Inflamed duck — Republicans rush to complete their two-year power grab in the last five days

Inflamed duck — Republicans rush to complete their two-year power grab in the last five days

It IS impressive…

If you thought the speed with which Michigan Republicans went to chit chatting about making Michigan a Right to Work for Less state and actually accomplishing that was impressive, you should keep watching because they aren’t done yet, not by a long shot. The frantic pace continued yesterday, just one day after they kicked unions to the curb and brought a record number of people to the Capitol to protest.

Sign the petition to defeat loosening of concealed weapons rules in Michigan

Sign the petition to defeat loosening of concealed weapons rules in Michigan

Let your voice be heard

Last week, I wrote about Senate Bill 59 in my piece “Michigan Republicans move to make guns easier to get, permit concealed weapons in churches, schools, bars, & stadiums”. S.B. 59 will allow the carrying of concealed weapons in schools, churches, bars, daycares, college dorms, hospitals and stadiums. If made into law, this bill would allow those with a concealed pistol license to carry a concealed pistol in no-carry zones if they complete an additional course.

Rev. Eric A. Stone from the St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Essexville, Michigan has put up a SignOn.org petition to fight this dangerous legislation.

Michigan Republicans move to make guns easier to get, permit concealed weapons in churches, schools, bars, & stadiums

What could go wrong???

Michigan Republicans are moving forward with a couple of bills that will make it easier to get handguns in our state and to ease restrictions on where concealed weapons may be carried.

Apparently, one of Michigan’s biggest problems is that it’s just too damned inconvenient to get a gun and who wouldn’t want concealed weapons in churches, schools, bars, and stadiums?

Retired Kalamazoo cop goes to Canada, embarrasses our entire country

Retired Kalamazoo cop goes to Canada, embarrasses our entire country

Please. Stop. You make the rest of us look like the idiot you are.

I’m getting pretty used to Michigan being the laughing stock of the country. Between tea party whacko and Troy mayor Janice Daniels and some of the most absurd tea party Republican legislators you will find in the USA, we really have a big lead in the “Who has the biggest idiots” race.

But Walt Wawra of Kalamazoo has taken it to “11”.

Sorry, pathetic, embarrassing details after the jump.

Eclectablog: Freedom-hating communist

I’ve learned this week that I am, not kidding, a “freedom-hating communist”. Why? Because I have no problem limiting Americans’ right to bear arms. I’m not talking about taking away Americans’ right to bear arms. I’m talking about limiting that right. Sort of along the lines of limiting the right to freedom of expression by making it a crime to […]

Hey. Did you get the memo? No? You didn’t? Ah, well. You can read it here then. Ted Nugent wants you to know that there are evil people among us and that you should be prepared.
