    After the emergency powers act has been put into effect by the govenor of Michigan, giving him dictatorial power to change councimatic districts, without notice, fire publicly elected local politicians from their seats of office, and replace them with corporate cronies, an then go on a massive wave of union bashing,

    Yeah but if you live there, what can we do to help?

    A few years ago folks in New Orleans 9th ward said welcome to my world also

    but New Orleans and Delta; Black folks said they needed, this and they needed that and such and such, and Black folks across the nation regardless of affiliation , chipped in and sent, what ever they could, and by any mean necessary to help!!!

    So we across the nation supposed to just sit around and regionlize ourselves?

    While they chop us off one state and one city at time ?????

    This post was raised, not for journalism sake

    but for the sake of what we across the nation can figure out to do to send some help in this disaster .
