What's The Worst That Could Happen If Schuette Wins?


Recommended Posts

First don't be scared, if your within the law your ok. Lets not jump to any conclusions yet. We need to gather facts and ammo to prepare to counterattack if he pursues any action violatioofnthis law. Does anyone have any news paper statements Schuette may have made. We need a detailed list of every thing he said in 2008 about this law and what it would allow. Post it on the site. Probably need a Schuette Watch forum to keep up on anything we hear or need to know

As long as we have a 60/40 public support in our favor, he has an uphill battle.

 

I talked to John Moolenaar. Asked him what he thought of Medical Marijuana. Against it. Asked him if he had talked to any Patients. Said no.

 

Told him he was talking to one. Seemed surprised. Told him my situation. Back surgery. Not wanting to rely on pain pills and/or muscle relaxers.

 

Said he never looked at it in that light. My guess is that most Republicans vote against it, just because.... no real reason. Stuck on Reefer Madness.

 

My point: We need to keep our message and faces out there. We need to continue to make the point that it is our right to choose between pills and MMJ.

 

Our bodies, our right to choose. We have to live with our broken bodies, we should know what works better. How dare they even try to make that choice for me !!

 

I am so glad I can legally Medicate. We all need to remain active in at least keeping Prop 1 left alone. It passed, get over it. Don't tread on me.

 

Peace.

Keep in mind what noted reporter Debbie Schlussel stated prior to the election and in regard to Schuette's taking contributions from Anti-Semitic Organizations linked directly to Hezbollah:

 

"As I said, Schuette didn't respond to my questions about all of this, but I and my clients have a few things planned in court to which he will be forced to respond, once he is Attorney General of Michigan. Stay tuned."

Having a "schutte wwatch thread" is a very good idea. We also have to know exactly where we stand, what dems we still have, things like that. I'm scared too. I'm so frazzled, this is exactly what I didn't need, but all my life that's mostly what I get, everything I don't need, and very little of what would help me. I'm crumbling from the inside out. Not everyone can keep fighting. I hope someone somewhere has been planning in case the worst happens, and has something solid we can work together on, that isn't available to our opponents to see. Nothing I can do will ease the pain of how I feel now, not MM or anything else, it's way too deep, been hurting for far too long. Maybe that forgery thingy will be effective. All I know is I did my best, and so did all of you. We fought honestly and peacefully, stayed within the law, asserting our rights, not asking for anything unreasonable. A good lawyer can help us find out exactly what our opeions are now. Peace.

 

Sincerely, Sb

It's the cyclical nature of politics. Big wins for the Republicans. Minor setbacks in the cannabis movement. We will continue to move forward with great optimism; for our cause is righteous

I kind of figured there would be a republican landslide all across the country.

 

Reason?

 

Remember November 2008? Well, the entire country blamed Bush and the republicans for their problems (rightly or wrongly) and electing Obama and the rest of the democrats was an indictment of their anger towards Bush.

 

Well, this time around the sheep blamed Obama and the democrats for not being able to turn the country around in less than two years. There are a lot of incredibly stupid people who voted yesterday. They walk among us...

 

Scary and sad all at the same time,

I'm just beyond mystified on this one, and now it seems prop 19 in Ca is going down in flames. I guess Mi and Ca had a bad case of couch lock... :(

 

 

Looks to me Prop. 19 lost because the growers like the present day situation, it lost in Trinity Humboldt and Mendocino counties! Message here is no need for big pharma to step in.

Obama warned us, in no uncertain terms, we're not gonna fix this in 2 years, maybe not even 4. The system was broken for a very long time. Can't fix 8 years of bullshyt in 2 years. He did do some good things. The repubs planned this, I saw a book in a store, the cover said it all. WHY can't WE be as organized as them? WHY WHY WHY???

 

Remember how long it took for the mess to get so bad, people want instant fixes, it's like that everywhere. It's the same way in other areas of life, often whatever's wrong, health, for example, and people run for the quickest fix, can't blame 'em if they're hurting, but prob'ly whatever's wrong was festering for a long time. Nature is slow.

 

I hate to say I knew this would happen, so I'm not surprised, but I also know, as I sit here crying anyway, IT CAN'T BE ALL BAD, IT CAN'T BE. No one can have everything they want all the time, it doesn't work that way. Whatever the silver lining, we HAVE to find it, we have to work with what we have and MAKE IT WORK FOR US.

 

The radio show from Michael Komorn tonight will be extremely important to listen to.

 

I'm so tired, I'm so tired, I'M SOOOOOOO TIRED, hurt, angry, sad. No medicine can fix this.

