Well, it's sorta new.
For 5 good years, I blogged at PoliticalByline.com and on October 31, 2011 I closed up shop and the domain went black. My host jerked me around and I was going to quit.

I'll be hitting the blog list cull and add session again soon enough, and figured it would be a good time to highlight a couple of our Michigan based blogs.
One that I am glad to see back up and regular is the Hall of Record. A Natural Solution to Our energy Needs today talks about the use of Natural Gas for vehicles. I have commentary, but will share it when there is a field to place it in. (Hint)
The Blog of Bodnar hits the national interest Republican presidential results of Iowa in Iowa Is Over Whats Next? Take a breath. Indeed.
Jack McHugh at CapCon picks up the right to work story recently highlighted by Mitch Daniels of Indiana. Strong Support for Right-to-Work Measures in the Michigan Legislature reminds us that there are folks in Lansing that have been actively pursuing this even over the fear of the nerd and senate majority leader.
Could cities in Michigan be the next to "ban the box"? The Wizard of Laws considers it in America's Newest Protected Class -- Felons! Keep the Crystal Ball warmed up wiz, and maybe some alka seltzer on the side. We'll need it.
Conservative First has been gracious enough to pass a few gems over to this forum in the last year. A few of them you may not have seen, but he highlights the best over at the Western Right.
Update [2012-1-5 7:29:0 by JGillman]: I HAD to add this. God Bless you Rose. Wayne County Taxpayers - Recalling Recall and Senate Joint Resolution 5 I am with you.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas.
The Lions did a nice job on Christmas Eve, and the goodies that always seem so plentiful this time of year proved once again, that being full doesn't mean you have to stop eating. Christmas day was spent recuperating.
Getting out of the year thinner? Not an option.
Our newest thinning of the link love will start with the removal of Keepin' the Faith blog, which had as one of its last posts in 2009, a question: What is Conservatism? Among the answers:
"Conservatism is a group of core principles, or virtues, that are not solely political. Conservatism plays out in a broad political sense that takes into account the 'whole person.' We value the spiritual, marital, ecclesiastical, economic, social, and moral aspects of individuals live. We respect these, and many infinite more, as criteria necessary for an individual to determine his or her own happiness.
The next removal is the blog of Kevin Elsenheimer. Kevin is a good conservative who's political end came as the result of a timely newspaper blow up of a non issue during his narrowly lost run for a district judgeship. His blog hanging in the nether, and no longer updated Kevin Elsenheimer's blog" is now gone.
Not posting for over a year, Life with Mr. O is off.
That's it for the this round.
