The 2011 article at the below link says Oregon has the worse funded pension in the country. It is just a matter of time.

It's funny how people use labels to blame something on. The liberals did it, no the conservatives did it no the blue pajama lovers did it. Enough with the labels. A new study showed 99.9999% of people who used these labels don't have a clue what it even means. They just repeat what they hear from radio and tv like brainwashed sheeple. If you can not legitimately identify a person as being the cause of something then you are only blowing smoke. Labels are an easy cop out.

Exactly! The White "Liberals" and their African wards have been plucking the goose that lays the golden eggs. Soon, the goose will be eaten. Then what?

the actual culprit was mismanagement lack of planning and no leadership in city hall or industry.

1) Michigan has a history of relying on three industries to carry the state financially.

A)auto mfg ,along with auto parts suppliers, B)farming, and C) education/research,
when you have all of your economic eggs in just these few baskets your asking for trouble.

2) The mismanagement part of this equation occurred in the late 70's when the fuel shortages caused America auto buyers to look for smaller more fuel efficient autos to replace the gas guzzlers Detroit was producing.

Consider that the managers of the big three could look just out side the office windows and see more and more foreign cars driving up and down I 65 but they continued to ignore market trends which caused the beginning of the end for the big three.

3) mismanagement at the state, county, and city level ( by all administrations) ignored the slow down in revenue to the state, county and city treasuries they continued to spend money even though revenues were slowing down.

Government never cuts, sun sets, closes out any program they just continue to spend.

government continued to give in to what ever demands unions made because union block voting kept people in offices for which they were not qualified to occupy.

besides these office holders would not be in power when the big union payout bills came due, that would be someone else's mess and responsibility to pay for.

then add in the city hall corruption, voters and union goons forget that absolute power corrupts absolutely. and Detroit city hall is a text book case for that axiom.

also consider the mismanagers of state, county and city government over taxed, over regulated and over grafted business, driving many to other more business friendly states or countries.

so there is plenty of blame to go around so try to look at the big picture and include the players when you assign blame.

remember that axiom from economics 101 which states.

"what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of"

now look around your city county, state see the results of 60 years of ignoring that axiom,

see all the welfare queens and illegal immigrants??, well that's what you subsidized,

see all the jobs??

opps, I forgot you over taxed over regulated them so much they had to leave the city and state for more business friendly environments else where.

but you still got the empty mfg buildings not producing anything or tax revenue......

ru retarded? liberalism is a social disease, it destroys everything it touches, look at all the states that are pratically bankrupt, education, politics, mindstyle = lifestyle, liberals identify themselfs as liberal, associate with other liberals, and the basis is liberalism is lack of standards, principles and morality, so putting a label takes all that away?

yes, u r retarded!

What is liberalism, and where's the scientific evidence claiming it's a disease? Would you know a liberal if you saw one? How would you know they are a liberal? People who use labels are morons and nutcases and there is actual scientific data to back that up.

Where was that "scientific" data gotten? Expensive taxpayer funded Government institutions of higher "learning", Government institutions that benefited from heavy infusions of taxpayer provided Government "stimulus" money? Don't the "Liberal" revolutionaries control those Government institutions?

Just curious how you can tell without meeting someone if they are a left winger, right winger, center winger, top winger, bottom winger, etc. Or can you tell by the way they dot their t's or cap their letters and is it the commas, seriously, I want to know. Is it the type of font they use? Or is it anyone who doesn't agree with you? No, really, I want to know. Educate us oh might retard....

According to the instruction manual:

"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." (Matthew 7:15)

"Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?" (Matthew 7:16)

"Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit." (Matthew 7:17)

"A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit." (Matthew 7:18)

"Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire." (Matthew 7:19)

"Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." (Matthew 7:20)

only a retard would try to justify a false position by challenging a correct one, like I said, look up the research, its there, but maybe you are one of those inner city black liberals that destroy everything you touch, you are ignorant and have a keyboard, but I guess that makes you somebody so keep typing,

Thank you. There is an 800 lbs. elephant standing in the room, you terrified people you. Life's short, live in reality. Why do you think Africa is the way it is? Haiti? It's not the evil white-man, that brought food, medicine, clothing, law and order, otherwise places where the white man never colonized should be thriving. So, just how are Ethiopia and Somalia and places like that doing? Same as every other black hell-hole. They are the cause, not a symptom.
