WTF?

Okay.  The State of Michigan is in deep shit according to the GOP and Gov. Synder.  And, we have a state university paying a fracking football coach $2 Million dollars in the first of his 6 year contract.

Quote of the Day

"This is my 10th presidential campaign, Lord help me. I have never before seen such a bunch of vile, desperate-to-please, shameless, embarrassing losers coagulated under a single party's banner. They are the most compelling argument I've seen against American exceptionalism."  Joe Klein

Synder Is Doing It To Michigan

Wake up, America!

The GOP Jobs Plan for America

All the jobs taken overseas will return to American workers when American workers accept cuts in their wages and benefits to a level less than the wages and benefits received by Chinese and Mexican workers...

No Jobs for Michigan This Year Says Governor Snyder

Look carefully at what the Governor says and does.  Right now, he is all about busting unions, negating local elections, and taking money from the poor and retirees to give to Michigan businesses.  He repeats the old LIE that lower taxes on corporations and small businesses will bring more jobs into the State of Michigan.  Tried and failed, Folks.  First Engler, then President Bush gave away money to the rich.  Jobs left Michigan and not enough jobs were created each month of Bush's presidency to fill the demand.......


The Big Republican LIE is still being repeated in Michigan and Washington, D.C.


And, now, amidst the current controversy about emergency financial managers, cuts in education funding, cuts in the services needed by Michigan's deaf community, and more cuts and on and on................  Snyder says, "Next year, my main issue is, let’s start the job creation process."


WTF?


RECALL Snyder before next year!!!!



LOL

Dear Michigan


You blew it!  Snyder is not a centrist and moderate Republican.  He is a corporate shill.  He hates unions and Michigan workers.  The bullshit that tax breaks for businesses creates more jobs has been disproved.  It didn't happen when Engler did it.  It hasn't happened anywhere -- ever!

The GOP lies.  They have lied to the Michigan people for decades.  And, still Michiganders continue to vote against their own interests by putting these corporation bought clowns into positions of power.  Yep.  Welcome to Michigan where the politicians are bought and paid for by Amway and outsiders.

Why is Snyder giving away almost two billion dollars to businesses in Michigan while cutting the funds needed to educate Michigan's children?  Why is he giving away all that tax revenue to the rich while asking the poorest to sacrifice?  None of his proposals call for "shared sacrifice"!  Tell me.  What are the rich sacrificing to save Michigan?

Vicki Barnes: Homophobic Bigot



The more things change the more they stay the same.  Even as the United States moves toward acceptance of all persons, acceptance of same-sex relationships, and now supporting a courageous U.N. statement on the human rights of LGBT people -- the bigots remain in positions of power.  The most absurd things come out of their mouths.  Lies.  And, more lies.


And, one of the biggest liars in Tennessee is the executive director of the Sweetwater Housing Authority. Vicki Barnes sent a rather asinine and vicious piece of fiction to the Department of Housing and Urban Development in response to HUD's proposed rules banning discrimination against LGBT folks.  She compares us to murderers, cult members, drug dealers, and prostitutes.  She seems convinced that LGBT clients in public housing would create more crime.  Who knows what she bases this claim on?


Read her letter here.


Thanks to Joe at Joe.My.God. for providing the letter online and alerting the world to this ignorant individual and the harm she probably causes folks in Tennessee with her bigoted views and actions.


Fire her.
