Lansing — Without ceremony, Gov. Rick Snyder said he signed two bills tonight making Michigan the nation´s 24th right-to-work state. Both he public sector and private sector bills have been signed,” Snyder said in announcing the development at the start of a 5:45 p.m. press conference. “This is a major day in Michigan’s history," Snyder said. "I don’t view this as anti-union at all. I view this as pro-worker.” The House first approved House Bill 4003, 58-51, establishing a right-to-work law for public sector unions. A second bill, Senate Bill 116, which applies to private sector unions, was approved

It took a lot of courage by those who got it done.

Democrats apoplectic, threatening and committing violence, proving that "pro-choice" to the American left is limited to baby-killing and nothing else.

MI women are finally getting freedom of choice.

I recently heard the Las Vegas cocktail waitresses referred to as ´´Golden Girls´´ as they cannot be fired and only quit their tip-laden jobs when they can no longer navigate the casino aisles with their walkers. Sort of reminds me of stewardesses working for Air Canada. So unions can be a big plus for their members.

LOL-#3. I remember when I decided to never go back to Caesar´s Palace in Vegas when I realized that I would look better in the waitresses cocktail dress than she did. Michigan is toast regardless of this effort. What company in their right mind would move here. Indiana will be the Texas of the Midwest, gathering in jobs and employers.

I´m a teacher in northern MI.

Most of my colleagues know I am a conservative. While a vast majority were quiet and professional today in school, one called me a "rat f*****", and another told me I was a "hypocritical bas****" for working in the schools.

As I told them, ´stay classy, Democrats´

I applaud the Republicans and Governor Snyder. RESULTS not rhetoric or whining. It was fun to watch the shocked faces of the union thugs. #7, God bless you. You demonstrated which teachers really care for the kids AND your state. It must have been hard to keep from grinning real real big all day!

Rush had an excellent point today. Unions complain about "freeloaders" who reap union benefits without paying dues. Yet the 50% who pay no taxes, reap benefits from the U.S. Treasury, as do the illegal immigrants.

If only the dim dems and union thugs would have a "duh" moment. Have to chuckle at their argument about "ramming legislation". Now that is a true Demonrat strategy.

This plus the Federal judge saying that the "concealed carry" carry ban in Illinois is un-Constitutional are real pluses after Nov. 6th. Don´t make up for it, but still good. There is hope.

Way to go! For years, union thugs have been stealing union dues from unwilling members and using the money to support democrat politicians who enable the union thugs. Finally, we are fixing the problem at the source.

I moved from a non right to work state, NY, and now live in a right to work state, Fl. What a difference. My taxes are so much lower here. The services are much better here. Houses are cheaper and people are much more polite than they were in NY. MI will be better off as a right to work state.

I have a picture of myself with Gov. Snyder and I am proud that he has done what is good for the people of the State of Michigan. The Unions are off the free ride and now have to earn their members respect and worth to keep collecting those dues.

I laugh. The Union workers took the day off, paid I am sure, to protest the Right to Work law. As a former MEA member, 20 years ago.. They extorted 500.00 yearly from me. I am happy for Michigan.

Unions in NY, a non-RTW state, bankrupts every business they get their claws into. Town, County, State workers barely work 3 hours a day because of unions. Every County is in financial stress because of state mandates and unions. State goobermint, run by demonrats, always, always follow the CA model of spend, spend, spend.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
