Why is it harder for some to speak their 'conservative' principles outside of the election cycle? Why will some avoid conservative forums?
In the Republican primary, EVERYONE is a conservative.
I have done a great deal of door knocking as a candidate for the Grand Traverse County Commission. I have held my record out as one of conservatism, but when approaching the potential voter, its natural to introduce myself as a “constitutional conservative,” or “conservative Republican.” Usually, the latter is used (by habit), and I can read the face of the person I am talking with so as to determine whether they want to hear anymore.
One woman I spoke to said “Conservative? Everybody is a conservative nowadays!” She then described her potential of possibly not participating in the election process any longer. She explained her disappointment with the Republican candidates who make the claim, yet hardly stand for the values that are expressed in the platform, much less hold up to the promises they make while electioneering.
She was not the only one to express this perspective.
Sometimes it is entertaining to take a look at what the Utopians define as *logic*. Say for instance something like THIS. See that? Even “free money” and “free food” from a group of loons is not enough. Now, it’s “food deserts” to blame. Never mind the abundant supply of EBT Cards in the land of redistribution plenty Detoilet (access denied in casinos and booby bars – draconian, yes?).
So, water is a human *right*. Access is provided to all, and the burden of collecting on the debt for provided access now transcends to the pursuit of Happiness. Rewarding bad behavior only begets more bad behavior. Deadbeats loafing in an abundance of taxpayer provided hammocks still bitch and whine in the Nerdpublican’s “Grand Bailout” Detoilet.
Bottom line. Progressivism is a mental disorder. Being stupid should be painful.
Yes, I already know… That’s Rayciss!
Current Michigan Gems?
Watchdog Wire – Did Frank Foster Lie To His Constituents? Going Negative on a challenger? Mr Foster seems genuinely scared. Liars Lie.
FedUpUSA – Oh, So Free Water Is Next? Crazy. Just shows how completely dumbed down the spawn of progressivism is in Detroit, and in this state, and elsewhere.
Activist Post – Michigan Dept of Agri Forces Farmer to Dump 248 Gallons of Organic Milk and Break 1200 Free Range Eggs Food. They are throwing away FOOD. Government oversight is so beneficial is it not?

Well, this day is off to a great start. Was just reading an article about Brian Ellis pulls $800,000 out of his pocket to bankroll his smear campaign in CD-3. Do I believe Brian Ellis is a slimeball? Just look at who is in his corner – slimy bastards, all of them (yes, including RTL).
Anyone with an IQ above room temperature should be able to figure out that a vote for Ellis is a vote against what our Founding Fathers gifted us.
Here is the part that needs to be taken seriously.
Ellis said Amash’s vote explanations don’t get him off the hook for what he’s done in Congress.
“He’s got an explanation for everything, but that doesn’t mean it’s right,” Ellis said.
Do remember what Brian Ellis just stated.
Political attacks in the race have not been a one-way street.
Amash has admonished Ellis for voicing support for Gov. Rick Snyder’s addition of more than 300,000 low-income adults to the Medicaid health insurance program. The expansion is being paid for by Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
“He supports Obamacare,” Amash said. “Medicaid expansion is a major part of Obamacare. … If you don’t support Obamacare, you shouldn’t support Medicaid expansion.”
Amen, Justin! Spot-on assessment. So, why this, and this? Your *pal* Lt. Governerd Brian Puss-cake cast the vote for Medicaid expansion. C’mon kid, yes you are a kid in my book, Justin – never do any favors for enemies.
OK, now here it comes…
Ellis said he supports repeal of the health insurance law, but understands the reasoning of Snyder and the Republican state legislators when they agreed to accept billions in federal aid for expanding the program.
“I thought it was a very tough call and I have faith in our elected leaders,” Ellis said. “They tried to do the best they could.”
And, there you go CD-3. “He’s got an explanation for everything, but that doesn’t mean it’s right”. Brian Ellis can’t even get out of his own way without being crushed by his own cognitive dissonance.
What to expect? Expect to eat Brian’s words if dumb enough to send him to Weeper Boehner’s D.C. Also, expect to keep eating Brian’s words until y’all in CD-3 can gather up the coin to outspend his nasty Democrat-lite pandering ass if actually dumb enough to send him there instead of Amash. Ellis has career incumbent written all over him, and the DC-GOP long-knives will make damn sure Ellis has a cash warchest to protect the big spending “Get your ass in line” status quo.
Ps. for those old enough to recognize the origins to the title of this post, hit the button.
You read that right. Henry Paulson, the same creep that stole $700 million to nationalize the banksters based upon his 3 page *document* that is TARP (Remember that, TEA folks?), is now the Nerd’s new best friend.
Gov. Rick Snyder and former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson Jr. teamed up Monday to emphasize why Michigan should continue to forge closer economic ties to China, in a panel discussion hosted by the Detroit Economic Club.
