MI taxpayers are on the hook for MEDC's propaganda campaign

Disgusting, but not surprising: http://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/22301 http://www.mackinac.org/archives/2016/149KMEDCInvoice.PDF From the article: Such claims should come with a high burden of proof, yet the company refuses to disclose the calculations behind this extraordinary claim, and ...

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

I can say that Snyder has been combative of the efforts made on his behalf in Washington DC.
You can't give us a "tease" like that without going into more detail! Please spill the beans.

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

Snyder says "I want to fix this" and "I want to be a partner" with the City of Flint. Look at the silver-haired jackass's double speak just within the past week: Quote #1 “I said we’re going to get rid of lead pipes. I’ve said it multiple times,” Snyder said after speaking at a journalism conference...

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

I have plenty of new thoughts on Flint, which I'll post later today.

Here's a preview: the actions (or inaction) and rhetoric in recent days from Snyder and Speaker Cotter are extremely disappointing and misguided. I'll explain why this evening.

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

I should pull up the past Wurfel quotes about how the decision to use the Flint River was made by the Flint City Council and "local officials." Of note, she is NOT implicated in the report in any direct fashion. I made it a point in my post to mention the stark inconsistencies between her statements...

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

Page 17 & 18 of the report: Darnell Earley tells Baird and Brader that "the water quality problem can be solved and it would be cost-prohibitive to return to DWSD." The executive summary of the report also states in no uncertain terms that the decision to switch to the Flint River - and to continue ...

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

The congressional hearings were a waste of everyone's time; they were nothing more than a venture in grandstanding. On both sides, the congresspersons were extremely rude and obnoxious to the witnesses. The very damning Flint Water Review Commission report came out today. Basically, the report refut...

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

Muchmore should've been called on to testify. The emails show he was very widely aware of the public's complaints regarding water quality.

Re: Rubio supporting Kasich?!?!

I wasn't thinking rationally when I said Trump might not even reach 1,000. That said, I stand by my prediction that he will fail to get the 1,237 necessary to clinch the nomination. Here's a flashback post of mine from a couple weeks ago: http://www.mibuzzboard.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=43561&...
