Michigan’s Civil Asset Forfeiture System Under Scrutiny

1835 Original Seal for MichiganMICHIGAN’S CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE SYSTEM UNDER SCRUTINY

[Received this evening via email thank you Greg]

Just to show you how tricky our public servants have become I have copied an article from the Midland Daily New below with the link to the article. I highlighted below in the article the reporters very important comment “That’s because someone’s assets are tried in civil court, separate from the criminal process.” Our public servants in black robes are using legal foot work to steal from the people.

V Amendment says “; nor shall be compelled in any “criminal case” to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;” However, it also says “;nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” , somehow the black robes feel they have a contract with us and have control over our property. Note how important commas and semicolons are in the law and the understanding of jurisdiction. Until we all learn some basic “law” this will continue un-checked.

Our Founders are turning in their graves and we should be fighting this with every breath. Bill Clinton is not the only “slick willie” in our public servants ranks.

4 U.S. Code § 8 – Respect for flag

american-flag 4 U.S. Code § 8 – Respect for flag
Current through Pub. L. 114-9. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)
No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
(b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
(c) The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
(d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.
(e) The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
(f) The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.
(g) The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
(h) The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
(i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.
(j) No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.
(k) The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

MEMORIAL DAY

God Bless America

Moment Of Remembrance

In 1996, a humanitarian organization based in Washington, D.C., known as ‘No Greater Love’ conducted a survey on children and asked them why do they think there is a holiday on Memorial Day. It was agonizing to hear their remarks that were all associated with barbecues and extended weekend parties and celebration, while they hadn’t the vaguest idea about the sacrifices of the soldiers in whose honor it is celebrated. One of the children was even quoted as saying that this was the day when swimming pools open!Thus, the organization came up with the idea of ‘National Moment of Remembrance’ to remind and especially, let the future generations know about the real meaning of the holiday. The idea clicked with the President and Congress and since 1997, it became a standard American tradition.
National Moment of Remembrance requires everybody to keep silent for a minute, exactly at 3.00 pm (local time) when ‘Taps’ is played and reflect on the glory of those who have shed blood for us. The federal government hopes to raise public awareness about the heroes and their valor by introducing this moment.

Twenty-four notes. It’s a simple melody, 150 years old, that can express our gratitude when words fail. Taps honors the men and women who have laid down their lives and paid the ultimate sacrifice for the cause of freedom. Fair winds and following seas, shipmates.

BIKERS PAY TRIBUTE TO VETERANS OVER HOLIDAY WEEKEND  by Phil Ford

IRON MOUNTAIN — The 11th annual Veteran’s Tribute Ride took off from Iron Mountain on Saturday.

Supporters rode their motorcycles to honor veterans for Memorial Day weekend. They started in Iron Mountain and made their way to the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center. There each rider took time to greet and shake the hands of veterans at the center. From there the ride stopped for lunch near Iron River, and ended up in Niagara for dinner and a raffle. Organizers hoped to raise $25,000 with this ride. Proceeds go to support local veterans organizations. 

“A lot of them can’t really continue without our support, veteran’s organizations are getting small, they need our support,” said Organizer Jim Starr. “We really feel good about having this event and raising the money and donating to those.”

Organizers were hoping the nice weather would help bring between 300 and 400 riders to the event.

The Solution To Regain – Really? By Changing Our Declaration of Independence?

1835 Original Seal for MichiganA couple of days ago I posted, “Do We Really Need to Rewrite Our Founding Documents?”  This post was written because of the below post from the Nesara Blogspot site.  Freewill is promoting a “New Declaration of Independence”.  Be very careful and cautious of those that claim we need to “change” our original founding documents. Read the comments below the post.  I do not know this Freewill or his intent but I do know that our founding documents need to remain intact as written.  Our culture is much to corrupt right now to even attempt to change a single word. The problem isn’t with the documents but with the PEOPLE!

