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

LAPEER — Lapeer County Bank & Trust is warning both their customers and the general public about fraudulent “robocalls” being made to Lapeer-area residents saying their debit cards have been compromised and asking for debit card information.
LCBT is aware of “hundreds and perhaps thousands” of automated calls that were made to Lapeer-area residents…

On Tuesday night, March 3, 2015, our guest speaker, Mr. Scott Hagerstrom spoke about the Tax Proposal 1 on the May 5,2015 ballot. As part of his presentation he mentioned that our Rulers, I mean government legislators, in Lansing have voted to build a new $70 million Senate Office Building. Unfortunately, it will cost almost double that amount. The government will borrow money to build the building and the interest cost on…Continue

Pay More Taxes ?
On May 5th voters will go to the polls to vote on increasing the state sales tax from 6% to 7%. This is being publicized as a way to increase money to fix the roads that are in desperate need of repair. This isn’t as cut and dry as it sounds. In December, the Governor signed road bills from the Legislature that are linked to a package of 11 bills. These bills go…Continue

Rand Pac: Stop Common Core Petition
The Founding Fathers never intended the Federal government to run our
educational system. Under the Constitution’s 10th Amendment education should
fall under the jurisdiction of the states and localities. But big government
politicians chipped away at…

LAPEER — Unless his owners file an appeal Lefty will be put down. After listening to six witnesses Wednesday and Thursday, visiting District County Judge John Conover granted the Lapeer County Prosecutor’s Office’s motion to have the pit bull euthanized.
Without additional court action, Lapeer County Animal Control officials will put Lefty to sleep Feb. 19.
“No matter what that ruling is,” Conover said, “some of you are going to be…Continue

Disappointment does not begin to express my feelings about the amnesty issue facing our nation. When the Mulvaney/Salmon/Brat amendment was introduced to the CRomnibus spending bill that would block funding for President Obama’s amnesty policy, I was hopeful & encouraged that a solution had been found to stop our tyrannical leader from being able to implement the immigration amnesty law. My hopes were dashed to pieces when the House Rules Committee blocked all amendments including the…Continue

As I outlined in a previous post, GOP Michigan U.S. Representative Mike Rogers is abusing his office to cover-up incompetence and lies regarding Benghazi, in order to cover for his wife who was CEO of the British firm that was paid by the U.S. government for security in Benghazi. Rogers is abusing his office to protect his wife from lawsuits. The latest report released by a committee led by Rogers was called "garbage" by none…Continue

"A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest" wrote Paul Simon over 30 years ago in his song "The Boxer." That describes much of what's taken place in Ferguson, Missouri.
From the time Michael Brown was killed until now the media, the President and the protesters have heard what they wanted to hear. From the beginning the media [principally the left wing leaning media] told a tale that fit the template…Continue

Elections have consequences
In 2009 President Obama famously told Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a private meeting that “elections have consequences” referring to the 2008 election when Democrats won the White House and majorities in both the Houses and Senate. Unfortunately we have witnessed the consequences of that election for the last six years with devastating results.…Continue

NO MORE GAS TAX
The Michigan Senate just passed a bill that is on its way to the House of Representative for their approval (HB5477). You may want to contact your State House of Representative member and ask him to vote no on this bill. This bill will allow the state to increase our gas tax by about 1.2 billion dollars or an additional 9.5 to 15.5% per gallon, in phases over the next 4 years, according to the “Senate Fiscal Agency”. The gas tax now, a…Continue

There must be a shield surrounding the White House that's impervious to information until it becomes a part of the national conversation. Over the past several years Obama just didn't know about a number of things until he either read it in the newspapers or learned of it at the same time the news media learned of it. He just didn't know about the gun running scheme "Fast & Furious." He learned of the IRS scandal by reading about it in the newspaper. He had no knowledge about…Continue

Jonathan Gruber is the MIT Economics Professor who was recently exposed in video tapes stating that it was the "stupidity" of the American voter that allowed Obamacare to get passed. He gloated about how successfully deceitful both he and the Obama Administration were in getting government control of the health industry.…Continue

The election is finally over. The votes have been counted and more importantly the phone calls have stopped.
There has been a lot of discussion about the meaning of the results. The obvious answer is that the people do not like the direction our country is heading. If they did, they had the opportunity to grant one party control of all 3 branches of government. The results are most likely due to the electorate becoming uncomfortable with the extent to which the political…Continue
