Cronyism

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

As If On Cue

Rush correctly reveals connections with "Main Street" Republicans and the left's operatives.

We see some of the relationships that have developed, explaining how self professed Republicans can stray so far from principles for no other reason than maintaining power.

As alluded to in the article previous to this, it takes a special kind of donkey to carry the water for the Democrat party into the Republican camp. Rush’s update this morning struck a serious note of truth; especially given some of the the operatives here in Michigan.

Indeed, the “Main Street” “Republicans” Are neither.

Bankrupt – The Movie

Detroit.

Cronyism, corruption, bailouts, favored status, confiscation through eminent domain, picking winners and losers.  Sound familiar?

This documentary premiered yesterday in Washington DC, and offers some historic perspective to the decline of Detroit.

Perhaps even, an explanation (a warning) of what is to come next, as long as we allow our governments to engage in corporatism; a way in which our taxpayers dollars are funneled into the pockets of special interests  and how corruption has abused Detroit, providing little benefit to those paying the bills. At one point Thomas LaDuke makes a great point about not questioning “people’s heart or motives,” but his frustration of how city residents don’t actually see how the city has been run.

Now why might this be?

Something interesting to note with battleground state data that has been released a short while ago.

Gallup: January 2-December 29, 2014

Obama Approval ratings in Senate Battleground States (this is the YEARLY average, the President’s current numbers are actually lower in EACH of these states).

  • Alaska: 33.5%
  • Arkansas: 34.9%
  • Colorado: %42.3
  • Georgia: 45.4%
  • Iowa: 42.5%
  • Kentucky: 35.1%
  • Louisiana: 40%
  • Michigan: 47.7%
  • Montana: 33.1%
  • New Hampshire: 44.6%
  • North Carolina: 43%
  • Oregon: 45.4%
  • South Dakota: 31.7%
  • Virginia: 46.4%
  • West Virginia: 25.1%

The current numbers may be lower, but I see one particular thing that makes sense.

You have to love Michigan’s push for medicaid expansion, and ceding to the Obamacare plan along side other progressive Obama ‘likes’ such as common core, A21, and transportation schemes. The highest appreciation for Obama, coming from the state that is controlled by Republicans.

Because Republicans manage those failed progressive schemes so much better than the Democrats.

A Nation Of Takers – Divertere?

The worst part of Rick Snyder’s MASSIVE expansion of the MEDC, and the plans in the works for the rewarding of Michigan business to resettle in Detroit, is that the money comes from elsewhere.

Central planning under ANY pretty name is STILL central planning.

 

This video by AEI is entertaining, and the messaging is spot on.  Any 8 year old could understand, but will our legislators?
