My family and extended family personally know some of the Dalgleishes and we are all angry and in shock that Obama/Gettelfinger Motors decided to close this dealership as of this Friday, November 20, 2009.  They received a cold letter to close their dealership, and received no further communication after trying to repeal this decision.  Like many other dealerships in the country, they were profitable and there is no reason for them to close.  Tim and Keith both told us their dealership didn't cost the government a dime. Here is a recent article on this.

Rep. Peters Statement On H.R. 3962

Congressman Gary Peters released the following statement today regarding his decision to support H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act:

"After thoroughly studying the bill and talking with thousands of Oakland County residents and medical professionals, it is clear we must act to lower health care costs for families, seniors and businesses. This plan's reform is market-based; expanding choice, competition and stability; makes our system more efficient and does not add to the deficit. AARP supports this bill because Medicare would be strengthened, closing the prescription drug donut hole and providing new preventative care at no cost for seniors.

The townhall he was referring to with 800 people was all rigged. I was there, his supporters all wore little stickers on their shirts indicating they wanted reform. There were 100s of them and there were let in through side doors before we could get in.  The questions were staged, it got so bad, I couldn't stand it and had to leave.  The thousands of business people he mentioned that he talked to, again, more lies.  I know some of them that went to see him during the last rally in DC.  They clearly presented their case that the current bill as is would not work and that they were against it.  Peters just squirmed and said he hadn't made up his mind yet. The next day he voted yes.

Today I sent him a pink slip.

Congressman Peters' voting record is shameful.  He pretended to run as a moderate democrat and turned into a Pelosi whipping boy, voting straight down party line.  His support for Cap and Tax and the otrocious health care bill topped it off.  See his voting record here:
His constituents keep writing, calling, faxing him to vote no on the important issues, but he pretends not to hear us.  When someone actually gets to meet with him, his positions are always undecided, and wham, the next day he will vote against his constituents wishes. I imagine he thinks of himself as invincible, considering the amount of money he already collected fundraising towards the next election.  It is about $ 1,2 Mill by now.  See his contributions here here and here
His constituents don't mean anything to him, he's totally beholden to his contributors and lobbyists. The money will keep pouring in.  But in the end he will need to get the votes of his constituents.  That's why we have to keep working hard on getting him exposed for what he is, let it be known that he is not working for us, never has.
We have to work hard to support a candidate that is a true conservative that will work for us, that wants to serve, unselfishly and a believer in  the constitution. A person of strong character, a leader and  fighter, one that has experience both on the political scene and in private business.
I bet you can guess who I am thinking of.

Although a beautiful day outside, approximately 150 people gathered inside the Commissioners Auditorium in Pontiac to listen to Rocky's presentation.  No photos were allowed to be taken.
Rocky is an excellent speaker (thankfully, he doesn't use a teleprompter) and he gave us a brief history on how we got to where we are now, starting with the Gulf War under Bush 1. A series of videos and still photos followed, some of them very graphic, some of them shocking, so much so that my mouth dropped open, as in Oh My God.  Everything he showed us or told us about was declassified and can be found on Open Secrets. He had two soldiers in the audience that had served with him overseas and they contributed not only to the presentation, but also gave big Kudos to Rocky for his leadership, courage and abilities.

There was a reporter in the audience from "Reporting Michigan" who took notes (I didn't, shame on me), but here is his report Please note on this article that Rocky is a Major and not Captain.  Surely an honest mistake on the author's part.

I am grateful to Rocky that he was willing to share his experience with us and it confirmed what kind of person he is, the kind that loves his country and that we need to represent us. Rocky is running for Congress, 9th district in Michigan, against Gary Peters who refuses to listen to his constituents.

Thank you Rocky Raczkowski for your service to this country. Thank you for wanting to continue to serve.

Veterans Day Message from Rocky Raczkowski

"On my last tour of duty in Somalia, I can remember being asked by one of my men, 'Major, if you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?' And without hesitation, I said to him, 'home in Michigan.' I know that every man and woman in the service feels the same way. We love America, our home, and can't wait to get back.

