The potholes on sections of Alpine, Burton, Leonard, and 7th Street are ridiculous! Trying to drive on those streets is an exercise in frustration and a bladder and bone jarring experience. I would not be surprised if I learned that traffic accidents and flat tires statistics were up in Grand Rapids. It is because of the potholes! Please fix them ASAP!

Only 1200 in 45 days seems a bit low should it not be more like 12,000

What's a patriot to do?

It takes money to fix the streets, and the only place to get that is through taxes......

We do pay taxes at least some of us do. The last thing you will hear me complain about is paying taxes to keep OUR roads serviceable its when we pay taxes to fund insane government programs that don't work or support corrupt government agencies or pay for the retirement of millionaire congress people and senators.

That's because you worked and contributed to society your whole life, and don't mind contributing to the condition of our roadways and public facilities like most Americans.

The problem is you're commenting to the never-ending ungrateful whining of a couple elderly liberal tools who contribute nothing to society and merely hoist wrinkled middle fingers to those of of us who carry them around like snotty, outdated anchors.

As long as their Bridge Cards and Govt handouts are in working order the retired whining class have the luxury of typing out pithy one-liners from their sagging armchairs.

Ask the your elected official in the Michigan Legislature stupid.

GOPhers controlled the state house for 16 of the last 23 years, The state senate for 23 of the last 23 years -- that's right A**-hole 23 for 23, and the Governor's office for all but 8 of the last 23 years.

For the 23 year period since 1992 the GOPhers have even had TRIFECTA control (governor, house and senate) for 10 of those years.

STFU bitch boy. Being stupid is no longer an excuse. I'm sick of your whining, complaining and blaming.

Whine, whine, whine. Perhaps if we had an administration that didn't get its news from the AP and actually paid attention to what was happening in the world and country, things would improve. And it is long past time to stop complaining about the Feds not helping the states. The states need to start doing their own part and telling the Feds to back off. Of course, that would mean that the current batch of Governors and Legislators to say nothing of the citizens of this country would read AND understand what the Constitution actually says.

LOL. You just proved once more why no one should take you seriously. Too funny. A name change to pathetic loser would actually be a step up for you .... Keep 'em coming stupid. Maybe you'll at least begin creating a fan club who believes you're "really" a comedian.

Gee, your comprehension skills keep going down hill. Wonder why that is? Perhaps you should try asking Mommy to help you?? What a pathetic little cowardly loser you are.
