It came from beyond…

Attack of the Killer Heads

In a time of darkness, when Hope seemed to have gone out for a pack of smokes and ended up on a boat to China, when television seemed to have become nothing more than an ad delivery service, when the most flawed candidate in the history of our state seemed like a credible threat, well, in those days the people of Michigan finally got a chance to have their say.

Vote, people, and get your friends, relatives and total strangers to do the same.

Michigan’s future isn’t for sale.

UPDATES GALORE:

Ominous music to hum on Election Day!

Dickie Rich: The Poor Little Rich Candidate

October 26, 2006

The Poor Little Rich’s Boy

A search on “Dick Devos is Rich” leaves little doubt that Google still has no love the Disembodied Head. It also finds that Diamond Dick is the richest man to run for governor in state history. This little lady notes that Dick Devos has bucked tradition and refused to disclose his tax returns. Memo to Michigan from the gold-plated desk of Dick Devos: You don’t care how much I pay or don’t pay in taxes, you care only about your own taxes. If for some reason you do care, my finances are “an issue we will address openly and directly at the appropriate time”. Which is not now. So bugger off!

Millions!Still, voters are a curious lot (at least as compared to say … reporters) and many still want to know “Well how much money does Dick Devos have?”. The Granholm campaign tried to make this an issue (story) saying “DeVos’ arrogant refusal to open his tax return to public inspection, the way Gov. Granholm and every other recent candidate has done, makes it clear that he is hiding something.” The campaign responded that the allegation was “ludicrous”, which was apparently code for “nothing to hide … except Alterra“.
During the final debate, the Tricky Dick was accused of setting up a Bermuda tax haven to hide profits from Amway’s overseas operations. Sadly, the crack delegation of journalists dispatched to investigate the claims vanished in the Bermuda Triangle.

So how much money does Dick Devos have? The answer is: Dick Devos sure as hell isn’t going to tell you.

Saturday Cartoon Super Bonanza: Amway Guy’s Greatest Hits!

October 21, 2006

WealthyCheck out the nominees over at the Michigan League of Lunchmoney Donors and vote for your favorite Dick Devos movie of 2006. It’s like Cannes, only without the topless beaches and Michael Moore (Michael Moore and topless beach? I think I need to use the facilities now.)

Best Picture: See Dick Run The stick guy is funny and the little girl’s voice is so unbearable cute that she will be making calls about how disappoined she is in Granholm all next week. All that’s missing is a puppy!

Best Performance by a Puppy: Stop Devos I: Puppy Stomp Awww. Stomping puppies? That’s a low blow!! Besides, it’s the Governor’s responsibility to protect puppies from me!

Best Original Score: The Disembodied Head of Dick Devos Music to outsource by!

2nd Best Original Score: I’ve Been Amwayed Also wins Best Director, Best Perfomance by a Disembodied Head, Best Musical Description of the Amway Scam and Tappinest Toes!

Best Foreign Film: Dickenstein (Spain) I admit. I fell asleep but only because I had stayed up all night before watching the Chris Farley film marathon. Farley was a comic genius. His “living in a van down by the river” piece is something I think folks in Michigan don’t appreciate enough. If elected, I vow that you will.

Dick Devos is Fighting for Corporations & Special Interests … and maybe survival!

October 4, 2006

Dick Devos is Fighting for Corporations & Special Interests

What with my battles with search engine giant Google (do you have any IDEA what the Adword Budget of Dick Devos is?? Show a little love to the Head, Google!) I almost forgot about my Campaign to Take Back Michigan for the Corporations & Special Interests!

Wizard Kitten is still scratching at that Alterra thing. She can’t seem to understand that nobody cares if…

…the DeVoses and investors close to them appointed four of the corporation’s nine directors, effectively giving the DeVos family control over Alterra’s board of directors and responsibility of facility operations. Even though they were in the minority, those four directors had veto powers over board decisions because the votes of at least two of THEM were required for any motions to pass

So? Not pertinent. Nobody cares. Too complicated! Nobody cares if my family had control. They don’t even care that I tried to hide it.

The important thing is that Dick Devos is all business and it’s hard in business to keep track of every little thing. Let’s put it this way: say all my money and investments are potatos. Well, in that case, Alterra is SMALL POTATOS, so gimmee a basket of FREEDOM FRIES and let me get back on the road to Take Back Michigan for the Corporations & Special Interests!

She’s also claiming credit for blocking me in Google. Curse you, Kommie Kittie! While she MAY be partly responsible, I have to believe she wasn’t working alone!

PS: Don’t pay any attention to these articles either:

AP: Democrats say DeVos controlled troubled nursing home company
Detroit Free Press: DeVos defends investment
Detroit News: Nursing home flap escalates
Michigan Public Radio Network: Democrats Press Nursing Home Charges
Booth Newspapers: Dems go after DeVos on Alterra investment

And George Bullard, I would consider it an honor to step into the ring with you.

Stop Devos doesn’t like Dick Devos … and the feeling is MUTUAL

September 21, 2006

What’s “Oh No” to the third power?

Mad as HellNow this makes me REALLY mad. Here’s someone who says forget about China, forget about the fact that there’s no economic plan, the simple fact that Dick Devos was President of Amway should disqualify him from being Governor of Michigan.

Now I spent a heck of a lot of time getting people worked up about China and my hazy plan because I can and WILL make those things disappear with an October surprise wave of my hand and I object to any attempt to reframe the issue around Amway. Read the ruling, Amway is not an ILLEGAL pyramid scheme. Is it my fault that the pyramid structure is unfair? No, blame that on geometry. Stupid geometry. We’ll get rid of geometry and replace it with something more useful in the modern world. Intelligent design maybe.

Welcome to “the List”, Mr. Stop Devos. And by the way, The Head doesn’t torture puppies. Kittens every so often, but only liberal ones!
