Tom Barrow will protect our precious jewels Oh this again. Seems that Joann Watson was unsuccessful in securing stimulus funds for the Cobo Hall expansion but, have no fear, reality remains unable to penetrate the thick skulls of Detroit’s unemployable activist class. Now they want…wait for it…bailout out money for Cobo. And the anti-Cobo’s have a new ally, perennial mayoral candidate Tom... Read more→

No wonder no one has any time to govern As expected, Sam Riddle was indicted yesterday. So was Mary Waters. Remember when she was supposed to be a huge improvement over Carolyn Cheeks-Kilpatrick just like Cheeks-Kilpatrick was a huge improvement over Barbara-Rose Collins? Don’t blame me, I voted Martha Scott. Riddle, Waters, and Monica Conyers (and probably every other lady politician Riddle ever... Read more→

Macomb County: Barack Obama one of the good ones Once everyone learned that Barack Obama didn’t take a federally mandated bus to Macomb Community College, everyone was happy to listen to Obama talk about higher education and shit. Oh sure there were a few protesters who really want to see the President’s birth certificate but otherwise it was pretty low key. The Macomb Daily didn’t even bother... Read more→

Michigan is even broker than before Potholes really aren’t that bad. Maybe we can get used to them. And textbooks that were good enough for the Class of 1993 should be good enough for the Class of 2010. It’s not like math changes. An old-fashioned educational film strip can be both entertaining and informative. In other words, the state budget deficit is several million dollars larger than expected... Read more→

It took Quicken two years to do this? Hey everybody, Quicken Loans is moving downtown! Detroit is saved! It’s going to be pretty awesome when they start construction on their new office tower and brings like 75 other companies with them. They aren’t doing that? Well, once they get the Lafayette Building rehabbed because that was the back-up…no? So what you are saying is the retards in charge... Read more→

Rochelle was on vacation when those kids killed in the train crash. Naturally, Rochelle thought it was her kids and that ruined her vacation.

Otis Mathis loves recycling! Otis always runs for something and these signs can get expensive. Last time, he actually won a seat on the School Board. Otis must want an office with a salary because he’s running for Council. Based on the partisan citation, we assume these signs are left over from his historic run for state representative in 2004. Remember? When Otis heroically bested the political... Read more→

Dumb voters want big government, low taxes, and probably that fat chick reality dating show You people are freaking stupid. A poll says Michigan voters want lots of fancy paved roads, wonderful schools, and police walking the beat on every block. They also don’t want to pay taxes. Instead, you mental adolescents want the state to cut back on “expenses” and “employees.” For instance, reduce... Read more→

Convicted felon Monica Conyers still has her fancy tv show on WHPR and it’s still called Ask The Councilwoman. We know this thanks to the intrepid reporting of Nancy Kaffer. Also, Monica wants you to teach your kids not to drink liquor. Ironical and shit considering Monica’s first public act after her election to Council was to…wait for it…get into a bar fight. There’s not much else we... Read more→
