None other than Ed Arditti breaking the news that the "People Will Decide" ballot initiative WILL appear on Michigan ballots in November.
"No motion for rehearing will be entertained"
Oh my, doesn't THAT put a kink in the nerds plans.
Plans? What plans? There aren't any steenkin plans! er.. at least that we will be able to discover.

Pay close attention, easily duped Governerd fanbots.
Unfortunately, CATO pulled its punches on ObamneyCare much like have the goofy edge-nibbling Health Care Compact proponents. The right way of addressing Federally administered RomneyCare for all?

It's yet another pretty sad day for the "DELE-GATE" tattered MI-GOP when even a slippery goonion labor propped up turd like Richardville is cut out of the loop by the Governerd.
via The Detroit News
Despite a big grin on his face, Gov. Rick Snyder sidestepped questions Tuesday morning about a possible announcement this week on an agreement to build a new bridge to Canada.
Bull. Sh!t! It's more than obvious that this shady Canadian schemed Public Private Partnership, Chicom and NAFTA entwined goonion labor payola boondoggle Bridge deal being foisted upon U.S. taxpayers by the Governerd, Prince William Clay II, and LaHood just has to reek to high heaven. Frankly, I'm not so sure anymore that if we all ended up with a Gov Bernero instead of the Ann Arbor Nerd, that 'ol Virg would've been as brazen and as slimy in this unnecessary bridge as Ricky Ardesta is. As much as I hate to say it, even a lame-duck Jenny the now Wartless wasn't this devious and clandestine when pursuing it as the DRIC.
TEA movement folk, y'all might want to be seriously scouting for a Governerd primary challenger now.
In fact, go ahead paint the windshield black and hit the gas.
The Governerd has drawn the line in the embryonic muck used in our universities. He doesn't want the details of taxpayer funded stem cell research to be TOO transparent. From the Ivory tower:
"Republican Michigan legislators who are trying to force the University of Michigan to provide details on embryonic stem-cell research have a big hurdle to overcome: Gov. Rick Snyder.
Of course such transparency might reveal even more of the dirty little secret known as Detroit with its status as abortion capitol.
My goodness we hate to see little shredded blobs of plasma go to waste. Golly if those mean ol Republicans would just stop nosing around where they aren't welcome! Just give the money and shut up already.
Anyhow, had to put it out there. Stay tuned.

Left or Right, on this issue we should agree.
The troubling revelation that Michigan State Police have the tools to so completely violate a person's 4th amendment rights, has both the ACLU and conservatives concerned, and rightly so. The hand held machine available to officers can scan and retrieve a complete inventory of cell phones information, including pictures, text, email, and phone records. From the manufacturer's site:
The Cellebrite UFED Physical Pro is a high-end, all-in-one solution for logical and physical extraction. The UFED Physical Pro expands your current device capabilities to extract deleted mobile device data, user passwords, file system dumps, and physical extraction from GPS devices.
Under no circumstance would these be appropriate tools patrol officers should be carrying. It seems imprudent that a patrol officer should need to carry such technology for common stops, traffic enforcement, or assisting motorists.
Further troubling, is the reticence of the MSP to provide a modicum of transparency sans a very high fee. Likely violating the intent of law.

Have you ever looked at your city's budget? How about the county? Or the state? If you haven't, I encourage you to go online and check them out. One word seems to echo in comments and debates about the recent WISD Millage Proposal...TRANSPARENCY. But it's not just about the schools; we need to demand transparency regarding the use of all public funds.

We talk so often here about the things that are going wrong in Lansing and what the tax-and-spenders are up to that I think it's important to check in with the good guys from time to time to get their take on the issues facing taxpayers and the legislature today.
The GOP House minority continues to sponsor and introduce legislation, to work behind the scenes and to try to figure out some sort of positive solution to this tax-hike / budget mess.
We rarely hear about that in the MSM.
Being a member of a legislative minority makes it tough to garner headlines. But they're working hard and they're trying to make a difference.
This week I spoke with Livonia's freshman Republican Representative John Walsh.
Interview after the break...
