To Serve….

At least the appointed to *manage* the Blue Line own up on camera as to how they think about you, and your wallets. Oh, and for those out there sitting in their lily-white suburbs who *think* this is just typical Detroit corruption, well, a $280,000.00 settlement says you are wrong.

The figure was determined by a three-attorney panel during a case evaluation, and both sides agreed to accept the offer rather than go to trial.

Officials with the Novi Police Department declined to comment, directing questions to their attorney, Tom McGraw.

Yep. Same sh*t – different day.

While The Commerce Committee Is Deliberating

Perhaps we take a moment and reflect on a little history of Michigan and how things happen?

JuleaWardLets talk about Julea Ward.

Who is she?  And why should she be the topic of the day?  Without reading any further, how many of Right Michigan’s regular readers recall her name?   Take your time, but don’t forget to act when you are through here, OK?

In April of 2009, the Blog Prof posted something that was out of the ballpark nuts on the pages of RightMichigan.com.  Not “nuts” because HE was wrong, but rather from being the telltale sign of things to come.  One of our publicly funded Universities threatened to END Miss Ward’s career, unless she submit to a regimen of homophilia.  As the prof’s prop of choice asked then, “What the hell is going on out here!”

Here’s your cue. Now, smile for the cameras!

Are we really getting our money's worth on roads? The real answer just might surprise you.

Hey, did you know that the sky is blue?

Okay, maybe not in your part of Michigan and maybe not at this exact moment, but just go with me on this.

Did you know that if I were to spill coffee on my lap that it would hurt? I mean really, ,really, really hurt…a lot.

Hmmmmm, I wonder if I can get anything for the suffering I’ve endured?

And did you know that Michigan Roads are in terrible shape?

I’m so glad that we have a governor who is just so well-versed in the obvious.

Lipstick On A Pig

ToleranceApathyThe lame duck legislature has nine more days (including today) in which it could seriously harm Michigan.

One of the items which has ZERO business being considered, is the elevation of a dangerous behavior to ‘protected class’ status.  Making every landlord, business owner, or boss, the potential target of people with a (previously diagnosable) mental condition.    Incoming Michigan State Rep Todd Courser, in an email newsletter cautions supporters to NOT let their current Reps off the hook. He writes:

A Lipstick Makeover…

The Effort by the GOP to wrap this Expansion of Elliott Larsen in some weak religious exemption is akin to taking a Cheap Pig and Slapping a Cheap Lipstick Makeover on it; it is still a pig and it still has cheap lipstick on it. This is the granting of protected class status to the LGBT community and in doing so, it kills religious liberty and freedom of speech! Don’t be fooled…and don’t let your rep off the hook for standing SILENT as this rolls through the House. Ask them where their press releases on this issue are…encourage them to stand against this rogue action by the Republican Speaker who has been paid a small fortune and is partnering with the LGBT activists to destroy religious liberty and freedom of speech!

If this expansion to Elliott Larsen passes it will institutionalize discrimination against Christians and other faiths and make freedom of religion and freedom of speech subservient to the wishes of the homosexual lobby.

Even with the pretend religious exemptions being promised by a paid-in-advance speaker of the house, it’s still a raw deal.

Fact of the matter, is that the THREAT of a lawsuit based on such characteristics as personal choice and preference, is an affront to freedom of association and speech.  It hardly matters if one can exempt themselves based on their religious practice or beliefs if the must first stand before a judge and make that exclamation.  It still costs time, and money, and hardship.

And taking into account what it will cost the taxpayers, Rick Snyder doesn’t want to see it on his desk anyhow.
