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.
It’s giving Tuesday, and one might wonder if the United Way is, or ever was an organization that speaks to our collective benevolence in conscience. We might ask what joy is there in supporting organizations that encourage business to round up it’s employees and make them actively acknowledge that they are “not giving today, thank you.”
As an employee of UPS in Traverse City a couple of decades ago, I attended the Friday morning Charity of the week sessions where United Way sent representatives to talk about the good it was doing with our pulled-from-the-paycheck donations. We stood around for a half hour (paid by UPS) listening to the mandatory presentation on why we should continue giving. I Didn’t much care for that; I was there to work.
Look for the union label, which if that floats one’s sinking boat… work it fo da chil’ren, sista!
The outspoken Brown – named running mate of Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer more than two months ago – expressed empathy with retired teachers at the West Michigan MEA-Retired Chapter at a luncheon gathering.
“I know it’s not a 9-to-5 job, and I know it’s not a nine-month-a-year job, either,” she said. “There’s some people in the state who feel that educators are evil. That’s really the feeling that seems to come out of Lansing all too often.”
Isn’t it odd that Lisa didn’t get in there that they start Teaching at 17. Ouch! Is that just a cheap shot at Terri List? No, not so much as she received …wait for it… a public education. C’mon, I’m no monster, I “feel their pain“. So, how bad is it for the Michigan Democratic Party? It’s so bad that all they can do is reach out to their base that is bankrupting cities and burying states in debt all across this nation. Seen Michigan’s liability just for teachers lately? Many players on “Team R” are complicit, too.
