To the Journal editor:
Here's to that "tough nerd" Gov. Rick Snyder and those fearless Michigan Republicans who bravely skirted democracy by undoing over a century's worth of progress for the working class of this state like thieves in the night by invoking "right to work" without so much as a committee discussion.
Hey Snyder, in a democracy, the idea is for all sides to be heard, especially the minority. Did the Democratic minority really scare you so much that you were afraid to hear them talk inside the halls of the Legislature?
Well, guess what, Republicans, your moves against this state's democracy have given the union movement a new motivation.
We'll be talking loud and fighting back from now until 2014 at which time we'll all be on the Capitol steps bidding you a fond farewell.
Enjoy your Pyrrhic victory while it lasts.
