SATURDAY: Dexter Woman to Confront Congressman Gary Peters for Attempting to Silence Her ObamaCare Story
An ad that Americans For Prosperity has been running with a story of a woman severely affected by the law, was challenged in court. AFP and the woman in the video are apparently going to the source of the lawsuit.
Americans for Prosperity-Michigan Activists to Join Julie Boonstra for News Conference Outside Rep. Gary Peters’ Home in Bloomfield Hills
LANSING, Mich.—Julie Boonstra, the Michigan mother and leukemia survivor featured in a new Americans for Prosperity Gary Peters issue ad, will seek to confront Congressman Peters at his residence in Bloomfield Hills today. Representative Peters has taken legal steps to silence Boonstra’s story and force television stations to pull the issue ad in which she is featured, off the airwaves. Click here to read the legal letter from the Peters Campaign: http://americansforprosperity.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Peters_letter.pdf
With some of Americans for Prosperity-Michigan’s most dedicated activists supporting her, Boonstra will stop by Gary Peters’ residence in Bloomfield Hills today in an effort to confront him directly about his attempts to intimidate and silence her. The media is invited to attend.
It will be interesting if he so much as goes out to get his mail.
More than once we have witnessed the attorney general’s office go after or closely watch gas station owners for price gouging after severe weather events.
But is it even appropriate to do so?
In 2008, Governor Jennifer Granholm had taken a threatening posture reminiscent of HER AG days, and as pointed out, I believe she was wrong. I approached this subject with support towards those who would profit from temporary misery, and ended with support for those especially miserable:
But when considering the situation, how bad is it to charge more for gas, and at WHAT point is it considered price gouging? Not only that, but what RIGHT does GOVERNMENT have to CONTROL Prices? If a station owner is looking at NO deliveries for the next two to four days raises his prices because his supplier is unable to guarantee delivery, who is in a position to criticize it?. What is that person supposed to do? By gas prices going high temporarily, it guarantees that those who TRULY NEED the resource will have it.
This video completes the argument.
After Event Report - MUCC Hosted Event In Acme, Michigan February 17, 2014
Last night’s Agenda 21 party (oops, I mean Land Trust Town Hall) showed Rep. Wayne Schmidt as the pro-government, anti private property progressive he is. Sitting on a panel hosted by MUCC, surrounded by reps from the Land Conservancy, MEDC, and League of ‘Conservation’ (NOT conservative) Voters; he pressed this audience for support of his bill (HB 5210) to remove the cap on State owned land in the Northern Lower and UP.
Apparently, 5 million acres of State owned land is NOT enough.
Yet another traditional Michigan community is pressured to elevate a behavior based identity to protected status
If, after reading the previous article by Mr. Heine, any of the Bay County Commissioners could still affirm the dangerous lifestyle of Sodom, we would know there is at least one more formerly ‘traditional’ community that has lost its way.
We are being told that Today at 4 p.m., those Bay County Commissioners will be considering passage of an ordinance banning discrimination of LGBT workers in Bay County with a public hearing. Actual voting on the controversial issue will not happen until March 11.
And even though there have been no reported incidents of this type of discrimination, it is being pushed through by those with an agenda of self destructive behavior. It’s one more opportunity for this lifestyle to be ‘in our face’ and promoted as ‘normal’ civilized behavior, to grow the ranks of those who participate in an unhealthy paradigm.
Fun from Friday.
If you didn’t get a chance to be there in person, the AFP organized rally greeted Obama last Friday with a line up of signs. The event in East Lansing drew about 50 according to this news report. Obama was on hand to hold a service for the church of agricultural welfare.
There are definitely better ways to leverage the [accounting trick] found money into a better revenue generating machine.
Watch the video below, then recall that the rate was supposed to return to 3.9% by 2015 anyhow. And in the end we still must fill out a tax form. (MI Fairtax would take care of that)
Truthfully, if the legislature really wants to make this state job friendly, and presumable spend off that pretend surplus of a billion bucks, there is another place far more suitable. They might consider attacking something that raises that much, and is a business punisher.
ELIMINATE a whole tax infrastructure. Finally rid the scourge that is the personal property tax, levied on businesses. Quit talking around the edges and looking to exempt one type of industry or another. Just break out the eraser and do Michigan business owners justice and make it disappear.
It would encourage manufacturing to return, and make the state more appealing to potential start ups.
But, perhaps some might think we are whistling in the wind.
Is it because income tax reductions are more sexy than solid business inviting policy
Who says politics and sport should not mix.
Buffett, a resident manatee in the aquarium at the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, has picked the Denver Broncos to beat the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday’s big game.
And Buffett’s prognostication shouldn’t be ignored: He’s predicted the correct Super Bowl winner for the last six years.
RIghtMi finds it hard to argue with success and a truly scientific method of prognostication. We call it Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos beating the Seahawks by 3
