Itís Official: Mich. Right-To-Work Bill Becomes Law
The Blaze ^ | 12-11-12

Posted on 12/11/2012 4:32:49 PM PST by Mozilla

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed right-to-work legislation, dealing a devastating and once-unthinkable defeat to organized labor in a state that has been a cradle of the movement for generations.

He put his signatures on the bills Tuesday, hours after the state House passed the measures as the chants of thousands of angry pro-union protesters filled the Capitol.

The Obama cult-worship in Washington belies what's going on at the grassroots.

Power is slowly but surely devolving to the people IMO. I do believe the Presidential election may have only been a Pyrrhic victory for The Won.

Oh, man! I hope to G-d these guys have massive security. From what I’ve seen, blood is gonna flow. The unions aren’t going to take this with a whimper. And obama will have them in a frenzy for revenge.

Remember the teachers union has your kids. And there ain’t a darn thing you can do about it except homeschool. So do it.

It does look like outside the beltway we have governors and republicans with a spine. It is in D.C. where the final hurdle lays to resurrect conservatism.

Boy, that was one nasty link! Looks like the bed wetters have lost their water, if not their mud.

A great day for Michigan and America, in spite of the obscenities/threats made against Gov. Snyder.

Simply amazed that MICHIGAN is now a RTW State! Never did I think it possible!

There’s our hope. We MUST take care of our state no matter what. Obama feigns to be for the little guy. Well, each state is the little guy in comparison to the federal bully. The little guys must show the bully who is boss.

They aren't going down without a fight.

Remember when they brought Wisconsin to Bleeding Kansas territory last year.

It could very bad very fast, because now the gravy train stops.

Remember what Ubama said about how to argue with neighbors, Get In Their Face!!!

The left is back to its old game of threatening people. They really gave it to Steven Crowder when he was at the protests. The left sure loves violence.

Was looking at the new map on nrtwc site and saw how lovely Michigan looks in red! Just wonder if Missouri will ever be colored red by the NRTWC? The Republicans in Jeff City have sat on it for years now...

They face a lot higher hurdles in trying to overturn this in Michigan. The GOP was smart enough to make it referendum proof by attaching an appropriation to it.

Our legislators are term limited and many of them are on their way out and are virtually untouchable. They’ve already tied to recall Snyder twice and failed.

If they want to overturn it they need to take all 3 branches of government in this heavily republican state. There will be challenges but they really don’t have a legitimate argument.

Michigan is the crown jewel of unionism and I think we’re going to see multiple states go RTW in short order.

Rush has been talking about that lately too.

He has basically been talking about a coming class war with out saying it.

We have been warned. I have listened, you have listened Mesta. But sadly too many people in America fall for the Class envy card. The Dark Knight Rises predicted this EXACT scenario. Attack the people who have the ability to create as the people who stole it from you!.

Pray, Pray hard.

Was the Tea Party Conservatives? Or those GOP-E's who told you they wouldn't support a T.P. Candidate.

Before I wouldn't have believed you. But with this RTW the Union power is broken. Now they will stand or fall on their own merits.....or lack there of.

Watch and see just how many teachers will gladly leave the union. Might take a few years, but they will.

Gov. Snyder has (and legislature) has vastly expanded the number of charter schools in Michigan, they’re being built (yes as in new structures) and often staffed by ex-union teachers that actually want to teach.

Indeed.

But I was interested to see that most of the comments are anti-union. And pretty much all of the pro-union commenters see this new legislation as outlawing unions. In effect, they’re conceding the main point, that given the choice, most workers won’t join the union.

“Michigan is crippled. It’s dead and dying. Unions and Democrats have bled every ounce of life from it.”

That is simply a false and grossly ignorant statement.

You DID see what happened here right? Have you read the numbers of GOP state elected offices here?

Can you name an elected rat with a job higher than county? No.

Please do not disparage the millions of good people here that know the difference between a representaive republic and a mob democracy and finally put enough good people in office to do the right thing.

We’re correcting eight years of Moleface one day at a time, we even have have a housing boom where I live.

Michigan is a sea of red, with a couple pockets of third world ghettos like Detroit & Flint.

Perhaps congratulating Michigan citizens on a job well done over years would be more prudent than ranting a falsehood that serves no purpose.

Only this time, they will get it right back. People have had it. The arrogance and the vindictiveness from the union bosses, corrupt officials, and lowlife politicians have taken their toll on normal people who just want to live, work, and pursue their happiness.