A little history to ponder~ and the solution to regain freedom

When people first came to America to escape the crown, they settled into colonies. These people established their communities (assemblies), counties then states. These people resided on the land and assembled to self govern. This is how America was built. The crown tried to control and tax these people and wars were fought to reject the crown. The crown could not win with force, so the crown changed their strategy and infiltrated our government with their agents under stealth. These agents slowly transformed the government causing We THE People to be 14th Amendment citizens (slaves) residing on the land in a Federal fictional location. Because this fictional U.S. can not claim/own any land they could not use the laws of the land therefore admiralty law = maritime/merchant law was brought on to the land by the Supreme Court in Erie Railroad Co. v. Tompkins, 304 U.S. 64, 58 S. Ct. 817, 82 L. Ed. 1188 (1938). The land was unknowingly abandoned as all the people became 14th Amendment citizens by registering into this federal corporation through adhesion  contracts via licenses, social security numbers, birth certificates, voter registrations, and other adhesion contracts. Federal fictional addresses and zip codes replaced the abandoned rural mail routes, Federal Reserve Debt Notes replaced the gold and silver as our lawfull money/currency, therefore abandoning the law of the land completely and falling under the laws of the sea.

‘We the People’ Need to Circle the Wagons: The Government Is on the Warpath

By John W. Whitehead

May 12, 2015

“The government is merely a servant―merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn’t. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.” ― Mark Twain

How many Americans have actually bothered to read the Constitution, let alone the first ten amendments to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights (a quick read at 462 words)?

Take a few minutes and read those words for yourself—rather than having some court or politician translate them for you—and you will be under no illusion about where to draw the line when it comes to speaking your mind, criticizing your government, defending what is yours, doing whatever you want on your own property, and keeping the government’s nose out of your private affairs.

Letter to the Editor –

1835 Original Seal for Michigan

 

I do not know who this person is that posted this “Letter to the Editor” to another site. Since it is addressed to Michigan I’m posting it here for anyone that would like to contact this person.

 

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
The need for a new way of thinking of how our public officials work for us is necessary.
The Sheeple have been programed to believe that there is no way we can address or correct the abuses of office and power the government agents, a.k.a. Public Servant, who continues to deny our requests for reasonable service.

There are ways that this problem can and has been corrected in 9 different states and a hundred plus communities in our Nation.  We THE People of Michigan need to investigate and take peaceful reasonable action in conjunction with these other communities.

If this is of interest to you, then it would be good to have as many people in the community to assemble and discuss the possibilities at having an effect on these outrageous actions that offend and alienate us/We THE People of Michigan.

For more information, call 1-989-450-5522, between 2: PM to 7: PM Monday thru Thursday.

Do We Really Need To Rewrite Our Founding Documents?

Link

 

1835 Original Seal for Michigan

 

 

DO WE REALLY NEED TO REWRITE OUR FOUNDING DOCUMENTS?

 

It is time for We…. the people to be very cautious.  When we get desperate for relief from tyranny and want to be liberated we tend to get impulsive and don’t take the time to rationalize or critically think all options.  We tend to tag along with the first group that sounds like they are ‘well read’ and say they know what needs to be done. We follow and let them do all the thinking without question in most cases.

There is a New Declaration of Independence that is being offered to the people and the question that comes to my mind is, WHY?   Why do we need a New Declaration of Independence?  There is nothing wrong with the one we already have other than it isn’t being enforced!

The problem with a new Declaration of Independence or amending the Constitution is that legalese is worst today than ever and the common people cannot understand it so it is very easy to deceive the people in what it says and what it means. Not to mention the “hidden” extra’s that are usually attached to all Bills, Acts, etc.

The corruption is everywhere and runs deep and is usually accompanied with the most sincere faces that sport warm and friendly smiles, saying all the right things that we all want to hear, but beware!  Anyone that says our founding documents are flawed and need to be “updated” or “changed” are not restoring our REPUBLIC and I’d be suspect of underlying intentions.

Our founding documents are NOT flawed, nor do they need to be updated, they just need to be ENFORCED.  Those that are leading but are not enforcing our standing documents as they are written are not on the right path.

The national republic that has been around since 2010 with the original founder/president Tim Turner, and now has acting president Geiger is not suitable to follow.  They’ve voted in UN-Constitutional Bills such as a National Ranger (police) force, which is unconstitutional, they’ve also voted in “Digital Money”, again unconstitutional because in accordance with our Constitution our treasury is to “coin” money.  Digits can disappear or “lock you out” from your funds, and they are based on nothing the same as fiat currencies. They also changed the flag.  Their new design has the stars in a “globe”.  It is a small group of people that are creating their own government and calling it our Republic, it is not.

