I don't live in Michigan...in fact I don't really live anywhere.
However, as a former resident of Michigan, and as a resident of
the United States (Where I DO pay taxes), I feel I have a right to
voice my opinion regarding something. I was watching one of
those Sunday morning politics shows this morning and the
Governor of Michigan, Jennifer Granholm was boo-hoo-ing
about how Michigan is losing X amount of jobs, is "hurting" and
how bad things are. What is the president (whover that is going
to be) going to do about it?
Well you know...the same thing was being said when I lived there
20 years ago and were being said 10 years before that. This same
thing being said to many presidents from both parties. Well, Governor
Granholm...get off your butt and do something about it yourself!
YOU ARE THE GOVERNOR! It's too darn easy to blame someone
else isn't it? Quit complaining and do something...anything. The
Big 3 automakers have been sucking money out of the state for
years...Detroit is electing corrupt politicians for years...DO
SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Quit blaming whoever was and is to become
president. This isn't going to change whether McCain or Obama is
elected. Governor Granholm...do something.
I'm sure this argument could be made in some shape or form for
any of the 50 States...even D.C. (Marion Berry got re-elected after
being busted on camera???). However, I saw this on television and
I used to live in Michigan so it struck a nerve. Quit your bitching
and get off your butts and do something...the complaining gets old
after a while and as a American citizen, I really don't want my tax
money being spent to help out someone who doesn't want to help