 

Sincerely, Sb

Don't let it get you too far down. Imagine the backlash in '12 once these clowns have done their worst, best, whatever you want to call it. Until we get a moderate party or two that can field a candidate and win we'll see an increase in elections that swing totally from one party to the other. My .02

Mize, not only that, BUT Obama never came up with the 'green jobs', ending the war in the Middle East along with a lot of other things that he lead the American people to believe he would do including changes in the 'cannabis laws'.

 

When Obama didn't follow through he p*ssed off the Dems and 'Independents' that had supported him and when you add to that the Republicans that already were against him... you see now where he is because of his lack of getting even a FEW things done.

 

IMHO... Obama... because he DIDN'T follow through on his 'Changes' will NOT have the support to get re-elected in 2012.

 

A politician of ANY party can only lie and fail to follow through so many times before people walk away.

 

People are 'walking away' from Obama... and sadly IMHO he doesn't have a clue on what he's doing wrong.

 

And the 'Health Care' issue... you CAN NOT pass a law that FORCES people to BUY health insurance... you either do 'single payer' OR you leave it to H*LL alone... another reason BOTH sides walked away from him.

 

I won't waste my vote NEXT election... count on it.

The reason the voting went the way it did was because a lot of 50+ year old white people, who make less than $40,000 a year, voted republican. Can't argue with facts and statistics. They were fooled by the Tea Party aka Republican Fat Cats.

There are a lot of p*ssed off people out there of ALL ages that wanted 'CHANGE' and they DIDN'T get it... and YES the 'money' guys took advantage of the opportunity.

 

NO surprises there... none at all.

Corp = $$$

$$$ = media

media + citizen united = win/buy election (old math)

If there were more citizens and less consumers we would be good. Country 1st

The turnout in MI is embarassing.....no?

We crossed the line from citizen to consumer along time ago with the help of wall st.

Remember the Pet Rock

 

lets not fall into the trap of arguing twix ourselves. same team diferent positions.

Cool Heads prevail

I am going to find those letters Shuette wrote to my newspaper along with the Sheriff. He really scares me because he calls us "drug users". It was horribly offensive to read. I don't trust him for one second. Thanks to all my friends who didn't vote, we now have a republican controlled house, senate, governor, and to top it off, hardcore righty supreme court

 

http://www.ourmidland.com/opinion/editorials/article_9b952d7a-7f33-5b6a-95ca-450ab8c21a7e.html

 

He uses marijuana as reason 75% of children in foster care, 24.5% of prison inmates are there because of violent crime on DRUGS.

And 60% of domestic violence was because of drugs.

 

This idiot is saying marijuana causes violence & makes us criminals, and terrible parents, so much so that our kids should be put in foster care!

 

 

SB, we can't be as organized as them because Dems are generally more educated and don't blindly follow what our leaders tell us. The rich leaders & corporations = (GOP) found a way to use people to vote against thier own interest by employing scare tactics, using religion, using prejudice (anti immigration), calling intelligent people "elites". Karl Rove is a master at using all & more to make them all get richer. Laughing at how simple minded people really are.

 

How many rich guys do you see at Tea Party rallies? You hear demonstrators going on about taxes, when they don't even know they got a tax CUT every single week in their paycheck. Hate socialism, yet are on medicare. Hate the government, but complain because there aren't police to protect them or have to drive on crappy roads. If the government wasn't there to protect us, we would still be driving runaway Toyotas, working in deadly mines, & being poisoned by salmonella. Do you really think Corporations will self police? Rand Paul thinks so. If you don't think the mine is safe, don't work there is his mantra.

 

NRA... billions spent with the mantra...they will take your guns away! caused a shortage of guns & ammo when Obama was elected. Not one thing was ever done regarding guns, yet people are told they are. Must be gospel, NRA told me so.

 

More than 1/2 of all union members vote Republican!!..even though Republicans have practically wiped out unions. Would you vote for someone who wanted to break up your union, so they can pay you 1/2 of what you make now? Dow Chemical got millions of stimulus money to create jobs making batteries, yet uses a temp service to pay them 9.00 an hour, no benefits. Our middle class that people loved in the 50's was created by good paying union jobs. That is why our grandparents could afford lots of kids, and mom stayed home to raise them. Impossible today.

 

Or they pick social issues, where churches everywhere are telling their entire congregation to vote Republican because of abortion, same sex marriage..Bush didn't stop abortion, so why should that be the only reason to vote for the GOP? How about what Jesus actually taught, that money was the root of all evil, not greed. If we put Jesus on the same standard as they do Obama, they would have signs labelling Jesus a socialist! Do you think Jesus would kick a child off health insurance because of a pre existing condition..it happens every day here.

 

I thought is was hilarious that they had 4 leaders of different tea party groups on Lawrence ODonnel the other day, and he asked them to raise their hands if they thought that medicare was socialist..no one thought so, then he asked if social security was socialist. No one thought so, but they said Obamacare was! Medicare & social security is entirely funded by the government, so that IS Socialism. The healthcare bill passed is run by INSURANCE companies. Insurance company stock went up like crazy after this bill was done. They couldn't even answer any of his questions, they just kept repeating the same

stock words, stop the out of control spending, blah blah blah. They looked like fools.

