Wednesday Divertere – The Expert

As the Obamacare fiasco goes on, so do the preposterous claims that it will save money.

The ACA planners undoubtedly ran into a man like Anderson in the video, yet were unswayed in their quest to make red lines out of blue (or transparent) ink. Economics however, not being too difficult, is still a basic skill that is not yet fully understood by the progressive left. (And those who think that expanding welfare in Michigan brings a financial advantage to the state)

The Same Mental Condition That Brings You Obamacare

Nothing new, but always disappointing.

The left has no tolerance for the suffering, unless THEY too are a part of the intolerant left.  Battling cancer ends the right to free speech apparently.  Julie Boonstra’s effort to let folks know how badly Obamacare has affected HER has simply made her a target for those who present themselves as champions of compassion.

ICYMI – Peter Konetchy Video From 2012 Cycle

konetchyIn 2011, then senate candidate Peter Konetchy spoke to a group of conservatives in Kalkaska, Michigan.

He spoke on issues that have become front and center in the fight against government overreach.  Our Constitution and what we have allowed to be done to it as a part of the conversation.  I have a video of the entire meeting on Youtube.

As a part of the question and answer, the question was asked: “Do you support the repeal of the 17th amendment?” His response was clear and to the point, and very relevant to much of what our current troubles are.

We have a short window to demonstrate support for this constitutional conservative in a relatively safe Republican district. Make it clear Constitutional Conservatives mean business by spreading the word, and offer support in whatever way possible.

BREAKING – Dave Camp To Bow Out

CampAnd the Michigan Congressional selection just got a little more interesting.

With only three weeks to the filing deadline, Congressman Dave Camp has said he will not seek re-election.  Rollcall reports his announcement:

“Today, I am announcing that I will not seek re-election to the United States House of Representatives,” Camp said in a statement. “This decision was reached after much consideration and discussion with my family.”

We wish him the best of luck in future endeavors.

We also hope that Peter Konetchy is ready to fend off an expected establishment chosen congressional candidate.  Konetchy is currently the only announced candidate for the 4th congressional district in Michigan

Keeping ’em fat, Dumb, and Happy

Interesting Opening Day snippet about the new “Enhanced Security” clustermuck at billionaire Ilitch’s taxpayer subsidized Amphitheatrum Flavium.

SheepleOthers, such as St. Clair Shores resident Scott Mitchell, came early to beat the wait.

“If it’s for our safety, I don’t mind it,” he said.
….

“I’m OK with it,” said Bryan Collison, 27. “Pretty much anywhere you go now you have to use these.”
….

Larry Dewey, 58, wasn’t worried about longer lines, either. Dewey has been to more than 30 Opening Day games and said the change wasn’t that big of a deal.

“Safety first,” the Rochester Hills native said. “Once everyone gets used to it, it will be just like any other game.”

Now, how did Franklin know that what he warned about would be Boomer and Millennial dolts? What a visionary Ben was. If one suspected otherwise one most certainly could assert that the indoctrination is being induced from elsewhere *cough*Public Act 396 of 2012*cough*.
