Tag: Gary Peters
Maybe I, or better yet, my cat, should run for Michigan's US Senate race. After the (deserved) beat-down Peters is receiving, and expected to receive up until election day I think my fat little furry friend could win on policy alone.
Americans For Prosperity is reminding Michiganians that Gary Peters was one of those congress critters who lack common sense, doesn't know how to read, do math or learn from history. The Michigan chapter of Americans for Prosperity, the nation's foremost grassroots advocate for health care freedom, launched a million-dollar multimedia campaign on Tuesday, aimed at holding Rep. Gary Peters accountable for his support of the ObamaCare mess.
Television, radio and online ads launch across the state today and will run for three weeks at a cost of roughly $1 million. The television component will run on both broadcast and cable. The TV Ad and other data are ..

Seriously, ANYONE could win Michigan's US Senate seat being vacated by Carl Levin.
At least if Gary Peters is all the Democrat party has to offer. The RNC has targeted a number of politicians who parroted the Obama lie:"You can keep it .." in the run up to passage of the ACA. They will be running a series of ads pointing out the many times each of these folks opened their pieholes to mislead constituents in this regard. The Michigan ads will initially be radio spots like this one (modified for Peter's name used instead) saying:
"So what's your New Year's resolution? Here's one you can keep. Resolve to keep [Senator/Representative] honest in 2014.And its based in fact.
From the Ivory Tower in 2009:
" .. Illegal immigrants won't be covered, Peters said. Medicare benefits won't change, and will include no co-pays for preventative care and a reduction in drug costs. And Congress isn't being treated any differently than anyone else who has employer-covered insurance, Peters said.You know, it seems as if those might just have been 'talking points' to keep the natives from getting too restless about the takeover of a quarter of the economy. No, really!
Though this is very serious, It still reminds me of a joke.
Go below the fold and I will pass it along.

As it turns out, the RNC has made another Subtle statement with the Lie of the year trophies.
Because of liberal policies, manufacturing over time has had to find other havens where makers of such products as TROPHIES can do so competitively. The Dems have consistently advocated higher taxes, and unrealistic workplace rules that hamstring domestic manufacturing to the point of closure or relocation.
Fewer makers of wealth and even fewer workers yet.
How appropriate that the awards offered to those Democrats are from those places that carry so much of our debt.
I found this story funny, though the subject is far from it.
Apparently the RNC has awarded a number of vulnerable Dems a special award for their participation in the American catastrophe known as Obamacare.
" Rebecca Coffman, a press assistant at the RNC .. holding the trophy outside Senator Mary Landrieu's office before presenting it to one of her staffers. "We'd like to present Senator Landrieu with the Lie of the Year award on behalf of the Republican National Committee," she said.At least he took it. No sore losers there, right?
Gary Peters, who will probably lose to whomever runs for US Senate in 2014 received the award above for his part in bringing forward the end to the US constitution.

Meet the Fockers.
AYES: Benishek, Camp, Huizenga, Miller, Rogers, Upton, Walberg
We've seen the movie before. Spoiler alert: in this sequel, Paul Ryan and John Boehner lie, and the Marxstream Media prints the lie. Once again, the Michigan GOP delegation majority has voted with Gary Peters, which is their ongoing endorsement of Gary Peters for U.S. Senate.
I cannot do much in other congressional districts, however, I am aware of what I can effect in CD-1.
Congressman Dan Benishek, go f#@% yourself. With a chainsaw.
Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, I thank you for voting NO, and voting on Principle. To that extent, I acknowledge the no vote of this dubious character playing in the Yob-ite propaganda machine. With same regard, I thank Reps. Conyers, and Levin, for their no votes too.

Add "Wikipedia Contributing Editor" to the list of things I do that I don't get paid for. It started around mid-November of last year, with me noticing that a certain biographical page really needed to be updated with recent events, which I initially did anonymously (before realizing that I might as well create an account if I'm going to be doing this regularly). Of course, I'm now at the point where there's just under three dozen Wikipedia articles on my watchlist (which is steadily expanding), and the pages for Michigan gubernatorial election, 2014 and United States Senate election in Michigan, 2014 currently sit in the "top eight" on the most frequently visited pages that show up every time I open a new tab in my Google Chrome browser (right now at positions #6 and #7, respectively). I'm also doing the heavy lifting for a major restructuring of the United States House of Representatives elections in Michigan, 2014 article.
And go figure that, in the process of researching for a project that's only tangentially related, I learned a little something yesterday about yet another unnecessary snag created by the recent federal shutdown.

Terri Lyn Land, the presumed Michigan GOP offering for US Senate in 2014 has just seen four GOP congressmen in lockstep with her opponent on an issue of critical importance.
As posited by Scales (a thoughtful and accurate analysis) in his comment:
"Benishek, Camp, Rogers, and Upton just endorsed Gary Peters for US Senate!"Which is essentially true.
On matters of amounts, levels of funding, and minor issues like renaming parks for your friends agreement across the aisle might not be such a big thing. However in this issue of surrendering Principle and giving the worst president in the history of this nation a football spiking win and subsequent destruction of our healthcare?
It must be intentional. They mean it. They agree with it. They want it, and so does Gary Peters. The similarity of thought is amazing.
I would be interested in Terri's thoughts on their support of her opponent.
