Tim Skubick writes that the Republican-Controlled senate leadership has told Sen. Green to "back off" on legislation that changes anything in regards to Michigan's "Criminal Empowerment Zones".

First of all Tim is an idiot... So don't hold your breath that synthesis ng he writes is close to accurate.

An astute observation. My take on him has always been he's a fawning sycophant eager to slurp at the backsides of those in Lansing. :rolleyes:

True... to some extent. He does, however, provide quotes in the article. I guess it remains to be seen what transpires over the remainder of the legislative session. If the recent past is any indication, he may be correct.

I've not heard that Green has been told to back off. I've only heard things to the contrary.

That quote wasn't from Green.

Does anyone have a link to the whole article?

I wish I could have posted the whole article but fair-use provisions start to get cloudy at that point. I've been unable to find a link that has the article on-line.

IF he has been told to "back off"... or not... I guess the proof will be in what happens from now until the end of the legislative session. Like I stated above, up to this point not much has been done considering that the Republicans control both the state house and senate and hold the governorship. I will be pleasantly surprised if this changes in the near future.

This from an inside, trustable source:

Skubick was using Sen. Green’s quotes out of context and to editorialize. Senate leadership actually encouraged Mike to reintroduce comprehensive CPL reform after SB 59 was vetoed.

Well, I'm shocked- SHOCKED, I tell you! I can't believe the media would quote someone out of context to support their spin on the 'news'.

I also have heard politicians claiming their quote was taken out of context...when it wasn't. Time will tell...

I'll believe this source over a liberal media goon that half of the people here said wasn't trustable -- even before I said a word.

Always think when I hear inside source what it means is someone who shouldn't be saying anything or doesn't have the guts to put their name to it.

And some people are overly sensitive.
Nope, again wrong. I am not over sensitive, merely highly allergic to BS. This site is given information, as can be released, and you dispute it's authenticity, and then cry out that no one is giving any information. You are willing to believe some hack reporter that couldn't accurately report the weather after looking out the window over people who are involved in the process. First you are upset that they are not releasing more information, and when they do, you question it's validity.

Well I wasn't referring to you, but hey if you think it was about you who am I to go against that?
Some people just like being malcontent and wanna be rebels, and want others to join them.
