    Sorry, he's talking a lot.... (none / 0) (#2)

    ...but not really saying anything.

    "It would be prudent for the governor to take a hard look at the root causes of the bloodshed."


    "So it's not a failure of law enforcement that violence prevails, but the result of a complete social breakdown the likes of which government has no clue how to repair."

    If sounds to me like another call to expand government yet again (this time under the guise of "fact-finding"), to address the problem that government itself directly created.

    Look, it's not only time for the government to get out of something that is has absolute no business involving itself with in the first place (read: coerced charity), but also for an industrial-sized helping of some tough love to boot.

    • Announce a phase out on ALL state government "assistance" in one year.

    • "Grandfather" those still under the four-year welfare limit, but ban all new applications.

    • Initiate mandatory random drug and alcohol testing for welfare recipients. Positive results will result in an immediate loss of all benefits and parental rights if applicable.

    • Require mandatory job searching classes at MichiganWorks! Offices (i.e. searching through want ads, resume writing, job interview skills). Failure of successful completion will result in an immediate loss of all benefits.

    • Dial back UI benefits from 99-weeks, to 52-weeks and then back to 26-weeks.

    • Require those on receiving any state aid to perform at least 20-hours/week of community service as a condition of receiving benefits. Failure to do so will result in an immediate loss of all benefits.

    • Also, require those on any state aid to either have at least a H.S. Diploma or GED, or get one within two years.

    On the other end of the scale, make prison pay for itself (or at least defray the cost of maintaining it).

    • Institute chain gangs for Level 1 inmates. We can have the cleanest roads and parks in the nation when we put than many people out there to pick up trash and maintain landscape.

    • Promote prison industry. Hire them out to do something, anything, to offset the cost of their incarceration.

    • Contact the Maracopa County Sheriff's Department and request a copy of everything they have implemented and apply everything that is applicable here in Michigan. If Eric Holder hates their guts, then you know they are doing something right.

    There, fact-finding done!

    Look, democratic/progressive policies destroyed these cities in about a generation. Fortunately, it will take a lot less time to at least get them back on track.
