    The group Unlock Michigan has been caught on video with a guy that was teaching the canvassers to illegally collect signatures, and how to lie to the police and investigators. Basically to flat out lie about what the petition is about.
    Oh yes,... and other ballot initiatives have had snow-white innocence attached to every signature they've gathered... LOL

    The initiative is going to have more than enough signatures to be certified for the ballot. All they need is 300K in Michigan, and they have 500K. Even Nessie and her Democrat pal SOS aren't going to be able to de-certify over 200K signatures. They won't waste their time. This is all politics.

    The vote doesn't have to be scheduled in a November election. I believe an election can be set on any citizen-initiated proposal (like this one) within 90 - 120 days after the signatures are certified by the SOS.

    Its not going to a vote anyway. Once the Legislature sees that enough signatures are certified by the SOS, they will initiate a bill that will do what the voters want, and Gretch cannot veto it, because it was an initiative started by the voters via petition. That's one good law we still have here in Michigan.

    Of course, we may lose that law once the Dems re-gerrymander the voting districts to their liking. That will be happening soon.

    Someone who was on the Breonna Taylor grand jury has requested that the Court make public the entire grand jury proceedings and claims that AG Cameron has been misleading the public about what evidence was presented to the grand jury.

    Man, Liney, M sounds even worse than I imagined. The anti-Catholic bias will rage against ACB. It’s going to be ugly.
    Its not good. Nessie came into office with an axe to grind with the Catholic church because they run most of the adoption agencies here in Michigan, and the State had the good sense to help fund those agencies, because they do good stuff, .. like taking in kids that need homes. Nessie is a lesbian, and she and her partner apparently tried to adopt a child thru a Catholic agency, and were denied because they are lesbians. The Catholic church still believes that marriage should be between one man and one woman and that's the environment that they want their orphans adopted in to. Nessie is out to change that, even if it means closing down the adoption agencies.

    Of course, homosexuals and lesbians (LGBTQ) could open up and fund adoption agencies of their own, and probably qualify for state aid as well, ... but they'd rather shut down the Catholics, and have the State take care of those kids in non-existent state agencies. The Catholics run most of the adoption agencies in Michigan. Close them, and I guess the kids hit the street. But, hey, .. we can't have bigotry in our state, can we? Find a cardboard box underneath a viaduct, kid ...

    Nessie cloaks her anger with the Catholic church in the priest scandals involving young boys. I share her disgust with those incidents, but she is going after the church with an atom bomb, when probably a good pair of tweezers would get the bad guys out of the Church. But, politically, .. for her and her supporters, .. she's doing "a great job".

    The Dems have to tread a fine line when they attack ACB for being a devout Catholic. They'll probably attack the "charismatic" part of her beliefs, rather than the orthodox "Catholic" side. That way they can paint her as some sort of a religious fanatic, rather than a "acceptable" Catholic. (like the Kennedys)

    I was disappointed but not surprised to see the Left is already attacking ACB for having adopted two Haitian kids. Just like they did Romney and his grandchild. (he has a short memory)

    I guess Catholics and Christians just can't be allowed to have kids anymore.

    If neither the US or Russia intervenes in this, there could be mass genocide against Armenians in the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh territory. It is pretty widely accepted that Erodgan is helping out Azerbaijan significantly.

    It's hard not to be reminded of Russia's invasion of Georgia 12 years ago...also done while the US was distracted with an election and the Beijing Olympics. This seems planned and not a spontaneous reaction to a few mortars shot across the border.

    Just over a million people have now already voted. Virginia, North Carolina, and Wisconsin combine for around 750,000 of those.

    You can see what % this would make up of the 2016 turnout too.

    Sigh. The group Unlock Michigan has been caught on video with a guy that was teaching the canvassers to illegally collect signatures, and how to lie to the police and investigators. Basically to flat out lie about what the petition is about.

    Now lying about what the petition is about is not illegal in Michigan. But if that group is encouraging people to lie to police/illegally collect signatures that should be investigated.


    What I don't get is that Unlock Michigan announced on 9/23 they had 500k signatures and considering they were asking people to send any remaining signatures...that the earliest they could have turned them in was 9/24 or 9/25. They have an affidavant (spelling I know) from a former state official that it would take 60 days for them to be processed. SOS Benson says it would take 105 days. Whatever. Even if it was 60 days that takes you past the election anyways.

    But then, tbh, the plan never was to put up to the people to vote on this. It was an end around Gov. Whitmer the entire time.

    I agree. And while term limits throw out the bad with the good no matter which side of the aisle you are on, I think the time has come to eliminate career politicians.

    I think 3 X 4 year terms = 12 years total is more than enough for both House and Senate. That way a person could serve a total of 24 years if they maxed out in both.

    More than enough.

    In Michigan we'd finally be rid of Stupidnow, and in Kentucky they'd be rid of McConnell.

    Seems like a fair trade to me.
    There is always term limits....it called voting them out.

    We have term limits in Michigan, and they have made the legislature much more partisan and more beholden to those that hold the money.

    Nothing changes until you get the money out of politics.

    You must have read a different article than you posted...

    Dems aren't opposed to Catholics. They are opposed to theocrats.

    Nessie already put the Catholic church in Michigan on notice that she'd be "watching" them, while the echoes of her taking the oath of office were still ringing on Capitol Avenue.

    Catholics that practice their faith faithfully are evil in her mind.

    As they are with most Dems, .. which we will see more of in the coming weeks.

    Shocking!

    Many teachers and families feared a spike in COVID-19 cases when Florida made the controversial push to reopen schools in August with in-person instruction.

    A USA TODAY analysis shows the state’s positive case count among kids ages 5 to 17 declined through late September after a peak in July.

    The early results in Florida show the success of rigorous mask wearing, social distancing, isolating contacts and quick contact tracing when necessary, health experts said.


    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ed/3557417001/

    Desantis and the state education commissioner were roundly criticized when an order was issued by the commissioner that all schools in FL had to offer in-person instruction within brick and mortar schools as a school option for parents and students that wanted it. The teacher's union sued and lost. Parents complained that the governor's office was sentencing people to die. Ridiculous and since FL made it very public that they weren't experiencing increased case #s in the 4-17yo age group with re-opening of schools, the commissioner's office has been flooded with requests from other counties and states asking how they did it.

    Of course, standard caveat from the authors of this article ...... it's still early.

    This way the finger pointers could show how clean they are as opposed to the filthy cheaters they are trying to indict.
    Absolutely.
    All for transparency. AND term limits for US reps and senators while we're at it.

    Yeah, I know Trump won't release his tax returns. Just saying... would prefer he does if his response is basically "Fake News!" IRS doing an audit is irrelevant to releasing it.
