Re: Why Try and Ban Guns, Plastic Bags, and Vapes?

Soon we will have no choices, no say in what we do or say. I don't want a nanny state. For crying out loud, let people make their own choices.

Why Try and Ban Guns, Plastic Bags, and Vapes?

What is banning gonna do? After all, they are all inanimate objects. Those things themselves don't do anything on their own and requires a user. 1. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. 2. Plastic bags don't pollute our waterways, people do by not disposing of them properly. 3. Vaping pens don...

Re: For all you idiots shaming stores and shoppers today

In protest, I will not go to stores on the holidays aforementioned. As long as people keep going they will continue to remain open or have extended hours. Plus I believe stores should be closed so people can spend time with family and not miss out on festivities. Been there, done that, it is NOT fun...

Re: For all you idiots shaming stores and shoppers today

Hobby Lobby is also closed on Sundays. It is rather nice they do that for the reasons you stated. There's a fast food restaurant chain we like in Florida called Chic-Fil-A. The owners run it on Christian principles and they are closed every Sunday. I'm not religious in any sense of the word. I'm the...

Re: For all you idiots shaming stores and shoppers today

It's completely the opposite here. It's sad that corporate greed takes people away from their families on such holidays. Kinda sad really. Here in Ontario, most workers get the day off for designated holidays The ones with the greatest guarantee of the day off are retail workers. Stores aren't permi...

Re: For all you idiots shaming stores and shoppers today

You must work if you are scheduled if you want your job. That is what it boils down to. You can always ask for a holiday off, but even then there is no guarantee. I usually have decent success with that. Money is nice but I don't really care about holiday pay or time and a half. It's just not worth ...

Re: The Blarney Stone Broadcasting Legacy

KLT is quite stale IMO. How many times do I need to hear Blue Oyster Cult, Rush, Foreigner, Kansas, etc.? Nothing against those bands but it's just the same stereotypical classic rock format.

Re: The Blarney Stone Broadcasting Legacy

I want to support local stations but I just can't get behind them. Grayling needs their country station back...perhaps in the form of a DUKE FM.

I wonder how much potential Indiana Toll Road traffic uses US-12 as an alternative?

Michigan Senate GOP leader: Time to return some paved roads to gravel

Interesting idea. Any merit? Perhaps. But I think turning some roads back to local control could be more effective. In fact, it sounds like MDOT is turning over the portion of M-37 on Old Mission Peninsula to the Grand Traverse County Road Commission. Of course these turn overs need to be examined c...

Re: Lawmakers consider toll roads in Michigan

Everyone recognizes there is a problem but nobody wants to pay for it. I don't know the answer but I do know the longer we wait the worse off everything will be. I'm not particularly a fan of tolling but at this point it seems logical...it's basically a user fee and you have a choice to use it or no...

Re: The Blarney Stone Broadcasting Legacy

The playlist is a big part of why I don't listen. It is indeed way out there. Most of the time I'm not in the mood to listen to obscure titles. I find radio more enjoyable hearing the songs I like and familiar with. And I really don't like their (I'll use MW's term) stationality. Everything is prett...
