Ed Schultz on Michigan Gov't Takeover: An "All-Out Assault" on the Voting Rights of Black Voters
After being granted the power to do so by the legislative, Michigan governor Rick Snyder has already appointed "emergency managers" to four Michigan cities, thereby invalidating the power of local voters, elected officials, and governing boards--and now he has his eye on Detroit. Sounds fishy? It should--particularly when you notice that the cities being targeted by this move are almost all majority Africa-American, which means black citizens in particular are being disenfranchised.

Hey Michiganders. =)
I received this message from a local MoveOn member.
Four bills introduced to the Michigan House on Nov. 3, 2011 (House Bills 5149-5151 and 4736) must be passed to protect the largest source of above-ground freshwater in the world, the Great Lakes and their feeder water system inside the State of Michigan, from use by hydraulic fracturing companies seeking to drill for natural gas in Michigan shale. A moratorium must delay drilling until impact studies are completed by the EPA and Michigan's Department of Natural Resources and Department of Environmental Quality.
So I signed a petition to The Michigan State House, The Michigan State Senate, Governor Rick Snyder, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate and President Barack Obama, which says:
"Natural gas hydraulic fracture drilling must be delayed to await impact studies by the EPA and environmental agencies inside states where drilling is to be carried out."
This is where you can find the petition if interested.
