Re: I fully support the Trump immigration proposal

The Democrats will overplay their hand, just like they did on Justice Kavanaugh and just like they did on Obamacare reform. The Democrats are supposing (probably correctly) that if they sit and wait Trump out the mounting pressure on him to reopen the government that the public feels he is holding h...

Re: Fake news, agenda-driven bias, and ignorance

LL101 is 100% correct in his first post. Even CNN (somewhat) posted a retraction this morning, although I'm sure it will receive nowhere near the amount of coverage as its original, defamatory, largely inaccurate reporting on this matter did. Ditto for the other MSM outlets. ABC News was especially ...

Re: I fully support the Trump immigration proposal

. I'm not sure I agree with MW's idea of announcing to the dems that they have 2 weeks or else a national emergency will be declared - No, I said give them two weeks to come to the table. I did not mean he should publicly announce that he's setting a two week deadline. Sorry if I wasn't clear. You'...

Re: 97.3 Grand Rapids shut down

So, is 97.3 Grand Rapids still on the air, or did it go silent again?

Re: I fully support the Trump immigration proposal

I have some experience in the area of negotiating. I do it on a regular basis as part of my job. Granted, I'm not dealing with matters of national security or billions in government spending. But I deal with debtor attorneys, other financial institutions, etc. regularly on matters involving multi-mi...

Re: I fully support the Trump immigration proposal

Martha Radditz (sp?) on ABC News has an interesting report regarding the border situation this morning. All of you 'crisis' deniers should watch it. What the President did today was pretty damn smart. he addressed the nation and laid out a workable plan to get the government back up and running. If ...

Re: Jim Fouts Top 10 Albums

12 Mile is maintained by Macomb County, but I know the city chipped in 50% of the resurfacing costs between Ryan Rd and Van Dyke. Why those sections were fixed while the section between Ryan an Dequindre (to this day) remains in a state of total disrepair is an interesting point to ponder. My neighb...

Re: Any snow yet where you are?

Oh and apparently more snow tomorrow
That's fake news. Only lake effect prone areas around Port Huron and into portions of the thumb are supposed to see snow today.

This doesn't need to be complicated.

Re: Analyzing the Cumulus format moves...

GR is being known as an artistic and more youth oriented place these days, so that probably helped Cumulus’ decision, too. Time will tell, it is definitely an interesting choice... You are correct that this was a key consideration. In regards to Iheart, can somewhat Imagine WOOD being put on 101.3,...

Re: Any Snow Yet Where You Are?

Thanks, NS8401. I appreciate the support! :) I snow blowed an hour ago. My final verdict is about 4 inches fell at my house...a bit less than I first suspected. Very little additional snow accumulated after my 1:57 PM post. What I had on the ground wasn't "light & fluffy" like certain forecasters we...

Re: I fully support the Trump immigration proposal

Correction to an earlier monetary figure I cited: the humanitarian assistance figure is actually $800 million, not $200 million. I must've mixed up that number with the border agent / law enforcement stipend. The Dems in Congress with their highly irresponsible comments today are effectively giving ...

Re: I fully support the Trump immigration proposal

The three years thing is just kicking the can down the road and probably to a new president... if he had offered permanent DACA protections and a path to citizenship he would have probably gotten them talking. The fact Trump is willing to establish the deadline beyond his existing Presidential term...

Re: I fully support the Trump immigration proposal

Good points, Craig. On a similar note, I would point out that private industry is hurt by a prolonged government shut down. No paychecks to government employees can have a substantial impact on local economies in areas where the federal government is the largest or one of the largest employers. Reta...
