Districts get redrawn, usually by the party in control of the legislature. Yes, eventually it might because very difficult (or impossible) to gerrymander enough districts for them to keep control but for now, the state is losing population and usually from blue areas (Detroit, Flint, etc) not Red areas (everywhere else including Grand Rapids).

Ya, agreed. Gerymandering has pretty significant effects, doesn't it? The presidential and senate elections aren't affected by gerrymandering, but the federal congress and the state legislature are heavily affected by it. I didn't say the majority of the state are (or vote for) Republicans, I said the Republicans control the state. There is a distinct difference.

Republicans believe in states rights, which means minimal federal government. They do NOT believe in "minimal government" as you called it. Republicans in state positions are VERY heavy-handed.

And yes, Republicans control Michigan which is not likely to change anytime soon. That said, even if they didn't, auto mfg is the big industry here and most politicians R or D are not likely to do anything that would harm that industry, especially right now after they have just recently "recovered."

From what I've read, HBO is considering offering its service as an add-on for you ISP (who is often-times also your cable company). So, while this is slightly better, it's actually bad news because it's entirely possible and probable that ISPs will start bundling gold and platinum packages with HBO, Netflix, Hulu, whatever.

I don't know, I guess I could just see this going really badly even though it sounds like a good thing at the moment.

The parent to my post said

I thought that applied only to small companies that were indistinguishable from their owners and their families

which does not make any distinction about a business being privately owned. So, I don't see why you would make that distinction in this context.
