Republican Gov. Sanford - Where is he?

I can understand his frustration, he knows the cost to his state in being FORCED to take the stimulus , he has much more knowledge about what the insiders are doing than what we hear.I am ashamed at how Gov. Granholm has begged Obama for deals and money, when she sat back and let our state go under. She has claimed benifits of bringing jobs into the state when she had no part in getting them. Then she lets companies move out because she will not accept the FACT 6 business taxes on companies, are more than they could pay and still stay in Michigan. When these companies can't pay ALL the taxes , they either move out, lay off people, or pass it onto the consumer, I believe the better alternative would be to lower business taxes, keep those companies in Michigan and have the jobs, revenue,and still have the money to run the state. AND Not have to GRAVOL to Obama. We are now indebted to the stimulus, and I can see why Gov. Stanford would feel very upset, with the feds wanting to control his state, a BIG BURDEN ON his Citizens.. AND What's wrong with wanting to have space to clear your mind, and regroup? Do we not feel the pressure in life , to want to just get away and forget about our troubles? I sure do..This is just another way for the dems to remove a republican fron the senate--MORE control!!  (Jun 24, 2009 | post #6)

They also have talked about taking OUT the dam in Lyons, can't image Ionia becoming what is was in the 1800's when all the low area was the Grand River..There goes ALL of the Main St. and Many business. Their has been times when the flooding filled the old K-Mart area, and the lumber company, and right up to what was Ionia manufacturing Co., that was on M-66, The libaray needed to enlarge and they couldn't move into the old K-Mart building, BECAUSE it's IN the FLOOD PLAIN Area.. Why do you think they built up the area where the water plant sets on the N side of the fairgrounds,so it wouldn't be sitting in water..I live 1/2 mi. N. of the fairgrounds and have had water in my basement for 7months, seeping in. There was a creek than ran behind me and it was shut oup, so the water always keeps my grass green when everyone elses is brown. WATER has Always been a major problem in Ionia, if not the drains, the dams that control it from the East.. Taking out the Lyons Dam, could put us back to what this area was when the Indians used the river for transportation..So, much for going forward, fits in with what the feds are doing to all of us..  (Jun 23, 2009 | post #213)

Good to see another Ionian stepping up about their knowledge of what the Grand River is capable of doing..People posting on here and not living in the area have NO idea of what happens in our town..As I said, we have had flooding 7x's in 8 mo. I have Never seen it flood this many times in this length of time., BUT when you KNOW how MUCH water has laid in this area in the last 8 mos. AND the amount of rain we recieved Friday night, ANYONE--with COMMON SENSE Knows the area would flood AGAIN!! As the lawyer on TV-8 said, IF THEY CAN PROVE THIS HAS BEEN A FLOODED AREA___THEY HAVE A CASE!!! The city as well as the state, and federal government has been making decisions that are detramental to all tax payers..Again this is another irresponsible decision, at the PEOPLES EXPENSE...GREEDY Managers, and Officials have cost others to pay for their Greed..  (Jun 23, 2009 | post #212)

Again I say this is a disaster for people who came to Ionia, NOT living in the area, and some arriving on Friday nite, when the storm started, these people were NOT aware that this fairgrounds has flooded 7 x's in 8 mo. BUT THE MANAGERS of Ionia KNEW. I agree many of these people are not wealthy people and are NOT able to go out and replace their cars. Those stranded at the middle school were offered transportation home, as far away as Holland, my daughter and husband went and volunteered . The red Cross did not call, so other arraingments must have been made. We here in Ionia have just had our water, sewage, and garbage rates increased at a time , when there are MANY homes in foreclosurer, Many have lost their jobs. NOW when the city Thought they could recieve a benifit from the B-93 Bash, it will cost the city money that they do not have. Just because Of Poor management. Time to remove some of the ignorant city officials , Kind of sounds like the state and presidents administration too doesn't it.. They are all in the same MENTAL Syndrome, thinking of ONLY THEMSELVES..  (Jun 21, 2009 | post #68)

I think the Ionia Authorites need to beheld resposible for allowing people to park in that area. THEY KNOW, that the fairgrounds have flooded 7 x's since last Nov 2008. I live 1/2 mi. from the fairgrounds and have NEVER seen it flooded this many times in such a short period of time, and I have been in the area 61 years.After the rain we recieved Friday nite, I knew that people parking on the fairgrounds would have trouble, this is a case of poor management. NOW, the owners of these cars may have to accept the bailout to buy the cars that Little Debbie has offered. It is truely a shame that they were not directed properly to what would happen, as I believe AGAIN, Poor Management ....  (Jun 21, 2009 | post #37)

