Quintus, you are so right. One must be careful not to use such a broad brush. I do know better!

The Republican controlled Michigan legislature passed right-to-work legislation late Tuesday morning as union members loudly protested inside and outside of the Capitol in Lansing. Michigan Democrat Rep. Douglas Geiss threatened on the House floor this morning "there would be blood" if the legislation passed. Riot police have been on the scene since early this morning bracing for violence.

The Michigan House Democrats reiterated their threat on their Twitter page, but have since deleted it.
