Congratulations on the Reluctant Baby Steps

Now that the Michigan Chamber of Commerce has bailed on Snyder and Calley two days ago, it becomes painfully obvious that somebody is sniffing at 2018 in the air.

Hinky_BillAttorney General Bill Schuette said Wednesday he opposes the Proposal 1 sales tax increase on the May 5 ballot, making him the latest Republican politician to buck Gov. Rick Snyder’s plan to raise $1.2 billion in new road funding.

Schuette told The Detroit News that the proposal’s $700 million in added taxes and spending on schools, municipalities and a tax break for low-income families are a bad policy prescription for fixing the state’s roads.

“On a policy basis, Prop 1 has a lot of potholes,” Schuette said in an interview. “There’s too much under the Christmas tree that goes beyond roads.”

Schuette would not say whether he would have supported a sales tax increase that dedicated new money only to roads and bridges.


Cutesy catchphrase that impresses some staffers, which is all fine and dandy, however, when is AG Schuette going to start probing MDOT with the department he created? Pick a spot. Any spot.

Interesting too is how Ruth Johnson now keeps her yap shut about the registration fee hike and loss of deduction within Proposal 2015-1, huh?

Norm Shinkle – Joe Biden’s silence is enabling the Democrats’ alternate reality on riots

Joe Biden's silence is enabling the Democrats’ alternate reality on riots

We got a glimpse into the warped worldview of the far left  when a sitting Member of the U.S. Congress asked Attorney General Bill Barr why federal agents did not tear gas peaceful protesters who opposed Governor Whitmer’s coronavirus lockdown here in Michigan.

Many Democrats seem to be living in an alternate universe in which there are no masked and armed lunatics tearing down statues, attacking police officers and motorists, setting fire to cars, businesses, churches, police stations, and federal courthouses — and yes, shooting and killing people.

In this fabricated reality, the streets of Portland have not been illegally occupied by violent would-be revolutionaries every night for the past two months and counting. In this fantasy world, the utopian experiment that the Democrat mayor of Seattle dubbed a new “summer of love” did not end in utter disaster, with armed terrorists started shooting black teenagers within the police-free “paradise.”
