Re: Gretchen the Media Queen

Joe Biden is smart, which is why he will select Whitmer over Susan Rice. Let me start where President Trump missed a big score. Selecting Raymond Kethledge, a Big 10 alum and lifelong Michiganian for the Supreme Court in 2016. Stabenow and Peter's would have voted against him (possibly sinking both ...

Re: Irresponsible local television news reporting

While I would not defend past slavery, I would remind you at the present many of us wear clothing and are using electronic devices made by non-white people who don't earn anywhere near a livable wage. Where is the outrage on modern slaves who supply the West with our often unnessasary goodies? Let's...

Re: WFUR FM Sold, New Owners Filing Status Change for Commercial Station

I assume they kept the tower and lease revenue? Kuiper used to do mainstream Protestant publishing.

I think this group is out of Charlotte, I know they bought the old NPR in Cincy.

Will this soon go non-com, with 24/7 Catholicism and non stop Hail Marys?
No, Relevant Radio couldn't afford to run WMKD @ 100kw a decade ago.

Re: Catholic radio in Detroit

Didn't we learn from this the last time? FDR had to call in Joe Kennedy to get the Pope involved... Shrine of the little flower and Fr. Coughlin. Remember? It turned into a Communist cell before the Pope shut that down. WJR was home base for Father Coughlin and his ministry. FDR did shut down Cough...

Re: Michigan's priorities

With state senate districts being redrawn (perhaps less favorably - prop 3?) before the next election AND several moderate republicans in the house, Whitmer may get more done then I thought she would. Her big challange may not be splitting her own party like she may do by passing auto insurance refo...

Re: I'm Thrilled

As to Supreme Court Justices I think/wish they should be elected by the people and/or have a set term. I'm OK if that term is 10-12 years but it should have an end. I agree on term limits for federal judges. I would add Congress, 10 years rep, 12 years senate. Judges getting 12 years terms is fair,...

Re: Trump's Challenge: Put Men Back To Work

In the 70's, the middle class wasn't shrinking, many workers were able to find a paralell job after periods of unemployment. Now some people (think Electrolux in Greenville) go from $17 to $10 an hour after periods of unemployment. Factor in higher insurance costs and higher deductibles as well. The...

Re: Trump receives coveted endorsement!

http://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/donald-trump-praises-man-he-once-called-a-neo-nazi#.wayL5MvMw I am shocked at how far DT has advanced.
