Stonebeam 4: Election Day 2020

Story Shot 4, by Brian R. Wright  PDF Version, 03 November 2020

Yessir, and I’m geeked. Well, not really.

See, I live in Michigan of the United States, and the governor of our state—her name is Gretchen Whitmer—just yesterday issued another “Emergency Order (EO).” This one’s a doozy… to have stores take part in tracking customers with a harsh penalty for noncompliance, like six months jail time! Imagine pulling up to the McDonalds’ drivethru:

“I’ll have a Big Mac and a coke.”
“What’s your name and contact information?”
“Clarabelle, c/o Buffalo Bob Studios.”
“Sorry, we don’t have you on our list, please fill out a form online.”
“Okay, what about my order?”
“We need you in our approved-client database first.”
“All right, don’t have my smartphone, need to go home to my computer.”
“Fine, sooner the better.”
“Why’s that?”
“This franchise is going out of business in two hours.”

My goodness. It’s like the outdoor tavern where you walk and sit in an inner tube to maintain social distancing. Or an NFL game with cardboard cutout fans and fake crowd noise. Or sharing a California family Thanksgiving sitting around in hazmat suits. Or… Variations on a Theme of ‘covid’ Bizarro World. Continue reading

Guest Column: Bill Gelineau for Governor

Why You Should Vote for Bill Gelineau, Libertarian for Michigan Governor, 2018…

… and how you can help him WIN!

Contemplate the mainstream alternatives:

  • Bill Schuette—CAREER POLITICIAN, as attorney general, resisted the voter-approved medical marijuana law, using stormtrooper tactics to prosecute and harass honest providers. He seeks massive federalization and militarization of Michigan’s police and despises personal freedom. He proudly stands with jackboot poised to crush the defenseless and different. A woobie Big Brother.
  • Gretchen Whitmer—CAREER POLITICIAN, helped Republican governor, Rick Snyder, implement the disastrous and tyrannical Obamacare intrusion on our health and lives. Qua Democratic leader, she crafts her appeal to the indigent and infirm, not with solutions, rather pushing government as a limitless ATM machine… funded by you and me. A woobie Big Sister.

Ultimately, Schuette and Whitmer are of the same bipartisan threadbare cloth that can no longer conceal their government’s utter capitulation to the special-interest Leviathans du jour—Big Telecom, Big Pharma, Big Coming Down the Pike. The cartels say jump, our Tweedledeedum officials say how high, and every day John and Jane Doe lose a little more precious life and liberty.

Enter one Bill Gelineau—not to mention his accomplished running mate Angelique Thomas—as the literature says: Father, Husband, BUSINESS OWNER, Volunteer, Activist. Before I say anything else, every voter reading this pitch MUST take 11 minutes to view Bill’s interview on Tim Skubick’s Off the Record show here during the primary. Okay, done? Good.
