  • Pension Costs Are Crowding Out Public Safety

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 5/15/2016 | James Hohman
    A report from the state House Fiscal Agency shows that there has been a steady decline in the number of police officers in Michigan, falling 15.4 percent from 1990 to 2015. The report does not go into why this is, but here’s one theory: Pension underfunding is crowding out government spending, including hiring decisions. Consider that the state police retirement system now costs between 57 percent and 63 percent of the Michigan State Police’s total payroll. It is not because the benefits are lavish. It is because the state is trying to pay for promises that it made in the...

    Dear protesters, Please, please, PLEASE bring out more and bigger Messican flags at the next protest. PLEASE have more signs that say "Make America Mexico Again". You are helping us more than you realize. Dear Hitlary, Please, please, PLEASE run on an anti-gun platform, I'm begging you. In my opinion, Trump should run GE ads using the "protesters" as proof of his position. He should also run ads highlighting Hitlarys anti-gun stance. If he does that, GAME. OVER.

At least that's the message I heard during one of the strangest conversations I've ever had about race. I was talking about the concept of white privilege -- the belief that being white comes with unearned advantages and everyday perks that its recipients are often unaware of. I asked a white retiree if he believed in the existence of white privilege. He said no, but there was another type of privilege he wanted to talk about: "Black privilege."...

One unhinged lunatic tried to storm the stage at a rally in Dayton, Ohio. He was stopped by Secret Service agents. Heaven only knows what he would’ve done had he gotten a hold of Mr. Trump. To be clear – what happened over the weekend was not just an attack on Mr. Trump. It was an attack on the First Amendment.

Mr. Cruz re-upped criticism of Mr. Trump for recently having rally attendees pledge their support to him, likening it to an action kings and queens demand of their subjects. “It’s also reflected in his treatment of protesters, where anyone who’s a protester is disloyal and must be punished,” Mr. Cruz told reporters...

With many comparisons drawn between the candidacies — and followers — of Sanders and Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, the issue of aggressive political passion has become more heated than at any other point in this election. Tapper preempted a question by noting that he was looking to play devil’s advocate on a point regarding the the differences between Sanders supporters and those of Trump....

Or he will mention how this country has become racially divided under President Obama.
