Center mass. That is what gun control looks like. Thanks, Joe!
We the People are truly fortunate our Founding Fathers were cognizant of the roving thugs that will always be part of humanity, and the especially dangerous variety of thugs being: in government.

I realize that this is supposed to be a Michigan-centric blogsite, but since the congressional district in question includes Lucas County (specifically including the Toledo Strip), and since I'm still convinced that Michigan got the short end of the stick on that deal, I consider this technically a Michigan issue.
We all remember the now-famous ABC footage from a certain Ohio suburb on an October afternoon three years ago, in which a certain businessman asked a certain presidential candidate a question, the answer to which exposed the candidate as the socialist that he is. We also remember how the left went all roto-rooter on the businessman in the following weeks, some of it involving "improper access of personal information" on various government databases, for having the temerity to call that candidate out on the record.

It appears we will again have the honor of seeing the man who would dare ask the honest question of candidate Barack Obama: "Isn't that Socialism?"

Spoke this morning with Joan Fabiano and the Tea Party team and there is big news re: the April 15th shindig. Specifically, they've landed a big "get."
Americans for Prosperity-Michigan and team just announced that Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, "Joe the Plumber," will speak at the Michigan Taxpayer Tea Party on the steps of the State Capitol in Lansing on April 15th.
"With one simple question to Presidential Candidate Barack Obama, Joe the Plumber changed the atmosphere of last fall's presidential campaign," said Scott Hagerstrom, state director of Americans for Prosperity. "Joe is truly an inspiration to all Americans on how grassroots activism can have a positive difference for the future of our country."
So too are Joan, Melanie Hall and Wendy Day who have been working, with others (forgive me for failing to mention EVERYONE) and a huge coalition of pro-freedom organizations to put this event together. Even learned this morning that Jason Gillman has chartered a BUS to help folks get to Lansing from Traverse City!