The group in Michigan that claims they have approval of The Hague and Michigan is the only recognized state is also corrupt.  This group established a TRUST in place of the Michigan Constitution and they made themselves the Settlors over the Settlers but I’m not going into all the details here and now.  They also set up a state bank based on this trust giving themselves the right to draw from it at anytime and paying themselves whatever interest they deem necessary, nice aye.

What I’ve stated above, I have first-hand knowledge of documents.  What I’m now going to say is my OPINION, a part from the above information.  It is my summation of what could be taking place.  The Michigan leaders are military veterans and have connections with???.  The national republic group also appears to have connections with???.  Now it is the thought (opinion) of this writer that the elites know they are in trouble. Naturally they’d have a plan B, C and probably more in the event things go bad for them.  So, the national republic has in accordance to “their congress” passed bills that the defacto congress would have been able to pass because they are unconstitutional and they even created a new global flag to fly.  This national group could quite possibly be in place for the rogue defacto government’s new cloak when their corporation finally is completely finished, which isn’t far off.

The Michigan group with their TRUST and established state bank would make another new secret home for the bankers to begin again.  History repeats itself again and again, and it always seems to be the same people that just rotate in the circle.

These are perilous times and there is much unrest across the land.  There are those that would like to align themselves to be the next generation of Kings and Queens over the people.  One of the most important tenants to doing this successfully is to get rid of our founding documents.  If they can rewrite them and get the people to accept this they can do anything they want and they will have total control with no recourse.   It would appear the elites have total control now, but they don’t; yes they have more than they should per our founding documents but the documents still restraining them from unbridled power.

Think long and hard before consenting to any rewriting of our founding documents.  They are the corner stone to this nation and if they’re able to be tampered with then we no longer have a foundation and our Republic will most certainly be completely gone.

The corner stone of our nation that these documents were written was Christ Jesus and this is why so many are trying to rewrite them or  better yet, shred them all together.  Our freedom comes from Almighty God, and Him alone.  These founding documents are the chains that bind and limit what would otherwise be a completely out of control tyrannical dictatorship, which is being established now, and more the reason why these documents as written need to be enforced.

Why do you suppose they still go through the charade of “elections” for the people?  They do what they do in secrecy because they know if the people truly knew what they’re doing, as George Bush himself said, “They’d hang us from a tree”.  (Paraphrased)

So, please do not follow anyone, be your own leader, do your own research but more importantly read the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. Study them for understanding then enforce them in your local communities where you have the most power and it will trickle down to the federal defacto … they’ve inverted the power ….it is We….the people… but somewhere along the path of life we’ve forgotten this.  Time to remember who we are!

The obvious question: what’s next for roads?

The obvious question: what’s next for roads?

by Nicole Sevrey

There’s still an obvious need for road funding.

Despite the foreseeable challenges ahead, some lawmakers continue to make transportation funding a priority.

Stakeholders like Farm Bureau are ready to get back to work, and are hopeful elected officials can devise an acceptable plan for consideration.

Several ideas have emerged in the days following the election, ranging from recycling previous transportation plans to more nontraditional approaches that examine restricted funds. Regardless of the approach, the real test will be crafting solid legislation in a way that will garner enough votes in the House and Senate and be approved by the Governor.

The Legislature may consider one of two big-picture approaches:

  • Examine existing revenue – Proposals could include reviewing, and potentially eliminating, certain income tax exemptions; or making budget cuts to other state agencies and services.
  • Create new revenue -Proposals could include gas tax or registration fee increase. Another option is a flat sales tax increase dedicated to roads, but historically the Legislature has been unable to pass such a measure.

“With any plan that comes forward, we will continue working with legislators and other stakeholders toward a solution supported by our grass-roots policy,” said Andrew Vermeesch, associate legislative counsel for Farm Bureau. “Our policy remains unchanged and supports several options for generating revenue for transportation improvements.”

The defeat of Proposal 1 will also have implications for the 2015-’16 budget, meaning there likely will not be additional revenue for the upcoming construction season.

Governor Snyder could also call a special summer session of the Legislature to address the issue, and a poll conducted by EPIC-MRA indicates 85 percent support the idea, that some believe would help focus efforts of legislators and stakeholders.

