    I begin by reporting that I am the authority on The Mackinaw WAGB-83 (which was once only known as The Mackinaw WAG-83 and which is now a museum at Mackinaw City).  Since I published the previous edition of Michigan Travel Tips, I discovered, around November 11, 1949, The Mackinaw WAG-83 was used to get and then sink a ferry called The Islander in Duncan Bay (off of Duncan Road), which is the bay where, roughly, Cheboygan State Park is today (in Cheboygan County of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan).  The ferry was once used by a ferry company informally called "Arnold," which still exists today and which used the ferry to get people between Mackinac Island and either St. Ignace or Mackinaw City.  Mackinac Island is one of the very popular tourist attractions in the State of Michigan (made up to two big peninsulas), and it is, in essence, sort of between the Lower Peninsula and the Upper Peninsula in Lake Huron.  From the Mackinac Island, a person can easily see the world-famous Mackinac Bridge.  Oh, I have not been to Cheboygan State Park, which is along US-23 in Cheboygan County, to see if I could detect some evidence of the old ferry called The Islander.  If you want to go search for clues, which might mean you would have to do snorkeling, you will need at least a day pass to get in to the park, which should be available at the entrance to the park.

    Advertisement: The commercial in this edition of Michigan Travel Tips urges you to get a copy of Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, which is a book written by Mark R. Levin.  This book will help you understand better what Barack Obama is--a man who is purposely hurting the country, even though he is the president of the country--but the book is really about enslavers--politicians--who do not believe in the values of The U.S. Constitution and how The U.S. Constitution is designed to limit the power of the government, especially a dictatorship, over the individual (the citizen).  Remember: In the United States of America, it is the individuals who own the government and not the government that owns the citizens, the latter of which is what Barack Obama wants and is pushing for.

    I wonder how many modern-day electric cars have crossed the Mackinac Bridge so far in history.  Not many exist in the the country, so if you read this, you probably do not travel in Michigan in an electric car.  By the way, I see General Motors (in essence, a company loyal to Barack Obama) has recently cut the price of the electric vehicle called the Volt by $4,000, since sales are not doing well [Snavely, Brent.  "GM slashes price of Chevrolet Volt to boost stalling sales." Detroit Free Press, 11 June 2013, 1C.]

    So you are traveling in your vehicle--whatever it is--and....

    Hold it!

    I was thinking about talking about some historical homes around the state, and in my files, I first came across the Singapore House, which is located near Saugatuck (of Allegan County) and which has in the past been open to home tours, as something to mention in this Michigan Travel Tips.  The house is something that can be seen on the Singapore Dunes from Lake Michigan.  It is near the mouth of the Kalamazoo River.  I decided to see what was happening with the house, and I came across information that the house went up for sale in May of this year [Harger, Jim.  "Billionaire's $10 million home on Lake Michigan rises from key spot on the Singapore Dunes."  MLive.com, 11 May 2013, 11:52 a.m. (updated 5:42 p.m.).  It is a big-deal mansion.  My research led me to another "Singapore" house in the Saugatuck area.  The place is the "Singapore Cottage," which is much smaller than the "Singapore House" is.  The "Singapore Cottage" is a place that vacationers can stay at--after having made reservations to stay there.  The small house is two blocks from the downtown area of Saugatuck.  The owners are unknown to me, but I did find an email contact on the Internet.  I know nothing about the quality of the house, such as how well it is kept up for people who might wish to stay there, so I will only say that you will have to decide for yourself whether or not you wish to be there.

    I can say that both the Singapore Cottage and the Singapore House look good in the photographs that I saw on the Internet, being places that people have taken care of, unlike many, many, many houses in Detroit, most of which could have lasted for many more decades if the owners would have simply kept the houses in good repair.

    Yes, some people crap in their own nests.

    By the way, I saw the City of Detroit, which is in bankruptcy, is going to pay Christie's (the auction house in New York) $200,000 to do appraisal work at the Detroit Institute of Arts, which might include a statue of "The Thinker" (by Rodan) out front [Stryker, Mark.  "Christie's returning to appraise DIA's art."  Detroit Free Press, 6 August 2012, pp. 1A and 6A.), and, at the moment, "The Thinker," a type of person that is not found in useful numbers of Detroit, can still be seen at the entrance to the Detroit Institute of Arts, along Woodward Avenue, Detroit, and it seems very likely, if any materials in the Detroit Institute of Arts are sold off to help pay of the debt of the City of Detroit, "The Thinker" will not be one of the first things to be sold off, given the city lacks thinkers and has an abundant number of idiots, communists, socialists, and black radicals--but you never know.

    Of course, I do not promote going to Detroit to see anything, even "The Thinker" at this time n history, as I have stated in previous editions of Michigan Travel Tips..

    Promotional announcement: The Landmark Legal Foundation is made up of lawyers, such as Mark R. Levin (of The Mark Levin Show, a nationally syndicated radio show), who fight in court cases against those who do not uphold The U.S. Constitution and the rule of law for the country, and the Landmark Legal Foundation fights for the rights of the individual and against Marxists, communists, and the like.  In this day and age when Barack Obama, who, I am convinced, has a truly highly ill mind, is going against the rules of the country while pursuing a goal--I believe--to hurt the country and remake it or destroy it, I believe the Landmark Legal Foundation needs your help desperately; for example, retired lawyers who want to protect the country should consider donating time to helping the Landmark Legal Foundation.  I urge you to avoid making any donations to entities that promote manmade global warming or climate change and make a donation to the Landmark Legal Foundation instead (by the way, you should look into supporting the Heritage Foundation).

    While you travel around, remember what you see may not really indicate how well or not well the economy, such as tourism in Michigan, is going.  For example, you may look around and think all is well with the health-care industry in the country, now that "Obamacare" is about to really kick in; however, your looking around only shows the surface of what the country is, and, for instance, it does not show how health-care costs related to insurance are skyrocketing because what has been enacted in the law so far and what people, such as at health-insurance companies, are setting in placed, based on the law, force on them (by the way, on August 2, 2013, Mark Levin noted on his nationally syndicated radio talk show that, the cost of health-care insurance for the members of the Landmark Legal Foundation have risen from $210,000 in 2010 to $460,000 to today).  The trees and rivers and lakes and corn fields and flying birds and bees and such do not reveal the real status of the economy, so when you travel, look for closed stores, the moods of the people you meet, et cetera, which really tell the story of the country and Michigan

    Stay well!


    P.S. #1: Remember: While you travel in Michigan, remind your children or grandchildren that they should never pledge to be a "servant to Obama" or a servant to any politician or sing the praises of Barack Obama, and to help you remember other matters that you should teach children about bad politicians, such as Barack Obama (who can be described as an "enslaver"), see such other documents of mine as Conservatism for Children and What Conservatism Means (which can be reached through this link: Conservatism) and Lessons for Children about Politics and Dangerous People (which can be reached through this link: Children).  (Note: I first passed along the subject of not being a "servant to Obama" and the like in the publication entitled T.H.A.T. #58, which can be reached through this link: T.H.A.T. #58.)
