Michigan should now formally change its name to MICHISSIPPI!

3. Koch Brothers are on a roll. David and Charles, was it? Milking that 2010 Sweep quickly.

Before too many people wake up and smell the union power they have been trying to squash for decades now.

The Koch Brothers' ALEC-bots / ALEC-boughts.
