It was his courage to stand up against the formerly unimaginable wanton persecution by state agencies like the (feral) DNR and the AG’s office. IT was the support of people who were aware of what was going on that allowed him to survive, and cause the Attorney General’s office to fold under the weight of a huge, easily recognizable, mistake. It was his willingness to suffer the loss of business as the state threatened his customers, and cut off his sole income.
And all throughout this process other farms were shut down and forced to slaughter their livelihoods because they had no means to fight ‘city hall.’
There is enough going on that should make folks wonder whether our government is operating legally and under the framework it is supposed to be operating under.
To clear things up, KrisAnne Hall is sharing her wealth of knowledge with the curious and concerned in Michigan in a series of can’t miss seminars. (Scheduled appearances to the right and below) There are few people who understand the United States Constitution better than KrisAnne Hall. From her site bio:
KrisAnne Hall is an attorney and former prosecutor, fired after teaching the Constitution to TEA Party groups – she would not sacrifice liberty for a paycheck. She is a disabled veteran of the US Army, a Russian linguist, a mother, a pastor’s wife and a patriot. She now travels the country and teaches the Constitution and the history that gave us our founding documents.
KrisAnne Hall does not just teach the Constitution, she lays the foundations that show how reliable and relevant our founding documents are today.
She presents the “genealogy” of the Constitution – the 700 year history and five foundational documents that are the very roots of American Liberty.
One cannot properly understand or interpret the Constitution without a firm grasp of its very foundation.

The flyer to the right is about the Traverse City event. The others are below.
It took a little time for it to sink in, but Michigan’s legislature may have made the same mistake with ATT, that was made with BCBS.
Consider the decades of [government enforced] monopoly protections and the ability to hang their lines exclusively prior to deregulation. A compact that allowed ATT to profit heavily through its stand alone status, was then modified to ATT’s desires during the breakup of the bell system in 1974. Also consider the effects on small rural operators that rely on ATT for service access.
SB789, sponsored by Mike Green, would make numerous positive changes to the statutes concerned with concealed pistol licensure. This would include such things as:
Eliminate the county gun boards – requirements verification shifts to Michigan State Police
Count Clerk becomes the licensing authority
Remove the requirement to provide two references
Reduce the application fee $15 from $105 to $90
100% of court costs and attorney fees to the appellant if a denial gets overturned
Shorten and cement the timeframe for a go/no-go in regards to the application
NO WHERE does it remove the fact that the licenses shall be issued assuming the applicant passes the more or less objectively defined standards in 28.425b. In fact, the striking of 28.425b(7)(n) (shown below) further solidifies the the shall-issue aspect:
So what does a government do when it lacks popular support for raising taxes?
It provides more basis for support by allowing all the bad things those taxes would supposedly end, to happen. From the Detroit News:
Deteriorating road conditions have “gotten a lot more attention in Lansing” than other issues in recent weeks as this year’s harsh winter winds down and pavement cracks and holes begin forming, said Kirk Steudle, director of the Michigan Department of Transportation.
“I think, finally, they’re realizing what we told them is going to happen is actually going to happen,” Steudle said Wednesday at a conference of county road commission leaders.
The great big “I told you so” is coming out in an effort to raise taxes and license fees, rather than keep existing road generated monies in the roads. You were warned, and the holes in the roads will serve their intended purpose of proving you need to pay more.