Specifically, Farm Bureau’s transportation policy supports:

  • User-based taxes for funding infrastructure improvements, provided the revenue generated is in line with maintenance costs and consistent with neighboring states;
  • A one-percent increase in the state sales tax dedicated to road funding;
  • Diverting all state sales taxes collected on motor fuels to the PA-51 formula to provide additional road funding, and a one-percent increase in the general sales tax to offset the loss of revenue;
  • Taxing other forms of energy that are used in transportation at an equitable rate.

America was given a Constitutional REPUBLIC, not a Democracy! ~Aaron Russo

America was given a Constitutional REPUBLIC, not a Democracy!

“The American people are living in a matrix. They don’t understand the truth of how things happen in this country. If you ask 100 people on the street what kind of government is America suppose to be 99% of them will tell you a democracy, America is suppose to be a democracy, but that’s a lie. That’s an illusion. The word, democracy” is not written in the Constitution one time, its not in the Bill of Rights, or the Declaration of Independence. The founding fathers “hated” the idea of a democracy. They thought it was the worst kind of government there is, and I agree with them. In a democracy 51% of the people control 49% of the people. If your part of the 49%, you’re not free. America was founded as a Constitutional Republic, and in that Constitutional Republic we have 99% of the people can take away the rights of 1% of the people. You have your rights because you were BORN with them. You have God given Human Rights that nobody can take away from you, not the government, the majority, no matter who they are, I can’t take away your rights, and that’s what our founding fathers gave us. But the psychological operations they do to us they make us believe we’re a democracy and that majority rules, you see, and they want you to believe that. Then they tell you this poll says this many want this and this many want that and and this many want this, and it doesn’t have anything to do with anything, America is not a democracy but ask the most intelligent people what government America is suppose to be and they’ll tell you, they’ll say a democracy because that is what they’ve been brainwashed. They’ve been psy-opted into that. They believe we’re in Iraq, They believe we’re in Iraq to vote democracy. The word democracy, you hear George Bush saying democracy means freedom. No, democracy equals New World Order. Democracy equals slavery. The word democracy is not synonymous with freedom.” ~Aaron Russo

Who controls the polls and voting? Those that control the pols and voting also control the outcome… and the numbers they give are a LIE…. GRASSROOTS AMERICA does not approve and support the corruption, immorality, and degradation this country has fallen to… it is another illusion… created to control people by majority rule.  They can do this because the “majority” of Americans do not know or understand WHO WE ARE… first and foremost… and it is more than just being American!

An open letter to the Board of Directors and Upper Officers of Mid West Energy.
To be read at the May 26 meeting.
It is good to go back to the coop you should have never left.
What has to be is this:  the Board of Directors can only be advisory and collect the information and submit it to the Member Customer for their Approval or Rejection .

The Member Customers must have the option to remove board members not
preforming correctly.
Once the member customers get control of things the rates should be
reduced. no more 3 card Molly or Shell Games with no Peanuts!!!
Anything else will be Commandeering and Racketeering,!!!!.
The Member Customer would be just like the township boards in Michigan where they can address the board and the board doesn’t have to listen. [Or so they think] The rogue agency referred to as the public service commission must be dissolved
and what needs to be done will be done by the elected state legislature like it should be where the people have the last word!!.

You can see very well by the May 5 state proposal election that the
people have had enough and will have the last word.
We would like to know why Midwest Energy is acquiring all these
Renewable credits when they have or produce no renewable energy?
The funds wasted by the public service commission could have put Midwest Energy well on its way to owning a renewable system.

Back in 2009 an article came out in the “Michigan Country Lines” stating
that Electricity will become a pricey Luxury rather than an affordable
staple, Midwest Energy has done a great job at making this happen.
The membership certificate issued when people apply for
service should be 1 share of stock in Midwest Energy rather than a
membership.

Member Charles [rest of name removed for privacy]

part of a letter from  my senator [Read complete letter below this post] Dear Charles,

Thank you for contacting me about the use of nuclear power.  I understand your views.

I am deeply concerned about our dependence on foreign oil and the impact of high energy costs on Michigan families. I support using a diverse set of power sources to alleviate our energy problems. Right now, Michigan’s top three energy sources are coal, nuclear power, and natural gas. Combined, these sources generate about 90 percent of our electricity.

