More disenfranchisement of voters by Republicans in Michigan

As I wrote about in my piece for A2Politico this week, the organizers of the recall effort against Republican state Representative Paul Scott was dealt a devastating blow last week when Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Clinton Canady granted an injunction barring the use of petition signatures that have been gathered. This was the only recall effort in Michigan to secure enough valid signatures to put it on the November 2011 ballot.

This particular recall was high-profile because Scott’s anti-teacher’s union activities in the legislature sparked the Michigan Education Assocation to get involved with the recall, donating money and resources to the effort.…

Insane tea partiers are insane

Holy craptastic crap!

“I’m on strike!” – Ellis Wyatt, from the end of the movie “Atlas Shrugged, Part 1″, based on the novel by Ayn Rand

Resolved that: The Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Senate, in alliance with a global Progressive socialist movement, have participated in what appears to be a globalist socialist agenda of redistribution of wealth, and the waging of class warfare against our constitutional republic’s heritage of individual rights, free market capitalism, and indeed our Constitution itself, with the ultimate goal of collapsing the U.S. economy and globalizing us into socialism.

Resolved that: President Obama has seized what amount to dictatorial powers to bypass our Congress, and that because the Congress is controlled by a Progressive socialist Senate that will not impeach one of their kind, they have allowed this and yielded what are rightfully congressional powers to this new dictator.

More on Lord’s Resistance Army w/ a video response to Limbaugh from an LRA survivor

As I wrote yesterday, Rush Limbaugh criticized President Obama for sending 100 of our troops to Africa to help rid the planet of some of the most evil people alive. Here’s what he said:

Now, up until today, most Americans have never heard of the combat Lord’s Resistance Army. And here we are at war with them. Have you ever heard of Lord’s Resistance Army, Dawn? How about you, Brian? Snerdley, have you? You never heard of Lord’s Resistance Army? Well, proves my contention, most Americans have never heard of it, and here we are at war with them.

Rick Snyder offers a non-response to a constituent regarding impending No-Fault insurance reform

One of the many people who are working to ensure that Republicans do not hand a gift to insurance companies by “reforming” our state’s auto insurance laws wrote to Governor Rick Snyder. They asked him to veto any changes to our current law that would remove the requirement for lifetime benefits in the event of catastrophic injuries sustained in a car accident. As I wrote last week, this so-called “reform” is nothing more than a gift to auto insurance companies that not only will not save Michigan consumers money but will, in fact, increase our costs.

Michigan’s no-fault auto insurance is the GOP’s current target for reform.…

Recall target Republican Kurt Damrow gets tossed out Republican Party

Bwahahaha! Even the Republicans don’t want Kurt Damrow around, it seems. Damrow, a Republican who, as I reported today in an A2Politico piece was the target of a failed recall attempt, has been unceremoniously tossed out of the Huron County Republican Party.

The Huron County Republican Party’s Executive Committee voted 18 to 2 to immediately remove 84th District State Rep. Kurt E. Damrow’s membership of the Huron County Republican Party.

During a meeting Tuesday morning at the Peppermill Restaurant in Bad Axe, local Republicans reviewed a seven-page resolution outlining a number of reasons for removing Damrow from the local party.
