    Isn't Jackson, MI the place where the republican party was founded? I think there's a historical marker there.


    Now, Jackson is the home of the largest of Michigan's prison complexes.

    Where was the party born? Following the publication of the "Appeal of Independent Democrats" in major newspapers, spontaneous demonstrations occurred. In early 1854, the first proto-Republican Party meeting took place in Ripon, Wisconsin. On June 6, 1854 on the outskirts of Jackson, Michigan upwards of 10,000 people turned out for a mass meeting "Under the Oaks." This led to the first organizing convention in Pittsburgh on February 22, 1856.

    I remember when aliens only did crop circles. They've come a long way in their communication skills.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
