    Worst places to live in America: 6 Michigan cities make list
    We've had a parade of conservatives as governor doing the most damage they can to our state for many years. Michigan didn't just change because of a Democrat governor this term. Our last CONservative governor decided to tax senior citizens pensions and 401K's, which wound't be such a bad thing if he had done something useful with the money but he used it to give his rich donors a huge tax break. No fixing roads with it. Nothing that benefits us all. Just funneling more money to the already super wealthy. Oh, he also poisoned the city of Flint, so there's that. He is also being charged with the tragic foolishness that he was in charge of.

    I want to have a fleet of Ferrari's but you know what they say about wanting. Sometimes we need to do things that make sense instead of treating adults like spoiled children. If we do that we will have a whole country of trumps running around bitching.

    I'm just guessing here but trueturning is probably in his late 80's judging from what he posts.

    Ries, Please don't confuse these jut cases with facts. They are used to believing whatever trump tells them and it has been mostly lies. They seem to not mind being lied to as long as it fits their dream world.

    "rich donors.....tax breaks" I laughed when some Democrats bad mouthed Dan Gilbert over supposed tax breaks and his support for Republican candidates.

    Think the mayor of Flint was Democrat and Dem Gov Granholm was alleged to know about the water situation.
    Granholm had the worst rating in history of any Governor but not to worry Joe is putting her in charge energy.

    You do know that separate but equal bathrooms were outlawed more then 50 years ago. It is only starting to be realized this also applies to sex not just skin color.
    It is funny to read a ad for when the hire a pe teacher. They can not say boys pe or girls pe teacher. They say they have to be able to supervise undressed students of the given sex without causing undue stress for the students.

    Oddly one of the biggest all-women colleges in the US has exactly that: coed bathrooms in the dorms. And yes male vistors use them.
    And again, oddly, nobody's had a hissy fit about the situation. You should probably get out more.

    You should try some of the nightclubs in Austin Tx, they may have a sign on the door, but nobody pays attention, get in, get out, mind your own business, there might be 4 people in the stall next to you, none of my business what they are doing.

    Do you know that separate but equal bathrooms toilets used to flush with just the water filling the tank or filling source pipe, nowadays for some you need electricity to make them flush.

    So with power down, you have a warm beer and a stinky bathroom.

    Yes, You can manual flush with a bucket of water.

    Show me what Texas is asking of the Federal government for because of this. What handout?

    “ Modern secession efforts have existed in the state at least since the 1990s, focusing first on the Republic of Texas organization and the “Texas Nationalist Movement”. Recent discussion between Texas Republican Party representatives renewed talks of secession after the decision of the Supreme Court on Texas v. Pennsylvania.”

    “ Republic of Texas organization[edit]
    There have been efforts to promote Texas secession in the state at least since the 1990s.[15] At this time, Richard Lance McLaren founded the Republic of Texas organization based on his property within the Davis Mountains Resort in Jeff Davis County, becoming the most active and influential secession group at the time. Essentially the organization claimed that the United States annexed Texas illegally and considered it to be held captive. The organization held itself out as an alternative government, based on the principle of very limited powers.[6]
    McLaren had both supporters and enemies. His supporters generally believed that globalization was a threat to constitutional rights and against Christian principles.[16] Tactics of the group included filing liens against properties, disavowing state and federal authorities, and opening an "embassy". McLaren's legal filings were so numerous that the county clerk gave them a separate cabinet.[16] Members of the Republic of Texas group listed grievances with the U.S. government, such as accusing the government of a corrupt judicial system, paganism, and of creating illegal treaties and illegitimate agencies. Members of the group also stated that the U.S. government had set itself above the people and had exercised its global influences unlawfully against the Constitution. The Republic of Texas members placed a lot of emphasis on the Branch Davidian incident near Waco as an example of all that was wrong with the U.S. government.[6]
    In the summer of 1996, injunctions and other court proceedings against McLaren were well underway. In July of that year, McLaren held a press conference a block away from the state courthouse in Austin stating that he refused to appear because he did not recognize the legitimacy of the court.[6] McLaren was jailed for a month by a federal judge for failing to show in court. After his release, McLaren's rhetoric grew stronger.[16][17][18]”.

    The Federal government owns 2% of the land in Texas.

    Damn. There goes my original thought for the day.

    I don't pay much attention to secessionist thoughts. There's always low level grumbling here, too. "Republic of Vermont 1777-1791" license plates were popular for a while.

    Lotta posturing going on...

    Up here in Buffalo, we get frozen solid every year and no blackouts or nothin. NatGas all winter long. Because REGULATION. By the public utilities commission.

    I would love it if Texas leaves the Union, because NY pays 30% more in taxes to the Feds than it gets back. All that money ends up going to Red states, probably to pay for their tax abatements.

    There was no "water situation" until snyders appointed city manager decided to change the source of Flint water without taking proper measures to make sure it was safe. Several thousand people likely got lead poisoning and that wouldn't have happened if snyders guy hadn't tried to save money by switching sources.

    My point is that it is wrong for the State to treat Flint like that. If it were Texas you would not stop talking about it. This is the way you treat your own?
