Who swapped Willard's drink for a Red Bull during this fundraiser?
"These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low-taxes doesn't connect."
From the good people at Mother Jones of all places.
Willard's premise has one fatal flaw: People who are too lazy to do anything to better themselves does not always translate into people who will be at the polls on election day.
Other than that observation, submitted w/o any further comment.

The deadbeats sitting in the taxpayer hammock for the past 10-15 years have been properly served.
The Michigan Department of Human Services (DHS) has reissued 11,162 notices to Family Independence Program (FIP) recipients who have reached their FIP cash assistance lifetime limits, in accordance with the ruling by U.S. District Judge Paul D. Borman on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2011. The reissued notices cite the appropriate legal authority as well as more prominent language on the appeal process, as required in the ruling.
Thanks for the added redundancy costs ya bunch of Looters.

You read it right, folks.
SAGINAW -- A Saginaw-based advocacy group for the poor has filed a federal lawsuit against the state Department of Human Services seeking to prevent more than 11,100 Michigan families from losing cash assistance under stricter enforcement of a 48-month limit on welfare benefits.
Our tax dollars at work against us.

Perhaps invoking the fighting spirit of a champion, Bing spoke before the massive bronze statue of heavyweight champion Joe Louis at Cobo Center.
Mayor Bing, they've had as much as 15 years to prepare. They were also given the heads-up in the GoverNerds SOTS address. Safety nets were never meant to be Democrat hammocks.

Or something like that.
Detroit-- Mayor Dave Bing, working on plans to reshape Detroit neighborhoods, was getting a walking tour of New Orleans to observe how that city is recovering more than five years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast. Bing and other members of his administration were meeting today with New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Bing spokeswoman Karen Dumas told The Associated Press. They were in New Orleans to see relocation efforts, blight reduction and land-use strategies.
