have changed the names of parks honoring Confederates or the Confederacy?
Ecxellent. Though it is a local matter, there is a lawsuit and may get into the Federal system. Wonder if Lamar! has opined on it?
Opinion on late term abortion, what are his thoughts on quantitative easing, Should we have attacked Assad? Thoughts on farm/ethanol subsidies.
More good. How about: "I assume you supported Bush's use of our military to fight terrorism. Shouldn't you support Obama doing the same thing?"
disco: Are ethanol subsidies still in effect? Thanks for those suggestions. I may only get one question. The rape / incest question MUST be asked.
Oops! Looks like ethanol subsidies expired.
How about some questions on immigration:
1. Where does he stand on “birth-right” citizenship?
2. Chain migration?
3. Work visas to displace American workers?
4. “Refugee and humanitarian” immigration?
5. Is our population so sparse that we need to continue to import masses of immigrants each year?
Can you please add me to the beatlamar ping list. Thanks. It’s time to take Lamar off the taxpayers payroll.
Good ones. Thank you

Corker is trying to take Linda’s place as McCain’s bff.
A man of his personality needs to be heard and seen. I say place him and piano at The Top of the World on a water tower for example. He'd have a view his environmentalist friends he also supports the causes of would simply love. Top Of The World is a mountain top residential in Blount County fer rich folk LOL. On the Foothills Parkway.
