Michigan´s Gretchen Whitmer, the State´s Senate Democratic Leader, is now pleading for President Obama to trample on Michigan´s state sovereignty and control the state from Washington DC. This is an odd request for someone that thinks she should be Michigan´s next Governor. During most of American history, state politicians have been keen to safeguard their own power in their state. We even fought a whole civil war in part over the idea of states´ rights, after all. Oh, but not Michigan´s Gretchen Whitmer.

...our impending economic disaster, euphemistically termed the Fiscal Cliff, seems to be proceeding without anything being done to effectively slow its progress. In other words, our politicians seem to be in rout step like a legion of zombies as they stagger ever closer to our collective fiscal doom. Our president has his scope zeroed in on the rich or as the French and Russians called them the bourgeoisie, for they alone are responsible for our fiscal irresponsibility and therefore deserve his wrath. Strangely, many of us are asking just who those people were who could afford those $40,000 a plate

People despise Obama and his family not only because of bad policies and the Obamas’ pernicious mendacity, but also because they are arrogant and disrespectful to the people.
I spoke with a person in Joplin, Missouri this morning. You remember Joplin, Missouri, don’t you? It’s the town of approximately 40,000 people that suffered the wrath of a devastating EF-5 tornado on May 22, 2011. The tornado destroyed some 7,500 homes and apartment buildings. Four schools were destroyed, and six more including a college administration building, suffered extensive damage. Over 1,000 people were injured, and 161 lives were lost.
With Mitt Romney visiting Manny Pacquiao prior to his loss on Saturday night, the blogosphere is abuzz over possible connections between the outcome of the fight and a vast US "Right-Wing" conspiracy concerning the 2014 mid-term elections! Could there possibly be any truth to this?
