    Newt Gingrich says Michigan, U.S. must create work ethic comparable to China's | freep.com | Detroit Free Press

    MACKINAC ISLAND -- Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich ignited the Mackinac Policy Conference today with a call for big, bold and even unusual steps to turn Michigan's economy around.

    Like making Detroit a federal tax free zone, similar to Pureto Rico, to attract new investments.

    And making Michigan a right to work state, or at least for public employees, including teachers.

    And requiring those receiving unemployment benefits to work or go to school, as is required from welfare recipients.

    hmm. maybe we need nets around our business centers for jumpers, and have the employees sign a agreement not to kill themselves, like china does.

    Here's a hammer, pick and a can of dog food, Newt. You and your current mistress can start with that pile of rocks over there.

    I used to like Newt. This praise for Chinese communism is the latest fad among all politicians. Since when should we ever measure ourselves against them?
