On March 3, 2011, U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann publicly
reported that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010
has some automatic spending for new health-care implementation that
must be rescinded immediately or the country will be forever changed
for the worse.  Contact U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives
to get the spending killed.  And see my document entitled National Health
Care and Mass Failure: The Reasons it is a Dead Issue, which

    The Cherry Hill Manor Apartments in Inkster are enclosed roughly between Biltmore Street and Beach Daly Road (west and east) and Westwood Park and Cherry Hill Road (south and north), and they have been there since the 1970s.  In the 1950s and 1960s, the land where the apartments are was a woods, and when I was a boy, I played in the woods, and some of the things that I did was track turkeys in the snow, look for polywogs and crayfish, run around, and make foxhole forts, which were made by digging holes and covering the holes with wood, such as logs and branches of trees that had fallen, and I even fought and beat down a few brush fires that had started on hot and dry summer days.  The way things are going in the world, such as with Barack Obama's personal attack on me and the United States of America and Barack Obama's support of radical La Raza types and Islamic types, I could be back in a foxhole someday soon.
    The ground where the Cherry Hill Manor Apartments are is basically a lot of sand covered with a foot or two of dirt (dirt and clay), and all the sand was from days when the area was beach, maybe sometime after the glacier that had covered Michigan receeded some number of thousands of years ago, and I say in jest, "Probably, the bears had too many fires in their caves and caused bear-made global warming."  Well, the warmer weather is on the way--that spring stuff and the summer stuff-- and maybe that means the bears in Michigan are cooking again or working to keep their toes--toes?--warm.  And that means the bears will soon be out to hunt for picnic baskets, especially those filled with peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches set up on picnic tables at Jellystone Park.

    You may be thinking, when I talk about Jellystone Park, I am talking about the cartoon character called Yogi Bear and his home base known as Jellystone Park, and that is not exactly what I am doing; Yogi Bear is a cartoon character who began to be seen in a syndicated television series called Huckleberry Hound in September 1958 and got his own show called The Yogi Bear Show in syndication in 1961 (to learn more about cartoons, particularly those of the 1950s and 1960s, you should see my document entitled T.H.A.T. #83, which can be reached by using this link: T.H.A.T. #83).  Actually, I am talking about "Frankenmuth Jellystone Park," which is a campground that has a Yogi Bear theme.  By the way, Frankenmuth (of Saginaw County of the Lower Peinsula) is one of the most popular tourist cities in Michigan.  Frankenmuth Jellystone Park has 250 campsites, a few of which are actually cabins and a few of which are designed for tents, and the place is a modern campground, having, for example, 20/30 amp hook ups, WiFi access, a mini-golf course, a playground, a laundry, and a recreation hall.  Frankenmuth Jelllystone Park is located at 1339 Weiss Street at Frankenmuth, and if you want more information about the place, you can find a Web site associated with it on the Internet.

    When I was a boy, in the early 1960s, my father would every once in a while drive between the Detroit area and the St. Joseph/Benton Harbor area on I-94 in Michigan with me and my siblings, and when we traveled through roughly the Battle Creek area, we would see billboards for Kellogg's (the cereal company) that advertised Kellogg's and even Hanna-Barbera cartoons, such as Yogi Bear, and sponsored Huckleberry Hound and The Yogi Bear Show.  That was a fun tme!  I believe, in essence, environmentals--those who did not like billboards--helped lead to the end of the Kellogg's billboard.

    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.

    Here is a reminder about real bears--they are dangerous.  However, there is one place you can see real bears up close.  Near Newberry, which is in Luce County of the Upper Peninsula, there is a place called Oswald's Bear Ranch, which is operated by Jewel and Dean Oswald, who have operated the place since the early 1980s.  It is not open in the winter.  It is scheduled to be open again from the Friday of the Memorial Day weekend through September 30, 2011, which is around the time of "color season" for the Newberry area.  I recently learned that the place has a "Bear Trolley," which is used to carry persons around the ranch that are unable to do much walking, which means the place is not only accessible to children but also to children--grownups--of all ages.  If you are planning to go to the Paradise area or the Whitefish Point area of the northeasern Upper Peninsula of Michigan this summer, keep Oswald's Bear Ranch in mind, and keep in mind the ranch is only open each day that it is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    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).

    In the previous edition of Michigan Travel Tips, I talked about a man named Mark Lee, the first Michiganian to have a Chevy Volt, and since then some news about the Chevy Volt has come to my attention.  David Champion of Consumer Reports magazine reported recently that the April 2011 edition of the magazine will have an article that discusses the Chevy Volt and how it is not cost effective, and more information is reported, such as information about a vehicle that was tested in Connecticut in winter could only get up to about 25 miles on a charge, instead of the reported 40 miles on a charge, and the reason for that is cold weather adversely affects batteries.  Some themes of the Consumer Reports article appeared in an article entitled "GM Volt doesn't make a lot of sense'" in The Detroit News on February 28, 2011 (Shepardson, David. "GM Volt doesn't make a lot of sense.'" The Detroit News, 28 February 2011, 5:22 p.m.).  You are urged to see my document entitled The Power and the Power Killers: Energy in the United States of America, which has more about the Chevy Volt and can be reached by using this link: Power.

    I must report more travel news.  It seems very likely you will see the price of gasoline go up, and you will hear from the liberal main media and the Barack Obama administration that the problem is Libya.  However, I report that Libya only produces two-percent of the world's oil, and eighty-five percent of that two percent goes to Europe.  The oil production and non-production in Libya has very, very little bearing on the price of gasoline in the United States of America.  The problem is Barack Obama, and to see evidence, you should see my document entitled The Oil-Rig Disaster of April 2010: Evidence that Shows Barack Obama Purposely Wanted to Hurt the Beaches, which can be reached by using this link: Oil Rig.  Remember: Barack Obama has been blocking the drilling for oil in the United States of America. ("FACTBOX-Libya oil production, outage, exports, customers." Reuters Africa, 2 March 2011, 5:03 p.m. GMT.)
    Note: Do not believe the idiots who say that problem is Libya.

    Oh, in the 1960s, I never did see any bears in the woods area that was developed into the area for the Cherry Hill Manor Apartments.

    Enjoy your safe traveling in Michigan!

    Hold it!  Here is some "unfinished business" (?).  I want to point out a city that has gone from pretty to ugly, and I am not thinking about Hell, Michigan (which really does exist).  On Sunday, February 20, 2011, CBS-TV began to run the weekly series called The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business, and the first episode opened in Palm Springs, California.  In almost every shot for several minutes the opening moments of the first episode, the producers could not avoid or did not want to avoid showing all the wind turbines that exist at Palm Springs in the hills.  It was horrifying to see all the wind turbines in what was once a pretty city.  When I saw the episode, I was thinking how horrible it would be to have cities all around the country have hundreds of wind turbines.  Palm Springs, California, is--in my mind--the poster child for the nonsense of communists and the wind-turbine generation of liberals.  The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business sold me on the idea of not going to Palm Springs, California.  (I urge you to see T.H.A.T. #83, which can be reached by using this link: T.H.A.T. #83.)

    I think I shall say: "Skip so-called paradise of California, and go to Hell, 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.)
