We are becoming a nation of the lawless.
Sometimes law enforcement or appropriate legal action arrives too late.
This morning, I learned about an election law violator. A call from a contact in Lansing gave me the heads up on a high profile lawbreaker in Traverse City. Apparently, Michael Moore thought it would be good to let people not just know how he voted, but to broadcast the image of his ballot explicitly:
Gosh, haven’t we been warned incessantly by the media constantly about how showing pictures of our ballots is illegal?
Certainly in Michigan it is.

It's not Republicans who are trying to disarm Michiganians.
Yes Michigan, there are differences between the Democrats and Republicans.
Before we start shooting ourselves in the foot and pretending that Johnson-Weld Libertarians are the neo-Republicans from a whigged out GOP, remember that Weld once (and likely still) favored gun control. Not too far away from Weld is Hillary, who quite simply wants to disarm a nation that might fight back as she consolidates power for the final blow.
Let their be no confusion about the current incarnation of the Democrat party, and the need to disarm the people in this state as well. Dressed as an ‘assault weapons ban’ Michigan’s HB-5996 introduced a couple days ago goes all New York State in a ‘New York Minute.’ Banning certain cosmetic features, functional elements, magazines over 10 rounds, and requiring new registrations of legacy equipment is the hallmark of the east coast styled gun grabbers.

Deranged clown robs debate of dignity, punished by Indiana governor
No matter which side of the political fence you might be on, you saw that Gov Mike Pence pummeled Sen Tim Kaine in last night’s debate.
Taking a page from Joe Biden’s drug induced debate performance of a few years ago, Kaine put on the creepy clown smiley face and persuaded America that he was actually trying out for Batman 12 – Resurrection of Joker. With a style of interruptions never seen before in presidential level debates, he embarrassed himself and quite possibly Hillary Clinton (assuming embarrassment is even possible for these two).
Pence wisely did not allow the adolescent antics of Kaine to get under his skin, stayed focused, and even professed his Christian faith in a way not often seen on a debate stage. He demonstrated class and accurately described the lessening of our nation’s security under the watch of Hillary and Obama, all the while Kaine was verbally poking him with a stick.
Team Trump looks real heroic after last night’s performance.

Expect cigarette sting operations to be in full swing in the peoples republic of Ann Arbor this winter
One thing that the Democrats are good at, is ‘Nanny Statism’
If in any particular form it poses a health risk, you better damned well believe it can fall under a federal mandate, state law or local ordinance. Democrats, progressives, and big-government little-minds know what is best for you. Even if they can hardly manage their own lives, its for your own good.
So it comes as no surprise that Ann Arbor, bastion of elitist progressive nincompoopery has decided that unless you have obtained the age of 21, you cannot buy smokes in their little Utopian safe-space paradise. From Cap-Con:
“The Ann Arbor City Council last week voted for an ordinance that will ban the sale of tobacco products to people under 21, making it the first city in Michigan to raise the legal purchasing age from 18.”
So, has Ann Arbor made the statement that its population does not mature quickly enough to make such decisions?
Next up, no recruiting by the military of anyone under 25?

BK Guy: Oh.. Not really, but I am. I just think that is a better choice.
Customer: But you work here at BK?
BK Guy: For about 60 years. Yessiree.

I have been amused in the past when liberal Democrat demonstrations spark a chant of “This is what Democracy looks like..”
No. its not.
They have achieved the goals of their epic struggle against tradition, rule of law, and flat out decency and morals. It is NOT what a Democracy looks like. This is what a Banana Republic looks like:
FBI Director James Comey has announced that Hillary Clinton acted ‘carelessly’ but committed no crimes with regards to her private e-mail server through which she conducted official government business. Further, he announced there would be no charges filed whatsoever. This is despite numerous criminal offenses being already known by the general public through a plethora of FOIA. Officially, there is no longer any rule of law in this country.
Read the rest.

