I have a great idea! Build a big Roman like Colosseum in Flint, and all the other places in the country with tons of violence......Round up all the people/gangs who want to kill one another, and just let them go at it in front of thousands of paying customers! A great event would be like a demolition derby, but they try to take each other out not by smashing each other...but by driving around shooting each other. I think it would be great!

I am going to have to give you props? I find myself in agreement with much of what you say. There are many truths because there are few absolutes. I personally view conservatism and liberalism as "tools", like a hammer and a screw driver. What tool you use depends on the job or situation of what needs fixing. I do not subcribe to the notion that big government is always best or that limited government is always best. It depends on the era and what is needed and the wisdom of the tactics and strategies. Its kind of like debt. There is debt taken for consumption and there is debt taken for investment. One cannot always say that debt is good or debt is bad....because it all depends on the situation.
Thanks for the compliment! I'm starting to think we aren't that far apart in our views. While I do believe that limited government is the best way overall, we will probably be at our best when there is a combination of different policies (the trick being to find the right balance... I personally think we're skewed too far towards big government). And when I think about it, I don't think I have that much in common with the views of the average Republican voter. I get offended when people stereotype white conservatives, but my that's probably because my views don't fit the stereotype. It doesn't mean that the stereotype doesn't exist.

Reported to today. 16 year old is shot and killed after attempting to break into a woman's home. She warned him she was armed. He didn't listen.

I visited Flint last year. I am originally from Poland but honestly, there is no uglier place in all Poland than Flint.... I doubt I'd live there if they paid me to do so...

i heard that you have to either kill a person or shoot them and keep them in your home (tie them up?) in order for it to be 'legal'. if they broke in, that is. seems like alot of my clients who live near flint/flushing have guns.

I was BORN and RAISED in Flint, Michigan. I have been gone since 1998. Yes everything they say about Flint is true. The crime rate is high, the unemployment rate is high, most of the residents in and the surrounding areas stay HIGH, but if you as a person stay LOW on your knees and in the presence of GOD none of these things in FLINT or anywhere else for that matter shall harm you! And God WILL supply ALL of your needs according to HIS riches in Glory IF you walk right before Him! I may have to go back to Flint to live for 2 years to get my Master's degree, and I am going with the attitude to CHANGE the ATMOSPHERE around me!!!!! The devil IS a liar and everywhere MY foot treads there will be PEACE even in Flint, Michigan.......BE BLESSED!!!!
