“The annual outflow of over 3,500 final rules has meant that 81,883 rules have been issued since 1993.”

127 laws were passed in calendar year 2012, whereas 3,708 rules were issued.”

“U.S. households “pay” $14,768 annually in regulatory hidden tax.”

Members of the Jefferson County Pachyderm Club recently attended the CPAC conference held in St. Charles. There were many conservative elected leaders there speaking and holding informational discussions about current conservative issues. If you did not make it plan on attending next year.

I had the pleasure of seeing previews of this new movie to be released in November. I cannot remember seeing a better Christmas movie since It’s a Wonderful Life and it was in black and white. Check local listings for release locally  or visit.

Our new banner was proudly displayed along with our national and state flags. We also distributed Pachyderm literature to many citizens. If you missed the largest annual parade in Jefferson County this year, plan on attending next year the club had a blast.
