Susan J. Demas: Establishment Republicans try to crush the Tea Party, but is it too late? | MLive.com.

 

Republicans are doomed.  Demographics are against them, they can only steal and delay so long and then its over.  They unleashed the Tea Party to do their dirty work and now they can’t get the genie back in the bottle.  Unless the corporate special interests invest heavily in the primaries…they are done.

Won’t be another Republican president in my lifetime.

The GOP’s Plan to Rig the Electoral College, Explained | Mother Jones.

Ummm….Snyder said “its not on his agenda”, that means that the Rethuglicans will find a way to ram it through before 2016.  Just like RTW wasn’t on his agenda.  See, Snydley has to get re-elected and his numbers are in the shitter right now, if he proposes this now, he is done in 2014.  But if he wins in 2014 (Whitmer is out of the race and all the billionaires are on his side), then the Rethugs can ram this home before the 2016 Presidential race….nice

We chose the lesser of two evils. Having won, we shouldn’t delude ourselves that, if we work him right, Obama could turn out to be really great. What we bought is four more years of the same crappy, disappointing government we had before.

Too True…Obama is the best Republican that has been in the White House since Ford…..LOL

ACLU, Unions File Lawsuit to Invalidate Michigan’s Right-to-Work Law | ACLU of Michigan | Because Freedom Can’t Protect Itself

31 Jan

The lawsuit stems from the contentious events of Dec. 6, 2012, when the Michigan Capitol doors were locked to prevent additional people from coming to witness or engage their legislators while the controversial right-to-work bills were being debated on the House and Senate floors. The public, including some journalists, were locked out for more than four hours while legislators debated and voted on the bills. While individuals already in the Capitol could stay, people waiting outside were not allowed to enter. In addition, the galleries overlooking the House floor were intentionally packed with legislative staffers so that the public would not be allowed in.

I was one of the people locked out that day.  “A pox on all your houses”

Perhaps it’s best to turn to someone who actually practiced the art: “Capitalism is the legitimate racket of the ruling class.” Al Capone said that.
