    They stayed on the sidelines and voted these morons in and this is what you get. I always believe elections have consequences and maybe in 2014 lazy democrats will get their asses to the polls.
    Happens all the time, democrats just don't vote in non presidential elections!

    •  Dammit, we DID just vote them out (1+ / 0-)

      We went through this another thread awhile back.  The Repubs have gerrymandered the whole damn state, and we STILL voted them out in November, and what they're doing now is their standard unconscionable riff of completely ignoring the needs and wants of the people of Michigan.

      What needs to happen is the laws should be changed so that lame ducks don't have two months in which to trash the whole place while sneaking out the back door.

    •  A general malaise among union members (0+ / 0-)

      I sadly concur about our slothfulness. I was at the capitol the day RTW was signed and although there were 12,000+ union members attending I was disappointed to see so little dialogue on my own union's FB page. It's been too long since we've had a real fight and a lot of our younger members don't understand what is at stake and what it takes to hold on to what we've built. Getting off one's ass & voting is much easier then getting one's head cracked down the road!.
