  •  The Biggest Cost to Michigan (6+ / 0-)

    in the long run is that anyone with an IQ over 115 who can get the hell out of Michigan is getting out as fast as they can.  Ohio is enjoying the same benefit.  The outward flow from Ohio is barely started but it's finally becoming easy to spot.

    •  Did you miss Tricky Ricky's memo? (5+ / 0-)

      They are trying to attract young people and young families by raising college tuitions, cutting funding to K-12, and prosecuting medical pot users like they are public enemy number one.  MI Senate bill #593 wants to address the shortage in the pension fund (that they created) by changing from a defined benefit plan to a defined contribution plan starting with all those that retired after 1996.  Contract?  Vested?  Retired?   These are the pesky details that don't matter unless your a business.  Then those @ssh0les can't give them enough.  

      Leaving MI and OH isn't good enough.  Time to leave the country, but unfortunately, globalization has made the whole planet uncivilized.   I can't believe these jerks have another whole year in office to destroy our state.  

      Yes we can, but he won't. Banks Got Bailed Out. We Got Sold Out!
