Sometimes you have to give credit where it is due.
This is not the call for an end to bloated government that abuses us, but it is a good start in examining the worth of programs that are designed to provide advantage to those in high risk areas. Looking forward, there are a lot of federal government programs that involve the states, that should be dealt with in like fashion. For example, Michigan is a donor state with our road taxes coming back to us less than 100% of what we send DC.
U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-CD10) recently sent a letter to the Michigan Governor Rick Snyder requesting that his administration and the Michigan Legislature explore possible options for allowing Michigan to opt out of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Miller said:
Or any number of other enterprises I would ask, but we can start here.

I miss the tea party events put together with a shoestring, non professionals, and true grass roots (and righteous) concern for our constitution under attack by this administration.
Though most is spot on, about half way through he really hits a great point. Watch for his note on "punishment" Also, the sign that reminded me of all the great signs during the Tea Party growth period; The one that reads "If you thinks health care is expensive now, wait till its free" warmed my heart with its truthfulness and insight.

Have you heard the notion that Common Core Standards don't indoctrinate? Well they don't. It's the curriculum that does the indoctrinating. Here's an example of social justice activism for 1st graders (in an English Language Arts text), courtesy of Oak Norton from Utah:

Remember this video posted on RightMichigan.com? Well, the results of yet another who has outlived his useful life in government rears its ugly head.
Ruben Chavez, Arthur Fisher, and Joshua DeLosSantos filed a lawsuit against Wayne County, Sheriff Benny Napoleon and deputy chiefs Dennis Richardson and Mike Jaafar of the Sheriff's Office over the June 15, 2012, incident.
This week is a tough decision. I could award this week to a lawless Benny Napoleon, however, I'm confident he will have another opportunity while running for mayor of Detoilet. I could also go with a deadbeat mooslime shyster but, deadbeat, thieving mooslimes are so common.
So, this week goes to another fossilized white dude clinging onto his power. Congratulation, Judge Patrick J. Duggan. For your flagrant violation of our U.S. Constitution, you are not only a dhimmi, you're also A$$hole Of The Week.

The vote to repeal Obamacare like the original vote was decided along party lines sans two Dems who acknowledge the catastrophe their party has wrought.
All of Michigan's Republicans stepped up to the plate to 'repeal' the 'affordable' health care act, with a couple of them making sure you know they did. It marks the third time the House has voted to fully repeal this law since 2011. Rep Tim Walberg (R-CD7) voted in favor of H.R. 45 to repeal the President's health care law, and said the following:
"The reality of Obamacare is millions of Americans losing access to their current health care coverage, job destroying tax hikes and mandates, and massive health insurance premium increases. This government takeover of health care will hurt families, hurt small businesses, hurt retirees, and hurt Americans seeking to find work in our tough economy, so I voted today to repeal it. I support common sense, patient-centered solutions such as ending lawsuit abuse, expanding the flexibility of medical savings accounts, and allowing the purchase of insurance across state lines, that will truly make health care more affordable and help families."And he wasn't the only one.
Fred Upton (R-CD6) heads the Energy and Commerce committee, which uses the platform to examine the costs of Obamacare (and actually uses THAT Name for it, which I find inappropriate and strange)as reported by insurers.
Candace Miller (R-CD10) referencing previous appropriations efforts alongside the repeal vote says:
"There is nothing more personal to each and every American than their health care and their relationship with their doctor. And no issue is more important to each and every American than having a growing economy and job security. Today the House acted for the 37th time to repeal ObamaCare because it puts at risk the doctor-patient relationship and it will destroy jobs and put countless others at risk.
And Dave Camp (R-CD4) listed a few reasons a couple days ago why repeal is a good plan.
