    Or look at it the other way. $11m invested conservatively should be able to net 5% a year w/o touching the principal. (Pension funds think they can do 7 or 8%.) So the annual payout for the rest of...

    Thanks for your opinion. The other opinion would be that high taxes are the result of success rather than the cause. Any reason why this doesn't make sense to you as well?

    The idea that more...

    Compensation means replace the worth of the person. The error here is to assume a productive life from a reprobate. Rather than 40 years of gainful employment, it seems possible this chap might...

    Hey CV, what makes you think that high taxes are the cause of success rather than a result?

    Seems just as possible that high taxes are enabled by an environment of success and happiness.

    I...

    I would assume that this wasn't a 'subsidy', but an 'investment', since that's what pension funds do. So does anyone else have information on 'subsides'?

    As to the pension fund investing in a...

    Its also a pop-media word. They insert it in any headline to make it seem BIGGER. Can probably be ignored, unless the story provides facts, which they usually do not.
  7. I don't know.

    I don't know.
  8. A suburban-style Meijer store 4 blocks away is...

    A suburban-style Meijer store 4 blocks away is more than chatter. Granted, its not my idea of Jane Jacob's development.

    Seems to me that the Meijer will do more long-term for that neighborhood...

    Jobs and education not his job. Safety is.

    Its a good sign that we are seeing progress on eliminating bad guys on the force. Its not a bad sign.

    The question is whether Craig is improving...

    It remains highly unacceptable, of course. There's a reason there are 'Internal Affairs' departments. Police have more power than citizens, as they must. So they have to be held accountable.

    So the 'students' weren't students. They were engaged in fraud.

    The DHS sting-school wasn't a fraud. They accurately represented themselves as a fraudulent school.

    I'm not sure it matter whether is was a 'scam' or not.

    The question is whether the presumptive 'students' had a right to remain in the USA or were they here illegally.

    If they were here...

    I have big doubts about public subsidies for development. But that doesn't bother me anywhere near as much as the ignorance of how the world really works.

    Gilbert seems to have taken the public...

    It should piss you off. But you shouldn't be surprised. It must be painfully clear to even the most ardent union supporter that something is wrong with the way we have organized our organized labor...

    Yet, there are some examples where they do get 'fixed'. New Orleans seems to have, at least to a great degree, 'fixed' their schools.

    This is an unacceptable argument. Certainly 'few involved...

    Yes.

    The important question is 'what checks the power for each'?

    Unions... not much -- members (once they've been certified) can't do much. Voting out bums, but only if they know they're being...

    'Power Corrupts...'

    Until we remove monopoly status from Unions, there is no way to stop corruption -- because they have unchecked power.

    Members have no choice. They should be able to have...

    Do you know how many seats the UA-LA has?

    RIP Rep. Conyers...

    Just read this on the WSJ. Seemed like a good man. I didn't like his politics, but respected him.

    Sorry that the media just can't help themselves from bringing up...

    Do I read correctly that the GM-UAW deal not only keeps open the Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly Plant (aka Poletown), but gives it a new electric truck line to produce? This would be a major win for...

    Your point is well taken. No dispute. And not surprising. People from a given group can see subtle distinctions between other members of their group. Well gee, they see them more, so much more...

    Tactic (I suppose) suggests that its tactical. Feels only like a slogan intended for their own to me, not intended to change GM's bargaining behavior.

    Read the article. Still no idea what 'games' they mean. GM made an offer that had a significant reduction in health. OK. How's that a game. Its an offer. Nobody is forcing you to accept it.
