Imaging that. And, CPA Snyder’s $250,000/year numbers guru John Nixon, bails out of Michigan a year ago, too? Go figure.
Snyder enlisted the help of Detroit attorney George Scott Romney, the brother of 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, in bringing Nixon to Michigan, because Romney shared ties to Utah and the Mormon faith.
“They’re just a wonderful family,” Romney said of Nixon, who along with his wife, DeAnn, has six children between the ages of 4 and 17.
“I was disappointed” to hear Nixon was leaving, Romney said, but “I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for him.”
Leaving is “a wonderful opportunity”? That’s an understatement. Then again, ‘ol Elder “Arithmetic” Romney ain’t never been too sharp with numbers, has he?
Hmmm, now where have we seen these money grab pay-to-play schemes before? Oh! That’s right, Wayne County. And that worked out just swell, yes?
I’ve long said that Ross Jones, is the only reporter in Michigan, worth following. Unfortunately, there’s a new Senate Marshal in Lansing (heavy on the marsh part), and he goes by the nickname of, Sen. Arlan Randy Ficano.
Macomb County sez, “we loves us some “Pufferfish“.”
County GOP chairwoman Linda Torp says in a statement that her party is “ honored that one of the presidential front-runners … has chosen Macomb County for one of his first visits to Michigan as he considers a run for the nomination.
U.S. Rep. Candice Miller [Oink, oink], R-Harrison Township, and Secretary of State Ruth Johnson [busy schedule, huh?] are also scheduled to attend.
Christie recently delivered speeches in Illinois and in Iowa, another early state in the presidential nominating process.
Christie came to Michigan a few times last year to campaign for Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and other state Republicans. His expected March visit follows another potential Republican presidential candidate to visit Michigan. Jeb Bush spoke to the Detroit Economic Club on Feb. 5, where he outlined his vision for a “right to rise society.”
Classic “vote No” television ad as the first salvo in the epic failure that will be Proposal 15-1
The original ‘grubering’ in Washington merely required the power hungry congress critters to stick the fork in the voters. In this new catastrophic mess, it requires full participation in the self flagellation.
Indeed, effective ads need to mock the stupidity that are presented in the proposals appropriately.
Executive Action amnesty in the DHS spending bill is the issue? Gee, look who in Michigan mocks that, and has many Rea$on$ to. C’mon, folks. None of this is anything new. Sure, it’s nice to hear Rep. Issa’s lofty platitudes he talks but, “they’re the jobs that are sometimes undermined by companies just trying to shave the edges”? What utter nonsense. Remember, Buy ‘Merican!, right? Everyone with an above room temperature IQ understands the game while others parrot the *bipartisan* line. Matter of fact, one of the biggest H1-B lies is the 65,000 cap needs to be expanded when foreign nationals with a Master’s degree or higher is exempt, as well is the O-1 visa = unlimited.
Lansing politicos promoting more racial divisiveness, and now?
Due to a groundswell of race related denial of service, access restrictions and increasing public pressure, lawmakers are going to act!
Recognizing the tongue planted firmly in cheek above, we can only speculate the reasons that State Senator Rick Jones (R) Might be the primary sponsor for such an effort as Senate Bill 90,“A bill to create an African-American affairs commission, an office of African-American affairs,” etc.. Maybe there is a trade off for something he wants, a job for a dear friend, or simple ‘white guilt?’ Perhaps he is lost in a time warp?
I mean really, doesn’t he know that ‘ghey’ is the new ‘black?’
The reality is that the last thing Michigan needs is another way to blow taxpayer resources by promoting the divisive cataloging of its citizens by race. At some point full equality means equal blindness by lawmakers and bureaucrats with regard to how public resources are used and allocated. It also demands an equal responsibility for each individual to stand on his own merit for an equal treatment under the law.
And we cannot understand why Jones and several other GOP sponsors would AGAIN want to grow government. We get the view of the Democrat sponsors, as race baiting and divisive pandering is an established platform of their party, but from the party which believes “that the best government is that which governs least?” It makes no sense to add a new department that requires new office space, full time administrative staff, and all for the express purpose of continuing to validate the absurd idea that any one racial population still needs special dispensation from the government.
The other is if it’s one who is in the big spending Democratic Party calling for tax hikes and bogus *transportation* funding, AG Schuette will fake having a pair in the name of rah-rah go Team R nonsense. However, if it’s AG Schuette’s teammates who call for a $2,000,000,000 constitutional amendment tax hike and bogus *transportation* funding? Nope. Not so much as a peep. I know, old story. Constitution schmonstitution. It’s all just doubleplusgood speak.
“I will not tolerate companies that seek to take advantage of Michigan citizens and get rich on the backs of hard-working entrepreneurs through trickery and deception,” Schuette said in a statement.
Money quote? “Murray [a JournoList-esque hack] replied that he could not respond by this report’s deadline. Calley’s office has yet to respond.”
allah Shazam! Don’t hold your breath, Mr. Spencer, as Lt. Lapdog appears preoccupied with a family *matter*. And, as J-man, in comments, points out another issue surrounding the Republican Party’s big spending, nanny statist, corporate Nerd, well, with regard to Ruth Johnson, any future political aspirations she may have had are toast.
