Michigan Liberals Threaten Violence - So Too Obama

    As Obama tells unions to fight, Michigan union members storm the capitol and talk about "there will be blood".

    “There will be blood,” State Representative Douglas Geiss threatened from the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives today as the body debated legislation that would make Michigan the nation’s 24th right to work state.

    “I really wish we had not gone here,” Geiss continued. “It is the leadership in this house that has led us here. The same leadership that tried to throw a bomb right on election day, leading to a member switching parties, and came in at the 11th hour with a gotcha bill. For that, I do not see solace, I do not see peace.”

    Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder had previously said he had no interest in signing right to work legislation this term, but that has changed as unions have made it increasingly more difficult to govern the state. The Detroit Free Press‘ Tom Walsh explains:

    Public employee unions opposed Snyder’s moves to put more teeth into emergency manager laws that would enable swifter action to rescue cities and school districts that bungled themselves into insolvency.

    In Detroit, Mayor Dave Bing and a spineless City Council were stonewalled by employee unions at every turn, slow-walking needed reforms and cost-cutting while the city burned through cash at a frightening rate.

    As a result, Snyder’s patient attempt to help fix Detroit via consent agreement instead of imposing an emergency manager has failed.
    To top it off, Snyder found himself having to fight off Proposal 2, the ill-advised November ballot attempt to stuff a bag of goodies for organized labor into the Michigan Constitution.

    Michigan has both the highest unionization and unemployment rates in the Midwest.

  3. Not exactly full of gratitude are they? I wonder if they realize if not for the American taxpayer they would all be in the unemplyoment line. Makes it hard for me to support the working man when they act like fools. The stupidity of the auto workers union has cost them tens of thousands of jobs over the years and without the current government subsidy the entire U.S. auto industry would be gone.
  4. Can you imagine for one second the reaction if some Tea Party people did something like this?

    Obama would have half the FBI there and call up the National Guard.

    It's too bad they can't just fire all the teachers who called in sick to participate in this demonstration. Let them do it on their own time but not on the taxpayer's and student's time.

    LOL They did put some of the other videos on Fox News but haven't seen this last one. Maybe buck or AK should send a link to the video to Chris Matthews so he can air it. :D :D
  10. I have many union member friends, most know the union is a scam some do not.

    I have explained to a few of them over and over the 1% and those evil republican taxpayers are the group who pays their salaries and if they take their ball and go home they are screwed.

    The unions believe the tax fairy pays their salaries. It's stunning to see how completely uninformed most of them are.

    UAW slogan should be:

    Highest paid unemployed auto worker on the planet and proud.
