Right to Shirk laws: GOP;s plan to destroy Democrats' $$$ sources

Michigan's lame duck GOP legislators' putsch against the unions reveals the GOP notions of the Workers' Paradise: a land without unions, where states compete not in quality of work or productivity or training...but in a simple race to the bottom, competing with Chinese factory slaves in hopes that our minimum wage equals Chinese factory wages plus the cost of shipping their products here.

This Workers' Paradise, GOP style, is in that Christmas classic "It's a wonderful life," when Jimmy Stewart's character's guardian angel sends him to Potterville, the town his home town would have become if he'd never lived and the rich old skinflint who owned the town's biggest bank got to run the show--a town where $$$ and nothing else determine everything.

If you aren't familiar with the movie, just read Dickens' novels about life in the soot-blackened factory towns of 19th century England, where the factory owners lived like kings and everyone else lived like Oliver Twist. 

What a wonderful "Bah! Humbug!" gift to the citizens of Michigan.

I suppose it's sheer coincidence that the Democrats' main source of funding is unions. 

Naw, that can't be it. 

BTW, notice how whenever Republicans talk about FREEDOM it turns out to actually mean taking freedom from us and handing it to the 1%?
