…some trombone Obama.
I guess I ought to be flattered that Susan Demas at MLive took an entire article to tell me how wrong I am: Left complains about ‘almost secret’ workers’ compensation hearing on TV right now.
I just wish she would have gotten my blog’s name spelled right.
There are a few problems with that statement. Mainly, that it’s not secret at all.
For one thing, the Senate hearing was properly posted on the Michigan Legislature’s website and has been there since last week.…
Republican sponsored legislation, Senate Bill 619 recently passed the Senate. This bill represents what could be the first steps toward eliminating large numbers of teachers from Michigan classrooms.
The proposal would remove caps on enrollment in and the number of “cyberschools,” or those in which students learn online through a teacher in another location.
Students either spend a portion or the entire school day learning in front of a computer — an option some lawmakers say expands opportunities for students who learn differently than others.…
For those of you reaching this post via Susan Demas’ silly article wherein she calls out some random liberal blogger on the internet, assigns his opinion as that of “the left”, and then files the story as “news”, I commend your attention to THIS POST.
Last week, I wrote about proposed changes to Michigan’s Workers Compensation laws being put through by Republicans. The House has already passed the legislation and it is now being considered in the Senate as House Bill 5002. These changes rely on the use of imaginary wages and imaginary pensions to intentionally cut benefits for injured workers.…
Turns out the Republicans’ retaliatory efforts to recall Democrats in Michigan was just an effort to collect contact information. Yesterday, Michigan Republican Party ended its recall drives against Democrats.
Stu Sandler, a consultant to the Michigan GOP who was organizing more than a dozen recall campaigns against Democrats, said the decision was made after discussions with Gov. Rick Snyder and other party leaders.
“We met our strategic goals,” Sandler said. “We spent a minimal amount of money and gained thousands of contacts” and “I think the Democrats were clearly on the defensive.”
In other words, they were never serious about recalling Democrats.…
There are a pair of bills going through Congress right now that have the potential to radically alter the government’s ability to regulate industries and organizations in our country.
The first of these is the childishly-named “Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act”(H.R. 10). Currently, Congress passes a regulatory law and it is up to the agencies within the Executive branch to write the regulations based on that direction from the Legislative branch. If Congress doesn’t like how it is done, there are expedited ways for them to halt the new or changed regulations.
Under the REINS Act, this all changes.…
Last week, I wrote about Carson Borbely & Katy Butler, two inspiring Ann Arbor teens who have done something tangible and important to combat bullying in Michigan. Fighting back against a Senate-passed “License to Bully” bill that claims to be “anti-bullying”, the created a petition at Change.org. When I wrote my piece last Thursday, the petition had a bit over 53,000 signatures. Today, only five days later, it has over 55,000.
Remember when they
tear-gassed pepper-sprayed the tea party demonstrators?
Yeah, me neither.
Or the Westboro Baptist Church morons?
Funny about that, isn’t it?
But, then, they weren’t being all threatening and violent by just, you know, sitting there, right? Like these guys?
