How does RealDave feel about Harrisburg, a textbook example of government mismanagement?
Guess we should just keep shoveling money to proven incompetents.
DEEtroit, meet Caliphonyvrokia stuhaisle po'li'Tics!!

Detroit has a $327 million budget deficit and faces more than $14 billion in long-term debt. It has been making ends meet on a month-to-month basis with the help of bond money held in a state escrow account. The city has also instituted mandatory unpaid days off for many city workers.

Those troubles, along with underfunded city services such as police and fire departments and the absence of legitimate turnaround plans from Bing and the City Council, forced his hand, Snyder said.

"Citizens are not getting the services they deserve and need, public safety, lighting, transportation — all those areas need help, and it's time to call all hands on deck and say let's all work together."

Snyder said he has a top candidate picked out for the emergency manager job, but he would not elaborate except to say the person had "strong financial" and "strong legal knowledge."

Emergency managers have the power under state law to develop financial plans, renegotiate labor contracts, revise and approve budgets to help control spending, sell off some city assets and suspend the salaries of elected officials.

How Are The Liberals Re-writing History And Teaching Lies To Our Children?
How can we know anything about anything? That's the real question
div>Liberals today are trying to change the history of America by leaving God out of it, but the truth is, God has been a part of this nation, since the beginning. He still wants to be.
When I was in college, I started taking history classes thinking that I would surely see the hand of God in History. I never saw the hand of God in history the way that they presented history at the university. Years later, I did see many patterns in history, patterns that showed that God is working in the lives of men. The history that was taught in those college classrooms was scoured of any evidence of God, though. Even the great events of history such as the crusades have been distorted to give a false impression of what took place. The vision given to Christopher Columbus by God had already been carefully scrubbed from the history texts when I was a boy in the 1950s. One of the patterns in the crusades, the war against terror, the second world war and many other historical events seems to be that when anti-Christian leaders command their followers to attack the innocent, terrible things happen.
Liberal minds have a problem when it comes to truth, because a true liberal doesn't believe in truth or lie, only in winning or losing. Bill Clinton brought it down to this: It depends what you mean when you say, "is." A liberal politician who got caught harassing a man who worked for him with repeated unwanted romantic advances said that each person must find his or her own reality. They used to be more subtle, but now we are hearing the bold claim that, "What actually happened makes no real difference." Liberals have a high respect for skilled liars. Liars who are not as smooth but not to the same high degree.
At the same time that liberals will accept almost anything as "proof" of liberal principles, they will reject even the most compelling proof anything that is not liberal.
Truth, from the standpoint of a liberal, has little meaning other than to that particular liberal. This is why liberals don't require any internal consistency of their politicians and heroes. Liberals Are Fine Without Truth. They are making up their morality as they go along.
"I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level preschool day care or large state university."

That's how I see this president. He doesn't see this country as his home. It's more of an experiment to test his personal vision. If everything is destroyed in the process, oh well. He has no personal connection or vestment in it anyway.
In fact, I think he even resents the "home" he was given charge over. That's my honest opinion.

Carol,

You're an ignorant woman who is too clueless to create a new screen profile on Topix and instead continues to engage in a stupid battle of wits, not realizing she's unarmed and merely encouraging her personal troll.

We've got the Waxturd crew doing the same to the entire thread, yet Carol tries to play the victim, as if her troll is the only one here.

You're only here for the attention, at least your troll gives you something to talk about.

How do you know it's a man?? Could be anyone, likely Nobraina.

so the crisis started with Clinton and continued unabated for the 6 years Congress was ruled by Republicans.

what is it about that 6 years that just has to be ignored by FOXbots? please explain.

and....

Fox News host Megyn Kelly repeatedly pushed the false narrative that President Obama's 2013 budget proposal received zero votes in the Senate, which is controlled by Democrats. In reality, the Senate did not vote on Obama's real budget, but on shell legislation introduced by Republicans in order to "embarrass" Democrats.

Discussing current budget negotiations on America Live, Kelly claimed President Obama's budget proposal received zero votes when the Senate voted on it earlier this year. Kelly said, "The Democrats in the Senate didn't have the courage to pass it. What makes you think the Republicans would?" and concluded, "A proposal's meaningless unless you [have] support for it. He can't even get support from his own party."

Kelly's assertion is a deceptive revision of history. In May, the Senate did vote 99-0 against a nonbinding budget resolution, but this was not Obama's full budget. Instead, Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions introduced his own, much shorter version of Obama's plan, which included the same figures as Obama's plan for spending, revenue, and deficits, but none of his specific policy proposals. As ABC's Jake Tapper reported, "The Sessions legislation was 56 pages long; actual budgets are closer to 2,000 pages long."

Republicans then forced the Senate to vote on Sessions' version of Obama's plan to "embarrass Democrats and the White House," as the Associated Press put it.

WILL OBAMA LIE AGAIN wrote:
In an effort to remove the hot-potato issue of excessive government spending from the 2012 presidential campaign, and calling the bluff of congressional Republicans who always seem to favor domestic spending cuts but increased military spending, President Obama suggested the concept of "sequester" in late 2011.
His idea was to reduce the rate of increased spending by 2 percent across the board—on domestic and military spending. To his surprise, the Republicans went along with this. They did so either because they lacked the political fortitude and the political will to designate specifically the unconstitutional and pork barrel federal spending projects to be cut, or because they thought that with the debt of the federal government then approaching $15 trillion (it is now $16.6 trillion and growing), any reductions in spending money the government doesn't have are preferred to no reductions. So, instead of enacting a budget, and instead of recognizing that much of its spending is simply not authorized by the Constitution, Congress enacted the so-called sequester legislation, and the president signed it into law.
The reductions the sequesters require are reductions in the rate of increased spending from those originally planned by Obama and authorized by Congress. Since the federal government has not had a budget in four years, even though federal law requires it to have one every year, these are planned expenditures, not budgetary items, on which the president wants to spend more money. Congress does not feel bound to obey the laws it has written; hence it has disregarded the legal requirement of a budget. Without a budget, the president has great leeway as to how to allocate funds within each department of the executive branch of the federal government.
Nevertheless, even if these sequesters do kick in, the feds will spend more in 2013 than they spent in 2012. That's because the sequesters are not cuts to spending; rather, they are reductions in planned increases in spending. The reductions amount to about two cents for every planned dollar of increased spending for every federal department.
The question remains: What part of each federal department (Justice, Defense, Homeland Security, Agriculture, etc.) will suffer these reduced increases? Here is where this sequester experiment gets dicey.
The president—who once championed the idea of sequesters and even threatened to veto any congressional effort to dismantle them—now has decided he can't live without that additional 2 percent to spend. So, he has gone about the country trying to scare the daylights out of people: Prisoners will be released from federal prisons, soldiers won't have enough bullets in their weapons, we will need to endure five-hour waiting lines at the airports, Social Security checks will be late, and similar nonsense.
