    They probably want to build facilities to divert water from the Detroit River (and the Great Lakes that feed it) to sell elsewhere.

    One of Ohio's GOP representatives has gotten in on the game, introducing a bill to expand the amount of water that can be drawn from the lakes for commercial sale.

    Water exporting has become a very big issue, with big demand from Asia and many southern and western states.

    Methinks this is why the Goopers want Belle Isle.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

      ...not doing anything useful.

      If a tree falls in the forest and there's nobody there to sell it, did it ever really matter in the first place?

      Ideology is when you have the answers before you know the questions.
      It is what grows into empty spaces where intelligence has died.
