This is what we’ve devolved to huh? If Michigan were to capitulate on this it would be appropriate to insist on no state money for the school (might be a problem for Michigan) including student loans. And perhaps alumni who do not agree with segregation should consider joining the #AlumniStrike too.
We at ACC are non partisan and will never endorse any candidate for any office, ever. Just to state again.
Michael Moore’s analysis is interesting as it jibes with at least some of our thoughts. One of the reasons Trump is not well regarded by many within the GOP is because he is seen as a big government guy and a potential president who might start going tariff happy once taking up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The situation in Flint is just nasty in pretty much every way. People have likely been poisoned. The EPA knew about the contamination months before telling the public, all the while people continued to drink the water. And now this.
At least it’s warm in Puerto Rico.
4 years ago we argued that Detroit ought to just declare itself a “free zone.” Cut taxes to nothing. Make the city a business friendly place in stark contrast to what it was before. The former metropolis literally has nothing to lose. Big government failed (as it always does eventually), let free enterprise come in and maybe there is a chance for something like a renaissance. A chance. (Which is more than the place has now.)
We knew of course that our calls would likely not be headed,
GM will always be GOVERNMENT MOTORS to me. Where’s our $10 billion? GM is a crony company through and through. Truly a boondoggle of massive proportions.
Now that is an excellent question. I can tell you the answer, but it’s still an excellent question.
I am sure Ms. Clinton will be focusing on the fact that the EPA knew that there was lead in Flint’s water for 1 full YEAR without making the information public. I’m am also sure she’ll be calling for massive reforms at the agency and exploring fully how it could be that the federal government allowed thousands to be poisoned. Almost positive that will be her area of attention.
I am not an attorney but I don’t see where this guy did anything wrong. He appears to be well within his rights as a US citizen.
Jury nullification is an important tool which allows members of a jury to vote their conscience even if the person on trial is in violation of the law. A juror can “nullify” an individual law in an individual case.
Prosecutors don’t want people to know about this tool of course but it looks like arresting this former pastor may have backfired on the judge who ordered the arrest.
Now here’s an idea. Don’t rope unwilling workers into your union, make the case to them.
Tesla shocking the marketplace.
Crony capitalism is deep in the DNA of both major parties. Republicans do it. Democrats do it. This is a case in point.
GM is a cronyism vortex. The closer one gets to the company the stronger the crony force is. Taxpayer dollars disappear into it and are gone forever. Common sense too. The free market and genuine innovation? They long ago passed over the event horizon.

A coalition of Michigan sports fans, consumer groups, and free market advocates are locked in a battle over the right to resell tickets. Michigan is one of the few states that still prohibits consumers from reselling their tickets on the secondary market for more than face value, without the venue’s permission.
In addition to representing a gross interference by the government in the free market, the 83 year old law has enabled big ticket companies like Ticketmaster and StubHub to create a state-sanctioned monopoly on reselling tickets for more than face value.
This week Senator Rand Paul, who is likely running for president, suggested that Congress act to pass legislation which would declare Detroit an economic “freedom zone.” That is to lower taxes in Detroit to near 0% levels spurring business activity and development.
We at Against Crony Capitalism wholeheartedly agree with this idea. We even called for something similar last year. Unleash the market in Detroit and the city will bloom.
Few cities have been as ravaged by inept governing and crony capitalism as Detroit has.
We couldn’t be more for this. In fact, last year we suggested a very similar idea. We said:
Sure does. The unions should know better.
And they say unions sometimes act like the mafia.
