As my war-survivin' late grandma (who knew a thing or two about surviving war-induced famine) would say: to throw away food, is the gravest of crimes!

MI Police State Break Down walls to gain access to 'unsecured (legal) Marijuana plants' in raid

Police state strikes again! This story has so many violations of their own rules it is sickening.

"When they arrived, I asked them to see a warrant, which they did not provide as they didn’t have one. They were asked several times to leave the premises and come back with a warrant but they continued refusal to do so."

Michigan Primary

My Michigan absentee ballot for the primary has arrived. Having been in the UK for a quarter century now (yes, I am indeed in Nigel Farage territory), I have no idea if anyone on the ballot is libertarian/constitutional-leaning or not. There are no third party candidates listed.

Any advice, O Mighty DPers?

Cheers in advance.

Justin Amash's support for free enterprise earns enmity of Big Business

BY TIMOTHY P. CARNEY | JULY 19, 2014 | 12:28 PM

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has jumped into a Republican congressional primary in Michigan, trying to defeat incumbent Rep. Justin Amash. Amash's crime: being stubbornly consistent in opposing big government.

The Chamber's endorsement of Amash's opponent helps clarify some things that have long been true, but which have been muddled in the public eye and used against conservatives.

The first myth put to rest: Libertarianism and free enterprise are defenses of Big Business.

Grassroots moneybomb for Justin Amash on Friday July 18th (Today!)

Justin Amash has fought for us on important issues, challenging the status quo in Washington and defending the Constitution. He is lauded as one of the harshest congressional critics of the NSA’s domestic spying programs, and has sponsored legislation to eliminate policies that contribute to risky lending and distorted markets.

The attack ads have begun, making allegations that FactCheck.org immediately labeled “misleading.”

The establishment is piling on, with the Michigan GOP essentially turning its back on Justin’s campaign.

Rep. Justin Amash's (R-Mich.) primary opponent issued a brutal attack in his latest ad, using a former Marine to repeat comments that Amash is "Al Qaeda's best friend in Congress."

"We were out there fighting for the country and he's voting against anything that would help us," former Marine Ben Thomas says in the ad for businessman Brian Ellis (R) after attacking Amash for wanting to close Guantanamo Bay.

Someone give this guy a gold star: Congressman Amash marks 2,500 consecutive votes

5:20 PM WED JUNE 4, 2014

Michigan Congressman Justin Amash never gets sick. His car never breaks down and he doesn't take off work for doctor's appointments.

OK, that’s probably an exaggeration.

Amash has represented Grand Rapids in Congress since 2010. He's never missed a single vote on the House floor. He's now cast 2,500 votes in a row. This appears to put Amash and Congressman Steve Womack from Arkansas in a tie for the prize of longest active voting streak of any sitting representative.

He deserves a gold star for perfect attendance or something, no?
