Citizens’ Recall Drive Against Michigan Governor Rick Snyder

Scott Walker is probably the most famous of the Kochstains who got swept into state legislatures and governors’ offices last November. But Michigan Governor Rick Snyder is even more power-crazed.

If you read political blogs and “alternative” news sites, you probably know about this already. You won’t learn about it from the mainstream corporate-owned “media.” Along with destroying unions and raising taxes on working people and retirees — like the rest of the Kochsuckers — the state of Michigan passed a “financial martial law” bill last month.

This law means Governor Rick Snyder can appoint an “emergency financial manager” to take over the day-to-day governing functions of any city or town in Michigan, if the governor decides it’s an “emergency.” Among other things, local union contracts can be invalidated and rewritten, employees can be fired — all according to the whims of Rick Snyder

Whatever happened to those “local autonomy” and “limited government“ soundbites that conservatives were always spewing out? And shouldn’t the Tenthers have something to say about this?

Who knows what Michigan voters were thinking last November. But now a group called Michigan Citizens United has started a petition drive to get that shitstain out of the governor’s mansion. They’ll need lots and lots of soap, cleanser, disinfectant, bleach…

July 1st is the earliest date that a recall election can be held. Godspeed.

You can visit Michigan Citizens United at their website, FireRickSnyder.org.

And now, on this one year anniversary of the BP oil spill, there’s some good news and bad news. Some folks are making out like bandits.

Others — not so much.

I love the name of that anti-Snyder group.

Simply put, Ricky Snyder is a "taint".


Scott Walker is a "taint" as well.

Rushpubliscum Snyder just might be the first to go. But never underestimate the willingness of Rushpubliscums to rig elections. Snyder will have to be watched very carefully.

Blackwater/Xe runs Michigan now aye?

Fucking Amway assholes.

Glad I got out 40 years ago.

Never has a great state fallen so far so fast.

RIP Winter Water Wonderland

This is great news. I'm sure I heard somewhere earlier this year that Michigan doesn't have a recall law, but that was apparently wrong.

Ousting Snyder and Walker would send a powerful message across the country that there are limits to what people will tolerate, and that Republicans who over reach can expect to pay a painful price. That's a message that desperately needs to be sent.

Count me among the skeptical as to whether any of these "stains" will be rubbed out quickly or well.

They still own the voting machines.

Never forget it.

And until the citizenry decide that ballots have to be counted again (and nothing made by Diebold or any of its successors will be used in counting ballots) no votes will be trustworthy.

Thanks for following this, Tom.

J: Me too; I love the irony.

Jerry: Republicans are good at projecting.

Snave: LOL.

JR: Rushpubliscums rigging elections? I'm shocked :)

jadedj: LOL. Either fire or by smothering them. Whatever it takes.

Randal: You ain't one of them vampires are you?

Anonymous: Blackwater/Xe is probably the next step.

SW: Ohio doesn't have a statute for recalls (they're working to correct that as we speak), but I'm pretty sure Michigan does. The message definitely needs to be sent out, loud and clear.

Suzan: We'll just have to keep rubbing and scrubbing until those stains are gone. In Washington State, all voting is done through the mail. It's not foolproof, but at least there's no Diebold machines or rightwing thugs trying to intimidate voters at the polls.
