Seriously, No Joke.
Gov. Rick Snyder will call in federal reinforcements to help convince a recalcitrant Republican-majority Legislature to accept money to expand Medicaid.
Exactly how many "skunk work" projects does the Governerd have, Rich? TEA folk, if being the target of the IRS isn't enough to rally a display of Gadsden's, then this fifth column Progressive Nerd within the state Republican Party bringing in the most corrupt White House our nation has ever seen to browbeat our representative voice in the legislature had best activate your presence in Lansing, post haste! Stand with them - they stopped the Nerd.
Bobby Schostak, your silence with Snyder's Obamacare entanglement demands is appalling. You're a complete disgrace as Party Chair.

Though not 'Michigan centric', this is far too important to not have on the front page of every blog. - JG
"This week marks the 40th anniversary of the Watergate hearings. For those of you too young to remember, back then the administration had an enemies list. They were spying on reporters, and they used the IRS to harass groups they didn't like. Thank God those days are gone forever." (Jay Leno, circa last week)
Jay Leno may yet accomplish with President Obama what Johnny Carson did with President Nixon, in that JWC turned RMN into a national laughingstock, and thus greased the skids for Tricky Dick's premature exit from the White House. We can only hope that JDL can accomplish the same with BHO before February 2014 rolls around.
Four scandals, count them, four. Benghazi, the IRS's thuggish behavior, the DOJ wiretapping the AP, and the EPA's selective fee waivers. Those are just the ones that are currently "front-page news." There're plenty of others from the earlier years of this Administration (Operation Fast & Furious comes to mind), and there are likely others not yet brought to light. Solomon had it absolutely right when he said that there is nothing new under the sun.
The more I hear or read about what's going on, the more I find myself in agreement with Speaker Boehner: I'm not interested in who's losing their job over this; I want to know who's going to jail over this.

It may seem like old news, but let's begin by asking one question. How did your mother teach you to sneeze? Cup your hand over your mouth and nose (with a tissue, if possible) and sneeze into it. As any three year old might ask... why? I'm sure she said it's because you want to keep your germs to yourself and not make someone else sick by spreading germs around the house or in public. It's because something may come spraying out of your nose also. Sneezes are unpredictable in these ways, and a cupped hand is really the best way to contain them in a pinch. "Eww!", you might say. All that in my hand? But hands are very durable things, and the dirty little secret is, you can wash them. This technique has lasted for centuries, passed down by oral tradition one undiseased generation to the next.
The Anatomy of a Sneeze is some 40,000 droplets of germ-laden spittle and mucous travelling at 100 mph a distance of some 32 ft., sometimes repetatively. (Ooooo, how scarey!) Containing this little sickness-bomb is exactly why a proper technique must be used to protect the health of others. But manner and etiquette has always been handled by parents to children. Then, suddenly, upon the election of Barak Hussein Obama, and the appointment of uber-Progressive Kathleen Sebelius, all of this changed as if it had always been this way. Between charts in school and public service announcements (propaganda) by no less than Elmo of Sesame Street, the public was instructed to sneeze into the crook of their arms, essentially on their sleeves. Didn't our mothers teach us NOT to wipe our noses on our sleeves?
