Detroit — A mother accused of killing two of her children and stuffing their bodies in a freezer pleaded guilty to their slayings in court Monday, detailing the gruesome details of their deaths.

Mitchelle Blair’s appearance in court Monday came after 36th District Judge Dana Hathaway adjourned a hearing Friday so she and lawyers for both sides could review results of an independent examination meant to determine if Blair was fit to stand trial. Blair, 36, was ultimately found competent and could be found criminally responsible in the case on Monday, Hathaway said.

Blair then pleaded guilty to premeditated murder and felony murder in her children’s deaths Monday. She had been charged with two counts of felony murder, two counts of premeditated murder and one count of torture. Hathaway accepted the plea after hearing the details of the children’s deaths.

Blair attended a competency hearing and preliminary examination Friday in the case. She was found competent to stand trial and waived her preliminary examination. Her next court date is June 26.

Blair also has a custody case brought against her by the state of Michigan regarding possible termination of her parental rights. She and fathers Alexander Dorsey and Steven Berry of her other children will find out June 30 from Wayne County Judge Edward Joseph if they have lost the rights over an 8-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl. The three have attended several days of hearings at the Wayne County juvenile court in the matter of the surviving children.

Bloomfield Hills opts out of SMART


OK, the the Detroit Free Press is a liberal newspaper, and they love socialistic government payed (off the back of taxpayers) schemes, but it’s one of only 2 Detroit news papers, so I read it (online only, I will not pay for it). That said…

Here is my point, I do not  like the fact that we, the taxpayers, subsidies masstransit, any kind of masstransit. It should be all privatized, let people who know how to make money do just that, start up a transit system, charge riders, make money. Trust me, they will figure out how to do so. Why should I give ,well not even give, have my hard earned money taken from to support a system that is not even breaking even?

A perfect example, the M1 rail is a private company, if it fails to make money, they will either find more people to donate to keep it running, up the fee to ride or shut it down. No tax dollars will be used to support it. I don’t live in Detroit, why should I pay for it? I don’t ride SMART, why should I pay for it? I don’t ride Amtrak, why should I pay for it? Sell of the naming rights, let corporations that in the transit business (Delta airlines, Greyhound, Big Bus) run them, let them figure out how to make money.

Do I feel bad for the Detroiters and elderly who do not drive, yet need a way to get to work or the mall… Sure. But, if the government stopped subsidizing SMART, then we wouldn’t need a SMART Tax (millage) and our tax bill would be less, and they would have more money…

Show me one thing, just one, that the government runs that even breakeven or is even efficient… you can’t, because it don’t exist.


B9317700336Z.1_20150611201237_000_G5KB27PJ7.1-0Let’s face it: Wealthy people aren’t taking the bus.

And they’re probably not interested in paying for others to ride one.

That message came across in Bloomfield Hills, where the city commission voted 3-2 Tuesday against joining SMART. Opting into the southeast Michigan regional transportation system would cost the city about $750,000 a year, but a majority of commissioners felt taxpayers wouldn’t be getting enough bang for their buck.

“Over 50 communities have opted out of SMART, including Novi, Northville, Livonia, Rochester and Plymouth, and, of course, the City of Bloomfield Hills,” Commissioner Sarah McClure said at the meeting. “And it’s mainly been a financial reason — it hasn’t been that these communities are necessarily against mass transit. In some cases, they found it made more sense to provide their own transportation.”

Friend says mother accused in freezer case was loving


Well it is clear that this mother had not right to be a mother, and she is, to put it bluntly, off her rocker,a few cards short of a full deck, a nut case…

Detroit — Mitchelle Blair, accused of killing her two children and entombing them in a freezer and abusing her two other kids, was described as a loving parent Thursday as testimony wrapped up in the juvenile court hearing to determine parental custody.

Blair, 35, interrupted the proceedings several times, muttering “lie” during testimony, prompting court deputies to warn her to be silent. As she was being escorted into the courtroom, hands cuffed in front of her, she flashed her middle finger toward the fathers of her children, Alexander Dorsey and Steven Berry — a repeat of the gesture she aimed at the media during a hearing last week.

She was arrested in March, after court bailiffs went to her townhouse in the Martin Luther King apartment complex to evict her, only to find the bodies of 9-year-old Stephen Berry and 13-year-old Stoni Blair inside the freezer near the front door.

Snyder signs controversial faith-based adoption bills


Ok, so what? What is the big deal? If the faith based agency turns you away, go to a non faith based agency, they will be more than happy to help you…

Oh, wait, thats to simple, and causes no ripples the the harmonious river of  tolerance and acceptance and liberal brainwashing…. I forgot, silly me…

Lansing — Gov. Rick Snyder signed a controversial package of bills Thursday allowing faith-based agencies to turn away gay and lesbian couples seeking state-supported adoptions.

Snyder signed the bills without ceremony just one day after the Legislature sent him the legislation. The law goes into effect immediately.

Faith-based adoption agencies now can invoke their sincerely held religious beliefs in denying adoption placement services to gay and lesbian couples who want to be parents. The agencies would be required to refer gay and lesbian couples to another adoption agency.

In a statement, the governor emphasized the bills codify adoption practices into law.

HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (WXYZ) – One Hamtramck woman has found a new way to try and get the city to address the problems with the roads…fill them with flowers.

Paige Breithart said she needed to call attention to the potholes because the city hasn’t done anything about it.

“There are a huge amount of potholes around the area, and I know a lot of people have been annoyed after bursting tires and avoiding them,” Breithart said.

She and her friend, Josh Gaudette, planted about 40 or 50 flowers across the city yesterday.

Here’s How Much Michigan ‘Prevailing Wage’ Law Costs Your School District [Michigan Capitol Confidential]


Any time the government dictates to the privet sector, it will always be bad… The free mark works, if it is let alone…


prevailingwage01

Michigan’s “prevailing wage” law costs residents more than $224 million each year, according to the Anderson Economic Group. Now there’s a website that brings the impact of that even closer to home.

Created by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Michigan, the new site lets people learn the cost of prevailing wage mandates for individual school districts. ABC of Michigan, which represents commercial, governmental and industrial construction industries, has consistently advocated for eliminating the state’s prevailing wage law, which essentially requires construction firms doing work for the government to pay union scale wages and follow union work rules.
