Money pours in to replace
hot dog vendor´s equipment
destroyed at Capitol

The Detroit News, by Chad Livengood

Viral Internet video and photographs of right-to-work protesters tearing down a tent and trashing a Lansing hot dog vendor´s catering equipment has sparked an online fundraising drive to help a man known by most as "the hot dog guy." During Tuesday´s mass demonstrations that attracted an estimated 10,000 to the Capitol lawn, protesters of the right-to-work law the Legislature was passing and voting on tore down a tent rented by the Michigan chapter of Americans for Prosperity. Witnesses and Internet videos show protesters, some wearing union clothes, using knives or box cutters to cut the tent´s ropes.

He had insurance, right? Let them pay and then subrogate against the responsible parties.

Glad to see this made the news. I guess the pot has really grown since I read a previous article where it was at $9,000.

This was the tent Fox News was working out of.... and the reporter was punched more than once. This is what Obozo wants to see nationwide....

and with all those Obamaphones out there, he can just send a text msg with when & where.... Just like Ayres & Code Pinko trained The American-Arab Spring coodinators to do.

He seems from the video and testimonials like such a nice man. He likes people and likes his job. What happened is so, so wrong. I hope he gets those donations. He deserves it.

If unions want to know why they´re so hated, they should look at themselves. Their greed and thuggery has made them irrelevant to the modern world. They act just like the jihadists. Any day now, I expect them to start murdering people to get their own greedy way.

Here´s the thing. Obama,thelft and media think they have won the national argument and have a mandate to shove far left ideology down our throats.

The left really can´t envision a peaceful co existence with conservatives,no more than Hamas can see one with Israel.Their last resort is violence and that´s why Egypt needs a close eye the next few days. Will the Morsi government use force to impose his way.
Big Islam and Big Left bullying are in full swing with Obama watching in glee.Community organizing is the only thing Obama´s good at and it´s concept is spreading worldwide with the use of technology.The Syrian rebels are getting their marching orders from western liberals.Just like the outsider mobs that got rid of Mubarak and Gadaffi.These were both fairly modern north African countries who had some basis of an economy.

Gadaffi was on the UN´s human rights commission one day and pulverized the next.

Wow. Thank you Detroit News & the OP for posting this. Even the many comments after the article were anti-union thuggery.

+ I watched the video of these things happening, and kept wondering: "Where are the police?" Where were the police???

#8, you make good comments. But, standard practice is double spacing after a period. Would you mind doing it so it is easier to read your comments.

Shouldn´t the protesters be more properly characterized as anti-right-to-work?

When a brain tumor took away Dorothy Holm´s ability to speak, she picked up index cards and began filling them, edge to edge, with seemingly random, indecipherable sequences of letters. Her grandchildren saw her scribbling and thought she was leaving them a code — but it was one the preteens couldn´t crack. Eighteen years later, the puzzle has been solved after one of Holm´s granddaughters posted images of a card online. In just 13 minutes, a MetaFilter.com user figured out that as Dorothy Holm was dying, she was writing out prayers.

US Icebreaker to Rescue
2 Ships in Antarctica
ABC News, by Rod McGuirk    Original Article
Posted By: barbcrose- 1/4/2014 9:44:05 PM     Post Reply
A U.S. Coast Guard heavy icebreaker will leave Australia for Antarctica on Sunday to rescue more than 120 crew members aboard two icebreakers trapped in pack ice near the frozen continent´s eastern edge, officials said. The 122-meter (399-foot) cutter, the Polar Star, is responding to a Jan. 3 request from Australia, Russia and China to assist the Russian and Chinese ships because "there is sufficient concern that the vessels may not be able to free themselves from the ice," the Coast Guard said in a statement. The Russian research ship Akademik Shokalskiy has been trapped in ice-clogged Commonwealth Bay

Supreme Court Refuses to
Block Texas Abortion Law

A sharply divided Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Texas to continue enforcing abortion restrictions that opponents say have led more than a third of the state´s clinics to stop providing abortions. The justices voted 5-4 to leave in effect a provision requiring doctors who perform abortions in clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The court´s conservative majority refused the plea of Planned Parenthood and several Texas abortion clinics to overturn a preliminary federal appeals court ruling that allowed the provision to take effect. The four liberal justices dissented.

Anthony Stokes, the 15-year-old boy whose family said he was initially denied a place on the heart transplant waiting list because of "noncompliance," has received a new heart. Anthony underwent the five-hour heart transplant surgery at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, family spokesman Mark Bell told ABC News. He is now resting and in recovery. "I would like to thank everyone involved, and that we will update everyone throughout the day," Melencia Hamilton, Anthony´s mother, said through Bell. Doctors reversed their decision to keep Anthony off the transplant list on Aug. 13.

White House blames fox for
destroying Michelle’s garden

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.

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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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
