I don't have time to really go into details on any issue at least till after Monday.
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead. To quote Lt John McClane - "Yippee Kai Aye M#@%@#%er" I don't dance on many graves. That's an exception.
It looks like Jerry Zandstra is withdrawing for the senate race and will not be contesting in court the decision by the board of canvassers. If Jerry is on the ballot unexpectedly, he has my vote. If not, I'll be voting for the candidate who talks most about economic issues and has the best chance to defeat Stabenow. Jerry gained my support due to economic issues.
Regardless of what happens, Jerry Zandstra added to the debate with his discussion of economic issues, health care, affirmative action, and life issues. While health care costs and economics (outside taxes) don't get the same hype as other issues, they are very important, especially with the more quiet "man on the street" who isn't always in the news. I hope Jerry stays active and considers a run for Vern Ehlers' congressional seat when Ehlers retires.
Castle Doctrine (no duty to retreat) and the Helmet Law (repeal requirements of motorcyclists being forced to wear helmets) on their way to Granholm. I support both of these bills. A man or woman's home is their castle. As for helmets, government doesn't need to be a nanny to please the insurance lobbies. Get rid of the seatbelt law as well(and yes, I wear them).
There's a lot of controversey over the statue of the "naked man" at the Mill Pond down in Brighton. I don't see the big deal. Granted I didn't take a close look at it, but I didn't even notice that it wasn't wearing any clothes until the papers mentioned it. Maybe I need new contacts. I'm more concerned about all the tax measures and judicial races out here instead.
Lastly, Livonia Congressman Thad McCotter wrote a column taking the jokers at the UN to task. Kudo's to McCotter, and I wish more congressman were outspoken about the current joke that is the UN. It's past time for us to get out of the UN.
And speaking of the UN, there's another push for global gun grabs on the way at the end of the month. I'll be "fair and balanced" and let the gun grabbers have their say on this, as well the more mainstram Gun Owners of America.
