The Nominating Convention will take place
in Kansas City, KS, October 5-9, 2011.
More than one million people are expected
to attend, including several of the Presidential hopefuls.
Yours Truly has been selected to serve as
emcee.
The purpose of the convention is not to
act as a third party challenge but instead,
to vet U.S. Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates so that the two major
parties understand who it is that the TEA
Party nation supports.
As political pollster and author of the book,
“Mad As Hell: How the TEA Party Movement Is Fundamentally Remaking Our Two
Party System”, Scott Rasmussen recently
told me on the radio show, “I can’t imagine
any republican party Presidential candidate
winning his party’s nomination without the
support of the TEA party movement.”
The process will involve a 50-state “grassroots” Tea Party “straw poll”; at the same
time provide each state’s Tea Party and
9.12 groups a caucus area to rally and discuss their local, state, and national candidates and any legislation or issues important to their independent groups.
In selecting Yours Truly as an emcee the
organizers said, “We view Rick Amato as
a rising star of the conservative movement,
connecting leaders around the country to
the patriots in the Tea Party and military.
From taking up the cause of wrongly accused soldiers to pressing Washington
officials to answer tough questions about
spending and government, Rick is leading
the charge to reform America. He is also
helping a whole new generation of conservatives adapt the principles of Ronald
Reagan to the 21st century.”
Guest Speaker: Rick Amato
Rick will be speaking to us about The Tea
Party movement and their role in the upcoming Presidential election of 2011.

Happy Spring Everyone
Toni M. Ringlein, PSRWF President
I cannot believe that it is March 2011
already!! The old saying “time flies when
you are having fun” must be true because
time is flying by and I am having fun! I am
having fun with many new things in my
life: a new granddaughter, a new job and,
of course, being the new 2011 President
of the Palm Springs Republican Women Federated. Fun as
President of a volunteer club, you ask? Well, yes, despite
the challenge of engaging you, our members, to help with
the many hurdles facing our community and country, I am
having fun!
I am having fun…
• Introducing you to our first newsletter of 2011! As you can
tell, our new member and graphic designer for our newsletter, Elaine Finch, knows what she is doing. I am so happy she
agreed to volunteer her time to the cause so you can receive
important club information. This is fun!
• Learning more about what it means to be a Conservative.
As a relative newbie to the political arena, I have been learning what it really means to be a Republican and coming to
truly understand my own values and beliefs. Being a member
of this club helps me grow and become a more confident
person standing strong in my principles. This is fun!!
• At our luncheons and happy hours! Meeting more likeminded citizens to talk with and be around is great! The liberals drive me crazy! You just can’t talk to them as they make
NO SENSE! The Happy hour, with its success, is bringing
more community members to our events and converting
them into members of our club. This is fun!
• Working with the fabulous women on the Board of Directors and committees to guide and direct our club to success.
This is fun!
• Knowing that I am making a difference in the lives of my
neighbors, my friends and my family. This is the most fun of all!
Knowing that what I do today will help my 5 beautiful grandchildren in their future. This is fun AND TRULY REWARDING!
So yes, I am having fun as the new President of our club. Are
you seeking a little more fun in your life? Please join me and
our other active members for all the fun we DO have!
With the upcoming council election this year, the fight to
stop the proposed Detention Center from coming into our
2 | psrwf.org
backyard, the 2012 Presidential election and so much more,
we need your help more than ever. This is a tough fight but
I am confident it is one we will win…TOGETHER! Slow and
steady, the truth is being exposed and as a result, we will
prevail in preventing our country from;
•
•
•
•
•
•
Becoming socialist or worse.
Ruled under Sharia law.
Going completely broke.
Being invaded by illegal immigrants who take but do not give.
Continuing to indoctrinate our children with false truths and progressive left values.
Losing its Constitutional greatness!
The madness must stop and it is up to us, American Citizens,
to stop it!! We are on our way…help keep up the momentum.
Become a volunteer today! Here is a list of positions that
need to be filled:

Freedom is never more than one generation away
from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in
the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and
handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will
spend our sunset years telling our children and our
children’s children what it was once like in the United
States where men were free.
Ronald Reagan 40th president of US (1911-2004)

