It’s no secret that the housing market in Detroit has hit rock bottom. Anyone selling property there is in serious trouble because nobody wants to buy. The city’s economy is bad and the crime problem is worse, and the elected officials are woefully incompetent.
Want proof? Sure. There’s a plan by Michigan Democrats to buy an “MP3 player” for every child going to school in Michigan. Why, you ask? “To assist education.” How is a student in my classroom rocking out to Ludacris on an MP3 player instead of participating in lecture going to assist that?
Insanity? The Detroit Free Press seems to think so. Will it turn the state Republican? Unlikely, and not like that would really help matters. Michigan needs to put all elected officials out on their ear and start over.
