You're obviously already up to your neck in your party's flood waters.

What could possibly make you think I'd have any problem whatsoever living among people of a different color - as long as they were sane? Like I told you last night?

I'd have a much more difficult time living among people like you, frankly, and most other liberals.

Take a deep breath, you're about to go under.

Do any of these neanderthals understand why this happened?
Sure. The reason is that the City of Detroit kept borrowing money to pay current operating expenses. The tax base was gone and roughly half of all tax bills are unpaid. Property in Detroit is worth less than the taxes.

Meanwhile, municipal unions continued to live high on the hog.

And visa versa.
"A screaming mob of whites gathers in a public square, their placards proclaiming their hatred of blacks, their shouts of "N—-r!" reverberating and bouncing off the walls of nearby shops and homes like the ominous thunder of a coming storm. They loot shops that cater to blacks, and a prominent elected official is at the head of the mob, declaring that blacks are "a cancer" that must be eradicated.

No, it’s a recent scene in southern Tel Aviv, Israel, where Likud member of the Knesset Miri Regev – a former IDF spokesperson and prominent political figure – led a well-organized march of ultra-nationalists demanding the expulsion of all blacks from Israel."

"Mass. police officer releases photos of 'evil' Boston bombing suspect"
The editor-in-chief of Boston Magazine wrote in a post later on the publication’s website on Thursday that Murphy had been relieved of duty, but not fired. His status of duty was to reviewed next week, editor John Wolfson wrote.

Murphy, who described himself as a 25-year veteran of law enforcement, was relieved of his gun, badge, cameras, and police identification, according to Wolfson’s post. He was also reportedly ordered not to have any further communication with the press.

Yo, Boston PD-Do America a FAVOR--let the man publish his photographic Works of TRUTH and REALITY in peace!
And give the guy his RIGHTS back!

For Shame!

Obama ponders canceling Moscow talks with Putin
By JULIE PACE
AP White House Correspondent
WASHINGTON (AP)-- The White House is considering canceling a fall summit between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, a move that would further aggravate the already tense relationship between the two leaders.
The White House is dangling that option over the Russians as Moscow considers a temporary asylum petition from Edward Snowden, the American accused of leaking information about classified U.S. intelligence programs. But officials have privately signaled that scrapping the bilateral talks would also be retaliation for other areas of disagreement with Russia, including its continued support for Syrian President Bashar Assad's attacks against civilians.
Instead of the Magic Negro having a Hissy Fit, it would be far more productive for everyone if he just held his breath and turned blue.

Perhaps you should go back to where I posted the article telling about how the state's attorney hid the photos of Zimmerman's injuries from her sworn testimony and statement. Perhaps you can look up some articles of the person who leaked this being fired.

Don't White People Kill Each Other, Too?

And yet we keep hearing about black-on-black crime because it fits the false media narrative.

In fact, all races share similar ratios. Yet there's no outrage or racialized debate about "white on white" violence. Instead, the myth and associated fear of "black on black" crime is sold as a legitimate, mainstream descriptive and becomes American status quo.

The truth? As the largest racial group, whites commit the majority of crimes in America. In particular, whites are responsible for the vast majority of violent crimes. With respect to aggravated assault, whites led blacks 2-1 in arrests; in forcible-rape cases, whites led all racial and ethnic groups by more than 2-1. And in larceny theft, whites led blacks, again, more than 2-1.

Given this mathematical truth, would anyone encourage African Americans to begin shooting suspicious white males in their neighborhoods for fear that they'll be raped, assaulted or murdered? Perhaps George Zimmerman's defenders should answer that question. If African Americans were to act as irrationally as Zimmerman did, would any rationale suffice to avoid arrest?

It remains to be seen how the financial companies to whom Detroit owes billions will fair. But while much of borrowing the city engaged in under corrupt, jailed former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was ill-advised, the city also got swindled by Wall Street. Detroit paid nearly half a billion dollars in fees to firms for engineering financial products that were bound to hurt the city, because the world’s biggest banks were manipulating a key interest rate underlying those products. Similar bank manipulation in Alabama eventually forced JP Morgan Chase to cancel billions of dollars of debts the city of Birmingham never should have owed.
Because bankruptcy proceedings are effectively a zero-sum game, the financial firms and pension funds owed vast sums by Detroit are at odds.

There are 30,000 citizens in the pension system, and their lawyer has argued that those current and retired workers should be favored over financial companies.“Planning for retirement and working for employers was not an investment into the market,” Michael VanOverbeke told the New York Times in June, whereas municipal bonds carry “a certain amount of risk.”

A bankruptcy judge will decide and both parties will take a hit.

Of course, many of the bondholders are other pension funds.

Detroit is just the first Democratic-infested city to drown under the rising waters. 98% of them still voted for Obama and a convicted criminal was voted into a position of leadership in the city.

Ignoring the flood that's coming isn't a good idea.

Drowning cities should be warnings.

By the way, bankruptcy could have been avoided if all parties had agreed to a settlement that included both bond losses and pension benefit reductions.

We're trying to warn you what's coming. Detroit is just the first Democratic-infested city to drown under the rising water.
It's not about it being Democratically run, anymore than you could you blame the Republican governor. It's bout losing their tax base as the auto industry declined, it's basically akin to the plague that befell Europe, as populations were devastated the entire system collapsed.

This is another reason Homer is in favor of not only making illegals legal but making it easier to immigrate to the U.S., we need to keep a growing, thriving population, civilizations throughout history that do not continue to grow eventually wither and die. Probably why the Chinese have been around since ancient times.
