Kalkaska Mayor demonstrates common sense by not engaging in unwinnable enterprise.
I just love it.
If someone said “hey come on by for a bit, cause we want to humiliate you, kick your grapes, and pour shame syrup all over you,” the usual response from squishy politicos, would be “can I bring the sprinkles?” Tis true. That is essentially what has happened in the past.
It goes like this:
1. Politico or popular figure says or does something considered politically incorrect, or off-colored.
2. Rage from community, usually driven from those who simply don’t like that politico. Because .. words.
3. News outlets, always looking for the next hand out of humble pie pile on with sensationalized reporting, never taking a position, but carefully framing the events.
4. Politico, feeling pressure from all side caves in, and feeds the beast.
Few can take the onslaught of abuse, usually delivered by the crazy left in a way that would make Saul Alinsky proud.
“Humor is essential to a successful tactician, for the most potent weapons known to mankind are satire and ridicule.”
We already know the lefties ain’t too humorous up in these here parts. There isn’t really much else for them.
What will the next over-hyped roll out of critical information be???
So Brian Calley has not yet come out and said if he was running for Governor ..US Senate ..Muffin man.
He used the build up, the excitement, the hype! ..To announce a legislative effort. The May 30 announcement at the Detroit Crony Club’s Mackinac Leadership conference brought us news that The conservative boy wonder wants to spearhead efforts for a part time legislature.
“Mackinac Island — Lt. Gov. Brian Calley is spearheading a petition drive and potential 2018 ballot proposal to make the Michigan legislature part-time and cut legislator pay, the Portland Republican announced Tuesday.”
Ballot proposal hmm?
While the idea of a part time legislature is a great idea, it is not entirely original, it does not set him apart from ‘the pack’ as Schuette beat him to the punch, and the timing is hilarious. Political opportunism on the back of good policy is a part of Calley’s past. He used RTW promises to get a hand picked supreme court nominee (who lost) and now after a decade of service in Lansing, and NOW it’s apparently time to ‘pull the trigger’ on this ‘necessary‘ reform.
The announcement however, left open the speculation of whether Calley would be pursuing higher office. His website hints at yet another big news event, telling us to come back June 1st. Obviously, Calley has a string of announcements planned all the way to the GOP leadership conference. Keeping us in suspense will keep us engaged with (presumably) his next campaign bid!
As if last year’s defeat of the RTA tax hasn’t discouraged Penske and the rest of the pro RTA tax crowd (not to fear…it’ll be back on the ballot in less than two years), they now find themselves in the sights of the (Not So) Pure Michigan crowd!
Hmmmmm, WHY hasn’t the republican legislature repealed the law authorizing this shakedown yet?
Anyway…just a little something to bring a smile to you this afternoon.

Some of the language isn’t exactly SFW, so turn down your speakers for about a minute.
When I allow people to speak during city council meetings, I do it because I’m a nice guy.
Harbor Beach Mayor Gary Booms
WRONG, Mr. Mayor don’t-know-the-law. It’s a legal requirement. In that spirit, I have decided to publish an email I recently sent “Gary” — so more light may be put upon his false self-virtue. Below is that email:
I hope you don’t mind me calling you Gary. I don’t mind me calling you Gary, so we should be good.
I read a recent comment you made during a public meeting as Mayor.
(5) A person shall be permitted to address a meeting of a public body under rules established and recorded by the public body. The legislature or a house of the legislature may provide by rule that the right to address may be limited to prescribed times at hearings and committee meetings only.
A professional tip: if you’re going to extol your virtues, it shouldn’t be over something the law requires you to do. That just seems tacky and insults the intelligence of anyone who is informed.
My hope is to reach nearly every voter in Harbor Beach, to let them know what a self-righteous and pompous guy their Mayor is.
We know the guy doesn’t live up here. That’s the easy part.
The drooling fool forgot to review the video below the fold. If he had, he might have seen ol Festus ridin up there on the bonanza.
A snot nosed kid with no substantive accomplishments in his life except to be married to the biggest fundraiser for Barack Obama. And he wants to represent a district that he has only visited three or four times in his life; two of which were to run against the ‘hillbilly’ locals.
Michiganian Steven Crowder is great for a laugh from time to time.
Way back when .. Or at least in April of this year, Crowder produced this Schoolhouse Rock parody. Demonstrating the absurdity of our convening culture with shock humor, Crowder clearly paints a picture of the current social shredding at work.
The capitol steps used in this render it a Michigan worthy piece.
