Is Terri Lynn Land a slumlord?

Paul Land was not dead 20 years ago. He was not dead even 12 years ago. Before I married 12 years ago I worked for a charity organization that he helped found. He was still involved in the organization at that time and he was good friends of my immediate supervisor. I am personally not a big fan of his, but lets get the info straight. I had not heard that he died but I don't really keep up with that, it has been 12 years since I worked there. But I do know he was not dead then.  (Jan 24, 2012 | post #42)

What do you think about abortion and Roe v Wade anniversary?

Having been at times a liberal and at other times a conservative, I could not have stated the issue better. I am just so sick of the extremist view. The extreme liberal and the extreme reactionary are two sides of the same coin. They are one and the same and they don't really give d*** about how they are hurting people.  (Jan 28, 2011 | post #58)

Women Seeking Roommate Did Not Break Law

Thank you for posting this. I hadn't heard the outcome of this case. I am glad to hear that there is some sane people in the housing department and they were intelligent enough to dismiss this bogus complaint.  (Nov 8, 2010 | post #2)

Michigan Felon Politician Ban Amendment, Proposal 2

While it is true that many that write cold checks are doing it intentionally, it is also true that the majority of bad checks are written by people who are just really bad and doing the math in their check register. I have a close friend who would not intentionally steal ever but while she is a brunette, she does bleach blond checkbook math. If it wasn't for the 1st National Bank of Mom to bail her out on a regular basis she would be in big trouble. But her intent is clearly not to steal. Whereas someone who shoplifts a $10 item has clear intent to steal. Now if someone makes the habit of bouncing checks all over and never pays the debt, that is a different issue.  (Nov 3, 2010 | post #58)

Gun Control - Grand Rapids, MI

A ban on handguns would mean that only the police and criminals would have them. I don't own guns myself and have never shot a gun in my life. But I feel safer knowing there are other good people out there with training who do own guns and know how to use them. I grew up in a widowed home with a neighbor and his gun looking out for us.  (Nov 3, 2010 | post #110)

Obama's Demoralized Left

People now see the mistake of voting for Obama, but that is not necessarily good news for Republicans. The reality is that most people who used to be on opposite sides of the aisle are seeing that neither the Republican or Democratic parties have the majority of the peoples best interest at heart. Both parties are part of a system that cares very little about the average American. Both parties have betrayed their supporters. And people on both sides are sick of it.  (May 3, 2010 | post #3)

Great Day for America!!

Not so great for Michigan employees. I know personally of a handful of men that will be losing their jobs over this bill. We have a hard enough time paying our own bills and unfortunately, if everything I hear about this bill is true, my husband will no longer be able to afford to help these men.  (Mar 21, 2010 | post #6)

Even more GOP family values

In the same way that the Catholic Church does not necessarily recognize a divorce, the church will never be forced to recognize gay marriage. Marriage and Civil Contracts are not the same thing. They never should have been. Civil Contract are with the state. Marriage is with the church. If one church allows for gay marriage that does not mean that another church has to recognize that marriage. I believe a contract anyone has with the state should be considered civil contracts whether heterosexual or homosexual. The state has no business being involved with a religious institution and never should have been.  (Mar 10, 2010 | post #47)

2/26/2010 - Police say missing Grand Rapids toddler is dead

We don't need it. From what I hear, prisoners tolerate these creeps even less than we do. When he gets locked up, he just may go the way of Jeffrey Dahmer(sp?).  (Mar 1, 2010 | post #2)

Governor to sign Michigan smoking ban into law on Friday

Not all of us non-smokers tip badly or sit pinch faced regarding the bill. Please do not judge all of us by the bad behavior of a few uptight whiners.  (Feb 22, 2010 | post #160)

Governor to sign Michigan smoking ban into law on Friday

A restaurant is a private establishment. I am not a smoker, never have been one. I don't like the smell of cigarette smoke myself. But what makes you so special that you should have more rights than the owner of a restaurant. It is offensive to me that you think you have a right to demand that a restaurant owner wait on you because you choose not to smoke. As a non-smoker I choose to request non-smoking seats. If the non-smoking section is too close to the smoking section and there is still too much smoke for me I ask for a seat change or go to a different restaurant. That is my right. I do not try to foist my rights down the throat of other private tax paying citizens.  (Feb 22, 2010 | post #159)
