Here is some news on the appeal to reinstate the Jan. 15 Primary.

  • LANSING -- The Michigan Court of Appeals announced today it will hear oral arguments in an appeal seeking to reinstate the state's Jan. 15 presidential primary.

An opinion from

  • Parties shouldn't hamstring primary
  • The recent debate about Iowa and New Hampshire having an unwritten right to lead off presidential primaries is nonsensical. Simply put, we are a nation of laws. The Michigan Legislature passed this bill, and the governor signed it. If national parties have an issue with the chosen date, let them have their constituents in Michigan write their legislative representatives to change it...
  • Our primaries will count in a national convention, just as soon as one of the parties realizes it will win Michigan by honoring our laws.

Here is my message to readers. Thursday at 1:25, let's all pray for the appeal to go through. If the Jan 15 date is reinstated it is imperative that you get your little booties out there and brave the cold, on that day. I don't care if you are a Democrat or Republican, there are too many people making sure that we have a Jan 15 primary for anyone to just sit this through. People of Michigan, let's show the nation what we are made of. We have the chance to make history. Let's not blow it. I will be checking back with ya as soon as the result is in.
