Is there no level to which the Cock (sic) Brothers and the stinking Americans for Prosperity (read, the Tea Party) which the Cocks own, will not stoop to reward their cronies and butt fuck the rest of us?
It seems that there is a proposal to build a bridge from Canada to Detroit, to be called the International Trade Crossing Bridge. There is already a bridge in existence, but it is privately owned and is a toll bridge. Who owns it? Glad you asked. Read this, which I took from an article by Liz Goodwin, a writer for THE LOOKOUT...A News Blog. Excerpts indicated in italics and quotes.
"Republican donor Manuel (Matty) Moroun is lobbying against the proposed bridge because it would siphon traffic and tolls from his privately owned Ambassador bridge that traverses the same span between Detroit and Ontario. Moroun would like a second bridge--but one that he would own."
Well, fine and dandy, an entrapemanure who wants the exclusive on the market. WTF, it's the free-enterprise way...the Amurican way.
But what makes this particularly onerous (as if the above isn't onerous enough) is a typical right-wing scare tactic. In this case, the slimebags spread fake eviction notices throughout neighborhoods in Detroit. "The flyers said 'eviction notice' in big block letters and then warned residents that the state of Michigan could take their homes to make way for a new proposed bridge to Canada, the New International Trade Crossing bridge."
And then the second half of the lying is put into play:
"Moroun's company told the Free Press that it had nothing to do with the fake eviction notices, though Americans for Prosperity's Hagerstrom would not reveal if the group has received money from the bridge company to help fund its anti-public bridge campaign."
What does Peckerheads for Prosperity have to say about it?
"It was meant to startle people," Americans for Prosperity state director Scott Hagerstrom told The Detroit Free Press.
And are Peckerheads for Posterity even a teeny tiny little bit sorry for scaring the shit out of thousands of Detroit citizens. And are they going to apologize?
No follow-up to answer that question dudes and dudettes. A big fatheaded NO.
