Once again we got a look at the Union activists..this time in Michigan..after the state legislature passed a new law making Michigan a “right to work state” .
This means that Unions cannot force non-union workers to pay into their huge fund which is used for political influence. This has become the way of Unions. I had to be a union member as a MN teacher for many years but in the first years we were not forced to make a contribution toward the political lobbying. That changed when so many members opted out of supporting the teacher’s union’s political activism, that we were forced to pay for it whether we agreed with it or not.
Now the lies are flying about what Michigan’s new law will do ….the Liar In Chief himself…the US President has told so many lies in the past few days about right to work status that it causes one to get dizzy. He claims the new law takes away the right to bargain for wages and benefits which is a huge lie…it does no such thing but it does take away the Union’s former power to make non members pay for Union dues.
But that is not what the Unionists or the President who supports their vile behavior want everyone to know…they want their lies to be known in the hopeless causes they try to shove down everyone else’s throats.
If there was a standard Union flag in Michigan it could tell the truth about the auto workers and the teachers in that state and have bold words on the flag’s body: VIOLENCE WILL BE USED TO DISCOURAGE NON UNION WORKERS would be the first tenet inscribed on the flag. BLOOD WILL RUN IN THE STREETS could also be inscribed…that is what Unionists who did not get their way in this latest legislative struggle said after showing what true Bad Losers look like. SOCIALISM IS THE ONLY WAY TO LIVE
could be another inscription but by then the flag would have to be super sized to get all the Union “promises” on it. It would be too heavy to wave on a flag pole also.
The Unionism on display in the past year— first in Wisconsin and now in Michigan—- is as ugly a scene as can be dreamed up.
A video of the violence in Lansing in the past day (shot by newsmen and newswomen) showed violence of an unprecendented level….Unionists cursing with the most vile language that had to be bleeped out of the video recording..principally the use of the many forms of the “F” word— among other vile curses. It also showed Unionists tearing down a tent of another group that must have been anti- union because the violence of the attack was jaw – dropping. It mattered not that there were people inside the tent..the Unionists went after it like they wre attacking a war enemy such as Al Quaida or some other national threat. It was truly awful to see in our nation that says we are a free people govenerned by a Constitution that guarantees freedom to express ourselves in spite of other’s opposition..but the Unionists clearly do not believe that basic tenet of our Liberty. They perpetuate a growing and familiar way known as MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY… a totally un-American way of dealing with conflicts and issues that need resolution. The level of violence and outright hatred exhibited by the Unionists is overwhelmingly frightening.
I have not forgotten the level of hate of the Crystal Sugar Unionists shouting N***g*er at workers from the south who came to work when Crystal Sugar shut out the Unionists who would not agree to a contract. That Union is stil paying the price for their Unionism and the “leaders” at that time had to do some fancy back pedaling to try to smooth over the hateful shouts of Union members in Moorhead.
I have concluded based on much of what I have studied since the Wisconsin debacle at the Madison State House, that Unions primarily foster hate and violence when anyone tries to get in their way. It teaches its members to behave like criminal thugs in order to get their way…even when the majority of citizens opposes their outrageous demands on the companies they work for.
Why is Michigan emptied out of much of its working population? Why does Detroit look like a city from some country where economic ruin is rampant?
I remember seeing Detroit in 1959 and is was a beautiful city, thriving and properous. It is no longer.
Detroit had a population of 1,849,568 people once, and was the fifth largest city in the United States. Now having much of its citizenry fleeing from the state, Detroit has a population of 706,585..many of them unemployed and dependent on government programs.

“What happened to the people who remain?
The Census Bureau estimates there are 563,055 people who potentially could work and be part of the labor force. But only 54.3 percent of this number either have a job or are looking for one.
Another 257,576 of Detroit residents 16 years or older –do not have a job nor are they looking for one.”

(from a report on CNS news: “Obama’s America Will Become Detroit” Dec 12, 2012 by Terence P. Jeffrey)

Another piece of information from that article is that 34.5 percent of Detroit’s households are on food stamps.
There were 12, 103 babies born in the 12 months prior to the Census Bureau’s survey and over 9000 of them were born to single and unmarried women.
Of the 363, 281 housing units in Detroit, 99,072 are vacant…a mute and vacant testimony of what governemnt socialism has done to that city.
A concluding statement by the author, Terence Jeffrey, is chilling:

“School books are not lacking here {in Detroit} Self – reliance, the spirit of individualism and the Judeo- Christian values that support marriage and family are. They have been driven {out} by a government that wants people to depend on it rather than on themselves, their families or their faith.”

It is sad to contemplate that this could become the entirety of the United States if we meekly follow the Obama plans for us—or if we adopt the “values” of those who wave the Unionist flag in our faces.

I am a retired elementary "schoolmarm"..I was a school librarian/media director for nearly 25 years before I retired in 2004. Naturally one of my fondest things is reading! I also love reading aloud to young children, something I did for so many years with amazing results; every child wants to read the same book as the teacher read!!!! I also am fond of my gardens...both flower beds and vegetable plots. I love being outdoors....mowing the lawn after my husband has done so with a big lawn tractor...I trim with my small power mower! I have a rain barrel to collect rainwater for plants! I have an old fashioned "pedal" bike I love to ride. I enjoy going to a Silver Sneakers class at a community center about 20 miles from my country home on what I call the "Buffalo Bluff" which overlooks the Buffalo River and its valley below. I LOVE to write and am working on a book for my grandkids so they will always know more about Grandma when she was still "kickin" and "had all her marbles"!!!!

  1. Michigan is a blue state, and these Republicans are desperately pushing through this “right to work for less” bill NOW because they know their days are numbered. A vast majority of Michigan citizens are against this, and in 2014 Gov. Snyder and his Republican tea party is going to get thumped and this law will get overturned.

    1. I disagree…..this would not have occurred without support from more Michiganders than what you claim. Legislatoin being pushed?
      Maybe the Conservatives in MI learned how to do it from the Idiots in Washington who shoved legislation down America’s throat in 2009….the failed Stimulus, and the Bill That We Must Now Find Out What Is In It (Nancy Pelosi)
      But I understand Cobra..if Libs do it then it is absolutely the Cats Pajamas (look that up because you won’t know what it means)

      1. These Republicans are doing what they can while they still have power, I understand that. But their reign of radicalism is coming to an end. The “right to work for less” will get overturned after Snyder and his fellow travelers are sent packing in 2014.

  2. If you like working for a lower wage, have less benefits, no pension, no healthcare, and less rights in the workplace, then “right to work for less” is for you. I’m sure Michigan (a state that voted twice for Obama) will just love it to death (death being the key word).
