Green New Squeal

Jeez, the Democratic Party is going down faster than Kamala did on Willie Brown.

Washington — The U.S. Senate’s vote to advance the ambitious Green New Deal failed as expected Tuesday, with most Democrats voting “present” in protest of what they’ve called a “sham” vote.

Michigan Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, both Democrats, were among 43 senators voting present on the resolution, while 57 [Republicans] voted no.

Neither Stabenow nor Peters have publicly endorsed the Green New Deal but both roundly criticized their Republican counterparts for supposedly failing to take climate change seriously or even acknowledge it’s man-made.

Rest of Michigan’s two midwits drool here

Now, let the comedy ensue…

Thought Carrie Nation was an Abject Failure? Try, Allah Nation

The first question should be, much like any homicide, does current statute prevent anything? If no, then what’s the point of criminalizing another whole new group of people other than to backdoor prohibition?

State Rep. Abdullah Hammoud concedes that his goal is not just to eliminate drunken driving. He wants to keep anybody who has consumed any amount of alcohol from getting behind the wheel.

“Drink, or drive,” said Hammoud, D-Dearborn. “Choose one. It should never be both.”

Hammoud, 29, a non-drinker with a background in public health, introduced a package of bills last week that would lower the threshold for drunken driving to a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.05, from the current 0.08.

Hammoud a non-drinker? Allah-Shazam! Guess what? He’s a non-pork eater too. Shall we criminalize eating bacon? Why not, Abdullah’s Democrat Party buddy, Alexithymia Ocashew-Cortex wants to ban cow farts, and am pretty sure pigs fart too so, let’s not offend any moslems, right? 🤦‍♂️

Nessel: Promises Made

Promises kept.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has reached a settlement in a case challenging state taxpayer funding for faith-based adoption agencies that refuse to place foster children with same-sex couples.

The settlement will require the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to maintain non-discriminatory provisions in foster care and adoption agency contracts and end state contracts with agencies if they discriminate against same-sex couples in state-contracted cases.

Mackinac Island Cuckservative and Democratic Socialist Festival

Prediction: lowest turnout ever.

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican critic of President Donald Trump, is set to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Mackinac Policy Conference and talk about the “current national political climate,” the Detroit Regional Chamber said Thursday.

Oh, the guy that loser Brian Calley endorsed in 2016?

Liars gonna lie, yes? Reckon that’s why Kasich works for Very Fake News.

Other scheduled conference speakers include Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen[nomics] Whitmer; former Florida governor and 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Jeb [Please clap] Bush; Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor Donna Brazile [Crooked Hillary’s BFF]; Stacey Abrams [Tank], the 2018 Democratic candidate for Georgia governor; Detroit Mayor Mike [Demo Disaster] Duggan; and Michigan congressional members.

Am sorely disappointed that they were not able to get Maxine ‘Peach foty fi’ Waters to attend. It would complete their agenda.

Fellow Michiganians, we are doing it all wrong.

Whitmer unveiled her first budget proposal on Tuesday, March 5, and her proposals for a higher gas tax and a significant education funding increase got most of the attention.

But included in the spending plan was $15 million for a Flint reserve fund and $8.1 million in funding for existing programs addressing the Flint water crisis.

What surrounding communities need to do is mismanage their affairs and become totally irresponsible in their decision making as this is the new pathway to financial reward.

Mr. Payne, That’s Just the Most Basic Side of Whitmer’s Fuel Tax Hike

It just warms the cockles of my heart that there is someone out there putting this obnoxious redistribution of our tax dollars into figures so the public is aware. This is what Michiganians are going to immediately feel out of their pocket.

Michiganians drive an average of 14,121 miles per year, according to the Federal Highway Administration. The average vehicle fuel economy for 2017 model-year vehicles was 24.9 miles per gallon, according to Environmental Protection Agency figures released Wednesday.

Do the math, and a 45-cent surcharge would add up to that $255 per year. That’s on top of the average current fuel bill of $1,389, assuming gasoline stays at the current $2.45 per gallon average price around the state.

Are the Envirotard dopes who are government subsidized in the purchase and, charging of driving their glorified golf carts around off the hook?

Gretchenomics: Welcome to the Granholm v2.0 era

Well, that didn’t take long to cast sunlight upon the Progressive Left’s wealth redistribution scheme.

If approved by the Republican-controlled House and Senate, Whitmer’s proposed 45-cent motor fuel tax increase would occur in three separate 15 cent tax hikes on Oct. 1, 2019, April 1, 2020, and Oct. 1, 2020.

The first two tax hikes would increase the tax by 30 cents and bring in an additional $1.26 billion during the 2019-20 fiscal year. But documents submitted by Whitmer as part of her executive budget recommendation on Tuesday indicate that the net increase to transportation funding will be just $764 million in 2019-20 fiscal year.

In other words, $499.2 million — an estimated 40 percent of the $1.26 billion gas tax increase in 2020 — would not go to roads. Instead, it would replace current transportation budget dollars that would be redirected to pay for other state government spending.
