Thursday Around Michigan

Plenty to talk about before the weekend.

logo-sphereThere is a lot of chatter still going on regarding the convention results, campaign polling, and Frank Foster peddling destructive behavior as a ‘civil right’ throughout the house to those who will cosponsor it.

Before our convention in Grand Traverse County, some of us were advised to video tape the proceedings to prevent shenanigans.  Fortunately, we nipped the chair election in the bud, and any screw ups were honest and dealt with properly. (I have never seen a convention go perfectly as planned.)  Ottawa County apparently had some issues.

And while we all are arguing among ourselves, the heir to the heavily taxpayer subsidized fortune is ‘crankin.’

Folks have until Oct 30 to file as a write in for the Nov 4 election. Is Greg MacMaster going to play spoiler or could he pull it off? (above my pay grade)

Peters is being accused of hypocrisy for paying women less and being a part of the group that has jammed the Lilly Ledbetter nonsense down our throats. Forget about all that (seriously Terri, fergetaboudit) and concentrate on the workable populist nonsense.  Like the “right To Have Drinking Water!”

Rick Snyder .. well hell I am not even sure how to present this one.  Yeah, we get it, reach out to everyone (except the base)!  Good luck with that.

    Snyder is just solidifying his base. He's got his buddies in the NOT Taxed Enough Already Party all sewn up. He's bought off his base in Detroit with our money as best he can; they're a fickle bunch. Now he's off to the peace, love and harmony muslim convention in Detroit with his comrade Jimmy Carter.

    The People's Detroit News reports on the convention and Carter's attendance in today's online edition, but so far no mention of the undocumented democrat being there.

        "Treacherous" being the operative word. "Bastard"? With some people its an accident of birth, but Ricky is a self made man.

        I was just wondering if any of those islimics would have the termerity to bring up his support for the Elliot-Larson antiheterosexual agenda.

    Just an FYI--The author of the "West Michigan Politics" Blog is a convicted criminal that was forced to resign from the Grand Haven School Board after being caught stealing money from a Cancer Society fundraiser. He also served time in jail for failing a court-ordered drug test. Not wanting to stop there, he is currently facing 10 charges of Election Fraud filed by the Attorney General for allegedly forging signatures on nominating petitions. He has a vendetta against nearly everyone in our county and shouldn't be used as a source of reliable information.

      Appreciate the heads up. Interesting that the editorial did not use the word "allegedly " as you have. Especially given they mention pending charges in same stroke of pen.
