An interesting blog popped up at the Detroit News Today on May 12, 2008. The title, Make Every Day Mother's Day, was an example for the State of Michigan to Follow. Follow the link to post your own comments at the Detroit News. Below is my comment.
I enjoyed reading the most recent writings of Robert Pederson on the Detroit News. I found that the writing was a great example of focusing on the family. I have also found that this is rare in Michigan. Michigan's economy, families, and infrastructure are disintegrating as a direct result of Michigan's neglect toward the family.
Increasing financial subsidies for split households only encourages more of that which is rewarded. Tailoring programs and Michigan's growing bureaucracies to require parents to work together to raise children either in the same home or separate homes will do wonders for our next generation.
Respecting the family means respecting our spouses, our children, and the role of government in correcting problems instead of treating symptoms that allow for festering wounds that just get more infected. Thanks for taking the time to focus on the family Robert.Lary Holland: Host and Producer of Get Your Justice Live: An interactive talk show that discusses the family court.
I hope the State of Michigan starts to catch on before there is no infrastructure, families, or capital left in this state to invest for a future for our children.
