The Future Governor of Michigan

The message should be clear these days that the level of corruption in our current government can not be underestimated. The woman who said she was going to fix the roads instead, killed the economy, shut down schools, bankrupted businesses and individuals, and participated in the theft of an election. But enough about Whitmer. What do we know about the next person we need to sit in the office of Governor?

The people of Michigan, those who live above the liberal line of the southern quarter of the state, want one thing, to be left alone. They don’t want mask mandates, mandatory vaccines, businesses shut down because of a germ that might kill grandma, or a tax on their vehicle that gets them to work and back. The policies of the Whitmer/ Biden administration have been an on-going war against rural America that keeps this country running. It is not uncommon to drive down a country road and see a “don’t tread on me” flag flying next to the American flag.

Schools have one job, to teach reading, writing and arithmetic. If a school is caught teaching anything outside of the basic courses, then they lose funding and the teachers are to be fired. If needed the teacher’s union at this point needs to be busted. Critical Race Applied Practices or CRAP, needs to stay out of schools from kindergarten to college. If what the teacher is telling students has nothing to do with their future profession or living life, they are wasting tax payer dollars and need to be fired. Schools don’t tech kids how to balance check books or how credit cards work but they want to focus on boys can be girls and white privilege. Parents don’t want this. The parents, through their taxes pay these schools. At this point the property taxes collected through the county to pay these schools is an organized collection of extortion that is funding an agenda the tax payers did not agree to. Cut the funding or cut the CRAP, your choice.

Cut the pay of every elected and appoint position in the state. Many of the people who work under the governor have inflated pay rates of six figures in a state where the average citizen makes five figures. Cut the rates of political positions to hire the people who really want the job and are not just looking for a payout for doing nothing.

Get rid of the DMV. We already know this office can function without being open thanks to covid. Have people register their vehicles online or through the mail. Cut the rates of registration which is really a tax on a necessary purchase.

All citizens receive a voter registration card on their 18th birthday along with their registration for the draft. This should not be optional and should be automatic on the day they can legally vote. The option should come when they choose to voter or not.

First, no government office has the right to claim a business is “non-essential”. If a business is closed the business needs to be compensated for loses or not be forced to pay taxes for the time they were closed.

No government official has the right to force a landlord to house a person who has not paid rent for extended periods of time. If this is done the landlord can not be forced to pay taxes on said property and the loss of income needs to be paid by the government who caused the loss.

Fix the pipes in flint. All funds used to pay state officials shall be diverted to the cost of replacing pipes in flint until all pipes have been replaced. Snyder shall also be brought up on charges of recklessness and child abuse.

Hunting licenses shall not be needed for hunting on private land.

Any app on cell phones in the state of Michigan are not aloud to record the owner or collect information on the user.

Telemarketing shall be illegal in the state of Michigan for landline phones and cell phones.

More to come…

You get what you pay for

The news has been a sounding board for the idea of karma lately. 2020 was a crap year and it appears to have set the stage for even bigger disappointments, violence, and death. While some of these stories sound like the plots to cheap soap operas, others are straight out of Tom Clancy novels.

On the romance front it would appear that governor Gretchen Whitmer had her heart broken when she requested more vaccines for her state of Michigan only to be declined and told to lockdown again instead. Only a few months ago she had guaranteed the electoral votes of the state for Biden during the election. In return she has received no help or special privileges. These days I picture the stupid look on her face as she thinks to herself, he told me he loved me. You get what you pay for.

Onto the Ukraine and Biden front, the same country that Hunter Biden was given a cushy job is about to be invaded by Russia and they don’t appear to care about US involvement. Not only did Ukraine make the mistake of catering to the Biden family but they had the misfortune of having a man almost 80 years old elected into office. Over on the Chinese front, another country Hunter Biden received money from, there are 200+ ships off the coast of Taiwan and they don’t care about the US being involved. These situations have been simmering for the last four years and as soon as the administration is changed these two countries hit the “Go” button and prepare for war. You get what you pay for.

Riots erupted in Minneapolis again after a man was shot by a cop during a traffic stop. Stores are looted and the police chief resigned. The police were defunded after a voted and later abolished entirely. Crime went up and even with the mismanagement of the twin cities the state decided to vote more democrats in along with Biden and Harris. Now we have more riots and looting, the city can’t hire any cops for work, and people are moving out in droves. You get what you pay for.

People are dying from the Covid-19 vaccines and we don’t know the extent of it. The vaccines were pushed through without proper testing and now we are learning they can cause blood clots. Of course, I was covering this back in January when they said there was no link to the deaths of people two weeks after receiving the shot. Now there are 6 confirmed women with blood clots with one dead. This also ignores the deaths in retirement homes, the doctor in Florida that died, and Hank Aaron who also died less than two weeks after receiving the shot. Add in others that are not documented and I guessing we are in the thousands for people who have died from the vaccine. During the 4-14-2021 episode of the Tim Pool podcast a super chat added that their uncle died from a blood clot after receiving the shot. There are more out there that we are not supposed to know about. You get what you pay for.

