Blaire Erskine: Kelly Stafford says she's "so tired of living in a dictatorship"


Kelly Stafford Struggles Living in 'Dictatorship That We Call Michigan'


On Thursday, Kelly Stafford took to social media to vent her frustration over the recent shutdown.

"I'm so over it. I'm over living in a dictatorship that we call Michigan. I understand there's a pandemic. If you are at risk, do not leave your house until there's a vaccine. But, shutting down all these small businesses -- things that people have worked their life for. Shutting them down again is not the answer," Stafford said.

She added, "They will not make it. Once we are able to leave our house, once this dictatorship decides to let us have some freedom, there will be nothing left."


One would think that her history of dealing with a brain tumor would cause her to be more compassionate. You know what the answer is, Princess, give these small business owners and their employees a helping hand from the government. And monitor the program more effectively so that the money goes to where it is really needed. The dumbass also doesn't realize that these business owners and their employees may also be at risk. Go bitch to Mitch, asshole.

89X says goodbye to alt-rock after 30 years, shifts to 'pure country'

Alexa, play “(Good Riddance) Time of Your Life” by Green Day.

It's the end of an era for fans of Windsor-Detroit radio station 89X, who have been pushed one step closer to the edge as the station breaks from its three-decade run as the area's leading alternative rock hub.

A cryptic statement posted on the 89X website on Wednesday revealed that the station would adopt a new format starting Thursday, Nov. 19, and suggested that fans of 88.7 FM will likely have to find a new place to get their “new rock” fix.

“Thirty years is a long time though and it’s time for a change,” the website read. ”Soon there will be a very new and VERY different sound on 88.7FM and to be honest if you're a New Rock fan you're probably not going to like it.”

Well, they were absolutely right. As of noon on Thursday, the station would no longer give airtime to the hard rock sounds of bands like Our Lady Peace, System of a Down, Sevendust, or Linkin Park. Instead, country fans now have yet another place to hang their Cabela's hats and fishin' poles, as 89.9 FM is now "Pure Country," kicking off the station's era with “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line.

Lawsuit: Tyson managers bet money on how many workers would contract COVID-19

A wrongful death lawsuit tied to COVID-19 infections in a Waterloo pork processing plant alleges that during the initial stages the pandemic, Tyson Foods ordered employees to report for work while supervisors privately wagered money on the number of workers who would be sickened by the deadly virus.

Earlier this year, the family of the late Isidro Fernandez sued the meatpacking company, alleging Fernandez was exposed to the coronavirus at the Waterloo plant where he worked. The lawsuit alleges Tyson Foods is guilty of a “willful and wanton disregard for workplace safety.”

Fernandez, who died on April 20, was one of at least five Waterloo plant employees who died of the virus. According to the Black Hawk County Health Department, more than 1,000 workers at the plant — over a third of the facility’s workforce — contracted the virus.

The lawsuit alleges that despite the uncontrolled spread of the virus at the plant, Tyson required its employees to work long hours in cramped conditions without providing the appropriate personal protective equipment and without ensuring workplace-safety measures were followed.

The lawsuit was recently amended and includes a number of new allegations against the company and plant officials. Among them:

NEWS: Karine Jean-Pierre has emerged as a top candidate for Biden's WH press secretary...

NEWS: Karine Jean-Pierre has emerged as a top candidate for Biden's WH press secretary, multiple sources tell @mikememoli, @kwelkernbc and me.

She would be the first Black woman in that role.

Symone Sanders has also been discussed and has recently focused on Harris’ transition.

No final decisions have been made, officials stress, as the emerging West Wing leadership also considers how to structure the communications office in a rapidly-changing media environment.

Kate Bedingfield, communications director for the campaign, is seen as the likeliest choice to serve in the same post in the White House, as she also did in the final year of Biden's vice presidency. Bedingfield had also been considering the press secretary role.

Officials are also considering external candidates for press secretary. One idea under discussion would be a hybrid role that includes a policy focus while also serving as one of the administration's chief public faces, perhaps separate from the traditional press secretary role.

Final decisions on the communications jobs are not expected until next week at the earliest. - reporting via @mikememoli, @kwelkernbc and me
