Re: How stupid by terrybankert, 12/23/06

Your topic sounds a little Micheal Moore-ish.Why bash the rich people.Most of them have sucessful businesses like yourself.Their the engine of this city not GM.....Merry CHRISTmas

9727.1.1. Point well taken... the post is

just my frustration.
A holiday awarness of the suffering on the east side state streets and mid city Ave A etc..
GM is gone, gravy train jobs for the uneducated and unmotivated are gone.

We have a problem, on occassion I am consumed with our lack of intergovnmental coordination, leadership plans and a lack of true leadership.

I am convinced there is a plan that will work and a leader that understands it, can mobilize the community and can make it work.

So to the Flint Journal it is good our economy can produce millionairs.

And to the millionaires Merry CHRISTmas and a happy prosperous new year.
To the working middle class that has not abandoned Flint hang in there get active we can save our families, occupations and this town.

To those in economic harms way, this is a giving community look around and ask for help, we will be there for you if we can.

Don't wait to follow just lead.

see ya all in the hood

The Flint Journal has a lead article yesterday talking about the Flint Millionaires. Once again the Journal is the dumb young and fulla ___ cheer leader for the business community. Give us hope, those of us staying here while 800 GM Delphi worker just hit the brick, the under 30 crowd has no job prospect, families are starving in mid to north Flint. But yes please make us feel all warm and touchy about all your rich friends.

Pandemic Would Hit Poor the Hardest, New Flu Study Says"--headline, Seattle Times, Dec. 22

More people choosing to skip lawyers--a November 27, 2006 Salt Lake Tribune article that discusses a recent survey of the Utah judiciary on self-representation.


(TV-5) -- Hundreds of workers at GM and Delphi are parting ways. On December 22nd, outgoing Delphi workers in Mid-Michigan gathered to wish each other well on their new lives as retirees.

Some employees have created a unique bond with each other. Hugs, handshakes and one last goodbye, is how many Delphi veterans said farewell to each other. For more than three decades they worked side by side - during the good and not so good times.

Yes, they were co-workers but over the years they became much more than that. Some fell in love and got married. Some became the best of friends. But each of them say they're going to miss the people they worked with.

Together for thirty years, they have become a family and while they won't see each other everyday - like family - they will gather on the holidays to talk about those good old days.
Some of those retirees will stay on the job for a few months training incoming workers on their new jobs.

huh? what was informative? it seemed like a stream of consciousness...bunch of links, story lines with no content what was this supposed to be actually?

ANS; A You Tube dailey under construction. Thank You

The State of Michignan requires every individual to make every effort to retreat be fore using force until you are either in your bedroom, or your place of business.

I bring this up because of a recent event that happened at my home. Three obviously drunk individuals were walking past my home one night. They were hollaring profanities and such. (no big deal)

Then, one of them started harrasing a woman warming up her car. calling her "bitch, hoar, ..." He then started yelling "thats my car!! Get out of my car!! I'll kill you bitch" It was obviously not his car as his freinds laughed as they held him back. They kept telling him to "quit playing." He then turned towards me and yelled "you want some?"

This continued for about 3~4 minutes. e said "I know where you live, I'll kill you and your whole family" This is when I pulled the hammer back on my pistol. I never showed it, or even said a word back to him.

I called the police, and ofcourse they arrived late enough to completly miss the whole thing. The problem I have is, I believe him when he threatens my wife and 4 mo. old son. Yet, I have to wait until he breaks into my house, follows me up the stairs, and into my bedroom. I question weather or not I would let him past the front door. Also, there are other concerns. What could I've done if he attacked the woman?

My bedrooms on the second floor; what if he started a fire on the first? My question is, when should I be allowed to use force against a threat to me and my family?



Larry and John,
Did not catch the date of your year end show?
Would suggest Lee Bell, Franklin Green, Janis Mohhammad(sp), Traci Collier Nix, Ombudsman- Brenda Purifoy. Any person sitting on the current Flint School Board, former runner for Board -Elizander Barzart (sp). Sheriff Pickell, Patrick Ryals, Josh Freeman, Officer Dicks Or Super Milton.

Have NO interest in anything- speak out of both sides of his mouth...Chris Martin has to say!

You could have just said you don't want a quickie from Eric Mayes- king of absentee ballots, dead or alive! I do appreciate the man but hold sacred honesty of the peoples vote.

If you want only Mayorial electee questions why ask for a broader forum? I can get you questions...have a fair panel that I enlist questions from. I also have a file of questions asked at former debates.

Need a bit more guidance in text form on what you envision.

Prior to me asking for attendance from those mentioned. Will email you personally, do not care for phone or audio. Peace, RAP Pardon me for remaining as a guest online.

should have been a signal that excellence in deceit and corruption now rule all aspects of Flint governance.

Watching the Exits Washington is full of politicians who want to keep out terrorists and illegal immigrants, but far fewer who want to commit the time and money to a realistic discussion of how to do that.
