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.

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.
