Does Suicide Intervention violate the rights of suicidal azzholes?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA......
Detroiters have long gloated over their voting black racist crooks into office for over 50 years now and, as a result, causing the city's rapid decline. Go figure.
In the interim, the city has repeatedly been running to Lansing for money in many different forms. This means that out-state taxpayers have been forced to fund Detroit's criminal behavior for more than 50 years.
$18 Billion in Affirmative Action Style Stupidity!
This governor rightfully decided that it is time that it stopped and he has the legal right as governor to fix a broken black problem. He did the responsible thing as an adult because the juvenile Detroit 'leadership' never grew up.
Here we go again, you say blacks are incompetent. Racist f*ck that you are.

I thought you right whiners were all about democracy.

Michigan is a top ten ten with the most debt.

How would you right whiney azzholes think if Obama declared Michigan a state of emergency & sent Rahm Emanuel to be king of Michigan?

You would have a GD fit. " OMG OMG Obama is taking away the vote of the people! OMG OMG OMFG"

This is why you people are dumber than sh*t.

What is your point? No one said Clinton never had debt, dumbass. The point being he left office with a surplus that Bush turned into massive debt.
Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to that surplus.

The debt when the Arabs started a global war with the United States was 5 trillion dollars.
The debt when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of the US government was 8.5 trillion.

Here's a link to a document that describes in detail how the government is funded and borrows money:

Get back with us on who is responsible for the debt after you educate yourself on the matter, dufus.

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.
Perhaps you can actually get off your ass and look. All you have to do is read my posts and you'll see some links.
Or, you can just use google, you fucking moron.

When President Bush took office on Jan. 20, 2001, the S&P 500 stock market index stood at 1,342.54.
The day President Bush left office, it was 805.22, a drop of 40 percent

The net result of a bailout would be to delay the bankruptcy for a while, but Detroit will still lack the funds for current expenses.

I would move there. Imagine living in a city with no government and no right-wingers (too little government, too many brown people)!
Possibly, once the debts are resolved.

Would you privatize ALL services, and even then, where would you get the money to pay for them?

Classic! Of course they were doing something wrong! They're black, walking, driving, shopping, jogging....all illegal if you're black.
You're ignorance is astounding. Anyway, the VP of NBC, Val Nichols spoke on Hardball last night, as well as Michael Steele; about their experiences with police because of their color.
Take a look and a listen; or will you just say "they're just being sensitive"?
http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3036697/ns/msnbc-ha...
So are you seriously saying black people are the ONLY ones who have a right to feel they're the ONLY ones being treated unfairly by the police?

The overly sensitive reaction and overreaction by black leaders alone tells the story.

Sometimes I can't believe my ears when Travis Smiley and Al Sharpton say some of the unbelievably outrageous things they say.

But how do you feel about Barack Obama telling the Benghazi survivors to keep their mouths shut about what happened and them signing a nondisclosure agreement so we won't know what Obama obviously doesn't want us to know?

There's no other possible reason he would want them to sign that kind of agreement.

Once Gov. Rick Snyder (R) signed the law and appointed Orr, Detroit’s city contracts and public properties were subject to Orr’s sole discretion. Orr began selling off large chunks of public property, even attempting to sell off the city’s art collection until the state Attorney General blocked him
(Mitts probably buying the whole state that he and Anne grew up in;
planning to rename it Mittchigan)
If given the opportunity, any black resident or politician inside the city of Detroit would sell that artwork in the blink of an eye for untraceable cash. It's just mostly fancy art created by old white cracka's anyways. Who cares?

But from a political standpoint, the argument against the sale makes Detroit sound like it is a "cultural center" of the Midwest and worthy of salvation.

Why did Motown and Berry Gordy get the hell outta there? Because art, any form of art, is the antithesis of what Detroit is today.

Michigan isn't in a state of emergency. It's only the city of Detroit, you fucking idiot.

How about nobody do anything and just let a city that continually gives itself cancer die?

How about changing something. If you don't change anything, only an idiot would expect something different.
Democrats instituting so-called "progressive" regressive policies caused Detroit to self destruct.
You won't change anything if you don't change politics.

Let Detroit die. Move the Tigers to Indianopolis. Move the Lions to Toronto. That's the only thing anyone cares about in Detroit.

On a much smaller scale Baltimore nearly crashed and burned years ago and turned to some unique programs to pull solid citizens back into the city. The efforts must have been successful eh?
