First off, DeVos was in town yesterday for our county's Reagan Day Dinner. His speaking is much improved from the debates, and he makes a good case in replacing our current "Matt Millen" of governors.
I missed the fiasco at the Howell School Board meeting going on at the same time but talked to a few people for a recap. For background information, go to Wendy Day's blog. Apparantly, the place was backed and split about 50/50 between her supporters and opposition. Much of the opposition have turned out to be real jokers and then some with their personal attacks. Granted what I heard there is secondhand, but I've seen the firsthand stuff on this blog. A couple of jokers on Wendy Day's blog are resorting to the juvenille (apologies to juveniles) tactic of posting under someone else's name (including mine). That's just stupid. This stuff makes Kevins/Communications Guru look like a statesman. At least he posts under his own screenname and gives an arguement.
Let's put this thing into some perspective. You have a few establishment types all in a snit because Wendy posted information about a SILENT protest organized by a chuch in Virginia. Wendy herself only made one comment about this supporting free speech. Granholm pushed for a similar type of protest over gay issues a few years back. I doubt the same people all in a snit over this had one over Granholm's event. Let's at least have some consistancy here. Also, why is the left so up in arms about ONE person on the school board.
Also, rumor has it that Howell Schools' tax raising leader Bonnie White is behind the recall and is passing out fliers promoting it. I also heard that any recall effort against Wendy will be brought against at least three of the sitting Howell School Board members. If there's one recall, they will all recall.
I can't speak for the LOVE Group as I'm not a member. However, as a member and former treasurer of the Concerned Taxpayers Group and its PAC, I'll be urging our members to get involved in any recall attempt/defense if either A. A fiscal conservative is being recalled or B. A big spender is being recalled. This is as much about fiscal issues as it is social issues, especially when Bonnie White is involved in this.
My own preference - No recalls, and settle everything in the scheduled elections.
