    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'.

    Further indication that this is just diversion. Last week the story was the UAW's illegal abuse of their members -- now the story is bad GM is cheap and hurting itself $100m per day. Union...

    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...

    So what you're saying is that Ford knew they had a problem, and they were fixing it? Makes me think that the market was fixing things -- and then in steps the union. Maybe the real progress was...

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

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

    1965: no significant foreign imports. The US South and...

    An oft-repeated claim. When I hear it, seems to me like its a apology for how bad unions are today.

    Sure we suck, but we once did something great.

    I'm not so sure that the middle class was...

    Life is so much simpler when you can just erase complex history. Now we just have a glorious corporate entity to celebrate, and as dear Sen. Elizabeth Warren knows they are never evil.

    Last I saw (about 15 years ago) there was still a fair bit of the original interior, if I remember correctly. Did they restore some of it? Photos, anyone?

    Sprinklers no doubt destroyed a lot of paperwork that wasn't burn up. Too bad. There might be been evidence proving this was all a corporate conspiracy.

    Years ago, spent a lot of time in Wyandotte's bars -- including the 'house bars'. Most were fine corner bars. Great places to have a peaceful drink.

    Tlaib is the representative of much of Detroit, so its completely relevant to Detroit.

    Of course there is a foreign policy issue that has brought Rep. Tlaib into focus lately. But agreed that...

    Tlaib and Detroit

    Great to see Detroit in the news with Tlaib's support of anti-semitic policies. But no need for culture war here. Wondering how her constituents feel about her 'local actions'. How's she doing...
