    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?

    Seeing that excellent sales photo, my first thought is that the Detroit UA is much better -- and that's saying a lot of course as the LA version is...

    It also may be true that a certain number of parking spaces are REQUIRED by city codes. Its the norm that you have to provide at least one parking space per apartment. (There are also typically...

    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.

    Regardless of the word choice, it's...

    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.

    Ray... that sentence was a bit lazy itself. I apologize.

    I believe that 99 44/100% of police are pure, but with the power to destroy live we have decided to have a system that leans towards...

    Strikes are almost never about the wages and benefits for one company/factory. A good offer that the members would accept may be turned down by the Union if it has strategic benefit for the UAW (for...

    Technology that doesn't achieve a reasonable level of impartiality can be a problem. Police and prosecutors have been known to be lazy, and weak technology may lead them into mistakes. I think its...

    So the public likes Asian-Americans because they are successful. But the elites discriminate against them in college admissions. We are screwed up bunch of racists, aren't we.

    Ha! Excellent!

    So the equity chorus requires set asides for under-performing districts... and then the 1% finds a way to 'game' the system.

    I'm sure Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that. ...

    I agree that DTW is pretty good. You can't blame them for ground transport. That option is discouraged by our excellent local legislators who prefer crony capitalism to economic growth.

    I distinctly remember the chains, and there were signs below as well. Don't recall what they said, but I imagine it was 'don't use except in emergency'.

    My thoughts exactly. Second I hear this, it was obviously a distraction to their scandal. How better to sweep scandal out of the public's mind than to go on strike.

    The cost of government isn't like the cost of Special K at the corner market. You can buy vegetables and organic beef, or you might choose to buy Cheetos and Faygo. Its not obvious (nor true) that...

    Just 8%? Just 1 in 12 improvements in our state's economy? That's huge!

    Auto remains very important to Detroit, that's clear.
