UPDATED x3: Mackinac Center dupes a world-class hypocrite into being the face of effort to convince teachers to leave their union

Each summer, the corporatist front group Mackinac Center for Public Policy funds a massive effort to convince teachers that they are better off without their union and that they should leave it. While complaining that unions are somehow getting rich off taxpayer dollars, the Mackinac Center uses the public schools email system to disseminate their anti-union propaganda at taxpayer expense.

Australian couple to divorce if marriage equality becomes law because God, will break the 9th Commandment to do so

Australian couple to divorce if marriage equality becomes law because God, will break the 9th Commandment to do so

An Australian couple in Canberra recently penned an op-ed for the Canberra CityNews saying that, if the Australian government decides to recognize same-sex marriages, they will get a divorce. It’s not because they don’t love each. They do. They were high school sweethearts who have been married for 10 years. It’s not that. It’s that, if same-sex couples can get […]

Michigan Congressman Dan Benishek’s hypocrisy on veterans issues lands him in GOP’s Vulnerable Patriots Program

Michigan Congressman Dan Benishek’s hypocrisy on veterans issues lands him in GOP’s Vulnerable Patriots Program

Dan Benishek, the Congressman from Michigan’s 1st Congressional District made a pledge when he first ran for that seat that he would only serve three terms. When he recently reneged on that pledge, I sorta shrugged. Republican politicians lying about things isn’t particularly BREAKING NEWS!!! However, when Benishek revealed his supposed reason for breaking his pledge, I got angry. According […]

My Planet Fitness post provokes a “rebuttal” from extremist right-wing “Christian” hypocrites

My post yesterday, “Anti-trans* woman uses Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to sue Planet Fitness for terminating her membership” (which I cross-posted at Daily Kos) provoked a response from the so-called “Christians” at RenewAmerica.com today. The piece is written by Ellis Washington, a founding board member of Salt and Light Global, and is titled “Salt and Light Global targeted for […]

GOP Rep: Civil rights are “sparkly shiny trinkets the progressive political machine hangs in front of elected officials”

GOP Rep: Civil rights are “sparkly shiny trinkets the progressive political machine hangs in front of elected officials”

There is no question that newly-elected Todd Courser is going to provide endless fodder for this website for at least a couple of years. He hasn’t even taken office yet but Courser is already acting as if he owns the place and has a lock on what it means to be conservative and Republican. Courser seems fixated on ensuring that […]

Terri Lynn Land’s hypocrisy on road repair funding: She lobbied to divert road funding to her department as Secretary of State

Terri Lynn Land’s hypocrisy on road repair funding: She lobbied to divert road funding to her department as Secretary of State

In her seemingly endless quest to find something, anything, that will change the fail-trajectory of her downward spiraling poll numbers, one of the things Terri Lynn Land has tried is to recycle a Congressional tea party idea and take it as her own. Land has attempted to co-opt the “Transportation Empowerment Act” (TEA) or, as I like to call it, […]

UPDATED: You know that gas-swilling behemoth of a campaign truck driven by Terri Lynn Land? She has TWO of them!

Last week I wrote a post titled “Terri Lynn Land’s campaign is a visible demonstration of waste & excess with a $100K truck that gets 8 mpg” about the monstrous, gas-guzzling truck Terri Lynn Land has been driving around the state in. The truck gets less than 10 mpg and retailed for over $100,000. The outrage at the fact that […]

NOTE: this post has been updated HERE. Terri Lynn Land’s website has a page titled “Energy Policy”. On that page, she talks about how things used to be so wonderful in the USA because we had stable energy sources but now those days are behind us. She lists three “Solutions” to this problem. The first one is “Respect the Environment.” […]

GUEST POST: Shari Pollesch, Dem candidate for Michigan’s 22nd Senate District on the hypocrisy of Joe Hune

As I have written about in the past, thanks to Republican redistricting after the 2010 midterm, I am going from having one of the most progressive state senators, Rebekah Warren, to one of the most regressive tea party type senators you could imagine: Joe Hune. Hune has been rated as the most conservative member of the Michigan Senate. Joe Hune’s […]

Michigan Republicans continue with GOP effort to rebrand themselves as the party of choice for African Americans

Michigan Republicans continue with GOP effort to rebrand themselves as the party of choice for African Americans

I hate to tell you this, but it’s not going to work The Republican party is in desperation mode trying to ingratiate themselves with the African American community. Having spent the last several decades using race-baiting techniques to drum up support with southern whites, they’ve suddenly seen the light and know that, unless they can begin appealing to the black […]
