Cronyism

I’m sorry, but who are you people again?

I’m a little perplexed.

I don’t know whether or not to shake my head in disgust, or to laugh at the sheer stupidity of these people.

And who might they be, you are asking yourselves right about now?

Just in case there was any doubt.

From my inbox:

An excellent video summary of the shenanigans from last month in Lansing, along with an expanded explanation on the actual width and depth of the problem facing the Michigan Republican Party.

Ron, you have made Joe Biden look like the beacon of sanity yesterday.

Take wild guess what happens when you play stupid games?

I received a text yesterday from a friend who was in Lansing at the Convention. It was short and just one sentence long. It said this;

 “You called it.”

I wasn’t surprised when I received it, but I was certainly disappointed.

Republicans for Whitmer-Gilchrist 2022!

Don’t be stupid!

There is ABSOLUTELY no reason why this year’s election, especially the gubernatorial portion here in Michigan, shouldn’t be anything more than a formality this November.

After all of the Wuhan virus induced fear mongering has been exposed for the charade in which it truly was, destroying our economy & disrupting the lives of most Americans, Team-d has nothing to run with.

However, if the Republican kakistocracy has its way, it looks like they will be pulling the same stupid trick they used in 2018 in order to get Gretchen Whitmer re-elected again in 2022!

How you may ask?

If there was any doubt as to whether or not an education actually means being intelligent.

This post is going to be a little bit of what happened to me yesterday (and I’m pretty sure that some of you will be able to relate to it) and a little bit from my inbox.

I finally had a chance to spend some time with my friends over the weekend whom I haven’t seen in a while due to the unknown virus from unspecified origin ™. To put it very, mildly things didn’t go very smoothly.

These are friends (and they still are) that I’ve had going back several decades now. We don’t see eye-to-eye on all things politically. Despite that, we still got along over all that time and doing things that friends normally do for one another like helping each other out here and there and attending each other’s family events.

That ended about two years ago when they went into pretty much full lockdown mode, not wanting to have anything to do with anyone. Until last weekend, any attempts to meet earlier have crashed and burned when they would only agree to meet if certain ”precautions” were taken (mask wearing, “vaccine” status, meeting only in medically “safe” parts of the state, etc.).

I’m not 100% sure of what had changed.

Quite honestly, I didn’t care.

They were still my friends and I was still interested in meeting with them after they had finally agreed to drop their ludicrous conditions.

As sad as that is for them, how they choose to live their own lives is their concern. I had been living my life as close to normal as I could without succumbing to the fear and paranoia created by the propaganda promulgated by the government.

Speaking of which…

What???

I commented last week regarding President Trump’s visit to Washington last week.

Obviously, the legacy media wasn’t going to provide the most glowing coverage of his speech (For the record: They did not).

Oh sure, they had a presence there. Hanging on his every word (along with those speaking there as well). Waiting for that one moment they can glom onto so that they can rebroadcast it as a snippet during the evening news as proof-positive their gaslighting was justified.

Why they consistently fail to display the same level of journalistic integrity when it came to covering “the most popular president in history” ™…well, I’ll leave that up to you.

See the latest example below:

Allow me to go into some of what they didn’t report about, and what some of the rationale is behind it.

Just one more won’t hurt.

I just wanted to dove-tail on an earlier post made by Jason regarding SB-653 to institute a museum tax on Southeastern Michigan.

Well, not ALL of Southeastern Michigan.

Even the backers of this heaping, steaming pile of legislative waste sponsored by the entire Michigan Senate democrat caucus realized that well is running dry, so they were going to focus on the easier marks in Oakland & Wayne Counties instead.

No, I’m not kidding.

They didn’t call them easy marks directly, per se (that would’ve been too obvious), but they did spell out their plan when they went before the Michigan Senate Committee last December to push for this little shakedown.

Check it out for yourself, it’s a short video cued up to the best part. OABTW, be sure to check it out at the 5:23 mark regarding the “Time sensitivity with the bill”

 

So, what insulting here?

Oh, the fact that not only did four “republicans”, namely Sen. Ken Horn, Sen. Curt VanderWall, Sen. Kim LaSata, Sen. Mark Huizenga, voted to move this bill out of committee, instead of letting it die a slow death, but they voted to have it take immediate effect!

Now, why would a “republican” from Frankenmuth vote to promote a tax hike in Oakland & Wayne Counties?

Better yet, where is that same zeal shown in the video to let Taxpayers know how that money is being spent?

Or better yet, to allow communities to opt out of this grift?

Stay tuned…
