  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    We have a system that increasingly taxes and subsidizes nonwork.

    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

Stabenow and Big Beaver Road

A 21 year-old 9th grade drop out was recently sentenced to jail for prostitution in Michigan.

It’s been a long ride for the 21-year-old Alycia Martin, who is now eight months pregnant and engaged, said her pro bono attorney Frank Cusumano Jr. Martin, who dropped out of high school in the ninth grade and has been on her own since she was in her late teens, is working at a fast food restaurant, has a driver’s license and is working to get her GED. She also voted for the first time in November. But her gas and electric has been shut off and she struggles to buy necessities like food, clothing and baby supplies.

She is, Cusumano said, the most broke she’s ever been — but also the happiest, because she’s a contributing member of society and no longer involved in prostitution.

“My car breaks down every other day,” said Martin, shortly before she was led away by an Oakland County Sheriff’s Office deputy. “There’s nothing I can do. I can’t walk here. And I don’t have money for gas most of the time.”

And what is so noteworthy of this?

Well, she was busted for providing her “services” to none other than Tom Athans.

Mr. Athans is a former executive with AirAmerica, and co-founder of TalkRadio USA Network. But even MORE notable is the fact that he is married to SENATOR DEBBIE STABENOW, D-MICHIGAN.

And while Ms. Martin is going to jail, Tom Athans, Stabenow’s husband since 2003, was not charged in exchange for his assistance in the case. In fact, this whole Big Beaver Road incident only cost him $150, while Ms Martin struggles to survive.

So the next time you hear about Stabenow trying to stifle free speech, think of this story; had it not been for Free Speech, this story would never have been seen or heard by the lowly minions that keep her in office. Just remember: you get what you vote for.

  1. I wonder what the fine is for “regular” people.

  2. That $150 wasn’t the fine; THAT WAS THE COST OF THE HOOKER!!!!!
