Want to see how Ronulans deep-six Rep. Bentivolio's reelection? Chem-trails.
"We'll bring in some Air Force folks right here in our district. We can have an oversight reform committee hearing right here and we'll investigate," said Bentivolio in response to an audience question. "I'd like to find out about it too."
Oh, Lord. Please Kerry, don't play with your vegetables. We here at RM didn't bust our asses in 2012, just to have a few PaulTards in the crowd grenade us in 2014.

Liberals just don't get it.
When government does something, it has an impact. Tax something? You get less of it. Subsidize X? You get more of it. Similarly, when government imposes additional costs on an economic activity, the activity dries up or becomes more expensive.
Such is the case with the state legislature here in the Enchanted Mitten. Today's Macomb Daily reports that the Michigan House has passed a bill that would impose a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures. As reported previously:
"The state legislation would provide a 90-day redemption period for those facing imminent foreclosure. If the homeowner submits to financial counseling offered by state or federal housing experts, they would then enter into negotiations with their lender. The mortgage company would be required to attempt to seek some middle ground -- a loan modification that could prevent the impending mortgage default."
Ah, the genius of our elected officials. Take a contract between two willing parties in which one of them is not performing and force the other -- the one who put up the money in the first place! -- not to utilize its contractual remedies for at least 90 days, while the balance due continues to grow. As I said, genius.
