LOOK AT HOW many PUBLIC OFFICIALS ARE eager and WILLING

- TO MARCH TO THEIR TUNES,

- TO DANCE THEIR DANCE and

- ALL THE MACHINATIONS THEY’RE WILLING TO GO THROUGH,

to gain access to OUR OWN TAX MONEY that these people forced us to pay,

to some politically controlled enterprise.

certified expert hoodwinkers.

WE’VE BEEN THERE BEFORE

- LISTENED glibly, GULLIBLY ABOUT THEIR SO-CALLED

-PROMISES THAT NEVER MATERIALIZED.

Have these people EVER been FORCED to pay back their tax breaks, tax abatement when their glorious schemes failed?

What about that Dog and Pony show at the Fair Grounds that …

Working American men and women have been subsidizing the captains of finance and industry in all of these activities since the 1960’s…

Only, when workers gained the ability to negotiate with the rich,

both republicans and democrats and

the TITANs of industry and FINANCE,

did the standard of living rise for working class Americans..

Legal American men and women, and non-working, legal Americans

have paid the heavy social, economic and related price when the

CAPTAINS/TITANS/CHAMPIONS

of

DECEIPT

INDUSTRY

FINANCE

and

THE POLITICAL LAW MAKING PROCESS...

All of them together waged ECONOMIC and POLITICAL

war AGAINST

American workers, ultimately inflicting their

COLLECTIVE GREED

Into/onto the rest of the worlds working class citizens.

If these SELF-SERVING rich people, their corporations and schemes were

- so INTENT,

- so CONCERNED

- so OVERWHELMINGLY WORRIED

ABOUT

- INVESTMENT - JOB CREATION

- JOB RETENTION and RELATED ECONOMIC GROWTH

WHERE WERE THESE PEOPLE and

- WHAT WERE THEY THINKING

- WHEN THEY forgot about us

- WHEN THEY OUTSOURCED

- OUR JOBS and…

their

- INVESTMENT MONEY - ELSEWHERE - instead of at home

- JOB CREATION - ELSEWHERE - instead of at home

- JOB RETENTION -ELSEWHERE - instead of at home

- RELATED ECONOMIC GROWTH - ELSEWHERE - instead of at home?

These WORDS

are just euphemism’s aimed squarely at promotion of tax and economic windfalls for the rich,

AND

their corporations…

Gov’nr Snyder wants to GIVE $400 MILLION dollars of OUR tax money to

MULTI-BILLIONAIR Mikey & Marian IlItch of a 5th rate pizza chain-fame,

to build a HOCKY RINK

At the expense of working and non-working stiffs!

Are you ready ?

Here is comes again

lotsa words for more schemes by the rich, the corporations to benefit from OUR TAX DOLLARS with

platitudes, and

glib words about how “we can improve”

our impoverished economic lot!

“…before the resulting corporation can take advantage of tax cuts and state funding aimed to

encourage investment,

job creation,

job retention, and

related economic growth …”

When and where, have so many paid so few to

“take advantage of tax cuts and state funding aimed to encourage the rich to spend our money for:

INVESTMENT

JOB CREATION

JOB RETENTION

and

RELATED ECONOMIC GROWTH !

Oh Yippee! another economic study, another government committee.

Another bureaucratic expense to line some legal beagles wallet.

You want economic benefit to the UP, legalize marijuana.

A double shot in the arm, sell it in the vacant Delta Mall.

Of course, it wouldn't hurt if the UP added 250-350,000 residents to our area.

Casperson & McBroom ran on the promise of bring jobs to the U.P. Are these the jobs they promised - serving on a committee to figure out how to bring jobs to the U.P.? Seems to me Casperson is doing a fine job of filling his buddies' pockets with money, and McBroom is a true mystery man - a mystery as to how he got elected and a bigger mystery of what has he done for anyone in the U.P. except his family & friends since getting in - maybe "their" jobs are the ones they promised - all two of them. Excellent work, fellas! You two have really turned things around.
