There's a lot going on in the world right now that's just plain ol' shitty (Wisconsin and the tsunami for example). And then a friend pointed out this Rachel Maddow video to me about the atrocity that's going down in Michigan. I was born and raised in the Mitt. My mom and many of my close friends still live there. If the Governor there actually gets to do the things he's setting out to do reported in this video, Michigan (my friends and family) will indeed be screwed.
Please watch this video. Educate yourself and spread the word.
