Today's Moment of Bliss

Ron Burgundy: Brick, what are you eating? 
Brick Tamland: Oh, it is one of those delicious falafel hot dogs with cinnamon and bacon on top. 
Ron Burgundy: What do you mean "one of those?" Those don't exist... that's a used coffee filter with cigarette butts on it.

Wage Confiscating Unions Get Violent

Remember back in 2010, when a Tea Party rally of 3,000 would have one moron get caught with a stupid a sign and the press would describe the whole rally as "angry," "racist," with "violent overtones?"

Michelle Malkin is covering the happenings in Michigan this week.  The legislature there passed bills making MI a right-to-work state, and Gov. Snyder signed it into law.  Thus, Unions now will actually need to have their membership deicide to join the Union.  They will have to convince workers that they are getting a value commensurate with the dues they are paying to join.  The Union won't simply be able to confiscate a portion of every employee's paycheck, regardless of whether they like the Union, think the Union is working in their best interest, etc.

As a result of this legislation, Unions are out demonstrating, in a largely peaceful fashion, according to the MSM.

Michelle Malkin captures the reality of these "peaceful" demonstrations.

JoAnn Watson: Thank you for your service

As you can see in this article (and please do watch the video), JoAnn Watson has publicly called for "leadership" out of Detroit's city government.  What is "leadership," you may ask?  Creating incentives for businesses to invest in Detroit and rebuild its woeful economy, and hence, its tax base?

Nope.  Leadership means going to Washington to get some "quid pro quo" in return for the city's denizens supporting the reelection of Barack Obama.  As she terms it, "bringing home the bacon."   She also gets in a little historical footnote, recalling when Mayor Coleman Young successfully, er, leveraged his relationship with President Carter.

Personally, I feel that JoAnn Watson has done a public good here.  Not in lowering politics to city-level electioneering.   But in being honest, clear, and direct.  Our politicians (the "good ones", anyway) have become paid actors, adept in obfuscation and half-truths.   I can live with JoAnn Watson asking D.C. for a Dem GOTV payback if it allows some sunlight into the dark back-rooms of the American political establishment.  If the American public is given enough truth, I am confident that this approach to politics (as well as other forms of radical redistribution) will be rejected.  And if not, the fault lies squarely on the shoulders of our citizens.
