Power to the People: Save Michigan

Thousands of people took to the Michigan Capital in Lansing today as the State Senate took up its lame-duck session rush bill to pass the ALEC pushed "Right to Work" legislation, undoing decades of hard fought victories on behalf of working people. Estimates of the crowd size ranged from 10-15,000 by 10am, and the Capital itself was shut down when it hit capacity of over 2000.

Put yourself in this scenario... Your husband and daughter go to India for a spiritual retreat. While in a hotel in a picturesque location and practicing meditation, crazed terrorists storm the place and massacre that killed and/or injured hundreds of people. Your husband and daughter are among the dead. I know, it's something that none of us even want to imagine.

Tonight, I spoke with Master Charles Cannon, founder of the Synchronicity Foundation. [...]
