Detroit

Who Dat?

Tell Me Again Who Actually Supports Nazis?

Some in Michigan have memories that extend beyond 45 days.  Will our deceitful Governor have anything to say about protesters who genuinely embrace Hitler?  Or her lying tool Susan J. Demas?

And WE are considered the dangerous ones?

All I’ve got to say is, “WOW! What a difference 48-hours makes.”

Rather than waste my time focusing on a bunch of community agitators this weekend, I spent most of it focusing on the NASA feeds watching the SpaceX Launch yesterday.

Little did I realize how quickly an arrest over someone using fake ID (and apparently his unwillingness to follow basic commands) quickly spiraled into a series of riots which not only burned a large chunks of Minneapolis to the ground, but spread to a number of other cities across America, including several here in Michigan, resulting in at least one death (so far) and an as-yet to be determined dollar amount of property damage.

Which begs a rather obvious question regarding perceptions and politics?

{And exactly what they might be you may ask yourself? You know the drill.}

Might I suggest a nice rubber room? Be sure to bring your friends Dana & Jocelyn with you.

Talk about disconnect!

Gov. Witless demonstrates (yet, again) how so out of touch she is with her despotic “leadership” method.

It goes a long way towards explaining much of what is in the media over the last few days.

I mean, it’s only money, right?

Yesterday the City of Detroit announced that it is closing the Huwan virus “overflow” facility at the recently converted Cobo Hall (aka TCF Center).

The facility which cared for no more than 20 patents at a time (it was designed for about 1,000), will now be held in “reserve”.

What you didn’t see in the media is the cost Detroit paid to have this conversion done.

I mean, it’s not like Detroit has money to burn.

Or, that they haven’t taken everything into account all of the variables when they made their choices (like a certain despotic governor we all know and love).

But hey, it’s only money.

Who cares where it comes from?

wink wink!

I would be far more concerned with our governor’s actions at this time, than with a bug.

They say that in building and maintaining a brand, messaging is vitally important.

The Guv didn’t stray too far from that lesson tonight.

Well, this should be good. I think?

From the inbox…

I’ve been told that the guv will be holding a statewide town hall, on Thursday, April 2nd at 7:00pm

Even though there was one last week, this is apparently the first one that will be shown here in Southeastern Michigan on every local television station.

Given her SS-orders, they will be taking questions from the public at the link I included above. No chance to attend one of these in person, even though she had the media attending in-person her others forays in front of the TV cameras.

Say, can the governor be cited for violating her own “social distancing” orders?

Will she go over and above her “emergency powers” and announce the cancellation the rest of the public school year because of Detroit?

Will she ask for an extension of her “emergency powers”…due to expire April 13th?

Will she have a plan on how to address the monumental economic damage her orders have caused Michigan’s economy (without blaming Pres. Trump)?

Tune in and find out.

It’s not as if you can go out and do anything else…

Doing something right for a change.

There was a story which a friend of mine passed along to me several years ago regarding early American History, specifically relating to government spending, which I immediately enjoyed and still remember to this day.

It focused on a conversation between one Davy Crockett and a constituent by the name of Horatio Bunce, regarding an appropriations bill in the US House of Representatives. Mr. Bunce took issue with not only the speed the appropriation was made, but why it was even made in the first place. During their conversation, he also drove that point solidly home by reminding the then campaigning Rep. Crockett:

“The people have delegated to Congress, by the Constitution, the power to do certain things. To do these, it is authorized to collect and pay moneys, and for nothing else. Everything beyond this is usurpation, and a violation of the Constitution.”

Let’s just say that Rep. Crockett had an interesting response to that situation to say the least (along with how it guided his future decisions).
So, what does a discussion nearly two centuries ago have to do with Michigan Politics today?

Vote!

One of the disturbing things that I’ve come across while taking care of a troubling computer issue this weekend (“troubled computer” in question now dealt with in a very cathartic manner), is the number of people who are not aware of the OTHER issues on the ballot on Tuesday.

In between what can literally be described as the “chicken little” mentality in the MSM regarding yet another bug going around (practice basic hygiene…problem solved), very little (if any) coverage has been given to the other issues down ballot whose supporters are hoping that you either a.) not notice, or b.) just don’t bother showing up to vote at all.

I’m going to do a quick recap on what’s at stake.

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.
