A movement in search of a leader

7/6/2015

It's clear that our grossly gerrymandered legislature is painfully out of touch with the needs and desires of Michigan citizens. This shows up first in a partisan sense; both houses of the legislature have top-heavy Republican majorities even in years when a majority of the people vote Democratic.

4/14/2015
More
I have decided I owe it to my listeners to announce today that I am not running for President. I am indeed old enough and have no felony convictions, but I have decided not to run, for a number of reasons. One of which is that I don't have access to the billion dollars anyone nowadays needs.

But the real problem...
