When will Union members figure it out. The are lead by radical Communists and the Unions are contrary to American principles and that's why Unions are going to die a miserable death. Unions don't work but workers do need representation to give them leverage when dealing with owners. Teachers Unions are the most treacerous of Unions since they use the pretense of caring for our children. However, if they gave a darn about the kids, they wouldn't be filling their own bank accounts at the expense of our childrens futures, which they do every chance they get. We spend more money per child than any country in the world with some of the worst results. No amount of money will ever be enough for these teachers.

Some people believe God is above the minutia of day-to-day American political battles, especially those involving power and money.

But Michigan union members obviously think He will be on their side, if they only ask nicely enough. They are gathering a few days before Election Day to pray for assistance in their effort to enshrine collective bargaining privileges in the state constitution.

Proposal 2 is a power grab by unions. The proposed amendment would guarantee that provisions of union collective bargaining agreements would trump any existing or current state laws. Its approval would probably mean the end to many recent education...
