  1. I just can’t deal with people like you. It’s like dealing with a Jr. High kid..go take your nap… I’m out

    What are you 12 maybe 13. Grow up. I make some comments expanding on your post and you come back with my Dad thinking I’m an idiot. What the hell’s wrong with you. What a jerk.

    Apparently you haven’t been keeping up with current events in Detroit. Or, is it maybe, just maybe. Fox News doesn’t like to endanger its Story Telling Crew’s. The City Manager, is a Republican appointee of the States Governor too run the City of Detroit. The Mayor of Detroit, does not control the City in anyway, shape and/or form. The Republican Governor’s Appointed City Manager does. And between the both of them (e.i. Michigan Republican Governor and Republican City Manager of Detroit), their NOT put money INTO the city. BUT, ACTUALLY taking it OUT. It’s a Michigan State Governor’s Controlled Reverse PONZI Scheme.

  4. Living in Minnesota, a liberal breeding ground, I find it hard to believe that a judge would have the common sense to rule properly on CCW in a football stadium. Small victory. In this state every other building has a sign banning guns. The NFL needs to think… A sports stadium is the perfect place for a bad guy/terrorist. People are seated, exits are bottle-necks and he has 50,000 random targets. However lets not allow good guys to carry in the stadium.

  5. Detroit Police Tell Citizens to Arm Themselves ….
    I would really like to see one of the gun grabbers debate Chief Craig’s logic. Give me an honest and logical reasons why the Chief is wrong. And, If it is not wrong for Detroit how can it be wrong anywhere. I do not understand why people feel they can depend on the police for protection. The police simply cannot get to a scene in time to stop a crime most of the time if ever.

  6. I heard so many variations of the Red Jacket Cable series. That’s probably why everybody were going in so many different direction, I actually thought there going to be Sin-Off’s of the series. This is really going to destroy his business and his daughter’s affiliation with him. You think you no somebody , and then this happens. Go, figure.
