It’s true. The Corrector likes to bash our local politicians that seem to be always doing something stupid. Whether they are wasting money like the courthouse debacle, tossing cash into the wind like the school board, or just passing around HOHO’s like the treasurer’s office we seem to find plenty of things to complain about.

Today is the exception, we are going to yell out a hearty “THANK GOD, at least our dumbbells aren’t as ignorant as the Governor of Michigan, Jennifer M. Granholm"  It seems the Tofu industry or some such nonsense has finally gotten to one of our countries professional politicians who just declared March 20th No Meat Day

The following directly from the office of the governor in Michigan,1607,7-168-25488-232493--,00.html

Whereas, A wholesome diet of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains promotes good health and reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases, which take the lives of approximately 1.3 million Americans each year; and,

Whereas, The number of those who choose to live the lifestyle of a vegan or vegetarian has increased and so has the availability and selection of meat and dairy alternatives in mainstream grocery stores, restaurants, and catering operations; and,

Whereas, Reducing the consumption of meat or not eating meat at all can significantly decrease the exposure to infectious pathogens such as salmonella, E. coli, and campylobacter, which take the lives of several thousand Americans and sicken millions more each year; and,

Whereas, The benefits of a plant-based diet can consist of increased energy levels, lower food budget costs, and simplified food preparation and cleanup; and,

Whereas, It is encouraged that the residents of this state get into the habit of healthy living by consuming a diet that is rich with vegetables, fruit, and whole grains, and by staying active;

Now, Therefore, be it Resolved, That I, Jennifer M. Granholm, governor of the state of Michigan, do hereby proclaim March 20, 2010, Michigan Meatout Day in Michigan. In observance of this day, I encourage the residents of this state to choose not to eat meat. Eating a healthy diet can be fun. Explore the different recipes that can be created by using fresh ingredients and by having a sense of adventure.

We wonder if brilliant thinking like this is why Michigan is one of the leaders in unemployment in the entire nation?


  1. As hilarious as this is, i can see what her goal is. However I for one will not be observing haha!

  2. Well if her goal is to help promote a more healthy american way of life and diet, then ya I can see her point. But this to me is a very strange way of going about it. Instead of apointing a day why not work on healthier school lunch menus, promotion of better eating habits for everyone??

  3. Didn't Oprah say something about the beef producers?

    I think so, which in a roundabout way brought the babbling idiot himself, Dr. Phil on our televisions everyday.

    I am not a teabagger, but did throw a steak on the BBQ to celebrate this excuse of a governor's not so bright idea.

  4. Being a Michigan native, I can tell you why she's doing it. She can't bring any jobs back into the state because of her piss poor management, so about 20% of the folks are out of work and they can't afford meat! Like Baucus, you gotta wonder how she keeps getting re-elected.
