“The City Council on Tuesday unanimously voted to strengthen licensing requirements for self-service gas stations in the city and requires strategically placed indoor and outdoor digital surveillance cameras in the wake of a brutal beating on the city’s east side last week.”
“Licensing Requirements” are being used as an excuse to provide public policing tools (remember, police are there AFTER the events) on the back of the gas station owners.
LANSING. In an effort to practice and test its emergency mobilization capabilities, the Michigan State Police (MSP) is participating in a simulated exercise tomorrow; Saturday, April 5, 2014.
The simulated preparedness exercise will test the department’s response to an Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) request for police officers to assist the State of Indiana with recovery operations in the aftermath of a simulated earthquake. The scenario will require the mobilization of 60 MSP personnel from across the state to the Lansing area. ..
Please note: This is not a media event but rather an advisory to the media to help prevent any public concern during the activities of this simulated exercise.
Let me start off by saying that sometimes I get feedback on what I write. Usually e-mail. Sometimes face-to-face. Last night/this morning it was different…someone actually called me. I didn’t recognize the number at first, but later found found out afterwards it was through a mutual friend.
I got some complements on what I wrote, but they wanted to know why I stopped where I did.
Truth be told, I was on the Eastside for most of that day. I didn’t have enough time for a more thorough follow-up because of my own schedule.
I spoke to them about what was missing and asked them to forward me some links for verification.
It’s amazing what gets “omitted” in a product put out by “professional” journalists. In this case, The Detroit Free Press’ own Niraj Warikoo.
It never gets tiring going after the PC crowd on the radio, online or in the rare instance face-to-face.
But what really sets me off is when they try to bastardize the meaning of the documents that they cite in an pathetic attempt to win an argument.
Dateline: Dearborn, Michigan
On Friday, a parent in Dearborn Public Schools blew a gasket when his children brought home a flyer from the local elementary promoting “Eggstravaganza!” at the Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn.
Basically, the flyer for the April 12th event (not actually held on Easter), invited people to participate in egg hunt, relay race and egg toss (not actually tenets of the religious holiday of Easter). They were asked to RSVP ifthey wanted to attend along with an image of a Easter Eggs and a bunny (not actual symbols of the religious holiday of Easter).
Today’s KrisAnne Hall presentation in front of 100 plus in Traverse City was nothing short of eye opening.
Hall offered to a ‘Constitutional Conservative Republican’ Senate leader in Florida, the way in which the state could ‘nullify’ provisions of the healthcare law. The Senate leader Don Gaetz replied in an email to Hall with a disturbing note:
“After sending Senator Don Gaetz my letter explaining the positions of James Madison, Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton on State Sovereignty, Mr. Gaetz says that citizens who agree with the writer of the Declaration of Independence should be summarily shot and hanged.”
Summing up the attitude that makes up a greater part of the leadership in the country.
While I digest all of the class information, file away the epiphanies, and prepare for the next round of historical fact based blogging observations, It occurs to me that other Michigan folks might appreciate a heads up of what to expect. First off, you might THINK you know the constitution, and you might even know of the documents that were ‘plagiarized,’ to form the basis of the constitution, but her presentation will fill in where it matters.
When placing a nut on a bolt, there is an axiomatic reality that must be observed; two nuts don’t go together, and likewise neither will two bolts.
Its not a function of discrimination, or the hating of the thought that no two similar pieces of hardware unite, but rather a simple fact that bolts require a nut to function properly, and conversely the nut needs a bolt. The hardware is designed to mate and perform a function. And because bolt on bolt action doesn’t work, doesn’t mean that those same Bolts cannot find a matching Nut.
Nut on Bolt is still perfectly legal and allowed by design.
Not a whole lot for you all today. Have an afternoon booked full of peeing green and passing gas! Above is just one of the things, be it written or, spoken – Up Talking – and, I reflexively tune out that individual. Just the way it is, and I’m too damn set in my ways for changing that to accommodate the moronic or, thin-skinned.
Frank Foster Explains How Concern Over Common Core Is Just Silly.
Tea folk in the 107th district should know that Frank Foster no longer needs you.
He pretty much has said as much. To him, you are searching for something that will make you “relevant.” (his words) That is your goal now since the ACA is the ‘law of the land’ and all. And since you have lost THAT battle, common core is the way you want to flex your political muscle.
Oh, and he expects to be speaker of the house next legislative session.
I want to put a finer point on recent activities seen in the judicial system of the banana republic of Michigan.
While observing the actions of Asst AG Harry Martin just prior to him throwing in the State’s towel on the Mark Baker case, the untrained eye easily recognized the disdain being heaped upon a private citizen in a courtroom.
But there was considerably more on display, and I’d like to point it out to you.
All attorneys are required to live and work in accordance with a Code of Ethics. The Code is written, very specific, and well-known to all who have passed the bar exam, and to many who did not. At no time is an attorney allowed to address another attorney’s client without the express permission of the clients attorney, and it must also be in the presence of the client’s attorney so the client is protected.
