From what Snyder said in the past. Canada was suppose to pay for this bridge. Whatever happened to that?

Good Day,
Indeed. Passing Prop 6 could very well be like opening Pandora's box. What, are we supposed to have apublic (Statwide) vote on every infrastructure project? Hmmm...

What is really amazing is that SO many people will be voting on these, and dont really have a clue, or have done any research.
I actually heard someone at work last week say "so, who is running for president this year"

It just amazes me sometimes!
But Hey!.....at least they get to vote!

Good point!
The thing is, is passing proposal 6 isnt going to stop the "bridge".
The owners of the Ambassador Bridge have spent Millions in advertizing, and Millions in order to get propsal 6 on the ballott.
Those folks are worth Billions, and it makes you wonder why they dont want another bridge being built, when they have a monopoly on the crossing.
As for me,.... as far as I'm concerned, I dont give a flying fck about anything east of US-131, as for all I care,.....that's DETROIT!
You might want to look at ALL of the proposals more closely, before you vote.
For all you know, you might be voting for something that you think sounds, good to you, because you have seen the commecial's, but the next thing you know, you will have union dues deducted from your paycheck, without knowing that you yourself voted for it!
Do the research first,.....then vote!

I don't believe energy mandates belong in the State Constitution, but...
Does anyone have the life cycle cost analysis for building the wind power generation capacity versus the building of conventional (in particular "clean coal") generation of equal capacity which would of course include the projected fuel cost? I'm surprised neither side has come forward with the bottom line in defence of their position. It costs money to add the capacity whatever the hardware, the fuel cost is of course nil for the blowing wind and assumed to be constantly escalating for coal and natural gas. Considering all costs (hardware, installation, maintenance, operating costs and scrap value at the end of their usable lives), which is projected to be more economically viable? Add to the equation social costs (pollution, energy security, local jobs, etc) and then determine whether or not it is worth mandating in the State Constitution. My other question is "who is supporting each side of this issue?" Qui bono?

I have been saying this for so long.Those new light bulbs have a PC board, some ceramic capacitors, a resistor, Mercury,and other materials.
That is way above the pollution factor to make those than a regular filament, I don't even thing old bulbs have any plastic or chemicals and completely easily recyclable.

Those lithium batteries, same crap, mining, refining, building and they will not last very long at all to once again got back to recycle and create more pollution than a gasoline car.

Coal plants have a long life and is super far ahead in creating energy with out having to fix or replace and create more, like the generators in those windmills.

It is ALL a big friggen farce, and now I hear the prop 3 is funded by some group in San Fransisco.

Good Day,

If I recall... Canada has offered to "finance" Michigan's portion of the bridge ($550 million I think). This "loan" will be paid back via bridge tolls.

Apparently Sassy has been too "busy" to read the very nice article on MLive the other day by the Canadian representative who was very gracious in pointing out the lies from the one person who stands to "win" if the bridge is not built. The person who is already one of those evil billionaires who owns the Ambassador Bridge and owns shares if not outright, trucking companies. But don't look at the elephant in the corner folks, please.

LoL, just wait till they bring back car exhaust checking (by law)

Then they kill off you peoples wood burning stoves or any burning.

Then they will put digital electric meters on your house and monitor you.(already in the works)

Then force you to purchase only certain furnaces, washers and dryers.

Tax on lighter fluids, and propane.

Force you to pay for recycling, using TWO trash cans that are made of PLASTIC that comes from OIL,

and a whole other pile of CONTROL "LAWS" in the Constitution

We can build the stuff without it being in the constitution, it's only all about control, NOT pollution.

BUT who ever votes yes on this prop 3 crap thanks a hell of a lot speaking as a poor person,you friggen stupid people !!!!!!!!!!
