Well waco don’t know if I qualify for being a liberal. Yes I am broad minded and open to progress but think I lack the quality you may be seeking. You know how low my self esteem is. OH if its Wall Street or most foxy sites, then I have already been banned from their sites for whip lashing them with tooooo many facts.
Have you taken the conservative strategy to retreat without success? With no exit strategy. How about we rally the guy’s and politely answer these desperate calls from these damsels in distress? We could broadcast out a message to prudent intelligent individuals on these threads that are overcome with this ROVE-ing tactic of hacking. Typical conservative ploy. Here just send this message out and then wait for results.
Hey guy’s have come up with a way to deal with these robo dating calls. Forward them to your attorney general office or your government officials of your choice. Take care not to send them to any Teabagger as they are susceptible to such advertisements and will clog up the lines of communication through out the nation. Lets give Topix a hand. Ha, ha, support big government. Take advantage of the socialism of our government. Let the politicians explain why they are swamped besieged and overcome with these calls from so many desperate females.

All of this is interesting but what is your point. Detroit is in Michigan which is headed by Snyder a Tea {R} governor that has little to nothing and even obstruct Detroit’s efforts to get their act together. Now you haven’t forgotten the Bushwhacking episodes that made Detroit a ghost town.
Miami never had a {R} Mayor and your point? Are you trying to use the separate and divide conquer, tactics of the republicans. LOL… look how well that worked for them. Now they are spiraling down and out in fragments.
Be careful when you are using speculative articles as to what might be in California or any where else. How many times they were off the mark? CBS as any speculator do not have the crystal ball. I know this because I have it…. LOL
Prove YOUR point, go ahead and rub that ball. Nothing I posted was of my making and how did Bush do anything?

LOL you make derogatory remark on liberalism and then cut and paste what the conservatives swamped this nation, with their deregulated capitalist fiasco economy. What are you hinting? You want to go back and defend the conservatives failed policies on democratic capitalist economy. Do try to focus on just what your trying to accomplish. Your drifting like a Defiant Tex. Emulating an intoxicated Tea partier. Stumbling all about with incoherence as their guide.
I guess I should have explained to the wondering mind, the entire post was the from the same article. Sorry it wasn't "crystal" clear for you. The pattern is becoming clearer everyday on the fall of the economy and strange as it may seem, the Democrats always seem to be at the helm. It's more likely to be because of the lack of back bone to stop the "Great I'll Give You Everything" philosophy. Housing, food, phones, medical, on and on it goes. Then implosion and it's the Republican's fault, no wait, Bush's fault.

Bush seems to know how to manipulate most of the Democrats. It was always best to deal with him face to face. Being it was his rules we always waited for the phone call.

"In 1950, Detroit was America’s fifth-largest city, with a population of 1.84 million. Median household income was higher than in any other city. So was the percentage of people who owned their own homes. Detroit was then arguably the best big city in which to live.
Today, Detroit leads Forbes magazine’s list of “most miserable cities.” It’s the fourth-worst run, according to Money magazine. It’s second in violent crime, third in murders. Nearly half of Detroiters of working age are unemployed.
The population of Detroit has fallen by more than half, to 706,585. It’s now the size it was in 1910. Median household income is barely half the U.S. average ($27,862 vs.$51,413). The average price of a house in Detroit is just $16,800, by far the lowest in the country.
There are a couple of smaller cities which, arguably, are in even worse shape. But no city has fallen so far, so fast.
Some decline was inevitable because the world of 1950 was uniquely beneficial to Detroit. The most important industry at that time was the automobile industry, and because Europe and Japan were still rebuilding from the devastation of World War II, Detroit had a virtual monopoly. Detroit had been the heart of the “arsenal of democracy” and had a more skilled labor force than any other city on the planet.
The U.S. auto industry tumbled from its lofty perch in the 1970s, in part because by then Europe and Japan could offer serious competition. The Arab oil embargo after the 1973 Yom Kippur War sparked for the first time the interest of Americans in smaller cars, which the Germans and Japanese were building, but Detroit was not.
But most wounds were self-inflicted. Cars built by GM, Ford, Chrysler and American Motors cost more and were less reliable than cars built in Germany and Japan.
Chiefly responsible were the contracts won by the United Auto Workers, then America’s most powerful union. It wasn’t so much the lavish pay and benefits as the featherbedding work rules which guaranteed cars built in Michigan would cost more and break down more often than cars built elsewhere.
The auto industry has bounced back some. Several Ford and GM sedans are now rated as more reliable than the imports with which they compete. But Detroit’s decline has accelerated. That’s because for half a century, Detroit has been governed by the policies President Obama advocates.(Detroit’s last Republican mayor was Louis Miriani, who left office in 1962.)"
I'd bet a paycheck that Detroit's demise has more to do with free trade agreements and outsourcing of manufacturing jobs. Blame both sides for allowing this to happen. Manufacturers fail to see the danger in outsourcing as it continues to kill the working class and soon consumers will have no money available to purchase their products. Greed will no doubt have a big hand in the collapse of our economic system.

