    This was so good, it makes me want to be a Michigander. (Maybe without the weather thing, though, 'cause I already experience that enough one state down.)

    The government and its crooked laws have broke all of the fingers in the state I love! The thumb, is broken, it doesn't even want to be part of the rest of the state. The Top tips are broken because people insist that shooting a spike horned deer is for the meat. The Middle finger is broken because they closed all of the refineries and laid off thousands because of it. The Pinky is broke because Kzoo really is that a Zoo. The Pointer finger is probably the most broke of all. Its the one that points at you. It holds the highway known as I75. Up and down that finger there are cops that want your money, pull you over for every reason they can think of. The road is not a road most times but a Hwy of Holes. It is home to 3 of this countries top 10 Most dangerous cities. It runs straight through the heart of a Great city that once was and now.. Nobody wants to take the responsibility to clean it or the other two ruined city up. Michigan has fixed itself with problems rather than solutions. Schools are closing, crimes are high, and the government is corrupt and not to mention there just aren't any more jobs. Yes, We used to say "Say, Yes to Michigan". Eventually all that will be left is an empty "Pure Michigan".

    Would you believe me if I told you the thing that keeps me from wanting to go back to Michigan is the fact that the roads are a downgrade from driving on cobblestone?  I've got a decade old vehicle with 30 years worth of accumulated rust and suspension issues simply due to the fact that I didn't have a garage to keep it in during the winter.

    If people truly believe in these things, then they need to take a stance against fracking in Michigan so that our state's most precious resource (fresh water) is not tainted and depleted. Now is the time to protect the things that we love.

    I'm very cynical with these sorts of things. But this was very impressive; great allusions (very specific, I might add), good rhythm, wonderful movement.

    .Road Work.

    I was quite disheartened that they did not include the UP. We are a vital part of Michigan. I see they added it later… but man, give us our some respect. We are hard working, hard loving, and live through the harshest weather in the US. We smile and are very friendly we have some of the most beautiful scenic natural beauty the US holds. Please stop forgetting about us… or adding us as an after thought. We are proud to be apart of this great state too. Whew,thank you for listening
