Stupidity

Proving once again, that Republicans can be as moronic and ignorant as Democrats

Don’t ever let your kids or the dog drive your car.

That might be a good idea if the ‘bi-farcian’ sponsors of HB5272 have their way, anyhow. On Tuesday at 9am, the Michigan House Judiciary Committee will take up testimony on House Bill 5272, which would authorize state and local police to use un-manned “photo radar” machines to issue speeding tickets on Michigan roads. Language in the bill actually says you are presumed guilty until proven innocent:

(4) In a prosecution for a violation of this section, prima facie evidence that the vehicle described in the citation issued was operated in violation of this section, together with proof that the defendant was at the time of the violation the registered owner of the vehicle, creates a rebuttable presumption that the registered owner of the vehicle was the individual who committed the violation. The presumption is rebutted if the registered owner of the vehicle files an affidavit by regular mail with the clerk of the court that he or she was not the operator of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation or testifies in open court under oath that he or she was not the operator of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation. The presumption also is rebutted if a certified copy of a police report, showing that the vehicle had been reported to the police as stolen before the time of the alleged violation of this section, is presented before the appearance date established on the citation. For purposes of this subsection, the owner of a leased or rented vehicle shall provide the name and address of the individual to whom the vehicle was leased or rented at the time of the violation.

Those are a couple of iffy “if” statements there comrades.

Perhaps these losers: Gary Eisen (district 81) Joseph Bellino, Gregory Markkanen, David Martin, Ben Frederick, Robert Bezotte, Pat Outman, Beth Griffin, David LaGrand, Julie Brixie might get a call or a letter from their misrepresented constituents?

A Cold Winter

Mandate acceptance by Michigan's largest utilities forebodes dire circumstance.

A senior Consumers Energy official whistle blower (I will refer to him as Mr. Spark)  on the promise of anonymity tells us he is concerned that the federal mandate will hamstring emergency operations this winter.

According to Mr. Spark, 40% or more of CE employees (8600+ in Michigan ) are NOT vaccinated.  It is expected that the additional 5000 contract workers which are treated like employees, as well as 10,000 other support staff that would be covered under the mandate would have the same rate of non vaccination.  He says that Consumers energy rolled too easily with the claim that it’s hands were tied due to federal contracts, that PG&E’s mandate policy is limited to new contracts and should be the template for CE.

At this point, It is safe to assume that folks who are NOT vaccinated ..are those who do NOT wish to be vaccinated, or are waiting to see efficacy or safety issues to be resolved.  According to a recent news story, Consumers ‘official position’ is that the employees are on board with the mandate, but according to Mr Spark that is not not so.   “We are looking for as many outlets to the public to get the truth out there. Our company was interviewed by channel 3 yesterday where they said no disruption to service this winter due to this as most employee’s support the vaccine mandate. That simply is not true.”

Work Where They Appreciate You

Take this mandate and shove it ..

A Friend passed this along.

It’s a job board for those who wish to work where they can be free of the fear mongering promoted by our government.  Employees can pass along that they are hiring, and don’t require you to endanger yourself in order to put food on your table.  Prospective employees can post a resume or use the search feature to find a decent place to work.

There is even an example letter to give your boss if he/she/it is threatening you with termination over a mandate.

NO VAX MANDATE

Choosing Your Leaders?

I stumbled across a quote from a meme on FB.

I followed up, as many quotes are often mis-attributed. It was from Octavia Butler’s book “Parable Of the Talents.”  While that particular work of fiction may be good, or bad, or whatever, ..the quote is brilliance.  Some truths simply have a life of their own.

“Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears. To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool. To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be stolen. To be led by a liar is to ask to be lied to. To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery.”

Dang.

That pretty much covers everyone.

Sunday Sermon – A Defense Of Marriage

Genesis 2:18-25

Traditional marriage is under attack like never before.

People not only in America but all over the world are debating and arguing over what a marriage is and what a marriage isn’t. As Christians it doesn’t really matter what our opinions of marriage are or whether or not we think that it should be re-defined. What should matter to believers like us is what the Bible and God says about marriage.

The Bible clearly defines marriage and anyone who cares to read it for themselves will find there really are no gray areas even though some people will attempt to say that there are. Marriage is biblically defined as a holy union ordained by God to be between one man and one woman. No human being, no act of congress, nor any society created marriage. Marriage goes all the way back to Genesis. In Genesis 1:27-28 we read this: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” And in our first reading this morning we read this: So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Pay Attention – Science Happening Here

Dr. Christina Parks argues against mandates.

The logic of her arguments are unassailable.

A Proper Application Of Government Policy

Grand Traverse County to make a statement affirming Constitutional Rights in light of Covid fear pandering.

On Wednesday, the Grand Traverse County  Board of Commissioners will address in a small way, the potential for yet another round of mandates, and the pressures currently being made for the population to accept and receive as-yet unapproved and untested vaccines.

Those who oppose the effort, a resolution in support for your constitutionally protected rights, will attempt to abuse the constitution in their own way arguing for ‘general welfare’ as reasons to support mandates, lock-downs and other restrictions placed on your liberties.  Those who oppose the statement of liberty would gladly see government toss it’s constitutional limits any time fear can be applied successfully  – As it has in the past 18 months.

The resolution reads:

Whitmer VS The FBI

The tactics of the nation's 'premier law enforcement' agency ..suck.

We probably told you so at some point.

If ever there was a time to harbor a little distrust in our government, it is at this point in history. Anyone in law enforcement who encourages, or sanctions the type of actions described in this video needs to be imprisoned.

It could be argued that this is not a constitutional government anymore.
