When it comes to conspiracy theories, I tend to take the advice God gave his prophet, Isaiah: "I'm warning you! Don't act like these people. Don't call something a rebellious plot, just because they do, and don't be afraid of something, just because they are. I am the one you should fear and respect. I am the holy God, the LORD All-Powerful!" (Isaiah 8:11-13, CEV)
But I gotta tell you; some of the "off the radar" developments swirling around on the periphery of the Michigan Dele-Gate fiasco have me wondering just what the hell is going on behind the curtains in those back rooms. And specifically one development has me intrigued.

This is one of those things that arrived in the email, and as many stories that seem so absurd, it nearly made the trash can immediately. Instead, I actually followed up and verified Michael Moore is attempting to engage school age children in a way that encourages their immature development to rise up and take to the streets, ala Egypt:
"We are, right now, living in an amazing moment of history. And this moment has happened because the youth around the world have decided they've had enough. Young people are in revolt -- and it's about time.
What he said. "effing amazing."

235 years ago today, the first shots fired that brought us this great country opened the revolutionary war. In the Battle of Lexington and Concord the first shots rang out between British and American soldiers, starting America's fight for freedom.
While we go forward talking about our liberties, and the efforts at Tea Parties in Michigan and otherwise, take just a few moments to change perspective to one that might reflect the hopes and aspirations of our founders as they defended their own liberty and freedom from British rule to become self governing.
If you are on the left.. challenge yourself to place your personal political ambitions in contrast to the sacrifice made by those who gave you the ability to pursue them. Consider seriously why you might support someone who says "I will not allow you free association" through blockage of right to work legislation. Isn't that quite un-patriotic?
Happy Patriots' Day Michigan.
