Bart made this deal and announced it on the 19th, but considering all the dancing that has been happening in the last few days, how are we to know this did not have something to do with his ‘yes’ vote on ObamaDeathcare? If this does have something to do with it, then Bart is one cheap whore.
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Bart Stupak (D-Menominee) announced three airports in northern Michigan have received grants totaling $726,409 for airport maintenance and improvements. The funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration.
“This federal funding will help these airports better provide critical services to communities in northern Michigan,” Stupak said. “I am pleased the FAA has made this investment in our local airports and the individuals and businesses they serve.”
Alpena County Regional Airport received a grant of $85,500 to acquire friction measuring equipment, specifically a decelermeter and tow vehicle, to replace equipment that has worn out.
Delta County Airport in Escanaba received a grant of $179,209 to install a 10 foot perimeter fence to enhance security and prevent wildlife from entering the airport.
The Chippewa County International Airport near Sault Ste. Marie received a grant of $461,700 to install lighted signs on Runway 16/34 and make repairs to the pavement to meet marking requirements and maintain structural integrity.
This funding is provided to the FAA through the regular federal appropriations process and is awarded through competitive grants.
The alternative to Bart Stupak? Dan Benishek who has gone from a few hundred to over 11,000 fans on Facebook in a few hours.
I am very, very, very, cranky today, and I’m know I am going take a lot of heat for some of the statements included in this post, but I am saying things that I believe more people than just myself believe.
I do not support Hillary Clinton’s progressive, socialist, global one-governmentness, and ever since I did the research on her and found her to be more ‘red’ than Barry, I just find that everything she says and does is 100% suspect. I also find that because of Hillary Clinton, I no longer trust any politician or voice in the spot-light, including Sarah Palin. Sorry Sarah; I love ya to death, but I am still waiting for the other shoe to drop on you too. (You know you are thinking the same thing about numerous leaders right now.)
The “people in charge” just do not get it. The average American salary is around $40K, not $150K or $1 Million, but they keep spending our money on causes that we do not espouse like we are all millionaires. If I still had my 42K job, and was “allowed” to keep most of what I earned, then I would be able to meet my financial obligations, afford healthcare, and still give to charities. Not then…not now…because of the tax burden due to stupidity like Copenhagen, the stupidity of the Bush administration that sunk us into two wars, the stupidity of administrations and congresses in the past who believed in entitlements for all, and the stupidity of this congress that thought giving away trillions was the best idea for saving the economy and our jobs. I am sick to death of all of them, and the time for a reset is coming.
Meanwhile, we are still staring at this, which was caused by those previous administrations and congresses, and I for one, am trying to figure out how one balances that clock against reality; and then just throw in the dems’ willy-nilly perchant for wasting our money hither and yon with what appears to be bribes and pay-offs. This government is pledging to give the UN $100 Billion for a farce, it gave $300 Million to Mary Landrieu for her healthcare vote, and $38 Billion to Citibank for god knows what, (and let’s not forget the $1.1 Trillion Spending Increase.)
Exactly how much money is there in the world, and where is Lee Ioccoca when ya need him?
I rolled off my chair when Glenn talks about Mary Landrieu being a hooker that does not come cheap with her $300 million “Louisiana Purchase” vote.
Glenn covers how both parties have nailed the coffin shut on our republic and how we need to step up and start leading the leaders. Shtuey over at Oh..My Valve! came up with the 50% solution a year and one day ago where Americans take a stand and make the parties bring candidates to us that we will vote for. THIS is the same concept. It is sad that it has taken this long to get the ball rolling, but the upside is that it will exponentially grow from this point – enough Americans are awake.
I also will be adding the Horowitz interview as soon as it becomes available, because I already can see people looking for it.
