The new Maine Governor, Paul Le Page
The new Maine Governor, Paul Le Page is making New Jersey 's Chris Christie
look like an enabler. He isn't afraid to say what he thinks. Judging by the
comments, every time he opens his mouth, his popularity goes up.
He brought down the house at his inauguration when he shook his fist toward
the media box and said, "You're on notice! I've inherited a financially
troubled State to run. Observe...cover what we do...but don't whine if I
don't waste time responding to your every whim just for your amusement."
During his campaign for Governor, he was talking to commercial fishermen
who are struggling because of federal fisheries rules. They complained that
0bama brought his family to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park for a long
Labor Day holiday and found time to meet with union leaders, but wouldn't
talk to the fishermen. LePage replied, "I'd tell him to go to hell and get
out of my State." The Lame Stream Media crucified LePage, but he jumped 6
points in the pre-election poll.
The Martin Luther King incident was a political sandbag, which brought him
National exposure. The 'lame stream' media crucified him, but word on the
street is very positive. The NAACP specifically asked LePage to spend MLK
Day visiting black inmates at the Maine State Prison. He told them that he
would meet with ALL inmates, regardless of race, if he were to visit the
prison. The NAACP balked and then put out a news release claiming falsely
that he refused to participate in any MLK events. He read it in the paper
for the1st time the next morning while being driven to an event and went
ballistic because none of the reporters had called him for comment before
running the NAACP release.
He arrived at that event & said in front of a TV camera, "If they want to
play the race card on me they can kiss my ass", and he reminded them that he
has an adopted black son from Jamaica and that he attended the local MLK
Breakfast every year that he was mayor of Waterville. (He started his
morning there on MLK Day.)
He then stated that there's a right way and a wrong way to meet with the
Governor, and he put all special interests on notice that press releases,
media leaks, and all demonstrations would prove to be the wrong way. He said
any other group, which acted like the NAACP could expect to be at the bottom
of the Governor's priority list!
He then did the following, and judging from local radio talk show callers,
his popularity increased even more: The State employees union complained
because he waited until 3 P.M. before closing State offices and facilities
and sending non-emergency personnel home during the last blizzard. The prior
Governor would often close offices for the day with just a forecast before
the first flakes. (Each time the State closes for snow, it costs the
taxpayers about $1 million in wages for no work in return.)
Le Page was CEO of the Marden's chain of discount family bargain retail
stores before election as governor. He noted that State employees getting
off work early could still find lots of retail stores open to shop. So, he
put the State employees on notice by announcing: "If Marden's is open, Maine
He told State employees: "We live in Maine in the winter, for heaven's sake,
and should know how to drive in it. Otherwise, apply for a State job in
Governor Le Page symbolizes what America needs: Refreshing politicians who
aren't self-serving and who exhibit common sense.
THE LAW IS THE LAW!
I really love this one.
This is one of the better e-mails I have received in a long time! I hope
this makes its way around the USA several times over!!!!! HERE IS WHAT
Governor La Page said,
"THE LAW IS THE LAW So "if" the US government determines that it is against
the law for the words "under God" to be on our money, then, so be it.
And "if" that same government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to
be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.
I say, "so be it," because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen.
I say, "so be it," because I would like to think that smarter people than I
are in positions to make good decisions.
I would like to think that those people have the American public's best
interests at heart.
BUT, he said, "YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I'D LIKE?
Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot post His
Commandments in Government buildings, I don't believe Government (Federal,
State and Local) and its employees should participate in Easter and
Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is
eliminating from many facets of American life.
I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving &
Easter. After all, it's just another day.
I'd like the" US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday,
Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays." After all, it's just another
I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry
about getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all it's just another
I'm thinking a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government
offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. It
shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of
the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."
In fact...I think our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside
for worshipping God) because, after all, our government says that it should
be just another day...."
What do you all think???? If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our
elected officials will stop giving in to the "minority opinions" and begin,
once again, to represent the "majority" of ALL of the American people.
SO BE IT....
Please Dear Lord, Give us the help needed to keep You in our country! 'Amen'
and 'Amen' Touché!
If this gets around the country a few times, perhaps we will see a better
