When protective bargaining wins, we ALL winThe Protect Our Jobs coalition, also known as Protect Working Families, is working to pass a ballot initiative that would put protections for collective bargaining in the state constitution. This group just released a new television ad that shows how collective bargaining helped save that domestic auto industry in America. See the ad after the jump.
You SURE you want that message?Last night at the Republican Convention in Tampa, multiple speakers got up to tell us how much America sucks right now. Despite an economy that is recovering, they stood under a giant debt clock and declared "We built this". It's an odd message, given how responsible Republicans are FOR that national debt. Yeah, you built that. Proof and much more commentary after the jump.
We ALL approve this messageA new video out from the group We Approve This Message does an amazing job of showing how there used to be great Republican leaders, even presidents, who looked out for the interests of America and Americans. And how that is no longer true. The video is one of the most powerful pieces I've seen in a long time and features an image by Eclectablog's very own Anne C. Savage. Video and more after the jump.
May justice be servedThe Ingham County Circuit Court has chosen to convene a one-person grand jury to investigate the election fraud misdeeds of Michigan House Speaker Jase Bolger and newly-minted Republican House caucus member Roy Schmidt. This same type of arrangement was used recently to investigate fraudulent behavior by Democrats to run fake tea party candidates and resulted in convictions. The justice that will investigate is Ingham County Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina who was chosen by random draw. More after the jump.
Heh, heh...The latest video from the Obama campaign pokes fun at what they call "Romney Economics". Seems like they are enjoying the Republican National Convention as much at the Ron Paul supporters are not... Watch it after the jump.
It's time to get this doneNow that the ballot initiative to make collective bargaining rights part of the state constitution has been ordered placed on the November ballot, it's time for Democrats around the state to make sure it passes handily. As part of that effort, the Protect Working Families (formerly Protect Our Jobs) alliance is conducting forums across the state to ensure people are educated and engaged in making that happen. This Thursday, August 30, 2012 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Ann Arbor Second Baptist Church, 850 Red Oak Road, one such forum is being held in Washtenaw County. Details after the jump.
If everyone in the US voted...Anne has started a new meme called "If everyone in the US voted..." Combined with her eye-catching photos, it's designed to show how things could be different if only everyone voted. Share around on Facebook, pin it on Pinterest. Join in on the fun! (And make sure everyone you know is registered to vote! Great site for that here: GottaRegister.com.) Here's the latest edition: Larger image after the jump.
