America's conscience is responding with strengthening itself against tyranny, while our governmental protectors now practice maneuvers in Miami, and Huston, that desensitize, and hone skills as is observed here.

Michigan Parents have asked for choices in their children's education and are now applauding our reform-minded legislature.
A shout out to Sens. Pavlov and Colbeck, as well as Rep. Lyons and McMillin for their part.
Lansing, MI -- As parents, educators and policy makers this week commemorate National School Choice Week, parent members of the Michigan Chapter of Public School Options.org today applauded state lawmakers who have helped make Michigan one of only four states in the nation to earn an "A" grade from the Center for Education Reform.
"Each of our children have only one chance at childhood and one chance at an education that will prepare them to take on the world," said Sandy Smith, Chair of the Michigan Chapter of Public School Options.org.

And the list of preferred results go on.
There is no doubt we will do our part to reach these outcomes. There is no question that we will vote our conscience.
A simple prayer.

Senator Roger Kahn earlier this year introduced SB 918, that has been shelved until the lame duck session. Insiders suggest that if Proposal 5 passes, the legislature would likely hold off on action of this gas tax of up to $0.40/gallon.
The ad focuses on the tough choice families must make as costs go up and income diminishes, and zeroes in on the gas tax specifically, which would affect those whom are unemployed and of modest means disproportionately.
Love the kid's eyebrow action... Nice touch.
