And when Ted Nugent talks, people listen! And OBEY! I have already also signed the petition, and have member-fellow orgs. that have contributed in my name like, MCBA, MUCC, MS, MSFA, and I wish us luck. Tell Gov. Granny to stay out of this, for a change too.
I like the fact that Pete Hoekstra is also trying to battle this in the legislature (as opposed to the courts which Cox has done with little success). This could be an important issue in the primary for the guv'norship.
Thanks for that update X, I hadn't read that yet. Based on that info. I would say Hoekstra seems to have the better strategy. Attorneys always want the courts to solve the worlds problems. This particular issue IS better suited to the USCOE. And I would think that the MIDNR would also be a staunch and powerful tool to this end. However, my experiences with the USCOE has been that when political issues are involved, they tend to be lax, and prefer the DNR to supercede their own authority. Couldn't hurt to have both get in on this right away. Looks like the locks are a sticky proposition at best anyhow. And this needs action at once, not some later date when the Supreme Courts get around to it either. JMO
I only learned about Hoekstra's involvement because I was surprised, when Mary brought this up, that he had let Cox get leeway into this without doing anything himself. It will be a coup for whoever accomplishes this, if either does.
