Yogi's words make a lot of QE2 and Porkulus spending sense. And, the Looter City rejoices with 40% of what the other Looter Cities are handed from Lansing, via The Detroit News
The mayor is welcoming word that the state plans to dedicate $25 million toward blight elimination efforts across Michigan, including $10 million in the city.
Yup. Another $97.2M crock of theft by our 2010 Majority. $20M for "counseling"? WTF?!?!
The Hollow Men strike again...

This Wednesday refocuses our attention on House watching, looking for signs of Bolger and company rolling over for Gov Snydholm wanting his Exchange.
"There's a push, obviously, to set up an exchange There is a separate push - if we don't set one up - that we start some of the planning process," Adler said. "And then there is a lot of pressure to delay things a little longer. We are receiving a lot of feedback with a lot of different ideas."
Tread cautiously on that, Lansing GOP .. your vote could very well result in your own Stupak moment.
Mr Bolger, with regard to the new health care exchange, listen to the next Governor.
"I think it would be wiser for our policy leaders in this state to wait until November, that's the final decision break point on this healthcare debate."
In other words, take your time.
And a side note on the question of WHOM is to be running the exchange? Name three or four of the current governor's best friends, and you will be pretty close. If they are not currently, then they are soon-to-be, as it will involve vast amounts of money.
Let me remind the house leaders of testimoney they heard earlier this year (Below the fold)