Any economist will tell you that in the time of such low interest rates, it is the only way to get an economy running. If you don't spend money on roads, infrastructure, innovation, we will only go down. When the economy improves, the money comes back. Just look at past depressions, it is something that has to be done. You can't just let it go down, if we did what they wanted, gm chrysler would have failed, losing millions more jobs, and the unemployment rate would be more like 18%

 

Another tactic they use is outright LIES and repeat the same thing over & over again. If they are called on it, they just say it is the liberal media, so their faithful followers will believe it. This is exactly what the Nazis did. Mein Kampf has the strategy right in it, that most humans are idiots. My phd scientist father was convinced that Obamacare was going to kill grandma, just because he heard it so many times on fox news.

 

What is the worst thing is that they have their own "news" 24/7 and it is carried by more stations than any other cable news network.

 

That doesn't make sense to Democrats, that is why it is hard for us to understand. We couldn't do that to our members, because we are smarter than that. We don't blindly follow someone just because they have a D, next to their name. If one of our own stomps on a 90 lb woman, we don't justify it with hours of tv coverage blaming the victim.

What most dems are mad about is that Obama chose Mitt Romneys health care, who is a Republican instead of single payer insurance. Most MA citizens say this works and want to keep it. I don't know where the media was or the dems were or Obamas staff was because they hardly said anything to fight back on this issue, and say to people that these were Bob Doles idea, and Mitt Romney used in in Massachusetts. Hardly a socialist idea. That is what is frustrating, is because Obama is centrist, yet labeled a liberal, and liberals think he is too conservative.

Greenbuddha, why not force people to buy health insurance? You are forced to buy automobile insurance in case you get in a car crash. You should be covered by health insurance just the same way in case you are in an accident, why should someone else have to pay the tab, just because you thought you were healthy? I am an excellent driver, so therefore I should not have to pay auto insurance then? 35% of people who are uninsured make over $50,000 a year. Why should our insurance go up, just because they were cheap and wanted to drive a new car rather than spend $1000 a month on insurance and now they are in the hospital on life support?

In the state of Michigan, we are indeed forced to buy auto insurance, but be reminded this is a STATE law, not a federal law!! There are states that do not have automobile insurance requirements. I do believe there is a HUGE difference, its not even comparable. In an automobile accident, there may be many people involved, not just yourself, thus the need. Whether I have heathcare or not effects ME alone. I do not get state insurance, nor when available, do I opt into employers insurances that I pay huge premiums for. There is not a dang person that pays my medical bills but MYSELF. I think what it boils down to is one less thing we have a CHOICE on. Hmmmmm...this month do we eat or pay our health insurance premiums??

hey all

 

well ill go out on the limb and say this and take the flame it is going to cause...

 

one possible worse case that can happen...

 

now he has the power to make or break anything he wants... as the head law officer now he decides he does not like our law or any law for that matter doesnt have to be our law... he voices his intent and can learn who opposes him... now he knows who is opposing his wants... he now can go out and find issue from who oppose him we all have skeletons then uses threats to get his way over those who oppose him... this is the head leo remember... once he has that now he can get the 3/4 vote to over ride... he now has the law revoked... i know simplistic but this is a thought... we all know politics are about media and how much dirt to cause shame to win votes... or just as simple it is to buy now days what you want or need... with the over turned law he now can use the list to hunt us down...

 

politics can cause issues everywhere with anyone there are no rules... laws are ways to control but we the people have lost the means to have control we have given that to people like bill and now we all have to live with it until the next election round... just dont think the people we voted for are out to help anyone out here its about the money there going to get... when we all are willing to take the money out of public service is when things will change... not until then... it use to be when serving the country it was not about you it was about the people... now its about the money there taking... limit there terms... limit there health care to what we have not what they have which is far better than ours... no more can a public offices be retired from and have a paid income from it... this is a cost to the public for little return... its not like working for a company and paying into a ira... sorry but your not going to make more money from we the people any more... time for you to serve then go back to a job like the rest of us... we no longer want to support you... when you waste more and expect more and give nothing...

 

this can and may happen but we the people are the ones who allow this to keep going on... only we can put a stop to this...

 

just a pipe dream and thoughts or rants how every you want it put but i feel it is needed to be said... some will think im dumb or stupid but you know this is what i thought it was about but then i maybe just in dream land... like bill says im just a pot head stoner we dont need them kind in his world... people like him know one thing and it is not about people having a choice he will make them for us... because he knows whats better for us and we the people will allow this to happen...

 

 

call me dumb and dumber abbe
