Leading Indicator?

When Nina Totenberg is calling affirmative action “racial preferences,” affirmative action is in trouble.

Couldn’t be better, it always was nothing but a scam of the victimology crowd.

Taking Blue To The Extreme

How Detroit Went Bankrupt

The story of Detroit’s decline has been told and retold so many times now that you’d be forgiven for assuming there’s nothing more to say. But the Detroit Free Press has put together a new, comprehensive financial history of the city from 1950 to the present, gleaned from tens of thousands of pages of archival data on the city’s finances. It provides a much clearer picture of the city’s collapse than anything we’d seen before.

It appears that the city took all of the hallmarks of blue governance to extremes. For years, it tried to address its revenue shortfall by raising taxes, which drove residents out of the city and shrunk the tax base in the process. Detroit lost 61 percent of its residents between 1950 and 2010, and the total value of its property fell from a peak of $45 billion to $9.6 billion in 2012. Meanwhile, even as the city’s revenue base was imploding, public employee benefits remained generous and in some cases even expanded.

The Free Press notes that there were a few periods of hope during thee postwar period when the city’s finances were relatively strong, but each time the city squandered these opportunities and used its good standing to borrow more rather than address the core problems that got it in the mess in the first place. . . . The city has paid a heavy price. Today, Detroit has more pensioners than employees, and a debt that is more than twice what it had in 1960. It spends considerably more on police and fire retirees than active workers. And despite the fact that the city has the highest income and property taxes in Michigan—by a wide margin—the state’s inflation-adjusted revenue is lower than it was in 1960.

And the similarites to Obomba??? Do the math.

Oh No Not More Speeches: BS, More BS, More BS

July 25, 2013

If I had a country it would look like Detroit!!!

Ready for recovery summer, reruns. When the Pressy goes out on the campaign trail and focuses like a laser on jobs —- speeches? And does noting. Focusing on the middle is nothing more than doing what the did in Detroit. If I had a country it would look like Detroit.

Hey even the media thinks it’s funny that, the Pressy is giving speeches against what the Pressy has done for the last five years … destroy the middle class workers.

Have you ever had a job that made you enough money that you had enough left over to start a company with.

What Liberalism Has Done To Detroit

July 23, 2013

Detroit was one the home of the shinning city on the hill. Then the Democrats took over in 1967 and look what you have become: 25 Facts About The Fall Of Detroit That Will Leave You Shaking Your Head

Back in 1960, the city of Detroit actually had the highest per-capita income in the entire nation. And then 60 of the population left … Today less than half of the residents of Detroit over the age of 16 are working at this point.

What America is heading towards, under socialist Democrat rule.

And remember a judge halted the bankruptcy, because it would dishonor Obama. A monument to Obama …

peewee

 

How many more cities will go POP?

Save me, like you did Detroit, before the election!!!

Michigan Judge Halts Detroit Bankruptcy Because It Dishonors Obama

July 21, 2013

Do we care ???

It’s come to this … Ingham County judge rules Detroit bankruptcy be withdrawn; Schuette appeals … Shining city on the hill goes from brightest light, to lights out in one progressive lesson. It’s been all democrats all the time.

From The Detroit News:

“Government in Detroit somehow worse than thought.” So I assume the judge will pay for Detroit’s ills???

Aquilina, who granted the restraining order, clearly was irked.

Prior to her ruling on Friday, she criticized the Snyder administration and Attorney General’s Office for what appeared to be hasty action to outflank pension board attorneys.

“It’s cheating, sir, and it’s cheating good people who work,” the judge told assistant Attorney General Brian Devlin. “It’s also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroit’s auto companies) out of bankruptcy.”

Aquilina said she would make sure President Obama got a copy of her order.

“I know he’s watching this,” she said, predicting the president ultimately will have to take action to make sure existing pension commitments are honored.

She’s essentially threatening to tattle on the governor by faxing a copy of her order to Our National Father, whose dignity is on the line as the fate of America’s most notorious experiment in pure progressive government is decided.
