    On the head.

    If it were YOUR business, monopoly, interest, etc..  What would you do?  What would be YOUR actions if the government came gunning for you and your interest in holding on to a business built both legally and with solid business acumen.  That is the point I have made many times before with regard to Moroun and the DIBC.

    And Henry Payne makes a decent case for it as well a couple days ago, when he points out the hypocrisy of the media that decries Moroun's efforts:

    "Take the Journal. It's the only daily newspaper in the state's capital. What if the governments of Canada, Michigan, and the US ganged up on the LSJ's "monopoly," and decided to publish a government-run newspaper to put the Journal out of business?

    You don't have to endorse Moroun's over-the-top, misleading ads - or his ballot proposal - to know that is exactly what the Canadian government is doing to the Ambassador Bridge Company.

    In a decades-long war with Moroun, the Canadian government has tried repeatedly to put the Michigan mogul out of business, jealous that a private company is making money on "their" international border crossing. What is dumb-founding is that it has found a Michigan governor and American government to ally with them to destroy a profitable, American business."

    And that last point should not be lost in the midst of Snyder's Taxpayer funded 'education' bus tour.

    For years, the legislature has been reticent on taking action on a new bridge for a few reasons.  Not the least of which has been that very last fact.  The question begged by conservative Republican legislators, is "Why would we hurt an American business to give a benefit to the Canadians?  Short term gain as Payne alludes, is certainly ALL we get out of such a thing, and while there was a Democrat governor, resistance was easy for Republicans.

    With the current governor, it suddenly makes it OK? Did Republicans leave their principles at the door when the majority changed?

    Any of you who run a business that YOU BUILT, understand what happens when government grows to a point where they can use your tax dollars to abuse you repeatedly.  Crony short term gains by the actions and wishes of this governor, and his waiting-in-the-wings beneficiaries can all too easily be replaced by the long term losses more closely associated with American business failures due to external forces.

    GOVERNMENT intervention.

    I'm actually surprised that they printed it... (5.00 / 1) (#1)

    ...given that not more than one month earlier, his boss Nolan Finley, took a completely polar opposite position.

    Sadly, another once respected person has all but abandoned his core principles!

    For what? I have absolutely no idea!!!
