He picked the wrong side of the argument once again.
Saul Anuzis former RNC committeeman still has it in for the man who replaced him, OR he really does like promotion of homosexuality, and that which it carries in its side car. Either way, he has made his bed with Dennis Lennox, and other young progressives in the party who wish to pander to the baser instincts of the forbidden fruits.
But ignoring the results of such pandering and adjustment of social conscience to the legal protections we afford our youth is some bad Juju. Just ask prosecutors in Florida:
"The case involves Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt, an 18-year-old in Sebastian, Florida, who was arrested in February after admitting that she had a lesbian affair with a 14-year high-school freshman. .. It is a felony in Florida to have sex with 14-year-olds. Hunt was expelled from Sebastian High School -- where she and the younger girl had sex in a restroom stall -- and charged with two counts of "felony lewd and lascivious battery on a child." The charges could put Hunt in prison for up to 15 years. ..Rules, right?
Rules mean NOTHING when reason is toppled. In the above case, we see the natural progress of 'political correctness.'
And Saul's effort to vilify his esteemed replacement relies on just that method. By contextually abusing comments of Ronald Reagan, and confusing actual bigotry with a conscious disassociation to unhealthy lifestyles, he is solidifying his support for unhealthy, and nontraditional physical relationships.

The ongoing bleat from the lunatic of many convictions, presented without further delay, the entrenched homophile Twitiot.
Former #Michigan Gov. William Milliken joins Gov. @OneToughNerd in condemning #RNC's Dave Agema record-eagle.com/opinion/x12212... #MIGOP #GOP #MIGov
Some reminders of history, lest they be repeated, obviously need reflection:
1969-1982: William G. Milliken. Thirteen years in Office. Environmental extremist. Chummy chum chum's with perhaps the most corrupt Mayor of Detroit ever. But, it was smart of 'ol milquetoast Willy, that was his voting base. Kerry backer... Granholm backer... Obama backer... As Paul Ryan would say about Newt Gingrich, "With friends like him..." How this twaddling old tool still keeps calling himself a Republican is beyond disgusting.
Now, wayward, petty, and pedantic child, you carry on with that polarizing the MI-GOP into obsolescence.
I stand with Dave.

As one of those who think that traditional newspapers still have a place in small towns, from a forum and accountability perspective I have made the offer to salvage one particular fish wrapping.
The Traverse City Record Eagle is one of those papers that persist in perpetuating the belief that the news is slanted, and editorial bias is more important than actual news. The editorial page is even worse with frequent attacks and letter limitations that would make the casual observer think this is a leftist community; a non truth if ever there was one.
One of the results seen in a community that is still conservative, and mostly traditional, is that the profitability of such enterprise can be lessened to a degree which puts it continuing viability in peril. The Record Eagle has become a leftist blog, as partisan and unreasonable as any out there. It is poised to attack opinions as soon as they are uttered, as long as those opinions don't jibe with their ideological perspective.
I am, as always concerned about collateral damage to a community that has such firepower, loose, and uncontrollable. Not from a censorship perspective, but one that recognizes the bullying done, and how it will in the end do a disservice to the community, and the owners who expect profitability from their acquisition.
On January 19th, I offered my services to Community Newspaper Holdings Inc., (CNHI) which owns this paper.

NEVER be afraid to state your case. Know your mission, and do it well. - Reposted from MTTM because it needs attention.

Nearly a full month out from the last commission meeting attended, their editorial writers attack once more.
The Editorial: "Gillman's rant shows his true colors" begins as a few others do; laced with hate, and front loaded with hyperbole:
"Former Grand Traverse County Commissioner Jason Gillman has always had an interesting take on public policy issues. Often factually wrong, or lacking perspective or just plain biased, but interesting."
As if using the word "interesting" alongside their claims of factual incorrectness or my perceived personal shortcomings allows them to escape the obvious slight to character from the start. Certainly framing one as a crazy uncle, or blathering idiot, makes it easier to libel freely with barrels of ink in the following paragraphs.
