Michigan

In for a Penny in for a Pounding

So, that’s that, eh?

Was nothing but a wannabe smokescreen, anyway. When it comes to the GOP in Michigan, it is “Two Heads – Same Snake” ruled over by the Magic Underpants legacy who gave us the most regressive government policy of all-time: the State Income Tax. Fact.

Congratulations, Boobus Michiganderus. You’re getting the government you deserve – good and hard.

Speaker Race Tops Today

An opportunity to STOP the Obama agenda - Will we get it?

FireBoehnerMost the regulars here would love nothing more that to see a second round of voting for the US House Speaker’s race.

Its something that has not apparently happened since 1923, and would be a significant blow to the Obama agenda. Will Boehner hang on to the necessary number of votes?  Will the 29 needed defections in the Republican caucus happen?

We can only pray that it does.  Two more years of blindly allowing the president to use the constitution as his personal wet wipe is not what this country needs.  Blindly allowing the expansion of the the Obama Bureaucracy is hardly a way to return this nation to its former glory.  And running up the debt on our children, their children, and a few more generations to follow, is bad government plain and simple.

We urge our Michigan Republican delegation to consider the consequences of letting the WORST PRESIDENT EVER continue to rot this country through emperor’s decree.

Remind them  (numbers below the fold) THIS MORNING!

Gillman For Speaker

Toss Boehner. Its time to put some constitutional perspective back into play.

I’m eligible, and have a whole day in which to reach our congressmen.

“The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.”
— U.S. Constitution, Article I, section 2, clause 5

Pass it along.

Sign-speaker

We need to shave off very FEW votes.  I am in the running. So..

The RightMi.Com Year In Review

A few items of note from each month in the year 2014.

RightMi.com was the back up site for RightMichigan.com in the event something happened to the WWII servers hosting the original site.

So-far

We started off in January fighting for a good man and ultimately getting booted for saying enough is enough from those who profess to be conservative, but cannot be counted on when it matters.  We argued that some GOP leaders have their priorities off, and when Betsy DeVos attacked one of the most stalwart and responsible Republicans in the state, we said not-no-fast.

Setting The Wrong Table

Of course that resulted in the move from the old site to the new.   Much of January was spent reminding people of the values Republicans are supposed to hold and why attacking our most conservative committeeman was maybe not such a good idea.  RighMi.com as a destination became a reality.  Unapologetic, informed, and collaborative; Michigan’s conservative blogging has a home.

OH, and as for the subject of the misplaced attacks?

He is just fine and dandy

February found Michigan legislators beginning the debate for a minimum wage increase, bailing out the big D, and local governments pandering to a dangerous lifestyle..

Don’t Laugh

Yes, the mental deficit above is *exploring* a run for Party chair. Well, so far in Metro Detroit, it’s that, a few retreads mentioned, and a gaggle of fools determined to make Michigan irrelevant in 2016, by foisting the nepotism legacy of the Romney and Rakolta clan upon us Conservatives because, you know, within the state Party apparatchik’s addlebrained world of playing up to gender politics… #CrackAddiction.

Good luck with that “brand name“.

Four Months of Paid Vacation

Yeah, it’s a Thin Blue Line, alright.

An investigation of an Oakland County police chief for suspected political sign theft last July has been completed and turned over to the Michigan attorney general’s office to review for possible charges.

shiny-badgesThe Michigan State Police took over the investigation of Waterford Township Police Chief Daniel McCaw in September after the Oakland County Sheriff‘s Office recused itself from looking into allegations because of law enforcement associations with McCaw. McCaw has been on paid administrative leave since September.
…..

McCaw was stopped and questioned in July when an officer spotted him late at night removing signs from a vacant gas station lot. McCaw, who was in civilian clothes at the time and in an unmarked vehicle, told the officer he had permission to remove the signs asking township voters to vote “no” on new millages. The officer never wrote up the incident and allowed McCaw to drive away.

McCaw has told others he was removing signs that had been placed too close to the roadway. The owner of some of the removed signs, Kyle McGrath, complained to township officials other non-millage signs in the same location were left undisturbed.

A public safety millage renewal on the ballot which would have affected McCaw’s force was subsequently passed by voters.

Should be a slam-dunk conviction for our AG with aspirations, yes? Don’t bank on it. For the majority Party holding the lever of power in every branch of Lansing, well, they let the cat out of the bag on their beloved public sector union friends. Yes, their friends – not ours.

Fact.

Want to see what a Michigan republican party-backed $195-million Taxpayer funded bailout of Detroit gets you?

Just to be on the level, I’m not going to bring back stories about grossly overpaid art museum CEO’s and their boards, not-so secret loans to art museum CEO’s, and art millage scams promoted against Tri-County Taxpayers.

Feel free to use that search window in the upper-right corner if you’re inclined to read more about it.

No, I’m going to talk about what the good people in the Snyder/Calley/Weiser/et al republican machine are in effect helping to promote with your own hard-earned tax dollars.

Just a quick warning to those who wish to continue: The remainder of this post does contain some graphic and disturbing descriptions.

Consider yourselves warned!
