    I do not remember saying anything about you not being an American. You really need to see CITIZEN KANE.

    You seem a bit grumpy today om.Was the Metamucil not shaken but stirred?
    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

    Tell that to the Republicans who control my state government. They now believe that Big Government is the answer to all our problems and are willing to kill democracy for it.

    And what state would that be and when did they take over? Haven't seen a Republican Governor not take on labor unions, expensive entitlement programs, and expansion of govt.

    Michigan. The GOP united to pass several laws taking away local democratic rights including the right to vote for your own public officials and your own local government. They are in the process of passing several more including ordering local units how to negotiate contracts.

    This indeed is Big Brother - Big Government roaring in to local communities and telling local people what it good for them. And to a man it is all Republican backed without one Dem voting for it.

    Just as I thought, when did the Republicans take over the Michigan govt? LOL, such high expectations for a couple months in operation after years of Democrat controlled disasters. Too bad you don't set the same standards for Democrats?

    this is good intentions gone bad (again). if the localities want to go bankrupt, the State should let them. So long as the State isn't on the hook for those union contracts (and if they are, of course, then they have every right to intervene), if the township or city wants to be fiscally irresponsible that should be their own prerogative. that being said, equalizing the playing field between the state-wide (or nation-wide) unions and the local councils is generally a good goal; local government should be granted wide authority to defend itself from them.
