LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Republicans slammed right-to-work legislation through the Michigan House and Senate Thursday, drawing raucous protests from throngs of stunned union supporters, whose outnumbered Democratic allies were powerless to stop it.
Just hours after they were introduced, both chambers approved measures prohibiting private unions from requiring that nonunion employees pay fees. The Senate quickly followed by voting to impose the same requirement on most public unions.
Right to work? In Michigan? Isn’t that where Detroit is located? Isn’t that home of one of the biggest thug unions in the entire nation, (UAW)? I’m sure those thugs aren’t going to take this lying down…because, as we’ve seen time-and-time again, when workers are given the the choice as to whether or not to join unions…they don’t.
And, according to this headline, looks like the union goons are already fighting mad:

Seriously? Is there anything better during the holidays than unions hacks getting pepper sprayed and then arrested? The beautiful irony? Those state troopers who were pepper spraying them? Union workers, too.
Oh…and while the Michigan legislature was busy poking Liberal golden idols in the eye:
his pro-Second Amendment reform legislation sponsored by Senator Mike Green (R-Mayville) would streamline the process for a concealed weapons license, while creating expanded carry zones in previously prohibited places for those who are willing to undergo enhanced training. Along with many other improvements, SB 59 would, if enacted, also eliminate concealed weapons licensing boards and instead assign the role of licensing authority to county sheriffs effective May 1, 2013. Further requirements to streamline and improve the license process include establishment of a system for refunds of fees, requirement of county sheriffs who maintain fingerprinting capability to provide reasonable access to fingerprinting services, and a requirement to either issue or deny the license within a 45-day period from the date of application.
Don’t look now, but freedom is breaking out in the unlikeliest of places…
