There is no city in our great nation that typifies the hypocrisy of the Democrats more than the City of Detroit.

Detroit is on the verge of bankruptcy. They have an Emergency Financial Manager running the city in place of the Mayor and the City Council.

Their last Mayor is in jail for ripping off taxpayers for millions while banging his top aide at resorts all over the world - and charging it all to the citizens.

They have a Police Department that has undergone multiple leadership changes due to mismanagement, sex scandals, criminal activities by the Police leadership, and abuse of power.

Their former City Council President (and wife of Democrat Congressman John Conyers) is just getting out of prison after being sentenced because of accepting bribes.

This is the Democrat Party of America.

And now, the City that is broke and corrupt is sending 4 managers that are facing criminal charges for pension fund mismanagement to Hawaii on a City paid trip to study "best practices" in pension fund management.

The citizens of Detroit will never learn. They just keep electing these Democrat crooks.

Detroit's pension boards pay $22K to send 4 trustees to Hawaii

Four trustees of Detroit’s two public pension funds are heading to a Hawaiian beach resort this weekend with their $22,000 tab paid for by the funds, which are mired in claims of mismanagement and said to be at least $600 million underfunded.
.
.
.
Records obtained by the Free Press under the Freedom of Information Act show the expenses cover airfare — including a first-class flight for one trustee — lodging at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort in Honolulu, registration fees, meals and a per diem for miscellaneous expenses.
.
.
.
Stanford University professor Joe Nation, who specializes in public employee pensions, criticized the trip.

“Trustees don’t need to go to Waikiki to learn about best practices,” he told the Free Press.“Everyone knows they go there and they don’t work very hard. That’s just the nature of it.”
.
.
.
In Detroit — a city on the brink of municipal bankruptcy in which leaders increasingly make financial decisions with an every-dollar-counts philosophy — public pension funds soon could be facing changes.

Emergency manager Kevyn Orr’s financial report to the state on Monday said the city’s pension funds are underfunded by at least $600 million, although the funds consistently have said they are adequately funded. Orr’s evaluation of the funds’ assets and whether any changes are coming to future benefits is ongoing, he said Monday in a wide-ranging interview with the Free Press.

OK, is the penny stock troll who claims to be from Seattle really saying there is no source posted for the Detroit story?

Did the penny stock guru look at post #2 that went up one minute after the first post?

I guess when your only skill is being a troll on some public discussion board, you really don't have to have good reading skills, do you?

Good one Slew!
I didn't know you were the "Oopsie" cop. Of course it would follow the "Oopsie" criteria that you came up with.
Have a Daisey to go with that Oopsie?

Golly gee whiz.

Some penny stock troll is pissed off because the article in the Detroit Free Press does not say that the Administrators going to Hawaii for the Detroit Public Employee Pension Fund are Democrats.

WTF do you think they are? A Republican in downtown Detroit would be like me hanging out with Obama. It just does not happen.

I will make a deal with anyone on here. You bring me a list of all the Republicans that work in any capacity for the City of Detroit and I will give you $100 for every single one of them.

In return, I will give you a list of all the Democrats on the Detroit Public Payroll, and you give me $1 for each of them.

(Note: I did not use the word work when I spoke of Detroit Public Employees since over 25% of them are ghost employees according to the Detroit Free Press.)

You are going to owe me a whole big pile of money.
