A Michigan judge on Friday ordered Detroit's emergency manager to withdraw a federal bankruptcy petition filed on behalf of the city, Reuters reported.

State Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina ruled that the law allowing Gov. Rick Snyder (R) to authorize the bankruptcy filing was unconstitutional, according to Reuters. Aquilina ruled in favor of Detroit retirees and workers who argued the Michigan Constitution protected the retirement benefits in their city pension funds.

I get it.

Exactly. In the water supply case, a private company would likely charge higher rates than the city, even though they might be more efficient. Government typically has no real idea what their services cost, and rarely include pension costs in the cost of service.
I don't think its likely at all. They still operate within budgets but their employees aren't motivated towards cost saving efficiencies.

Evidenced by his father getting his record for assault on an officer expunged along with his domestic violence charges that would've prevented legally owning a gun. So you think Johnson & Johnson would've funded his defense of he were considered Hispanic? You have to see things from black people eyes. The majority of white people see this type of injustice & say & do absolutely nothing. Meanwhile, it's happening to black folks on a daily basis. So, for the most part, it's you're either with me or against me! Y'all take it as racist because, you self identify the the true target of black folks frustrations. It just so happens that, the system is run by elite level white folks & the fact that most of y'all remain silent is like involuntarily siding with the elites. When I say elites, I mean from the top of the top, down to the court system where all white folks are privy to white privilege & blacks get crucified! If you're honest with yourself, you know I'm right!
thake a look at the case in the link, its exactly what you have been saying zimmerman is guilty of. the one big diference is no one claimed the killer was white so there was no national news coverage,outrage or protest. The only reason you give a shit about trayvon is you were lied to and believed a white guy killed him. The outrage the black community has for zimmerman is pure racism based on the lie about him being a white man.

If you look back at the budgets, spending kept apace with the bracketing years throughout the surpluses.
Oh, and Gingrich was only in office for the first few months of the first surplus year before resigning.
Increased revenues led to the surpluses.

Cisterns can be problematic. In urban areas, water run-off will be heavily polluted so collection only from roof-tops would be feasible. Rain washes the atmosphere during its nucleation and on it's way down. How clean is today's urban rainwater?
But where do you then place the Solar Panels? Can rooftop run-off be compatible with Solar Installations?
In suburbs and even in rural areas water run-off can be polluted with chemical over-sprays. Again, rooftop collection only.
But, again, where do you then place the Solar Panels? Under the Wind Farms shading the ground-cover causing desert fields and dust storms?
A cistern for every 100 acre farm is reasonable but a cistern on every rooftop in America shortchanges the aquifers. This cheating of the groundwater sources also happens with Municipal Storm Sewer containment designs. Aquifer depletion is a big problem across the country and especially in the Southwest....
There are no free lunches.
What happens to water that lands on solar collectors, does it burn up or something?

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.
Mississippi in the Sixties? A neo-Nazi rally? A Klan conclave?
No, its 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."

Geez you don't like anyone-Racist one is usasince1680--Illegal aliens are not welcome in Israel, they are not citizens. Most countries don't want illegals the way O'bama does. Israel protects their own people. O'bama doesn't. I can't find in your article that backs up your propaganda of Israel wants to get rid of all blacks. You are making that up again aren't you? LIAR.

All of this legal tangle-wood was anticipated. There will be Liberal judges to appeal around, of course. That's life.

Schuette was ready and is appealing immediately. Every Union, Pension crook and interested party is going to sue, sue, sue and then sue again.

Rick Snyder and Kevin Orr knew this going in with eyes wide.

thinkprogress, the NAACP and the Magic Negro will of course try to get some mileage off of this in playing the Race Card, Partisanship and pure knee-jerk Liberalism.
