The weekend before last, there were 16 shootings in Detroit over a 72 hour period. 9 deaths from those shootings.


On October 1st, all able-bodied welfare recipients who have been receiving benefits for over 48 months will be cut off the rolls. If there were jobs for them, I wouldn't be worried. But there aren't.

hey, if Granholm hadn't fucked this state up so bad during her 8 years, Synder wouldn't have to had dealt that sharply with them. besides, it needed to be done. Though they wont be losing their SNAP benefits.
