Somehow I doubt that if the Democrats in prison (given a higher incidence of Democrat criminality, I use them in this example) were to claim they should be served no-fat lattes, it would be laughed at. At what point does a political ideology of a prisoner dictate how we feed him or her? From the Ivory Tower:
"A federal lawsuit was filed today against the Michigan Department of Corrections, alleging several Muslim inmates aren't getting enough "nutritional" food during the month-long fast of Ramadan and are being forced to eat foods that violate their religious beliefs."They can eat the swill the others are eating. They ARE criminals, right?
Consider it a part of their debt to society. The Michigan department of corrections should not cave under any circumstance to this type of suit that is meant to undermine the operations of our prisons. Rewarding this group CAIR and the dangerous ideology they represent by acceding to their demands, is unnecessary, and dangerous policy capitulation.

Now this is unbelievable. A couple of Marines decided to treat a few dead Taliban terrorists to a good old fashioned "golden shower."

As one of the first to adopt the tea party monicker in Michigan, I have been more than happy to be a part of that restorative movement in correcting the way things have been "progressing."
Who was the father of this revolution? It was not Ron Paul, as some might offer. Any other names not mentioned here certainly do not qualify, as it was Rick Santelli in 2009, who sparked a well fueled fire in his CNBC "rant" that frankly was the call to arms many needed. Though many were ready to march, protest and pressure, it was a matter of "who starts?"
In mere days after Santelli challenged Obama openly on CNBC the first tea parties events happened. I wrote about that cold first (feb 27th) event in Lansing Michigan:
"These folks.. these truly great folks gave up the time, packed up their kids, made signs, and showed how much they care for this country. Aside from the camaraderie and knowing you are with people who care as much about the country and the direction we are headed, there was no pay to be there, and no direct financial reason or reward. The motives are pure."
And as we have seen it was merely a start. All of those present were as surprised to see others who felt as they did. It was interesting as the eyes were opened that the media programmed expectations were proven false in the simplest demonstration. One which was planned in only 3 days. The picture above truly demonstrates RightMichigan.com was an early promoter too.
Conservatism found new life through the realization that the ideas that built the greatness of the country, this state, and hope throughout the world, were still held by a majority of Americans.
