Michigan

Will it Bring Back Michael Lee Smith?

Sorry, dear, go wash your coochee.

Rebecca Smith, 44, who’s serving at least 25 years at the Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility in Pittsfield Township for a 2010 murder conviction, filed a class-action lawsuit this week against the Michigan Department of Corrections, along with other unnamed inmates.

As if Gretchen’s threat of a government shutdown if gas taxes aren’t raised in total to 89¢ per gallon is not enough… More bullshit for us taxpayers to navigate and pay for.

Here’s the part that pisses me off.

Berkley, Michigan, in December 2002 and the body of Michael Lee Smith was found dumped in a ditch, he’d been shot twice and was wearing just a t-shirt and his wedding ring.

Detectives soon worked out that he’d been killed elsewhere and some family members told police he may have boarded a bus and headed out of town.

However, eventually the evidence led much closer to home and to his wife 32-year-old Rebecca Maureen Smith, who was arrested for his murder. She was eventually found guilty of second-degree murder and sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison.

Oh, please, please, please pick me as a jurist for the itchy scratchy class action lawsuit brought on by the murderer of her own husband.

I promise to remain impartial.

Today’s Edition of: You Failed Parenting

It’s sad to witness what an effeminate society our nation has deteriorated into, nevertheless, presenting Exhibit A.

For a traffic stop?🤦‍♂️ Watching such things, which are common events today, I struggle to relate with it as being reality. In my youth we were raised to be respectful not only to police officers but, also our elders. Perhaps, today that’s why garbage like this happens. Imagine if the officer said to the precious snowflake, “here’s your ticket, you f****** a******.”?

Anyhoo, even more cringeworthy, on to Exhibit B

Damn Good Thing Eddie Duggan was on Gretchen Whitmer’s Transition Team Otherwise Dana Nessel Would be Placed in a bad Position

Oh shit, is that title right? No, it’s not. And I thank Charlie LeDuff (listen to connect the dots there), the folks over at Deadline Detroit, and Bankhole, for keeping this alive.

Peon scapegoats? After the Rick Snyder/Brian Calley Detroit bailout?

If the feds don’t smash this Ed McNamara politburo machine down, then there’s no point in building a wall. Not for Michigan families, anyway.

The New Stasi

Michigan's new thought police effort violates the 1st and 14th Amendments according to lawsuit by AFLC

Some of Michigan’s new administration’s nonsense goes beyond ‘virtue signalling’ or shaming.

We’ve had a few minutes for it to settle in.  But the bottom line is that Michigan’s newest Attorney General Dana Nessel is clearly using the power of the state to persecute those who would disagree with her worldview.  To the level legally possible, she is using public monies to pressure those who have something to say to either shut up or be pilloried in the court of public opinion.

And this publicly funded defamation, riding under the guise of fighting ‘hate speech’ is being done indiscriminately, and lazily.  Nessel’s new thought police unit is using a map to target, and developed by the SPLC, a private, ideologically driven legal services cult that frequently identifies churches or family organizations as hate groups.

One of those groups is having none of it.

In a lawsuit naming (the new hate crimes unit) DANA NESSEL, and AGUSTIN V. ARBULU (Michigan dept of civil rights director), the American Freedom Law Center has charged that Nessel has officially sanctioned the SPLC’s opinions as those of the state, putting groups like the AFLC officially under the umbrella of hate as described by a private entity.  Officially sanctioning the partisan opinions with the use of taxpayer dollars and the authority of the office to punish free speech and educational activities engaged in by the AFLC.

Sunday Sermon – Render Unto Caesar

Who owns the vineyard.

Luke 20:1-24

One of the questions I get, as a pastor, is how I go about writing a sermon. For me, it begins with a review of the scriptures we have been given for the week. I think all of you know that we are a tradition that uses the common lectionary, which is a three year cycle of readings, that includes an Old Testament reading, a Psalm, a New Testament Reading and a Gospel reading. I start by searching for one of the readings that might have a relevant message within in it.

When I read through the Gospel lesson, however, which was only verses 9-20, I was a little confused because the parable by itself made no sense at all. So, I pulled out one of my bibles and began reading from the beginning of the chapter and continued on a few verses beyond the parable. This is what I just read to you, and when I had the context of the situation it made much more sense to me. It was then that I could see that Jesus was begging the question, “who owns the vineyard?”

The chief priests, the scribes and the elders knew they had been bested by this question so they plotted further to trip Jesus up. So they send spies who pose the question of taxes. I am going to actually begin with that question, because it offers us a little context of the day.

The Jews of Jesus’ day were vexed at living under a foreign, pagan government, whose rule was enforced by an army of occupation. The Jews paid a land tax, an income tax, a poll tax, an import tax, and a tax on grain, wine, and oil. We may think we are heavily taxed today, but things were far worse in first century Israel. Well that is unless, of course, our current governor gets her way.

Editorial: News flash – vetting who enters your country prevents outbreaks

The ignorance is glaring.

Maybe this is what it’s going to take to wake up parents who’ve decided they know better than their doctors. The quickly spreading measles outbreak in Oakland County is needless. Infectious diseases once thought eradicated in the U.S. are roaring back as growing numbers of children aren’t getting shots.

Translation.

Maybe this is what it’s going to takes to wake up heritage Americans who’ve become comfortably complacent with their elected representatives in government. The quickly spreading measles outbreak in Oakland County and across this nation is needless. Infectious diseases once thought and were eradicated in the U.S. are roaring back as growing numbers of third-worlders and anchor baby children are invading our borders.

There it is- ever since Reagan singed off on the Simpson-Mazzoli Act amnesty baitpile, circa November 6, 1986.

Sure son, you’re Talcum X

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Meet, Robert Dale Truax Jr.

Truax was charged with creating a disturbance in a public place. He pleaded guilty Thursday to the misdemeanor charge, which is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Truax, who says he is unemployed, returns to court for sentencing next month.

Rest of this moron’s story here

Gee, can’t imagine why he’s unemployed….

Their parents failed them, and being very generous using it in the sense of a plural. At age 20, and still doing childish ‘muh feelz’ based garbage like that in public, then record yourself doing it – one can tell there wasn’t a male present in the household.

Energy so Clean it can be Seen and Smelled Miles Away

Meet Exelon, not sure if it’s Harvest I or, Harvest II, but it is wind turbine #17.

Said it before but, let’s revisit the wind scam again from the blog Watts Up With That?, If Solar And Wind Are So Cheap, Why Are They Making Electricity So Expensive?

Hirth predicted that the economic value of wind would decline 40% once it reached 30% of electricity, and that the value of solar would drop by 50% when it reached 15% of electricity.EP

In 2017, the share of electricity coming from wind and solar was 53 percent in Denmark, 26 percent in Germany, and 23 percent in California. Denmark and Germany have the first and second most expensive electricity in Europe.

By reporting on the declining costs of solar panels and wind turbines but not on how they increase electricity prices, journalists are — intentionally or unintentionally — misleading policymakers and the public about those two technologies.

The Los Angeles Times last year reported that California’s electricity prices were rising, but failed to connect the price rise to renewables, provoking a sharp rebuttal from UC Berkeley economist James Bushnell.

Recall what the Recucklican Majority passed during lame duck 2016?
