Detroit-area Pastors urge Michiganders to oppose right-to-work

Dec 8, 2012 Full story: Detroit Free Press 21

As much as we'd like to think otherwise, the odds are pretty good that someone won't use the gift... Reverend Charles Williams II speaks at a small protest that took place Saturday afternoon at the Capitol in Lansing.

Dear Pastor:
Stick to preaching your religion and stay out of politics. I don't remember reading anything in the Bible about Jesus walking around Nazareth stirring up political unrest. I'm pretty sure he was more concerned with the souls of man. Preaches: concentrate on leading your flock to God.

Jesus was a liberal and unions protect ALL workers! It is the rightwingnutball churches that have been sticking their hateful anti-Christ politics into our government. V is for Vagina is also under attack by the RepUGLYcon governor and his corporate cronies illegally forcing their wacked out religion into our state laws. The true followers of Christ's teaching are correct in their protest of the rtw stupidity because it sends good people into poverty.
The vile filth that is the rightwing will NOT be tolerated or allowed to go on hurting families to benefit the selfish whims of plutocrats! We voted AGAINST fascism on Nov. 6! We are legion! The "tipping point" of inequality in this country is already Over the Top! We know this. The Greedy GOP will learn it the hard way! French Revolution style, if necessary.

There is nothing faith based about unions. Their false pride shows through just like with all socialists. They simply want a big government to pay their way because they are incapable to do it themselves.
Unions leech off taxpayers, kill jobs and industries and they are just as responsible for this nations deficit and poor economy as obama is.
As a matter of fact, they are 2 peas in a pod.

Jesus was a rebel. They crucified him. If you don't like what father says, don't listen. He's entitled the same rights as you,me, and any other incorporated "people"

Lower wages and more jobs equals less people paying taxes. You know like walmart employees. 30% of them qualify for food stamps or other gov assistance. You and me pay walmart employees way. While the walton family made 16BILLION DOLLARS! RTW is a just a faster track in the race to the bottom. The rich will realize this when our consumer driven economy no longer has any consumers.

More people working = more taxes paid.

unions soaking taxpayer money = less money...

and more bills.

unions are not taxpaying organizations. They free-ride on the taxpayers coat tails to survive.

Unions are job insurance for underachievers.

If you can't compete, join a union and force your employer to pay you more than you are worth and remove merit pay increases. That's why public school teacher unions NEVER want to allow merit pay. Most of us have to get up every day and prove to our employer that we are worth what they are paying us. Union people don't, and won't allow it.

Admitting to union membership is admitting to pathetic underachievement.

Now they can all start work immediately making protest signs and YouTube dancing videos. Get those resumes updated and pick up something tight at the Suit Warehouse.
Prepare answers for some standard questions.

1. Where do I see myself in five years and what do I want to be doing.

2. What can I do to be productive for the company right now?

3. Why did you leave you last job?

4. Is there any reason you might not be successful at this job?

Do not ask:

1. What are my benefits?
2. How many vacation and sick days am I allowed?
3. Do we work on holidays?
4. How long before I can expect a raise?
5. When are the break times?
