Opposes abortion under any circumstances, other than to save life of Mother, even in cases of rape or incest.



ugh, this makes me sick - If you get raped you have to birth and raise a child to reminds you of that horrible incident for the rest of your life.... And for incest-- From what i know - it would be better off for the sake of the childs life(or lack there of) to abort.

Because, of course, 2 wrongs make a right

killing is never right, I have several friends that would love to adopt a baby but sadly the wait is very long.

Although the efforts to send to RB and Political are likely the same, so to the RB you go to teach a lesson.

"Says Governor Granholm is not managing Michigan well, even though Michigan is rated the third best managed state in the country, the best and most citizen friendly internet site in the country, and is operating with the lowest number of State employees since 1974."

So she is taking credit for something that's been that way since 1974 and a good internet site. Hell, Boston Dan should be governor then.

EDUCATION:

High school (1973)
Activity: Grand Rapids Forest Hills 2nd string Quarterback of football team
Quit in senior year- team was purportedly progressing faster than him

He's not a jock- big fucking deal

COLLEGE:

Calvin College (1973)
Quit after one semester

He was 18-19 years old...Why go to college when you have millions??

Northwood Institute, Midland, MI (1981)
Received business degree
Attended night classes

Parents got on his ass to get some education

Harvard Business School.
Quit without completing program

Why put up with the bullshit when you have millions?

Wharton Executive Study Program
Quit without completing program

Why put up with the bullshit when you have millions?

EMPLOYMENT:

1974-1989 Amway Corp., Ada, MI
Company involved with the sale and distribution of household products.
Founded and managed by his father Richard DeVos, Sr. and his partner Jay Van Andel in 1959
Some refer to company as giant pyramid scheme where average distributor makes $124. per month
Held various positions with company rising to VP of International Operations
Quit to start own company

What's wrong with that?

1989-1992 Founder and CEO of Windquest Group. Closet organizer and storage container business.
Quit to return to Amway

It's still in business.


1991-1993 President of Orlando Magic, professional basketball team.
Father purchased team in 1991
Quit to return to Amway

Back to where the money is. Good idea.

1993-2002 Amway CEO
Managed business to it's greatest losses in history then downsized number of Michigan employees from 5,300 to 3,900

How many companies made huge profits after 9-11??

Invested $200 Million in China

One of the largest growing markets in the world, and the money is coming back to Michigan. Pretty smart guy.

Now Company is 80% Asian company
Quit to return to Windquest and pursue other interests

Got more cash rolling in where it was easy, now he's back to get his own company up to speed.

PUBLIC SERVICE:

1990 elected to State Board of Education.
Quit after two years, missing of all meetings (the most of any Board member)
1996 appointed by Governor Engler to Board of Control, Grand Valley State University.
Quit before term expired, last meeting attended July 2000
Missed 16 of 27 mtgs

I miss as many meetings as possible. Meetings are generally a waste of time.

2000 spearheaded Michigan ballot proposal to use public school funds for vouchers for private/charter schools. Personally spent millions to finance campaign
Measure was soundly defeated by 69% of votes cast

I think vouchers are a good idea. We should privatize all schools. Than teachers will have accountability.

CHARITABLE GIVING:

His wife and he and his foundation have generously given tens of millions of dollars to virtually every Republican, conservative and far-right group/cause
"My family was the largest contributors to President Bush in 2000 and 2004"
Wife Betsy has said they expect a return for their giving

Better than giving money to bleeding heart liberals to waste on the burdens of society.

FAMILY:

Married Wife Betsy DeVos in 1979
Formerly Betsy Prince, heir to the Prince auto parts fortune
Betsy was Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman and finance chairwoman of National Republican Party Senatorial Committee

She sounds hot.

They have four adult children

The daughter in his TV ad is hot.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS:

Licensed pilot (Amway owns 14 aircraft, 10 of which are jets)
Yachting (owns 41st largest yacht in USA)
Accumulating great wealth (personal fortune estimated at $500 Million dollars, but won't release tax returns)
Spending fortune on political interests (has spent more than $30 million of his own money in campaign for Governor.

I wish I had his money.

POLICY POSITIONS:

Opposes abortion under any circumstances, other than to save life of Mother, even in cases of rape or incest.

I disagree here.

Does not support law to ban smoking in Restaurants and bars. Says Michigan citizens should have the right to CHOOSE.

Who really gives a fukc ? If you don't like smoke, don't go there.

Opposes embryonic stem cell research even if existing and unused stem cells are discarded or thrown in trash, despite the huge promise and potential of stem cell research to save lives and benefit the public health.

I don't care either way.

Supports Abolishing Michigan SBT by end of 2007. This will eliminate nearly two billion dollars of revenue to the state. Favors one-half of the revenue being replaced by a tax on business, but won't discuss other taxes considered to replace lost revenue or what cuts in services he would recommend.
Supports eliminating business personal property taxes of 1.8 billion dollars but doesn't have plan to replace revenue lost by municipalities some of which depend upon this tax for 50-60% of their budgets. This loss would cause elimination of essential services (police, fire and schools).
Supports Elimination of the estate tax. Is one of 80 families that has lobbied Congress (with millions of dollars) to eliminate Federal and State Estate taxes which would be a huge tax windfall to the wealthiest of the wealthy.
Says best way to deal with medical insurance crisis in Michigan is for all Michigan Citizens to get a good job, even though fewer and fewer employers are providing affordable health insurance and the number of uninsured is increasing.

All sounds good to me.

Says Governor Granholm is not managing Michigan well, even though Michigan is rated the third best managed state in the country,

98% of all statistics are useless

the best and most citizen friendly internet site in the country,

I'm sure many companies are flocking to Michigan because of their awesome website

and is operating with the lowest number of State employees since 1974.

She deserves a golf clap for that one.

I don't recall where but there was a study that Americans would be better served to take a 15 minute break as apposed to wasting time in meetings.
