"How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!" --Psalm 133: 1

I must have heard that verse quoted to me a million and three times during my formative years.  I'm the eldest of ten and five of my nine siblings share the same chromosomal structure.  Of course, with that much testosterone in one house there was ample opportunity for... we'll call it animated disagreement.  The truth of the matter is I was a pipsqueak but I was still spoiling for a little rough housing.

Posted at 8:25am on Jul. 10, 2008 Talk about two ends of the spectrum

Waiting for the other shoe to drop.  That's the best way to describe the continuing drama with the all-Democrat Detroit City Council.  Several council members remain targets of a federal investigation into a bribe backed multi-million dollar deal with Synagro to handle waste and build an incinerator.  Members and their staffs continue to be questioned and, sometimes, video-taped accepting funny money. And in the best Democrat tradition there isn't a one of them standing up and taking responsibility for his or her actions, although responsibility could be forced upon them somewhere down the road.

Posted at 8:20am on Jul. 9, 2008 Freedom is so... passe

Low rise jeans and term limits.  Beautiful things.  What do the topics have in common?  Nothing but liberty, my friends, nothing but liberty.  

First, our friend, the term limit.  Love them or hate them, it is tough to argue limits aren't affecting the way things happen in Lansing.  Or that they aren't about to affect things in even more profound ways this November.  The Detroit News reports this morning on this fall's state House elections where forty-four members of the chamber are getting the boot not because the voters got sick of them but because, well, just because.

Posted at 8:50am on Jul. 8, 2008 Michigan MSM isn't in the tank for Obama at aaaaaaaaall...

All those weeks ago when Barack Obama visited Grand Rapids you'd have thought the Beatles had just arrived from Liverpool.  That the allies had rolled into Paris.  That a certain foot touched the top of a certain mountain.  You could watch an hour's worth of constant coverage, leave the house, drive downtown, find parking, go to the event, sit through security sweeps and pomp and circumstance and all of the speeches, find your way through the crowd, get back in your car, fight traffic the whole way home, cook a frozen pizza, open an ice cold beverage, kick back in the lay-z-boy and the anchors at WOOD TV 8 still hadn't taken a breath.  Wall-to-wall media coverage for hours without commercial interruption.  When McCain comes to town you get a five minute blip on the eleven o'clock news.

Posted at 1:11pm on Jul. 7, 2008 Obama to accept nomination in Broncos backyard... and so I weep

The Detroit News reports this afternoon that the Barackstar will accept the Democratic nomination for President at Invesco Field at Mile High in Denver.

Mile High is the third holiest site for orange and blue fans everywhere, behind only the old Mile High (which physically shook every Sunday afternoon in the presence of number 7) and Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego where the Broncos won their first Superbowl.

Posted at 8:20am on Jul. 7, 2008 How many signatures will they submit, and what then?

Today is the day.  Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's Monday, the first day back after (what I hope was) an awesome three-day weekend, a return to the grindstone and the day power finally returned for many Grand Rapids residents after a nasty weekend storm.  But that's not what I'm talking about.  Today is the filing deadline.

Posted at 7:19am on Jul. 3, 2008 Obsolete embryo killing petition close to ballot in Michigan

While we're talking petitions... Most of the petition talk going around the conservative blogosphere to this point has revolved around the shady effort to rewrite the constitution, and with good reason.  There's another petition floating out there though that just announced their intentions to turn in between 500,000 and 550,000 signatures by next week's Monday deadline.

Posted at 7:45am on Jul. 2, 2008 Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse

I swear, we could talk about a shocking new detail or a major new scandal out of Detroit every day for a year and we still won't have gotten to the bottom of all of the sludge (har) in the lefty Mecca.  Today it's the Ivory Tower telling us that a member of the mainstream media has been officially caught up in the mix:


According to a report by Fox 2 reporter Scott Lewis, (Fox 2 Reporter Fanchon) Stinger accompanied Detroit developer Rayford Jackson to a meeting with city councilwoman Monica Conyers in October at Southwestern Church of God in Detroit regarding a possible sludge recycling contract with Synagro Technologies Inc.

Lewis said Stinger was not at the meeting to report the story. It's unclear why Stinger attended the meeting.

The FBI is currently investigating the City Council over the deal as one staff member was recently outed on videotape accepting payoffs.  Conyers appears to be at the center of the investigation, her longtime A-Team political consultant Sam Riddle no longer in her employ for unspecified reasons offering up tasty morsels like this, maybe the funniest heartbreaking truism I've read in months...

"The only difference between Detroit and Third World nations in terms of corruption is that there are no goats in the streets in Detroit."

Ouch.

Posted at 7:48am on Jul. 1, 2008 When the Democrats get control the voters get Detroit

I was born and raised in Grand Rapids.  This is my home.  I love it here.  I've had opportunities to move to Lansing, to head out to Washington, D.C., but none of that excites me.  For years I'd commute 75 minutes each way to work (back when gas was under $2 a gallon, thank heavens) and when it came time to buy my first house I didn't look anywhere else.

Posted at 7:54am on Jun. 30, 2008 It Isn't the Fourth Just Yet

I know more than usual everyone's starting off the week looking forward to Friday and who can blame any of us?  July 4th has always been one of my favorite days of the year.  I have an aunt and uncle (and cousins) who live out on Lake Bella Vista in Rockford and they always host my mom's side of the family on the fourth for swimming, tubing, a bbq, pick-up basketball, hot-tubbing, you name it.  And God bless them, that's not an easy task.  I'm the eldest of ten myself and my mom's number ten of twelve.  Most of her siblings also have more than a handful of kids.
