    The regulators of Michigan's Utilities have deemed that Northern Michigan has no need for additional energy.

    That means that Northern Michigan will continue to have to buy electricity from downstate and other states to meet the energy requirements it currently has, as the electric co-ops have been doing, and for the foreseeable future.

    It also means that Northern Michigan's stagnant economy is assumed to remain stagnant, a bet the State of Michigan is insuring.

    Because the State of Michigan has no economic plan, other that managing it's own decline, Northern Michiganders can count on forever sending their children away to search for prosperity in another state.  Indeed, Northern Michigan's largest export is her children.

    It is no secret that Michigan is over-regulated, but the fact that it has been put down a path of decline by the authoritarian control of the Granholm administration in concert with the Sierra Club and other radical environmentalist groups interested in killing any hope for change in it's economic development, cannot be ignored.

    What it boils down to is that the Democrat Party is not interested in standing for the little guy.  From Al Gore and his demonstrably false attack on man, to Jennifer Granholm's inane wishful thinking of green energy supply, to Tom Karas and his dirty ties to radical environmental groups in California, it is obvious that feelings and hopes and wishes of a utopian society have replaced logic, science, jobs and results.

    The two schools of thought, one, that energy is produced to fuel economic freedom, and the other, that energy should be produced to strictly feed absolute need, are diametrically opposed.

    Economic freedom, an approach long abandoned by Michigan's leadership, is a quintessential goal sought in this state since it's inception, and is free-market based.

    The strangulation of freedom is what our state government excels at.

    Requests made by the Int'l Brotherhood of Electrical Workers were ignored.

    Requests made by the Cheboyan and Presque Isle Development groups were ignored.

    What the State has said, essentially, is that the small towns, the little guy, the union worker, have no right to enjoy high-paying jobs, to benefit their families.

    With the ruling on the permit, the State has manufactured false numbers to tell us `little people' that they are protecting us from a rate increase.

    Democrats have been throwing jobs out of state since the mid-sixties!  Taxing, legislating and spending businesses out of business has cost Michiganders their once highest Median incomes and has lead to Michigans current state of decline.  Unfortunately, with Democrats still in charge our once GREAT state has NOT yet hit bottom!

    The price of electricity can not "necessarily skyrocket" if there is an ample supply of electricity--simple as that.  This is but one brick in a huge wall being erected against future economic expansion not only here in Michigan, but in an entire America that this administration believes is not quite so exceptional.

    If greenhouse gas emissions are ever to be reduced to the levels being proposed by our nannies in Lansing and Washington, post modern man will need to relearn how to read by candlelight and travel by oxcart.  

    This brilliant decision just gives those of us in northern Michigan a head start.
