Snyder uses pardon to erase lawyer’s DUI conviction
He knows the Oakland County man and even corrected a reporter’s pronunciation of Gocha’s name (Go-SHAY’). Gocha said the conviction was a “black cloud” that slowed deals with Wall Street bankers and limited international travel.   Alan Gocha Jr & Rick Snyder

I bet many convicted of drunk driving would like to “clear” up this conviction especially when it cost those with that conviction dearly in yearly insurance cost along with the court cost associated with a conviction such as this…

“I would really like to clean up a terrible mistake that I made,” he told the board in 2014. Gocha gave $26,500 to political action committees from 2011 through 2013. Gocha has connections to ETC Capital gave $275,000 to the RGA in October 2013, the group gave $276,000 to the Michigan Republican Party.

Common Core Scam: Conflict of Interest Politicians Using Our Children for “Wall Street Profits”

The Michigan lawmakers who voted to implement the common core educational standards in Michigan are using our school children for a money making scheme. Common Core Stop

Government is not a protector of your rights, or a servant of the people. It’s an Enterprise. It’s a system that has operated over the last 150 years, as a “for profit” activity, stealing the wealth generated by human labor.

This system of government has two goals…self-preservation and enrichment of its elected representatives, by assuming itself to be a legitimate thief for corporations and organizations who return the favor.

Common Core standards for K-12 students approved by Republican controlled Senate. The cowards in Lansing used a voice vote whereas the voting citizens cannot see who voted for or against when the Senate approved a resolution that allows the department of education to implement Obama’s national common core standards.

A “Voice Vote” means each Senator’s position on the bill is not recorded.

2013 House Concurrent Resolution 11: Authorize adoption of “Common Core” school standards
Introduced by Rep. Tim Kelly (R) on September 25, 2013, to authorize the State Board of Education and the Michigan Department of Education to spend money to implement “Common Core” curriculum promoted by an entity associated with the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers.

Top 10 Reasons to Oppose Common Core
http://www.freedomworks.org/content/top-10-reasons-oppose-common-core

Fight Is On for Common Core Contracts
With financial (Federal Funds) and policy incentives from the Obama administration, 45 states and D.C. initially adopted Common Core. This is akin to ObamaCare’s you can keep your health insurance plan and doctor only this is and you can keep your “Education” for your children too.

Bottom line is our children’s education should and must be left to the patents, teachers and the school board that the people elect not politicians for a money making scheme. As states race to implement the Common Core academic standards, companies are fighting for a slice of the accompanying testing market, expected to be worth billions of dollars in coming years.

That jockeying has brought allegations of bid-rigging in one large pricing agreement involving 11 states such as Mississippi where a contract to Pearson PLC sidestepped the state’s contract-review board, which had found the transaction illegal because it failed to meet state rules regarding a single-source bid.

Common Core Based On UN Education Program
The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have a program called “Education for All” that includes the same people and same ideas as Common Core.

The Global Fund for Education was formulated by the UN; “agreed to” by Barack Obama, funded by Bill Gates, and Common Core was imposed on the American people through Department of Education (DOE) funding schemes. ~ Jeffrey Kibler
http://www.knowthelies.com/node/9142

Common Core in the Communist Manifesto
Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.

People are being taxed to support what we call ‘public’ schools, which train the young to work for the communal debt system.

We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based “Education.” Examination of these planks reveals a very disturbing trend in America today!

United States Constitution Tenth Amendment
The Tenth Amendment helps to define the concept of federalism, the relationship between Federal and state governments.

As Federal activity has increased, so too has the problem of reconciling state and national interests as they apply to the Federal powers to tax, to police, and to regulations such as wage and hour laws, disclosure of “personal information” in record keeping systems, and laws related to strip-mining.

Melanie Kurdys: I attended the March 2-3 Governor’s Economic & Education Summit. Surprise, surprise, MEDC is a huge player in “fixing education”, paying employers to train their existing employees, paying employers to develop training programs for new employees, paying employers to participate in creating a “workforce pipeline” with programs in community colleges, high schools and middle schools.

