Good column from Nolan Finley re: road funding

The road funding legislation that passed both houses in Lansing earlier this week is certainly better than nothing and not as distasteful (at least in my eyes) as Proposal 1. That being said - the morons in Lansing (especially on the house side and in the Governor's office) made this exercise far mo...

Re: Clinton calls 4 exxon probe aft cutting off foundation f

Extortion by a Clinton? Ya' don't say! Want to know what a Hillary presidency might look like? I suggest looking at Argentina. A Hillary presidency would likely be a tempered version of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's reign. Disgraced Illinois governor "Blago" learned from the best -- Slick Willie!...

Re: Snyder admin. willfully poisons Flint's water customers

Every P.R. person & press secretary for a government agency, politician or political candidate is nothing more than a shill mouthpiece. I discount 90% of what those people say.

Re: IP Ban

You shouldn't be having issues with that at this point. There were three or four different IP ranges that I banned (due to what appeared to be automated registrations) that turned out to be legitimate. I think I have reversed all of these bannings at this point. Please let me know if you encounter a...

Re: RNC Suspends NBC, Trump, Carson Support

To refer to candidates' campaigns as something out of a comic book and to disagree with candidates' positions/claims before even posing a question was completely inappropriate conduct on the part of CNBC. The first 45 minutes of the debate was chaotic and horribly mismanaged. The CNBC panel appeared...

Re: 2016 Presidential Polls

I agree with earlier posts here. Jeb Bush is toast.

His debate performance last night was very weak. He was nearly invisible. He also looks to be in poor health, but this could be incorrect conjecture on my part.

Re: Snyder admin. willfully poisons Flint's water customers

I interpreted the following comments from you as a personal attack against me: I don't think the people excoriating Governor Snyder and blaming him for the Flint water problems on this board give two hoots about the children and people of Flint getting too much Lead in their water. If that was not y...

I don't think the people excoriating Governor Snyder and blaming him for the Flint water problems on this board give two hoots about the children and people of Flint getting too much Lead in their water. It's become entirely politicized, for the purposes of electing a Democrat Governor in the next ...

Re: How About Michigan Just Ignore EPA Regulations?

Who made the decision to switch from the Detroit Water Department in the first place? Snyder's EM. It was't the decision to switch that is disturbing. From an economics standpoint, it looked like the right thing to do on paper. Rather, it is the failure to implement proper corrosion controls combin...

Re: How About Michigan Just Ignore EPA Regulations?

Ignoring EPA regulations didn't work so well for the Flint water situation.

How the ringleaders in the MDEQ are still employed on the taxpayer's dime is beyond me.

Biden ain't running

Not surprised in the least. It's way too late, Hillary's numbers have surged since the debate, and Biden's poll numbers as a theoretical candidate on the Dem side were always less than stellar. I knew when he didn't declare by Labor Day that the chances of him getting in the race were slim. The nume...
