Former attorney General Frank Kelley is bemoaning the fact some of his work is being looked at a little more closely. He is feeling a bit put out apparently:
But he's worried now, about us -- our state, our nation, and our future. Last week he sent a rather remarkable letter to a number of opinion leaders in this state. "I am writing to you now with a sense of dismay," he says. "During my time in office I truly tried to serve the people," he says, adding with pride that, "during my time in office, very few of my opinions were ever overturned."
So he is super bummed that he is being told he is wrong. Big surprise.
Kelley complains that constitutional protections are being threatened. Particularly where corporations and money going to elections would be concerned. Strangely, I don't recall a Kelly 'decision' that said unions couldn't participate in the election process, and I really don't recall any kvetching about the McCain Feingold bill which convoluted the entire process even more. No, Franky Kelley would like it one way and if the flavor doesn't have his stink, he isn't happy.
Go cry a river FORMER ag.
And while you are at it, consider this great representation of individual rights you fought for. Yeah, that one. Right.
Now used for seat belt enforcement justification, it is a wholesale abrogation of the 4th brought to you by this concerned genius. He was wrong then, and still wrong today.
I gotta tell you all, its been a crazy year.
Personally, my family and I have suffered a few losses, and that expanded into the conservative community as well with bloggers/activists David Hinz, and Chetly Zarko. Well, David passed in 2009, but with the new reality we own, things tend to blend, and pretty much everything from February 2009 falls into what I consider the last year.
All of the efforts that truly started in 2009 with the Santelli rant igniting the movement of the last 200 years started paying dividends this year. Those of us who knew its effects would be incredible indeed, kept at it, writing about the strength of an awakened consciousness that the MSM pooh poohed. The insistence of our 'fringe' and inconsequential movement, failing and as mistaken as the reports of Mark Twain's death so many years ago.
The news of THIS movement's demise was indeed greatly exaggerated.
However there were moments of doubt.

2010 has been an incredible year for Michigan politics and other ways in our lives.. Ways both good and bad. As a community we have suffered losses that are tough to bear, and gains that give us hope. I think it has been the year with the most personal effect on my own life, but also might well be a defining one in the history of Michigan and the entire nation.
Lets have RightMichigan.com send off 2010 ..with a bang.
Lets share our experiences and thoughts. Get your stories together, and leave room for the last few days that exist between today and the Christmas - New years day week. As this year has shown us it doesn't take long for some things to develop.
And as legend Yogi Berra once offered.. "It ain't over till its over"
