  •  The Dems have no power in MI at this point (7+ / 0-)

    and if there was an amendment attached to it, the amendment would fail. I don't think that it would be introduced! The Republicans have a 26 to 12 majority in the Senate and a 64 to 46 majority in the house.

    The state has been gerrymandered into a joke. The only thing in our favor is the vulnerability of our State Senators.

    •  MI GOP bringing a Special Bleakness to these (2+ / 0-)

      holiday times...while everyone is distracted by the season's gifting spirit, a legacy of when Christmas was about commemorating a Savior being born to bring the Kingdom of Heaven, Kingdom of God to all the poor and oppressed, to all the widows and orphans, bringing healing the sick, feeding and clothing the needy, freeing the imprisoned and restoring justice like rollling waters, and bringing the renewing waters of Life and True Peace of Heaven's Love to all nations, forever ending the sinful wars pushed by greed, lust for power, and hatred that have besieged so much of humanity.  

      Strange thing--God can form saving unions with men and women but we can't be allowed (by the GOP) to contract together to have unions to limit the impact on workers from the greed and power of the greedy and powerful and securing justice, rights, due process, and living wages and benefits ensuring health and a secure retirement, as well a protecting the spouse and children in widowhood.  That 'Right to Work' really just means the Employer's Inalienable Right to offer pitiful crap for hard work, to reneg on promises to workers, to have the freedom to operate on the whims of management, and to enshrine and ensure maximum transfer of the gains from production to the non-working class shareholders.

      When life gives you wingnuts, make wingnut butter!
