"Councilman Kwame Kenyatta and a packed room of Detroiters warned today of an impending revolt against state intervention, urging residents to stock up on canned food and supplies."

And the headline will read:

"EFM rioters lay waste to Detroit: damage reported to be in the hundreds of dollars"

Many black people recognize Kenyatta by the technical term "goofball" for the methods he uses to present things. Be ready for tomorrow, but you don't need to stockpile a year's worth of MREs yet.

The new EFM will take some time to begin and longer to actually do anything. He does not arrive on the scene without studying the situation first. He is coming from a job making $1 million per year to one paying $275K. He doesn't want to stay forever and he wants to be a success. One thing he said was he'd like to see the water department remain under Detroit control and turn a profit that could be used to help the city. If you eliminate the corruption of Ferguson types and the inefficiencies of not collecting the bills, a cash cow may exist there. It would also help not to let some hydrant and underground leaks go on indefinitely.

If the EFM shows this approach overall and succeeds, the protestors will be eating crow or "Cobo salmon."

These protesters need management their own selves. Most are losers from the church the Shrine of Black Madonna. They are only trying to help their affiliates that are Detroit City Council members.
They carry no weight nor merit.

Most can't even count to the number 10, yet alone know anything about how a democratic society is ran. They hold up protest signs as part of their assignments from the church of the Shrine of Black Madonna, as a mere hope to gain some acknowledgement from the church, so they will be avail a bigger apartment. In this case the one with the loudest voice doesn't have to cook dinner tonight for the rest of their cult.

The only thing that needs to be taken seriously is what are the members of the City Council specifically JoAnne Watson and Kwame Kenyatta hiding? There just might be a great possibility that a few of the vendors for some city service were granted by the Detroit City Council might of received some type of leeway based on political affiliations with certain members of the Detroit City Council.

<There is no doubt that monies granted for certain operations within the City of Detroit have been mismanaged>.

There should be a law across the whole political spectrum <Federal, State, and Local> against politicians creating undue hardship for the taxpayers.
