    Michigan lawmakers are on the verge of approving a bill that would enable the governor to appoint "emergency managers" -- officials with unilateral power to make sweeping changes to cities facing financial troubles.

    Under the legislation, the Michigan Messenger reports, the governor could declare a "financial emergency" in towns or school districts. He could then appoint a manager to fire local elected officials, break contracts, seize and sell assets, eliminate services - and even eliminate whole cities or school districts without any public input.

    The measure passed in the state Senate this week; the House passed its own version earlier. The two versions of the bill are expected to be reconciled next week, and Republican Gov. Rick Snyder has said he will sign the bill the bill into law.

    I am pissed at the blue dog Democrats, and evidently so were many voters as they took a beating at the 2010 election. And I guess you are just as pissed at the GOP for not decreasing spending when they controlled all branches of the government?

    Right, let me know when that happens. I won't hold my breath. Unlike liberals, conservatives know that private business runs the economy, not public unions.

    Right, and of course collective bargaining can be bought again and will be by corrupt, greedy unions and their thugs.

    Back to the blanket statements, are we?

    I’ve not only explained in this thread how union dues is kept separate from other Union funds, but in another thread I provided you a link to a Teamster local near your abode as well, on the off chance that you just might want to kick into their DRIVE PAC.


    By the way here is what DRIVE stands for “Democrat, Republican, Independent Voter Education”. We stuck in a big R just in case you might want to say that you gave to a Union bi-partisan go pac.

    Here is the link…yet again. I also provide a link to DRIVE for the International Union, in case you want your bucks spread throughout the country for a good cause.

    It’s a shame that you forgot the link to your home local the first time though, late onset sure is rough isn’t it…so sad.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    What you ignored is that union dues are required in Wisconsin, no one gets a job without joining a union and thus is forced to pay dues. All your other points are worthless. Unions tell people what they can do with some of their earnings.
