LANSING, Mich. -- A new federal report says Michigan's economy has continued its steady recovery from the Great Recession, growing 2 percent in 2013 and staging a faster comeback than the nation as a whole over a four-year span.

I think this book might be a Bestseller. I'm looking forward to reading it! I didn't know the Asians are the fastest growing minority population in the Country.
In Michigan, where the SEIU had dues deducted directly from Medicare checks sent to people cared for in their homes by loved ones, the practice ended when lawmakers passed legislation in 2012 making it a right-to-work state. Membership among those previously classified as home health workers plunged by 80 percent by some estimates, but the SEIU kept people previously classified as union members on its rolls unless they affirmatively opted out during a one-month annual period.
After initial success in cutting federal spending and reducing deficits, House Republicans have drifted into the red with a series of tax measures and spending bills that are not offset — either adding to the pile of debt or hiding the costs with accounting gimmicks.
More than a dozen bills with costs that are not fully offset elsewhere in the budget have passed the Republican-controlled House and threaten to add nearly $1 trillion to federal debt over the next decade.
Next time you hear about young American soldiers dying overseas to protect our freedom, remember that for many corporate bastards that means the freedom to lay claim to another country as their headquarters in order to duck taxes. Remember that people like Mikey are defending businessmen who have no allegiance to this country and consider the U.S. only as a lucrative market. In the meantime, reconsider doing business at Walgreens and CVS.
House Republicans Propose 34 Percent Cut To EPA Funding, Restrictions on Rulemaking

"The House proposal includes severe cuts to the clean water and drinking water state revolving funds, which provide capital for water infrastructure projects.
Of course, first they have to breach the English Channel. I'm glad we have barriers such as the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and the North Pole.
Here's an example of individual action backing up words, something that I believe Mr. Independent and Fred would agree with. Be nice if it became a trend among the elite salaried types.
Ebola: The US diagnostic test is utterly unreliable. When researchers and doctors are talking about a germ-caused disease, everything depends on the accuracy of the diagnosis. That's where it all starts.
So here is a blockbuster.
The US diagnostic test for Ebola is utterly unreliable.
Using the test to claim a patient has Ebola or doesn't have Ebola is scientific fraud.
Therefore, any pronouncements made by the Centers for Disease Control, where all the US testing is done, are worthless.
He wants to be Governor but for years was unwilling to follow the very laws of the state. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2014/08/04/Fitz_driver_lic... Liberal politicians, you gotta love 'em. http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2014/08/what_we_know_--_and_what...
I only wish that Obama had held a Rose Garden signing ceremony with leaders of both parties by his side.
WATCH FOR PELOSI AT BOTTOM OF SCREEN MARCHING OVER TO THE REPUBLICAN SIDE OF HOUSE TO RANT--SHE DOES IT TWICE. ABSOLUTELY CRAZY!
You gotta love this guy. He calls the Israeli military response "indiscriminate bombing" and Hamas' terrorism campaigns "occasional flare-ups." I think he's due for another visit to his hometown in Pakistan, where the people are tolerant and cherish peace.
Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King reignited the debate Sunday about the Republican-led House considering impeachment proceedings for President Obama, just days after party leaders furiously tried to extinguish such talk.
King suggested on “Fox News Sunday” that the impeachment issue could be reconsidered if Obama again uses his executive powers to delay or defer deportation for illegal immigrants beyond those brought illegally to the United States in past years by their parents.
“I think then we have to start, sit down and take a look at that,” King said.
I hope all the test results will be CAREFULLY checked, and published so we can see for ourselves what is going--and NOT let some political hacks explain it for us! Specially the part where huge tax increases will be needed to keep Toledo healthy!
There are only two possibilities that Marcy Kaptur will ever be voted out of Congress: 1. If a viable Cleveland-area minority runs against her in the primary or 2. If her constituents would get a clue. After reading the comments on local blogs (including some on this site) and social media, she won't have to worry about the second item happening.
The one constant over the last 30 years in the Toledo-area is Marcy Kaptur. She keeps pointing her finger at Republicans--blaming them for the condition of Lake Erie--and her followers are buying it hook, line, and sinker. The ignorance is overwhelming.
Marcy Kaptur is the ranking Democrat on the House of Representatives Energy and Water Subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee. She sits at the table where budgeting decisions are made concerning Federal spending on bodies of water. On her website she brags about her membership on this committee, which she deems "appropriate given that the Ninth District hugs the Lake Erie coastline from Cleveland to Toledo."
