Who Says It Won’t Happen?

A Political Star Is Born On Facebook

Need some conservative inspiration? Last May, 17-year old, Saira Blair, walked away the winner in a West Virginia Republican primary for the state legislature. If Blair wins the November election, she will become the youngest lawmaker in West Virginia history. There’s more rising stars, and for those who prowl Facebook well after the stars have risen, here is one you may have missed….

rigasAngela Rigas was born trailer-park poor in Hastings, Michigan, 39 years ago. Her mother had serious personal issues and walked out on the family when Angela was thirteen years old. “My grandmother was the only person who loved me,” Rigas said during a July 14 interview. “When she developed Alzheimer’s, I had to watch while she forgot me.”

There were two choices she could make: become a victim or become a champion. Her story speaks to spiritual deliverance, and to turning anger into a loving toughness that put her squarely on the path to becoming a voice for those who have been denied having one.

Timing Truly is Everything

Was just reading through an interesting article over at Michigan Capitol Confidential, which highlights the ongoing damaging affects that FDR’s “New Deal” has on Michigan farmers.

Agricultural Price Controls are the Pits

Michigan cherry farmers, others, affected

Ron French has a great article in Bridge Magazine looking at “the crazy economics of Michigan’s favorite pitted fruit.” The piece describes some of the federal cherry regulations that are mostly left over from the New Deal of the 1930s: For rest, CLICK HERE.

So, naturally, what nasally, lilting way of speech, crony Big Government Progressive fool is just now releasing a propaganda video on his YouTube account?

Calley Ended The MBT, So There.

Brian Calley was instrumental in ending the "stupid" business killing Michigan Business Tax

I’ll be clear, my preference for a challenge in the executive arrangement for Michigan would have been to go after the Governor directly.

However, the cost difference between a statewide gubernatorial contest versus a delegate election is significant, and Wes Nakagiri in his bid for LT Gov at convention STILL has a high hurdle to leap. Especially with MiGOP resources being used to recruit ‘establishment-GOP’ loyal delegates throughout the state; with rumored bribery in some districts raising eyebrows. Some delegates might already have made up their minds whom they will support if they are selected to go to state convention. I wonder if all the delegates are even aware of easily identified history?

I wonder too, if it even matters to them.

This weekend’s Governor’s breakfast in Traverse City had all the top players present.  The guv, lt. guv, AG, SoS, and candidate Land all there.  Brian Calley was touted by the governor as the man responsible for eliminating the MBT. 

The MBT as you know, was a stupid tax.  No Doubt about it. Snyder even said so.  Right in this video:

M.I.C.E. Alert – July 14

UPDATE 07-14-14 – FACEBOOK is removing all references to this post.

I have heard about post removals, but have never seen how sneaky and underhanded the operators of face are firsthand.  Facebook CANNOT be trusted as an information outlet.

Rep. Candice Miller gets it (sort of).

I’ve indicated before that try to catch up on current events as much as I can when working.

It’s not easy, but I manage as best as I can.

I get a good chunk of it from e-mail blasts from people whom I trust. Much of it is on material that the MSM wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot poll.

The latest has to do with the continuing invasion of illegal aliens along our border and the (sort of) correct response that has been lacking as of late.

Building Dependency and Estate Confiscation with BaRick Snyderbama

This just in from the “Take a vote, not a vacation” files.

More people have enrolled in Medicaid’s expansion in less than four months than were expected to sign up in the entire first year of the program, the Snyder administration announced Thursday.

The expansion, called the Healthy Michigan Plan [click HERE], opened April 1 with a first-year goal of 322,000 sign-ups. The state said it exceeded that projection Thursday with more than 323,022 residents enrolled.

The Michigan Department of Community Health estimated 477,000 Michiganians would sign up by the end of 2015. The Healthy Michigan Plan opens the federal health insurance program for the poor to all adults with incomes up to 133 percent of the poverty level, or $30,000 a year for a family of four, as allowed under the federal Affordable Care Act.

FourOdiousAssholes“We still continue to see a couple thousand (new enrollments) every week get added to the program,” Community Health spokeswoman Angela Minicuci said Thursday [Go figure, Angela]. “It’s a little bit too early to say how long it will take to reach (total expected enrollment.) We certainly will continue to see that number grow.”
….

Snyder was among a small group of Republican governors who broke with party lines to support expanding Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. He waged a bitter battle with Michigan’s Republican-controlled House and Senate to push the measure through last year.

What’s this? Karen Bouffard didn’t include the part about being forced into estate confiscation? Nah, I don’t think that would be a selling point for her propaganda.

Anyhoo, congratulations on Public Act 107 of 2013, ya bunch of Obama enabling Nerdpublicrat fools, and yes, that includes these two “conservative” frauds, too.

Buy ‘Merican!

My inbox never ceases to amaze me. I really do keep a good circle of Patriot friends. Here is a li’l something sent to me from my friend Pres, that relates directly to what Gov. Snyder has accomplished by Executive Order #2014-2, and his wants of 50,000 cheap laborers for his Big Corporate cronies.

Maybe it’s time we re-think what a proud American brand the Harley Davidson motorcycle company is. Not too long ago I told you about the man whose warranty claim was rejected by the company because he was flying an American flag on his bike. And who can forget their new addition of an all-electric motorcycle (seriously?) But those things pale in comparison to a story I just found: Harley Davidson uses the services of a company that helps them replace fairly paid American employees with cheap foreign-born workers through the H-1B visa program.

The LA Daily News tells us about Kelly Parker, a divorced mother of three, who landed her dream job at Harley Davidson in tech support. That dream turned into a nightmare when she was laid off less than a year later, replaced by an H-1B “guest worker” from India. The biggest indignation: Parker had to train her replacement before she was fired.

Quote Of The Day

The stupid, it burns

“The establishment strikes back,” said Paul Welday [narcissist fool], a GOP consultant who was congressional chief of staff for former Republican Rep. Joe Knollenberg.

Just remember folks, the above is the slime that wants a Foreclosure Shyster in CD-11, orchestrated by Democrat-lite losers who are also trying to hold up the clean end of a turd in CD-8.