MEDC is paying for equipment like welding systems, to facilitate this training. MEDC is a player in creating “a seamless system of human capital from Pre-natal to the workforce”.

While we have been watching the Education policy and appropriations legislation, this has been happening for about a year and a half. Tell me again why we elected this Governor? Common Core Rotten Rockerfeller

“SPOT ON ASSESMENT OF OUR ELECTED POLITICIANS”

Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice . . . you don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own, and control the corporations.

They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear.

They got you by the short and curlies‘. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying . . . lobbying, to get what they want . . . Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want . . . they don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking.

They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that . . . that doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting screwed by a system that threw them overboard 30 frigging’ years ago.

They don’t want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers . . . Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money.

They want your frigging ‘ retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it . . . they’ll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this frigging ‘ place.

It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in The big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe.

All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people . . . white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on.

Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means . . . continue to elect these rich bastards who don’t give a shit about you. They don’t give a shit about you . . . they don’t give a shit about you.

They don’t care about you at all . . . at all . . . at all, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on.

The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue stick that’s being jammed up their backsides everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it. ~ George Carlin

ALERT: On the “Faux” TeaParty Patriots of Michigan Facebook Group

My fellow Conservative Facebook Patriots. It seems we have a “fake” Patriot group among our midst! TeaParty Patriots of Michigan Edited

R Al Bain has been given the “boot” from the “Faux” TeaParty Patriots Of Michigan Facebook Group all because they can’t handle the truth. Administrator R George Dunn an avid Mike Huckabee supporter is behind this boot.

The truth of the matter is this group is nothing more than a Mike Huckabee supporter group and anyone who speaks against their beloved “Huckster” will be booted from this fake Patriot group!

This group should be renamed for what it really is a Huckabee supporter group for it surly is NOT a Patriot group!

Some months back another administrator Julie Grace Forster another ardent Mike Huckabee supporter did the same thing to R Al Bain because he didn’t support her candidate.

After several group members asked why I was removed from this group the above administrator stated: I just decided R Al Bain “needed a little time out.” This goes right along with the same mentality of the other establishment supporters.

It was only after this blow back by other members and questioning of this removal by many of the other true Patriot members of this group did one of the administrators re-add R Al Bain back into the group.

Is this a form of censorship? Is this along the lines of Nazism? Is this along the lines of Socialist and Communist? You make the call.

A comment posted on a thread in this group by Julie Grace Foster reads like this:

Julie Grace Foster – You repeat lies like Saul Alinsky expecting people to eventually believe them. That comment was directed at another member who doesn’t support her candidate.

I guess the truth backed up with facts and links are lies! Jed Clampet Tarnation 250 X 235

An Inside Look at What’s Wrong in the MIGOP

If anyone cares to look at the information in this report you will get a clear view of how the MIGOP is not serving its members or those who elect its so-called Republicans.

The bottom line is that those Republicans thinking that the MIGOP represents them and or the Republican Party platform including principles and values, you are sadly mistaken. Duress and Distress Describes the MIGOP

While I have compiled to much information as to post in this report after reading it you will have a real good grasp of what is really going on within the “good ‘ole boys club.”

It’s all about self serving individuals who care not for state, country and the Republican Party or what it is supposed to stand for but for self enrichment and a feeling of being a part of the corrupt club.

The MIGOP make no mistake about it has been infiltrated by the Democrats who left their Party because it had moved to far to the left. What we have now is nothing more than Democrats masquerading as Republicans.

Here’s a social media conversation where MIGOP “hacks” decided to exchange some unpleasant disrespect to newly elected Conservative Republican Representative Todd Courser. Snake-oil-salesman475

A so-called Michigan Republican “Scrubs” Constituents Comments

When the “truth” and the “facts” come out they don’t like it. My current State Representative and current candidate for State Senate Dale Zorn (R) Monroe, not only removed my “truthful” comment on his facebook Ad he has “blocked” me from making any further comments! Hmmm… Zorn failed we the people are michigan ad

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protects the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression from government interference. I guess Mr. Zorn doesn’t believe in this amendment!
http://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/first_amendment

Mr. Zorn’s facebook Ad shows him sitting with a group of seniors listening to their concerns. I posted two comments showing where he in “fact” voted in favor of taxing their Pensions with legislative links showing as much. So while he claims to be concerned with the seniors well being he is not being truthful with them.