Hello to all of our Members
Rita Foell, Recording and Corresponding Secretaries
Like most organizations we are putting out a call for more help and a bit of patience!
It seems that everyone is busy...when jobs are transferred from Board to Board it takes a little
time to settle into those duties.
There are comments about not receiving emails, not receiving regular mail for those without email
addresses, difficulty in opening emails and believe me we are working to correct these things. We
are short of helpers as you have seen Toni has issued another call for people to take offices in order
to share the load, please step up and help us to help all of you.
A few things you can do to help:
If you have an email address and are not receiving our emails please check to be sure we are on
your list for receiving emails… www.psrwf.org …because we are getting a lot of returned mail from
members. If you have just joined we are getting new members email addresses added to our list.
If you will help me with the phone tree by making 10 - 15 calls per month, sending notices to members who don’t have email addresses, plus other duties it would be wonderful!
At the moment I am doing double duty as Recording Secretary and Corresponding Secretary, if
you can take one of them off my hands that would be a big help.
I ask for your patience and want very much to get to know all of you!
Respectfully Submitted,
Rita Foell,

have ballots so that the hats can be voted on. A prize will be awarded for the best hat. Remember, the best hat could be the
prettiest, or the funniest or the goofy-est; it’s all a matter of personal taste. Our speaker for the month is Ellen Swensen.

Cocktail Party
Spring Purse Exchange. Did you attend the last Purse Exchange luncheon? I heard it was a blast
and just about everyone left quite pleased. Bring a gently worn purse that you don’t mind giving up and you will get to take
home a new (to you) purse! Our speaker for this month is Priscilla Porter. Currently on the board of directors of the
“Coachella Valley History Museum, the Palm Desert campus of Cal State San Bernardino and the Lincoln Club, this Republican
woman is truly the voice of reason. She writes for Harcourt School Publishing Company, social studies text books children in
elementary school; kindergarten through grade 6. I hear that all of the elementary schools in the Coachella valley are using her text
books. I don’t know about you, but I breathed a big sigh of relief knowing that a conservative has contributed to the curriculum
in elementary school; something of a rarity today. Let’s give Priscilla a warm welcome. This is the last luncheon of the season.
If you have any ideas for future guest speakers, please contact Sue Ferguson at [email protected] Thank you.
Luncheons every third Thursday of the month.
11:00 a.m. - 1 p.m.

great happy hour prices on bar drinks

Americanism
Submitted by Bonnie Cloer, Americanism
Presently there seems to be a striving
for more civility in conversation, news
broadcasts, and writings. George
Washington’s Rules of Civility & Decent
Behaviour in Company and Conversation is an interesting little book much
of which can be applied to today. I
have chosen a select few from the
book. Since these were written so many years ago, some
do not apply, but do make for very interesting reading. The
spelling is original from the book, so includes UK spelling.
The introduction to the book states “George Washington, the
father of our country, exhibited notable manners throughout
his life. Diligence in social matters was common practice in
decent society the world over, during his lifetime. At the age
of 14, George Washington wrote down 110 rules under the
title “Rules of Civility & Descent Behaviour in Company and
Conversation.” These rules were drawn from an English
translation of a French book of maxims and were intended
to polish manners, keep alive the best affections of the heart,
impress the obligation of moral virtues, teach how to treat
others in social relations, and above all, inculcate the practice
of a perfect self-control.”
Some of the rules follow here.
1st
Every action done in company ought to be with some sign of respect to those that are present.
5th If you cough, sneeze, sigh, or yawn, do it not loud by privately; and speak not in your yawning, but put your handkerchief or hand before your face and turn aside.
10th When you sit down, keep your feet firm and even, without putting one on the other or crossing them.
15th Keep your nails clean and short, also your hands and teeth clean, yet without showing any great concern for them.
24th Do not laugh too much or too loud in public.
56th Associate yourself with men of good quality, if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.
65th Speak not injurious words, neither in jest or earnest; scoff at none although they give occasion.
82nd Undertake not what you cannot perform, but be careful to keep your promise.
110th Labour to keep alive in your breast than little celestial fire called conscience.
