#1 Who now won't have that money to spend on other causes...
Sure, but they'll make up for it by collecting dues from the out-of-towners who came to help with Sandy recovery. Disgusting creatures.

#2 It's Michigan, Bobby. They're a bit far away to profit from hurricane Sandy.

#3 Good move Michigan. These unions are criminal enterprises.

#4 haha!! I voted absentee and said HELL NO on this nonsense! Good, at least one win for the good guys. They voted back in Stabenow (aka Stab-a-cow) and obviously Obummer. I've been trying hard for yrs to remove stabenow. Idiot state.

#6 Meanwhile, in Wisconsin...

Republicans retook control of the State Senate. So, after all the recalls, protests and other blather Walker and the Republicans are firmly back in control.

#7 Two union-related proposals were smacked down in MI. The one mentioned in the article as well as another that would force-unionize home-based caregivers and allow the Service Employees International Union to collect money.

Another proposal to require utilities to generate 25% of their power from green source was also shot down. Power grabs and nonsense aside, stuff like this just does not belong in a state constitution.

#8 slightly more than 12 percent of private-sector workers are in a union

Does that 12% include Government Motors workers, or are they in the public unions category?

#9 SteveS, right. I saw that and voted against that as well. The gov't needs to stay out of putting numbers to how energy production will be done in a state referendum. And, anytime I am not sure on a proposal, all I ask myself is - will this initiative (if it passes) make a fellow citizen pay more in a tax? If so, I always vote no.
