    So the best that moron woman can do is raise taxes in MI?

    We need to throw her out on her Canadian duff and be done with her! I can't believe the people in this state voted her back into office!

    She just bought a fleet of new cars too!

    Email her and tell her you want her out, or just tell her what a poor thinker and leader she is!

    Let's get a petition going to get her out!

    That makes two of us, but it does not mean that we can't get a petition up against her...Even the dim-witted-dems will be sick of her unimaginative tax plan...

    Notice how she used the war to back into her lame tax plan?
    She is pathetic!

    That's at least 3 of us that didn't vote Dem.

    But just for fun think how the state will spend the new money.

    95% administration.
    5% to improve!!! the States revenues and 4% of that 5% will go to higher salaries to the Democratic/Republican leadership for their wonderful efforts to help the poor people that live here (some of us even have jobs).

    It's a great gig if you can stand the smell.

    In case you’re wondering I’m known to be cynical and grumpy when the words “politician, new taxes, Hillary Etc” come up.

    Some of the things that get me are:

    1) Giving the Pfizer employees $1,000,000 because they lost their jobs. What about the other thousands in this state that have lost their jobs?

    2) All those who lost their jobs get a free 2 yr college education.
    A) Where will the money come from for this
    B) Where does she think that these newly educated people are going to go to get jobs? Bet it's not in MI.

    3) Cool Cities Grants. Giving mega bucks to so many cities so they can beautify their downtowns. Kind of an okay idea BUT not when you don't have any money.

    I coould go on but I'll stop. :deadhorse:

    I really love the brilliant idea of implamenting a service tax, and using the procedes to fund college education.
    This hits us both ways, businesses lose money, and less businesses will want to come here, and if that wasnt enough we will take the money to fund college educations for students that will not be able to find a job in MI and move.

    Gee, when you don't have any money I guess it doesn't make a difference if they raise taxes - you have no money to buy anything. Next week on Valentines Day Chrysler is laying off another 10,000 folks. Last one out of the State please shut off the lights...

    Start writing your state reps now...Maybe we can derail this stupid politician now before she gets it all wrong!

    Here is the letter:
    Governor Granholm;

    Watched your State of the State the other evening and feel compelled to address this now, that I have seen your plan…First off, using the war, global warming and child care issues to veil a new tax plan was completely irrelevant to what was the issue at hand for our State…It was designed to dupe the uneducated and there are plenty of those people in our State…

    On one hand, you say you want to cut spending and in the next breath you say you want to increase some services, contradictory at best…

    We need to look at the following for alternatives to your 2% Service tax which will be absolutely disastrous to businesses that are the very businesses you give lip service to for stimulated growth in…Why do we need a full time legislature and all the costs associated with running one? Why are we in the Red group of legislators along with California, New York and Pennsylvania? We could easily fit into the White or the Blue groups of part time legislators that would save the taxpayers of this State millions! How does Texas manage this?

    Raising Gasoline tax by 2 cents a gallon or raising the sales tax by one or two percent makes far more sense than the above proposal…Hitting people with liquor tax and cigarette tax is simply taking advantage of the already downtrodden in our State…We already have some of the highest liquor taxes in the country…It is not the solution to our problems…

    I, along with many others in our sphere of influence, that will be affected by your 2% Service tax proposals will fight hard to see that our representatives look at these other options, If they don’t and your program gets approved we will leave the state, never to return (we can do what we do anywhere in the US) and go to a state that has better thinking, responsible politicians, that have the right mentality to stimulate taxes and growth in well thought out business plans…They will benefit from our taxes and we from responsible leadership on their part…

    You have been in office going on 5 years and this is the best plan you can come up with? You need some better advisors on how to stimulate the economy…I know you have a tough job but you can do better than this weak business plan…You need to deal with Detroit and get Kilpatrick on a game plan of cleaning up and getting to work the citizens that have no reason not to work so they can contribute their fair share…Gone should be the days of people doing nothing and getting assistance for it…

    Regards,
    BTW, your e-mail is not working…

    But aside from the fact that she clearly is a dishonest person, think about the fact that she and Mayor Bling are as thick as thieves and have been for some time. McNamara was under federal investigation for being the corrupt SOB he was, but Bling and Grandstand were in it up to their necks as well.

    She does not have the peoples best interest at heart because she does not have one!

    Now think about this;
    Detroit is a swirling, sucking, eddy of despair, a giant vortex, a black hole, if you will...

    Under her plan she is going to force all surrounding cities to pick up the services of police and fire as well as infrastructure, subsequently acting like a giant drain on the more affluent suburbs to make up for the incredibly incompetent leadership of hiz honor! All this to support her voting base of misled and enfeebled constituents...

    This is a city that hasn't been productive in years and does not want to be...It is largely system dependent and wants to stay that way...

    She needs to go, more importantly she should have never been re-elected!

    That that royally irked me. I'm here working at an auto company that's dumping 10,000 salaried workers. I might lose my job next month. Where has Granholm been during all these auto layoffs? But 1000 jobs in Ann Arbor and she's out there on the next helicopter promising $1 million in aid...

    Hey, they dumfound me every time there is an election in Detroit. The last city election blew my mind. Jeez, I wonder why Detroit is so fugged up. The state voters is now following their foot steps I guess.

    Just think if Hillary wins the primary. Don't believe for a minute it can't happen. There are enough blind and ignorant people out there that will believe the crap she serves up. Plain scary.

    Very sobering indeed! Maybe Hillary and Pelosi will be on the same airplane that crashes and do the country a favor! Ameirca really screwed up with their protest vote in 06...Gave the dims the momentum they are riding now...

    It could be worse. We could have Bush, Cheney, and Rove running the state and then we can go to war with Ohio! Actually, Illinois would be fun to attack. Make up a reason to attack (say the Chicago Bears are about to plan an attack of mass destruction, not of the passing kind) and go after them. Hell, it will only cost us a few thousands lives and maybe a few trillion dollars!

    Naw.....I'm capable of thinking for myself. I'm surely not an idiot on the far right and never associate me with the goof balls on the far left, but I do realize that they need each other to a certain extent. We tried "one way" for the last several years and have created the biggest mess I've seen in 50 years. Maybe if we work together and solve these problems without doing the Bill O'Reiley/Jesse Jackson one side takes all approach, we just might be able to get something done. Unrealistic....kinda, but better than putting people on a plane and killing them.

    Now that's just silly. You liberals couldn't be serious if the future of the State depended on it. Oh, and it does.

    Oh... a MODERATE. A liberal who equivicates. We're talking about Michigan here, the state that is deteriorating while the rest of the Country enjoys the greatest economy in the history of the world.
    What part does Ginny play in all this?
    What part does Bush-bashing have in your thinking?
    She is kinda cute in person, though.

    A moderate? Naw, once again, just someone who is capable of thinking on their own and hoping "good things" for everybody...as impossible as it seems with all the conflict we have here and abroad. She is kinda cute, even though I haven't seen her in person. The U.S. economy has been the best in the world for decades, if not a century. B. Clinton may have had a better economy for "most" Americans, but he and Wall Street gave us the North American Free Trade Agreement, which in my honest opinion (and that's all it is) has been a one sided disaster for not only for Michigan, but the rest of the country.
