Of course it’s just a coinkydink that Tuesday the unions are having a major demonstration in Lansing, concerning the recently passed, but not yet finalized, Right-To-Work law.

“part of an effort to make the case for raising tax rates on wealthier Americans.”

Remember boys and girls, the above phrase is code for
“anyone who has a job in this sh%t economy”

There are training sessions scheduled today for educating protesters in how to avoid getting arrested but my instincts tell me that it will have been for mere appearances sake.

An administration official said earlier that the Michigan trip is part of Obama's effort to get public backing for his positions and use that support to pressure Republicans to reach a deal on the "fiscal cliff."

President Obama's administration has demonstrated its incompetence when it comes to fiscal responsibility because this group has wasted trillions of taxpayer dollars on failed policies, cronyism, and other irresponsible spending.

Of course, the solution is to blame the Republicans for not helping them to tax anyone who is still working.

Continuing failed policies is insane. The Republicans will be mimicking the Democrats if they cry "uncle" and agree to "tax the rich."

Can we get a republican to visit some small businesses hurt by Obama’s policies to get a photo op and sound byte on the evening news? They ought to use his same tactics. I swear, I wish nothing but the worst on that lying pos. always interfering in states business.

oh no

pressure from Michigan union workers on the GOP

However will the GOP congress withstand this new public assault and threats that Michigan union workers will not vote GOP in 2014?

Obama is going to a city, Detroit, bankrupted by high taxes, to visit a bankrupted auto plant, Daimler Chrysler, bankrupted by high union wage rates, to sell even higher taxes and more unions. Doesn’t the press see any irony in this, at all?

“all he knows is campaigning..”
Yes, and if there were anyone in Congress with a microgram of spine, the first thing they would do to control government spending is put a halt to Obama’s endless travel, vacations and campaigning on the taxpayers dime.
Let the DNC and Obama pay out of their coffers.
Oh, I forgot, they don't need a budget in Obamaland....

Remember the widely publicized lib talking point about how Romney would have let Detroit go bankrupt? Turns out, they are now preparing to do it themselves! Demoncrat mantra: say anything and then say it again with the help of lib MSM. Say it ain’t so Joe Arpaio! Bring out the goods on this POS. Enough of the promises.

It’s just a matter of time before a Granholm appointed judge strikes down the Right-To-Work law.

Nope, Conservatives own the state supreme court because those are elected positions.

Virgil C. Smith is currently a judge of the 3rd Circuit Court in Wayne County. He’s got no jurisdiction.

There will be challenges but they’ll have to go to the federal level but I don’t see them getting far because the union has no valid argument.

They can scream, cry and whine to the public about how this strips them of collective bargaining rights but there isn’t a court in the land that will buy that propaganda.

I get a lot of info through twitter.

Michael Moon AKA @Moondizog says “I will be at the protest in Michigan over the RTW battle Tuesday. I will tweet union thug pics and vids. Stay tuned.”

This goes to the heart of unionism. They will band together in solidarity and fight this hammer and tong. It will be dragged out in appeals and as many other delaying tactics as you can imagine. The union bosses know their very existence hangs in the balance. They will never give up and it’s going to get very ugly. I spent half a career fighting these MFers. They are ruthless.

Those are a few clear thinking, freedom loving white guys, clearly exceptions to the standard union knuckle-dragger who toe the union line.

So you really believe that a conservative forced into a union magically transforms into a hard core democrat robot?

Not at all. I’m saying there are few true conservative union members and even fewer who are bold enough to express their views in a video.

Cool. I want to see whether their training keeps them from getting arrested.

Obama can be greeted by the news that China is buying A123 battery systems after we dumped a couple hundred million into it.
