Really! I’m a conservative just like the rest of you. Pinky swear!
Lil’ Guv Brian Calley, accompanied Gov. Snyder to Macomb County this week at the Macomb Chamber Alliance luncheon, and after a predictable speech on their successes in office, “teases” a potential run for Michigan Governor.
No, I’m not going to drive up web traffic to his soon-to-be campaign site by posting any links to it here.
This is the best that the republican kakistocracy can do?
So far, Team “r” has a candidate who supported bailing out Detroit and giving local governments the opportunity to drive themselves even further in debt by floating bonds to pay for promises they made to their employees which they knew they couldn’t possibly keep.
Now we’re seeing a candidate whose conservative philosophical leanings are questionable, at best.
Does Snydercaid, Common Core or using the power of state government to pay for his own daughter’s autism coverage ring a bell to anyone here?

Flint Mayor Karen I Love Rizzo Weaver and Great Lakes Water Authority CEO Sue McCormick have reached a 30 year deal for Flint to purchase water from the Great Lakes Water Authority. The City of Flint had signed up to purchase its water from the nascent Karegnondi Water Authority in March 2013 and the State of Michigan concurred in April. Everyone in Flint City government, save one councilman, has agreed to source Flint’s water from the KWA. Even Mayor Weaver. Until this week.
The Weaver/McCormick deal has GLWA paying Flint at least $ 7 million a year to cover Flint’s share of the bonds issued to finance the KWA. A total of $ 210 million over the 30 year contact period.
Where will that $ 210 million come from? GLWA is not the Federal Reserve, they cannot just create money out of thin air. GLWA will extract the money from the
victims ratepayers in the other communities it ‘serves’.
Mayor Weaver and CEO McCormick will transform GLWA water rates into yet another exaction imposed upon most of Southeastern Michigan to subsidize Flint. Without any input from those
victims ratepayers. A blatant fee as tax evasion of Headlee. Governor Snyder, of course, approves wholeheartedly.
This is government theft, Headlee evasion, and a rich fount of future corruption.

Here’s to still and cloudy days
There must be a class in our taxpayer subsidized higher education system that trains government employees for subsiding business ventures that cannot survive on their own. A preparation of sorts for the most productive work in Michigan state government.
A123 systems, LG Chem, etc.. Energy is the hot topic, but renewable energy has gotten a stake of the treasury in the past few years.
And to date, it has never been completely debunked as being a future solution for diminished resources.
That’s OK actually. Under certain circumstances, renewable options provide ways to solve all manner of the issues. Lawn lighting, roadside signs, or limited use for the cabin in the woods, all of which can be effectively served with solar, or other off-the-grid generation

It had to happen.
Police in Michigan are having one set of tools taken away from them in their pursuit of justice. On March 28, a bill Introduced by Senators EMMONS, HUNE, SCHUITMAKER, WARREN and O’BRIEN was referred to the Committee on Judiciary. SB 275 adds language to the exemptions of culpability of police officers that effectively cuts them off… er makes sexual penetration in the course of a prostitution investigation no longer acceptable.
Sorry fellas, guess you will have to go home and tell mom that your career in vice squad is kaput.

The MEDC is off the hook corrupt.
I know we have expressed issues before with the cronyism going on with the MEDC and its failures of transparency and effectiveness. Picking winners only works for ..the winners.
Its not hard to recognize unadulterated failure when we see it. If a person is hungry for the truth, its right in front of us. One need only look at hangar 42, RASCO, overpaying Film credits by 42%, and A123 just to whet the appetite!
But certainly, the MEDC provides a lot of high paying jobs for otherwise failed business leaders and political partisans. No way in hell will it willingly surrender the family secrets and threaten the taxpayer goldmine. Indeed, no dog and pony show of ‘allowing’ bids for outside agencies to measure it’s (the MEDC’s) effectiveness will ever meet the threshold of honest brokering.
Not without some pressure anyhow.
