A Social Stop

Oh, Rebekah, oh my.

I guess she thought he wanted to ‘party?’

Click on Detroit has the video and the full story:

“All of a sudden, you have like one, two, three, four friends,” Warren said. “I’m just saying, you and I just barely met, and all of a sudden you have four friends.”

“They’re just making sure that I’m OK, and we’re on a very busy roadway, so that’s why,” the officer said.

“But who’s taking videos of this?” Warren said. “Because at some point, everyone wants to take videos of this, but, like, one, two, three, four. You have four friends. I’m all alone.”

The officer explained to her that more officers were needed to block off the freeway to make the shoulder safe.

“All of a sudden, you have five friends and I’m all alone,” Warren said. “I kind of want to call some of my friends.”

Have them bring chips, OK?

Still going round and round (and not getting anywhere in the process).

2020 SOTS.

This was more predictable than watching the 2020 DNC Presidential Debates. Just without the part where everyone tries to one-up each other by seeing who can give away the most stuff that doesn’t belong to them.

So, what could possibly go wrong here?

Just whose side are they on again, anyway?

Will this go into the goodies and new “rights” Gov. Whitmer will most certainly be espousing on tonight’s SOTS Speech?

Nope.

This one is more about a certain team playing for the wrong side.

Democrats being Democrats

As seen on the blogosphere >>> this <<< should serve as reason why Recucklicans squandered away billions of our tax dollars on a shithole that exclusively elects Democrats.

MEME Thread

It has been irritating to watch the #Shampeachment at times, but there are elements that make it bearable.

Particularly the memes that tell the stories of the loser who cannot get over the 2016 election, and who in all probability eat a lot of fingernails the night of November 3, 2020.   Add your own in the comments.   I will add as I get them

Sure Would Have

Been nice to have a place in that group.

Clearly someone is wrong.

Somehow I doubt it is any of the AGs in this video. But this really points out how we (Michigan) sure let the country down by electing the crazy snaz who is Michigan’s current AG.

Elections DO have consequences.

Chevy’$ Dolt

Because Debbie Dingell has a vested interest.

It’s the first major electric-vehicle legislation since Stabenow’s unsuccessful bill, which would have allowed automakers to offer a slightly lower tax credit of $7,000 for another 400,000 plug-in cars on top of the pre-existing cap.

In 2018, General Motors Co. and Tesla hit the lifetime ceiling of 200,000 electric vehicles, triggering a phase-out process cut the tax credit in half every six months until they hit zero at the beginning of this year.

Never forget.

Building A Better Fishwrap

Traditional Media misses one of the reasons behind Social Media successes.

Grand Traverse County has about 92,000 People within it’s boundaries.

Of those 92,000 people, there are 72,891 adults, (16,856 of whom are seniors) with most being (presumably) literate.  But of those who are literate (and some who are not), most are blessed with their own perspective, ideals, their own take on the community and thoughts on each day’s events.  In short they have their own opinions.

And for the time of all humanity before the early 1990’s, those opinions might have been limited to written correspondence, trips before a jury, the occasional party, social gathering, political event, or even a torch and pitchfork mob.  Daily expressions of perspective were hardly possible or practicable, or anything close to what can be done now within seconds on new media platforms such as email, Facebook, Gab , instagram, or Twitter.

And newsprint media has always had, yet strangely maintains it’s own limits.  The local newspaper is typically published daily and has one, and rarely two pages dedicated to the pulse of the community.

Of those nearly 17,000 seniors in our county (as described above), how many don’t have any interest in Facebook or the other platforms?  Out of those shouldn’t we be curious how many have given up on trying to let their views be seen because of limits that the print media enforces in its soy-ink ‘community’ forum?

Jack Has Our Back

Bergman Votes in Opposition to War Powers Resolution

Congressman Jack Bergman recognizes the difference between an executive act as commander in chief, and that which is a declaration of war.

Constitutionally, congress has the sole authority to declare war.  No one has any argument against that, and throughout the last several administrations this authority has been tested far too often.  However when the 45th POTUS, who has pledged to reduce and remove our presence in the region responds (as he should) to an immediate need to defend our men in the theater of wars created by all of his predecessors, he is backhanded by our congress.

The feckless congressional leadership in its attempt to undercut the efforts of the president to implement his peace through strength mission voted to morally support our enemies by allowing the passage of a resolution that claims the president has none of the powers guaranteed him by our constitution.

General Jack accepts none of that.  He says:

“I voted against H. Con. Res. 83, the House Democrats’ dangerous War Powers Resolution. As it’s merely a resolution, this type of legislation is never presented to the President and therefore holds no force or effect of law. The Democrats are clearly not serious, and this purely political resolution is just another attempt to weaken President Trump and ultimately weaken America.

“Attempting to tie the Administration’s hands at this time is dangerous, and Democrats publicly projecting to our adversaries that we won’t use force puts Americans at risk and endangers the safety of the United States and our allies.”

The 1st District representative is right.

If congress wants to end our efforts in the middle east region, This is not the way to do it.