Common Sense in America

Artic::We can all see you are a supporter for SOCIALISM, bless you and your efforts, can you pay for all who will recieve the OBAMANOMICS?? When you come to accept you have LOST all you have worked for {IF you ARE a WORKER}} you will then Know that Socialism is a way of life that Supresses people, and all that would have had the ability to do to benifit their living. This is a definate visual we are seeing in this administration. He will CRIPPLE all, inorder that they will be totally relyant on the systems. People will be waiting for their monthly checks to live on, and the amount will not cover what they need to live on..This administration has FORCED Insurance Companies, Banks, and OUR auto industry to become dependent on THEIR AUTHORITY--They are now trying to take over the health care, and schools. He wants his own militia to control leagal citizens and their RIGHTS to speak up about their Constitutional Rights being taken from us. When will he stop?? He will not, unless upright citizens STOP him.. STOP!! Ask yourself, Have you EVER lived in a time where CHANGE has come, Like A Theif In The Night ??Yes, he has admitted they work 24/7, everyday we are seeing him sign a bills to make changes that CONTROL Citizens ..Wake- UP! We are being forced to accept a BILLS { In many ways }} goods, that will ONLY take away our Civial Liberties, our Freedoms, and supress ALL of us..Stand -Up--Wake-Up, even the rich will have less, they have already lost much of what they did have 1 year ago..When ALL of the CHANGES hit ALL the pockets of people , Their eyes will be OPENED!!  (Jun 20, 2009 | post #64)

Govenor Says Un- Employment going Up DAH!!!

Did Granholm think we as citizens would NOT KNOW that our state is being hit as one of the most UNEMPLOYED???? Do we as tax payers look or appear ignorant?? I will not be surprised to see unemployment his 16-17 % when the auto workers file. I watched as she CROWED about the new jobs to our state--TOO bad we can't count on them statring soon, instead of NEXT year..AND How many will still be able to start when Obama changes the health and tax plans he has in mind?? Now the economists say Michigan will NOT come back for YEARS..How many more will move out of Michigan??  (Jun 17, 2009 | post #1)

Obama Fires Inspector General Over Friend

Ms Angie and Tango, you are both commendable citizens to see what this imposter is doing in OUR White House. I also share the fear of what he has done in 6 months, it is truely terrifing..I keep wondering evry morning when I wake up, ""What has he done while we slept"". .He is taking our capitalistic society down to a socialistic contolled, limited, suppressed nation. In 6 more months we will be a THIRD WORLD country..His whole plans include limiting every person to only so much income, and controlling every aspect of their lives. Obama has been PLANTED into the White House to control our country, as the SECRET Billionaires have ordered him to do. A New World Government with a one world currency, these Billionaires have CONTROLLED the North Americans for DECADES, and this really makes me SICK of what this country has done..They have USED hard working people as pawns , to get all their money and now to destroy AMERICA, Mexico, and Canada..The Builderburg group and all their groups that are in their league have destroyed what we hold dearest to us--FREEDOMS.. Check this site, you will ALL see who we have trusted for years, that have DESTROYED OUR COUNTRY http://www.establi shmentalmanic.com use the alphabet on the side to check out the names of those who we trusted.. WE have been made a fool of TOOOOO LONG...  (Jun 16, 2009 | post #12)

Newt Gingrich: Americans are "Surrounded by Paganism"

After posting the truth, and reading several posts on denial of truth, I can agree whole heartedly Newt IS RIGHT..Paganism, means Heathens---Go your merry way, believe as you "CHOOSE" and that will be Your Fate..I shall not waste my time on any of you, " You Have Been Told, you will never be able to say, you were not told"" "..  (Jun 12, 2009 | post #1398)

Newt Gingrich: Americans are "Surrounded by Paganism"

God, did not create SIN. He gave man free will, and when Satan was thrown out because he wanted the power GOD had, he became evil. Satan, did the one act to destroy what God had created, because of his rejection from God. he corrupted man and took advantage of the one thing God gave to humanity FREE WILL. When Eva ate from the "Apple" it was NOT a apple, as people have put that label on it, She had sex with satan, when you read on she gave birth to Cain and Able, Cain is of the Devil..He then became the leader of the Arab people and they are the ones who have had a bitterness since time began, Study and read, what is the truth. The people demanding land in Isreal are from Cains generations, ARABS., Not Palistians ,This is why Isreal is a thorn to them.. That is why God threw Adam and Eve from the garden, she committed a act that would create hatred and evil in the world.How would you feel if you had no choice in your life, if God had not given it to you in a act of LOVE? This gift given to mankind was destroyed by Satan.. AND as we have seen Satan is still alive and well throughout the world. ,his time is running out and he knows it. That is one reason he is working hard and fast in this day and age, he knows God is going to throw him in the pit of fire, and ALL who follow him..To all who think this is not true , just hold on, your time is coming.....  (Jun 11, 2009 | post #1259)

Newt Gingrich: Americans are "Surrounded by Paganism"

