2016 Election

Seriously folks…

So many people want to bitch about the candidates and their qualities, or the lack of qualities. Does anyone stop and think about how we got into this mess? We got into this mess because no one really cares about what is happening to our country. Oh sure we see some news on the internet or TV and think “this isn’t right, something has to be done”. But does it ever get done? Nope. Why? Because we are all fat dumb and happy sitting in front of the TV or computer. 50 years ago none of these candidates would even be allowed on the stage, let alone actually run for the presidency of the United States. All I can tell you is people better wake up because our country is being stolen from us, right before your eyes. When voting this November remember that the next president of the United States will be appointing at least 3 Supreme Court Justices. These are life long positions and will shape the future of our country for the next 1/4 century. If you believe that we need more Government meddling in our lives, more illegal immigrants coming in and making decisions about how your tax money is spent, stealing your retirement funds, your kids college tuition, then Democrat is the way to go. If you want less government, the ability to protect yourself from the illegals, the ability to retire at a decent age, maybe you want to think about voting Republican. Regardless of what you think of the candidate you need to vote for the future of our country. Don’t throw your vote away on a “third Party” candidate. They don’t stand a chance in hell of winning, so you better vote for the candidate that best suits your way of life.

I’m Back!

I have taken the Summer and Fall off. So much to do in beautiful Northen Michigan. We spent the last few months enjoying everything this beautiful land has to offer. But again I find things that our State Government does that just  doesn’t make sense.

My Wife and son wanted to go fishing this summer. Something that we used to enjoy but for the last few years have been to busy to enjoy. Imagine my suprise when I learned that it would cost us $25.00 each to get a fishing liscence. There is no way we would catch enough fish to pay for $75.00 in fees.

Yet again the state prices things so that the average person can’t or won’t pay the price. I didn’t want to fish for salmon, trout or anything like that, but I am forced to buy those stamps also. I wanted to fish for pan fish and just spend some time at the river with my son and wife. So instead of spending such high fees, we did something else and the state made no money from us.

How much money is the state losing because they have raised the fees? We will never know, but I will bet it will be enough that they have to raise fees again to cover the loss.
