    Imagine that!
    The People have been contending with Communison for decades....What's new under the sun? What's New is the fact of the awakening of the Silent Majority once again....it happened in the 80s and its happening NOW at an even more rapid pace thanks to the information and education being supplied by Talk Radio and the Net. Must we wonder why the left demands to silence our 1st and 2nd amendment rights? GAME OVER.

    Uh oh, here come the activist judge accusations.

    Lincoln never said corporations of the people by the people and for the people. Comparing a government partially intervening in a corporation with Big Government throwing out the elected local government of a city or town is absurd and a rather pathetic and lame attempt to justify the actions of somebody just because they happen to worship before the same altar as you do.

    Your comments are absurd and ridiculous. The law as passed this week by the Republicans and signed by a Republican governor goes far far beyond any provisions of the old law. It is like comparing clipping a nail to amputating an arm.

    But regardless ... is that your standard of what is right? Your standard is to excuse what was done this week because a much much milder bill with a similar name was signed by a Democrat?!?!?!?!?

    That is what you want to make this about?!?!?!?!?

    If that is so - is all yours pal. Just leave your Ronald Reagan autographed holy card at the door and flush the so called 'small government Republican principles' down the toilet with the rest of the crap.

    Years ago we had principled conservatives that stood for principle. I can see there are none here.

    So, this has been around since 1990, and you're whining about it now?

    This sounds like an excellent idea.

    Here's the 1990 law... you might want to actually read it before you continue to whine like a little girl.
    TREASURY - How a Financial Emergency Works

    BTW, that 1990 law was signed by John Blanchard, a Democrat.
    Who - you may want to read your own State of Michigan link because lord knows I have. Just one provision which was rather mild under the previous law which is not much more more powerful under the new dictatorial power grab

    While emergency financial managers are authorized to renegotiate labor contracts, they are not authorized to abrogate such contracts, or other obligations. Therefore, the Act 72 process offers no safe harbor to units of local government seeking to avoid improvidently entered into obligations.
    Under the new law they can do exactly what was forbidden by this language. It has entirely the OPPOSITE effect.

    The new law also goes far beyond the old one in that it also allows the emergency manager to sieze and sell any city asset and sell it without any input or word from the citizens of that community. That was not possible under the old weaker law.

    In fact, the manager could decide to end the city itself by having it merge or combine with other units around it , again, without so much as a boo from the public.

    Like Ronnie said about the most feared words in the English language

    I'M FROM THE GOVERNMENT AND I'M HERE TO HELP.

    And this time is his fellow right wing Republicans who are totally and completely behind it. Not one Democrat in either house voted for this.

    So much for government "of the people by the people, and for the people". Now its over for the people

    Because this isn't about the state taking over local government at all. See this is how dishonest the liberal argument is. In the opening sentence of YOUR own article it clearly states that it gives the state a little more power to intervene into local school districts with help, thereby strengthening their hand in negotiating contracts. But since you see anything that a Union might have to give up in terms of perks as an attack on the unions regardless of whether or not it can be afforded you just come in here an outright lie about what it is that Snyder is doing.

    j-mac
    Why are you lying?

    Under this new law the State can do many things including

    *** throwing out the elected government of a locality and assuming complete and total power given to one person or even one company
    *** throwing out even the elected city council thereby destroying the basic fundamental American idea of checks and balances
    *** completely dissolve any and all agreements, in part or in total, the city has made with its workers or any other contract in direct contradiction to the previous law
    *** refuse to recognize any organization representing the workers or even community members
    *** selling off any and all city assets
    *** ending any and all city services
    *** and there is no limit on how much they can get paid or what their total financial compensation can be

    Like I said, I grew up in Lansing. I remember a better time in MI than what can be had there now. Thanks to Unions, and decades of democrat control Michigan has become a real model of just how badly a democrat with socialist tendencies can screw up a state with vast resources, and strong industrial base. The UAW has a major hand in that as well. Just ask Flint, Detroit, any area where there is decay thanks to union destruction of the income base.

    On the bright side, I hear you can buy a house in Detroit now for a dollar, if you can afford the bullet proof glass and 24/7 security.

    To say unions are the only cause of the decay of Michigan is a real fallacy ok.

    Simply put. Manufacturing and industry was going to leave America NO MATTER WHAT.

    Unless your suggesting an American wants to work for 9 cents an hour for 18 hours a day, you're not going to compete. End of story. Case closed. Goodnight.

    That's it.

    I see the same things up here in Industry/Manufacturing towns in Ontario that had all the factories closed down.

    Too bad. Sorry.

    You know its incredible that Americans want the country to be prosperous. Want everyone to have very nice things, well paying jobs, but then when its blatantly obvious that an industry cannot compete internationally in their country its obviously politicians fault.

    Oh I think we can compete just fine. That is if you want to really talk of what is holding our industry back. Take for example the foreign aid we send out per year....$27 Billion for China? Really? Why?

    Trade agreements that allow foreign products to be sold freely with no tariff here, while the country sending us those products slaps high tariffs on our products there?

    Unions that negotiate deals holding whole communities hostage, that pay on average 1/3 higher wage than that job is really worth, and benefit packages that snuff out the business they work for in future years. But hey, that's after they get theirs so who cares right?

    Taxes on these businesses that force them to look for less prohibitive places to manufacture in the first place, and regulations put in place by demo/libs that have their eye on some utopian view without considering the unintended consequences of the actions they take.

    Meanwhile, all during this ****storm, the libs that destroy the landscape around them with their labels, and talking point rhetoric have the balls to stand there and hypocritically accuse and blame the right for the consequences of their own actions.

    Get a clue man.

    Irregardless of anything you have to say here.

    The fact of the matter is, no matter what Republicans, democrats of Joan Rivers does, you simply cannot compete.

    Again, unless you're suggesting an American is willing to work for 9 cents an hour for 18 hours a day.

    Forget it.

    The domestic market is shot. The global market is growing, and they want **** cheap and now.

    The truly effecting factor at this point is transportation costs. As oil rises, production costs will be attempted to be lowered to compensate.

    No way America can compete with that, regulation or no regulation.
