After four long years of legislative hearings, public education, and good-old-fashioned compromise, the Michigan Senate and House last week passed a series of bills to regulate internet gaming in the state. Earning overwhelming, bipartisan supermajorities in both houses, the bills landed on Governor Rick Snyder’s desk with a clear mandate from the legislature.
What did Snyder do? The Governor ‘dropped the ball in the endzone’, vetoed the bills at the 11th-hour, and then he was less than honest with Michiganders about his reasons for doing so. Par for the course for someone who started with such promise but leaves the office with approval ratings in the 30’s – covered in the stench of the Flint water crisis and sexual abuse scandal at Michigan State.
According to his veto message, Governor Snyder killed regulated internet gaming because the data doesn’t exist to justify it, and he fears that internet gaming will cannibalize the state lottery and existing casinos.
Truthfully, I wonder if Rick Snyder couldn’t have replaced Senator Whitmer on the Capitol steps that day 6 plus years ago.
Yeah that was a boot to the backside of the guy who really needed to go, but it’s not getting any better. For those of you with a strong constitution, rewind and play all of the video linked above. It’s obviously family friendly because it has kids in it holding signs, right?
Gretchen Whitmer is hardly friendly to the patriarchal designs of safety for the family however. While promoting theV-J-J day nonsense in that video, she at the same time has been speaking to weakening the protections afforded to us by the authorities protecting our borders and removing gang elements.
Ice Ice baby.
Probably not well thought out, her parting comment in this video speaks volumes if she intends to act upon it given that the job is now hers. Accountability to one’s words are the hallmark of the up and coming XX Democrat activist, yes?
Somehow, there is a disconnect with the XX movement and the very ‘patriarchal’ nature of SE Michigan immigration however. The V-J-J day exercise seems to run in conflict with the practices of such favored ‘immigrant’ communities that practice FGM.
Arguably, the forced mutilation of XX children is tantamount to kidnapping and torture, and should be considered under federal statute period. However liberal judges are now a dime a dozen, and while supported by wing nut lefty XX’ers cannot support the V-J-J position that “my V-J-J is my own.”