As Japan continues to heal from the earthquake, tsunami, and catastrophic meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the United States needs to continue its work to better prepare our nuclear facilities in the event of a natural disaster.  Michigan is home to three nuclear plants, and it is important that these plants have stringent emergency plans in place for the safety and well-being of Michigan families.

In Michigan, we know that keeping power on for our homes and businesses isn’t a luxury but a necessity.  In the long term, we need to find ways to become energy independent by investing in alternative energy, renewable fuels, and other innovative technologies.  As the Senate debates these energy issues, including nuclear power, I will keep your views in mind.

Thank you for contacting me.  Please do not hesitate to do so again if I can be of assistance to you or your family.

Sincerely,
Debbie
Stabenow

County planning commissions illegal; McNeil: No rights granted to control private property

 County planning commissions illegal; McNeil: No rights granted to control private property

By Richard Crofton
richard@cheboygantribune.com

Posted May 22, 2013 at 12:01 AM

ONAWAY

If one man studying the law is correct, there could be a major change in county government coming.

One such change will be the elimination of the planning commissions.

“They claim jurisdictional authority over private property. That does not relate to county affairs,” said Bellaire, Mich., resident Kent McNeil. “A lot of them (elected officials) believe what they are doing is lawful because they are being told it is. It is our responsibility to tell them they are wrong. What we did is wrong by putting government on autopilot.”

McNeil spoke Saturday in Onaway claiming the county commissions in the state of Michigan are illegally set up except for Wayne and Oakland County. The 53-year-old man, who holds a master in criminal justice and is working on a juris doctorate with a specialization in constitutional law, said the state’s constitution lays out that a board of supervisors is to have an elected representative from each township and city, and not by districts as currently in place.

The term board of supervisors is constitutional,” he said. “There is no phrase board of commissioners anywhere in the state’s constitution.”

I like to be involved and I support the H.R. 546: ACE Kids Act since it helps improve care to kids with medical conditions. I reached out to a few of my representatives and I couldn’t do it without this resource (http://bebusinessed.com/congress-fax-numbers). It explains how to contact representatives and has very detailed contact templates on reaching your representatives in an effective way.

There is no reason that property should be going up every year when the buildings are aging and land prices are down, and the economy is in the dump.
These  assessor’s for hire go around the twps and charge for their services then come back to the local board and get the twp to pay for their update training.what a triple dip.
Remember every thing must be approved by the people.

Senator Proos,
You can see  by the election that the people have had enough so therefore we want to see
legislation to bring road tax dollars back to the roads and keep the tax dollars in the local government.
We have paid to have these roads fixed for many many years now it is time for you to bring that money back to where it originated even if the State legislatures have to take a pay-cut and benefit cuts to make this happen.
We also want to see the Public Service Commission disbanded and the legislature take that duty on again where the people can participate in the process.
The people are awaking and want no more ponzi skeems and three-card molly to make the money disappear.
You also have to get a real economy started again.

Proposal 1 Rejected – NO NEW TAXES!

1835 Original Seal for MichiganFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
5/5/15

Troy, MI – Tom McMillin, Chairman of Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan, applauded the outcome of today’s election but cautioned that taxpayers must remain vigilant as legislators weigh other options for fixing Michigan’s roads.

“The people have spoken, and it is absolutely clear that today’s vote was a resounding rejection of tax increases, not road repairs.  The Michigan Legislature must act swiftly yet carefully to resolve our road situation, and prove to their constituents they can do what the previous legislature could not: fix our roads within our budget.

“The taxpaying public never deserved to have this problem foisted upon them, but until the legislature develops a road funding solution within its budget, we remain concerned that this crisis of negligence might yet result in a taxpayer bailout.

“As a former mayor, former legislator, former Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, and practicing CPA, I will gladly and with sincere appreciation offer any counsel or assistance I can provide members of the Legislature to find savings for funding roads within current revenues,” McMillin said.

“Until the situation is resolved, Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan will continue to work to prevent unnecessary tax increases.”

Letter To The Editor

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

We THE People of Michigan have given notice to the Governor and Michigan Bar of the Peoples grand juries commencing investigations into the corruption and abuses of courts and public offices.

