Your Tax Dollars at Work! Let's Give Them Some MORE!

This is what the Michigan Legislature is working on, and how out of control these people are.

2008 Senate Bill 1208 (Establish official state "Scottish Tartan")


Introduced by Sen. Glenn Anderson on March 13, 2008, to esatblish that henceforth and forever more (or at least until a future legislature and governor see fit to declare otherwise), the official Scottish tartan of the great state of Michigan shall be the one described by the Scottish hand weavers and textile designers "thread count" denoted by the phrase "BG18* W2 BG8 W2 T8 DG2 T4 DG24 DR4 DG4*," where the symbol "*" denotes 1/2 the total threads at the turning points. The bill is cosponsored by Senators John Gleason, Michael Prusi, Martha Scott, Deborah Cherry, Dennis Olshove, Michael Switalski, Raymond Basham, and Patricia Birkholz.
Referred to the Senate Local, Urban, & State Affairs Committee on March 13, 2008.

You have got to be kidding me! This is the kind of crap they get paid for?

I have to tell you that through email I talked to Mr Anderson about his refusal to support school vouchers, which he sent out in one of his flyers that he objected to them. He said that the people had spoken (voted) and rejected vouchers. They sure did, didn't they?

The people of Michigan rejected vouchers because the vouchers didn't apply to all Michigan students! You had to be in an inner city school with failing schools to qualify for a voucher. Nothing like special programs for some, but nothing for most!

I told him that, and his answer to me was that until private schools answered to the government (Can you believe that! Thats exactly why we want private schools, we want the schools to answer to the parents! Not Government!) he would not support any voucher program!

These people think they are God, they have lost the ability to think like the average Michigan resident because they are coddled and enjoy special benefits and power trips. It is time for part time legislators, because they have way too much time on their hands.

Instead of worrying and passing legislation to drill for oil and natural gas in Michigan, (we have plenty of both here!) we see they are busy trying to pass a Scottish Tartan act! Instead of seeking to remove and trim down expensive state entitlement programs that are breaking the back of the Michigan People, we get this kind of nonsense?

Give me a break!
