The real answer is decent education, comparable to what they get in Bloomfield Hills, good-payingRead More jobs, a minimum wage that reflects what people SHOULD be getting paid by now (at LEAST $15/hour, but actually $20/hour) to match the obscene heights of pay to that which CEO's have unfairly risen, and finally, and most just and important, the people who control all the power, money, and jobs make reparations for the racist White flight that took all of the above from Detroit and then smugly blamed for the mess they willfully created, those they left behind with nothing.

Unions have so much to offer that they demand and politicians accept mandatory union membership.
A different Paul July 25, 2014 at 12:23 pm
Unions vary a great deal- some are better than others. I've been a union member in a previous workRead More incarnation- had some mixed experiences with regard to their usefulness. I have friends in another union that sounds pretty amazing and helpful. In general, they can do a lot of good, but as in any human enterprise egos and power sometimes blind unions to thinking they are the main event rather than a facilitator to helping workers get fair rates for good service. It is too easy to say unions are all good or all bad, and politicians are all good or all bad. There are good ones, bad ones and a lot of gray area in between. The difficult part is wading through that gray area and seeing both points of view and weighing their merits for the larger good.
Dale Behler July 25, 2014 at 01:14 pm
Unions were useful and necessary back in the day when employers abused their authority over theirRead More employees. But the pendulum has swung too far in the other direction in recent years. It is a fact that our leftwing government has pushed the union agenda at the expense of other Americans. If left to their methods unopposed, the Democrats would push unionization down our throats as a requirement because the unions contribute millions to their election campaigns and other left wing activities. The unions are active left-biased political entities which are unfortunately still allowed to remain tax exempt under the IRS Tax Code. The portion of a member dues which are deemed to go to support a union preferred political party should not be deductible on their tax returns just as PAC donations are not deductible by any other taxpayer.

A white-nosed coati similar to the one pictured above was euthanized so it could be tested for rabies after biting a Warren resident who tried to corral the animal after it escaped from a neighbor’s garage. (Photo: @NamdurApi via Flickr)
Gayle ONeal July 17, 2014 at 07:07 pm
There ARE other methods to test an animal for Rabies: Rabies Diagnosis in Animals: Based on routineRead More public health surveillance and pathogenesis studies, we have learned that it is not necessary to euthanize and test all animals that bite or otherwise potentially expose a person to rabies. For animals with a low probability of rabies such as dogs, cats, and ferrets, observation periods (10 days) may be appropriate to rule out the risk of potential human rabies exposure. Consultation with a local or state health official following a potential exposure can help determine the best course of action based on current public health recommendations. BioPro Rabies ELISA Ab kit was developed and validated for detection of rabies antibodies in domesticated and wild carnivores. In comparison to “golden standard” methods like FAVN or RFFIT the use of BioPro RABIES ELISA Ab kit is much easier, rapid and convenient. Tests that do not require euthanasia can be used to examine serum, spinal fluid, and saliva, but none of them can rule out rabies with 100 percent certainty. These tests are used only in humans and animals that cannot be euthanized.

Our Local Problem is that those people shoot off Fireworks on days and nights that are not coveredRead More by the law, shoot 2 to 4 bombs and run inside and do not answer the door with the lights off in the place they live. They are not Dumb, they know they are breaking the Law, that makes it extra fun for them. Our State Senator J.

Nor can our local Orion Township can not say they make from the tents and walled fireworks outlets for Orion Township. I am a Conserative and want to know what these sales that bring me back to Vietnam, sleepless nights waitinf for the next 3" Bomb to go off. Not to mention my rescue dogs wanting to crawl under our bed and whine and shake all night long. We have a Great Sheriffs Department, they try very hard to stop the steelers of peoples sleep, but they shoot and run. It is sad the our State Representives Marleau and our House Rep. voted for the Fireworks Law and changes without ever talking to the Individuals that are now suffering from this Law. REMEMBER they are both up for re-election. Sleeplessly Yours, Dave Duenow of Orion Township.
