Michigan added itself to the growing list of right-to-work states – now nearly half the states in the country. Despite vocal threats from union members who swarmed the state capitol, and now ongoing threats from Democrats – including President Barack Obama, Michigan law makers sent a decisive message to Big Labor/Big Government – WE ARE FIGHTING BACK.

Democrats threaten violence on Michigan House floor
“There will be blood,” State Representative Douglas Geiss threatened from the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives today as the body debated legislation that would make Michigan the nation’s 24th right to work state.
Michigan has both the highest unionization and unemployment rates in the Midwest. LINK
Seems like only yesterday Barack Obama was running for re-election and boasting of how his administration had “saved” the auto industry, Detroit, and Michigan. That was a lie of course – but the Mainstream Media happily perpetuated it for him. What Barack Obama did was illegal theft of the auto industry bond holders, award partial ownership to his Labor Union cronies to protect them from imminent extinction, and then drastically increase orders by the federal government for vehicles the government did not need to pad the sales reports of those companies he just took over – all on the taxpayer’s dime of course.
Now, even moderate Democrats in Michigan, (yes, they do exist) are fed up with the bullying no compromise tactics of the labor unions and are, for the first time in decades, pushing back – ignoring the threats of union leaders and Barack Obama himself.
The Battle of 2014 is underway – and it appears to have started in Michigan today…