THE People established grand juries in several counties in 2011 – 2012 with published notices. Grand juries are recognized in the Bill of Rights in the Seventh (7th) Amendment and by U.S. Supreme Court rulings, the most robust being U.S. v. Williams (1992). Justice Antoine Scalia, writing for the majority, said, “It belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people…The 7th Amendment demands a functioning grand jury independent from the judicial branch with power to investigate criminal wrongdoing requiring no authorization from any court.”

People across America are working to return justice to our out‐of‐control courts and public offices. Attorneys and Judges have worked overtime throughout the past 100 years to destroy and hide from the People lawfull due process and grand juries, the very method that can return liberty to the People.

Attorneys and Judges say the Common Law has become outdated, obsolete and that the 7th Amendment Grand Jury is for the exclusive use of federal courts. Anyone with experience in the state courts will tell you that the “Bill of Rights” has been over-thrown by Attorneys and Judges who believe they are above the law. Only when the People become aware of this attitude and mind set of the legal industry will the People, through Grand Juries, be able to secure our unalienable Rights and Liberty. Call 1-989-450-5522, 2: PM to 7: PM Monday thru Thursday.

“ONE NATION UNDER GOD” WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

1835 Original Seal for Michigan

To me, it means the laws of this nation should align with God’s laws, and our founding documents do. Our Republic was based on biblical principle thus the reason we have, “One Nation Under God.”

 

ALL laws for this nation should be based on biblical principle, as it used to be before the falling away. The Holy Bible was the foundation of our country and what our Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence are founded on as well as earlier historic documents, such as the Magna Carta.

These principles were practiced by most of the people and made our country a safe and prosperous place to live. This is why people from other countries left their families and most of their belongings to migrate to America, land of the free and home of the brave where everyone had an opportunity to prosperity and happiness. When they arrived they were eager to learn our language and adapt to our culture. They were proud to become Americans.  Unlike what is taking place today with the illegals and refugees that are coming and being brought here demanding we bend to their culture, and we learn their language and fly their flag!

Our schools started the day with prayer to Almighty God in the name of Jesus. The Ten Commandments were posted in the schools to learn. Parents and teachers worked together to correct poor ethics in our children, as did neighbors. Our schools were safe and our children were disciplined and smart. Life was good. People were prospering, health was good and crime was down because the people “self-governed” so there wasn’t a need for an over-inflated police force and the federal government was still constitutionally small and exercised minimal power over the states because the states were constitutionally in control over the federal government.

What happened?

After WW II our government, unbeknownst to the people brought

Why voters should be offended by Proposal 1

Why voters should be offended by Proposal 1

By Tom McMillin, Detroit Free Press guest writer 12:21 a.m. EDT May 2, 2015
DFP McMillin oped pr (2).JPG

The most offensive aspect of Proposal 1 isn’t the enormity of the tax increases proposed.

Certainly, the tax hikes are steep enough to upset voters who feel they pay enough already. The sales tax, gas tax and vehicle tax hikes combined would take an additional $2 billion every year, making Proposal 1 the largest tax increase in Michigan since the state income tax was introduced in 1967.

But it’s not the hundreds of dollars in additional taxes that voters would pay each year that inspires such bitter opposition to Proposal 1. Nor is it the hodgepodge of unrelated spending and regulations thrown into a proposal supposedly for road repair.

Voters should be deeply offended by the scare tactics employed by the forces supporting Proposal 1, telling us that anyone — even children — might be injured or killed by flying concrete any day now unless we pass these tax hikes.

Change from a Boot Leg Corporation to a Co-op

To: Debbie
An open letter to the Board of Directors and Upper Officers of Mid West Energy.
To be read at the May 26 meeting.
It is good to go back to the co-op you should have never left.
What has to be is the  Board of Directors  can only  be advisory and collect the information and submit it to the Member  Customer for their Approval or Reduction.

The Member Customers  must have the option to remove board members  not preforming correctly.
Once the member customers get  control of things  the rates should be reduced. No more 3 card Molly or Shell Games with no Peanuts!!!
Anything else will be  Commandeering and Racketeering,!!!!.
The Member Customer would be just like the township boards in Michigan  where they can address the board and the board dosent have to listen.
The  rogue agency, the public service commission  must  be dissolved. What needs to be done will be done by the elected state legislature like it should be where the people have a voice.