I could go on about the great many things that have made me laugh lately but the list is too long. A few honorable mentions include the coming tax hike from Biden, pulling troops out of Afghanistan and letting the Taliban and Al Qaeda move back in after their vacation in Pakistan for the last 20 years, the news media losing their viewers, and the Kardashians buying their own doomsday bunker. If that doesn’t tell you something I don’t know what will. If you are not paying attention I guess you get what you pay for.

Covid-19: a world of stupid

I took my daughter to the mall the other day. The family drove to Traverse city and while my wife shopped at the Target store, I decided our oldest daughter should see species that is going extinct, the mall. I wanted to see how many stores had closed and house soon the final death throws would be seen in this particular animal. Target was crowded, social distancing, optional.

In the mall, there was vast space to move and breathe. Shops had signs posted about the number limit on customers. Victoria’s Secret had a robe across their mall entrance telling customers to use the outside entrance to shop. The real kicker came when we reached the end of the mall where a small playground was set up. The entrance was closed off with a gate and signs were posted the entire 360 degrees around it saying it was closed due to Michigan orders from the Governor. My daughter climbed over the wall and started to make her way to the fiberglass tree with a slide. Two middle aged, beer gutted, old men watched from tables as my daughter defied orders like the rebel that she is. She was the only kid in eye sight, who was she harming? As I noticed more people watching I called her over and pulled her out to hear a wail and scream as she yelled that she wanted to play on the tree. I explained to her that the lady in charge was an asshole and that she couldn’t play on it because of that.

We made our way to the food court where there was a different Covid-19 world happening. Electric cars that kids ride in were open. The type that rocks back and forth making a kid think they are driving, for a dollar a ride you could do that. The photo booths to take stupid pictures that you regret later, those were open. The carousel that you could ride for a dollar, turns out that was open as well. The carts that you could rent to haul your kid around it, parked right in front of the security office, for some reason that was shut down. A sign was posted over the paying system that they could not be used. However, before leaving, I spotted a woman pushing her kid through the mall with one of those carts. Either she could not read or did not give a crap. Actually, thinking about it now, good for you lady, you keep on with your bad self.

As I waited for my wife, Zoey climbed all over the cars pretending to drive. Other kids came over and they chatted from their cars like adults at the stop light. When I bought some food from the Chinese place, I had trouble finding a table that wasn’t covered in food and muck. The Carousel was open after our meal and Zoey was able to ride on a horse. Each horse was marked as used and wiped down afterwards. Beside American Eagle who took customer’s temperatures before entering, this was the only part of the mall following protocol. Zoey threw a fit when the ride was over and we waited in the entrance for my wife.

Not once did the cars get wiped down while we were in the food court. None of the photo booths were cleaned after they were used. Security walked past people not wearing mask and said nothing. The mall was a strange bizzarro world of backwards policy and lack of procedure that left my head hurting.

One of our first stops in the mall was the arcade. This was a little corner shop with two entrances. Both of them had signs asking people to scan their phones in before entering for contact tracing incase there was an outbreak. I ignored it and walked inside. Zoey rode on the small carousel that was in there, pretended to play Pacman and we walked out not seeing another person in the area.

My only regret upon leaving was not letting her play on that fiberglass tree. I have read the stories about dads being arrested for playing at a park with their kids. What was the worse that could happen? We get kicked out?  If you asked me six months ago if covid-19 was a hoax I would have laughed and said those people are stupid. Now, with hearing the people in charge consistently say or do things that under mind everything they have been saying about the virus I have to consider, maybe all of this is just a hoax for an evil purpose.

Lately there has been talk about how the flu virus has somehow disappeared this season. I call complete BS on that. Hospitals have not been testing for it and anyone who has flu like symptoms are diagnosed with Covid-19 even without a test being done. Lab technicians have reported finding Strains A and B of the Flu in Covid-19 test but not the Coronavirus that had been confirmed before. Dr. Fauci has been pushing the idea of double masking not because of the science but because it is “common sense.” Political leaders hold large gathers at places like the French Laundry spending hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars doing the same thing no one else has been allowed to do for the past year. Then we learn that the WHO discovered that the virus did not originate in China but they also never checked out the lab that some people question the virus might have escaped from. When it comes to Covid-19 none of the dots line up. We are looking at different puzzles from different books and no matter how you over lap them nothing connects. If this is a hoax it is the worse thought out, brainless attempt and changing society that they could have come up with. After all the back and forth, all the denial, lack of confirmation about anything I can only conclude that this whole ordeal is based on BS. It’s only common sense and if the doctor in charge can create policy using common sense over science why can’t the rest of us?
