3.17.11 Bee-otch of the Day: Rick Snyder


Name: Rick Snyder
Age: 52
Occupation: multi-millionaire
Last Seen: Lansing, MI 

Bee-otched For: pissing way too many people off      


It's official: we're screwed.

On Wednesday afternoon, Michigan governor Rick Snyder proved to the state that he's nothing more than a CEO in charge as he signed into law six bills that would allow emergency financial managers running cities and schools to strip people of their union contracts. Many Democrats and union supporters felt that Snyder's bill would create dictatorships and force local leaders out of office.

While Snyder was pissing off unions, 3,000-plus people were protesting at the Capitol, angered at the fact that Snyder would strip unions' rights while preserving the finances of the state's billionaires. As a matter of fact, according to Michael Moore's Twitter, Snyder was at an insurance company's headquarters congratulating them on $100 billion in assets.

Also, it's worth noting that there were some arrests, including five young adults that were still in the Capitol when it was closing down for the day. Jonathan Jones, a Kalamazoo Valley Community College student who was arrested said "if I don't have moral integrity, what do I have?"

It's true: Rick Snyder's a man with no morals. He relied on Granholm haters to elect him since the right attacked her for years. The truth is - and I'm tired of saying this - it's jerkoffs like Reagan, the two Bushes, Engler and eventually Snyder who are destroying this once great state. The solution isn't to screw the middle class, it's to convince the wealthy that they don't need too much money to survive. Our state has people like Meijer, DeVos and Ford to help us out. If they don't want to budge, it'll only make them more evil and make us all want to avoid their products.

Remember, it was the Democrats who saved the auto industry. We bought GM and now it's profitable. Same as Chrysler. I want Michigan to come back, but all Snyder is doing is popping champagne bottles with his CEO buddies. Look, I'll be 30 in May, and it's time for me to grow up and move on. Thanks to the Repukes, I haven't had a raise in years and my apartment could be better. However, I'm in better shape than many people who went from making $30 at GM to $9.32 an hour at Walmart at 35 hours per week who are about to lose their homes.

Once again, here's another phrase I'm tired of using, but it'll be useful for the next four years: don't blame me, I've never voted for a Republican.