Excellent post , Ruth. The only point of where we are now, is many will be blinded, many will not hear, many will not see what is happening around them..SO- they will be the ones who will see, hear, and know when they are standing in judgement. We, can cry out and we can speak the words our Father gives us, but, that is all we are here to do. As this country FALLS deeper into sin, allowing the morals in our country to go to Hell, the punishment of God will continue to fall upon us.People should look back and see the disasters we have had , as our country has been in Isreal forcing them to give up Gods land. Investigate, you will see Katrina, hurricans, tornado, floods, fires. It is NOT our place to tell Isreal what to do, they KNOW what they will have to do..AND they Have their Fathers guidence and protection. Remember, they too have turned from their father and this is why they too, have suffered. He will bring them all back to him.. All around the world will be devestation, and we will ALL suffer as never before. BUT some will have to go thru it before they believe it..God Have mercy On Them..  (Jun 10, 2009 | post #1137)

Newt Gingrich: Americans are "Surrounded by Paganism"

I stand with Newt, he has is correctly right about what this administration is doing. We are being destroyed as a FREE country, We have been moving into a socialistic society for years, This man, Mr. Obama , is just another pawn to enter us closer to the antichrist..We are going to be a supressed country, and all the socialistic countries will laugh, as China did last week at us.They can all see what is happening, it's just the BLINDED ONES that do not see. God has said" Many will be blinded" I have seen this first hand with many people.People are sitting back waiting for someone else to stand up and stop the collission, but they will not be able to stop it.  (Jun 9, 2009 | post #905)

Our Supreme Court , Is this Court Working FOR US?

Again, the supreme court has failed the tax payers, who have invested into the automotive companies. This court is not FOR the People, as I have seen for years, but mainly these last 9 months. Cases have been thrown out with a very definite standing about Mr. Obama's validating his birth certificate, and the corruption in the court continues. As Michigan residents watch our state deterioate--hourly , we also watch hard working family business and bond holders, loosing more of what they have invested into this state. I am waiting to see who will step up and SCREAM OUT " We HAVE GONE TOO FAR" Our country and state are reaching levels of uncontrol that I have never seen, The Auto companies under government control, banks, insurance companies and soon it will be utilities, and all companies we rely on daily. Soon the very people who work 24/7 to provide our food will be RAPED of their living, which will effect EVERYONE.. When we have NO dairy or meat, and then the prices will go sky high for what is left for market, the middle man and below will not be able to buy.. This hoax of greenhouse gas, of taxing farmers $ 175. per head for dairy and $80. for beef, and then $20.00 for Pork is just another way to SUPRESS the people. IF this is not Socialistic, what the heck is it?? I have seen pictures of people in Russia and other supressed countries, stand in line to get 1 loaf of bread! Is this what we have come to?? WAKE-UP!!! We are under seige..We are going to be taxed for everything we have, forced to pay higher gas prices if you own a bigger car, and don't get rid of it,even when you can't afford to buy one. Then you may not have a warranty, or be told when you get your car serviced, you must do these repairs or YOU CAN'T TAKE IT.. We as hard working citizens MUST STAND UP. we are being taken for all we have worked for. How many foreclosures have you seen, how many out of work, how many getting state assistance , that never have before????? This will not stop, IF we don't FORCE our elected officials to do what WE tell them to do..WE HIRED THEM!! Start speaking up, email the senators, reps, and local officials, tell them to fight for us or they will not be voted back into office..OUR TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOLKS!!!  (Jun 9, 2009 | post #1)

Give me Liberty or give me Death

As the days go by we are seeing more of our freedoms being taken from us. IF we don't stand up and oppose what this new LIBERAL administration is doing, we can kiss it all good-bye..After reading on http://www.worldne tdaily.com, that leader of the communists party, Webb, is very happy with what Obama is doing , it scarred me to death. When we as a FREE nation make the communist leader " Happy " then we are on the wrong path..I have feared before the election, that if voters didn't look at who they were REALLY voting for , we would be doomed. Everyday, it's coming true. Now he wants a "Internet Cazr" the people who belong to groups fighting what this administration is doing will be shut down. And we know already that anyone who speaks the words--constitutio n, freedom, liberty, is a right wing radical..Many are being pulled over on the road for Ron Paul bumper stickers and interragated, also any stickers opposing Obama. Now today on Fox, a story of people who worship in their own homes are doing so against the law..They will not stop in supressing American Citizens..With his promising on his campagin to help the Latinos,if they voted for him, we see he has kept THAT Promise, with his Supreme Court nominee..We will also see the boarders opened WIDE for all to enter, and recieve state benifits, that legal citizens can't get..We also have the new drivers licence with a CHIP in it, too keep track of us..Who's going to volunterily get one?? Watch out!!Who can afford to travel to Canada and Mexico, and if he opens the boarders, who needs it..Another Gotcha..Soon there will be a chip in all debit cards, new social security cards. In order to buy food, gas, and pay your bills..A Mark of the BEAST !! The walls are closing in and we must stop them NOW!  (May 27, 2009 | post #26)
