Michigan Protest Photos – Beautiful, Caring People!

It was so awesome to be amongst the thousands of protesters in Lansing today. I have to say with all sincerity, liberals and progressives are the kind people in our country. I’m not saying there aren’t any kind Republicans…misguided as they may be, but whenever I get a chance to hang with fellow democrats and independents at these sort of events, I’m always blown away at how polite and nice people are. They are genuinely concerned for their fellow humans and I didn’t experience a single rude person.  Whatever the case, progressives and liberals are great people. Here are a couple of photos from the event, if I get ambitious later, after work, I’ll put up a clip or two. Peace, Love and Understanding…

  2. How many of theses people took sick days to attend. They should be fired, Oh Wait, you can’t fire a union worker for not doing their job. Ever consider the non productive government employee is part to blame for states being broke.

    In Michigan, the democrats did such a great job of governing. They were successful in developing Detroit into a roll model city, just like LBJ promised.

    • So maybe I’m wrong, but I thought you were from Atlanta, Georgia USA….is there an Atlanta over in the old Soviet block that I’m not aware of? Weird, I thought you were an American, not that there is anything wrong with you being from a totalitarian state, that’s cool too. It’s your choice if you want to live in a dictatorship where workers are fired for exercising their constitutional rights. Here in America, we have this thing called “The Bill of Rights”. The first amendment reads like this…

      Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    • I guess being from a different country, Ralph, you can be excused for not knowing much about Michigan politics. Although we had a great Democratic Governor, Jen Granholm, she was dealing with a Republican State Legistlature…a pretty nutty one too. But all Republicans seem to be pretty nutty these days.

      I’m proud to live in Michigan and I understand that a lot of non-Michiganers think that the only city in Michigan is Detroit. We’ve had this discussion before, Ralph and you really don’t want to come to Michigan. Please, just stay away.

  3. Been to Michigan many times but wouldn’t want to live there, too cold.

    As to the peaceful assembly, why not do it on a Saturday when you are off and not abuse the taxpayer by having a rally instead of working. That really would be too much to ask, government union workers do something on their own time. No wonder this country is in such financial trouble with the government union workers motto Take form the other guy but leave mine alone.
