Jonathan, if you actually look at the historical record, businesses have done better (as a whole) under Democrats than they have under Republicans. In fact, as odd as it sounds, higher taxes actually have contributed more positively to the economic fortunes of both companies AND their employees. Not opinion, just… Read more
I am sure there were businesses that held back for business reasons. Housing certainly has not rebounded in Michigan as it has in other parts of the country. What type of business is your family business and what industry it revolves around? Read more

Phantasmagoria isn't even listed as a controversial video game. The ESRB (1994) had already been established and in effect by the time… Read more
Wow, between Milwaukee and Grand Rapids? Didn't realize the Lake Express went up the Grand River.
How, may I ask, is there any more work to troubleshoot an Xbox 360 that is a part of the payment plan, than one that is not? The only additional work might be in dealing with the account, but my guess is that takes all of five minutes to work out.
Kudos to VanguardRose for being the only person to TM Kevin Butler/Jerry Lambert.
