    This will Hit 2.00 In A Few Months

    All shorts will become longs or be crushed. Ford is selling cars & the Michigan economy has hit bottom & will start to uptick.

    • LOL.............

    • Costa, had to change my settings just to read your posts, thought everyone here was talking to themselves! 5 stars for you man, people are ridic...

    • This time around it will be pretty much whatever is there and good eating, on the coasts things like snapper and flounder and some shrimping and crabbing, fly fishing out West in the mountains, in Michigan I want to go for walleye as I hear they are good eating, and things like catfish, crappie and bass in the South.

    • I hear ya. I used to ride my bike on the bluffs. Took a tumble or two there.

    • Was out there from 78'to 91' Miss the ocean and the mountains but not the hoardes of people. Used to hunt Quail in the foothills that are now covered with homes. What a shame they call progress

    • I agree Kabby. Low cost of living should attract business. Though the leadership in Lansing will have to change. What kind of fishing do you enjoy ?

    • Well I tend to agree about the unions, what they did to F and GM was really bad, though senior management at GM bears a lot of the blame too.

      But what I do see is that the cost of living in Michigan is still reasonable, which is a plus for any businesses that want to move there. With the auto industry improving some, and some new areas like maybe microwind or midscale wind, NGVs for fleet cars which could be made in side factories of existing plants, and whatever else comes out of a new economy this time, they may be postioned well so long as the unions don´t get too greedy and as long as they don´t meddle with management decisions. The latter really got them over at GM, it took them days and unions saying they needed three workers just to fix a simple machine on the line, the unions had gotten to meddling so bad over there.

      There are still good steal workers there, once they figure out how to clean up any legacy mess some of those empty factories might be filled again with different things.

      Hey, I am taking a long trip and after looking into it I plan on visiting the state and doing some fishing and the like, outside of Detroit and a few other blighted cities it sounds like a nice place to visit or live, and even Detroit might end up turning the worst of the abandoned areas back to farms.

      Hey, I like California too and will be visiting there too, but that RE bubble they had makes me very wary of investing in any banks there.

    • I have a business in CA but spend little time there. I have homes in northern and Se Michigan. CA is as bad as MICH if not worse. Unions are killing them both...........

    • That's right.
