    "Hazel Juco says she was concerned when she saw discolored water coming from a sink in the girl’s restroom at school. However, she had no idea that she would be suspended because of a picture she took. Juco says she snapped a photo of the water and posted it to her social media pages, hoping that someone would notice and the problem would be fixed. Instead of getting help, she was called to the office."

    "It doesn’t even feel like school," said Hall, a senior at Osborn Evergreen Academy of Design and Alternative Energy. "It makes my stomach hurt just walking into the facility, knowing we're basically getting cheated – really, getting robbed – of education." ..The 133-page complaint says the state of Michigan has disinvested in education in Detroit so much that children lack fundamental access to literacy. Hall, 16, said he has friends who can't read "but it's not because they aren't smart, it's because the state has failed them".

    Ford Motor Co. is the classic example of an all-American company, but now they are better representing what ails the American economy, as they are being forced overseas. As Ford begins plans to build a $1.6 billion auto assembly plant in Mexico for small car production, the company continues to experience the pressure of globalization crushing their American business dreams. Ford was a classic Michigan company, but as Detroit News reported Michael Martinez reports, "It will employ 2,800 at the new Mexican plant by 2020." It is no surprise Ford has to modify their building model in order to compete,...

    The race across the combined battlegrounds is as tight as can be, tied 42 percent to 42 percent.  Clinton was up one point last week, and was up two points back on Labor Day weekend. Voters in these states are still looking for change, while the partisan divide remains particularly deep. Fifty-five percent of battleground voters want to see “big changes” in the nation’s politics and economy in the next few years. Forty-three percent want “some changes” and only 2 percent think things are fine and not in need of much change. Trump leads by a wide margin on being trusted to change Washington: Forty-seven...

    Patriotism is under fire in Western Michigan. The OK Conference, representing 50 schools, has announced a crackdown on fans chanting, “USA” at football games. They are also implementing strict rules on flags and political banners. “Coaches and fans are irate,” said Bill Simonson, the host of a statewide sports radio show. “People are tired of being told what flag to fly or what political side to lean towards.” Mr. Simonson, who hosts “The Huge Show”, was the first to break this insane story.

    A Michigan school district called the historic “Betsy Ross” flag a symbol of hate and profusely apologized after students displayed the flag at a recent high school football game. “To wave a historical version of our flag, that to some symbolizes exclusion and hate, injects hostility and confusion to an event where no one intended to do so,” wrote Forest Hills Public Schools Superintendent Daniel Behm in a letter to parents. The controversy surrounding the 13-star flag erupted on Sept. 9th during a football game between predominantly white Forest Hills Central High School and predominantly black Ottawa Hills High School,...

    Ford Motor Co Chief Executive Officer Mark Fields said on Wednesday that all of the company's small-car production will be leaving U.S. plants and heading to lower-cost Mexico. "We will have migrated all of our small-car production to Mexico and out of the United States," over the next two to three years, Fields told Wall Street analysts at an investor conference hosted by the automaker. Earlier this year, Ford said it would invest $1.6 billion in Mexico for small-car production to start in 2018. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has criticized Ford for moving U.S. jobs to Mexico. Fields has...

Ford CEO Mark Fields confirmed the long-expected move Wednesday during an event for investors and Wall Street analysts.

    This being a presidential election year, much debate remains over who is responsible for the water crisis in Flint, Mich. Democrats point to the Republican governor. Republicans point to long-entrenched Democratic leadership of the city. But although there is debate over who to blame, there is none over what to blame. Everyone agrees the decision to switch from the Detroit water system to drawing its own water from the Flint River was disastrous for the city. Corners were cut, short-term savings were valued over long-term safety, and materials were used that were not capable of keeping the water safe. Now,...

    A new study from professors at Oklahoma State University has found that Republicans and Democrats have never been so far apart on climate issues. "What was once a modest tendency for Congressional Republicans to be less pro-environmental than their Democratic counterparts has become a chasm—with Republicans taking near-unanimous anti-environmental stances on relevant legislation in recent years, especially 2015," the study said. This distance between the parties was further exacerbated by the rise of the Koch-funded Tea Party, which took the hard line of fully dismissing the climate change threat, often making climate change a lightning rod for voters who were...

Those Ipsos state polls show Trump clinching leads in New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Maine. That’s really big because President Barack Obama won all those states in 2012. Obama won Wisconsin by 6.7 points, Michigan by 9.5 points, Maine by 15.1 points, and New Hampshire by 5.8 points.

    Three federal courts have thrown out voter-ID laws in North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin in recent days. Left-wing judges accepted spurious evidence that such laws were racially discriminatory, and they also insisted there is little voter fraud to worry about. Last April, United States District Judge Lynn Adelman of Wisconsin claimed that “virtually no voter impersonation occurs” in Wisconsin and that “no evidence suggests that voter-impersonation fraud will become a problem at any time in the foreseeable future.” Despite such sweeping statements, polls show that the general public is worried about fraud and bureaucratic incompetence in voting. According to a...

    Republican nominee Donald Trump delivered a message of hope to Americans on the campaign trail yesterday in a major economic policy speech that ought to finally make Hillary Clinton's campaign management team break out in a cold sweat. Trump is no Ronald Reagan but some of the Gipper's legendary optimism oozed out of the candidate as he provided details of his "America First" platform that consists so far of ambitious plans for tax reform, regulatory reform, trade policy enforcement and reform, and energy reform. He urged Americans to turn away from the epic continual failures and rampant in-your-face corruption of...

Speaking about growing the economy in big cities by cutting job-killing corporate taxes and renegotiating trade deals, Trump said he would pour jobs back “into ‘titties,’ like right here in Detroit.” While the silly Freudian nip slip is obviously not a big deal—especially relative to Trump-caliber news—it doesn’t make it any less funny Yup, you guessed it, the internet brought on the boob jokes:

    On Monday, Donald Trump took to the stage of the Detroit Economic Club to release his latest plan for jumpstarting the economy, a task that he said “won’t even be that hard.” Among his major proposals is to streamline income tax brackets—of which there are currently seven—to three tiers, in which no American would pay more than 33 percent to the federal government. He promised to cap the corporate tax rate at 15 percent and to put an end to estate taxes. He also suggested halting any new federal regulation on finance, doing away with TPP, and bringing back the...