China is one of the United States’ biggest trading partners, but both men emphasized that its economy will soon change from one of cheap labor, exports and government investment to one where a growing middle-class shifts to a consumption economy, leaving China with money to invest overseas. Snyder has made direct foreign investment in Michigan one of his priorities for building the state economy.
“Globalization is only going to continue,” Snyder said. “Historically, China was an exporter but they’re looking at consumption now.”
Yes, it’s a dog eat dog world out there so, Boobus Michiganderus, crony capitalists like Snyder say, “get on your MilkBone underwear.”
Calling China a potential “consumption engine,” Paulson noted, “We’re going to want some of our dollars to come back and be invested here.”
Well, at least this time the two scammers are not bullshitting you. Eventually, the Chicoms will be the consumers, and the cheap labor will be you, Boobus Americanus. Actually, it’s happening now where the Chicoms are attempting to set up their own colonies on U.S. soil, and why not? Aging orientals with 5 large in their pocket for U.S. citizenships have figured out a way to escape their gender selective abortion Communist government for a more appealing Socialist-lite Medicare and MEDC provided hammock ride to the Great Dirt Nap.
For that matter, who is it that said that if it weren’t for their business with the gender selective baby aborting Chicoms, “If we hadn’t reached out we’d be one-tenth of the size we are today”? If you answered The Wooden Shoe Mafia, you were correct. Thus enters, Doug DeVos. Naturally, that means those Canadians need a make-work union labor *project* that connects their Port in Halifax, so the Chicoms can import what they manufacture to America, and receive their food supplies and other natural resources like coal (do you like this article, Boobus Americanus?), which is for the most part paying the interest on our .FEDGOV borrowing.
Oh! And, lisping Prince William II, wants the hidden agenda of the DRIC bridge – new tunnels. Yes, railcars. No, those as of April 30, 2014 homely “Kinetic” boxes won’t be heading to the ChiComs. Besides, folks like Gary Peters, and the Nerd are fond of trains. That’s a fact, Jack.
Snyder is heading back to China in the fall for another trade mission. He has made a trip there every year since elected.
The Tea Party, Dave Agema, and their Radical Agenda!
DAVE AGEMA PERSONA NON GRATA IN MIGOP???
2008 was a dismal year for the MIGOP. Election wins were far and few between. Another 2 years of Granholm and Democrat rule were what we had to look forward to. Many remember the GOP offices manned (if at all) by skeleton crews, with very few volunteers showing up.
Then came 2010 and the rise of the Tea Party. Offices were Packed with excited volunteers. (I can remember tables of volunteers being asked to use their own cell phone for calls, as all the other phones were in use.) A constant flow of people streamed in for Literature and signs to distribute. Tea parties sponsored rallies, forums, and debates, statewide, inviting all the republican candidates to attend. Some of these events attracted tens of thousands of people.
Media attention was at an all time high. The result was a Grand slam in MI, SUPER majorities in both houses, and a new republican Governor Rick Snyder. The pattern was repeated nationwide.
It’s good to see the folks over at Michigan Capitol Confidential are finally addressing this.
Click on the linked headline above. Read Mr. Gantert’s article. Let that sink in, Boobus Michiganderus. You are getting the government in Lansing that you voted for, and getting it good and hard. Snyder started from the path paved by Mike Bishop’s State Income Tax Increase in 2007 (how anyone could even considers sending this to an already dysfunctional D.C. is amazing), of which, Lansing’s current Republican Majority violated it’s roll down back to 3.9%, then doubled down on Democrat-lite with a 5% pension confiscation, which has netted Lansing results of a minimum 10+ Billion leaving the state. Yes, the reason a particular RightMi.com Tag is born.
Do I think J-man is accurate in his assessment that folks are overwhelmed by Snyder’s relentless and completely repulsive Democrat-lite agenda? Damn right I believe there’s a good majority of us who are suffering burnout. I know that I’m sure as Hell tired of Slick Rick, his Chicago Democrat *adviser*, and his Obama-love for Growing Dependency, baiting illegal alien gatecrashers (Let this sink in), and fellating Bedouin moon pagans (they’re “national treasures,” don’tchya know?). Enjoying Snyder’s vision of us on the Home Team sent to the back of the bus? No, didn’t think you did. Problem is that most folks are busy just trying to raise their families, get in a few smiles and laughs along the journey of Life 101, and don’t have the time to bird dog the Ruling Class on both sides of the alleged different sides of the political aisle in this state. Nevertheless, what folks elected to Lansing in 2010, is an Executive Office that is ran by a crony capitalist agenda of Big Government solutions, a corporate snake that you were warned about.
As I’ve stated before, if it weren’t for Ruth Johnson, I’d stay home in November. That also applies to Pettallia, and Stamas. Mrs. Terri Hibma? Forgettaboutit. Not interested in her dimwit opinions and blatant pandering to perversion, either.
