Neither Republicans nor Democrats outside of Detroit owe
them a dime.

They did it to themselves, whatever their racial makeup.

We already were forced, via Obama, to bail out the automobile
industry. We owe nothing more.

In early December 1998, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol bodyguard for Lt. Gov. Fallin resigned after admitting to unprofessional conduct. The Fallins had filed for divorce the previous week, amid allegations by her estranged husband that she had an affair with a bodyguard.

Public Safety Commissioner Bob Ricks issued a statement saying that rumors had surfaced in early September about alleged unprofessional conduct between a member of the executive security detail and the lieutenant governor. According to Ricks, the trooper first denied the allegations, but, when questioned again in October, admitted to the improprieties.

t-evantalibanicals swallow again.

We often hear claims that any bankruptcy of Detroit would be unfair to current city retirees. Yet, these same retirees are the very same former employees who voted to form bargaining units to get corrupt politicians to make promises that were impossible to keep. Shouldn't they do their fair share just like they would have the taxpayer do?

You are absolutely right.

The problem is that those looking at dramatic reductions in
their pensions forget that it was they who voted for both
city leaders (always Democrat) and union representatives
(always Democrat) thinking there would never be consequences
for their votes. They fell back on the mode of always
looking for a better deal. Now it has finally bitten them
in the butt. So much for checking off names on a ballot
without thinking of the consequences.

You are right. The Blame of Detroit belongs with the ones who made the policies and those who accepted them as the gospel. By making no choice is making a choice by doing nothing. Black, white, Democrat or Republican they all failed. Some or more to blame then others, life sucks live with it.

The DETROIT Bailout should be the other, "Judge the Elected" vote.
First was NSA, those who voted to keep it should return to private practice, next there should be term limits.
