As usual, I awoke early this morning but could sense that something was different. There was an eerie silence outside. What was it? I know--I didn't hear the sounds of school busses stopping and starting. Oh boy, it's the first day of Sequestration and it's just as Obama had warned--schools were closed (probably for good).
I had the presence of mind yesterday to fill my car with gas--knowing that all of the stations would be closed. Driving down the Anthony Wayne Trail I noticed that none of the traffic lights were working-- yep, Edison had already suffered the consequences of the Sequester.
As I headed toward downtown I saw something that at first I couldn't identify, but then I could feel my heart start to pound with fear. My god! Sequestration has resulted in the zoo losing funding and the animals were running wild. I swerved to avoid a colony of penguins (okay--I looked that term up when I got to work) only to come close to hitting a group of illegal aliens who had been released from a federal detention facility and were hitching their way to Canada.
I scarcely know how to comment on this one. Except to say that we have some seriously demented individuals in charge of various parts of our national government:
The idea was, apparently, to DESENSITIZE police forces (via training) to shooting various citizens. Words actually fail me (and that almost never happens).
Well, just as Nancy Pelosi had warned, Obamacare needed to be passed before we knew what it included; and now some Democrat Senators are experiencing buyers’ remorse.
On February 14, 2013, an appropriate day for news about how middle-class Americans will not be eligible for affordable health care coverage to mend their broken hearts, the director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, testified in front of the Senate Finance Committee. You didn’t hear about how a group of Democrat senators were outraged at the failings of Obamacare on the dinosaur media? Nope.
I have provided some links to articles that explain the issues that upset these Democrat senators later in this article, but it can be summed-up by Senator Bill Nelson from Florida’s comment that “The people of Florida are going to suffer. I want someone to be held accountable for this.” Senator Nelson, do you own a mirror?
I was actually about to post the plea deal Jesse Jackson Jr. just made - presumably to stay out of jail. A poster boy of sorts for the ingrained corruption of Chicago politics, in which he was raised. But changed my mind, because the Democrats have demonstrated slavish devotion for decades to a truly wicked man (no longer with us) - Ted Kennedy. Jesse Jr. may finally turn to God and repent some day. Kennedy never did.
The best 6 minutes and 58 seconds a Detroiter could ever spend.
Remember the 2004 presidential debates? The dinosaur media portrayed John Kerry as an intellect and debater beyond compare. He would leave the dumbest man in the history of the world, George W. Bush, in his wake. Well, as often is the case, the media were clueless about and/or covering for the liberal Kerry.
Bush’s Yale grades were revealed while he was governor of Texas. His grade average at graduation was 77 percent. This helped to establish the image that Bush was stupid, which he carried with him through the 2000 and 2004 campaigns.
Conveniently, Kerry didn’t release his grades until after the election—and lookie here—he had a 76 grade average at Yale! They both were C students!
An article in USA Today from June 2005 stated that Kerry got four D’s in his freshman year; whereas, Bush only received one D in his entire four years.

I mean, seriously, is there ANYTHING that she doesn't lie about? She obviously went in there prepared to do an Oscar-winning performance. But the histrionics and lying are going to follow her into her presidential bid. Safe prediction: She will NEVER be president.
And thank you Rand Paul for questions and comments much of the public has had.
There are three things you can count on--death, taxes, and crooked Michigan Democrats.
The federal public corruption trial of former Detroit mayor, Kwame Kirkpatrick, continues. Among the evidence that has been presented during the trial is a text message sent from co-defendant, Bobby Ferguson, to Kilpatrick complaining about a contractor who wasn't cooperating with their extortion demands. The text message read:
“Walbridge is not playing ball, black man. These white folks need to be made believers that they are not in control.”
The two later extorted $5 million from that "white folk." (Thank god that blacks can't be accused of racism.)
The amount of money extorted from contractors who wanted to do work in Detroit is difficult to fathom. The trial has revealed scenarios where $90,000 was delivered to Kilpatrick--hidden in a vacuum cleaner; and one of Kilpatrick's female fundraisers delivered thousands of extorted dollars that were stuffed into her bra.
And now Federal prosecutors have filed a fraud charge against Michigan Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway. The charges relate to a scandal involving the sale of a Detroit-area home and suspicious steps taken to conceal property in Florida. She is a Democrat who was elected in 2008.
So you are being forced to testify about Benghazi and somehow you have to make the lies you told not seem like--well--lies. Your testimony will be viewed by millions of Americans, and you intend on running for President in 2016. You're not so worried about lying again--you and your husband are pros at that--but you look like a woman who's been put through the wringer and your pant suits just don't fit the way they used to.
That's the dilemma that Hillary Clinton was in and she came up with just the right solution--cosmetic surgery. A tuck here, some suction there--and even you can look like a human being--kinda.
Of course, you can't say that you are making some physical "improvements,"--that would seem vain. So you make-up a story about stomach flu and being weak and falling and getting a concussion and....
Tonight it's been announced that Clinton is being treated for a blood clot. That's one of the serious side-effects of any surgery.
I THOUGHT OBAMA ALREADY SAVED DETROIT
The other day I heard someone reference where the wealth exists in this country. So I decided to do a little research on the subject and it led me to the Forbes article “America’s Richest Counties.” I looked at the top ten richest U.S. counties and crossed-referenced them with their states’ Boards of Elections to see how they voted in the 2012 presidential election.
What do you know—the wealthy in this country are not Republicans. Of the 10 richest U.S. counties, 7 of them voted for Obama.
Further review also shows that 5 of those richest Obama-voting counties are suburbs of Washington, D.C.! You know what that means—our tax dollars are either directly or indirectly making people rich. And to add insult to injury, another of the richest counties that voted for Obama, Los Alamos County, New Mexico, gets its wealth from federal government spending at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Another point worth noting is that the 3 richest counties that voted for Romney were in states (New Jersey and Colorado) that went to Obama.
In most of the richest counties, the median annual household income is over $100,000, which means that half of the households make more than that!
Just went to a search engine to re-read & print out the M. Massie article on the Obamas, and lo and behold, the article has been hacked and the text "whited out", so that it cannot be read on-line. Interesting - so tried to re-read it here - nope, the entire article is now un-readable.
So, since I want at least part of the article to be "readable" here -- here is a re-post of the article (or the main part of it) from another website:
(you have to cursor down past the website header to get to the article).
In addition to the info in this link - as we all now know, Morsi Monster has granted himself dictator powers - at the same time as he holds out both hands for billions in American taxpayer dollars. And Mubarak is in jail for - what again?
The real truth is that rank and file Republicans - real conservatives - couldn't care less if the wealthy (making over $250,000) have to go back to pre-bush tax rates. WE DON'T CARE. McConnell & Boehner care only because 1) They are RINOS to begin with & 2) they are trying to please wealthy campaign donors - not us, the little people, who are the bulk of the Republican Party.
Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi - this is the only way to neutralize the liar in chief. He is hiding the truth about Benghazi (along with just about everything else affecting U.S. citizens).
