Picking winners and losers

"Picking winners and losers"

Often heard from the right-wing on this site but I thought I'd mention some examples of their hypocrisy.

Michigan governor cuts jobless benefits for 2012

Governor Snyder Promotes Local Government Reforms In Michigan
Funding in the program’s first year will be available to communities that are expected to receive more than $6,000 annually under the existing revenue sharing system.
To qualify, eligible municipalities must meet best practices in the categories of accountability and transparency, service consolidation and employee compensation cost controls. These include producing a citizens’ guide to the community’s finances by Oct. 1, 2011, as well as a “dashboard” to measure performance; and addressing employee compensation issues as any new, modified or extended contracts are negotiated.  Municipalities will receive one-third of their funding for each category of best practices that they meet.

Yep....picking winners and losers.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.
