Joe Nollenberg at Arts, Beats and Eats

It's Labor Day weekend and Joe NOllenberg is campaigning at Arts, Beats and Eats in Downtown Pontiac, telling people about some of Joe Knollenberg's bad votes in Congress, taking pictures with visitors to the festival and having some fun.
Joe found a booth where he could have his picture taken with Elmo.

Trent ties Primaries to survival of Auto Industry

Now this is over the top, Trent, tying the survival of the auto industry to Michigan's primary election. The reason the auto industry is in trouble is because they put short-term corporate profits ahead of long-term stategy. We've all known that higher oil prices have been coming for a long time. What did the U.S. auto industry do, build more SUV's that get awful gas mileage. So now what do they want? They want Congress to sit on their hands instead of demanding that U.S. built vehicles give consumers higher gas mileage.

We should demand better from our auto manufacturers and the Democrats did the right thing by revoking the $6 billion in subsidies to the oil companies that are already making historical profits off the backs of average Americans. Joe Knollenberg and Republicans are always willing to put profits ahead of people.

The survival of the auto industry doesn't depend on when Michigan votes for our presidential candidates. It depends on our representatives doing the right thing for a change.

If we can put a man on the moon in 10 years, surely we can figure out a way for our cars and trucks to get 50 or even 100 miles per gallon. But that will take leadership and that's what Joe Knollenberg is short on.

One more thing, Trent, you might want to get a new picture. This one looks like those mug shots of Tom DeLay and Larry Craig.

More from the End The War Rally at Pontiac Central

Almost 600 people packed the auditorium at Pontiac Cental High School on August 28 to send a message to Joe Knollenberg that when he goes back to Congres in September, he should listen to his constituents and not George Bush and support the troops and bring them home to their families and loved ones.

Joe NOllenberg made an appearance and was serenaded by the Raging Grannies.

There were lots of impeachment signs visible. Hold George W. Bush and Dick Cheney accountable for their crimes against humanity.

John Conyers spoke to the Iraq Summer Town Hall meeting in Pontiac, Michigan last night. This isn't the entire video, but Conyers did say impeachment is on the table, but the votes do not exist to successfully prosecute Bush and Cheney for their crimes against America.
