Onward and Upward

This video is as meaninful now as it was last year.

The final stop in Michigan of the Tea Party Express in Clinton Township was a great success. Now it is time to think about the next event.

On April 15, tax day the Wayne County Taxpayers Association will be cosponsoring the Lansing Tea Party at the steps of the Capitol. The legislature will be in session and it will do them good to know that the people Michigan will not give up our country or state. The Governor, legislators, and special interests want to raise taxes by billions of dollars. With the highest unemployment rate in the country and Michigan per capita income dropping from 9th to 41st in the country we need to send a message to politicians that they must put our economy first and bureaucrats second.

Noon – 1:30 PM
State Capitol lawn, Lansing

Featured Speakers include:

• Attorney General Mike Cox
• Rich Michaels, Host of WMMQ-FM 94.9 Michaels in the Morning
• Joan Fabiano, Grassroots in Michigan
• Kyle Olson, Education Action Group
• Rose Bogaert, Wayne County Taxpayers Association
• Tina DuPont, Tea Party of West Michigan
• Kathy Hoekstra, Mackinac Center for Public Policy

Please show us your support. Send them a message and let them know that we are not going away. If you can not attend in Lansing, and I hope you will, try to make it to one of the local tea parties even if just for a little while. Go to and find a location near you. I will be attending as many as possible.

Helen Barwig and I plan to be in Lansing for the Tea Party on Thursday. The only thing that I wish is that politicians such as Attorney General Mike Cox were not speaking. Mary Mac

Mike Cox will be speaking only about the law suit.

Well, he didn't. He was in full campaign mode in the short time I heard him speak in just walking by on the way to the Capitol. Manoogian Mike was ranting about how the Governor was gleeful about today being tax collection day. The thought hit me: who and what is paying his salary while he campaigns before a bunch of Republican primary voters in the middle of the work day? Perhaps he was taking a late lunch.
