GREAT NEWS! According to forbes.com, the Ford Focus, assembled in Wayne MI, will become the most widely sold auto in the world this year, passing the Toyota Corolla.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder's right-to-work poll crash
"Snyder’s approval rating is at 38 percent while his disapproval rating clocks in at 56 percent. Last month, his approval rating was 47 percent, according to a PPP poll, with a disapproval rating of 37 percent, resulting in a net-28 point drop this month."
Let’s use this crisis to start banning guns, what’s next? We haven’t banned abortion, alcohol, knives, ect. Why guns? If someone had a gun at Sandy Hook the gunman might have been stopped while he was encountered in the hallway.
The gunman at the mall shooting when encountered by a ccw holder shot himself. Hmmmmm.
Most of these people are cowards and kill themselves when someone else encounters them with a weapon. Most of these cowards choose gun free zones to do their bidding.
I keep reading the shooter in CT. is a type of person commonly called a "Goth". So were the shooters in Columbine High School. These folks are easily identified by their black leather clothing, green or orange acrylic hair, with all sorts of metallic doo-dads sewn on their clothes or as parts of body piercings. Shouldn't they be monitored, even a little bit?
You know how it goes--you're buying gifts, decorating the tree, drinking eggnog--and then somebody has to go and do it--bring up that whole "religious part" of Christmas. What a downer!
Yep, that's how Nancy Snyderman, NBC's chief medical editor, describes what she dislikes about Christmas. As a member of a recent panel on the Today Show, Snyderman stated that "I don't like the religion part" of Christmas. "I think that's what makes the holidays so stressful." Snyderman would prefer to concentrate on the "green trees."
That pretty much sums up how media such as NBC have attempted to change the culture of the United States. That's the fight we have to continue to wage against an entertainment and news establishment who represent the anti-religious minority in this Country. Even though Obama doesn't want to admit it, the U.S. is a Christian Nation. The majority of people identify themselves as being Christians and the Nation was founded on Christian principles. Snyderman just doesn't want to be bothered with those pesky little facts.
A couple of years ago at my place of employment, a great deal was made of employees putting Christmas decorations on their office doors. Some of the liberal employees felt they were having Christmas "shoved down their throats." Apparently, allowing people who celebrate Christmas the freedom to express this activity didn't fit into the liberal mantra for "inclusiveness." The liberals were told that they also could put items on their doors to indicate their feelings about Christmas (or whatever holiday they might be celebrating). The information they posted made them look like heartless, insipid fools. (NOTE: Everyone of the liberals took advantage of the day off for Christmas.)
In response to the tragic shooting in Conn. today we will be doing a special show on Saturday morning begining at 8a (still only lasting 3 hours though). Guests will include Sgt. Tony Castillo of the Oregon PD, Supt. Renee Marazon of Maritime Acedemy, and Jodi Campbell of KidsPeace.org, she's the leader of the critical incidence response team. No gun talk just school safety and counselling
In the interview, King twice said it is "accurate" to say Gov. Rick Snyder explicitly warned him that Republicans in the Legislature likely would push right-to-work legislation in the lame-duck session if labor ignored the GOP majority in both houses, pressed ahead and filed petitions to place Proposal 2 on the November ballot.

You Hate "Right To Work" Laws More Than You Know. Here's Why
From: Mark Ames
TO: The Labor Desk
Date: Dec 12th, 2012
Quote from article:
"From now on, white women and white men will be forced into organizations with black African apes whom they will have to call ‘brother’ or lose their jobs."
— Vance Muse, founder of the "right to work" anti-labor campaign---
After 90 minutes of passionate debate, the state House of Representatives voted 58-51 today to pass a right-to-work bill for public employees. They still have to consider a bill for private sector employees.
Both right-to-work bills slated for House passage today have already passed the Senate. Once the House passes them, all is needed is Snyder's signature and Michigan becomes the 24th right-to-work state.
The University of Toledo will roll out its newest strategic plan on December 17. A friend of mine, who works at UT and has seen the plan, shared some of its highlights with me. Although it will be heralded as containing fresh ideas for the future of UT, a more appropriate label would be “Been there, done that.”
An institution that pays its three top officials a total annual income of well over $1 million came up with the following tired ideas for its strategic plan:
Re-establish University College—That’s the college that President Jacobs demolished a few years back. Apparently, it was a bad idea four years ago—but now—not so much.
Title change for non-tenured faculty—Full-time, non-tenured faculty will go from being called “Lecturers” to “Professors of Practice.” Most importantly—these faculty will now be given 3- to 5-year renewable contracts. (Translation: Jacobs can more easily terminate faculty in the non-science areas in favor of hiring more medical faculty.) Window dressing—for sure.
Divide the College of Education, Health Science and Human Service into several colleges—Remember when the colleges of Education and Health and Human Services were separate entities? Then they were combined? Now they will be separated again—this time into three colleges. I’d like to have the stationery printing contract for UT!
Enhance student internships and co-ops—Remember when Vik Kapoor did away with UT’s Office of Professional Experience Programs? Yep, like University College, the importance of experiential learning is back.
Remember the Chrysler guys smoking pot and drinking during their breaks. Well Chrysler was forced to reinstate them because as good union workers they felt they had a right to drink and smoke pot on breaks then go back and build unsafe autos. Here's the statement from Chrysler-Chrysler Group LLC acknowledges the reinstatement of a number of employees from the Jefferson North assembly plant who were discharged from the company in September 2010 after appearing in a local TV station’s story about their off-duty conduct.
Once again minorities brought to violence because of a government program. They all want obama money like promised http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2012/12/08/columbus-apartment-applic...
Watch again and again and again, and again, and again
What a great day in Lansing, Mi. Union represented State Troopers did what they get a union wage to do and pepper sprayed malcontents who can't stand the fact that the Republicans in Michigan have won the House and Senate and are pushing through legislation the voters demanded. Union thugs which represent a small percentage of Michigan workers, in fact the fewest since 1989, but they yell the loudest. This time they are not getting their way and tried storming the floor of the capitol while official business was being conducted.
I THOUGHT OBAMA ALREADY SAVED DETROIT
Thursday morning I will be talking with Michael LaFaive of the Mackinaw Center about Michigan's move towards Right To Work. According to the website "The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is a nonpartisan research and educational institute dedicated to improving the quality of life for all Michigan residents by promoting sound solutions to state and local policy questions." But I think we know it's big business and Wall Street banksters who fund it, right? so the research must be tainted.
Employing Ohioans for 25 years and going strong!!
the one I drove had 250,000 miles on it when I sold it.... Never put a nickel into it beyond regular maintenance.
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!
Go after the entitlements Mr. President! Walmart's six family aires own more wealth than the bottom 40% of America. Walmart is the largest receipt of government welfare. Walmart's everyday low wages cost U.S. taxpayers $2.6 billion annually in government social services for its poverty employees. Walmart, biggest corporate welfare queen in America.
