TBF Congratulates Dale Glading!


Ten Buck Fridays congratulates Dale Glading on his victory in this week's TBF poll.

Here's a little background information on Mr. Glading:

Dale Glading, 50, is the Founder and Executive Director of The Saints Prison Ministry. Headquartered in Moorestown, New Jersey, "The Saints" is the largest athletic prison ministry in the country with branch offices in Charlotte, NC, and Colorado Springs, CO...

A lifetime resident of South Jersey, Dale earned a Bachelor of Science degree with summa cum laude honors in Community Recreation from Temple University in 1981. He served as Recreation Director at the Wiley Christian Retirement Community for 10 years before entering full-time ministry with The Saints in 1994. During his years at Wiley, Dale developed a deep empathy for seniors and an understanding of the issues that concern them most...

Dale Glading on the issues (excerpts):

It is time that the career politicians in Washington stopped trying to buy votes with taxpayers' money and learned to live within their means instead. That is why I support Rep. Mike Pence's proposed Balanced Budget Amendment that limits government spending to 20% of the GDP. I have also endorsed Rep. Todd Tiahrt's bill to place a moratorium on all federal earmarks...

When I think about education, I consider two very important factors. The first is that our children are our most precious treasures as well as the greatest “natural resource” that America has. Second, competition breeds excellence in every area of life, including education.

That’s why I strongly support the idea of school choice. Failing schools shouldn’t be rewarded with a locked-in clientele, and children suffering in underperforming schools shouldn’t be relegated to receiving a substandard education simply because of where they live...

...how about lowering the corporate tax rate which is currently the second highest in the world? That would make American companies more competitive internationally and provide business owners with the capital they need to expand and hire more workers.

And while we're at it, how about lowering the income tax rates for ALL Americans so we have more disposable income to better care for our families and better fuel the economy. The bottom line is that we all work hard for our money and as such, we should all be able to keep more of it...

School choice would give him my vote. That is a passion of mine. I have begun to realize that this is an issue that the tea party should be rallying behind. Especially since there are people on both sides of the aisle see the importance of this issue right now and it is a spending issue that could seriously help reduce our spending.

Congrats to Dale. I do have some concern regarding the money bomb. This site and one or two others seem to be the only ones that are up to date as far as the polls and the winners announcements. Some sites do not even have the latest poll up. It looks like some sites nominated a candidate of their own and once that poll ended so did their involvement. It is also very difficult to find, even on this site, if you click the TenBuck Fridays link, you get sent to the poll from Sept 19.I don't see how viewers of the 80 or sites are going to know that Glading won.

I hope you can look through the other sites and see what I mean and contact them to "fix" the situation.

I think TBF is a great idea. I wish I had discovered it sooner.

Side note, a few bloggers are getting out the word on the Progressive States Network. I've got a post up on them and links to others. You might be interested in what's going on at the state level with these guys.
Be sure to check out the PSN letter to Obama on Obamacare and the numerous State legislators who signed it.

Keep up the good work!
