Time to begin recall proceedings for Michigan.

Since the state government is intent on wasting money, let's waste it by invoking a recall on all of the state senators, representatives (Republicans, naturally) and Snyder.

2. Or time for a general strike, or sit down strikes.

To sink all the energy into a long drawn out political campaign, it's probably going to water it down. And the Kochs and them will pour millions into the state, just like in Wisconsin. And then the badguys still might win.

Maybe it's time to try something new? Or do both at the same time. Just throwing that out there. Of course Michigan should do what they think best.

The "statutory initiative" option is also on the table.

Maybe people are talking and planning other things too, I don't know.

3. gotta do something.

this must not be allowed to stand. And, as someone else pointed out, I find it very hard to believe that the leaders of the unions did not see this coming at all. Perhaps someone can explain to me how the thugs pulled this off without the unions getting wind of it in time to mount a resistance.

4. Better idea...President Obama should issue an Executive Order

 

They are constitutional, and since President Obama has a mandate, there is no political risk.

Just mandate federal union laws and heavily penalize states who play in the sand. When the states fail to react to such an order then we will make that Faux News agitator beatdown seem like a kindergarten tussle by taking on every rethug mano a mano. Now, I mean that politically, but if they come at us with fists, then response becomes mandatory and brutal.

13. Uh, no. What Rick Snyder and Co. did is fascism. This is a popular president's relief to workers.

Fascism is the corporate railroading of this law by a bought state government that serves the few corporate leaders and lies to the rest of the state's citizens. Dick De Vos, the Koch Brothers, ALEC bought their boyz to serve up this law.

9. Honestly, I don't think this rises to the the level of a recall

No laws were broken. Elections have consequences and the winners pass the laws they want.

11. Michigan doesn't require specific grounds for a recall

I know a few states do, but not most, and not Michigan. We can recall for any reason.

14. Four outright campaign lies should be sufficient grounds for a recall.

I think he did break the law to uphold the constitution of Michigan, though I can't find a copy of the oath he's supposed to have been sworn in on.
