October in Eastmanville. Hope you have had the chance to get out and enjoy the spectacular show our state is putting on this fall season. Colors are peaking "around the knuckles" of the Mitten this week - check out some of the fall driving tours at michigan.org for tips on where to travel.
It's another beautiful day, enjoy it while it lasts! Some odds and ends to chew over:
Snyder's repeated call to cut business taxes was the subject of the first ad of his general election campaign, launched Monday, that asserts that Michigan's job loss that began in 2000 is the result of a bipartisan business tax overhaul that took effect in 2008.
The Michigan Business Tax has turned into everyone's favorite villain this year, but the facts are: a) it didn't exist until 2008 and b) it only accounts for 11.7% of taxes paid by Michigan businesses. It's one of the biggest canards in this campaign season, if not THE biggest canard of this campaign season, when it comes to state political races. Where do you possibly begin when the whole premise of the argument is false?
Enjoy your day - silly season will be here when you get back. Get that sunshine in!
