I remember the same speech! I brought it up just last week! Early on you really thought the kwamster could make a difference. Oh... he made a difference all right!

Dh signed up for DeVos's campaign as soon as he was announced. Took a month of him listening to me, news, read to realize that we didn't have a choice! Very similar to the campaign four years earlier... anyone want Feiger for governor? BWAAHAHAHAHAHAH oh stop me now.

It has to do with the cost of engineering, materials, the federal government's crash, fuel economy, emission standards, etc. Comparable Japanese cars built in non union plants cost the same or more. It isn't the union. (and no, dh doesn't work for or in a union.) Perhaps you'd rather the ALL be built overseas at 2 bucks at hour by a kid in a third world country.

This Dateline segment pretty much sums up what my parents bought hook, line,... and sinker. Books, tapes, meeting fees, and such... they did it all. They were convinced all of the time that "freedom" was just right around the corner. What they didn't know was that those things (books, tapes, "major function" fees, etc.) were the primary income source of those they "worshiped", and not the commissions from the sales of Amway products. Even though Amway isn't directly responsible for these scams, they know about the abuses, but they are dependent on the sales from the scammers and have decided to look the other way. Therefore, I view them as being just as guilty.

WOOO HOOOO! I forgot it was on! I went to the farmer's market and did some running around, then have been listening to foxnews.

I'll have to call up DH and tell him that we're winning so he's more than welcome to join and leave his belovedcoughlosing wolverines behind!

Hello Neighbors!

DH and I both grew up in Dearborn - I'm a Fordson grad and he's a Dearborn grad. We raised our family in Woodhaven and Allen Park a/k/a downriver. We have lived in the Lansing area since late 1992. We are frequently in the Dearborn and downriver area visiting friends and relatives and DH works (or primarily laid off this year) at the Ford Truck Plant in Wayne.

I thought KK would never resign because of his ego. I had to listen to his "farewell" speech and it sounded like he was on a campaign. But, of course, he said he'll be back.

Coleman ran the city into disrepair. Archer never had a chance to bring it back. KK wasted taxpayers' money. What a sad comentary about our beloved Motor City.

Do any of you, or are any of you old enough, remember Lou Gordon on channbel 50 with his rants on Jerome Cavanagh? This was in the 60s.

Yeah MSU!!!!! My DH was there and has season tickets.

Enjoy this beautiful weekend.

Jan

I lived from K-5th grade a mile down Newburgh from the Wayne Assembly plant! Growing up I thought everyone lived near an auto plant. My dad worked at the NAOO building in Dearborn, which is no longer there.

I remember Lou Gordon, but not the rest. I was born in 66 (on Michigan state property! LOL)

I heard this week that Feiger is considering a run for mayor.

I can't believe how many neighbors are dissers!! I currently live downriver, but was raised in Redford. Went to CMU for college. Alot of Metro Detroiters here!!!!

What in the heck does this mean?The only thing I didn't like was the toilet paper situation. I'm sure I'd manage just fine though

I heard that too. He doesn't currently live in Detroit though so he'd have to move.

Howdy neighbors! I live in Monroe which is south of downriver (there is a whole county below Wayne County!) I think the whole state of Michigan should apply for bankrupty and have the federal government bail it out.
Maybe we should have a dismeet?

I'm all for a DIS meet. MY aunt, who is also a DISer, and I tried to plan a DIS meet last year and no one showed up. Lot's of people SAID they would be there but they weren't.

I'm all up for trying it again though. Maybe that first meet was just a fluke thing.

I've planned a few Michigan DIS meets in the past (haven't had one in a few years) that had pretty good turn outs.....we've met at 12 Oaks Mall in Novi & at Meridian Mall in East Lansing.


& Feiger running for mayor would be a disaster!
