Ready to protest bailing out the auto industry. You know, the one that employs 60% of Michigan workers? Well, they were outnumbered by some union folks who showed up […]

As goes Michigan, so goes the country?

Cross-posted at Blogging For Michigan. As I sit here in frigid Michigan this morning, I’m contemplating the state of our state. And pondering if we are, perhaps, a bellwether for the rest of the country, particularly in terms of Democrats and our political future. It’s a mixed bag in Michigan, to be sure. As I blogged about last week, there’s […]

GOP Rep. Rogers: “They just sentenced to death 36K women”

My former U.S. Representative Mike Rogers stopped by the offices of the Livingston Press & Argus yesterday to throw some poop on health care reform. Not only did he throw poop, he told several bald-faced lies including this one: He said a government-appointed panel’s conclusion that women need fewer mammograms at certain ages would be incorporated in the bills. Rogers, […]

Republicans: The third grade bullies of Congress

The Republicans in the House of Representatives are so out-numbered by their Democratic counterparts that they’ve resorted to just being dicks to slow things down. It doesn’t serve any purpose whatsoever except to just be a dick move. They do things like leave their voting cards in their office or use other cards that force them to write in their […]

GOP takes measure of HCR bill. No, I mean LITERALLY.

GOP takes measure of HCR bill. No, I mean LITERALLY.

I’m on so many goddam email lists. Some how I managed to stay on MI-08 Representative Mike Roger’s list. He’s often viewed as a “moderate” Republican but he’s anything but. This morning, his latest email graced my inbox and in it, he takes measure of H.R. 3962, the House bill to reform health care insurance in this country. No, I […]

Latest RNC push-poll: “Do you hate America?”

I got the latest RNC push-poll yesterday via my friends at the Washington Times. Although they don’t come right out and ask if you hate America, they might as well. The questions are classic push-poll fodder and give us yet another glimpse at how the Republicans shape the national dialog and spread fear, misconceptions and out-right lies. My favorite one […]

MI-GOP Senate Maj. Leader: “We need to keep wages low”

MI-GOP Senate Maj. Leader: “We need to keep wages low”

Michigan leads the nation in unemployment. Our businesses are closing their doors, our food banks are running out of food and our workers are facing firings, layoffs and, when they actually keep their jobs, many, like me and all of my coworkers, face wage cuts. The Republican Senate Majority Leader’s answer? “…create an environment where…labor costs are low…” Oh sure. […]
