Here is an interesting article about what is really going on in Oakland County's Gary Peters' district. It's really not all as rosy as he would like you to believe. In his op-ed today in the Oakland Press he claims that we gained some 25,000 new jobs. I say, no way, unemployment is as high as ever. Maybe he was counting the temporary census workers or a number of new government employees. His lack of honesty and transparency leaves me wondering.
Here is a great blog just about that - nothing is happening. Construction has halted and jobs are lost.
Here is another take on the recent namecalling by Gary Peteres, namely calling Rocky Raczkowski a "teabagger" http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2010/09/027279.php
There was another article today in the Oakland Press that really upset me. GOP activists are turning against one of the best candidates, (besides Rocky) Justin Amash, an Icaucus endorsed candidate who posted each and every one of his votes on Facebook for complete transparency. Yes, he is a true conservative and votes accordingly, how can anyone be too conservative after what we have been observing the last 18 months. This is what a fellow blogger wrote about this: http://reclaimmichigan.blogspot.com/2010/09/justin-amash-obstructionist-or.html
