Title: One has to wonder what Whitmer is smoking...
Post by: SidecarFlip on March 11, 2019, 02:46:45 PM
This begs a new thread...lol

One has to wonder what Whitmer is thinking (or is she capable of rational thought) when it comes to fixing Michigan Roads.  Imposing a 42 cent per gallon motor fuel tax on Michigan citizens is insane, especially coupled with the no-fault MCCA addendum.

People cannot afford that in this state.  Maybe she and her cronies can but I cannot.

I thought DeWhine at 21 cents was insane.  Guess if she imposes a 42 cent surcharge, I'll be back to buying Ohio gas again.  No way am I funding her insane plan if I can help it.

I don't see it happening with a Republican controlled house and senate though.

And what makes the 42 cents worse is not all of it is going to the roads.  That's just plain ignorant to propose that big of an increase to fix something that's been neglected for years and then only use part of it to fix the roads...If the republicans buy into this they are as stoopid as her.

I don't think they will.  No reason to.  In fact, no reason to buy into any of her hair brained ideas.  I always find it interesting that politicians promise the world when running for office and then when they get elected, get a brain fart.

Like DeWhine in Ohio.  Promised no new taxes and then wham, new taxes.  At least DeWhine only did HALF as much.  Witless went all out.

 I really wish Brian Calley was governor.  At least he has some common sense.

The file picture the rags use don't she look just like Granholm?  That evil smile.

If you actually take a hard look at Whitless' bill (I did, I read it carefully), the BULK of the proposed 42 cent a gallon tax increase on motor fuel DOES NOT GO toward road funding at all.  Goes everywhere else but.

She is in my view, an idiot and I sure am glad I didn't vote for her, another Granholm wanna be...  Having said that I didn't vote for Shittey either.  Sad state of affairs when all to chose from for governor is a dimwit (Whitmer) and a crook (Schutte).

Of course the big issue that has been swept under the table (conveniently) is the Line 5 issue.  Why do I think the oil lobby is greasing Whitmer?  I must be imagining it.

So here we are, we have a dork for governor who somehow thinks that Michigander will eat a 42 cent a gallon fuel tax (which they won't) and has amnesia concerning Line 5.  If Whitless and her lesbo AG (Nessel) would have left Snyder's agreement alone, by now, Enbridge would be well into the tunnel and line 5 would become a distant memory in a year.

But no, line 5 is still there, like a time bomb and Whitless has forgotten about it (conveniently) and is concentrating on fleecing the taxpayers to fund her pipe dream 42 cent fuel tax increase that of which the bulk of the increase WON'T go to roads, but everywhere else.

I'm thankful the Republican House and Senate realizes the fastest way to not get reelected is support Whitless' fantasy, but by the same token they should be pressuring her and the lesbo AG to get pro-active on Line 5.

What a mess Lansing is.  It's always been a mess but now it's a disaster.

I sincerely hope we have a viable (and sane) candidate to run against this idiot next election.

My 2 cents for what it's worth.

I think she was hoping that no one would notice that.

She really thinks we are all dumb dumb dumb.

It's the Granholm attitude.  So fat, she has done NOTHING constructive except collect a fat paycheck on the backs of Michiganders (and I suspect taken dark money from the oil lobby).

Total waste. (and will continue to be a total waste), you'd think that people would realize that every Democrat operates under the same set of rules.  Screw the little people.

sounds like vaping is a huge problem with the little kiddies in schools.  More kids doing it more than all the other bad stuff, drugs, pills, smokes, alcohol combined.

Her picture accompanied the article (in the Telegram).  She looks pretty 'smoked' to me...lol  Didn't that hairdo she has go out in the 60's?

She has her priorities as governor all screwed up but then I expect no less from a Democrat.

Looks like showdown on state budget, as I predicted. Jenny Whitmer is ticked off her 45 cent gas tax didn't fly. I don't expect she ever thought it would. After all when her puke opponent, what's his name, charged she sought a 20 cent gas tax increase she scoffed at the idea as ridiculous. Now she's ticked the pukes because they aren't on board for a tax increase twice as much as she herself called ridiculous.

