Keep your kids inside, and make your dawgs wear chastity belts! The craziest of the crazy are now running wild, mindlessly drunk on InsaniTEA. At a zoo, one can normally find a guide to help you understand the animals there, and I have found a guide to the Republicans at CPUKE, who I will not compare to animals out of respect for the animals.

What does it say about our country when people are actually cheering these ideas? Watch out, next they will have their pitch forks out and try to burn all liberals at the stake. Some one opened a window and let the common sense fly away.

That woman is clinically insane, imo. I mean a perfect republican, mean, snarky and completely without morals. How they ever managed to sell themselves as the "moral" group is a source of never ending amazement to me, because they are the opposite of moral. I just hope they keep it up cuz they sent people running and screaming into the night with their last campaign and what they are doing now, Ryan especially, will keep people leaving them in droves. I hope they get ever screechier and we end up with a 535 to 0 Congress, lol. Okay that might be a stretch, because we do have enough fruitcakes to vote for a few of them, but the farther out on that limb they go, the less seats they are going to retain. So just keep talking people, let the country see your blackhearts for the soulless monstrosity that they really are.

It seems to me that the Republicons are so trapped by their fanatical dogma that they just can't see the wood for the trees – they just cannot contemplate the fact that they are wrong – because by definition they CANNOT be wrong – EVER. They are just barking mad (demented). Rubio's solution to the problem the GOP face – is more of the same. They just can't come up with a single idea!

Thanks, Tom. The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. Do they think this is some new form of brainwashing?....where if they just keep spouting the same old bullpucky, people will begin to believe some of it? Where has common sense and conscience gone? They are surely shooting themselves in the foot by not inviting Chris Christie and other more "middle-of-the-road" politicians. By leaving them out, their obvious intention is to continue to "rile up the base" with events like this. With their base vastly shrinking, they're going to be playing to an empty room soon---just not soon enough for me.

Lol, Kit, please don't be so scarily accurate!

Although they seem to be leaning more toward encouraging people to shoot anyone who fails to agree with the neo-Con agenda.

The Party of Freedom Fries (TM) is very big on Keeping Democracy Safe (TM) by removing it from the hands of the people, who might otherwise use it and chip the varnish of the corporate profit machine.

Republicans - who brought you 'Obama Is A Tyrant For Providing More And Cheaper Health Care To More People' (TM) - move further on the safe removal of democracy in America, dumping elected officials and depriving people of their voting rights to place their choice of manager in charge of public property, despite the lack of positive fiscal results forming the excuse for democracy removal.

And it appears that they can arbitrarily take over your children's education as well, creating a booming business for charter schools run by businesses permitted to pay the manager extra.

See, the Republicans DO care about fetuses after birth under some circumstances - they want to mold their little minds for profit.

And if your State has a Republican Governor, any/every city or town can be taken over by an appointed manager at any time due to any '... facts or circumstances that, in the state treasurer’s sole discretion for a municipal government, are indicative of probable financial stress or that, in the state treasurer’s or superintendent of public instruction’s sole discretion for a school district, are indicative of probable financial stress. ...' neatly knocking out your elected officials and voting rights with no need to cheat at elections.

From below:

... This is no longer simply about getting a municipality or a school district on solid financial footing. It has transformed into what can only be seen as a power grab. It gives a political appointee control over publicly-owned assets and resources and, more sinisterly, control over the academic and educational plans used by our school systems to educate Michigan’s kids. It’s placing that control in the hands of people who need not have any training, experience or expertise in that area. ...

... In addition to the salary provided to an emergency manager in a contract approved by the state treasurer …[the] state may receive and distribute private funds to an emergency manager. As used in this subdivision, “private funds” means any money the state receives for the purpose of allocating additional salary to an emergency manager.

