    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.
    How was Michigan doing prior to the new gov? What is the unemployment in...say...Detroit. Still at 30%? And didnt you say you were a shill for an elected demcrat politician now that you are no longer shilling JUST for unions? Bias much?

    Did you not read the article on the new law just passed by Republicans in both houses of the Michigan legislature and signed by the Republican Governor without one single Democratic vote of support?

    What does any of that have to do with Republicans passing the new Emergency Manager law taking away the rights of local people to elect and have their own local government?

    Attacking me personally does not change what the Republicans in Michigan have done.

    Your sainted idol Ronnie Reagan said the most feared words in the English language were "I'm'' from the government and I'm here to help". Poor Ronnie is probably rolling over in his grave as what his party has done in Michigan abolishing local peoples votes and the right to have their own local government.

    Another Republican President - Abraham Lincoln is probably resting rather uneasy in Springfield knowing that the party he helped put on the map no longer believes in a "government of the people, by the people and for the people". Or at least the first two thirds of it.

    What in the world do I have to do with Republicans in Michigan passing the law which gets rid of the local citizens right to elect and have their own government? Why are you trying to focus on me?

    Attacking me personally does not change what the Republicans in Michigan have done.
    "Currently three Michigan cities—Pontiac, Ecorse and Benton Harbor—and Detroit's school district have emergency financial managers because they are in dire financial shape.

    Many more are on the brink. This week, Flint received state backing for a $8 million bond issue to ease a cash shortage. Hamtramck, a small enclave surrounded by Detroit, is also seeking an emergency loan from the state."

    Taken from your article...maybe the reason the governor is having to lead is because so many of your cities are digging massive financial holes? Im guessing if their massive debt wasnt impacting the state he could just ignore them...watch Detroit implode on itself. Hey...BTW...how many schools are they closing in Detroit because they cant afford to pay their unionized teachers? And what is the average Detroit literacy rate? You would know, right? I mean...being hooked up with an elected dem...how would you grade the Detroit school system? A? B? Whats worse than F???

    I think patience and memory are the keys that will close the door on the republicans in 2012

    You are the one whining about the republicans...so lets stick with the issues. What is the state of your state? What did the republican governor inherit? How are your cities doing? How is your unemployment?