"When I came home a couple of months ago, I was overjoyed to see family and friends but was saddened to see that America wasn't the same and that some of our boundless hope and optimism had been replaced by fear and worry, especially about the sagging economy and job losses.

"So, on this Veterans Day, as brave men and women make sacrifices for us in the most dangerous places in the world and dream about returning home, let's resolve to do everything in our power to make the America our troops come home to stronger, safer and more prosperous. Let's get our economy creating jobs again so that we can replace every 'for sale' sign with a 'help wanted' sign. That's the best tribute we can give to everyone who has ever proudly worn the uniform of the U.S. military. I welcome you to join me in getting the job done."

NOTE: Don't forget to RSVP for my special briefing on the Global War on Terror, Saturday, at 10:30 am in the Oakland County Commissioners' Auditorium, 1200 N. Telegraph, Pontiac. There are a few seats left so let me know if you are coming at . Click here for more information.

"Rocky" Raczkowski is running for the 9th Congressional Seat against Gary Peters who just sold us out to Pelosi.
As big government liberals celebrated House approval of their plan to take over America's health care system, Rocky Raczkowski today focused on the crux of the issue: freedom. "Liberal special interests are chipping away at our freedom," said Rocky. "In a world with more than 100,000 I-phone applications, health care solutions should focus on more freedom and more choices. But liberals want to force every American into a one-size-fits-all government-run health care system that takes away our freedom."

In You Will Support Abortions Under New Healthcare Bill I wrote about two passages in the Democrat's healthcare bill that encouraged your taxpayer money to be spent on aborting babies. But after Demcrats fought hard to prevent a vote on this issue, morality prevailed, and a group of Democrats voted with Republicans to successfully ban federal funds for abortion under the public health insurance option in the bill and prohibit federal subsidies for purchasing health plans covering abortion.

The amendment does not impose a new federal abortion policy since it simply continues what has been the law in the United States since 1977. The vote was a roll call vote of 240-194.

Voting against this amendment was Michigan's 9th District Congressman, Democrat Gary Peters. He supports using taxpayer money to fund abortions, and felt that some of the $1.2 trillion dollars the federal government will spend under this health care bill should be used to encourage and support women who choose to abort their babies.

Gary Peters, elected out of a district that used to be solidly Republican, has now voted to increase taxes and regulation for energy, increase taxes and regulation for healthcare, and now to fund the expansion of abortions. Gary Peters is no blue-dog- based on his voting record, he is as liberal as they come, and voters in his district need to vote next election to throw him out of office before he works any longer on destroying Michigan jobs.

The recent election events must have caused a stir in Washington, even though they won't admit it (yet).  It is a known fact that two of our congressmen, Schauer and Peters are very vulnerable come next election.  Both are junior legislators in DC, both voted along party lines at the most distressed times Michigan ever saw.  Two new candidates are already looking to replace Peters, namely Rocky Raczkowski and Paul Welday.  Yes, the heat is on, and it will get hotter,  that's why VP Joe Biden thought it best to swing by for a quick fundraiser for the two dems.  Tickets are $ 1000 pp. More here from the AP

While New Jersey and Virginia Republicans are celebrating their last night victory, so is Michigan 19th district.  Republican and former house member Mike Nofs, by some considered a big spender and endorsed by the SEIU and MEA won the election big time over Martin Griffin.  Let's hope he sticks to his word and brings down the Michigan Business Tax. He hopes to get sworn in as soon as possible to help with the Michigan economy. 

Detroit Mayor Bing won his re-election.  By many considered a big improvement over Kwame Kilpatrick,  he has a big problem to overcome - the City is out of money.  But many think Tuesday's election brings some stability to the mayor's office and promises a new direction for the City Council, which has been the subject of a federal corruption probe that led to the conviction of Councilwoman Monica Conyers for taking bribes.

In other areas of Michigan more victory for some, but disappointing for others:  Kalamazoo voters approve anti-discrimination ordinance by a wide margin.  Kalamazoo is now the 16th city in Michigan to receive these rights.  Will a town near you be next?

All in all, a good day for Republicans, here and NY, NJ and VA.  But President Obama said, he didn't watch any of this as it really doesn't mean anything.  Really!?
