You know you have a problem when your pets growl at you.
A recent letter to President Obama looks for the most part like things we have said for years. That the ACA is deeply flawed legislation which never had the appropriate vetting done, was rushed, and frankly will have negative impacts that were predicted, yet ignored. James Hoffa writes:
"Dear Leader Reid and Leader Pelosi:Don't you hear the whistle anymore Mr. Hoffa?
We warned you. We told you it was a lie. We advised against such socialist manifestations of public policy, but your boots on the ground guaranteed the demise of your "hard earned benefits".
And there isn't an executive order that would stand a constitutional test even by THIS liberal court which would support a carve out, or fix for this fundamental destruction of our way of life, Mr Hoffa. This president is not a friend to the United States, and the two you write to are fully owned by this corrupt administration.
The question is, will you put boots on the ground to support more of the same or follow through with what appears to be the spark of an epiphany? How many times will you allow the master to kick you.
Before you bite his leg.
Go ahead. Do it.

I could not possibly agree more with Senator Cruz. And, that's the problem. The Sea of Red sent in 2010, has lost my trust. Remember 4/10/2011: "By the way Neil, they're [House Republicans] 100% of the spending bills and taxing authority under the Constitution. They can stop whatever they want to stop."
Bonus: it's good to read that Priebus is backpedaling on his spineless reach across the aisle herd (ya, it's about as politico speak squishy as it gets without full omission of being complicit). Nonetheless, Ted Cruz forced Reince to put those cards on the table - Cruz, like Reagan ultimately did, Eleventh Commandment be damned!

Gramsci is smiling. See context of C-5, and all of E and F.
This is also where blogger Jen derails her street creds too.
As many of you know, the new body makeup gives new life to rule of law.
May 25th 2007 was an important date. Remember this.
So was the day the lights were turned out in the house early August of 2008.
The 25th of May was a discovery date for a certain member of Congress. It was the date that a certain high ranking congressman discovered the radical potential of wealth that could be generated by high gas prices. IF.. one holds an interest in breaking Natural gas technology that is.
So, who wants to be a hero to the Michiganders who instead of paying their mortgage, filled the tank to get to the job that was about to go away? Who would out of the gate, set their sights on the person who for the sake of profit, broke the back of the American worker already on the ropes from a declining average income? And, who designed and capitulated in 'green' contrivances which had little effect except the destruction of an economy that once seemed unbreakable.

Michigan has its share of "collaborators" with the Obama Pelosi plan of destroying our economy.
One of them targeted by Americans For Prosperity advertising is Mark Schauer..
But next to Schauer's capitulation with the leftist agenda is the liklihood of that by 1st district seat contender Gary McDowell. (below the fold)

The recent play by Speaker Pelosi to call back legislators for that last bit of "work to be done" was an obvious ploy to satisfy big labor concerns and get those checks written for Democrat candidates that are facing a presumed SLAUGHTER in November.
Everyone knows why she did it, but without the proper context, its hard to argue against such things as continuing pay for teachers who are "going to be laid off," or what it might actually cost us in the end. A look at whether or not teachers might be laid off has been done before by Michael Van Beek in his Series for the Mackinac Center:
"Finally, union contracts dictate that school districts notify employees of potential layoffs prior to the end of the school year. As a result, many more "just in case" pink slips are issued than the actual number of layoffs. Not surprisingly, the warnings get more attention than their later non-execution. In fact, the actual student-to-employee ratio of 8-to-1 has remained unchanged over the last 10 years."
In other words the mewling by the MEA generally serves to win its its political game more than the practical ends, as the perennial situation has remained the same for a decade.
But there is still an issue with the state accepting more in funds from the federal government.
