    What's an additional billion or so among friends?

    It's not as if Michigan Taxpayers could spend their own money any better?

    Just something to think about when the subject of the Michigan Supreme Court comes up.

      Actually, what should be thought about is that once again, Schuette is using our tax dollars to selectively posture on a position simply because it's an election year.

      Seriously, what could possibly make Team R look like a bigger bunch of money grubbing whores than having their AG harass SCOMI over the Nerd's Lt. Governerd that co-sponsored the MBT (plus the 22% surcharge) without regard for the Nerd's hero and mentor, RINO Bill's mulitstate tax compact?

      Besides, the Team R dwindling majority already plugged a bulk of that out-of-state corporate hole with this here. Well, hadn't the Nerd increased government spending to $1B per week.

      Frankly, what Team R should be more concerned with is the $10+ billion who already voted with their feet.

      And, as much as I detest Mr. Shields, this is truth:

      “If the governor and the Legislature believe this is not the outcome they want, they can change things through the law,” he said. “This will show the fact we’ve got a nonpartisan court here.”

      Yep. Chief Justice Young should hang his head in shame.
