Sundays Sanity: Tax-Exempt Entity and Their Billionaires

For those unaware, the NFL is tax-exempt and also plundering our wallets for a $Billion a year.

Have you ever heard of the old expression, “like placing a diamond on a goats ass” ? Billionaire moochers and looters with their bought off politicians enabling taxpayer funded Flavian Amphitheaters are a good definition of it.

When the Lions and Tigers stadium deal was struck, one newspaper headline headline joyfully proclaimed a “Detroit comeback.” William Clay Ford, Jr., the Lions’ vice chairman, said that being “an integral part of Detroit’s renaissance is an absolute honor of the highest degree.”

And, a short 14 years later, Detroit files for Chapter 9 protection. Brilliant propaganda espoused by, Mr. Bill One playoff win in 56 years Ford Jr., yes?

Look to David Kroll in the 90th District

Just happened across this little blurb in mLive, and talk about a vicious circle of dysfunction.

A Holland woman who was a Washington, D.C., aide to former U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra is running for state House in the 90th District.
….

The seat is currently held by state Rep. Joe Haveman, R-Holland, who cannot seek re-election due to term limits.
….

Garcia said. “With term limits, we can’t afford to have somebody learn the ropes (before they get to work).”
….
Daniela Garcia planned to announce her candidacy for the Republican nomination Friday, Feb. 7, at Alpenrose Park, 4 E. 8th St. in Holland, with Hoekstra in attendance. She joins a field that has five other candidates.
…..

She is the daughter of former Holland schools superintendent Frank Garcia [collected pension age 54].
Garica worked with U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers and during Hoekstra’s last two years in Congress [snip]

Is anything above really something to boast about? Let’s refresh our memories on Pete Hoekstra.

Folks, you have an opportunity for better in the 90th District, and his name is David Kroll.

Let’s nip the “Little Ronna” Talk in the bud Right here, Right now

It sure doesn’t take long for the dregs of the Third world voting MI-GOP to reveal what is their next scheme. For example? OK, take a full-time wannabe somebody in Oakland County, who used to be a staffer for ousted Joe “it’s not your money” Knollenberg, now working the crony nepotism angle for filling the opening of the National Committeewoman spot. Skip to 20:57 in the podbean.

Yippie. It’s the “Big Ronna” and “Little Ronna” show.

Oh, and old brother “arithmetic” Romney, 24 + 4 = 30

Michigan’s Gang Of Polyps. These people making up the state Party apparatchik truly are sociopaths.

This is What Rick Snyder is Bailing Out?

via WXYZ

So, this is what Snyder, Richardville, and Bolger, are peddling as their $350M “Grand Bargain”. Got it. And, Oakland County you sure know how to pick winners too.

“That is why it was a no-brainer when I supported a vote on the DIA millage in 2012. More than 63% of Oakland County voters agreed with me. And a majority of voters in Wayne and Macomb did, too.” – L. Brooks Patterson 01/19/2014

Ann Arbor Law Firm Files Amicus Brief Supporting Religious Freedom

It seems we have found a regular place in writing about and defending religious liberties lately.banned

That’s perfectly alright, as many are too afraid to stand up for them, and SOMEBODY has to do it. As noted at watchdog wire, the Thomas More Law Center has engaged in the fight as well:

Claiming “an unprecedented attack on religious liberty,” the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) filed an amicus brief, this past Tuesday, in support of the plaintiffs in two separate cases, Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc, and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., pending in the U.S. Supreme Court. In both cases, the plaintiffs are devout Christians who built their businesses from the ground up. They object on religious grounds to providing certain contraceptives which are mandated by the Department of Health and Human Services headed by Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Both cases are scheduled for oral arguments on March 25, 2014 and the Court’s decision is expected sometime before the end of June.

In this case it is about the freedom to refrain from supporting things that run afoul of one’s conscience, freedom of association, and free speech.  IMO, It could also be argued under the 5th amendment, under due process as well.

More to come.

Dave’s Not Going Anywhere

So-farAnd there appears to be no strong sentiment outside of the Democrat party, and a few belligerent GOP party thugs who are looking for him to do so.  A recent interview including this:

According to Agema, when fear and intimidation are applied, those would speak against the party’s status quo “immediately shrink back and say Boy, I’m going to be quiet, because if I say anything I’m going to get the same ridicule.”

Indeed.

Along with the article is a running poll asking if Dave should step down, or stick it out.

Not surprisingly, as of my own vote in support, the results are near unanimous.

Staying The course for conservative values
