Police spray mace, arrest
Mich. right-to-work protesters

Detroit Free Press, by Paul Egan and Kathleen Gray

Original Article

Posted By:hoosier observer, 12/6/2012 3:49:14 PM

Police arrested several protesters and sprayed mace into the crowd in the state Capitol on Thursday as lawmakers discussed right-to-work legislation that would make Michigan the nation´s 24th right-to-work state. The protesters were arrested as they tried to rush the Senate floor, said Michigan State Police Inspector Gene Adamczyk. "When several of the individuals rushed the troopers, they used chemical munitions to disperse the crowd," he said. "It would be a lot worse if someone gets hurt and I failed to act."

"Police spray mace on Obama supporting union hooligans seeking to disrupt legislature´s consideration of worker freedom law"

There is the correct headline. But then, what else would one expect from the Detroit Freek [sic] Press than the original topper.

And don´t forget that Michigan voters turned down a union-backed amendment to the state constitution that would have, in effect, made union membership compulsory.

Right-to-work does improve economic conditions and helps workers because it cuts off the money that union officers illegally direct to dhimmicrats from union dues and "service" fees.

More union violence, but that is played down. Of course if it had been a Tea Party demonstration where they were just standing there, the media would have manufactured violence and racism.

I wonder if the drop in union membership will be similar to Wisconsin´s. I believe their teachers´ union lost one half its members.

The cake is already baked-it will pass. Snyder would not have allowed it to come up otherwise and it will happen quickly. The MEA (teachers union)is toast. There is another law coming allowing for unlimited charter schools. Should be a fun month!

Gov. Mike Pence has signed a bill pulling Indiana from the reading and math education standards adopted by most states around the country. The governor´s office says Pence signed on Monday the proposal approved by legislators requiring the State Board of Education to draft new standards outlining what students should be learning in each grade rather than using the Common Core standards currently in place. Pence said in a statement he believed Indiana´s students are best served by education decisions made at the state and local level.

Pontiac, Mich. -- A mummified body was found in a garage of a Pontiac, Michigan, home. Investigators found her body in a vehicle that was parked in the garage and believe it has been there for at least six years. Even more puzzling is voting records show that the woman voted in November 2010 but investigators believe she died in 2008. The clerk for the city is blaming it on a computer error but her family thinks there was foul play and that she did not die from natural causes.

The proposed ban now heads to the Indiana Senate, where members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are set to take up the issue. The vote followed weeks of uncertainty for a measure that swept through the General Assembly with ease just three years ago.

A federal judge in South Bend has provided some last minute relief to a host of Catholic entities across northern Indiana. A preliminary injunction blocks enforcement of the so-called “contraceptive mandate” in the federal government’s Affordable Care Act. As a result, the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne now has what the University of Notre Dame was denied: Court ordered protection for employees from the contraception mandate due to take effect January 1st.

Michael McRobbie says the university plans to withdraw immediately as an ASA institutional member, saying such boycotts have a profound chilling effect on academic freedom. He says universities must be clear and unequivocal in rejecting them.

Richmond, Va. – The Chesterfield Marine who claimed he was wrongfully detained over posts he made to Facebook has filed a civil rights lawsuit against Chesterfield Police officers and other government workers, according to his attorneys from The Rutherford Institute. They claim Brandon Raub’s First and Fourth Amendment Rights were violated when FBI agents appeared at Raub’s Chesterfield home last summer. Raub claims the agents questioned him about his Facebok postings on the government’s version of 9/11 and the role of the Federal Reserve.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