Once again, Democrat aristocracy tries to buy a Northern Michigan political seat.
It is clear that the first
lady gent of Obama-for-America fundraiser Julianna Smoot is sure of his impending primary success.
The race between Lon Johnson-Smoot, and (a guy who actually lives in the district) Jerry Cannon might have been a bit more balanced, but for a December car accident that temporarily put into question the retired General’s ability to campaign. Any recent uptick in Cannon’s perceived chances are apparently not preventing Lon Johnson-Obama-Smoot from tying up the airwaves just before the general election in late October.
The guy who has a cabin-in-the-woods-for-residency has purchased several thousand in TV ads in Marquette already as reported to the FCC. Cash money already spent
The list below shows recent purchases made

Just to be clear.
A while back this site left the rah-rah part of the neighborhood.
Rightmi.com stopped being the default cheerleader for the Michigan GOP as a matter of principle. Particularly since the primary part of the MiGOP has all but abandoned its tenets and reason to exist. What exists now is a shell of pseudo conservatism, and a mockery of the platform under which the party pretends to exist. Arguably, we still prefer the Republicans who run on conservative platforms but the party mechanism makes it tougher to sort them out.
There is some seriously spoiled fruit in the party. Snyder is no ‘Republican,’ yet his ‘purchasing’ of, and carrying the flag as one, is enough to fool the soft stupid on both sides of the aisle. The machinery in place to keep Republicans in majority has corrupted the ability to recruit and retain true conservative leadership as well. Ronna Romney does her part to keep those crazy doctrinaire Republicans in check using party money and resources.
In fact, its one of the reasons I am changing my phone service to a different carrier. It allows me to block solicitations for the MiGOP, and these calls usually come from outside the state anyhow.
Having said all that, I still believe today’s loyalist Democrats are the bane of intellectual development. Even more so than the blind loyalist Republicans who still support bad apples no matter what.. Flint, Detroit, etc.. The inability to look at the results of generational liberal rule and deduce the higher incompetency rate is beyond mind blowing.

House Democrat turns on the heat.
Kirk Steudle was appointed long before Rick Snyder was the new sheriff.
Jennifer Granholm appointed Steudle to the Michigan Department of Transportation post in 2006. He did such a bang up job leading to our current road conditions across the state, that no local communities have had to pursue their own millages for road fixes, and the trunklines, bridges and arteries are in top notch shape. In fact, we have been able to lower taxes, return money to taxpayers and by-golly, put shock absorber companies at risk due to lack of business.
Now, [SARC OFF] a Democrat legislator is doing the job that any one of dozens of Republicans should have done LONG before ever asking taxpayers to bend over last May. From the Lansing State Journal:
In a news release late Wednesday, State Rep. Scott Dianda, D-Calumet, a former MDOT employee and state employee union official, said he’d introduced a bipartisan resolution citing numerous issues — from idle railcars that cost millions of dollars to state auditors’ repeated warnings about weak oversight of MDOT’s warranty program — that he says show Steudle is “unfit to lead the department.”
Huh, I wonder where we have seen that before?

Opposing proposal 15-1 are the overtaxed citizens from BOTH sides of the spectrum.
Photo from actual Traverse City Protest.
It could possibly be an unusual gathering April 15.
Given the fact that most conservative Republicans and the left-of-center Democrats agree that the May 5th proposal is an unmitigated disaster, its possible they might actually walk side by side at 11AM in Front of the Traverse City Post Office on Tax Day. If one watches the polling results, follows through by reading the comments on the major media pro 15-1 shill attempts, one might walk away thinking the only the political class centrists are the ones who really really want this garbage.
Holding breath on working together? Not entirely.
However, what a treat it would be to shove this bad medicine down the throat of the cronyist Snyder and his milquetoast minions. The mantra of there being “no plan B” is worn out already. Putting taxpayers into a corner might elicit thoughts of the wolverine that is threatened once this play is done. Higher taxes hurt the left as much as the right, and passage of this boondoggle is a constitutionally guaranteed increase of taxes every single year.
Where: In front of Traverse City Post Office on Union and State St.
When: 11 am till 1 pm or as long as you can. April 15th tax day (Depending on size we may walk to the Parkway and Union St.) Appropriate signs please.
If you are in the area on April 15 at 11AM, join 15-1 opponents to say NO to higher taxes.
