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!

Governor Walker VS. Wisconsin Unions

I proudly stand behind the people of Wisconsin and the “Wisconsin 14”. The Wisconsin 14 refers to the 14 democrat senators that have fled the state. The Dems fled in order to prevent a quorum in the Senate, and thus are preventing a vote on the Governor’s financial legislation. The Senate Majority leader has several times sent WI State Troopers to their homes, to bring them to the Senate floor, and thus satisfy the quorum requirements.

Sarah Palin: American Idiot

Sarah Palin. Love her or hate her this woman has made a splash in the media. There are whispers of this woman possibly running for President in 2012. This intrigues me and I have decided to read up on Sarah to see where she stands.

Sarah Palin was born in Sandpoint, Idaho and her family relocated to Alaska when she was an infant. In 1984 Palin was named Miss Wasilla and placed third in the Miss Alaska pageant. Sarah college hopped and finally received her bachelor's degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism in 1987 from University of Idaho.
