There is a huge fireworks display on the Detroit River with music for hundreds of thousands of folks on both sides of the border - people getting along just fine with no stinkin' fence.

In case you missed it....

by moose67

The Democratic Convention had a nice change of pace from the hate-filled music that is heard at many Republican events by such "musicians" (and I use that word loosely) as Hank Williams Jr. or Ted Nugent.

Best Billboard ever !

by moose67

Ruth's List Florida, a pro-choice group that seeks to elect Democratic women to office, says it has paid for this billboard to greet attendees of the Republican National Convention in Tampa. The billboard is at the intersection of I-275 and Armenia. Officially, city elections are nonpartisan, but Mayor Bob Buckhorn and council members are registered Democrats.

Note: Below is an illustration of what the billboard looks like.

Wow - what a wild weather day here in SE Michigan!
Normally we have one of the safest states in the country in terms of events of this kind.  And after having the mildest winter I can ever remember in my 67 years here, this is really a shock.

Michigan HB 4929 is just recent legislation passed intended to crush our unions in the state. By not allowing payroll deduction of union dues, individual employees must write a check each month to their unions to pay their dues.  No matter how loyal or well-intentioned union members may be, this is likely to result in many people not paying their union dues regularly, on time or maybe not paying them at all.  What better way to destroy a union?

In your face Teapublicans!

by moose67

There is an interesting article over at HuffPost about how the extended Bush tax cuts have resulted in a loss of $11.6 million per hour in tax revenues for our country. Check it out:   Cost of Bush Tax Cuts

Teapublicans in Congress have blocked any attempt to raise revenues during these tough times 'cuz Grover will slap 'em down if they allow the rich to be taxed.  All of the Teapublican candidates constantly claim President Obama is "running up the debt."

Freedom Festival - 2011

by moose67

Every year for the last 50 years or so, a big celebration occurs in Detroit & Windsor, neighboring cities separated by the Detroit River.  Canada celebrates Canada Day on July 1st and we celebrate Independence Day on July 4th - so why not combine the two with a huge party with one of the greatest fireworks displays in the world?  It's going on right now with music and rockets synchronized in an amazing display.  Its even more amazing that two countries can get along so well and share a common dream of freedom.  After choirs sang "Oh Canada" and "The Star Spangled Banner" - the first song played was John Lennon's "Imagine".