http://datadrivendetroit.org/web_ftp/Project_... A few interesting facts about Detroit. Whatever or whoever, the past you can not change. The question is what to do today? The fact remains is the labor force there now is made up of what? The stats shown on this site and the census dept are not encouraging to recruit companies. That leaves who to save Detroit or should it be saved?

Just got back from the politix site as they are having a problem with posting my last reply. Typical problem I run into some of these right wing sites. So drop a couple and move on. That should work for a little while. If it follows some of the other sites of the right wing even that will corrupted and cycles delaying problems that just waste my time. They are not the only pebble on the beach. Interesting though: have noticed that their followers are falling off and what remains the obvious uneducated minions or robo commenter’s just cycling around in circles.
That said sure. I’ll give your site a shot. A good day is when I’m engulfed with right wing ideologue’s. So long as they are not going to waste my time. I can get my word out efficiently through CBS, CNBC, N.Y. Times, etc. etc. LOL I even seek out local right wing news agencies when I have the time and run them until they kick me off and then move on. That’s when I go slumming on lazy days. So what’s this site you are referring to? Lets see if I can stir their kettle of Red Herring Stews. Ha, ha,

Dang nab it just pick out what you want to debate from that vast book on Detroit’s circumstances. Don’t be afraid to read and comment on it. Then if you find some fact sources, condense a portion that supports your comment and keep location of your source for others to verify.“IF” this is the same study report I have already gone through about a year ago then I’ll recognize most of what you are trying to say. Keep in mind that Snyder’s {Gov.} obsession to micro administer his governorship, has sent Detroit, a state overseer that has authority over the local authority. Detroit will survive but not as eloquently. as it has in the past. Population will disperse to rural areas stressing their economy and others will seek larger cities for the opportunities they offer. What will remain is a force to resurrect the city with a more profound grasp of how to organize a more diverse low keyed industrial corporations. That will be decades in the making.

Yes agree that the USA has and will feel the bite of the “Liberal International Free Trade Markets” for years to come. USA is as powerless as was communism to reigning in the eventual leveling effects of the Liberal International Free Trade Markets. Just as the orthodoxy communism walls came a tumbling down without a shot being fired! So shall the corruptive deregulations of our capitalism. To compete in such an arena of Liberal International Free Trade Markets, sovereignties will require, that they are efficient in their finances, as well as securing the security of their labor forces. Failure to do so, will result in diminishing their ability to effectively trade on the Liberal International Free Trade Markets.
Suggest some sources for you to explore. One is Michael Mandelbaum. Economic advisors to various presidents here in the USA and a few other outlying sovereignties. Has several books on the subject of Liberal International Free Trade Markets. One to get you started “The Ideas That Conquered The World”. Another one, on more specifics of internal inequality of economics and their results would be; Joseph E. Stiglitz One of his books just released “ The Price Of Inequality”. He also has a history as an economic advisor, on the presidents councils. Oh did I mention holds the Nobel Prize in Economics.

