The “10 years of taxes for 6 years of spending” lie

The “10 years of taxes for 6 years of spending” lie

I posted blog entry yesterday where I highlighted the out-of-touch nature of a GOP candidate in my Congressional district (MI-07) with regard to the new health insurance reform law. On my Facebook page, I got an earful from a guy who said this about it: It uses 10 years of tax receipts to pay for 6 years of benefits – […]

Of petards, Republicans and hoisting

Or maybe I should call this “Of chickens and Republicans and roosting”. From the Associated Press comes this article today: Republicans suffering for 2008 bank bailout vote: Some of Congress’ staunchest conservatives voted two years ago to prop up the nation’s banking industry. At the time, they saw a threat to American business. Now the emergency is their own political […]

MI House candidate: “OFA is the equiv. of the brown shirts”

Dave Franklin is running for the Michigan House of Representatives seat in Michigan’s 54th district, a seat currently held by Michigan gubernatorial candidate Alma Wheeler Smith. Dave Franklin hates him some government. And Dave Franklin especially hates him some Democratic Party grassroots organizers. Yesterday, on the Facebook page for a Tea Party protest on the campus of the University of […]

Teabaggers rally on the Univ.of Mich. campus? What are they thinking???

Honestly, I’m just boggled by this. The Tea Party of Ann Arbor is holding a Tax Day rally on Thursday, April 15th on the University of Michigan Diag. Seriously. Right here in the heart of Michigan liberalism! I just don’t get it. Do they honestly think they aren’t going to be completely swarmed by a ton of Ann Arbor liberals, […]

The legendary hypocrisy and lies of Tim Walberg

The legendary hypocrisy and lies of Tim Walberg

It’s masochism on my part, I suppose, but I have gotten on the email lists of the two leading GOP contenders who are seeking the nomination to challenge Congressman Mark Schauer (MI-07) this November. The leading leading contender is an odious man named Tim Walberg who held the position for only one term before being sent packing in 2008. His […]

Another day, another THREE teabagger articles in my paper

Well, not MY newspaper but the Gannett paper in the town where I work (Howell), the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus. As I mentioned in my blog the other day (It’s not just FOX News, People), the Press & Argus is doing their damndest to promote the teabaggers. That day there were two articles about the teabaggers, one on […]

Taxing the wealthy will kill the economy? Teabagger, please.

Taxing the wealthy will kill the economy? Teabagger, please.

The teabagger (or shall we say “Teapublican”?) poo is going to really hit the fan later this year. Why? Because Barack HUSSEIN Obama is going to let the Bush tax cuts expire. Well, actually Congress is going to but let’s not quibble. Fresh from raising taxes on upper-income Americans to help expand health insurance coverage, President Obama and Democratic lawmakers […]

Push in Michigan to opt-out of health insurance reform law

Michigan’s been in the news a LOT lately. From our governor forcing the Att. Gen. to intervene against himself to Militiamen Gone WildTM, things are a bit crazy. Now come the Howell Teabaggers: Starting Monday, Livingston County will be “ground zero” for an effort to place a proposal for Michigan to opt out of federal health-care law on the November […]

Mich. Governor directs AG to intervene against HIMSELF!

As I wrote yesterday, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox, also a Republican candidate for governor, has joined in a lawsuit with 12 other state Attorneys General that contends the health insurance reform LAW is unconstitutional. This has made Governor Michigan Jennifer Granholm very unhappy. So, in her capacity as governor, she has directed Cox to intervene on behalf of the […]

Michigan AG joins lawsuit against health insurance reform LAW

Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox is joining 12 other state Attorneys General across the country in a suit claiming the new federal health-care reform LAW is unconstitutional. (Let’s none of us forget that this is now a LAW and was signed by the president who is a Constitutional lawyer.) I guess Mr. Cox feels Michigan has money to burn. Given […]

And the grownups move forward

And the grownups move forward

I’m taking a day off from being a grownup. In fact, I’m acting childish today. On my way to work, as I drove past the home of the man (Mark Koernke) who placed “Buy Gasmasks Now!” and “Buy more Ammo NOW!” signs in front of his house the day after the 2008 presidential elections, I let my Eff Flag fly […]
