QUOTES AND QUIPS from Michigan’s Big Show starring Michael Patrick Shiels

By on August 16th, 2019

MPS: “Felix Sharpe-Caballero, public administrator and analyst, are we headed for an all-out race war in America?”

Sharpe-Caballero: “We are clearly at a point where race is a problem in the country and if we don’t move to address it in a real kind of way it will eat us alive.”


MPS: “US Senator Gary Peters is making his annual motorcycle trip around the State. Senator what’s it like to motorcycle across the Mackinac Bridge?”

U.S. Senator Gary Peters

Peters: “It’s gorgeous. There is nothing more beautiful than the Straits of Mackinac. This year I had to ride on the grates. The grates are a little more challenging on a motorcycle. The wheel moves around a little bit. It’s better to just be on regular old concrete and avoid the grates, but that was not possible this year because of construction.”


MPS: “John Goulouze, you’re a financial advisor with Regal Financial Group in Grand Rapids. The new auto sales figures are in and they are consistent; but we had a big Dow drop yesterday given the China trade situation. Are you bullish on the stock market?”

Gouluze: “I am bullish on Michigan. Our economy has been spectacular. Our manufacturing is doing good; we’re selling cars; the skilled trade workers are making money; everybody’s making money in Michigan. We’re doing really well here.”


MPS: “Andy Schor, you’re the democrat mayor of the Capital City. If President Donald Trump came to Lansing, would you meet with him?”

Schor: “If he’s going to be part of solving the problem, then you have to work with him. I think some of his comments have led to white supremacy and other things and that’s frustrating, but if he came here, and I could solve problems, and get in his ear, and get commitments, then I would absolutely work with him.”
