For Sunlover38 - just google Military Commissions Act of 2006

for more information. Remember, Google is your friend. Look it up.

The bill has passed both the House and the Senate and is awaiting

the President's signature. (and probably the zillioneth signing

statement of his presidency)

I can't believe this got press. If the campaign comes down to her mole, then Michigan is in for trouble no matter what happens in November.

I removed myself from the last thread, but since this is a new one...

I think I just threw up in my mouth a bit when I read this email from Betsy.

Dear Friend,

My husband Dick's 51st birthday is October 21st but I'd really like to make his "gift day" the next day, Sunday October 22nd.

On October 22nd, our campaign's financial disclosure is due and the kids and I would like to give Dick a birthday present by raising $51,000 for his campaign for Governor against Jennifer Granholm.

Will you please help out and join the tens of thousands of friends, neighbors, volunteers, grassroots activists and caring citizens who have invested $20, $35, $40 or $100 in our campaign to change Michigan for the better?

When Governor Granholm attacks my husband, she says things that just aren't so. The desperation to get re-elected at all costs makes people behave in disappointing ways.

I'm so proud of the campaign Dick has waged, the vision and plans he has for turning Michigan around, and his love for Michigan shines through. When he wins, his confident, effective, results-oriented leadership will be a gift to the people of Michigan.

But first we've got a campaign to win, a birthday to celebrate, a campaign finance disclosure report to file and a goal to meet. Will you help by making your safe and secure online contribution today?

Gratefully,

Betsy DeVos

I assume the mods close it because the dabates are over.

No, because it had digressed into discussions of aboriginal mammals living in Zeeland, MI.

Granholm won even more browny points from me when she said that she'd support Light rail in the motor city and mass transit options in other feasible places. Devos on the other hand wants to add more lanes to our highways. Sorry rich boy. We could have a 30 mile wide highway running from South Bend, IN to the Big Mac and it would still look like a Meijer parking lot on a payday when rush hour comes around.

During the Candian trash discussion, I was holding my breath waiting for the cheap joke. It didn't happen.

I wish they've have tied in the bottle bill to that.

[has seen the bottled water aftermath at events, and it ain't pretty]

If this thread is going to devolve into namecalling again, it should be closed as well.

...Oh, and pleasant note to the guy about feet:

FYI, I have a mighty classy pinky toe. I just don't go around flaunting it.

When she came to open the Dem's place on Cherry Street, she was wearing sandals. So I looked.

IMHO, nail polish is an affectation of the bored.

Agreed.

I do have this to say: Michigan historically has had a tough time of it economically. Granholm inherited a lot of problems from the previous guv.