So, this is interesting. The state can receive funds from outside groups to augment the EMs paycheck. Why would that be? Well, there’s history of that. Robert Bobb, the EFM/EM of the Detroit Public Schools for a time, received additional salary from several groups and when you see who they were, you can see how nefarious this two-sentence bit buried in this law actually is. From a Forbes piece on this:

The Broad Foundation, along with the Kellogg Foundation, pays Bobb $145,000 a year on top of his $280,000 government salary. For those of you not familiar with Broad, it is one of the leading foundations promoting school choice and privatization across the country. One might almost think that paying a public official hundreds of thousands of dollars a year might amount to nothing short of bribery, especially given the very specific agenda of a foundation like the Broad Foundation. Now, Bobb is proposing to create charter schools for 16,000 students from 41 schools slated for closure. He argues that this will save millions of dollars. I have to wonder, however, at the conflict of interest.
Let’s zoom out for a moment.
What we have in Detroit is an Emergency Manager appointed by the previous governor who was facing a challenge from the School District which was frustrated by his top-down approach to school reform. That challenge was effectively crushed by the passage of Public Act 4. This same Emergency Manager was a graduate from a foundation that promotes corporate school reform and also pays around a third of his six-figure salary. The Emergency Manager has the power to break union contracts, layoff teachers, and open charter schools that benefit the same foundation that is so heavily invested in the Emergency Manager’s career.
This is nothing short of a coordinated effort between the billionaire foundations pushing school reform and Tea Party conservatives intent on slashing benefits and ending collective bargaining rights. Public schools are under assault by the forces of privatization, and public school teachers face benefit and salary cuts while the very rich are promised tax cuts. ...

... You can always tell when Republicans write legislation, can’t you? EMs can screw over a city two ways from Sunday but they can’t raise taxes to bring in some more revenue.

Finally, there 19 different situations that can trigger the preliminary review process that is the first step in putting a city into receivership and having to choose one of the four poisons offered. Only one of them needs to be met. The last one, carried over from PA 4, is this:

The existence of other facts or circumstances that, in the state treasurer’s sole discretion for a municipal government, are indicative of probable financial stress or that, in the state treasurer’s or superintendent of public instruction’s sole discretion for a school district, are indicative of probable financial stress.

That is so broad and so inclusive and so subjective that it almost begs the question as to why you would even bother to list the other 18 situations. At the end of the day, the state treasurer starts the process for any reason they want; it’s entirely up to them.
This law kicks in on March 28th. Any current Emergency Financial Managers will have to get new business cards that say Emergency Manager but the law doesn’t require any new reviews; they simply get grandfathered in. ...

BREAKING: Michigan Gov Snyder names DC lawyer Kevyn Orr to be Detroit Emergency Financial Manager

by Eclectablog



Anyone paying attention to Detroit's plight knows that their current financial crisis goes back for decades. Housing policies that favored white flight to the suburbs, the decline of the oh-so-important-to-Detroit auto manufacturing industry and the Great Recession have all taken their toll on this aging manufacturing city. Years of neglect and a blind eye toward investment in our state's largest city have created a perfect storm that has resulted in it a huge chunk of its population. Many of those that remain do so only because they are too desperately poor to escape. Despite this, Governor Rick Snyder and his administration are giving up on a consent agreement signed with the city last year after only 10 months. The agreement, signed in April of 2012, simply didn't solve problems that have been in the making since the middle of the last century quickly enough for these Republicans so this afternoon Governor Snyder appointed Washington, D.C. lawyer Kevyn Orr to be the new overseer of the city.

The Emergency Financial Assistance Loan Board has to make the formal appointment of an emergency financial manager and they meet later today.
When the new Emergency Manager Law PA 436, aka "The Local Financial Stability and Choice Act", goes into effect later this month, Orr will become the Emergency Manager giving him lattitude outside the realm of finances.
As I have shown in my now-(in)famous chart, this means that nearly half of all Michigan African Americans will live without local democratically-elected representation...

Given the track record of Emergency Managers in Michigan, there are very few people who believe this is going to solve the problems our beloved city faces. Perhaps Orr is a magician that can somehow find a way to build armed only with tools of cutting and slashing. Somehow I doubt it.
My prediction: after the corporatists and their business pals have extracted as much wealth as they possibly can from Detroit, the city will end up in a managed bankruptcy anyway. But, by then, it will be much, much too late.

