Dear Vave, Mark, and All,

I wholeheartedly support this and let us not forget that not only has the 
BEP program been trashed here in violation of existing law, but, also the 
general VR and IL programs have been trashed too.

Dear Mark,

   As far as I am concerned, the culprits, all of them including the BSBP
management, the creeps in Lara and the sellout BEP operators, crossed the
red line a long time ago.  It is only the organized blind of Michigan, the
NFB of Michigan, that will do anything.  I to, call upon our leadership to
adhere to the resolutions passed by our members and move in strength against
the lawless of this State.

Dave Robinson

Has enough damage been done to act upon our resolution which was passed last
year in covention to re-establish the Michigan Commission for the Blind. As
the author of that resolution, I believe the time has come to take our
rights back as blind person of the State of Michigan. Let's stand together
and restore the rights we were afforded under PA 260.

Where is your red line?

Tim Horton's May Set Up Shop Inside State Capitol
Posted: Sep 04, 2013 4:49 PM EDT<em class="wnDate">Wednesday, September 4,

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - For the first time in State Capitol history, a
commercial business may be allowed inside the building to provide food to
Capitol occupants.
Room 54, on the bottom of the state Capitol, used to be the House press
room, but soon the name of 'Tim Horton' will be on the walls. Those walls
will be taken out and in the room, seats will be set up for school kids,
lobbyists and lawmakers to purchase some coffee and donuts, but the move is
creating some controversy.
"What's next? Are we going to be called the Chick-fil-A Capitol?" asks
Senator Gretchen Whitmer.
The Tim Horton Company has been dealing with the commission for the blind,
which has exclusive rights to sell food in state buildings. If the deal is
consummated, not only will the company come into Room 54, but it would take
over the restaurant area in the House office building
Right across the street from this coffee shop, which raises some questions.
"We've always been opposed to unfair competition or government competition
with the private sector," said Rob Fowler, the CEO of the Small Business
Association. "The more we know, the more it looks like that is going on."
The governor's office is concerned about this proposed contract, given its
desire to promote Michigan businesses and Tim Horton's is Canadian owned.
"We're really trying to promote Michigan and in the Michigan Capitol and
Michigan taxpayers paying for this. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to
me," said Whitmer.
But Rep. John Walsh says he's excited by the possibility. "Iwould love a
U.S. firm to have every opportunity, but the Canadian firm is an
international business that operates throughout our country. It hires U.S.
citizens, provides services we care about. I'm not nervous about that," said
Walsh.
