Yep must carry on with the Union contracts that are based on last year salary for retirement purposes where the employee is given up to 20 hours per week of overtime for the entire year to
bolster their earnings so they can walk out the
door with a $92K per year retirement.

Policies like this are what brought this about and of course they are Union clownbots that negotiated with elected clownbots with the people not being represented at the table.

Bailout - h e l l no - you earned your way into this mess now work your way out of it (if your capable) that is.

Not one penny in bailouts.

Nobody has offered, agreed to, or said they would even discuss bailouts from the fed or state. People can ask for anything and we knew they would.

This nation carried on during great depression. If a huge meteorite crashed in middle of this mess, i am not sure it would have ever woke these clowns up to reality of their reckless spending and in many instances stealing from taxpayers, everyone was happy with their pay and never conceived how long it would last. Auto companies r a small part of the balance sheet problem, but accountability was never really thought of . The state in my opinion needs to start overseeing many of these cities and county pay sheets . Does anyone see a problem with state giving final approval to local government expenditures? Has it ever been tried in history of michigan? It certainly couldn't hurt.

"The TRUTH can be a REAL BYTCH, but that doesn't make it any less REAL or any less TRUE!" (TRAINAISM, 2013)

FACT: George Bush's "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT" was the 2nd Worst Educational Act in U.S. History! It's been over 12-years and "LITTLE TRAVONTAE" still can't Count, Recite his ABC's or Write his Name! In the meantime, China has developed the Greatest Public Education System on Planet Earth, and they are quickly moving into a position where they can Control the entire Global Economy!... as we sit back waiting for Little Travontae to learn how to Recite his Letters, Count to 10 and Scribble his Name on a piece of paper!

FACT: The Worst Educational Policy in U.S. History was President Obama's Executive Order demanding that Publicly Funded School throughout America to "STOP DISCIPLING BLACK STUDENTS" or Risk Losing their Federal Funding!