Thing is she never really explained how she would "fix the damn roads, but it sounded great. Fortunately, people were tired of Snyder (man had the personality of a rock) and an opponent that was less than inspiring.  Perfect storm for a Dem like Whit to win guv.

So we'll go for a term, or God forbid two, where we'll get another lesson on how bad progressives can be.

Wonder how many southern Michigan folks would buy their gas in Ohio if we raised our gas tax 45 cents. Wonder how Gretchen would respond to that question. Expect you'd go away thinking "what"?

Maybe she would build a wall to keep us from going into Ohio to buy gas.

They would probably add a question to the income tax form where you would have to say how many gallons you bought but didn't consume in other states, and then you would pay it with your income taxes.

I'm sure everyone would give a proper accounting.

This one made me laugh.

Does Whitmer not realize that in her analogy she is playing the roll of Trump?

Or does she just believe that the Republicans are automatically at fault, and she bears no responsibility for not accepting a budget that was passed?

As time goes on I am more and more certain that she is a complete idiot.

That's absolutely nuts. Therefore, I'd take odds she'd propose it.

I mostly buy my gas wherever it's the cheapest, Ohio or Michigan, don't care.  If whitless did get a huge tax increase, I WOULD buy in Ohio for sure.  Kroger don't care where you go, gas points work everywhere.

To me. gasoline is like mouthwash all the same, different labeling.

So we have 45,000 FULL TIME STATE EMPLOYEES.  All I can say is wow.  Sounds like bloated government to me.

And yes, I'm glad you finally came to the conclusion that Whitless is an idiot MN.  I'm not all that bright of a bulb but I realized that about 6 months ago.

She's a moron.

Heading down the Granholm road of darkness again.

I guess Whitmers plan to "Fix the Damn Roads" is to do more with less.

It was insane for her to propose a 45 cent fuel tax in the first place.  No sane person would approve of that, especially when the public actually found out how the revenue would be distributed, in typical Democrat fashion, where the bulk of the revenue would never go to the 'advertised' receiver, the roads.

Always double talk and smoke and mirrors with any Democrat.  The 'tax and spend' philosophy don't play well anymore.

Whitmer is whitless.  Like I said, just another Granholm wannabe.

You'd think the people in this state would wise up but then I guess not.

Its too bad the voters decided to elect Whitmer and Dana - or we may have actually moved the state forward.

What we are witnessing right now is 4 years of politically biased stagnation as Whitmer and her cohort Nessel attempt to revert Michigan back to the Granholm 'dark ages' days.  I find it hard to believe she was elected but at the same time, her mainstream opponent, Schutte was not electable either.  Citizens faced with 2 bad choices are going to chose one (people will always color in one box rather than leave it blank).  I left it blank myself.

Right now the only saving grace we have is the Republican dominated legislature or we would be surely sunk in the morass that Whitmer wants but when she was stumping for office, never alluded to.  Typical lying pandering politician.  Tell the voters what they want to hear and when elected, do what you dam well please to do and ignore what the voters want.

Buster Brown (Whitmer) and Tide (Nessel) are quite a pair and neither one are good for the Stare, just good for personal agenda's.

4 years of darkness and hopefully only 4 years.

I think John Kopke should run for Governor with Bob Beadles as AG.  That would be very interesting.

She is a ROCKSTAR in the Progressive world?

Why you ask?

Because she is willing to ignore pesky things like Constitutions and Laws - and instead pursues her personal ideology as if that were law.

Progressives like that sort of thing.

four more years of Trump and a republican Congress just might set the progressives back a touch.  And maybe a couple more conservatives on the SCOTUS.  At least one more..

The Line 5 agreement and law weren't unconstitutional like Dana and Whitless says they were.

Those two are totally useless.

I look at it this way...  When it fails (and it will at some point), Whitless and her lesbo AG won't be in office so they will skate scott free.

Enbridge is bearing the full cost of construction, let them build it and put the line inside as well as all the other utilities that cross the straits and be done with it.

No, not Whitless.  What a tool.  Granholm understudy...
