Updated @ 1/16/13-with the Michigan Democrats response from Governor Rick Snyder's State of the State Address by State Senate Minority Leader, Gretchen Whitmer, below.

WOW! That is one word which can be used to describe the 45 minute long speech given by Governor Rick Snyder describing the State of Michigan's Union January 16th at 7:00 PM.

Sadly, WOW does not denotes how well Governor Snyder's presence, overall believably or delivery with the dictation of said Speech. Instead WOW is the only word that can actually describe how incredibly bad it was.

There were some moments. Moments that if you're a voter in Michigan should make one afraid, very afraid of the corporate friendly road Governor Rick Snyder will take us next.

Gov. Snyder firmly believe Michigan residents are consumers, who purchase a product called State Government we guess. Our States' Founding Document, the Michigan Constitution, does not speak of consumers but, never mind that little detail right Gov. Rick Snyder?

"We, the people of the State of Michigan, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of freedom, and earnestly desiring to secure these blessings undiminished to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution."
See it states, "We the People of the State of Michigan", not "We the Consumers of...."

Yet it get better or worse from there as the Governor seemed to not have "practiced" his speech as he's skipped and tripped over words.
"In the EAA there is not such things as failing a grade, only how much time it takes you to master an opportunity," Gov. Rick Snyder.
Mind you he's talking about the Educational Achievement Authority (EAA), which is the effort to PRIVATIZE Michigan's Public EDUCATION. Guess if you never pass the class, it does not matter at all because the private company has their money, regardless. Not sure if the Governor meant this in the context was delivered but, read what he said next.
"Kunta, Kwame...go for it! You have my support." Rick Snyder.
Governor Snyder in this quote was talking about a child who was supposed to be a "model" of why the EAA is the "best ever" ---dipping sarcasm--- yet, cannot remember this child name. This does nothing to give State Residents --not consumers-- a "ringing endorsement of the EAA.

Listen to our January 15, 2013, interview with former George W. Bush Assistant Secretary of Education on Independent Underground Radio LIVE to learn the real details about the privatization of public education, and its' many failures.

Next, Governor Snyder wants to bring back a color-coded 9/11 type "warning" system to alert State residents --again not consumers-- we assume to investigate actions of suspected terrorists in our State? 
"I'm going to call for the next generation 9/11 system, for we can improve public safety." Rick Snyder.
So, Michigan plans to waste money on the deleted Colored Coded Warning System  eliminated eight years later after TSA Head Tom Ridge enacted it. Of course Governor Snyder cited to his own TSA type enforcement guard  --the State Police-- which he wants to hire in masses to enforce this "system".

Wonder would the Governor consider hiring a few more Correctional Officers to keep convicted criminals from hurting our other State Law Enforcement employees?

If he listens to Independent Underground Radio LIVE January 8, 2013, interview with Michigan Correction Organization President Tom Tykulti, it would seem that the Governor should beef up Correctional Officers staff, instead of ignoring these Men and Woman safety concerns.

Finally, if you're a local Elected Clerk in your Township, City, Village or County and do not fit into Governor Snyder "plans" to "transform Michigan" watch out! Your seat, might just be in jeopardy, along with all the other elected officials in your community.
"We should be looking at local election administration," Rick Snyder. folks. Reading the tea-leaves Governor Rick Snyder along with Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, wants to Gerrymander all of Michigan's  local elections to fix the results they both desire. 

Remember, the People are consumers not citizens. If the business pulls a product ---similar to deciding which citizens can vote for in the local election---  well, that's just a business decision folks according to our Governor.

Warning Michiganders! Before we lose all control as residents of directions desired our State should follow into the future, we must dramatically change our Elected "leadership" makeup in the 2014 elections.

And without further ado, we like to present you with the Michigan Democrats strong response to Governor Rick Snyder (R) State of the State address, from State Senate Minority Leader, Gretchen Whitmer. Also, Senator Whitmer calls Michiganders RESIDENTS or THE PEOPLE, and not consumers throughout this video!
