BREAKING – Dave Camp To Bow Out

CampAnd the Michigan Congressional selection just got a little more interesting.

With only three weeks to the filing deadline, Congressman Dave Camp has said he will not seek re-election.  Rollcall reports his announcement:

“Today, I am announcing that I will not seek re-election to the United States House of Representatives,” Camp said in a statement. “This decision was reached after much consideration and discussion with my family.”

We wish him the best of luck in future endeavors.

We also hope that Peter Konetchy is ready to fend off an expected establishment chosen congressional candidate.  Konetchy is currently the only announced candidate for the 4th congressional district in Michigan

Where is the Money From Public Act 95 of 2013 Going?

Serious question when those in Lansing just performed government sanctioned theft of $60 million dollars (includes $10M gamed from .FEDGOV). Why is this going on anywhere?

Be careful how you answer that because it sure as Hell is not giving me a warm and fuzzy feeling that the Progressive Nerd’s non-bailout bailout schemes is spending another $350M in tax dollars.

Rogers To Move On

7 Term Congressman Is Moving On

rogersUS Congressman Mike Rogers is putting away his legislative pen.

Its apparently time to move on the the graveyard of political careers. The land of political punditry; broadcaster Nirvana. Talk Radio. The Detroit News Reports

The seven-term Howell Republican’s announcement comes less than a month before the filing deadline — and is the third major departure for the state’s congressional delegation following the decisions of Rep. John Dingell, D-Dearborn, and Sen. Carl Levin, D-Detroit, to retire. Last year, Rogers opted not to pursue Levin‘s seat, despite pressure from fellow Republicans, to focus on his job overseeing the Intelligence committee.

This of course presents yet another opportunity for a Michigan conservative pickup in the 8th congressional district. It also can go the other way if a decent candidate is NOT found by April 22, which is Michigan’s filing deadline for the Aug 5 primary.

Windsock

Or, more accurately, windsuck.

Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration is reviewing whether some 300 same-sex marriages performed Saturday in four Michigan counties are valid, a spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Snyder spokeswoman Sara Wurfel said the governor’s office could make a determination on the legality of the marriages as early as Wednesday.

….

Following Friedman’s ruling and Schuette’s continued defense of the 2004 voter-approved ban, Snyder has stayed away from reporters’ questions this week about his views on gay marriage.

REST

There is no end to the deceitful propaganda that continues to flow from this administration. Snyder has a J.D. from U of M, and damned well knows this Anthony Kennedy-esque out in Left field opinion is being appealed, and is sworn to the same Oath to defend Michigan’s Constitution as every other elected office.

DicksI’m also not impressed with the Alticor checkbook that funds the MI-GOP fueling the divide with their cabana boi’s publicity stunt.

If it weren’t for Ruth Johnson, I’d stay home in November.

“Take a Vote, Not a Vacation”

Remember the last time you heard those infamous words blasted in the Mitten? I do. We all ended up with Snydercaid Expansion. How did that work out? Well, now we have a Speaker of the House walking back on his $25 fee per insured vehicle he brazenly sneaked in to fund Snydercaid Expansion that he and SML Richardville, knew damned well was unfunded within a House proposal of allegedly lowering vehicle insurance rates, which coincidentally, the insurance industry is lobbying for just as they did with “no-fault” decades prior because… it would keep rates low.

OK, so? Where is this post going, CS?

The Way “The Game Is Played”

What an interesting morning I had on a ‘day off’ from my normal routine of looking for something constructive to do with my day. While distributing Kris Anne Hall workshop flyers and soliciting donations for the D1 fundraiser, I stopped at a friend’s home and the coffee cup discussion immediately became local and State politics. The bane of the discussion was a phrase I have become increasingly disgusted with…”the way the ‘GAME’ is played”…Like it or not, to WIN…we have to PLAY!!!
