Detroit City Council: Detroit Bankruptcy... LOOK! A SQUIRREL!

Detroit_ruins.jpg

As Detroit crumbles in financial ruin, the city council took on more important issues:

The Detroit City Council on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution calling for a federal investigation to see whether civil rights charges are warranted against George Zimmerman, who was acquitted July 13 of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.

1 Gee, do you think the Detroit City Council can spell "irrelevant?"

With the literacy rate in the city, I'm guessing no, however the each could possibly get one of their several aids to look it up....

3 Well the city council doesn't have much to do anymore if the fate of the city winds up in the hands of a federal bankruptcy judge, except wait until the debts are slashed to vote huge increases for the unions and to the unions back what was cut from them while refusing to pay bondholders because they must be racist white people who buy bonds to make money off of the backs of poor working minorities (/end sarcasm).

4 This town was deliberately put in this predicament by a bunch of sorry sonsofbitches who stole everything they could get their paws on. End of story. The Detroit voters put these bastards in office. Let it burn.

5 If we point out who has been running Detroit (into the ground) for the past 60 years;
That's raaasist right?

6 I guess we can't expect a group of morons who have trashed a once great city to be able to understand that the FBI has already DONE the civil rights investigation and found not a SHRED of evidence of racism, profiling or civil rights violations....BEEN DONE....LEAVE IT! Fix the crap you are wallowing in and leave another state alone!!

7 Never forget they are kissing Obama's ass to have the feds bail them out. They will do anything to please Obama who if he had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin.

I'm betting 3 to 1 the federal bailout will happen. Then Oakland and every other broke black majority in the nation will do the same. To get the money all he has to do is bring the troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Then he'll be a hero for doing both. Blacks like black Gods because black Gods give them things for nothing.

8 Like Detroit has the corner on righteousness and frugality as well as City Management and crime.
With nothing else pressing at the moment Detroit turns to instructing Florida and the rest of the United States on the rule of law and civil rights.
Detroit, an American wasteland.

9 @ # 7: so your saying.....Detroit is on top (or bottom) of Broke black mountain?

10 Broke black mountain. GOOD ONE. The problem is I know who going to take it in the $%# and they ain't black.
No city could survive 5 black mayors in a row. Can't be done. No way. WHY.
Because Black Mayors don't get elected because of their background in government, the ability at finance or success in business. They're elected because they are black. Some will consider that racist but It's the truth. Black politicians are elected because of what they say about whitey. Particularly the black women in Congress. They are far worse than the men. In the black community hate mongers get elected. In the white community hate mongers get the boot.

11 I just read that Detroit was once Americas richest city. I wonder if this before Detroit elected 5 unexperienced majors in a row.
Blame the auto industry? Ford's doing fine. The government says General Motors is on top again. Then whats the problem. I'll tell you what's the problem. The white, honky tax base moved out of the city.

12 The mayor of Detroit today brings lots of experience. On the basketball court.

13 How could Detroit be bankrupt and continue on with plans to build new 650 million dollar Hockey arena.

Did you know that Detroit has a horse shoe ferrier and doesn't have any horses. That's right the guy makes $56,000 per year and does nothing. The job is what they call union protected.
Why is Detroit broke?
