Gov. Snyder on raising taxes: "It's ok to ask for more revenue."
— MIRSnews.com (@MIRSnews) December 5, 2014
As Halloween nears, and folks decompress from their busy schedules with getting into their Trick or Treating festivities, what could possibly be a better opportunity for a bunch of cash strapped municipalities with public sector union legacy costs than to launch a money grab scheme involving 140+ LEO agencies in 26 counties?
Now, let’s adjourn below for another presentation from Jackboot Theatre Productions.
*The Click It Or Ticket campaign is part of Michigan’s $trategic Highway $afety Plan signed by Gov. Rick Snyder in 2013.
Now a brief message from the Michigan Automobile Dealers Associations’ schwantz-swallower.
Didja catch that? “It doesn’t change current law at all”. And, he stared us in the eye saying that. So, why is the legislature frivolously wasting our tax dollars writing Law that does nothing? More Snyder lies. Second point, if it had such “strong legislative support. The House vote was 106 to 1, the Senate vote 38 to nothing,” then what the f**k is this veto?
I have to give Snyder credit for one thing, he’s consistent – a consistently lying a**hole. Snyder knows it, and WE ALL KNOW IT.
Thanks, Rep. McMillin, for being the lone champion of free markets.
What is it with Rick Snyder, and all these no-bid contracts that surround him? If it’s not Wisconsin’s rejected trains, then it’s his cousin’s furniture contract. Now, we have another no-bid contract driven by Snyder’s Medicaid Expansion.
But a Snyder administration official said the timing “was a coincidence” as the contract increase had been in the works for more than a month before the governor’s fundraise at the Muslim Unity Center.
See that? Yet, another Snyder related “coincidence”.
Campaign finance records show the Shaya family, which owns and operates the J & B Medical Supply, has donated more than $65,000 to Snyder’s campaign over two election cycles. On June 9, the family threw a fundraiser for Snyder that cost more than $19,000 — the most expensive shindig for the governor this election cycle — and generated nearly $74,000 in campaign cash, records show.
That doesn’t look too good, does it?
Ho, ho, ho, look at what slithered out here. Dick Posthumus’ old toady. Yes, the same Bennett who not long ago said, “Michigan’s 11th Congressional District faces an unusual situation, as its incumbent congressman failed to get enough petition signatures to qualify for the ballot — thus denying Republicans in the district a qualified nominee”. Loren is a real piece of work, yes? Thank God, Bentivolio was sent to Washington, and not that corruptocrat ☞
So, what’s a Nerd supposed to do when caught in another no-bid series of contracts that netted him $93,000 worth of re-election freebies? Use his playbook on deflection.
“People are trying to make something out of it,” Snyder said. “Basically, they’ve had an agreement with the state going back to before when I was governor. Healthy Michigan (Medicaid expansion) has been going so well, we needed to keep things going.”
Wait a minute, I thought Snyder said he didn’t blame others. So, the Democrats “are trying to make something out of it”? Really? Well, let’s see…
Other no-bid contracts on wasteful spending eliminated from Wisconsin government.
“I guess if I were running a multimillion-dollar company, which you are called MDOT, and I only got one bid, boy, would I be nervous as to what I had missed, and I guess I would step back and look at the entire process and start all over again,” said Sen. Bruce Caswell, R-Hillsdale.

Judging by the volume of Snyder Bee-esS wafting through the air, one sure can tell it is a desperation election year.
Living well and aging well in our later years demands individual efforts, for sure. But it also needs a commitment from the state to partner locally, so we create an environment conducive to healthy and active aging.
And, that way-cool, forced into Snydercaid expansion Obamacare Estate confiscation provision, too.

Then, there is this anathema.
Contractors said it was easy for costs to escalate. Often, the worst homes on the block were selected. Some needed expensive foundation repairs, lead and asbestos abatement and new plumbing and electrical systems. And many homes, especially in Boston Edison, are just big, adding to costs for roofing and other materials.
“Wherever we go in the city of Detroit, it has to be subsidized,” said Lisa Johanon, executive director of Central Detroit Christian Community Development Corp., a nonprofit that did two renovations. “It is costly, no doubt about it, but I think we have some stabilized neighborhoods.
“It’s just what it takes right now to get Detroit on its feet.”
A pox on their ☝ house.
