Re: If you can't win, just change the rules!

A better apportionment of the Electoral votes might be per votes. The current system gives States a min.of 3 one each for Senator and Rep. In Wyoming that works out to 1 vote for about every 500k people. If you used the same ratio of E. vote per 500k then just LA County in Cal. would have 270 E.vote...

Re: 20 Most Stressful Events For Millenials

Looking at the list in the original start of the thread, I noticed 7 items that were not even a thing when I was that age. So of course my stress wasn't anything techie but maybe it was the idea of getting my butt shipped overseas to fight for my Government. I remember my wife helping with homework ...

Re: US behind Chna in global leadership

If you look at the import/export top 10, the US's biggest export (4 of the top 7) are for recycling. Our major export is basically trash while the imports are all the goods we need. If your biggest exports is waste paper and plastic I don't think your destined for being #1. https://www.visualcapital...

Re: Washington Post Praises Gov. Whitmer's Gas Tax Proposal

Here's a thought... Blame Term limits! for the lack of fixing the problems.
It's so easy to kick the can down the road since the folks in Lansing don't have to run on their record beyond a couple go=rounds.

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

Some years ago there was a story on NPR about savings time. The story stated that the only area that showed any up tick was Mall traffic. Nothing else that could be verified as a + due to having the sun go down later.

Re: Gretcholm wants to raise fuel taxes by 45 cents/gallon by 2020

Interesting so far no comment on 'load limits' of trucks in the State. Ever notice the trucks with the big coils of steel? If the trailer has 1 coil it is leaving the State. If it has 2 it is not. Big difference in overall weight here. I once had a trucker explain that all the extra axles made the l...

two words "Overton Window" this is how the party's do business.

All these years we shout less taxes as the price to do work goes up, then how do you pay for 40 years of neglect.

Re: I hope you all can find new jobs soon

I like to listen to company heads that talk about how bad a union would be to all concerned. What they are forgetting is that the employee won't go for a union UNLESS they feel they need one to get a fair shake.
In a way they brought it all on themselves.

Re: National Anthem

At Univ. of Michigan hockey games the only anthem performed by the band is the US. The student section at 10 min. to face-off sing the Canadian anthem. This started several years ago and as time goes on more fans remove hats or stand and many sing along. The arena goes quiet till they are finished a...

Re: The Governor’s Clothing

Can someone tell us how much and where the suits are from on the male side?
If you focus on how a leader dresses over what they say or do.... then maybe you need to rethink how you evaluate people.

Re: Child Killer on WDIV

The John Norman Collins case was over 50 years ago. There was a good video that would show up on Ann Arbor CTN channel (local access) of a Kiwanis meeting with the then sheriff Harvey talking about it. He claimed that a DNA test was run years later when it became available and it tied Collins to the...

Re: General Detroit Movie Thread.

22 was the Global Network outlet in Windsor. What also set Global apart was the way they would cover big international stories. After giving their report, the news reader would give a lead in, "Here is how the U.S. views the same story."
