In a race that contains a record number of candidates, voters have their work cut out for them in preparing for the Nov. 3 special primary election ballot for Lapeer County’s 82nd House District seat.
Eleven republicans and three democrats whose names will crowd that ballot are vying for Lapeer County voters’ attention. In truly American style, voters have a plethora of choices and we think that’s a good thing. Competition is healthy and, from our perspective, voters…Continue

Here is an article from Breitbart.com regarding Disney firing American workers and bringing to the USA, South Asian workers to replace them. The American workers were told to train the foreign workers or they would not receive any severance pay. Also, the foreign workers were instructed to video/audio record their time with the American workers:…Continue

There has been a lot of recent controversy surrounding the confederate flag. We are in the process of removing it from all public display, use, sale, and possession.
I must point out that this fervent activity is about much more than removing this one symbol from public life. This is merely the opening pretext that will be used by radical historical revisionists for removing other symbols of our American history and culture.
There are now calls for the cleansing…Continue

There are those, however, who know what it really means. Originally established as Decoration Day, a day to decorate the graves of Civil War dead, it has evolved into Memorial…Continue

MAY TEA PARTY MEETING SUMMARY
As you may expect the big news this month was the resounding defeat of the increase in the sales tax from 6% to 7%. May I say thank you to all those who took the time to vote. When we work together good things can happen.
At the May Lapeer Tea Party meeting people’s concerns about fracking in our state was heard and discussed. As you may know fracking is a form of extracting oil and gas from the areas in the…Continue

The polls open on May 5th to vote on Proposal 1. This proposal will determine if the sales tax is raised from 6 cents to 7 cents in Michigan. If you think this will never pass, don’t count on it. One of the problems is when people think like that and don’t bother to go to the polls to vote. Those in favor of it passing are counting on it! The fewer people going to the polls may just pass this bill.
There are so…Continue

My opinion on the Proposal 1 Road Funding is that it is not a road funding proposal and does not even meet the criteria as a well thought out proposal. It is up for vote because Lansing could not agree on funding and left it up to the voters. Further, it represents a failure of the Governor and Legislature to do the job they were elected to do. Only a slight majority of the $2 Billion it raises goes to road funding, parts of this proposal go to increased educational funding,…Continue

The Blaze.com has an article ranking states according to the value of services received vs. the taxes paid. Michigan ranked 46th, meaning there are only four states that are worse than Michigan. If Proposal 1 passes, Michigan will probably have the disgraceful stigma of being the worst state in the nation for services rendered vs. taxes paid.

Michigan is Taxed Enough Already
The television advertisements make it sound like Michigan Ballot Prop 1 is Michigan’s last chance to fix our roads. It uses dishonest language to deceive us into thinking the gas tax will be eliminated. It does not say it will be replaced with a higher wholesale tax that Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan estimate will raise gas prices by about 10 cents a gallon, raise state sales tax to 7%, raise vehicle…Continue
