2020 Presidential Election

Republican Schutzstaffel – Reporting for duty!

Senator Shirkey and Speaker Chatfield must be so proud of themselves.

I’m not sure how long this link will last before it gets ‘scrubbed” by Facebook.

See for yourselves.

You rights don’t apply here. Where do you think you’re at? America?

Uh oh, someone was watching!

If this isn’t a huge red flag on why democrats, ESPECIALLY Gov. Witless, needs to be watched like a hawk (because the Republican Caucuses in the Michigan House & Senate certainly aren’t up to the task), I don’t know what is.

And what is it that our glorious and revered empress is up to this week?

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.

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?

Porkculus – The Revenge

Some readers may recall this term bandied about several years ago, when Congress being Congress, went on a spending spree that can be accurately compared to giving an alcoholic an open bar tab and then being shocked when not only all of the top shelf inventory is cleaned out first, but the rest of the bar as well.

Take a wild guess what happened earlier this week?
