Re: Good column from Nolan Finley re: road funding

I think its outrageous that Michigan has a 164,000-pound gross weight limit while the federal standard is only 80,000 pounds.

Re: Good column from Nolan Finley re: road funding

"Some say Michigan’s 164,000-pound gross weight limit — which is more than double the federal standard of 80,000 pounds — is causing unnecessary damage to Michigan roads."

Re: Good column from Nolan Finley re: road funding

It really irritated me that these road funding packages didn't consider lowering the state's weight limit for trucks. We are more than double of what is nationally.

Re: Michigan Road Funding

Either way you look at it, we're all up shit creek. All these delays will only make the necessary repairs/rebuilding even more costly.

Re: Michigan Road Funding

Well I don't see any other ideas getting passed. Everything needs to be on the table at this point. I think Michigan residents would go along with something like this simply because it doesn't involve a tax increase. Isn't that what everyone has been screaming for? Quite frankly I am disgusted with ...

Re: 2016 Presidential Polls

I have found that polls are often meaningless. When it comes right down to it, it comes down to the actual choice the voter makes. Once you vote it's final. But when answering polling questions it's just a guess and you can always change your mind which I am sure many do.

Re: 2016 Presidential Polls

I think it speaks volumes about the legitimate candidates and our political system when some people are actually for DeezNuts.

Re: Trump

I'm really liking what he's saying about the 14th amendment and illegals. If these kids are born here and their parents were illegals then the kids should be illegal as well. The United States should NOT automatically make them US citizens because they were born here.

Trump

The guy is a little out there and is crude but damn he tells it like it is. I like how he says things the other candidates wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole. Is he a legitimate contender? Only time will tell. But he is saying things people are liking to hear and has the balls to say them. Screw pol...

Re: 2016 Presidential Polls

On Gretta on Fox News last night while channel surfing they were doing a Twitter poll of "When Trump speaks are you MORE or LESS likely to vote for him"? I checked periodically and the polling remained steady 82% MORE Likely and 18% LESS Likely.