The lion’s share of the burden bestowed on retiree’s, seniors and lower income citizens with Mr. Zorn’s “yes” vote on this legislation falls directly on them. By his “yes” vote the wealthy and politically well connected businesses get tax breaks that effect them very much . Tax increases on retirement income from pensions is hurting retiree’s and seniors in a graying state still recovering from the recession.

The links below will clearly show that Dale Zorn does not represent his constituents but the political Party Bosses he answers to. By putting Party politics interest over the very citizens he is supposed to represent is unconscionable! Zorn Advocates Tax Pensions

Study: 40% of Michigan Families Can’t Cover Basic Survival Expenses

Huge Decline in Wages for Michigan’s Working Families

Pay Falls for Low-Wage Men yet Women Still Far Behind,” found that real wages of Michigan workers have fallen by more than ten percent since 1979 for broad sections of the working class.

Hourly pay for low-wage workers of “prime working age” in Michigan fell 13.4 percent between 1979-2013, while pay for mid-wage workers of prime age fell 12.7 percent.

The collapse of wages in Michigan also illustrates president Obama’s and Governor Snyder’s “insourcing” policies, which involves pushing for lower corporate taxes and lower living standards and wages for workers in order to make American cities “attractive” for business. Snyder Obama Meet

Speaking at a Milwaukee factory in 2012, Obama celebrated the results of his and Snyder’s “bailout” policies in Michigan as a model for the rest of the country: What’s happening in Detroit can happen in other cities.

Declining work rates, stagnant wages, the rise of female-headed families, inferior education, and the arrival of millions of “immigrants” with poor education and low skills are little engines pushing up the poverty rate.

Study: 40% of Michigan Family Households Can’t Cover Basic Survival Expenses As Families in Michigan StruggleThe report commissioned by the Michigan Association of United Ways with research led by Rutgers University focuses on people whose earnings are above the poverty line but still unable to cover expenses such as housing, transportation and health and child care.

This is further proof that Michigan is NOT the “Comeback State” as proclaimed by the Snyder administration and more should be done to help and support working families in Michigan not just the politicians Business Buddies. I would argue Tax Cuts for their Business Buddies and Tax Increases on citizens is a huge factor.

Family Budget Calculator

EPI’s Family Budget Calculator measures the income a family needs in order to attain a secure yet modest living standard by estimating community-specific costs of housing, food, child care, transportation, health care, other necessities, and taxes. The budgets, updated for 2013, are calculated for 615 U.S. communities and six family types (either one or two parents with one, two, or three children).

As compared with official poverty thresholds such as the federal poverty line and Supplemental Poverty Measure, EPI’s family budgets offer a higher degree of geographic customization and provide a more accurate measure of economic security. In all cases, they show families need more than twice the amount of the federal poverty line to get by.

MIGOP Establishment “Elite” Has Set Itself Against Its Own Base

Article below the picture

A Constitution Scroll We the People 640 X 420

Some people just like to be led in circles. The Democrat Party has been transformed into a communist entity, please don’t take my word for it, just read the Communist Manifesto and then compare it to the Democrat platform and more importantly its actions. The Republican Party too is being hijacked away from its traditional core values, but by whom?

The answer is not very hard to find when you follow the GOP leadership’s actions. Basically both parties leadership is one in the same, one a little less socialist than the other. The “die hard” GOP rank and file is blinded by rhetoric, like the scene in the movie Animal House, “please sir, may I have another”?

The blind loyalty of the “faithful” GOP rank and file is the reason the GOP is wandering down the dark path toward socialism, you see the “peons” are the entities with the power to prevent the liberal takeover of the GOP; the problem presented is that the “peons” like to be lied too and led. ~ Jeff Andring former chairman of the Monroe County Republican Party A Sheeple Elect
