Use of GasolineTaxes

Rick Snyder….you want to raise the gasoline tax in Michigan?  I suggest that you take a long, long, long hard look at where this will take you.  Use your business sense!  You would never “Rob Peter to Pay Paul”, would you?

Let us use the average “normal” of the sale of 400,000,000 gallons of gasoline a month.  Now, it has been two years since this State has been devoid of the “Socialist Moron” that the unions so happily voted in twice.  With that being said, I will not hold you accountable for the monetary mismanagement that transpired on her ineffective leadership.  However, I am now expecting you to do the right thing.

Since 1978, 90% of all “gasoline” taxes were to go to the roads and infrastructure in the State of Michigan.  It was passed into law!  It has not been recinded!  This law did not say, “Oh, let us use it for mass transportation in Macomb, Wayne or Genese Counties”.  90% is to go to roads!

So let us both do some simple math:

400,000,000×12= 4,800,000,000 (that is Gallons of Gasoline per year) oh, by the way, we are not counting diesel fuels sold.

4,800,000,000 gallons x $.19 per gallon tax (Michigan only)= $912,000,000.00 per year

2 years as Governor = $1,824,000,000.00 for roads, bridges and infrastructure in the State of Michigan.  This does not include any of the monies that are usurped from the truckers in this State.

Okay, so you are at loggerheads!  What do I do? You take the Federal Monies, (for Federal Highways) and you use that to fix them, and only them!  You remove the Davis Bacon/Prevailing Wage Requirements on State, County and Local roads, avenues, courts, boulevards, streets, cul de sacs, drives etc, etc., etc.

Rick, I have been in the Construction Business for 33 years.  I can build, fix, repair more roads and bridges for $3,648,000,000.00 for any politician’s political term, under those conditions, than you can raising the taxes on hard working Michiganders!!!

Principles vs Winning

So, did you see the tall blonde bimbette during the course of the last week?  Ann Coulter!  One day she is talking about Rubio, Paul and God only knows who else giving up on the “Republican” principles and the next day or so she is on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox telling Sean that ‘Principles are fine, but, you need to win’

Sean, I realize that you are the “opinion” portion of Fox News, but, you have this ditz on many more times and I will start to refer to you as Faux News.  Granted, she obtained her law degree from one of my favorite universities in the Country, but this woman has become dumber than a “box of rocks”

You call yourself a “Conservative” then act like it when you have your intellect and principles challenged by someone that appears to be losing both!

Fair Share GOP vs Bovine Feces

The last I checked, and I do it quite frequently, there is not one person that is a greater recipient of Government goodies when they pay more in taxes.  It seems to me that the family of 4 that makes $200,000.00 pays more in taxes than the family of 4 that makes $50,000.00 pays in taxes.

Since the family of 4 pays a higher percentage of their income, and their income is higher, should they not get “their fair share” from the government?  Both families drive the same roads.  Both families use the same hospitals.  Both families pay the same amount of taxes on the groceries that they buy.  Why would you not expect the one that pays more into the “Great and Powerful Government” get more from the “Great and Powerful Government”?

Somehow, it never seems to work that way!  The more you work, the more you pay, the less the “Great and Powerful Government” gives you back.  Seems kinda bass ackwards if you were to ask me.

Black, white, yellow, brown or red…you can malign him all you want for…oh I don’t know, maybe cheating on his wife, being a Baptist Deacon, being a member of the Tea Party, fixing the worst division of Burger King, Bringing Godfather Pizza back from the depths of despair or the worst possible thing to call a “Strong Black Man in America” a Republican!  You know who I am talking about.  You know his name.  Mr. 999!  Mr. everybody needs skin in the game.  When Herman Cain through his hat in the ring I was for this man.  The same as when Alan Keyes ran for the same office.  Just as I believe that Dr. Carson would make a good candidate.  But, to paraphrase Alan West, the liberals hate a strong, black, colorblind, conservative Republican.

I lived in New York when Tawana Brawley started her great lie and The ‘reverend’ (on purpose) al sharpton, C. Vernon Mason and Mr. Mattox all stormed to her side.  Not because she was telling the truth but because they could make money in creating another divide between the races.  This is the practice of liberals, bar color.  This is a practice that most Conservatives do not engage in.  The difference is most people do not know or understand what Winston Churchill meant when he said “a lie will get half way around the world before the truth even has a chance to get it’s pants on”

So the next time you hear a ‘Conservative Black Man or Woman” speak, close your eyes and open your brain and listen to them.  You may find that they are the ones telling you the truth, like it or not, and they are not the uncle toms of the world.  They are not sellouts.  They are not the enemy.  They are giving you a perspective that existed when they were young, when both parents were in the house, when (forget the color barrier for one moment) we excelled as a Nation.

Let us, as a Nation, get back soon, before we parish.
