Tar, feathers, rail, politicians… some assembly required.

Well, this is rather embarrassing for the RNC/GOPe, that is, if they had any shame.

Because we all know exactly how much Higher Ed matters.
Are you understanding it, yet?
Bonus. We all now know what the jagoff on the right in the photo above collects a taxpayer funded paycheck for.
Here comes your fuel tax and fee hikes.
Both sides, along with Gov. Rick Snyder, generally agree on the need for $1.2 billion a year in additional road funding, but they’ll need 54 votes to get it done. Cotter’s willingness to at least consider $800 million in new revenue likely increases the odds of a deal.
“For me, it’s not just about the proportion — how much is new revenue and how much is general fund — but all the other details that go into making up a package,” Cotter, R-Mt. Pleasant, said Thursday. “I want to see what are the forms of new revenue, where’s it coming from and to what degree, but then also what other pieces of the package exist.”
The governor and legislative leaders from both sides of the aisle have been meeting regularly – twice in each of the past two weeks, according to Snyder — in hopes of reaching an agreement they all can live with.
“The lieutenant governor and I, I think it’s fair to say we both think there’s been a lot of progress in these meetings,” Snyder said last week. “Issues are coming up [indeed], we’re having a healthy discussion and people are trying to be good problem solvers. People are trying to come to a good solution.”
Cotter said he thinks they’re “very close” to a deal, but he also acknowledged he’s said that before.
“I’ve been saying for some time now that I’d like to get this to the floor in October, and I think we’re on a good pace to do that,” he said.
Where’s the “future budget pressures” mentioned within the article?
Tho, I’m rather confident the list of insufferable losers will grow ’cause… #Cuckservatives

We urge Mich Senate to take the next step to fix the roads. Senate plan for roads includes 15-cent boost in gas tax. http://t.co/t0tj6Iyfai

What is it that SOB’s in Lansing, do not understand about no new taxes?
Time for part time legislature because, 51.4¢ a gallon on gas, and 55.6¢ a gallon on diesel: http://www.api.org/state-taxes/michigan.pdf

Of course, the title of this post is as fictitious as the propaganda below.
See that? Now it’s about children’s safety so, see Sec. 257.710e (2). Precious cargo, huh?
At least the $2B annual tax hikers stopped just short of “Or even the whole bridge” in this attempt to excite the emotions of easy preyed upon dimwits who might be gullible enough to buy into this contractor lobbied nonsense.
