    Default Maine's New Governor!

    Here ya go Lynn ,,,, and I agree, this is a guy to like, he defiantely seems to have some real down to earth common sense ...



    Meet Maine 's New Governor --- In case you haven't heard about this guy before, his name will stick in your mind!

    The new Maine Governor, Paul LePage is making New Jersey 's Chris Christie look like an enabler. He isn't afraid to say what he thinks.Judging by the comments, every time he opens his mouth, his popularity goes up.

    He brought down the house at his inauguration when he shook his fist toward the media box and said, "You're on notice! I've inherited a financially troubled State to run. Observe...cover what we do...but don't whine if I don't waste time responding to your every whim just for your amusement."

    During his campaign for Governor, he was talking to commercial fishermen who are struggling because of federal fisheries rules. They complained that 0bama brought his family to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park for a long Labor Day holiday and found time to meet with union leaders, but wouldn't talk to the fishermen. LePage replied, "I'd tell him to go to **** and get out of my State." The Lame Stream Media crucified LePage, but he jumped 6 points in the pre-election poll.

    The Martin Luther King incident was a political sandbag, which brought him National exposure. The 'lame stream' media crucified him, but word on the street is very positive. The NAACP specifically asked LePage to spend MLK Day visiting black inmates at the Maine State Prison. He told them that he would meet with ALL inmates, regardless of race, if he were to visit the prison. The NAACP balked and then put out a news release claiming falsely that he refused to participate in any MLK events. He read it in the paper for the 1st time the next morning while being driven to an event and went ballistic because none of the reporters had called him for comment before running the NAACP release.
    He arrived at that event & said in front of a TV camera, "If they want to play the race card on me they can kiss my ass", and he reminded them that he has an adopted black son from Jamaica and that he attended the local MLK Breakfast every year that he was mayor of Waterville. (He started his morning there on MLK Day.)

    He then stated that there's a right way and a wrong way to meet with the Governor, and he put all special interests on notice that press releases, media leaks, and all demonstrations would prove to be the wrong way. He said any other group, which acted like the NAACP could expect to be at the bottom of the Governor's priority list!

    He then did the following, and judging from local radio talk show callers, his popularity increased even more: The State employees union complained because he waited until 3 P.M. before closing State offices and facilities and sending non-emergency personnel home during the last blizzard. The prior Governor would often close offices for the day with just a forecast before the first flakes. (Each time the State closes for snow, it costs the taxpayers about $1 million in wages for no work in return.)

    LePage was CEO of the Marden's chain of discount family bargain retail stores before election as governor. He noted that State employees getting off work early could still find lots of retail stores open to shop. So, he put the State employees on notice by announcing: "If Marden's is open, Maine is open!"

    He told State employees: "We live in Maine in the winter, for heaven's sake, and should know how to drive in it. Otherwise, apply for a State job in Florida !"

    Governor LePage symbolizes what America needs; Refreshing politicians who aren't self-serving and who exhibit common sense.

    THE LAW IS THE LAW! -----I really love this one.

    This is one of the better e-mails I have received in a long time! I hope this makes its way around the USA several times over!!!!! HERE IS WHAT Governor LaPage said,

    "THE LAW IS THE LAW
    so "if" the US government determines that it is against the law for the words "under God" to be on our money, then, so be it.

    And "if" that same government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.

    I say, "so be it," because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen.

    I say, "so be it," because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.

    I would like to think that those people have the American public's best interests at heart.

    BUT, he said, "YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I'D LIKE?

    Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don't believe Government (Federal, State and Local) and its employees should participate in Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of American life.

    I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter. After all, it's just another day.

    I'd like the" US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays." After all, it's just another day.

    I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all it's just another day.

    I'm thinking a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."

    In fact....I think our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshipping God....) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day...."

    What do you all think???? If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the "minority opinions" and begin, once again, to represent the "majority" of ALL of the American people.

    SO BE IT...........Please Dear Lord, Give us the help needed to keep you in our country! 'Amen' and 'Amen' Touché!

    These are definitely things I never thought about but from now on, I will be sure to question those in government who support these changes.

    If this gets around the country a few times, perhaps we will see a better day! But I doubt it since the American people have become so PC and spineless.

    His name was Paul LePage. Not Mario Cuomo.
    How are real estate prices in Maine? I'd bet they sell out fast.
    Thanks Luke.

    Second part of that("the law is the law") I am pretty sure has floated around in emails for years, and with different authors/origins. Not so sure that was actually originally from Le Page, but I could be wrong.

    He sounds like a good one though.

    You are correct.

    Funny thing is this guys approval ratings are in the toilet.

    Maine has voters' remorse on Governor LePage - Public Policy Polling
    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands; one nation INDIVISIBLE with liberty and justice for all.
