  1. Michigan is in such financial disarray that the court system adopted a “Republican” idea of judicial activism, meaning that the plain language of laws enacted by the Legislature, no matter how “little people” friendly, was interpreted to favor Big Business. The Michigan courts pretended that such judicial activism and bias would bring businesses and jobs back to the State. This didn’t happen. Instead, the rich got richer and the poor got poorer, and more angry.

    Finally, for a fleeting moment, the Michigan Court of Appeals is exercising the same reading comprehension level as fifth graders. (Play on the game show “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?) It took courage to not keep giving in to the insatiable spoiled brats that keep wanting more and more, no matter how much the cities and State are decimated. Now homeowners who were robbed by MERS have a victory. The next step is Oakland County.

    Voice of Detroit, an independent newspaper, recently published a story about a lawsuit that alleges that sheriff deeds from Oakland County may be invalid due to the Sheriff Mike Bouchard’s participation in a RICO pay-to-play scheme. See http://voiceofdetroit.net/?p=7043. Preventing Foreclosure then published a response that calculated how just one deputy, Attorney Thomas Rabette, can have an economic impact of over $1 billion if the sheriff deeds he signed were invalid due to RICO. See http://preventingforeclosure.wordpress.com/2011/05/06/eviction-by-any-means-necessary-including-by-invalid-sheriff-deeds/ .

    Let’s see if the Michigan federal court will put a stop to Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard’s pay-to-play, the same that it did to former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s corruption.
