How many divisions does Jack Lessenberry have?

by: Eric B.

Mon Dec 09, 2013 at 14:24:09 PM EST

Lots of people are sharing social media links about various media outlets editorialiizing against the rape insurance petition the House will probably endorse this week, committing yet one more end around of the democratic process. Jack Lessenberry is the latest.

He is absolutely correct in every word he writes. Even the way he dots his Is and crosses his Ts is fatually, logically and ethically correct. There's a slight problem.

The people who run our ongoing experiment in the Dunning-Kruger effect don't care. They aren't interested in clever editorials or sound reasoning. Time and again, all they've demonstrated an interest in is what they can get away with. We saw this with their end around of the democratic process regarding the emergency manager law, we saw this with the way the ramrodded Right to Work through the process, we've seen this every time they've moved something without immediate effect without two-thirds votes in favor, we've seen this with the way they've adopted wolf hunting legislation.

They aren't interested. They don't care, and all the wise and well reasoned editorial writing on the planet isn't going to make a damn bit of difference.

True (4.00 / 1)
The events in the Capitol this very day and tomorrow a year ago convinced me that you're right. They didn't give a dam what people thought as long as they were in a safe, gerrymandered districts and were taking down a traditional opponent, unions.

Lessenberry and democracy in Michigan (0.00 / 0)
I have gazed with wonderment at the total dismemberment of the democratic process in Michigan. For many, many years I have tried to convince myself that the process had been utterly destroyed in Arizona, not so, Michigan can now claim status as the most ridiculed among red states.

Let us pray the morally bankrupt imbeciles who populate the legislature don't smoke their way into depriving State of their trip to the Roses.

Except that Michigan is a BLUE state (4.00 / 2)
Really, we have the majority of voters behind us - it's not like Utah or Alabama. It's just that we lose all the elections.

It's like a football coach who has a collection of very talented players, who make up a very poor team because they don't work together, suffer from weak leadership, and generally get out-witted by their less-talented competition.

If an NFL team performed as poorly as the MDP (0.00 / 0)
The owner would fire everyone from the general manager down to the guy who launders the sweat socks and jockstraps; change the team's name, colors, and animal mascot; and move the team's training camp and declare the old one a Superfund site.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

How do you think Lon Johnson became chair?

Not the Ford family! (0.00 / 0)
The Fords are one of those owner families well known for their loyalty to coaches and staff and general managers.
