LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A few dozen protesters are staging a peaceful rally inside the Michigan Capitol and say they would like to stay when the building closes for the night.
They are opposed to education funding cuts, taxes on pensions and legislation that would give emergency managers more power over financially distressed local governments and schools.

LANSING The last handful of the original 40 demonstrators who occupied the state Capitol past its normal closing time of 5:30 p.m. left just after 6 p.m. today, but vowed to return in bigger numbers and less peaceably on Wednesday.
Heh heh heh.
less peaceably? Sounds like a threat to me. Too bad they didn’t get more specific. They did write a lot of threatening emails. If anybody (an elected republican) gets hurt someone in the government will have fingers pointing at them for failing to “connect the dots”.
Yeah right. We just saw how you filthy unemployables act when you are left into public buildings for prolonged periods. Why don't you hippie losers head back to your home in the abandoned Volare under the bridge.
The protest was being led by Democrat Lance Enderle, who ran for Congress against Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers and says he'll run again in 2012.Sounds like he's running right now. I saw some jackoffs picketing near downtown during my drive home tonight. A couple of signs said, "Phony Budget Problems Caused by Tax Cuts". Obviously the picketers were gov't-paid goldbrickers.
These communists need to be exposed for what they are....and it is an abomination to how they have indoctrinated and programmed their students. Unbelievable....Lenin and his pal, Pavlov, would be so pleased, as would those cultural Marxists, like Marcuse and Ayers, who would like to see child/man orgies....would be so proud of the results of their godless, reasonless, curricula.
Destroy the DOE and burn the textbooks and give local control to all schools. Destroy the communist plants on school boards and have each town their own boards who have to be parents or grandparents.
LOL Phony Budget problems?
They can threaten to be less peaceful because their comrades in the police department won’t arrest them. What a lousy job all these “public servants” are doing in WI!
Looks like momentum ran dead on into a brick wall here in Michigan of all places.
Tennessee had protestors that had to be carried out today, too. Our lietenant governor on the matter:
“The right of all citizens to protest and assemble peacefully is sacred in the State of Tennessee. However, this General Assembly will not be intimidated by nomadic bands of professional agitators on spring break bent on disruption. We talk through our differences here. Tennessee is not Wisconsin.”
This is the man who should have been our govenror.
Idaho passed a very similar bill to Wisconsin’s and the one that will likely pass in Tennessee with very little fanfare. The momentum is building.
Hang tough, Michigan. Learn from Wisconsin’s mistakes and don’ let the cockroaches inside in the first place. They breed like crazy once they get inside.
Its just kinda funny that the unions are claiming the momentum is on their side and they could only draw 40 protesters in Lansing.
Not only is Lansing a union town, its a college town too.
Is there anyone with a brain who isn’t sick of these leftist morons? Being a leftist life-loser is so THEN.
We’ve already gone beyond Wisconsin in some respects. A week or so back we freed some 16 to 20 thousand forced union members from the plantation.
The difference here is that Rick Snyder isn’t taking the unions on directly. He’s poisoning the well through administrative channels and budget cuts.
Cockroaches, More like Bed Bugs. You can NEVER get rid of them.
Our stinkin’ government is at war with us. We better wake up and take preventive measures.
Hippies, Anarchists and all other Democratic Socialist trash ...
The capital will be closing in 3....2....1....
The Taser Claymore, when one ain’t enough.
I'm doing my part. I live a few blocks from the Capitol, and my street is popular for its posted two-hour parking. I'm making certain that parking enforcement is cruising my hood non-stop.
That'll learn them protesters!
Leeches seem to have an awful lot of free time.
On the local news, they tried their best to make the "protest" seem much larger than it was. There was no camera angle, they could use,however,that didn't show the "crowd" as paltry.