A comprehensive look at Michigan’s new(est) Emergency Manager Law, now with STABILITY & CHOICE!
By Eclectablog on February 21, 2013 in Emergency Financial Managers, Emergency Manager Law, Emergency Managers
26
I read this stuff so you don’t have to

... A mere 37 days after voters repealed Public Act 4, Michigan’s notorious and anti-democratic Emergency Manager Law, Republican legislators passed a new version to replace it. It was signed into law as Public Act 436 thirteen days later. This defiant thumb-in-the-eye to the will of the voters was even more egregious since it contains two appropriations, one to pay Emergency Managers and another to hire consultants, lawyers, “work-out experts”, and others to implement the law. These appropriations ensure voters won’t have a chance to interfere with the business of our Very Serious GOP legislators on this matter again. ...

... You may have noticed that the terms “Emergency Financial Manager” (EFM) and “Emergency Manager” (EM) are often used interchangeably. They are, however, NOT the same. The original laws governing this, PA 101 and PA 72, called the position “Emergency Financial Manager” because the person’s duties were limited exclusively to the realm of finances. However, with Public Act 4, the title was changed to “Emergency Manager”. I explained why that is HERE:

But let’s take a closer look at #5: “Developing academic and educational plans”. In the requirement for an Emergency Manager as spelled out by the law, the only specific requirement in terms of experience is “The emergency manager shall have a minimum of 5 years’ experience and demonstrable expertise in business, financial, or local or state budgetary matters.”
What part of that gives them the expertise needed to develop academic and educational plans? If you look at who is taking the Emergency Manager training classes offered by the state, it is mostly accountants and other financial-types. In fact, the trainings themselves are primarily conducted by accounting firms and other vendors who eventually stand to benefit if an Emergency Manager hires them to take over some aspect of the operations currently handled by public employees. There is no training on developing academic or educational plans. None.
So now we begin to see why “Financial” was, at least in part, removed from the title. This is no longer simply about getting a municipality or a school district on solid financial footing. It has transformed into what can only be seen as a power grab. It gives a political appointee control over publicly-owned assets and resources and, more sinisterly, control over the academic and educational plans used by our school systems to educate Michigan’s kids. It’s placing that control in the hands of people who need not have any training, experience or expertise in that area.

The job qualifications for an EM have not changed with PA 436 so these remarks are still completely valid and the title has once again returned to “Emergency Manager”.
Here are some things you need to know about EMs. The bits in italics are directly from the 22-page law:

Upon appointment, an emergency manager shall act for and in the place and stead of the governing body and the office of chief administrative officer of the local government… Following appointment of an emergency manager and during the pendency of receivership, the governing body and the chief administrative officer of the local government shall not exercise any of the powers of those offices except as may be specifically authorized in writing by the emergency manager. In other words, your government officials just got replaced and they can’t do anything relating to the job you elected them to do unless the EM gives their permission to do so.

The emergency manager’s compensation shall be paid by this state and shall be set forth in a contract approved by the state treasurer.

This is likely a direct response to the hue and cry about making local municipalities pay for the person appointed to run their government against their wishes. Also, it allows them to justify one of the appropriations in the bill that makes it referendum-proof.

In addition to the salary provided to an emergency manager in a contract approved by the state treasurer …[the] state may receive and distribute private funds to an emergency manager. As used in this subdivision, “private funds” means any money the state receives for the purpose of allocating additional salary to an emergency manager.

So, this is interesting. The state can receive funds from outside groups to augment the EMs paycheck. Why would that be? Well, there’s history of that. Robert Bobb, the EFM/EM of the Detroit Public Schools for a time, received additional salary from several groups and when you see who they were, you can see how nefarious this two-sentence bit buried in this law actually is. From a Forbes piece on this:

