Sunlight is the best disinfectant? Then let the sun shine, baby...
GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Calling Grand Rapids Community College "a cornerstone of our community for the past 96 years," Mayor George Heartwell is urging colleagues to pass a resolution of support for a millage that would ensure the school "can continue to serve their growing student population into the next century."
So, what is the pay and benefit packages for GRCC employees compared to the private sector? Ya, it's the buildings being neglected in this 'shared sacrifice' equation alright.
Why 'ol Mayor Heartwell and Chief Walking Eagle would make perfect wealth redistributing bookends, yes?

All we ask for is a little honesty in the party. A little integrity. A little expectation that Republicans behave like Republicans. We simply believe that a man/woman's word is his/her bond, and at the very least that principles have SOME bearing on behavior, decision making, self control.
Its not too much one wouldn't think. However, in the background, we are challenged as those who are pushing too hard on Republicans. The RightMichigan.com bunch has gone negative because we call out the bad. RightMichigan.com is turning Republicans off because they "don't recognize it anymore". And the current batch of writers needs to hit on the Democrats more, instead of the "10-1 assault on the GOP folks in power and in elected offices."
I would submit we HAVE BEEN attacking Dems. We have been attacking lefties, liberals, liberal pursuits, and questioning conservatives when they stray. If they call themselves Republican, it seems the fraud should not be called on our end.
But in the spirit of bringing together Republicans for a cause, let me at least stand up for a good man in the North, Dr. Dan Benishek. He needs your support right now, as the leftists line up and framing the energy issue out of place, attack the good that he has been a part of. As the Hard Core Democrat Agenda 21 FREAKS led by none other than former governor Milliken attack him in TV ads, he is being put at risk, and the congressional seat Republicans fought for in 2010 is at risk.
Snyder? You want to put the leash on your biggest fan?

Promoted because.. well, at the very least go to the end part.
Lisa P. Jackson, "No proven cases."
What is it going to take for people to finally get environmental radicals like Bill Milliken and his inspirational Agency out of their life's?

There once was a show on HBO called Tales from the Crypt that instantly came to mind when reading today's JOA News. Yes, Dearborn's very own Congressman Dingell or, the Crypt Keeper if you will, was busy playing a soft race-baiting card for the City of Detroits' $8,000,000,000.00 debt and "Targeting" Michigan's Republican legislature.
Washington-- Rep. John Dingell on Tuesday said the city of Detroit is in dire straits and needs state intervention to recover economically.
Exactly where has the "Dean of the House" been for the past 8 years? I don't recall Johnny talking this way during his fellow Democrat Governor Granholm reign that was preoccupied with running the entire state into the ground. Did the City of Detroit just magically become a cesspool of corruption, poverty and indebtedness on January 1, 2011 when Governor Snyder assumed Office? Nope. I suspect there's more to this new interest in Detroit than Johnny is leading onto...

It's difficult to comprehend Governor-Elect Snyder with it being only 8 short days after Michigan's voters turned a Jennifer Granholm and Andy Dillon controlled desolate wasteland of big spending, big taxes and high unemployment Democrat Party blue into a landslide of Republican red.
Seriously, Governor-Elect Snyder appears that he is not listening to what election night November 2010 said to him. Snyder won by default. Snyder was also fortunate enough to slip through a mud slinging Open Primary that even included to the bitter end, a pathetically obstinate 10% candidate that also lost an election to Debbie Stabenow. Thanks again, Bouchard.
The numerous news articles on Governor-Elect Snyders' obsession with former Gov. Milliken causes unease enough.
Snyder often expresses admiration for 88-year-old William Milliken, another moderate Republican and the state's longest-serving governor.
But a Jennifer Granholm parallel too?
