Welcome To 1984 The Democrat Party, the government education complex, private corporations and foundations, the news media and the allpervasive sports and entertainment industry have incrementally repressed the foundational right of We the People to publicly debate open borders, forced immigration, sanctuary cities and the calamitous destruction of innate gender norms...

Grow Up, Kachadurian Apparently Tom Kachadurian has great words; too bad they make little sense. His Sept. 19 editorial highlights his prevalent beliefs that only Hillary and the Dems are engaged in namecalling and polarizing actions. Huh? What rock does he live under up on Old Mission...

Facts MatterThomas Kachadurian’s “In the Basket” opinion deliberately chooses to twist what Clinton said. He chooses to argue that her basket lumped all into the clearly despicable categories of the racist, sexist, homophobic , etc. segments of the alt right...

Turn Off Fox, Kachadurian I read Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion letter in last week’s issue. It seemed this opinion was the product of someone who offered nothing but what anyone could hear 24/7/365 on Fox News; a one-sided slime job that has been done better by Fox than this writer every day of the year...

Let’s Fix This Political Process Enough! We have been embroiled in the current election cycle for…well, over a year, or is it almost two? What is the benefit of this insanity? Exorbitant amounts of money are spent, candidates are under the microscope day and night, the media – now in action 24/7 – focuses on anything and everything anyone does, and then analyzes until the next event, and on it goes...

Can’t Cut Taxes 

We are in a different place today. The slogan, “Making America Great Again” begs the questions, “great for whom?” and “when was it great?” I have claimed my generation has lived in a bubble since WWII, which has offered a prosperity for a majority of the people. The bubble has burst over the last few decades. The jobs which provided a good living for people without a college degree are vanishing. Unions, which looked out for the welfare of employees, have been shrinking. Businesses have sought to produce goods where labor is not expensive...

Wrong About Clinton In response to Thomas Kachadurian’s column, I have to take issue with many of his points. First, his remarks about Ms. Clinton’s statement regarding Trump supporters was misleading. She was referring to a large segment of his supporters, not all. And the sad fact is that her statement was not a “smug notion.” Rather, it was the sad truth, as witnessed by the large turnout of new voters in the primaries and the ugly incidents at so many of his rallies...

Preserving the Pigeon/Energy Guru Nicole Foss

- September 13th, 2010
Preserving the Pigeon
The Pigeon River has enjoyed the protection of the Little Traverse
Conservancy since 1983 when Agnes A. Andreae donated 27 acres and a
cabin perched along the river.
Since then, the Conservancy has partnered with landowners and
donors to preserve more than 12 miles of frontage along the Pigeon
River, Little Pigeon River and their tributaries from development.
Recently, two new parcels were purchased by the Conservancy with
funding from the J.A. Woollam Foundation. Both parcels became part of
the Vivian VanCampen Nature Preserve, adding more than 22 acres and
2,600 feet of undeveloped river shoreline.
“These additions were especially important because they provided
protection on both sides of the river at this preserve,” said Ty
Ratliff, Conservancy land protection specialist.
The Vivian VanCampen Preserve now totals more than 58 acres and
3,700 feet of Pigeon River frontage, providing habitat for mink,
otter, raccoon and waterfowl species.





Energy guru Nicole Foss
Biologist and environmental consultant Nicole Foss (aka Stoneleigh)
has a lot of ground to cover at her appearance in Northern Michigan
this week.
She plans to “explain in plain language the economic and social
challenges of the financial crisis, including the future of taxes,
unemployment, housing prices, business sales, and investments.”
Her news release states that “Foss uses common sense to explore
complex energy issues from oil supply to renewables, the unsustainable
structure of the banking system, the irrationality of market behavior,
credit bubbles, inflation and deflation, interest rates, agriculture
subsidies and farm markets, globalization, and the potential for
geopolitical conflict.”
The upshot will be advice on how to get through a tough economy and
what may lie ahead.
The former editor of “The Oil Drum” in Canada, she currently edits
http://theautomaticearth.blogspot.com.
Nicole Foss will speak on Saturday, Sept. 18 at 1 p.m in Bear Lake,
and on Sunday, Sept. 19, from 1-4 p.m. at the Traverse Area District
Library, 610 Woodmere Ave., TC.

Camp’s pitch for
the rich
President Obama’s call to end the Bush tax cuts for the rich in the
coming months has earned the wrath of Congressman Dave Camp (R-MI),
who represents the Grand Traverse area.
President Obama proposes ending tax cuts for Americans and small
businesses making more than $250,000 per year -- about 2% of the
nation’s population. The funds would be used in an attempt to get the
economy back on track and cut the nation‘s 9.6% unemployment rate.
Under the Democrats’ plan, tax cuts would be extended for American
citizens and businesses making less than $250,000 per year.
But Camp and the Republican Party are framing the cuts as a
“job-killing $3.8 trillion tax hike.” The party is calling for a
two-year freeze on all current tax rates.
In an interview on Good Morning America last week, President Obama
said the Republican plan of extending tax cuts for “millionaires and
billionaires” is “probably the least efficient way of giving the
economy a boost.”