For those of you not familiar with Broad, it is one of the leading foundations promoting school choice and privatization across the country. One might almost think that paying a public official hundreds of thousands of dollars a year might amount to nothing short of bribery, especially given the very specific agenda of a foundation like the Broad Foundation. Now, Bobb is proposing to create charter schools for 16,000 students from 41 schools slated for closure. He argues that this will save millions of dollars. I have to wonder, however, at the conflict of interest.
Let’s zoom out for a moment.
What we have in Detroit is an Emergency Manager appointed by the previous governor who was facing a challenge from the School District which was frustrated by his top-down approach to school reform. That challenge was effectively crushed by the passage of Public Act 4. This same Emergency Manager was a graduate from a foundation that promotes corporate school reform and also pays around a third of his six-figure salary. The Emergency Manager has the power to break union contracts, layoff teachers, and open charter schools that benefit the same foundation that is so heavily invested in the Emergency Manager’s career.
This is nothing short of a coordinated effort between the billionaire foundations pushing school reform and Tea Party conservatives intent on slashing benefits and ending collective bargaining rights. Public schools are under assault by the forces of privatization, and public school teachers face benefit and salary cuts while the very rich are promised tax cuts. ...

... Like with PA 4, the EM may prohibit the local elected or appointed official or employee, agent, or contractor of the local government from access to the local government’s office facilities, electronic mail, and internal information systems.

Banks get paid back in full for any debts owed to them under Section 11(1)(b) which says The payment in full of the scheduled debt service requirements on all bonds, notes, and municipal securities of the local government, contract obligations in anticipation of which bonds, notes, and municipal securities are issued, and all other uncontested legal obligations.

As usual, it’s good to be the king banker.

The EM can reject, modify, or terminate 1 or more terms and conditions of an existing contract as well as reject, modify, or terminate 1 or more terms and conditions of an existing collective bargaining agreement.

The EM does have to submit this to the local government officials who have 10 days to say they don’t want it. If they don’t, they have to submit a plan that achieves the same financial result to the local financial assistance loan board who can approve or deny it.

Act as sole agent of the local government in collective bargaining with employees or representatives and approve any contract or agreement and the sole trustee of the local pension board.

Consolidate or eliminate departments of the local government or transfer functions from 1 department to another and appoint, supervise, and, at his or her discretion, remove administrators, including heads of departments other than elected officials.

Sell, lease, convey, assign, or otherwise use or transfer the assets, liabilities, functions, or responsibilities of the local government..

This, too, must be submitted to the local government officials who can object to the local financial assistance loan board who has the final say.

For municipal governments, with approval of the governor, disincorporate or dissolve the municipal government and assign its assets, debts, and liabilities as provided by law. The disincorporation or dissolution of the local government is subject to a vote of the electors of that local government if required by law.

The first sentence of this section is verbatim out of PA 4. However, the second sentence is new. What I don’t know is if this actually IS required by law.

Take any other action or exercise any power or authority of any officer, employee, department, board, commission, or other similar entity of the local government, whether elected or appointed, relating to the operation of the local government. The power of the emergency manager shall be superior to and supersede the power of any of the foregoing officers or entities.

Remove, replace, appoint, or confirm the appointments to any office, board, commission, authority, or other entity which is within or is a component unit of the local government.

When negotiating contracts worth more the $50,000, the EM may ask the treasurer to make them exempt from competitive bidding. This is a very dubious section since it opens the door to corruption and graft, something many of these governments themselves are often accused of.

One thing the EM cannot do is sell or transfer a public utility furnishing light,
heat, or power without the approval of a majority of the electors of the city or village voting thereon, or a greater number if the city or village charter provides.

Upon appointment of an emergency manager and during the pendency of the receivership, the salary, wages, or other compensation, including the accrual of postemployment benefits, and other benefits of the chief administrative officer and members of the governing body of the local government shall be eliminated.

These can be restored by the EM if they decide they wish to. Maybe if they behave themselves?

Exercise solely, for and on behalf of the school district, all other authority and responsibilities affecting the school district that are prescribed by law to the school board and superintendent of the school district.

Again, there are no requirements that the EM have any educational background whatsoever but they are allowed to essentially replace and act in the place of educational administrators.

An emergency manager is immune from liability.

Not only that, if they do get sued, they will be defended by the state attorney general with the local government picking up the tab, even if they are sued after they leave the job. That’s a great gig, kids.

The EM and their helpers also get, courtesy of the local government, worker’s compensation, general liability, professional liability, and motor vehicle insurance.

