The Michigan House just voted to give the Detroit Public Schools a $500 million bailout and the State Senate wants to give $800 million.
104th State Representative and incumbent Larry Inman explains it away as a necessary evil. He suggested on the Ron Jolly radio program Wednesday morning, that lawyers warned house leadership that if they didn’t do something, the courts would take over, and it could be far worse. He referenced the Michigan constitution, and its requirement on the legislature to provide funding for the schools.
My guess is that he did not ask the question of the attorneys advising the house “what might happen if every school district subjected the taxpayers to the same challenge?”
YES, the state is supposed to provide an education. The legislature is supposed to “maintain and support a system of elementary and secondary schools.. ” In fact, From the state constitution:
Lt Governor Julie Calley looking to ignore the responsibilities of home?
What about binkies and blankees?
there is news that the wife of L.t Governor Brian Calley will be making a run for a Michigan House seat this year. Commissioner Julie Calley has created a campaign committee to run in the 87th House District, a safe Republican seat that includes Barry as well as part of Ionia County. While Calley is already engaged in the political theater, perhaps she doesn’t understand the time investment difference between duties as a commissioner, and that of a state rep.
And yeah.. I get it. The title is a little provocative.
I realize the life of a housewife (or beta male) isn’t all laundry, cooking, and washing dishes. Though we hope the Calley household has some of those things taken care of (for the sake of the chilluns and hygiene), a realistic life at home is far more fulfilling. Even while the National Organization for Women (see picture of iron-Clad logo at right) might suggest to impressionable young mothers’ (or other less dominant members of our species) minds that getting out of the house away from the kids is good, perhaps there ought to be an examination of the whole situation first.
My wife and I spent a great deal of time on classes and learning how to be foster parents in the Grand Traverse Region.
Our goal was to be able to provide a short term safe shelter for children who are in need of emergency placement and to get away from dangerous situations. The temporary aspect of it did not bother us, and we ‘graduated’ the lengthy course and went into standby mode. When one situation arose where a child was in grave danger, Bethany services reached out, but our contact was overruled by the child’s counselor, and the child was left to fend for self.
Why? Because we are too political in our home.
Take it in whatever way you want. We offered assistance, and the young person in question is still to this day (as far as we know) in danger. In the mean time, note that it is Bethany, who is plotting with the government to assist in hiding the illegal and indigent children who are invading our country.
All attendees received several handouts. One was titled, “Become a Refugee Foster Parent.” A few minutes into the program, I began taking video and learned the truth. Bethany Christian Services presented information regarding their social programs regarding bringing “undocumented minors” to west Michigan.
I have to face it, without my two dads I would be a very different man.
Most people who know me, understand that I shy away from that which is politically correct.
This Fathers Day, it seemed to be an excellent time to reinforce that understanding, and offer a view that may not be widely held. Try as I might, I can no longer disguise the fact that I have not one, but two fathers; each of whom are so incredibly important, that the loss of either one would leave me in a state of severe depression.
Both of my fathers have cared for me since I was young, somehow knowing what to provide for my brothers and I, and always making sure we had what was needed. Though they did not always provide the things that we wanted, there is no question we were never without the essentials, and those necessary things were given with unconditional love, and often a touch of sacrifice.
