How bad are Michigan roads? Hear for yourself


write a bill that is only;y for the roads, one that does not raise my taxes and one that is guaranteed road funding… and i will vote yes… Keep writing bills like prop 1, and I will keep voting no. Governor Rick Snyderplease use your accounting skills, or hire on outside auditor to review all of the State of Michigan’s finances and replace or remove any program that is not living up to its intended purpose. Remove any wasteful spending, review all offices for duplication of efforts, condense or close any office that is unneeded or wasteful. The people of this great state do not need to be taxed more, what we do need is a more transparent and responsive government. A government that does not spend more then they take in, and does not keep asking for more from it’s citizens. I am sure that there is money in the state budget that can be reallocated to the roads, I am sure that there are several state programs that can be eliminated to help achieve this. (For full disclosure, I voted for Governor Rick Snyder twice, and for the most part am pleased with what he has done for our state, but I feel he and the state legislators have dropped the ball on this one.)

I used to play a driving game with my kids when they were small. Whenever we found ourselves heading south on I-75 approaching the border with Ohio, I’d ask them to close their eyes and, judging only by the sound of the car as it drove on the road, tell me the instant we had left Michigan.

They never failed to guess correctly. Michigan’s roads have been so bad for so long, even a child can tell the difference.

The sad fact is that just 17% of our roads are rated in good condition. Next month Michigan voters will have a chance to change that by voting to approve Proposal 1.

Mother reports 9-year-old missing, police say he was arrested – Fox 2 News Headlines


Sad story on so many levels…


7483995_G

DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) – A Detroit mother calls police, panicked when her 9-year-old son doesn’t return home.

It turns out he wasn’t exactly missing, he was actually under arrest accused of committing a home invasion.

Stephanie Horton was in a state of panic Wednesday night when her 9 -year-old son Kamian Strawder was missing. The third-grader had been expelled from Palmer Park Prep earlier in the week and he had nowhere to be but at their Detroit home on Appoline.

Horton left for work around 9 a.m. Wednesday and says Kemian left to play with his friends. He still wasn’t home, she reported him missing to police.

One day later police called her Thursday to say her son wasn’t missing, he’d been arrested.  Late Thursday afternoon Stephanie learned the prosecutor had dropped the case.

“About two hours ago is when I got the call,” Horton said. “They said they have him in the detention center had him since 1 p.m. yesterday.”

EAST LANSING — Alice Dreger attended her son’s sex education class at East Lansing High School on Wednesday. She live tweeted it, too.

With 45 sharply worded tweets, she eviscerated the abstinence-focused sex education class. She made local school officials look like rubes on a national stage. And she did a bit of swearing, which she says led to her banishment from the high school campus.

By the end of the day, her tweets had been picked up by the national websites Salon and Vox.

East Lansing High School Principal Coby Fletcher issued a statement today saying that the district includes abstinence education but it’s not abstinence-only education as many were led to believe based on the tweets.

10 Historic Detroiters You Should Know


I just love my city… Detroit has a rich history, not only for Michigan, but for all of the United States…


old-detroit-map

The history of Detroit is complex and colorful, including people from different classes, nationalities, and races. You’ve probably heard names like Ford and Cadillac, but there are many more who make up the fabric of our past. Many of the people who influenced the city were born in other places, but they all shared one common trait: the desire to enhance Detroit, the city they chose to call home.

Whether they lived in the 1700s and helped the city flourish after its founding, or whether they strove to create equality in the 1900s, these Detroiters have left the city a lasting legacy.

U-M reverses course, will show ‘American Sniper’ movie as scheduled


What the heck! Look, it’s simple, you don’t want to see the movie, don’t go… Well maybe that’s a stretch for Liberals to understand, but you do have the free will not to attend. Lots of things make me uncomfortable, but I don’t protest to ban them, I just exercise my right not to attend or watch or purchase said item. Simple… Yet liberals feel a need to force there “feelings” upon the rest of us. As for the student who felt it would send the wrong message about there faith or nationality, to damn bad, this is America, freedom of speech is protected in this country. As for U of M canceling the viewing, shame on you, you are suppose to be a place of higher learning, as for them un-canceling the viewing, bully for you, but you should still hang your head low for even considering canceling the movie. Allowing a few to dictate and override the constitution is a sad commentary on the current state of our houses of higher learning. U of M should be a place where people should feel free to discuss issues, not one where we feel pressured to conform. But then again, Liberals have stolen our institutions of higher learning and turned them into a Liberal brainwashing institution. One where only liberal thoughts are allowed, so much for open discussions.

God Bless & enjoy the article

The university had cancelled the planned showing of the Iraq War movie after students, mostly Muslim and/or Arab, complained about it. The movie had been planned to be shown on Friday night at a social event for students.

That set off a firestorm of criticism – including from U-M football coach Jim Harbaugh, who tweeted: “Michigan Football will watch “American Sniper”! Proud of Chris Kyle & Proud to be an American & if that offends anybody then so be it!”

Last Week These Kids Had A Pile Of Broken Bikes, And Now They’ve Got Freedom


o-DETROIT-KID-BIKES-570It took Jean Wilson just four hours, a dozen helpers, $6, a few Facebook posts and one idea to make a big difference for a group of Detroit kids.

Wilson, a local artist and self-described “tinkerer,” is in the process of buying a building in Detroit’s Core City neighborhood to use as a studio and a workspace, which she envisions neighborhood kids using. The shop isn’t ready yet, but Wilson and a group of volunteers spent Saturday afternoon near the building, fixing up bikes for more than a dozen kids who live nearby.
