Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman and former Michigan GOP chair Ronna McDaniel issued the following statement celebrating the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:
“Today is a historic day for Americans, as they receive the biggest tax cut for the working class in a generation,” said Chairwoman McDaniel. “Thanks to Congressional Republicans and President Trump for keeping their promise to the American people by passing historic tax relief, all without a single Democrat vote.””Democrats will be held accountable next November when their constituents realize they voted against more money in their paycheck and refused to take part in helping more Americans be successful.”
….Take the liberal tears from the idiot you just destroyed in your debate, dissemble your American made Springfield M1911 .45 caliber handgun and apply the tears in order to clean the mechanism, reassemble and proceed to purchase ANTIFA and ISIS hunting permits and max out on tags.
Mr. Tokie’s position paper leaked and the entirely humorless administration of Albion College has charged Mr. Tokie with violating Albion’s policy against the ‘use of, or threatened use of, physical force or violence’.
Alabama US Senate candidate Roy Moore was unfit by the standards of the elite political class.
Brash, unapologetic and likes the ladies a bit younger.
Undeniably, Judge Roy Moore is the guy who married a woman fourteen years his junior. She was 23, he was 37, and he has been married to her for 33 years.
That last part might well go under the radar, as the theme of the year is sexual predation. Under the current hysteria it is far easier to assign a label of ‘creeper,’ ‘pedophile,’ or ‘mall stalker’ than to look at the reality of the man’s life. It is apparently now far easier to accuse a public persona of violating the mob conscience than it is to defend such accusations made in the 11th hour of an important electoral milestone.
And in that last, even the #Nevertrump insanity found plausible means to lash out indirectly at a Trump agenda that has so far proven them not just wrong, but simply foolish.
#NeverTrumpers had their symbol of failure to rally about. They said Roy Moore was a pedophile, a dirtbag, a predator, and a creepy guy because he was committed to Trump’s agenda, even though Trump himself had originally rejected Moore in favor of a mainstream preferred Luther Strange.
I wonder how many have spent time in the Pugsley Correctional Facility for the charge of selling pot?
Those days are over, as the institution has closed to it’s prison population. Any remaining dope peddlers are likely moved to other facilities, and … From today’s TC Ticker:
” In the wake of the closure of Pugsley Correctional Facility last year, Kingsley is preparing to trade prison jobs for pot jobs – an option that also is open to neighboring Fife Lake, though township officials there have so far rejected the prospect.
Fifteen months after Pugsley’s closure, Kingsley has signed off on permitting marijuana production facilities at its industrial park, a move that officials say wasn’t a direct response to the closure of the prison but should offset some of the job losses. The village has yet to approve a license for any particular business to operate a medical marijuana production facility, but it’s expected to soon receive an application from the Canadian company TheraCann that could call for the construction of a $20 million facility employing 100 people. “
The race is finally shaping up like we would expect.
The mix is in.
Lt. Governor Brian Calley has gone for the brass ring. An email from the inbox today:
“Dear Jason, Today I formally announce that I am a candidate for Governor of Michigan. I am running for Governor to finish Michigan’s Comeback and make Michigan the most prosperous state in the country.
And not to miss an opportunity to get a little rush from the announcement is political newcomer Jim Hines, who in his own email blast says:
“I welcome Brian Calley to the race for Governor. We now have three term-limited Republican politicians seeking their next job, all pretending to be outsiders.”
Each of those term limited guys could probably write their own check quite well. So I am not sure how the term limited fact will sway anything, but Calley’s engagement in the process does shuffle the political support deck, bringing the not-Schuette candidate class into higher probability realm.
Family gatherings & Politics together are the best, aren't they?
This year, our Thanksgiving gathering will be short four brothers.
No dear reader, they are all still alive as far as I know, but it is one of those years where the annual gathering in our home will have more non-blood extended family than blood related for the great repast. Its just how things worked out.
On any given year prior, the numbers present could have been between 15-20 with an ever changing roster of friends joining us. White, black whatever, you never knew what the make up would be at the table by the time we blessed the meal with prayer.
No matter the diversity or lack thereof, we could always count on healthy debate and discussion of the day’s political happenings. As much as so many fear the arguments that can happen, it has traditionally been this part of the discourse that so many of my kin cherish, and so many friends find entertaining (I suppose).
It is my hope that all of you are able to celebrate today with those whom you love and respect, and that your day is filled with wonderful conversations and interesting dialogue.
