What about Right to Work

by: Eric B.

Sun Nov 25, 2012 at 14:42:32 PM EST

The Detroit News has an editorial today advising the Legislature to skip nonsense that doesn't need to be addressed and instead focusing on what needs to be done, like indigent justice and a health care exchange. To their list, I'd add making it harder for homosexuals to adopt children. Children need loving parents of any stripe, and especially more than they need to be cycled through 18 years of "the system." They certainly don't need the people adopting them out to be allowed to discriminate on a potential parent's sexual orientation.

The big matzo ball they left out, of course, was Right to Work. That, I understand, will come up next week in the Senate. The Legislature needs to be focusing on stuff that makes the state better, not an interpretation of this month's election results reached by gross overreach.

Is this really the Detroit News?
Yes on regional transit, defense for poor defendants, and health insurance exchange - and no on cutting income taxes and restricting abortions?

From the News, not the Freep? I had to triple-check which web page I was on.

Now on Great Lakes, Great Times, Great Scott: Cotter vs. Jesus and Reagan

The rest of the editorial staff had Nolan Finley tied up in a broom closet when they wrote this. lol  I mean, that's the only explanation, as the guy is even more unhinged than he used to be.  

Or, perhaps the News is getting back to its actually conservative roots, as opposed to the bullshit neo-conservatism and tea party conservatism they held onto for much of last decade.
