AFP Michigan – 2014 Tax Day Rally Livonia Video

Okay, for those of you you didn’t have the chance to attend one of the rallies scheduled across Michigan, I’ve posted video below from Saturday’s AFP Tax Day Rally at Schoolcraft College in Livonia (H/T KG Two).

All in all, the video I saw was interesting and informative.

Congressman Bentivolio was there meeting with attendees as they arrived, unfortunately they didn’t have him speaking to the group as a whole during the event.

Michigan State Senator Patrick Colbeck was there and gave a short speech about himself, his term in office and some of the shenanigans various groups, whom I strongly suspect were affiliated with The Center for Michigan, pull on incoming legislators.

WJR Air Personality Frank Beckmann was next. What I personally found curious is how his style in front of a live audience is subtly (but definitely noticeably) different than when he is on the air. He really needs to adopt the latter when he is on ‘JR.

Next was Town Hall Contributor and WIBC Indy Air Personality Tony Katz. Cigar quips aside, I had enjoyed his portion more than Beckmann’s, especially with his take on direct taxation and its history. Nothing against rooting for the “hometown” guy, he was just more interactive with the audience (with apologies to Aretha Franklin).

Bill McMaster was also there meeting with those attending, but he didn’t speak before the group either.

Just a couple of quick notes:

First, my main gear was down due to battery problems (now fixed), so I had to send out my backup gear. Because of this problem, the video is broken up into several parts due to the swapping out of batteries and cards. Fortunately, this happened mainly between speakers and only for a few seconds at most.

Second, all told the video is about 1 hour 15 minutes long.

Third, to the AFP-Michigan people: From what I’ve been told, it was a good morning/afternoon, so kudos are in order. But you guys really need to give us more heads up on these events!

The headcount that was given to me was about 150 people.

Not bad given the notice, but remember: More heads up = More People.

Fourth, pw’s are case sensitive.

That been said, sit back and enjoy at your leisure.

Part 4

 

And finally, Part 5 (FYI, there is a portion at the very end that is NSFW. It is relevant to the point the speaker is making…Consider yourself warned).
