Michigan Republicans Keeping the Batshit Craze Alive

Have ya heard? Republican Michigan governor Rick Snyder, along with the state's Republican house and senate, have passed a controversial bill that allows the governor to dissolve the elected governments of Michigan's towns and cities, replacing them with unaccountable "emergency financial managers" who can eliminate services, merge or eliminate school boards, and lay off or renegotiate unionized public employees without recourse. Republican senator Jack Brandenburg -- who supported the measure -- calls it "financial martial law."

Local governments are subject to electoral recall by residents, these “managers” who the governor appoints will only have to answer to the state legislature. The “managers” will be able to govern as they see fit.

WHAT!?!?! Seriously?! How….undemocratic!