What is this the Tea’s Red Herring Menu.
Your wearing your Tin Hat again I’ll just take one of the erroneous drivel you are sputtering about and most only the most Tea intoxicated are still feasting on those Red Herrings. Supplied with a bottomless Tea Pot to wash it all down with.
Your inability to fathom the IRS is so foxy.. Naïve…! a raz a maz a tazWith …
All this IRS Issue amounts to are the red herrings of republicans. That’s all they have left to serve you with their TEA and with a raz a maz a taz. A cha cha…
IRS Use is nothing new. Nor is it for political activism and social groups. Little to nothing at present linking Obama with fore knowledge of this recent interest of the IRS’s investigations, to enforce Federal Tax Code 501 [c][4].
F.D.R. used it against it Sen. Huey Long of Louisiana and Hoover’s Treasury Andrew Melton.
Nixon against all those on his “enemies list‘. Boasting on the Watergate tapes to his aids of his use of it. Assigned George Schultz to investigate Hennery Kimmelan private business man that backed McGovern. Stating “ What’s he trying to do? Say that we can’t play politics with the IRS.
Eisenhower against the communist party.
Kennedy against nonprofit organizations. Hmm similar to what Obama is being accused of.
Carter’s IRS director Jerome Kurtz ended tax exempt status to private Christian schools.
Clinton had the IRS audit the Heritage Foundation and the NRA.
George W. Bush against the NAACP for urging his defeat in 2004. Languished in the courts for 2 years. IRS alleged improper political activity. Civil Rights argued it was a victim of political bias.
True as far back as F.D.R. Use of the IRS has been a bipartisan thing said Bruce Barllett, a tax official of Ronald Reagan and H.W. Bush.“BUT” this one of Obama’s seems to have originated from the bottom up rather than from the top down.
IRS’s duties are to weed out organizations that qualify for tax exemptions and those that do not. Tax exempt organizations cannot show any bias to any political candidate or party.
Number of applications for tax exempt status doubled to the pre elections of 2012. Fueling that rise was derived by the Supreme Court’s decision of 2010 {Citizens United} obscuring differences of political activism, mainly from the right, from social welfare groups. Promoting lawyers’ to find loopholes. Said Historian Stephen Hess.
This amounts to nothing more than republicans redundant strategy of red herrings for their herd. If IRS did not investigate, then republicans would charge them of being guilty for not performing their duties as defined in 501 [c][4]. Typical ploy of extremist right wing.
Red herring being served at this time is to distract their herd from recognizing Obama’s achievement in reigning in the deficit in record time. Which they will soon be serving ominous warnings the deficit is decreasing the debt TOO FAST and will prove disastrous.
GOP { Get Obama Persecuted } at all cost . Venomous deceitful character of republicans. Has been and is continuously being illuminated.
Just keep wasting your time with bogus nonsense playing around inside your Tin Hat. Hey what no FEMA concentration camps. LOL you are so funny..

As much fun we have with these right wing nuts lets get back down to what are facts. Something that will stick with you rather than the Red Herrings we keep getting from the Tea party and the republicans ideologues.
Fortunately there is hope and it is being demonstrated, more and more every day, with the moderate republicans and the intellectuals of the party that are distancing themselves from the dysfunctional “Ideologues” of their party. Obama has aided them with his brilliance. A Tea bulwark has fallen.
Obamacare drives a wedge, fracturing republican party. Phoenix Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer pulled off a major coup by distancing herself, along with a few staunch republican state senators, from their extremist elements within their party. Rallying the support by emphasizing “Moral and Monetarily Correct”. Stating “It’s pro-life, it’s saving lives, it is creating jobs, it is saving hospitals,” and “I don’t know how you can get any more conservative than that,”
Typical of the intoxicated Tea Party’s strategy. Derogatory remarks are let loose with no substance to any issue for debate. Going so far as to invoke some religious sniping by A.J LaFaro chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, comparing Jan Brewer to Judas! Libertarian blog post by Tyler S. Boyer on the “Freedom Works” site, refers to Jan as “An unfortunate display of ineptitude.” Derogatory continues to surface from the right wing extremist. Reagan once said” Republicans should not speak ill of one another” Something the extremist have ignored, as they have demonstrated on various issues, ignoring supporting their constituents for some personal ego political ploy. Ignoring the facts that voters agreed, in 1996 and in 2000, to extend Medicaid coverage to childless adults, one of the main beneficiaries of the Medicaid expansion.
Mr. Coughlin states “Ideologues have their agendas” Mr. Coughlin goes on to say “and the part of the party that’s taking issue with the governor right now is all made up of ideologues”!
Moderate republicans will be required to expand their platforms to educate their constituents of the fallacies of the zealot extremist policies. Focusing on the more intelligent groups within their spheres such as women and independents.
Bruce Merrill, political behaviorist senior research at Morrison Institute for Public Policy of the Arizona University states “how truly fractured the Republican Party in Arizona is.” expressly due to Obamacare.
“The real brilliance of Barack Obama when he made Medicaid an all-or-nothing proposition,” giving states no option but to cover individuals with incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty line if they were to qualify for federal reimbursement,“was that he pitted fiscally conservative Republicans against one another,” he said.
Governor Jan Brewer views it as merely bruised egos that will heal with time.“Nobody likes to lose, and that’s what happened”. AND this is but one example of many.
Tea will not be served…. Out of service…
