WASHINGTON -- Gov. Jennifer Granholm and former U.S. Rep. David Bonior will serve on a panel of financial luminaries and corporate experts advising President-elect Barack Obama on the nation’s hard-bitten economy, ensuring Michigan, its troubled auto industry and labor has a seat at the table.
That's about as smart as appointing Ted Nugent to PETA's board of directors. What the hell was he thinking? Granholm's legacy on the economy are service tax increases, business tax increase, sin taxes, income taxes, tax shifts, fee increases, surcharges, unemployment, people leaving the state, debt, big government regulation, a push for a gas tax, pork projects for a $116 million dollar state police building, government picking winners and losers,
This country and state voted for Obama, so don't bitch to me. It's time for you to assume the position! "Thank you sir, may I have another!"
As the Motorhead classic song Dogs goes
Here we are in the years
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Have made us bondage slaves
In a world that we never made,
The politicians lick our bones,
The tacticians, hearts of stone
They turn us against our brothers
Make us fight and kill each other
Locked in lust we put our trust in dogs
Here we are again,
The dead still look the same
Who cares they're soon forgotten
Nobody gonna miss a corpse that's rotten
Your fathers, mothers, daughters, sons
Have been taken by the chosen ones
But don't you forget you made the choice,
You made your mark, you raised your voice,
They're all the same, you're all to blame
Yes, I blame the voters. They're dogs.
