Unions Pray (Literally!) for Victory on Michigan Collective Bargaining Ballot Initiative

With the Unons proclivity for stuffing ballot boxes, I imagine fraud will be rampant in the voting. I hope they get caught and called on it by the people of that state. If this passes people will start voting with their feet. With Michegan well on the way becoming our first Islamic state, Unions will have a field day recruiting Islamists to Statism. That group already does not beleive in freedom for the masses. Should fit right in with Richard Trumpka's desire for Socialism.

Trumpka is one of those useful union idiots who desperately want socialism; until they get it.

All these guys who push for socialism never see themselves as one of the masses, only as one of the privileged elite. But when socialism finally arrives they find out the hard way that authoritarian socialism has no use for unions. It bans them instead.

When that great socialist party supreme committee sits down every year to divvy up the spoils of their despotic rule they're not going to tolerate any suggestions or complaints from any organized proletariat. If you don't believe this check out the history of organized labor in Russia from 1917 to 1991.

Or how about the history of labor unions in Red China? Gee, maybe I'm just ignorant, but I can't recall anything.

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...
