Two Michigan Stories.
When Ronald Reagan first assumed the Presidency he gave a public address about the economy which I well remember. Impersonator Rich Little later did a variation on it in which he Mr Reagan took a pie (which represented the US economy) apart and shoved into various jars of water, boxes etc, smearing it all over the table and himself and afterwards said "and that is our economy" in which someone said "Mr. President, that's nothing but a mess" to which Little/Reagan replied "Exactly!"
That's Michigan's economy now and it is going to get a lot worse in the near and not-so-near future. Everyone's greed, and I mean everyone including the Executives, Stockholders, customers, workers, retirees, government and management, combined together to kill the goose that laid the golden egg. The only innocents are those who are uninvolved and are victims of the collateral results. Everyone wanted more money without producing more wealth within the industry and it finally reached a breaking point.
Michigan's unemployment rate will probably reach 20%. The seeds for this destruction were laid in the 1950s when everyone saw the Auto Industry as a source of unlimited wealth where everyone from the CEO to the Shareholder to the line worker to the janitor to the Tax man could find a bounty of cash. The limit has been reached and the bubble has burst. The management, the stockholders, the unions and the tax collectors must all share in this guilt because they all did it.
Central Michigan University
A former CMU women's basketball player is suing her former coach for revoking her scholarship. Why? The lawsuit says it was because she was straight. Now I don't know all the facts and this could be nonsense, but it could also be exactly what happened.
"She was not only kicked off the team, but her scholarship was taken away because the coach kept telling her that she wasn't her 'type,'" Victor explains. "And when Brooke would ask what was that, [Guevara] would say 'I don't want you to wear makeup, you have a boyfriend, I don't want you to have a boyfriend...you're too girly girl' -- that type of thing."
If that is indeed what was said then she definitely has a case against this woman. The gay community needs to understand something. They are pushing too hard and are getting very nasty and arrogant and there will be a backlash and they won't like it when it happens. Very soon even people who are somewhat friendly to them will say that "enough is enough".
