Not a dictstorship

Michigan has multiple nuclear reactors, one of which is the same model as the facility currently causing mayhem in Japan.  Meanwhile, Michigan's governor is making a power grab to blight local governance.

Our current governor (for how long?) is unashamedly selling out the working class for the benefit of the rich.  No surprise there, that's been Republican's M.O. for my whole life.  Spineless Democrats with no fight in them are no less pathetic or reprehensible, but the outright exploitation perpetrated by the GOP surely is more focused, debased form of political scumbaggery.  Sigh.  I guess the signs say it better.