This next bit is just so illuminating. It talks about when an EM is going to leave. Here’s the opening line of Section 22:

If an emergency manager determines that the financial emergency that he or she was appointed to manage has been rectified, the emergency manager shall inform the governor and the state treasurer.

If? IF???! What the heck is “if”? Shouldn’t that be “When”??? Aye, aye, aye…


This act does not give the emergency manager or the state financial authority the power to impose taxes, over and above those already authorized by law, without the approval at an election of a majority of the qualified electors voting on the question.

You can always tell when Republicans write legislation, can’t you? EMs can screw over a city two ways from Sunday but they can’t raise taxes to bring in some more revenue.

Finally, there 19 different situations that can trigger the preliminary review process that is the first step in putting a city into receivership and having to choose one of the four poisons offered. Only one of them needs to be met. The last one, carried over from PA 4, is this:

The existence of other facts or circumstances that, in the state treasurer’s sole discretion for a municipal government, are indicative of probable financial stress or that, in the state treasurer’s or superintendent of public instruction’s sole discretion for a school district, are indicative of probable financial stress.

That is so broad and so inclusive and so subjective that it almost begs the question as to why you would even bother to list the other 18 situations. At the end of the day, the state treasurer starts the process for any reason they want; it’s entirely up to them.
This law kicks in on March 28th. Any current Emergency Financial Managers will have to get new business cards that say Emergency Manager but the law doesn’t require any new reviews; they simply get grandfathered in. ...

Michigan Republicans Encourage Medical Discrimination

by GretchenWhitmer

Remember when Michigan Republicans tried to give bullies a religious or moral excuse to torment our kids in school hallways? Unfortunately, they're at it again.
This morning, Republicans once again brought up Senate Bill 136 in the Senate Health Policy Committee, legislation that would allow health care providers to discriminate and refuse care for patients based solely on -- you guessed it -- their religious or moral beliefs. It's legislation that would allow medical personnel to arbitrarily decide to deny care for patients, even in life threatening situations, as long as they can claim it goes against their own personal beliefs.
SB 136 creates frightening scenarios in which pregnant women's lives are put at risk when a doctor refuses to assist during a miscarriage. It allows pharmacists to refuse to fill birth control prescriptions even in communities where prescription drugs are not available anywhere else. It would even allow emergency personnel to refuse to administer life-saving treatment to someone for reasons as simple as that person being gay, of another race, or a different religion.
Put simply, this legislation tells every single person in Michigan that their health and happiness is less important than appeasing the political desires of the extreme right-wing special interest groups in Lansing.
This legislation is dangerous, it goes against every established principle of medicine, and it must be stopped!
We rose up together and demanded these Republicans back down on their "license to bully" and it's time for us to do the same on this terribly misguided "license to malpractice."
As Republicans continue to try to pass this bill, I'm asking that you take just a few moments to contact your State Senator and demand that they put the health of Michigan families above special interest politics by voting NO on Senate Bill 136.
Together, we can send a powerful message once again that the people of Michigan demand better than this from their elected officials.



I'm thinking the people of America ought to be demanding to have their democracy, law and order back, and start locking up proven criminal gangs, even when still in public office.

At CPAC 2010, Schlafly Said Martha Coakley Lost Senate Run Because She's A "Feminist" And "Very Unappealing." During an event at CPAC in 2010, Schlafly said, "I would suggest that one of the reasons why Scott Brown had his magnificent victory in Massachusetts … is that he had the good fortune to have his opponent a feminist. And she was very unappealing." [Media Matters, 2/24/10]

I wonder if Schlafly has changed her tune any now that Scott Brown has had his ass kicked by Elizabeth Warren, and then ran away from the race for Kerry's vacated senate seat like a dog with its tail between its legs ? Probably not. She appears not to have the brains of a gnat! (my apologies to the gnats!)

An unknown to me commenter to CPAC "It was the left that got us into this mess." Hmmm. . . He must be from another galaxy because I sure don't remember Baby Bush et al being part of the left!

Good assessment of CPAC in one short sentence."The craziest of the crazy are now running wild, mindlessly drunk on InsaniTEA." After watching the videos, I would say it is one big circus and some of the performers, the high wire and trapeze performers, have fallen on their heads!
