Economy

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!

Well, that certainly didn’t take very long!

After getting hit with a ton of texts in the last hour, and a few nasty e-mails to boot, I’m going to need to walk back something I wrote earlier about yesterday.

At first, I didn’t even trust my friends on this because even I thought that that was too “over-the-top” to be true.

Well, I was wrong.

I’ll explain below.

Oh, benevolent governess, will you please allow me to work?

So, by now, everyone should’ve had an opportunity to watch what passes for objective news coverage from yesterday’s rally in Lansing.
Allow me to go over what did happen, what didn’t happen, and what others would like for you to believe happened.

I even have some interesting images from the Michigan Senate Floor that didn’t quite make the “official record”.

And this is any better…why?

People thought that the Republicans might have had an epiphany last week while Michiganians were circling the Capitol Building in Lansing for a better part last Wednesday. Having 10,000 cars blocking traffic all around you and blaring their horns for most of the day does tend to draw attention, but I digress.

During a Friday News Dump, SML Mike Shirkey announced that not only was the legislature disinclined to extend Gov. Witless’ tyranny past May 1st, but that they had a plan, based upon a framework released by the White House on how this will be accomplished.

Outstanding! Now we can get Michigan back to work so that we can start fixing the colossal disaster her incredibly ridiculous “orders” have wrought upon our state.

But did anyone bother reading the fine print?

I’ve heard this line before.

End the CON

For too many decades, health care in Michigan might well have been better and cost far less!

Michigan has been CONned for far too long.

The Certificate Of Need rules in Michigan have resulted in less competition, higher health care costs, and reduced flexibility when emergency situations arise. Limiting the choice of consumers to bloated bureaucratic health care systems that have no incentive to keep costs down or protect their employees naturally.

Sorry for mistaken nation versus state numbers. Watch the video, you’ll know what I mean.

BY the way ..don’t wonder why there are layoffs.

God Bless

Operation Gridlock update

For those of you attending the Operation Gridlock Rally in Lansing today organized by the MICHIGAN CONSERVATIVE COALITION, I just wanted to pass along two items this morning.

The MCC has released a series of guidelines for today’s event (see below).

If you are leaving from Macomb County/Wayne County, Autoworkers for Trump have scheduled to meet up at the corner of 17 Mile Road and Van Dyke at 9:00am. From there, they will head out to Livonia (Stark Road between I-96 and Plymouth Road…look for the Trump signs) to link up with other participants there before heading up to Lansing.

Attendees are strongly encourages to share their experiences/video on social media from today’s rally.

The local media is still displaying a condescending attitude towards anyone who dares question the sage wisdom of Gov. Witless as she orders Michigan into ruin, even when they themselves aren’t sure on what to do.

That been said, they have promised to cover the event.

Please follow the guidelines, so that the media munches on shoe leather as they try to spin this into something that it is not.

Stay safe, everyone.

Wasn’t that YOUR job???

Senate Majority Leader Shirkey is taking to the interwebs, and here on social media, this week in order to engender support to re-open Michigan for business.

Say, didn’t they hold a session in the Michigan Senate just last Tuesday to take action on this very topic?

Can anyone tell me how that went?

Now he wants us to call Gov. Witless’ office to complain?

Did your smoke-filled backroom deal with her people not go according to plan Sen. Shirkey?

Me??? Showing actual leadership.

The Way It Should Have Been Done

Our state's Karen did it wrong.

Gretchen Whitmer has clearly been waiting for the opportunity to flex her Grrrl power.

Kurt Schlichter appropriately addresses the rise of these ‘Karens‘ recently.  His today piece hits a home run as usual (the guy bats about .880, and all of them bring in runs)  He writes:

“These mewling Mussolinis need to be slapped back, verbally if not physically, but as long as we are under this lockdown, they will not stop. They live for this, the chance to dictate to and control us, and the problem is some of them have positions of power.

..

This is not to say that the Chinese coronavirus pandemic is fake or unserious, nor that we should ignore it and pretend that it’s just another flu. It is to say that there is more going on now than a respiratory ailment. There’s an economic ailment that most of us are painfully aware of, and there is a freedom ailment, where the Karens in everyday life and in the corridors or power are taking advantage of this crisis to let their fascist flag fly.

When you have some petty official commanding Christians not to gather together in worship, that’s a line that they don’t get to cross. ..”

That line they don’t get to cross..

Truly you must read the rest, then read whatever the hell he writes every day he writes it from here on out.

April 30 ***Corrected***

Word from my sources tell me that the Michigan Senate had granted Gov. Witless’ extension to her “Emergency Powers” about two hours ago.

This has been sent over to the Michigan House where it is expected to be approved later this afternoon and then signed by the guv.

On the plus side: The extension only lasts until April 30th, when it will be “reevaluated”.

The down side: there was nothing extracted from the guv to put a muzzle on her wanton actions until that date.

Mandatory statewide lock-down? Nothing to address it.

Increased penalties for those found “ignoring” the guv’s commands? Nothing to address that one, either.

Anything else the guv’s staff can conceive to further erode our Constitutional Rights?

Ahahahahahahahahahaha!

Twenty-three days, my friends.

Stay tuned.

 

*** Going by what was sent to me earlier from my source in Lansing (the Senate’s session was unusually brief), what was passed this morning and then later in the House was SCR 24 (information now posted here).

It will not require the signature of the governor before going into effect (See MCL 30.404 Section 3 (4)).***
