Santorum: Very Very Best Chance

Excellent ad by Team Santorum. Will the voters agree that he’s the best chance the GOP has of winning in November?

The disdain and vengence of Stupak

Seems Congressman Bart Stupak‘s true colors are starting to show.

Apparently Bart doesn’t like Tea Parties.  From RedState:

How divided this country has become. I have never heard such contempt and sophomoric talk against the American public by their own elected officials in my life. I guess they are learning from The One’s great oratory skills and his eloquent use of Alinsky’s tactics. Bart Stupak, who’s true colors are reflected in this video at about 3:29 in, by sounding off on his fellow Americans:

If anything I just made the tea party people spend a lot of money that wasn’t necessary on all these ads they have to run against me so they can’t use it on anyone else. So I’ll take credit for sucking their treasury dry.”

Really, Bart? The “Tea Party people.” Who are the tea partiers, Bart? They are your betrayed constituents who now give their hard-earned money to defeat progressive-socialists hiding in conservative clothing politicians like yourself. They are hard-working Americans who are tired of government taking over their lives and stealing the fruits of their labors through oppressive taxation. They are the very people you call ‘neighbor’ and ‘friend’ back in Michigan.

The beds of Bart Stupak and others who voted to move America closer to socialism (including Steve Kagen) have been made.  In the process the sleeping giant has been awaken and it is working to ensure a return to the principles America was founded on.

History will not be kind to you, Mr. Stupak. We can only hope there are enough “Tea Party people” across America–the land of the free and the home of the brave–to take her back and elect people that will cause a reverse legislative revolution and restore this Constitutional Republic back to what the Founder’s intended.

Will Moore repay Michigan taxpayers?

It would be only right don’t you think?

In his 2009 film “Capitalism: A Love Story,” Michigan native Michael Moore went to Wall Street with a request to corporate officials whose companies received bailout money from the federal government.

“We’re here to get the money back for the American people,” Moore said in the film. “I’ve got more bags — $10 billion probably won’t fit in here.”

Moore was criticizing an economic system he calls “legalized greed,” but the Mackinac Center has discovered that Moore’s movie qualified for a windfall — at the expense of Michigan taxpayers.

That windfall would come from Michigan’s refundable tax credit program for the film industry, a program that allows movie producers to apply for a tax refund of up to 42 percent of their spending in Michigan. This lavish provision means a studio can easily receive more from Michigan taxpayers than it pays in Michigan taxes.

Apparently Moore doesn’t realize you can’t have it both ways.

We spoke with Mackinac Center Fiscal Policy Director Michael LaFaive about Moore and the film incentive program.

“You cannot create jobs, you cannot enrich both Peter and Paul by robbing one of them,” LaFaive said. “And that’s what is occurring here. Mr. Moore should know better, since he so long has railed against this type of cronyism, these cozy relationships between government and the private sector.”

Michael Moore said in his film, “We want our money back.” (Source: Mackinac Center)

Liberal hypocrisy at its finest.  Mr. Moore, Michigan taxpayers are waiting …

Meet Me in the Stairwell – 9/11/01

(H/T – Silent E)


You say you will never forget where you were when
you heard the news On September 11, 2001.
Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
with a man who called his wife to say ‘Good-Bye.’ I
held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
peace to say, ‘Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
is OK..I am ready to go.’

I was with his wife when he called as she fed
breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
tried to understand his words and as she realized
he wasn’t coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a
woman cried out to Me for help. ‘I have been
knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!’ I said.
‘Of course I will show you the way home – only
believe in Me now.’

I was at the base of the building with the Priest
ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He
heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,
with every prayer. I was with the crew as they
were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
faith has saved them.

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan .
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.
Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew
every name – though not all knew Me. Some met Me
for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.
Some couldn’t hear Me calling to them through the
smoke and flames; ‘Come to Me… this way… take
my hand.’ Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.
But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You
may not know why, but I do. However, if you were
there in that explosive moment in time, would you have
reached for Me?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey
for you. But someday your journey will end. And I
will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may
be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are
‘ready to go.’

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.
