It is all economics and when one does the math, anyone with half a brain should be able to see what is coming in the future. A fiscal tsunami of debt, and the unions won't be able to get this taken care of with tax payer money, as that cupboard is also bare

The crux of your comment, referencing "half a brain" clearly identifies there is a large majority of our population who doesn't possess walking around sense. The use of a phrase like "fiscal cliff" seems so chic to these mind-numbed individuals.

It's unbelievable....

When it rains it pours for the Michigan Education Association.

It was recently defeated on Election Day when it attempted to pass a ballot proposal that would have enshrined collective bargaining in the state constitution. Now it’s in full panic mode about a rumored Right to Work bill that may be introduced in the state legislature.

So as the union’s power is waning, it appears the cupboard may be going bare, too.

The MEA has been foundering under staggering liabilities for the last few years, and it may have just gone over the cliff.

Despite only a minor drop...
