God Bless this great land of ours.
I wrote about messaging yesterday.
There was no better messenger than this man. Someone who spoke his convictions without fear of what the "other side" thought, and in the end, captured the hearts of those others, minus only a few who were so hateful, and make up the Democrat party elite today.
This great man can do more from his tomb through great video clips like this, than any occupier at the white house.
I know who my "write-in" will be for in this year's Michigan Republican Presidential Primary.

A great day half through in Holt, for the Michigan Conservative Political Action Conference.
Multiple speakers from the Reagan administration, and panels discussing legislative action, RTW laws Judicial accountability and transparency in government. Too much for one conference alone. Well worth the travel, a day spent, and the small admission that bought a great deal of camaraderie, and conservative fellowship.
I have video I will be posting tomorrow if possible with some great clips that drive home the points we talk about here on a daily basis.
as I type this, Justice Markman is discussing Ronald Reagan. Good stuff.
Keep an eye out, Ill have more up as soon as I can.

OK, nothing really unexpected from what I have scanned over in my free (somewhat limited ) time. The expected plays from the left and a couple of different ideas on how to handle perceived issues. I have a couple of select legislative pushes here that don't raise too much on the surprise meter. Perhaps we will see a few attempts in differing ways to move these first couple along, as they are likely to be shot down (can I say 'shot' anymore?) at first glance.
It seems we are always looking at ways of reducing the cost of operating our schools in Michigan, so lets be especially ingenious and put additional burdens on the schools themselves. That ALWAYS works:
4179 of 2011:
Yeah, I know, we should have language skills.. Lets make sure those kids have English mastered first perhaps? The problem in this country is NOT the lack of a second language, but rather the inability for immigrants legal or otherwise to speak the native tongue. For sure he wants our schools to straighten those heads full of mush up, and maybe make em a little less mushy [physically] OUTWARDLY. Nathan also wants those little fatties in grade school to pay attention to their calorie counts as well.. in HB 4180 of 2011.
Cause kids are just too big.. Like some cities.
Yep.. and Detroit's recent size shrink has brought about a new way to change presumption of causality.. below the fold...
